For the first time since Netflix’s reboot of the cult television show, I found it genuinely difficult to sit through one of the episodes. The gang’s jokes are fine so they manage to pass the time, but their subject, the 1985 crapfest “Wizards of the Lost Kingdom,” is a chore to watch. There’s very little bad-movie charm to it as it’s just plainly inept and repetitive, with unpleasant characters and a nonsensical plot that goes nowhere yet manages to be completely confusing at the same time. Thank God for the MST3K gang or else this would have been the pits.
