Science TV: Variable definition science.

If you’re into that sort of thing, the movie you want is this episode of Mystery Science Theatre 3000: Variable Definition Science. 

If you’re not into that kind of thing…well, you’ll want to watch this episode anyway. 

In the show’s fifth season, Mystery Science’s cast and crew work together to solve mysteries, including how the world got to where it is. 

This episode, in which the team finds themselves in a world where they don’t understand what exactly they’re talking about, is a great example of the show trying to take on this task.

It’s also worth noting that the show has some of the best dialogue of any science-based TV series, with guest stars like Michael Stuhlbarg and Paul Scheer.

The new episode airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
