5.0 out of 5 stars Another great set, especially TIME CHASER March 17, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This fifth collection of episodes from the TV comedy, "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (the program where a silhouette of a man and two robots in theater seats provide comedic commentary for rotten movies), contains four episodes from the Sci-Fi Channel seasons. Mike Nelson is the host, Billy Corbett does Crow's voice, and Pearl Forrester is the evil scientist holding the crew of the Satellite of Love hostage. Some fans aren't fond of the host segments in these later seasons, but there are some occasional funny ones. The riffing, however, is good as ever, and has changed to an angry, sarcastic style different from the Joel years.
(This is the second collection in a row of Sci-Fi Channel episodes. Although some of these episodes are hilarious, I hope Rhino turns to some of the early seasons in later collections to keep balance.)
Disc 2 has a great extra: a half-hour interview with Mike Nelson and Kevin Murphy (who wrote for the show for all ten seasons, and played Tom Servo for nine). The interview covers the show's origin, history, and the process of making an episode. Both men are incredibly funny and have a great time reliving memories. For fans, this interview makes the collection a must-have on its own. (As with the last collection, Mike Nelson also does a brief intro to each episode.)
The episodes all good, and one is fantastic:
BOGGY CREEK II: AND THE LEGEND CONTINUES. Episode #1006. This 1983 movie is actually the third Boggy Creek flick. Since the producer of the first film had no involvement in the first sequel, he ignored it an declared this "Boggy Creek II.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rock'n'Roll Martian! March 30, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Four more episodes from the Sci-Fi Channel era of "Mystery Science Theater 3000". Four more really lousy movies. From my point of view, the only bad thing about picking movies from these later seasons is that I've already seen them. I'd prefer more films from the earlier years, although I can't complain about having these episodes on DVD. (Personally, I can't wait for the release of RIDING WITH DEATH.)
In addition to Mike Nelson's all-new introductions that run before each episode, this DVD set also includes an interview with Nelson and Kevin "Tom Servo" Murphy (it's on the second disc, but you wouldn't know that from looking on the box). There probably isn't anything here that fans don't already know about, but it's fun to hear those two discussing everything from taping the opening-door sequences to what they've been up to since the series ended. After name-checking, they offer some stories about the network executives who just didn't "get" the series. I've heard them complain before, but I still laughed when they talked about the suit who suggested that they run complicated multi-story-spanning plot-arcs in an attempt to bring in and retain viewers. Yeah, that's exactly why people watched the show.
Here are some comments on each of the four episodes:
BOGGY CREEK II: AND THE LEGEND CONTINUES. I'm a little ashamed to say, but I kind of liked this movie. Well, pieces of it anyway. Certainly not the poop flashback. Or the skinny, shirtless, son-of-the-director-getting-a-movie-role guy. Well, anyway, this is the movie that did for Arkansas what GIANT SPIDER INVASION did for Wisconsin.

Rhino has seen fit to release more MST3K movies from the Sci-Fi era which, considering that the Sci-Fi Channel has stopped broadcasting reruns, couldn't have come at a better time.

"Boggy Creek II: And The Legend Continues" turns Bigfoot into a good old boy from the Arkansas swamps. My favorite character is played by Jimmy Clem, a 400 plus pound hillbilly who wears bib overalls but doesn't wear a shirt. "I'm immodest, tee-hee," Crow intones in a Southern accent. He contrasts nicely with the main character's son Chuck Pierce, a scrawny kid who goes shirtless for most of the movie. When Chuck knocks on the door of a house, Crow asks, "Can I borrow a cup of shirt?" The best actor in the movie is the Boggy Creek creature.

"Merlin's Shop Of Mystical Wonders" is a horror movie disguised as a family friendly film. In the first of two stories, a meddlesome cat is roasted by a fire-breathing, wanna-be wizard. Unfortunately, one of the side effects of casting spells is dragon breath! In the second story, an evil toy monkey is stolen from Merlin's shop. Some dumb kid ends up getting it for a birthday present. The evil monkey starts a fire in the garage, which kills the kid's dog. This film was not endorsed by PETA! As the monkey gets stronger, the kid almost gets hit by a car while riding his bike, and his father almost gets killed when he buries the monkey. Merlin provides much needed comic relief, as he spends most of this story asking people if they've seen his monkey!

"Time Chasers" is the funniest film of the four. Filmed on a shoestring budget in beautiful Rutland, Vermont, the no-name cast makes a valiant attempt to convince the audience that they're traveling through time.
