Mystery Science Theater 3000 is an institution. Just about everyone with a passing knowledge of modern comedy is familiar with the image of three silhouettes — one human and two robots — making fun of bad movies. The widely beloved movie-mocking show has left a permanent thumbprint on modern popular culture before it was cancelled in 1999. But now it’s trying to stage a comeback.
Original series creator Joel Hodgson has launched a Kickstarter campaign to resurrect Mystery Science Theater 3000 and he needs your help. Yes, you. The MST3K fan with the disposable income. Do you want another season? Put your money where your mouth is and receive a new batch of episodes. And maybe some additional goods, depending on which tier you choose to back.
Hit the jump for more details on the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Kickstarter.

Please don’t take the commentary on the movies and TV shows too seriously, as they’re meant not to be reviews but rather previews that include the general thoughts and ramblings of a twice-committed DVD addict. In regards to movies and shows the author hasn’t seen, the DVD release is placed in its respective category based on critic and audience response.
MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 (20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION)
Complete with awesome tin packaging, 4 lobby cards and a figurine of Crow T. Robot, this MST3K 20th Anniversary set is a must-have for any fans of the series. The 4 previously unreleased episodes it houses are First Spaceship on Venus (an underrated gem), Laserblast (the last episode before Comedy Central dropped the show and it moved to the Sci-Fi channel), Werewolf (a personal favorite of mine – “It’s a WAHR-WILF!”), and Future War (the most recently made film to be featured on MST3K). Overall, an excellent collection of episodes, and a worthwhile set for fans to salivate over.
Notable Extras: Three-part “The Oral History of MST3K” feature, 2008 Comic-Con MST3K Reunion Panel, original film trailers, “Variations On A Theme Song” (featuring all six versions of the theme song).
