* Gypsy being rigged from the ceiling not only improves her mobility, giving her more to do not only in the host segments, but in the theater, but was facilitated by having to build the SOL set to Jonah's impressive height. Jonah's 6'5" frame means that without her there is a ''lot'' of empty space at the top of the screen.

Added DiffLines:

** It's mentioned in one episode that Pearl forwards Mike's mail, which means he probably ''can'' hear from his family (including a grandmother he's apparently fond of). This is also how we learn that one of his relatives has married an ape, kicking off the [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds Apocalypse]] that leads to the future destruction of humankind.

* In ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S09E07Hobgoblins Hobgoblins]]'' there are a lot of riffs that the hero's name is Kevin. Then you realize writer and Tom Servo's actor is ''Kevin'' Murphy and that he's probably heard all of these jokes at some point.
** Also applicable to early portions of ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S05E19Outlaw Outlaw]]'' when the protagonist's name (Cabot) is initially misheard as Kevin.
*** Cabot?!

Kevin.



* Why Servo sees everything as red- it's not a red-green deficiency, he's got infrared vision! That's how he sees without any apparent eyes. He has an infrared sensor somewhere on his body.
** Except that's not how infrared vision works...



** While that episode does not show the ultimate fate of Cambot, remember that you can see inside Mike's home as he and the bots get ready to watch a movie. ''Cambot is the one filming that sequence!''
** That episode also has Mike, Gypsy, Crow, and Servo saying that they love each other they think they're going to die. However, Servo [[SnubByOmission doesn't say that he loves Crow]]. Except he did. [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S08E20SpaceMutiny Just not in that episode]]. And, in that episode, Crow said that he was only "sorta fond of" Servo.

* I finally figured out why one of the doors to and from the theater appears to have a toilet seat on it. [[spoiler: It's door [[ToiletHumor number two]].]]

to:

* From a [[WatsonianVersusDoylist Doylist]] perspective, having Season 11 end with [[spoiler:Jonah being EatenAlive by a giant snake]] makes sense. If the Best Brains can secure the funding and rights to a twelfth season, then it'll be easy enough to write him out of that pickle while invoking the MST3KMantra (there have been far more blatant examples of DeusExMachina in the old series that did the same thing). If they can't secure the funding, then [[spoiler:Jonah stays dead and his arc on the SOL his complete, albeit with an extremely hard gut-punch of an ending]].

** In the Season 11 theme the lines "If you're wondering how he eats and breaths/and other science facts..." play over the new theater hallway sequence which features actual ''rooms'' in the SOL including a kitchen, sleeping quarters, a laundry room, some kind of science lab, and a garage. In other words ''this'' is how he eats and breathes. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

to:

* The new "Return" episodes on Netflix still have commercial bump segments (and more elaborate ones than the original run of the show had) because Kinga is still laboring under a delusion that the show is airing on "regular" TV (despite Max's efforts to explain that it's on Netflix), and so she forces Max and the Skeleton Crew to make them.

* People, at one point, ''paid'' to watch some of these movies. Without riffing. That, presumably, also applies in-universe, so who knows how many people paid to be unexpectedly subjected to films that almost drove Mike/Joel and the Bots insane.

* For the 2017 reboot, the opening sequence is actually a simulation of Jonah's capture and being sent to the SOL. Which means at the beginning of each episode Jonah is forced to re-enact his own capture every single week. Sheesh, even Dr. Forrester and Pearl were never that cruel to Joel and Mike!

* Why does the SOL have it's odd shape? Because anyone on it is [[VisualPun boned]].

to:

* In TheMovie, the ship's robot arms are activated by a button marked [[Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate "Manos"]], which makes sense for 2 reasons: one, "manos" is Spanish for "hands"; two, it ensures nobody would press it accidentally, since the SOL crew ''hated'' that movie with a burning passion. (It was arguably [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S04E24ManosTheHandsOfFate the show's most iconic episode]], after all)
