Here’s a Russian show that bears a striking resemblance to an American show beloved by all Nerdists:
It’s Mystery Science Theater 3000 in what appears to be a less-than-authorized Russian version. This thing has been around for a year or so online, but I only noticed it because someone today tipped off Kevin Murphy, Tom Servo himself, that it exists, and he tweeted the news.
The Google Translation version of the show information from Google Video:
