I NEVER KNEW...
"Mystery Science Theater 3000" is one of the funniest shows I have ever watched on television. I had never watched an episode of it until this weekend... !
If you have never seen it, I think it isn't on television any more, and that you might be able to rent episodes at some video stores.
Each show features a bad movie, of B level or worse. The shows' commentators, Tom, Joel and Crow (pictured above in silhouette), make snarky comments throughout the movie. The comments are the kind I wish I could come up with even now and then, and the barrage is always so rapid-fire it has me in stitches. Comments are often made in humorous voices and consist of cliches, smart-ass stuff and general sarcasm about the crappiness of the film. Sometimes the commentators comment in unison, which is usually very precisely timed and is ultimately hilarious.
If you love "bad movies" as much as I do, you will probably love "Mystery Science Theater 3000", or "MST3K" as it is known to it's harder-core fans.
