I have so much love for Mystery Science Theater. I started watching it when I was probably 10, and a horrible insomniac. I would watch it until I couldn’t stay awake anymore. I kind of missed the memo when the sets started coming out on DVD. So for people like me, other fans or newcomers to the show…this one is for you. The set is selling on Amazon right now for $63.98, and is commemorating the show’s 20th anniversary. Here are the goods -
Mystery Science Theater 3000 celebrates its 20th anniversary with a specially packaged DVD set housed in a limited-edition tin box featuring 4 custom lobby cards and a figurine of Crow T. Robot! Features four of the show’s most-requested episodes–First Spaceship on Venus (1960), Laserblast (1978), Werewolf (1996), and Future War (1997).
* “The Oral History of MST3K” feature in three parts.
* 2008 Comic-Con MST3K Reunion Panel, featuring Joel Hodgson, Mike Nelson, Jim Mallon, Kevin Murphy, Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, Mary Jo Pehl, Bill Corbett, J. Elvis Weinstein, Paul Chaplin and Bridget Jones-Nelson. Moderated by Patton Oswald.
* Original film trailers.
* “Variations On A Theme Song”, featuring all six versions of the theme song.
* Limited-edition version comes in a tin box with 4 lobby cards and a figurine of Crow T. Robot, all exclusive to this set.
The set will hit shelves on October 28, and make sure to look for it again in my DVD’s I Bought This Week column.
