After years of waiting, Mystery Science Theatre 3000 is finally on Netflix, but it’s not alone. In the not-too-distant future, from the deep dark reaches of the Upside Down… comes a riff too powerful to ignore. That’s right, MST3K has taken on Stranger Things.
Netflix released a short clip of Jonah Ray and the robots poking fun at the opening scene from the first episode of Stranger Things (luckily, the show’s Twitter account seemed to take it in stride). The riff is short but sweet, full of fun references to the ’80s and a ton of male body shaming. Let’s just say the trio spends a lot of time focusing on how much they want Sheriff Hopper to put some damn clothes on.
Luckily, there’s room on Netflix for both amazing shows… even if there isn’t enough time in my weekend to binge both of them. MST3K is currently available on Netflix, and Stranger Things comes back for season two this Halloween.
