The production has been critically acclaimed by many major media outlets. The New York Times has praised the show as “…a revival of something actually worth reviving… a different cast but the same outlook and style — and mercifully, the same reliable, giddy humor.” According to the Vanity Fair, “MST3K is just as hilarious as ever in rebooted form, turning its bemused eye on old, schlocky fare for some good, old-fashioned riffing.” MST3K is widely regarded as one of the top cult TV shows of all time.
