The Guys From ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000′ Are Back on TV! [Audio]

I’ll be the first to admit that I can be a bit of a nerd.

One of my favorite shows is “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”

The show was about a guy and his two robots watching horribly awful B movies and making wisecracks throughout the entire film.

The show originally aired on Comedy Central through seven seasons back in the ‘90s before it was cancelled.

It was then picked up by the Sci-Fi Channel until its cancellation in 1999. In fact, it was just the 10-year anniversary of the last episode of the show ever airing in syndication on TV.

So, of course, I was totally geeked when I found out the guys from “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” or MST 3K as us fans refer to it, would be back on TV!

After “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ went off the air, Mike Nelson and his two robots, Tom Servo, played by Kevin Murphy, and Crow T. Robot, played by Bill Corbett, continued to receive requests from fans to revive the show in some form.

And so grew RiffTrax, a website where fans can download commentary to play along with their favorite movies or television shows.

National Geographic Channel has booked them for one night only.

National Geographic Channel has teamed up with RiffTrax to bring us “Total Riff Off” — three, hour-long episodes where the MST3K/RiffTrax guys add their hilarious and unconventional commentary to nature documentaries.

I was able to speak with Bill Corbett a.k.a. Crow T. Robot, who assured me the air date was purely coincidental and the special is NOT an April Fool’s Day hoax.

“Total Riff Off” premieres Tuesday, April 1, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. EST only on Nat Geo.
