MST3k (naming the seasons)

So The two seasons from the Netflix era have subtitles, What names would the other seasons have? (If season 13 doesn’t have one then I guess you could do that one too?)

Edit: What I mean by subtitles is How Season 11 was The Return, and Season 12 was The Gauntlet (dramatic hand motion)


KTMA: The Beginning (or The Origin)
Season 1: The Re-Beginning
Season 3: The Gamera-ing
Season 5: The Shift Change
Season 7: The First Farewell
Season 10: The Long Goodbye


KTMA: The Beginning
Season 1: Son of the Beginning
Season 8: Revenge of the Beginning


I went kinda artsy on these:

KTMA: The Experiment
Season 1: Bigtime
Season 2: The Dawn of Frank
Season 3: Remembrances of Tokyo - alternate: When Turtles Have Wings
Season 4: The Hands of Fate
Season 5: The Escape
Season 6: Satellite of Lovejoy - alternate: This Satellite Feels Mushy
Season 7: Mother Knows Best
Season 8: Deep Space Chase
Season 9: Castle of Pain
Season 10: The End - alternate: To Earth
Season 11: The Return
Season 12: The Gauntlet
Season 13: Reborn Again

[NOTE: many of these wouldn’t have worked if the season started broadcasting before writing was finished… so they are definitely retcons.]

I’m glad someone actually remembered that Film Crew was a thing

They’re all available on and play fairly regularly on the 24/7 MST3K channel.


I know, I’m just saying most people don’t exactly talk about it… I guess it’s just overshadowed by Rifftrax and CT… (in addition to MST3k)
