As I’ve mentioned several times previously on my blog, I’ve been a big fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 ever since I first discovered it in the 90’s. When the season 13 crowdfunding campaign was announced, my wife and I donated so that we could see more MST3K.
Well, the bots are at it again. This time crowdfunding for a season 14 of new episodes, shorts and something called “surgically enhanced” episodes. These appear to be re-masters of older MST3K episodes that looked too grainy. This video explains a lot.
So the goal is to reach $7.4 million by November 24th. Joel and the gang have moved to a new crowdfunding platform. From what I understand, this new platform won’t be taking as much of the cut as other platforms. Yes there will be both digital and physical perks. I loved getting my season 13 perks just recently and I’m really tempted by the magnets on this round. You can donate at https://showmaker.mst3k.com/
The social media hashtags used to promote this campaign are #MakeMoreMST3K (as used in previous campaigns) and #MST3KShowmaker. This is also a special event because this is the 35th Anniversary of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
I wonder what movies they will use for season 14? What movies would you recommend? What are some of your favorite MST3K episodes? Let’s talk about it on my Discord server.
