Mystery Science Theater 3000 has finally returned to our screens! Today, Netflix debuted the new season of MST3K subtitled The Return. In celebration of the new episodes, I’ll be reviewing the host segments of each episode of the season! Obviously, there will be spoilers ahead for the season, so don’t read this if you don’t want the Host Segments spoiled for you!
As this will end up being a long post, let me start off by talking about my impressions of the season as a whole. (more…)
Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return is the continuation of the cult favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000, a show that lampooned cheesy B-movies and aired for 10 seasons on Comedy Central and SciFi (Now SyFy). The reboot follows the same premise as the original: two mad scientists, Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day), daughter of Dr. Clayton Forrester, and TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt) capture a young worker from Gizmonic Institute, Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) and force him to watch cheesy movies in order to find the perfect movie for them to take over the world with. To keep his sanity, Jonah enlists the help of some robots on the Satellite of Love, Tom Servo (Baron Vaughn) and Crow T Robot (Hampton Yount), to riff the movies with him.
