I don't know what this is.
) Is it a show that's currently on?
Oh my goodness!!! You don't?! Well you're in for a nice explanation then.
Well this is a show where full length bad B movies are shown while a human and two robots riff on it. It was on for 11 seasons, including a revival on Netflix with a new season that came out in April. I'm watching it from the first season on network tv in 1989. It's funny and sometimes the movies are loveable, yet still bad. Its so fun to watch. The theme song says it best.
In the not-too-distant future --
Next Sunday A.D. --
There was a guy named Joel,
Not too different from you or me.
He worked at Gizmonic Institute,
Just another face in a red jumpsuit.
He did a good job cleaning up the place,
But his bosses didn't like him
So they shot him into space.
We'll send him cheesy movies,
The worst we can find (la-la-la).
He'll have to sit and watch them all,
And we'll monitor his mind (la-la-la).
Now keep in mind Joel can't control
Where the movies begin or end (la-la-la)
Because he used those special parts
To make his robot friends.
Robot Roll Call: (All right, let's go!)
Cambot! (Pan left!)
Gypsy! (Hi, girl!)
Tom Servo! (What a cool guy!)
Croooow! (He's a wisecracker.)
If you're wondering how he eats and breathes
and other science facts (la la la),
Then repeat to yourself, "It's just a show,
I should really just relax
For Mystery Science Theater 3000!"
