For those old enough to have been snarky in the 1990s, Mystery Science Theater 3000
was the best of bad TV. Each week, a man and his robots would watch the worst movies and shorts from outer space, making hilarious comments along the way. Cinematic train wrecks featured on the program included Teen-age Strangler, The Brain That Wouldn't Die,
and The Wild Wild World of Batwoman
. After the show went off the air in 1999, cast members began touring with two a similarly themed live series, Rifftrax and Cinematic Titanic.
In pleasant-yet-unexpected news, folks from MST3K
/Rifftrax appears to be returning for three new episodes, where they will be riffing on nature on the National Geographic channel.
