Description: How can something so awful be so much fun? That's a riddle solved once again by the men, women, and robots of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which turns affectionate mockery into an art form in this new collection of deliriously funny episodes from the beloved TV series. Joel, Mike, Tom Servo, Crow, and the usual gang of misfits take us on another memorable ride through four films that only the films mothers could love. Fasten your seatbelts. The Satellite of Love is back in action at warped speed. ? Amazon.com


The latest Mystery Science Theater 3000 box set is welcome of course, but illustrates that at the current tempo most of us will all be long dead before every single episode of this series is finally released on official DVD by Rhino one day.
