Mystery Science Theater 3000

Mystery Science Theater 3000
Mystery Science Theater 3000 is an American cult television comedy series created by Joel Hodgson and produced by Best Brains, Inc. The series features a man and his robot sidekicks who are trapped on a satellite in space by an evil scientist and forced to watch a selection of terrible movies, especially (but not initially limited to) science fiction B-movies. To keep sane, the man and his robots make a running commentary on the film, making fun of its flaws and wisecracking (or "riffing") their way through the film in the style of a movie theater peanut gallery. Series creator Hodgson originally played the stranded man, Joel Robinson, for five-and-a-half seasons. When he left in 1993, series head writer Michael J. Nelson replaced him as new B-movie victim Mike Nelson, and continued in the role for the rest of the show's run. Starring: Joel Hodgson as Joel Robinson; Mike Nelson as Himself; Kevin Murphy as Tom Servo; Trace Beaulieu as Crow/Dr. Clayton Forrester; Bill Corbett as Crow/Brain Guy; Jim Mallon as Gypsy; Patrick Brantseg as Gypsy; J. Elvis Weinstein as Dr. Larry Ernhardt; Mary Jo Pehl as Pearl Forrester/Magic Voice; Jan L. Johnson as Magic Voice; and Alexandra Carr as Magic Voice.
