You guys are kind of dating yourself since MST 3000 ended in 3000. However the Best Brains people have come out with a live theatre presentation now, called Cinematic Titanic
Mystery Science Theater 3000, the series used black silhouettes of the riffers placed over the films, but in the case of Cinematic Titanic they sit on both sides of the screen rather than just on the lower right. Visual gags are frequent (such as Beaulieu's use of a cherry picker in The Oozing Skull), and there are even two or three host segments per episode, all performed in silhouette.
I grew up on Star Trek, and have every episode of the original series almost memorized. Right now, the boys and I are working our way through Next Generation episodes (I've seen all except one). Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis are good. The little I've seen of Firefly and Farscape look good. Doctor Who was fun during the Tom Baker years, but I haven't seen any of the recent ones. I haven't gotten into Lost, Heroes, Battlestar Galactica, or V ... probably because there's only so much time during any given day.
Hulu is good. We can watch when we have the time, instead of being bound by the programming schedule.
It's good to see that my boys enjoy the good stuff.

Not so much into the storyline of these movies, but the special effects are always a treat e.g. how they managed to create outer space view. NASA rules. I was borowing movies from my cousin and one of them was a science fiction-Pandorum, Have you heard about it? It is not a great movie at all, but i liked the space ship which could accomodate up 5000 people.
I did see Pandorum; I agree, it wasn't very good. But I did like the ending (spoiler alert!) when they discovered that the reason nothing was working properly anymore was because the ship had crash landed underwater. It would be cool to see how they do on their new world (which looked wonderful).
