Mindy, Amy and (on DVD) Laura Petrie: TV's Funny Girls

Chris Messina, Mindy Kaling

Having recently been renewed for a third season, disproving TV's usual out-of-sight/out-of-mind policy, Fox's The Mindy Project emerges from a three-month hiatus with back-to-back episodes (Tuesday, 9/8c) demonstrating Mindy Kaling's devotion to screwball comedy. A concept which Amy Schumer would probably find a way to make sound really, hilariously dirty. (Her uproarious Comedy Central sketch-com Inside Amy Schumer returns at 10:30/9:30c, making this an especially happy April Fools Day.)

Mystery Science Theater 3000 courtesy Best Brains, Inc.

Earlier this week we reported that Universal Studios is going to re-release Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie on DVD this coming May 6th. Now we've got brand new DVD news for you, but concerning the DVD rights for episodes of the TV series.This morning Big Brains, Inc. (the folks behind MST3K) announced that they were moving the DVD license for the television episodes to Shout! Factory. The show has previously been distributed on home video by Rhino, but the folks there have moved their focus away from TV-DVDs and more onto music in the years since founder Garson and Richard Foos sold the company to Time Warner. Time Warner placed Rhino with the Warner Music Group, which has since spun off into their own organization. Meanwhile, the Foos brothers left Rhino and started Shout! Factory several years ago, and over the years several of the people who worked for them at Rhino moved over to Shout!Now Mystery Science Theater 3000 makes the same journey. Rhino's final MST3K release wi... read more

New DVD Release for MST3K: The Movie...at last!

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie courtesy Universal Studios

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie delivers laughs that are out of this world! A demented scientist, Dr. Clayton Forrester, has concocted a diabolical scheme for world domination. He's going to subject the human race to the worst movies ever made! But his test subject, Michael J. Nelson, possesses mankind's ultimate defense: a sense of humor. So as the classic sci-fi "B" movie This Island Earth unspools, Mike and his robot companions, Tom Servo and Crow, heckle the film mercilessly, providing a hilarious running commentary!!!That's the description from Image Entertainment's old, long-out-of-print DVD release of the 1995 film Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie. The bare-bones, non-anamorphic disc (which I have in my own collection, having bought it for my wife when it was still "new", and catching it on sale for only $10!) was originally licensed to Image for DVD release ten years ago, and has long been out of print since Universal Studios decided to begin releasing their o... read more

Premise: A human and two robots poke fun at egregiously cheesy sci-fi movies in this cult comedy series, which began on a Minneapolis UHF station in 1988 and moved to cable a year later. The film was projected across the screen as the three acerbic critics, silhouetted across the bottom, wisecracked their way through the feature.
