Mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester and his assistant, TV's Frank, have trapped a hapless soul (Joel, later Mike) in the vacuum of outer space. With their guinea pig aboard the bone-shaped Satellite of Love, they force upon him experiment after evil experiment from their underground lair. The sinister goal: find a movie so bad that it will break a man's soul, driving him to insanity. Once found, this cinematic weapon would be unleashed upon the world, turning the populace to zombies, and opening the door for Dr. Forrester's omnipotency. With the company of his robot pals Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo, the trio of deep space jesters makes the best of the situation and maintains just enough sanity through wisecracking commentary and an occasional song and dance.

I "discovered" this show on YouTube in 2011 when I learned I had the ability to riff on bad TV before I knew it was called riffing. Since then I've gotten the DVDs starting w/ Vol. XVIII (I also have Vol. 10.2.). This is truly a classic comedy; I gave it a 9, though, based on the "behind the scenes" drama, such as the cast's long turnover, the movie that truncated Season 7 & switching to (then) Sci-Fi. But overall, an awesome comedy.

These guys are the only reason I bother watching old films before my time. I get to catch up to the older folks and get to laugh while at it.
