With a revival on the way, the gang from Mystery Science Theater 3000 got together earlier this year for a side-splitting live reunion. Now the rest of us can finally get in on the joke.
The RiffTrax Live: MST3K Reunion has finally been released for download and purchase, encompassing the hilarious reunion event hosted at the State Theatre in Minneapolis back in June. The reunion features just about everybody who has ever been involved with the cult hit, as MST3K alums Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett were joined on stage by a bevy of hilarious cohorts as they take aim at several wacky short films.
Along with Mike, Kevin and Bill, Frank Conniff (TV's Frank), Trace Beaulieu (Crow, Dr. Forrestor), Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester), Bridget Nelson (Nuveena, Mr. B), the revival’s host Jonah Ray, and even MST3K creator Joel Hodgson all popped up for the 20th anniversary laugh-a-palooza.
If you were a high level Kickstarter backer of the revival season, you can have this glorious gift for free — but the rest of us will have to pony up a few bucks for the pleasure. It's certainly a good way to pass the time while we wait for the new season to hit Netflix.
