Over Thanksgiving, we had new Mystery Science Theater 3000 for which to be thankful. Netflix dropped a new season of six episodes, titled The Gauntlet. Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) and the robots were forced to watch six movies back to back and riff on them, although Netflix allowed people to watch them movie by movie.
Those movies included Mac and Me, the infamous McDonald’s and Coca-Cola produced E.T. ripoff, Asylum’s knockoff Atlantic Rim, the Roger Corman Abyss knockoff Lords of the Deep, The Day Time Ended, Killer Fish and Ator, the Fighting Eagle. All had plenty of opportunities to drop running gags like “Look out for snakes,” “Pretty nice” and sing some song parodies.
Now that we’re all back at work, Ray spoke with /Film by phone about some of the specific jokes in Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Gauntlet, plans for next season, and what kind of movies he’d never do on MST3K.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is returning to Netflix with an all-new season, and the premiere date couldn’t be more perfect.

The very first episode of the show launched on Thanksgiving Day in 1988, and in its original incarnation, the series would run “Turkey Day” marathons on Thanksgiving. Netflix also announced the show’s renewal last Thanksgiving.
So break out the stuffing, dump the cranberry sauce out of the can, and get ready for a whole new season of riffing on terrible movies. More on the Mystery Science Theater 3000 new season premiere below.
