The fandoms of video games and Mystery Science Theater 3000 cross over each other quite a bit. There’s just something about being a geek, nerd, or whatever semi-derogatory noun you want to go by, that makes you interested in playing video games and watching a bunch of guys sit around and make fun of old and bad movies. If you’ve been a fan of MST3K for a while then you know that the series is coming back with a fresh new revival, but if you want to watch some classic episodes then today is a very good day.
Twenty classic Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes are heading to Netflix ahead of the release of the brand new rebooted season. They will arrive on the streaming service tomorrow, March 15th, with the new season set to debut on April 14th with 14 totally new episodes. The new series will feature a brand new cast of characters, with series creator Joel Hodgson staying behind the camera, aside from possible cameos.
Here’s the list of classic MST3K episodes that will be arriving tomorrow on Netflix…
• Catalina Caper
• Future War
• The Giant Gila Monster
• Hercules Against the Moon Men
• Horrors of Spider Island
• I Accuse My Parents
• Jack Frost

• Merlin’s Shop of Mystical Wonders

Some definite classics in there, with “Manos” The Hands of Fate and Space Mutiny essentially topping every MST3K fan’s list of best episodes of all time. Some personal favorites of mine are on there as well though with Werewolf, Pod People, Laserblast, Puma Man, and Merlin’s Shop of Mystical Wonders. Yes, I’m a Mike fan, though Joel does an amazing job as well, of course.
