Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot) are headed back to the small screen. The Mystery Science Theater 3000 team has made a deal to bring a three episode mini-series based on their current endeavor, RiffTrax, to The National Geographic Channel.
RiffTrax are hilarious commentaries that are designed to play along with DVD's or merged with movies and classic shorts. You can stream the content online and DVDs are also available. The commentaries are in the same vein as the original show.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 ran from 1988 to 1999 and featured the trio watching bad movies while taking shots at the films. The show retired from TV after it was canceled by Syfy in 1999.
RiffTrax will air on National Geographic starting April 1, 2014.
