One of my all-time favorite TV shows might just get a new life, thanks to Kickstarter. Mystery Science Theater 3000 was a fantastic comedy show, with the human Joel (and later Mike) and his robot companions Tom Servo and Crow watching really bad movies and making really great jokes about them. The show started out on a UHF channel in Minneapolis in 1988, and eventually made its way to cable for nearly 200 episodes, wrapping up in 1999. Now they’re ready for a 21st century grassroots renaissance, and you can be a part of it via Kickstarter.

Please give generously. We could all use the laughs.
