They were four total strangers, with nothing in common, except themselves.
A space drama, a sword and sandals epic, a 50s spy film and a TV pilot about an airport. Before the experiment was over, they broke the rules and made us cringe in ways we never dreamed possible. In this 32nd collection of episodes from the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, Joel, Mike, Tom Servo and Crow spend detention aboard the Satellite of Love with a breakfast club of cheesy movies. To our everlasting good fortune, though, they endure the punishment by delivering a steady stream of wisecracks, and it's definitely some kind of wonderful.
Dear Dr. Forrester, you see these movies as you want to see them, in simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what our space captives found out is that each one of them has bad acting, a sloppy script, questionable direction and some music. We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice eight hours of our time for whatever it was we did wrong. Thank you — we had a blast.
