The only way for the gang to survive is through the ancient tradition of riffing – but will this be the season that breaks them for good?

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is returning to Netflix with an all-new season, and the premiere date couldn’t be more perfect. The new MST3K season will debut on Thanksgiving Day, which is kind of a staple for the show. 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.

New episodes from Mystery Science Theater 3000 are now available on Netflix. But since this is a show that first rose to fame in the 1990s and then disappeared at the turn of the century, some audiences who aren’t familiar with the show might need a proper introduction to the series that mocks some of the worst movies ever made. To help give Netflix subscribers a taste of what MST3K has to offer, they had Jonah Ray and his robot pals Tom Servo and Crow sit down to take some jabs at Netflix’s hit sci-fi series Stranger Things, and it’s just as great as you’d hope.

In the not-too-distant future (this Friday, April 14, to be exact), Mystery Science Theater 3000 will return, bringing terrible movies and endless riffing along with it. The original iteration of the show ran for a whopping 10 seasons, spanning 197 episodes and a feature film, building a devoted cult following in the process. “Keep circulating the tapes!” became the show’s rallying cry, as fans would record episodes on VHS tapes (remember those?) and swap them amongst each other. Even if you weren’t familiar with what Mystery Science Theater (or MST3K, as most fans call it) was, there was a good chance that if you were flipping channels between 1988 and 1999, you likely came across it in its distinct form: a cheap-looking movie with three silhouettes down in the right-hand corner. It turned riffing on bad movies into an art form.
To celebrate the show’s return, I’ve gone ahead and assembled the best of the best – these are the greatest episodes of the series, a perfect marathon for seasoned fans and newcomers alike.
