On the premiere episode of Afterbuzz TV’s “Mystery Science Theater 3000” aftershow, hosts Christian Bladt and Andrew Mena discuss their excitement about the return of the show after a long, grueling 18 year absence. They discuss their own personal histories with the original version of the show, including Christian explaining that he’s been a fan of the show since before a number of Afterbuzz TV hosts were born, and to prove it, he brought in his MST3K Info Club welcome kit with a postmark from 1991, stamped with his member number 7194, and showed off his membership card and some handsome cast photos that were included. Christian and Andrew then dive in to their analysis of the first episode of the new version of the show, Netflix’s “Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return”, which was the end result of a highly successful Kickstarter campaign. They share their excitement about the new cast which includes Jonah Ray, Patton Oswalt and Felicia Day, and the Danish monster movie “Reptillicus”.
