Joel Hodgson says preproduction on new episodes of 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' is moving along, and he shared new details on the movies, theme song, and sets.
Listen up, everyone! We’ve got an incoming transmission from the Satellite of Love. The wildly successful Kickstarter campaign to bring Mystery Science Theater 3000 back to the airwaves is entering its final hours, with nearly $4.3 million (and climbing) already in the bank.
Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks, and one of the things we’re most thankful for — and we’re sure you are, too — is Mystery Science Theater 3000. The holiday holds a special place in MST3K creator Joel Hodgson’s heart as well. After all, the series aired its first-ever episode on a local Minneapolis station on Thanksgiving Day in 1988. Five years later, an ad sales executive suggested that Hodgson organize a Turkey Day marathon, giving viewers at home cinematic turkeys to watch while they chowed down on Thanksgiving dinner.
