Whenever the characters see the "movie sign", a blue-screen sequence shows the camera moving toward the theater through a series of doors. When the characters exit the theater, the "doors" footage is played backward to show the camera moving away from the theater. The props in the hallway (such as flames) also move in reverse.

Throughout the series, several references are made to the fact that the robots' arms don't work. Many times though, they're indicated as having completed projects requiring working arms or performing deeds where their arms are moving. See more »
You know, it's economical to not have a storyline, that way you can just film people saying stuff.

MSTK 3K was never meant to be a quality show. It's simply a cheesy skit to make fun of really, really bad movies. In a world, where everybody takes things too seriously, this show produces a much needed boost of comedy. Sitcoms tend to become the same, and humor anymore is few and far between. There is just a finite number of plot lines that a sitcom can have. And many sitcoms tend to outlast their usefullness (Friends and Fraiser). However, MST3k, the humor is always refreshing. Joel (or Mike) and the robots never run out of potshots during a movie. So many movies become untentionally funny, because they are so poorly made. The robots are very clever, when they can relate contemporary events with old movies. I'll never forget when Croww T. Robot, said when he saw a wrecked T-bird "Teddy Kennedy are you alright?"
The shorts are very clever too. They make fun of the stupid short films that you had to watch in elementary school. (Posture, grooming, what to do on a date).
The only thing that one must watch out for, is that sometimes people don't get the jokes that the robots are pitching. As long as one is up on current events, he would find this show hilarious.
I remember watching the movie when it came out to theaters in 1996. I have never been in an audience that laughed so much.
