I had a stroke of good luck recently when I stumbled upon Mystery Science Theater 3000 in Hong Kong, of all places. It’s an American TV series that takes the mickey out of b-grade films. Wikipedia probably says it best: ‘The series features a man and his robot sidekicks who are trapped on a space station by an evil scientist and forced to watch a selection of bad movies, often (but not limited to) science fiction B-movies’. My newfound friend, who introduced me to the series, has made it even more watchable by adding subtitles and shearing the flicks to a bite-sized 30 minutes each. This one’s my favourite.
