Everything about it is great, movie picks, hilarious riffs and great mads/host segments. Hope we get more soon! One could say this season is, "Pretty Nice." Expand

    Season 12 is a big improvement over season 11 (which wasn't bad, just had some problems); much better pacing of jokes, better chemistrySeason 12 is a big improvement over season 11 (which wasn't bad, just had some problems); much better pacing of jokes, better chemistry between the characters (in host segments, for example). Great songs, too. Too me, they totally worked-out the kinks of the first Netflix season. The only bummer is it's a short season, with only 6 episodes. Expand

    Another funny season. Again, the MST3K revival has gotten a higher quality of bad movies. I mean none of them are good, but there aren't anyAnother funny season. Again, the MST3K revival has gotten a higher quality of bad movies. I mean none of them are good, but there aren't any real snoozers or truly painful ones that would occasionally pop up in the original series. Unfortunately, the number of episodes has been cut in half this season.

    This season is called the Gauntlet and it practically dares you to binge watch it as the story involves Dr. Kinga Forrester forcing Jonah and the bots to watch the movies in direct succession. Although, sub-plotting isn't quite as ambitious as last season, this season does have some fun overarching story elements. I appreciate how the new show has expanded the world a bit. The robots Jonah built last season, including one with full hands that can play the piano like Rowlf the dog, are now regulars on Satellite of Love. Kinga's moon base, rather than manned by two or three people like the original show, continues to feel like it's fully operated as we get to see more of her crew, including a couple new quirky faces. If you're worried about change, be assured that the focus is still on Jonah and the bots and Max and KInga. The formula is adapted but not destroyed.

    Sets and spaceship props remain strong, giving off of sort of an adult Pee-Wee's Playhouse feel.

    I'm glad that the bots' mean-spiritedness from the last season is toned down, but the writers still don't do enough to differentiate Crow and Tom Servo's personalities. I'm also disappointed that the host segments are so short, especially since they don't need to worry about time constraints on Netflix and the segments are even briefer than the ones in the later years of the original show.
