Mystery Science Theater 3000, or MST3K for short, is a TV show featuring a guy and a couple of robots trapped in a satellite and being forced to watch the worst movies ever made. The fun for us is watching them make fun of the movies. As one commercial used to say, “It’s like watching really bad movies with three of your funniest friends.” Sometimes the movie wasn’t long enough for the 90-minute (plus commercials) episode, so they would add a “short” at the beginning. For more detailed information, visit my MST3K page.

I found 34 different lists of the “best” or “favorite” episodes of MST3K. Then I averaged them in Excel to create this master ranked list of all 211 episodes. See my Methodology page for the research process that was used, including links to all 34 lists that were averaged. Below is a checklist you can print to track which ones you’ve seen, followed by the ranked list.
