Hello, magical pals!🔮
It’s a new month, and that means the Gizmoplex is all decked out with a new vibe! The theme for June is SUPERNATURAL SUMMER, so let’s get started.
UPCOMING LIVESTREAM EVENTS FOR JUNE
This month is indeed a spellbinding one, as June features TWO BRAND-NEW PREMIERE EPISODES.
First, on June 10, enter the uncanny world of DOCTOR MORDRID – who is definitely not a bargain bin knockoff of Dr Strange – as he wages an interdimensional battle against evil to protect the future of Earth.
Then, on June 24, join DEMON SQUAD's paranormal investigator Nick Moon as he searches for a powerful ancient artifact and… also does battle with otherworldly forces for the fate of the planet.
As always, we invite you to stick around after each episode for a special LIVE post-show discussion featuring our cast, writers, and some very special guests! (More details on that soon.)
This month’s Vault Picks are now available to bewitch you with a good time. Each Vault Pick includes all-new introductions and outros, plus a few more hidden surprises you won’t need a crystal ball to find.
Then, stick around after the premiere for a LIVE post-Munchie Support Group, featuring a panel of this episode's cast and writers: Jonah Ray, Hampton Yount, Deanna Rooney, and Rebecca Hanson. It will be a memorable time, we promise.
How to Watch Livestreams & New Episodeswithout paying for them again
For backers using the Gizmoplex.com website or apps, we know that some of you continue to see BUY buttons and prices listed on the livestreams and new episodes, even though your Gizmoplex Member Pass allows you to see everything for free.
(We would change this if we could, but unfortunately it's a built-in limitation of the Vimeo OTT platform, which wasn't designed to support Kickstarter rewards.)
Here's the important part:
If you have an active Gizmoplex Member Pass, please don't pay again to see any of the livestreams or new episodes and shorts.
Even if it looks like you're being asked to pay, there's an easy solution: you'll always find everything included with your Gizmoplex Membership in your Gizmoplex Pass.
If you need help finding all of the content in your Gizmoplex Member Pass, just choose the platform you'd like to use and follow the instructions (note: some of these links are currently incomplete, but they will be finished by the end of the day):
If you've got a Gizmoplex Member Pass, you also have access to our GIZMOPLEX VAULT PICKS: a rotating monthly selection of six classic episodes sharing a theme, and enhanced with brand-new bonus Gizmoplex host segments.
Also, for those of you who have been waiting, we're pleased to confirm that all six selects now include CLOSED CAPTIONS. Moving forward, captions will be available on all Vault Picks selections as soon as they are released.
As a reminder, May is PESKY CRITTERS MONTH, so you've got until the end of the month to check out our featured Vault Pick editions of…
But remember, we change the Vault Picks at the beginning of each month, so you've got just one week left to watch this month's Vault Picks before they disappear, and the June Vault Picks take their place in your Gizmoplex Member Pass.
Be sure to watch them this week, and remember to check back on June 1st to discover next month's featured selections!
Update on Kickstarter Rewards
We know that some of you are wondering about the status of all of your physical Kickstarter rewards, like t-shirts and hoodies, 3D glasses, challenge coins, overstock rewards, etc.
Here's the quick update:
COVID-related challenges continue to slow down supply lines, and a few of our rewards have continued to fall further behind schedule.
As of now, our goal is to finalize shipping costs and timing in June, collect shipping charges for your rewards in July, and start shipping rewards in August.
We realize these delays are both disappointing and frustrating to some of you (or maybe that's just us). We appreciate your patience and understanding.
That’s all for now! Thanks for reading, friends, and we hope to #SeeYouInTheGizmoplex this Friday night, for the long-anticipated torment of Munchie.
GIZMOPLEX LAUNCH WEEK continues with THREE NIGHTS of special livestream TRIBUTE SHOWS devoted to classic episodes!
over 1 year ago
– Fri, May 13, 2022 at 11:32:46 AM
Starting tonight, join us for our Gizmoplex Tribute Week, featuring three special events devoted to classic episodes.
TONIGHT – that’s WEDNESDAY, MAY 11 – at 8pm ET / 5pm PT, we will be replayingour first tribute show, which is dedicated to Manos: The Hands of Fate, and also features the public premiere of a BRAND NEW SHORT “Pipeline to the Clouds,” new bonus host segments, and a fascinating post-show discussion with Jackey Neyman Jones, who played Debbie in the film.
TOMORROW – that's THURSDAY, MAY 12 – at 8pm ET / 5pm PT,we’ll be paying homage to Future War, also with the premiere of a brand new short, new bonus host segments, and a live post-show discussion with Jonah Ray, Emily Marsh, Kelsey Ann Brady, and Conor McGiffin.
And on FRIDAY THE 13TH at 8pm ET / 5pm PT, join us for a special Pesky Critters Month livestream special event, as we revisit beloved fan favorite Hobgoblins, along with a brand new short and new bonus host segments, plus a post-show discussion including Mary Jo Pehl and Ken Hall, the creature creator behind those darn hobgoblins.
You can post your questions for the live events here on the forums, and we may ask your question during the show! (Please note that the Manos event is a replay so we won’t be taking any new questions tonight.)
And remember: if you have an active GIZMOPLEX MEMBER PASS, but you can’t make any of these events, they’ll become available to replay in your personal collection just a few hours after the show is complete.
Just want new episodes, not livestreams? We’ve got you!
If you are looking to watch the new season 13 episode screeners without all the live event extras, you can find those in your GIZMOPLEX MEMBER PASS (assuming you have one).
Moving forward, new episodes and shorts will appear in your Gizmoplex Pass at 12:01am ET on the day each one premieres.
Credits where credits are due
As many of you have noticed, the final cuts of each episode now includes CREDITS – including a list of special thanks to backers! These backer credits are being evenly spaced out across all 13 episodes, so if you haven’t seen your name yet, don’t worry. We’re working on a way to let you know which episode your name will be on – more on that soon.
That's all for now! We hope to #SeeYouInTheGizmoplex this week.

SEE the Gizmoplex LAUNCH WEEK Schedule, and find out..
WHEN you'll get new episodes and shorts
HOW you'll get access to them (streaming vs. downloading)
WHERE you'll find them in the Gizmoplex
PLUS... Gizmoplex Theme Months kick off with... PESKY CRITTERS!
AND... Watch EVERY available classic episode for free, starting tomorrow!
Dear Gizmoplex Founding Supporters:
This is it! It’s happening! It’s LAUNCH WEEK!
Tomorrow,FRIDAY, MAY 6, marks the GRAND OPENING of the Gizmoplex, and the SEASON PREMIERE for Season 13!
In a nice full circle moment, we realized this morning that tomorrow is almost exactly 13 months from the end of our Kickstarter last spring: 13 months, 13 episodes, 13 shorts, Season 13. (It has to be good luck, right?)
Anyway, even though you've been here with us through the soft launch, we can't wait for you to see the FINISHED EPISODES, or to be able to share them with your non-backer friends. We're also excited to confirm that we'll have brand-new LIVE AFTERSHOWS following each of this weekend's episode premieres, with a few special guests in the mix.
Now… here are the details you'll need.
This weekend, join us for the world premieres of the first three all-new episodes:
And next week, to keep things exciting, we'll have three consecutive nights of special TRIBUTE EVENTS:
We'll share more details at the beginning of next week, but remember that our "special events" each night include the premiere of a BRAND NEW SHORT RIFFand new bonus host segments!
Since we know that live events at 8pm ET aren't accessible for everyone, we've got a new plan that should make it easier – and more convenient – to accommodate different schedules.
Starting tomorrow, here's how we'll release NEW EPISODES & SHORTS:
The EPISODE SCREENER will be released at 12:01am ETon the day of the event. Screeners will include closed captions, but no additional content (e.g. sponsor ads, intermission, etc).
The LIVESTREAM PREMIERE will begin at 8:00pm ET, for those who want to watch live with the community. The livestream version will include additional content, like an intermission and sponsor segments, but will not have closed captions.
The LIVE AFTERSHOW will begin around 9:30pm ET, or as soon as the episode is done. Can't make it to the premiere when it starts? Watch the episode earlier in the day, and you'll be able to join the livestream late and catch the live discussion afterward!
STREAMING vs. DOWNLOADING
For backers whose rewards include the SEASON 13 DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, we've been working hard to figure out how quickly we can make the DRM-free downloads available.
While we're open to feedback, here's the current plan:
EPISODE SCREENERS will be available to STREAM at 12:01am ET on the date of their premiere, and can be downloaded for viewing in the iOS and Android apps.
EPISODE SCREENERS will be available to DOWNLOAD at 12:01am ET two weeks after their premieres, DRM-free, for easier offline viewing and backup.
WHERE TO FIND EVERYTHING
If you've redeemed your Gizmoplex Member Pass from the Kickstarter, you might recall that our original plan was to organize your pass into two "collections":
An EVENT PASS for all of your livestream events and tickets
A VAULT PICKS PASS to see each month's collection of featured classic episodes
We thought this would help make things simpler. It didn't, so – with apologies for any short-term confusion – we're switching how this works.
Starting today, both of your passes will be merged into a single product, which will be called your Gizmoplex MEMBER PASS. (Don't worry: You don't need to do anything. The MEMBER PASS will automatically replace your EVENT PASS in your Gizmoplex collection.
Your GIZMOPLEX MEMBER PASS is where you'll find all of the content included with your membership, including:
EPISODE SCREENERS (standalone episodes and shorts)
LIVESTREAM TICKETS (to view live events)
EVENT REPLAYS (to rewatch live events)
VAULT PICKS (each month's featured classic episodes)
To access everything in your Gizmoplex MEMBER PASS, choose the relevant pass from this list:
Starting this month, we'll be curating a different THEME for each month in the Gizmoplex, which will connect our EPISODE PREMIERES, SPECIAL EVENTS and VAULT PICKS.
Intrepid Gizmoplex users may have already discovered that this month’s Vault Picks have been released, revealing that the Gizmoplex theme for May is...
To celebrate PESKY CRITTERS month, the Gizmoplex is hosting a special event (A Tribute to HOBGOBLINS, on Friday, May 13th) and premiering a new episode with one of the peskiest creatures yet (MUNCHIE, on Friday, May 27th).
Plus, this month's official Vault Pick selections feature some of the peskiest critters and creatures Mystery Science Theater has ever seen:
Beginning of the End
(Finally, even if you've seen these episodes before, you might want to check out the new Vault Picks versions. You'll find some new bonus content in each of them, including new introductions and a few "hidden" extras, so be sure to check them out soon... because they'll only be around until May ends!)
Finally, a reminder:
Starting tomorrow, the Gizmoplex will let you stream every available classic episode of MST3K on demand, for free, and without ads!
That's over 150 episodes and shorts from Seasons 1-10, to watch whenever you want... and even better, the full classic library is available on demand to EVERYONE, even if you don't have a paid Gizmoplex MEMBER PASS or want to see the new episodes. Just register for a free Gizmoplex account to start watching!
That’s all for now, but before tomorrow's festivities begin, we want to say this one more time:
From all of us here at Alternaversal and Mystery Science Theater 3000: we can't thank you enough for your trust, support, and patience as we throw open the virtual doors of the Gizmoplex and enter this brand new frontier for the future of MST3K.
Your willingness to take this journey with us is seen and appreciated.
Now start preparing your snacks for tomorrow night, and we'll #SeeYouInTheGizmoplex!
FRIDAY at 8pm ET / 5pm PT in the Gizmoplex: Our FINAL LIVE BACKER PRE-SCREENING is EPISODE 1303: Beyond Atlantis!
over 1 year ago
– Thu, Apr 28, 2022 at 12:56:59 AM
Our Gizmoplex "soft launch" comes to a spectacular close this Friday night, with a special members-only pre-screening of the next brand-new episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 – featuring the debut of the newest host to land on the bridge of an SOL!
This Friday, April 29, at 8pm ET / 5pm PT, we’ll be diving for cheesy movie pearls as we screen a rough cut of Episode 1303, Beyond Atlantis, exclusively for backers!
And remember: on May 6 we’ll be kicking off the public launch of the Gizmoplex with three days of premiere events, featuring all new special guests gathering LIVE after the show. Clear your weekend, because you won’t want to miss this.
(Haven’t redeemed your Gizmoplex Pass yet? We've launched a new site that makes it even easier to redeem your Gizmoplex access: just follow these instructions.)
And wait, before you dive into this week's preview screening, one more thing:
You’ve got until MAY 2 - that's less than a week – to share your feedback and shape the future of MST3K, as well as be entered to win the ULTIMATE MST3K DIGITAL COLLECTION!
(Been having trouble getting the survey to work? We're told that backers who got stuck on the start screen have had better luck when switching to another web browser or filling out the survey using "incognito mode". Give it a shot!)
That’s all for now! We sure hope you’ll join us on Friday night to close out our soft launch.
