Some of you who've been posting for a number of years and know me may have noticed during that time that I'm a colossal and devoted fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988-99) and have made more than my share of posts and random comments about both the series and its characters. There are other fans of the MST3K universe here on The Trek BBS and I hope this new thread gets your collective attention and starts some very fun conversations about the show and how it's impacted you on a personal level over the different periods of time that you've been fans. So let's get started: When did you first discover MST3K? Who was and is currently your favorite host? Do you prefer the Comedy Channel/Comedy Central episodes or the Sci-Fi years of the show that aired following the change of networks and the theatrical release of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie in 1996? Favorite riffs and quotes? Sit back, relax, enjoy some chili peppers (warning: they're known to burn a gut) and hamdingers and let the memories take you back in time to when folks from the Upper Midwest teamed up with wisecracking robots and mad scientists to give America and the world one of the funniest TV shows ever produced. What do you think, Sirs?
