Good early-years MST

Not to be confused (unfortunately) with the 1957 Ronald Reagan-Nancy Davis movie 'Hellcats of the Navy,' this episode reunites many of the actors who brought us another Season Two MST epic, 'Sidehackers,' which is also on Rhino video. Like 'Sidehackers,' 'Hellcats' is an unpleasant film about drugs, murder, biker gangs, and the basically good kids who get caught up in all that stuff.

The riffing on this film is pretty good, and captures the playfulness and exuberance that especially characterized the early seasons. The host segments are a little lame, in that they're largely flashbacks to other episodes (this episode came about three-fourths of the way through the second season, so there's not even that much to flash back *to* yet). On the other hand, none of the episodes in which these segments originally appeared have been released on video (yet?), so from that standpoint I suppose it's nice to see them here. But they're not as topical as they often are in other episodes.

Still, I love MST's early years even more than I love the later years, and encourage all fans to stock up on Season Two episodes whenever possible.

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