Comedy

Watch Evilra, Mistress of the Dark as she presents the horror, the thrills, and the chills of the most terrible movies ever made!
Max Headroom (1987-1988)
Based on the movie of the same name. Worse than the movie in every way.
You probably only know about this because of that one time a bunch of kids took over a news station with max headrooms head. Dont watch it just because of that. In fact, dont watch it for any reason. Why is this listed?
MST3K (1988-Present)
In the not-too-distant future -- Next Sunday, AD, There was a guy named Joel, not too different than you or me. He worked in a satellite loading bay, just polishing switches to pay his way; He did his job well with a cheerful face, But his bosses didn't like him so they shot him into space!
"We'll send him cheesy movies, the worst ever made." Joel says when you got lemons, you make lemonade. Now keep in mind he can't control when the movies begin or end, because he used the extra parts to make his robot friends.
If you're wondering how he eats and breathes, and other science facts: Just repeat to yourself "It's just a show, I should really just relax For Mystery Science Theater 3000."

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur, or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly, and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits. Please stand by.

However, unlike Reddit and Memey, they do not think themselves the greatest thing since God himself.
