The basic premise of “MST3K” is likely to stay the same as it’s been over the last 30 years, with each episode revolving around a different B movie. Episodes open with an interaction between the host and the robots and the Mods, before the Mods send the test subjects to watch the movie and give their opinions. Though the captors are in a theater watching the cringe-worthy movies for most of each episode, they take breaks to give short skits that are usually related to the featured movie. As a host, Jonah also exchanges inventions with the Mods each episode, showing off the latest gadgets they’ve made.
There’s not much else as far as plot goes — the point of the show is to both riff and appreciate the campiness of different unpopular movies. Whether they’re just a product of the times’ bad animation skills or they have completely nonsensical plots, “MST3K” has brought new audiences to dozens of films that otherwise didn’t receive much acclaim. And until we hear further news, we’ll be on the edge of our seats, preparing to enter the nightmare-fueled world of “MST3K.”
