I think the reviewer inside me has always appreciated snarky and sarcastic commentary to movies. Ever since I was a kid, I loved when people made their own jokes and comments during a film more than the film itself at times. It’s no wonder I fell in love with Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K for short).
I’m not alone either. I think the day that a new season of MST3K was announced, it was the “squee” heard ‘round the world. The premier date of April 14th is closing in and if you are not familiar with the show…what is wrong with you???
I’m kidding, but seriously, if you have never watched an episode, now is a good time as any. It’s just in time since Netflix announced that 20 fan favorite episodes are available to stream starting March 15th.
While the official MST3K Youtube channel does offer full episodes (more and more all the time) they come infrequently and are fairly limited. They also stream live marathons like they did on Thanksgiving Day. It’s also offered on a variety of other streaming services, but now it time for Netflix-ers to rejoice.
According to AVClub.com, this is the full list of fan favorites available to stream tomorrow:
- Catalina Caper
- Future War
- The Giant Gila Monster
- Hercules Against the Moon Men
- Horrors of Spider Island
- I Accuse My Parents
- Jack Frost
- Manos: The Hands of Fate
- Merlin’s Shop of Mystical Wonders
- Pod People
- Puma Man
- Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
- Space Mutiny
- Teenagers From Outer Space
- Time Chasers
- Zombie Nightmare
That’s a fair enough start for the uninitiated and a great list of old favorites for those who are counting the days until the new episodes come out. Looking for something non-fiction and more disturbing? Check out what’s coming out this week on the Manson murders.
This is also the last week to vote in the iHorror Awards. Don’t forget to cast your vote for your favorites here.
