On April 14th, a brand-new season of crowdfunded Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes will hit Netflix. But Netflix has something special for you right now while we wait.
20 classic episodes of the show have been added to the streaming service to get you in the mood for the new stuff.
The episodes include many fan favorites. Like Manos: The Hands of Fate, Time Chasers and Space Mutiny. But lets face it, they’re all classics in their own right. Netflix has used this strategy before, offering a show to its global audience just in time for a revival. They did it with Gilmore Girls for instance. It was available in the US since October 2014, but Netflix released the show worldwide on July 1st, just in time for the Year in the Life revival series, which made its debut the following November.
And now with these MST3k episodes, this could be its widest rollout since then. Fans have been waiting for a new MST3k show for awhile now and this selection of vintage MST3k episodes should help to whet our appetites while we are waiting for the new series to arrive. This is a very special gift to both longtime fans and new fans.
