Oh, don't get me started.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 is without a doubt TV's most brilliantly hilarious cult sensation. Created around the same time as the Simpsons, this 2-hour block show was and still is the most creative and original show to grace television. This was the show I watched when I was just a wee lad, staying up late for the firsts times. Watching glorious marathons (Turkey Day!!!) and drumming the theme song into my head. People say Futurama was treated unfairly, rightfully so, but MST3K was treated like shit, and still
lasted 10 years, even producing a movie (which ironically had a runtime the same length as the show itself).
I try to buy all the books that have been written by the retired cast and crew of MST3K, and I wish they would make appearances over here
, it's only a stone's throw from Minnesota, c'mon!"It is my hope that as long as there are bad movies (a sure bet as long as Bruce Willis acts) there will be someone out there sitting in the dark with two plastic puppets, shouting derision at the screen. In reruns at least, that person will be me."
