Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3k) is the brainchild of standup comedian Joel Hodgson. The premise is that some mad scientists have stranded one of their employees, Joel Robinson, on the orbiting "Satellite of Love" in order to do experiments on him. Their experiments? They subject Joel and his robot pals, Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo, to really bad movies in order to study their reactions. The crew of the SOL responds by making fun of the movies in order to stave off insanity. Joel eventually escaped back to Earth and he was replaced by a temp worker named Mike Nelson.
The show first aired on independent Minneapolis UHF station KTMA-TV 23 then on The Comedy Channel which became Comedy Central and finally on the Sci-Fi Channel.
