Wired Presents the Oral History of MST3K

Wired_MST3kUntil somebody is smart enough to do a real, professional documentary of Mystery Science Theater 3000 Brian Raftery of Wired has us covered in his extensive “Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Definitive Oral History of a TV Masterpiece“.

15 years after its depressing cancellation MST3K remains a perennial fan favorite. To call it “cult” undercuts its quiet, but massive, impact it had. Minute-for-minute no other show, before or since, has provided the sheer density of hilarity. We’ve had the pleasure of seeing Joel Hodgson speak about the origins of his particular brand of riffing and, if possible, left with even more respect for his understated genius.

This is an absolute must read for fans.
