What is the mystery of Mystery Science Theater 3000? You may have asked yourself, "What the heck are these talking shadows doing in the corner of my TV screen, riffing away with plucky--and hilarious--abandon in the face of some really bad movies?" Or something similar.  The answer, my friend, is right in this here official, 100%-MST3K-sanctioned book. Or maybe you know all about the adventures of Joel, Mike, and the 'bots in the not-too distant future.  Then you can skip those pages.  Really.  We won't tell.  You still need this book.  Because it's got more cool stuff from the writers and performers of MST3K. More of what you'll find in the  Mystery Science Theater 3000 Amazing Colossal Episode Guide *       More than 120 synopses of the more than 120 episodes of the Peabody Award-winning show *       More fascinating, outrageous facts and tidbits about the making of each episode *       More photos than your average issue ofTiger Beat *       More of the most disgusting things ever seen on-screen by the MST3K writers *       More than 49 (50, to be exact) of the most obscure wisecracks *       More quizzes, worksheets, and a ten-step plan to help you gain control of your finances and your life (well, not really...) *       More about your Area and what it can do for you *       More Beverly Garland! Miles and Miles O'Keefe! *       And much, much more!… (mehr)

It's BAAAAAAAAAACK!

With a Kickstarter campaign that touched many of us in places we didn't know we could be touched, Joel Hodgson and the bots have 14 new episodes on the way. Of course that means this book will be even more incomplete, however colossal it may still be.

I did not read through every episode description, sticking to the various forewords, introductions, prefaces, introduction to the preface, etc. It was bitter and cynical and lacked coherence, but being in the shadow of imminent cancellation will do that to people. Also, it was really funny that way.

The book is a lot of fun, and, lacking an index, forces you to revisit more of the horrors that were the films aired on the Satellite of Love. What I most wish for is that this group of writers will get together again, no matter what obstacles there may be. The new cast and writers of MST3K will likely do a fine job, but I'm gonna miss Mike and Pearl and Trace and Kevin and the rest of the gang. ( )

Flipping through this episode guide makes me MySTy-eyed with nostalgia. Gotta say, I enjoyed TV in the 90's: Bill Nye, The Tick, Hercules & Xena, a bunch of great PBS shows, and of course Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K). A lot of relaxing and sometimes silly stuff.

Anyway.

Just in case you aren't familiar with the show, MST3K has a poor guy stranded on a space station with his robot friends. Together, they make snarky observations while watching bad old movies and film shorts. And these are very, very…very wretchedly bad movies. "Eegah" and "Killer Shrews" somehow revoltingly come to mind when I say this. Still, the MST3K crew somehow manages to polish these uh, coprolites via merciless riffing. And it's all grist for the crew: awful miscasting, miserable dialogue, poor camera work, dismal film editing, and woeful special effects.

This book was written a while back, so it only covers seasons 1-6 and just touches on the movie. So we miss the Sci-Fi era, but you take what you can get, and here we are (sorry, "Prince of Space"). What you do get is a description of each MST3K show including a synopsis, skit summary including the stinger, and extra observations that generally lament the horror of the movies being riffed on. Sprinkled throughout the pages are tidbits such as a list of particularly disgusting movie moments and poor dialogue quotes. Oh yeah, and there's tributes to Miles O' Keefe (haha) and Beverly Garland. Finally, there's some MST3K history and some silly bios thrown in. The entries are all penned by the show writers and cast.

So what's missing? Primarily, Joel Hodgson. The entries are great, but it would have also been fun have his take on some of these shows included here. It would also be nice to have a table of contents to make it easier to find episodes. But then again, this book targets "MSTies," who'll generally be able to match episodes up with seasons. I don't think any other audience would know what the heck this book is about, anyway.

It's a really enjoyable book for an awesome show, and if by some crazy chance an updated version is published, I'll grab that, too.

Get this book an index or table of contents! It's very annoying to have to flip through every page in order to find a specific episode, thus rendering this guide sort of... un-guide-like. ( )

The only reason I'm docking my rating half a star is because the book has no index. ( )

Being an episode guide to the wonderful TV series. It's better at being funny than being a usable source of information. ( )
