NFT: Reminder/PSA - Return of Mystery Science Theater 3000

At 12:01AM PST, Netflix gives us what we've been pining for...a return to the Satellite of Love.

From CinemaBlend, here's what's different about our friends at Deep 13, straight from Joel Hodgson:
I think the biggest change for the new series is that we really collaborate with the movie more, in that we don't really talk over the movie. We're really careful about letting the movie deliver its dialogue. I think we were just a little sloppier before. Personally, I feel like the audience now listens faster and absorbs more so we really wanted the movie to show through and we used the negative space to collaborate with it. 50,000 of our backers, or a big percentage of them -- maybe thirty or forty thousand of them -- got a version of our first [new] episode, and a very high percentage of the response to it... I answered about 600 or so questions from them on Facebook this week, and about 10 or 20 of them were saying, 'Oh, it's faster. I'm not sure I like that.' To me though, that was a deliberate thing. Because we're trying to update the show a little bit, but also it's a function of us collaborating more with the movie and using the space that's available and not talking over the words.

There are also guest stars aplenty in this go-round, with Neil Patrick Harris, Jerry Seinfeld and Mark Hamill (among others) all reportedly making cameos.

Here are some good articles to give an introduction to the new characters and what to expect when Jonah and the Bots go live tomorrow:

Enjoy. Push the Button, Frank!

I had two roommates in college that used to hog the TV and watch this stupid shit for hours at a time. They would laugh and laugh like it was the funniest thing they've ever seen in their lives.
Very much looking forward to this

For the fact it's now available to add to "My List".
I really, really, REALLY hate the idea of guest stars
