In the Not Too Distant Future- 25 Years Ago

Twenty five years ago, Mystery Science Theater 3000 premiered on The Comedy Channel. The idea was a novel one- a guy gets stranded in space, forced to watch bad movies with his two robot friends. 

The show would run for ten years and popularize grade Z films like Manos: The Hands of Fate, infamous directors like Ed Wood and bizarre characters like Mr. B Natural.
