Unless you've been living under a box of Hamdingers, you may have heard that we recently launched the Official Mystery Science Theater 3000 YouTube Channel. If you haven't already, now would be a great time to subscribe. Here's why:

Besides getting a ton of clips from your favorite episodes featuring classic sketches and hilarious riffs, there's something we're offering on the MST3KChannel that you won't get anywhere else — full-length episodes. Wait, you didn't let me finish — full-length episodes, with annotations. For free!

What are these mysterious annotations, you ask? Straight from our friends at The Annotated MST, they break down all of the witty references made throughout an episode (there are a lot of them) and tell you what in the world Crow, Tom Servo, Joel and Mike are talking about. This will give you a social advantage over your fellow MST3K-watching buddies, since you'll be able to explain the origin of every pop culture reference and seem like the smartest person in the room.

You're welcome.

Of course, you may be the type of person who doesn't want things explained to them. Or maybe you're already so smart that you get all the references without outside help, in which case we salute your know-it-all-ness. The beauty of these videos is that if you turn the annotations off, you just get yourself a full-length, high-quality, free episode of MST3K.

You're welcome again.

So far we've uploaded fan favorites Manos: The Hands Of Fate, Mitchell and our most recent addition, Soultaker. But there are many more to come, so pop some popcorn, fire up your Hexfield Viewscreen and get watching!

Oh, and don't forget to subscribe so you can be the first to know when the next full episode is up. Because the only thing better than being the smartest person in the room is being the smartest and the first.
