Tom Lehrer is Smug

push the button, frank

The last episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 to ever air on "regular" television was shown today. This ends 14 years of a show that had been on four different channels and granted at least one big reprieve. Sure, there hadn't been any new episodes for years, but this was the last day reruns were scheduled on the Sci-Fi Channel. So it goes, but the spirit lives on in VHS and DVD and the Digital Archive Project.

Keep circulating the tapes.
