Make sure you know what you're getting

For a long time, the Best Brains' resisted releasing Season One episodes, feeling that they had not yet perfected their art -- or, as they put it in the Amazing Colossal Episode Guide, 'they're not very good and we don't want them seen.' According to producer Jim Mallon, Season One is remembered as 'the awful time.'

But finally they relented, and gave us Show 106, 'The Crawling Hand.' And you know what? It's not great. The MSTie interested in the complete and utter history of the show will value this glimpse of the semi-legendary Dr Erhardt, Tom Servo's old voice, and the early versions of the set and opening credits. But if you're less familiar with the show, I would recommend starting someplace else, because it got a LOT better than this, and I wouldn't want you to be scared away by one early performance.

MST featured many villainous body parts and horrors-from-space in the early years. Come to think of it, they had a lot of horrors-from-space in the later years too. Cult TV aficionados will enjoy the sight of Alan Hale, Jr hamming it up in a horror flick

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