Comedy Central may have pulled the plug on MST3K, but now distraught fans can relive more than 120 episodes with the help of The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Amazing Colossal Episode Guide, the guide written by the show’s staff. Fortunately, the writers at MST3K can summarize a B flick just as hilariously as they can heckle it, so reading about seven seasons’ worth of movies that ”haunt your dreams and retard sleep” is actually fun. While the scattering of stamp-size pictures throughout doesn’t do justice to the show’s brilliant sight gags, the synopses of the comedy bits are gems. Reading about MST3K isn’t as fun as seeing it on TV, but it sure beats watching SNL reruns on Comedy Central.
