** The older series didn't shy away from offhanded gay and transsexual jokes, most notably in its highly popular ''Mr. B Natural'' segments, which can certainly be a bit uncomfortable for some viewers nowadays. Though the 2011 series certainly hasn't gone into PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad levels of changing up its humor, there is clear attempts in certain episodes to tone down much of its humor for modern sensibilities in regards to more controversial social topics that may come up in the films they watch.

** The older series didn't shy away from offhanded jokes at the expense of gay and transsexual jokes, people, most notably in its highly popular ''Mr. B Natural'' segments, which can certainly be a bit uncomfortable for some viewers nowadays.

** Not so much the show -it's good and succesful, so there's no vindication to be made- but {{KTMA23}}, the channel were Season 0 was shot. Unlike both ComedyCentral and SciFiChannel who tend to steer away from the show as much as possible and preffer to pretend they were never involved with it, {{KTMA23}}'s current incarnation, {{The CW23}} just ''LOVES'' the show and cast to bits. While there is some obvious self-promotion going on by reminding people that MST3K began on their channel every time they get, they've also uploaded old clips of different comedy bits -Like the fake news show ''15 Minutes''- the performers used to do there and invited several of the cast back to revive old shows and events from the KTMA era. One example is Bill Corbett reviving old character -Bob Bagadonuts- in the very same new year's eve celebration special -The Melon Drop- that Kevin had created after it hadn't been done for more than ''20 years''. [[note]] Although the Melon Drop had been revived two years before his re-appearence. [[/note]].

* CrackIsCheaper: Given the way they're released (four episodes at a time, about forty dollars a set) and how many of the older Rhino sets and single releases are out of print, trying to collect all the commercial DVD releases is a nightmare.
** A set of four is usually around $60, a single episode is about $15. Assuming all 198 episodes are released, plus the movie and the home-game episode, the entire series would cost around... sigh... [[ContrivedCoincidence $3000]].
*** At last, we know the ''real'' reason the show's name ends in '3000'!
** Notably, the episodes sold on the [=RiffTrax=] webpage are priced at a more reasonable $10 per pop.

* CrackIsCheaper: Given Though exact prices have fluctuated over the years, the simple fact of the matter is that there's no way they're released (four for a show with 200+ episodes at a time, about forty dollars a set) and how many of the older Rhino sets and single releases are out of print, trying ''not'' to collect all the commercial DVD releases is a nightmare.

*** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65Nb73C0Tco 2017 rearrangement of "Mighty Science Theater"]], Season 11's pseudo-orchestrated remake of the show's classic credits theme ''Mighty Science Theater'' is beautifully nostalgic. It's hard not to get goosebumps listening to it.

** The jazz/ska covers of songs featured on the original series are pretty damn catchy on their own.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Synthia, the clone of Pearl in the 2017 series. After an intriguing introduction that hints her CloneDegeneration is an act, she hardly ever appears outside of silently loading in the latest experiment. Part of this may be that her character wasn't originally planned for the series and was only added after someone realized Rebecca Hanson, who originally had only been cast as Gypsy, also happens to look like a younger Mary Jo Pehl.

** During the ending host segment (the parade of "troubling things") in the ''Carnival Magic'' episode, Jonah is briefly replaced on the viewscreen with a different host, one in a purple jumpsuit. Kinga is the only one who seems to notice, commenting "Please ignore that, since you didn't see anything because it doesn't exist" before the screen switches back to Jonah. The credits list him as Matt Claude Van Damme, played by Matt McGinnis, one of the writers and producers.

** Other fans wonder why they'd even ''need'' a reboot when Nelson, Murphy and Corbett are still in top form on WebOriginal/{{Rifftrax}}, albeit sans silhouettes, and thanks to the audio commentary format, have riffed blockbuster films and franchises (most notably ''Franchise/StarWars'' and ''Franchise/{{Twilight}}''.)

** The lack of explanation as to how the Bots got back to the Satellite of Love (or, for that matter, how the satellite itself survived crashing to Earth) has some fans annoyed that there isn't even a {{handwave}} of an explanation, while others simply recite the MST3KMantra in response to ''any'' questions or concerns about continuity or characterization. ([[WordOfGod Joel]] has said that there will be an explanation in season 12. If there is a season 12)



** Tom Servo in general has caused some issues in the eyes of some fans. Several fans think that his new voice is far too different from the previous two Servos, and some even have trouble telling the difference between him and the new Crow.
