Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This four-disc set, bundled together in an appropriately cheesy but charming package that sports pop-up-book-styled artwork, compiles four episodes of the Peabody Award-winning comedy series. The "experiments" in question (Bloodlust, Catalina Caper, The Creeping Terror, and The Skydivers) aren't necessarily MST3K's finest hours--they don't hold a candle to the show's takes on The Magic Sword, The Atomic Brain, and The Brain That Wouldn't Die. But the barrage of verbal zingers and pop-culture references slung by hosts Joel Hodgson and Mike Nelson and their puppet pals Crow and Tom Servo are still quite funny, and should please both longtime fans and science fiction aficionados who don't take too much umbrage at having their beloved movies heckled.

The Collection is decidedly Mike-centric, with The Creeping Terror, Bloodlust, and The Skydivers all culled from his reign during the sixth season. Series creator Joel Hodgson's participation is relegated to season 2's Catalina Caper, a fan favorite that at one time was pulled from circulation over rights issues. As with most of Rhino's MST3K DVDs, each disc is dual-sided, with one side devoted to the original, uncut version of each film, and the other given over to the "MSTied" version. Theatrical trailers for each movie round out the remainder of the supplemental features. Given the size of this presentation, it might have been interesting to include some interviews with the show's writers and performers (Comedy Central once ran a passable special about the series), but fans will still appreciate having these four episodes together, each providing a wealth of laugh-out-loud moments. --Paul Gaita

From the Back Cover

It's Mystery Science Theater 3000, America's only show that makes fun of really bad B movies from the comfort of a spaceship floating above Earth. Joel Hodgson and Mike Nelson, along with their mechanical companions, wisecracking Crow and well-read chick magnet Tom Servo, make suffering through Hollywood's worst films a breeze. Adding their own dialogue, barrage of witty remarks, and an occasional colorful skit, the next hour and a half will fly by like it were only 90 minutes. There's no ushers with flashlights, crying babies, or women with big hair to spoil the fun!

Included in Volume 1: Bloodlust--Pirates, cannibals, and "Mr. Brady"... oh my! Starring Robert Reed, Wilton Graff, and Lylyan Chauvin; Show #607. Catalina Caper--Bikini-clad nymphs swing their hips while Little Richard flaps his lips. Starring Tommy Kirk, Del Moore, Peter Duryea, and Robert Donner; Show #204. The Creeping Terror--An alien is eating couples in mid-bliss. Starring Vic Savage, Shannon O'Neil, and William Thourlby; show #606. The Skydivers--a skydiving film without the skydivers. Starring Kevin Casey, Eric Tomlin, Tony Cardoza, and Marcia Knight; show #109.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In case you're new to the world of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (MST3K for short, that what us fans - "Misties" - call it), this is the famous TV show where a silhouette of a man and two robots sitting in theater seats provide running commentary for some of the worst movies ever made. The ninety-minute episodes are also scattered with sketches and songs and amount to some of the smartest, most pop-culture savvy, side-splitting comedy ever made.
This is the first of the four-episode collections of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" offered from Rhino (previously they had only offered them in single DVD editions). It contains an interesting mix of movies: a science-fiction horror flick, a drama about skydivers, a 60s beach comedy, and a thriller on a tropical island. Three of the episodes come from the excellent sixth season, when Mike Nelson was the human host and the wisecracks and comments had become razor sharp and fast and furious. One episode comes from the second season, when the show had a more laid-back, friendly humor when Joel Hodgson was the host. Although this collection skews toward the later seasons, it is still a good general introduction to the show for newcomers, since most of the episodes are terrific. Fans who favor Joel Hodgson's style won't enjoy this as much as the second and third box set, but for most fans the inclusion of "The Skydivers" and "The Creeping Terror" make it a must-own.
Here's what you get:
BLOODLUST! Episode #607. A rip-off of "The Most Dangerous Game," only with young college kids (one of whom is Robert Reed, future Brady Bunch dad!). The four dummies land on a jungle island to go exploring and become trapped by the rich but extremely wishy-washy maniac millionaire who owns the island.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atlast Rhino's Releasing a Box Set! October 16, 2002
Format:DVD
Thank you Rhino for finally getting us the box sets we've been clamoring for. In this box set are the episodes "Catalina Caper", "The Creeping Terror", "Bloodlust (with short- A Visit to Uncle Jim's Dairy Farm)", and "The Sky Divers (with short- Why Study Industrial Arts)".
Catalina Caper: 1960's era beach movie with a plot that goes something like this: stolen scroll, lil' Richard singing, dancing, dancing, volleyball, dancing, scuba diving, & dancing. Also appearing in this stink-burger was Lyle Waggoner, from the Carol Burnett show, as a scuba diving hood. Servo's song to Creepy Girl is a classic.
The Creeping Terror: Wow! Can that monster creep! Probably one of the most hilarious movie monsters ever. An old woman with a motorized cart could easily get a way from this creature, and yet dozens of fit young folk get gobbled up by this overgrown shag carpet. Apparently nobody ever figured out the concept of running away during the 50's.
Bloodlust: Robert Reed (Mike Brady from the Brady Bunch) stars as a studly young man vacationing on a yacht with his friends. He wears a T-shirt so tight you'd swear it was painted on. The plot is basically a ripoff of the Most Dangerous Game.
The Sky Divers: Another piece of flotsam from Coleman Francis. With acting preformances so tepid that you wonder if the actors have a pulse. Watch for the truly bizzare dance party with a woman of Amazonian proportions. Also look for Petey the plane.
The Episodes I hope they release soon are "Pod People, "Angels Revenge", "The Puma Man", "Werewolf", and "Santa Claus Conquers The Martians"

4.0 out of 5 stars Movie Sign x 4 December 5, 2002
Format:DVD
If you've never watched Mystery Science Theatre 3000, then you are missing out on one of the funniest television shows of all time. This excellent four-disc set contains four episodes, as well as including the original movies that they were derived from. DVD is a great format for this show; the episodes lose nothing on multiple viewings, and there are loads of jokes that aren't obvious until the third or fourth viewing. One simply can't catch all of the pop culture references and comments the first time around, and subsequent viewings can turn a mildly amusing episode into an uproarious one.
Here are some short comments on each of the four episodes.
BLOODLUST: Starring Robert "The Brady Dad" Reed in the tightest tee-shirt you're ever likely to see, this film has a bunch of young people running around an island inhabited by an enigmatic homicidal maniac. In case you hadn't figured it out, it's the homicidal maniac who has the bloodlust. Also on this disc is the short film: UNCLE JIM'S DAIRY FARM, "the farm of secrets and lies", where two city folks drop off their two annoying kids on their country relatives. Poor kids. Poor audience.
CATALINA CAPER: It has Little Richard! And precious little else. A film that isn't sure whether it wants to be serious or funny. I'd settle on "funny", except that none of the jokes are. It's sort of like what you'd expect Gilligan's Island to be like if you crossed it with a bad episode of Dragnet and threw in some random musical numbers (and God help me, but I actually like some of the songs; I think I need help). "Join me in my Bath of Death!"
THE CREEPING TERROR: You won't believe how bad this movie is. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes I wouldn't have imagined that something like this could have been made.
