Zusammenfassung:
"Mystery Science Theater 3000 featured a human host and a pair of robotic puppets who provided commentary on some of the worst films ever made. This is the first full-length scholarly analysis of Mystery Science Theater 3000 which blossomed from humble beginnings on Minnesota public-access television into a cultural phenomenon on major cable networks"--Provided by publisher.
