An MST quality assortment!

  • Mar 24, 2003
Whoever at Rhino decided to package these four MST episodes into one DVD collection did a really nice job, because they comprise an excellent cross-section of the show: one from the early years (I've said in other Amazon.com reviews that I think seasons 3 and 4 were probably the best of the show's entire run) plus some from the later Comedy Central years; bad horror films combined with a bad comedy film and one that's just, well, bad (how *would* you classify "The Skydivers"? "Drama" doesn't seem like quite the right word.). If anything, the collection may be -- as one of the institutional reviews put it -- a little "Mike-centric." But the volume two collection balances this out by including two Joel-era episodes.

The magic of DVD technology brings many other interesting benefits to this collection, including complete, uncut versions of the original films without the benefit of "Shadowrama" technology. But the real value, of course, is far more in the MST riffing than in the films themselves. So pop up the popcorn and settle in for a long weekend of great entertainment. Even this many years after the show's final season, an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 is still really hard to beat.
