THE 'BOTS ARE BACK!
We are excited to announce some very big news for MST3K fans.


Click for larger image

But first, some housekeeping: For reasons that will become apparent, we need to ask those of you who reach our site using the URL MST3K.com to update your bookmarks, and please use the URL MST3Kinfo.com. Many of you use this URL already, but if you get to us via MST3K.com, starting next week you won't be able to anymore.

The reason is that, next week, MST3K.com will become a new destination for a brand new site, created by a reconstituted, relaunched Best Brains Inc.

Or, as they put it when they contacted us about this: The 'Bots are Back!

Beginning November 5th, BBI will be launching its very own website at MST3K.com. The site will feature brand-new animated adventures of Crow, Tom Servo and Gypsy. We're told the goal is to have one new adventure each week (though "some settling may occur with shipping," they added). The Web site will also feature work from the original series (which BBI is now calling "the legacy series"), behind-the-scenes footage and other material culled from the BBI vault.

Also on the site will be BBI's first online store, featuring all new merchandise. (This means that the BBI merchandise section of our site will be taken down. )

The new adventures of the 'bots are being produced by BBI President, MST3K series writer and the returning voice of Gypsy, Jim Mallon. He will be joined on this new experiment by veteran MST3K series writer and performer Paul Chaplin (who will be on the writing team and will be providing the voice of Crow) along with new writing and performing talent.

We know this is going generate a lot of buzz among the fan base and you all probably have a zillion questions. So do we. Many will be answered on Nov. 5th. More will be answered soon after. Jim told us that the site and project "are going to grow in a very organic fashion and we're going to let the characters and the story take us in the direction they want to take us." We at Satellite News can't wait to see it.

What does this mean for Satellite News? The biggest change is that we will no longer be known as "The official MST3K Web site," and this marks the end of our 10-year arrangement with Best Brains as the official voice of the old Info Club. Jim has, however, declared us, "The Official MST3K fan site." We still have close ties to BBI and whenever they have news you'll see it here first, along with news about the rest of the former cast and crew members of our favorite cowtown puppet show. For us, this is just one more topic in the growing list of MST3K-related news it's our job to report.

We have some interesting plans for our site as well, so be sure to stay tuned!

Wow... this came outta' left field, didn't it? I mean, i'm a regular reader of The Satellite News, but i had no idea this was going on. I guess we won't have to wait too long to see how this is going to play out. I'm kind of excited~

I like the part about material culled from the BBI vault...

The only good thing that could possibly come of this is the release of the KTMA episodes.

When I hear about the "BBI vault" that's what I really want to come out of there too. But that's just dreaming.

Every day of my life I find the wisest and best to fix our attention on the Good and the Beautiful. If you just take the time to look at it.

Wow, way to prove to everyone you're not a one trick pony Jim!

At least we know Paul is still around. Though I am curious why he didn't hire Trace.... or Bill.......

I'm reluctant to get exited at the moment as I'm sure the 'behind the scenes politics' are still playing out (or they sure will be..) :-\

Yeah, Jim and Paul. That's now three online x-MST3K "cliques" that have had no intermingling at all.

If you head over to http://www.mst3kinfo.com, you'll see that Jim Mallon is resurrecting Tom, Crow, Gypsy and more, via the Interweb, starting Nov. 5 at www.mst3k.com.

I have no clue what to make of this, so I'll just paste some of the article here:

Wow.  I'm excited by the prospect, but I'm cautiously optimistic.  Very cautiously.
