It should be noted that none of these episodes were "written" per se, as Joel Hodgson, Josh Weinstein (playing Tom Servo), and Trace Beaulieu (playing Crow T. Robot) would sit in front of a screen and watch bad movies for perhaps the first time in their lives. The show had to be finished by about 5:00pm so the local wrestling review show could be taped. (All this information can be found in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Episode Guide.)
