Customer Reviews:

  • Interesting, but not the best material
    First of all, there's only one Joel episode (First Spaceship to Venus). The packaging, which by the way is excellent, gives you know clue of this and if you don't happen to remember when the episodes aired it's a little hard to keep track.

    The treatment stays true to form though with all four movies and I did liked the discussion of the show by veterans of the program. I've gotten very few of the MST3Ks on DVD (I played the tapes to death!) but this one is well worth getting a hold of....more info
  • 20 years? Time flies...
    The 20th Anniversary Edition is a great find. The extras include a three part history of MST3K, the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con International Reunion Panel, original trailers of all the movies and variations on the opening theme song.
    Now, let's get to the movies!

    First Spaceship On Venus, Show 211, is one of those episodes I missed watching on MST3K but did see on TV in real life. And I happened to like it for the way they handled the settings, alien technology and future human technology. I liked the international feel to the film. But the plot sucks. And the message is boring - technology gets out of control, we're all going to die. YAWN. But I did like the film's robot and of course Joel and the Bots helped me get through the movie without falling asleep.

    LaserBlast, Show 706, is the last MST3K that ran on Comedy Central. This is also the first time I got to see it in any form and, frankly, the movie is really bad. No, even with Mike and the Bots making fun of it the thing stinks. I don't want to give too much away but here is a list of random stuff - clay aliens, laser weapon, the MASK, spaceships, bad video effects. Loved the way the MST3K ended the show with the last segment. How many sci-fi movies can you spot?

    Werewolf, Show 904, starring Joe Estevez is a bad film but one that isn't too bad. Still, once again I am not sure if the werewolf had anything to do with werewolves. In fact it seems to be a Native American Skin Walker. And sometimes it looked more like a puppet or some kind of sick cat.

    Future War, Show 1004, has Robert Z'Dar from Soultaker, exploding, self-cleaning, dinosaurs and lots of flashbacks. Jokes about LSD and Clowns will pepper the show and there are also a huge amount of empty boxes. Oh, and cyborgs. And kick boxing. And boxes. Don't forget the boxes.
    A must for any MST3K collection!...more info

  • excellent
    for a first release on a new label, I thought this was a great debut. I'd never seen but one of these MST3K outings, so it was a treat to catch up. the history of the show was interesting and done in a fun manner as well. if you're a long time fan or a first timer, this is a great addition to any MST3K collection....more info
  • Great MST3K Collection
    If you are a fan of MST3K, you will have purchased this already, and if you don't like it, you will never purchase it, so this "review" is just one more fan giving props. That said, this is a good sampling from a very good show and well worth the price. The only difference between this version of the MST3K 20th Anniversary Set and the more expensive set is the other comes in a metal tin that will not fit on any shelf and has a really poor quality Crow figurine, so you are not missing out on anything.

    You can't go wrong with this set, get it.

  • On time and in perfect condition

  • An awesome MST3K set with nice extras
    This set is a must have for the MST3K fan out there, and a great way to show your friends how sweet this show was. The interviews in the extras offer a lot of insight into all the great work (and repeated viewings of B movies) the creators went through to create one of the funniest and unique shows in television history....more info
