Watch STRANGER THINGS Get The MST3K Treatment

Netflix celebrates the launch of the new MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 by feeding its darling to Jonah and the ‘Bots.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is back as of today! To promote it, Netflix did something kind of brilliant: they showed the first two minutes of Stranger Things to new MST3K host Jonah Ray and his robot friends Tom Servo and Crow.

And they tore it a new one.

Yeah, it’s only two minutes, but that sure feels like the old MST3K to me. I haven’t started the new series yet, but this is a perfect aperitif, and it’s got me excited and ready to dive into the series proper. All episodes are now up; I think I’ll start with Al Adamson’s completely fucked-up 1982 “kids’ film” Carnival Magic.

You guys dig in yet? Thoughts?
