'Mystery Science Theater 3000' class coming to Texas Tech

OIA News - Texas Tech honor college students will soon have the privilege to take a course on 'Mystery Science Theater 3000'

Texas Tech honor college students will soon have the privilege to sign up for a course on "Mystery Science Theater 3000," the 1988 cult classic TV show. The original series, which has now been brought back to life on Netflix, features a man and his two robot sidekicks poking fun at terrible, low-budget movies. While most viewers and fans wouldn't think twice about the style of laid back joke cracking, the new course's professor, humanities and popular-culture librarian Rob Weiner, thinks otherwise.

It has been almost 20 years since a new episode of 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' has come out with an episode. The new episodes of the show feature Jonah Ray, Felicia Day, and Patton Oswald. The show's basic concept is that they are all trapped in space and have to watch horrible movies. The new episodes of the show are premiering on Netflix, and fans were excited to see that in one of the episodes they were forced to watch 'Stranger Things.' Fans of both shows should definitely check it out.
