Ohayo, my outstanding outgoing mail packages! Apologies for being late; all I can do is promise that it's another extra-long instalment, thanks to the abundance of great letters you guys keep sending me.

We live in a world desperate to remake, reboot, and flat-out return to beloved franchises, hunting the closest thing to a sure audience there is.

Here, Day relates her serious bad movie cred and explains the perfect way she joined MST3K's anticipated return.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 is almost back! (Oh man, saying that still gives me shivers.) It's been a long time coming, but the reboot is finally set to debut on Netflix on April 14. And while the first season's already in the can, we've got a few suggestions for what Jonah Ray, Tom Servo, and Crow T. Robot should riff next.
