Based on the TV show that had cobbled-together robots and a beleaguered janitor riotously riffing and cracking quips while watching B movies, the 30th anniversary tour has come up with a script that works in the first host alongside the show’s newest host.

Joel Hodgson is the creator of the show that became a cult hit, first on local TV in Minneapolis in 1988 and later on Comedy Central from 1989 to 1996. In the show coming to South Florida (and for the first time in 25 years), Hodgson re-creates his role of Joel Robinson, an unwilling test subject whom a mad scientist forces to watch corny and cheesy movies while imprisoned on a spacecraft. In the show’s premise, his character builds robot sidekicks to keep from going insane, and the television viewer sees the the cast in silhouette wisecracking in front of a projection screen. Joining Hodgson onstage at Parker Playhouse will be Jonah Ray, who plays the lead in the 2017 reboot of ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ on Netflix (after a less successful stint on the Sci-Fi Channel from 1997 to 1999) and traveled with a different version of the show last year titled ‘Watch Out for Snakes! Tour.’

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Lost and Found Collection (DVD Review)

Here we are again with Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Shout! Factory’s The Lost and Found Collection DVD set. These boxed sets are released semi-regularly with some nice extras and better quality episodes than what you might find floating around online or on bootlegs. The price is kind of steep, but if you’re a fan of the show, you know that these sets are definitely worth picking up.

In the case of The Lost and Found Collection, two previously-released MST3K boxed sets, Volumes XIV and XVII, have gone out of print due to Shout! Factory losing the rights to episodes featuring the movies Soultaker and The Final Sacrifice. Rather than sitting on the rest of the episodes in those sets, they’ve decided to repackage and re-release them. Better to keep them in print as long as possible, right?
