About “Mystery Science Theater 3000” (MST3K)
Premiering in 1988 on KTMA-TV in Minneapolis, MST3K, the long-running and original “talk back” show has earned its place in history as one of the Top 100 TV Shows of all time, according to Time, Rolling Stone, and Entertainment Weekly. Set on the Satellite of Love, the series follows a hapless host trapped by mad scientists on a satellite in space who is forced to watch some of the most outrageously cheesy movies the world has ever seen.
About Making Contact
Making Contact (1985) appears to be a send-up (or at least heavily references) every Spielberg movie ever made, including notes of E.T., Poltergeist, The Goonies, Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and just a pinch of Lincoln. Featuring animated toys in an overcrowded childhood during the eighties, complete with an evil ventriloquist dummy and heavily branded IP at almost every turn.
Alternaversal is the production company founded by Joel Hodgson after bringing the series back with a record-breaking MST3K Kickstarter campaign in 2015, raising more than $6 million. The series currently resides on Netflix with 20 feature-length episodes where it has been frequently included as one of the top trending programs. Last May, Hodgson sponsored a second Kickstarter campaign that broke the previous record, raising $6.5 million.
