For those of you who do not know, or have no taste in comedy (kidding...just kidding <3), Mystery Science Theater 3000 was a show that got its start on a very local, not-very-well-known TV channel sometime in the late 1980s. The premise is simple enough: a temporary worker is stranded on a satellite in space built by a mad scientist who forces the temp and his robot pals to watch woefully cheesy and stale movies with less publicity than most foreign films. And I say that with no feelings of injustice. In addition, the crew would come up with clever, often dangerous hijinks and skits to kill time after or before commercial breaks.
