Mystery Science Theater:3000 25th Anniversary Introspective on WIRED Magazine

It’s been 25 years since Mystery Science Theater:3000 (or MST3K if you prefer) hit the national air waves. To celebrate, WIRED Magazine has posted a very in depth article they’re calling “Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Definitive Oral History of a TV Masterpiece” which goes into great detail covering the series from its inception to its end, including a detailed look into things like the fallout between creators Joel Hodgson and his partner Jim Mallon, which led to the eventual departure of Joel from the show altogether.
There have been many imitators as well as what could be considered continuations of the theme in the form of the creators going out on their own with RiffTrax and Cinematic Titanic, but nothing will ever really capture the lightning in the bottle that was Joel, Mike and the robots riffing B-Movies on the Satellite of Love.
The article itself is a fairly long read, but very informative. If you’re a MST3K fan you really need to check it out, and even if you’re not, you should make it a point to read the article and check the series out on Netflix.
