In a Not Too Distant Future
We’re in deep love with the Satellite of Love, or SOL for short.
Deeper still is our appreciation for the cult classic that kept the satellite in orbit, Mystery Science Theatre 3000. The show features a human passenger stranded in space with his plucky robot sidekicks, Tom Servo, Gypsie, and Crow T. Robot (who is sometimes referred to as “Art” by one of the show’s antagonists, Pearl Forrester).

Through the comedic genius of MST3k’s creator, Joel Hodgson, new life was given to so many b(ad) movies that the world completely forgot. More than 15 years after the show’s cancellation, we present an eclectic collection of posters plucked from some of our most cherished episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Not surprising, the posters are often more compelling than the films they advertise.
