We’ll send him cheesy movies, the worst we can find (la-la-la)
BLOG GUY! I’m SO excited! I just heard my favorite TV show from the last century may return! Do you recall Mystery Science Theater 3000?
Sure. MST3K was my favorite, too. A guy and some robots were up in space, and an evil genius made them watch the worst movies, as an experiment.
You would see the awful movie, and in the foreground the shadowy cast would make funny remarks from theater seats. Very hip, smart-ass pop culture stuff.
I KNEW you’d be a fan! You don’t have any more of a life than I do! Is it being revived?
Not really. I saw a screening of a new one where the guys just make fun of an aquarium. As you see below, that gets old really fast.
That’s so depressing. Are their riffs even funny at all?
Only if you can laugh at Tom Servo shouting, “Look at that big fat fish!”
Sigh. Guess I’ll just have to be content with your blog, then.
