MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” which is perhaps the most popular Minnesota-produced television show ever, is making a comeback.

The reboot hits Netflix Friday with a host of new episodes thanks to die-hard fans — aka MSTies — who pledged nearly $6 million in a Kickstarter campaign.

NewsRadio 830 WCCO’s Laura Oakes had a nerdy, yet fun conversation Friday with a couple of local MST3K fans from the WCCO-TV web team: Eric Henderson and Steve Swanson.

One tip from Steve: Watch some original MST3K episodes on Netflix first. His recommendations:

  • “Manos: The Hands of Fate”
  • “Merlin’s Shop Of Mystical Wonders”
  • “Pod People”
  • “Space Mutiny”
  • “Werewolf”
