MST3K: The Beginning of the End

Get this MST3K Episode!

Please choose a format above.

It’s big monster action of the “mostly-it-happens-offscreen” variety! An entire town is gone! Did it run out for milk? Was it just going to the gas station for cigarettes? Nope (we checked them all) - some real shenanigans are afoot.

Spearheading the shenanigan-ings are a journalist and a hunky scientist who quickly uncover the cause of it all: superimposed stock footage of crickets! Trust us: by the end of The Beginning of the End you’ll be calling Ed Wood’s next of kin to apologize for all your sassy Glen or Glenda hot takes.

But in the meantime, join Mike, Servo and Crow as they totally bug out for The Beginning of the End!
