This Oral History of Mystery Science Theater is great. I was introduced to MST3K in college by my friend Dan Langevin.
The stand out quote from the whole piece for me was this:
What the hell do you want with a story arc? This is a puppet show.
Blankbaby is known to his friends as Scott McNulty (though he is @blankbaby on Twitter). He writes this blog, used to co-host (with Marisa) Fork You, infrequently contributes to Macworld, and authors tech books.
Everything on this blog is Scott's opinion, and his opinion alone. It in no way reflects the opinions of his employers, friends, concerned passers-by, or anyone else for that matter. But you're smart, you knew that already.
