Week of 1-21 OT Thread: Mystery Science Theater 3000 to the Rescue!

Losses suck. Let's just establish that right off the bat. Snoozefests like yesterday's game against the Wild are games I despise, because falling asleep in the middle of a hockey game should never happen. But, yesterday's game was so boring...

Alright, my anti-Minnesota Wild rant is over.

Luckily for me, but not for the overwhelming majority of this forum, I'm in the west coast, so when crappy games that start a 5 like yesterday's happen, I can enjoy the rest of my evening starting at 7:45 or so.

Over the weekend, I discovered the greatness that is Mystery Science Theater 3000. For those of you who don't know what that is, myself included until last Friday, it's a show in which a man and two robots are trapped on a spaceship and are at the mercy of a mad scientist who subjects them to watching the most horrible movies ever made. Making fun of the movie as they're watching it is literally their only way to keep their sanity. It's nothing short of hysterical.

(I do not recommend watching MTS3K sober, because the movies they watch are so bad you will go insane, even with the commentary. Case in point, Manos: The Hands of Fate. In my opinion, THE WORST MOVIE OF ALL TIME.)

Mystery Science Theater 3000 also released a movie in 1996. I highly recommend that movie, on top of the rest of the show. Granted I've only watched one episode along with the move, but believe me when I say I want to watch more.

I am presenting this to you all, because we all can use an escape every once in a while. Your day will instantly improve, I guarantee it.

Who knew bad movies could be so fun to watch?
