Mystery Science Theater 3000 Comes to OETA Fridays
Deploying its trademark wit at every turn, the quirky comedy series MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 finds a new home on OETA and turns some of the worst films ever made into marathons of laughter.
Beloved for their sharp humor and campy style, the show features a motley crew on a distant space station who deliver gut-busting riffs on the cinematic missteps of yester-year.
Series creator Joel Hodgson stars as Joel Robinson, a janitor who is forced to watch Hollywood's most notorious duds with a squad of snarky, sarcastic robots.

GUNSLINGER, Friday April 10 at 9pm
