Editorial Reviews

How can something so awful be so much fun? That's a riddle solved once again by the men, women, and robots of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which turns affectionate mockery into an art form in this new collection of deliriously funny episodes from the beloved TV series. Joel, Mike, Tom Servo, Crow, and the usual gang of misfits take us on another memorable ride through four films that only the films mothers could love. Fasten your seatbelts. The Satellite of Love is back in action at warped speed.

This is the ninth 4-disc MST3K collection from Rhino Video. It features two shows hosted by creator Joel Hodgson and two hosted by head writer Mike Nelson. This wonderful collection plumbs the creative depths of the show from its first season all the way to season eight. Three episodes come from the Comedy Central years, while the fourth show is from the first season of the show produced for the Sci-Fi Channel. Here is a synopsis of each episode:


"Hi-keeba!" This is the episode from which the most popular MST3K catch phrase of all time originates! It's a 1966 color science fiction (SF) film wherein a spaceship crashes on a primordial planet inhabited by primitive savages. Time dilation while traveling faster than light causes the rescue crew to arrive eighteen years later. By then, all of the crash survivors are dead, but one of their offspring, a young man named Tang, survives. One member of the rescue crew, Linda, meets Tang and falls in love.

This disc has a brief extra feature, wherein Irene Tsu, who played Linda in the movie, provides a short introduction to the film.

This is one of the best episodes from MST3K season one. If you haven't seen a season one show before, be warned that the show's sets were much cheaper looking than in later seasons and Josh Weinstein voiced Tom Servo; Kevin Murphy was still working only behind the scenes at this time. However, the cleverness of the MST3K concept, talent of the performers and the quality of the writing came together well for this episode and the results are quite hilarious. Listen for the terrific running gag, "Tang, it's not just for breakfast anymore."


In this 1967 biker film, a small motorcycle gang plans a bank heist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Collection From Best Brains and Rhino April 5, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Rhino has put together an excellent mix of episodes for Volume Nine, including one from the series' first year that aired on the Comedy Channel (before it merged with Ha! to become Comedy Central). Unless you were a fan of the show at that time and had the Comedy Channel on your cable system or knew of someone who did and taped the episodes for you to borrow, chances are you never saw any episodes from that first year because Best Brains hated airing them. Besides, and collection that includes both Ed Wood and Ray Dennis Steckler is worth the money if only for the bots' comments. However, the most compelling reason to buy is that if you're a Mystie, you already have the eight other volumes, so why stop here?

104 - WOMEN OF THE PREHISTORIC PLANET - Ultra-cheesy low budget sci-fi flick about two astronauts (Wendell Corey and John Agar) who bring together Linda and Tang to populate the planet. Featuring shoddy sets, man-eating plants, giant lizards, a huge spider, Lyle Waggoner, and Stuart Margolin, it's produced by Jack Broder, the man who gave us "Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla." This episode is where the famous MST phrase "Hi-Keeba!" comes from, uttered in the movie by one of the supporting cast. The film is introduced by Linda Tsu, who played Irene.

207 - THE WILD REBELS - An incoherent mess of a movie about a stock car driver who is talked into being the getaway car driver for a gang called Satan's Angels who are about to pull a bank job. The guy who talks out hero into this is a cop planning ac trap, but the rebels escape.

613 - THE SINISTER URGE - Ed Wood! A film about a fiend who goes berserk watching a sex film and stalks the leading lady. Detectives Kenne Duncan and James Moore seek to catch the fiend and destroy the film that caused the crime.

Opening Credits (Beginning Remarks):

Another release of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 episodes from Rhino and another nice split between episodes hosted by Joel Robinson and his replacement, Mike Nelson. I really enjoyed the mix we got here. It opens with a rare look at MST3k's first season and concludes with one of my favorite episodes from the Sci-Fi channel era. Some brief comments on each of the episodes follow.


A Joel Episode. It's extremely difficult to watch this movie, because it's so incredibly static. You'll get distracted by the non-moving surface of the wall next to your TV set. The director obviously didn't believe in moving the camera; they bought a tripod and, damnit, they'll lock it off if they want to.

That complaint aside, this film is the embodiment of every 1950s-1960s bad science fiction movie: the goofy science, the boring plot, the long sequences of planetary explorers slowing making their way across the same three studio sets, the "twist" ending which connects the fate of the futuristic astronauts with the birth of mankind. It desperately needs a good comic relief character. But unfortunately, the best the movie can provide is a guy who yells "HI-KEEBA!" and falls over.

I'm not a huge fan of the early episodes of MST3k, and the deadening pain caused by the sheer boredom of this film does not help. Still, the jokes are pretty decent, even if the riffing doesn't have the quickness and the polish that Best Brains would later develop.

(Oh, and if you're looking for a lot of women in this movie, too bad. Despite the title, the planet they land on is entirely bereft of females.)


A Joel episode.

I agree. I buy these sets immediately upon release, so Rhino's speeding up production is a great idea. There's no need to whet our appetites--oh wait, Rhino never even offers sneak previews of what's coming next on these sets via its website anyway, opting instead to promote the latest... Read More

Why is it out of print?
I'm not sure Miranda, but my guess is that because the movie Women of the Prehistoric Planet was a season one episode, the rights to use it for distribution ran out, and Rhino could, under law, no longer own it for sale. I'm trying to catch up on these volumes myself, and when the rights issues... Read More
