Shout Factory has purchased Mystery Science Theater 3000 and has licensed Joel Hodgson to restart the show. Joel has launched a Kickstarter campaign to do just that.
There will be new on-screen talent. Joel won't be the host, there will be a new villain, and new actors will portray Crow and Servo. None of the RiffTrax crew (Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, Bill Corbett, who played Mike, Servo, and Crow in the later years) will be involved.
Confused? Just be thankful I didn't give you the whole story about all the cast changes and network changes over the years. I could, you know. I'm that obnoxious. But I spared you of that. I'm that nice. You're welcome.
Anyway, MST3K is coming back! Yay!
Which brings up the Question of the Day. Who should be the new host?
If you want to be a killjoy and be serious about it, go ahead. Or, you could play comedian and come up with a really clever idea that will make everyone else just laugh and laugh. Go for that.
Again, who would be your choice for the new host for the reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000?
