* ... bringing the total to six stars

For sustained entertainment value, it's hard to beat the MST3K shorts, and some of the series' very best are on this video. If I could give it six stars, I would.

'The Home Economics Story' and 'Why Study Industrial Arts?' are propaganda for these underappreciated subjects, while 'A Date with Your Parents' encourages young people to make time for the folks who are paying your way through life, you little ingrates. 'The Chicken of Tomorrow' is an awe-inspiring look at advances in the world of poultry science, while 'Junior Rodeo Daredevils' shows us future poultry scientists risking their necks for prizes and acclaim. 'Cheating' and 'Body Care and Grooming' discuss, well, cheating and grooming (apparently the former is bad, the latter good).

The Best Brains (the folks behind MST3K) seem to have been able to pack as much comedy into a short as they sometimes did into an entire full-length film. This video highlights some of their best work, and features new host segments by Tom Servo. If you or the MSTie you love don't have this yet, get it right away!

Mostly, I'm a moderately prolific Amazon.com reviewer who's giving Lunch a try as another venue for my reviews.
