But this isn’t all, from March 15th, 20 of the original episodes will be dropped on Netflix – so you get the old and the new. What could be better?

Factory released a statement to say that the Kickstarter campaign by the Mystery Science Theater to #BringBackMST3K has set a world record by being the highest-funded crowdfunding campaign for Film and TV in history, surpassing the amount they needed to fully fund the production of 14 new episodes. It seems like they wanted to pay back their dedicated fans with the original episodes as well. And we’re not complaining.
