Felicia Day is starring as Kinga Forrester(the daughter of the evil Dr. Clayton Forrester) on the new Mystery Science Theater 3000, which premieres with 14 new episodes on Netflix this Friday (4/14/17). We talked (of course) about our love for the original series, how the series is faithful to the old while introducing new elements, and what it’s like to have Patton Oswalt as her loyal henchman.Follow @bigwakeupcall

I was a seriously dedicated fan of the wonderful (and criminally and unjustly cancelled) Mystery Science Theater 3000 back in the day, and it’s great that Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett are still doing what they do in the form of RiffTrax. We talked about their latest live event, invading a film festival, and the implications of “Sharknado” becoming a “genre.”
A live RiffTrax performance featuring “The Room” is coming to a theatre near you — visit fathomevents.com.
MIke Nelson and Kevin Murphy are best known for being part of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
