Mystery Science Theater 3000

I'm one of those people who enjoy a good bad movie. The truly terrible "Plan 9 from Outer Space" by Ed Wood set the standard, but unfortunately, there's plenty of truly awful trash to be found (the IMDb Bottom 100 is a good starting point).
But I could never be as funny as the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000 (or MST3K for short). Started in the eighties on a local TV channel in the US and later brought to Comedy Central, this TV show is based on the premise that a human being and some robots are trapped on a ship and forced to watch truly bad movies such as "The Touch of Satan" or "Godzilla vs. Megalon" as a form or torture. To endure the torment, the spectators continuously comment on anything that happens on the screen. Searching for MST3K on YouTube gives a number of good results.
Some of you may be shocked that I never heard of this show before, but honestly, it was never aired in my home country.
