Anyone else remember the grand classic of comedy known as Mystery Science Theater 3000? I became an instant, die-hard fan after one episode of rolling on the floor, cracking up, though I have to admit the side-splitting laughter effect is much stronger on me than others with whom I have shared this gem of a show.
