Editorial Reviews

Ahead of its time in many ways, the beloved comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 used social media before there was social media. Consider: a creative team of actors and writers put on a puppet show and shared with us not just cheesy old movies, but how they felt about them. They sent their show into the ether, hoping to find kindred spirits to join in the fun and pain. The comments were delivered verbally in snarky one-liners called riffs, the spiritual father of funny tweets. The initial popularity of the show mushroomed as fans made tapes and traded them…viral videos before they turned digital. Is it any wonder, then, that the first MST fans were drawn to the burgeoning internet, using it to find each other and share the love? All of the above notwithstanding, this new DVD collection is the only way to own these four never-before-released episodes with fun extras. Relationship status? It’s not complicated: fans forever. #MovieSign!

One of the best reasons to buy the box sets, instead of watching the shows on the internet, is to watch the excellent contextual mini documentaries that SHOUT!

This set features two episodes hosted by Joel Hodgson from the Comedy Central years of the show and two hosted by Mike Nelson from the Sci-Fi Channel years. It contains episodes from seasons one, four, eight and nine and covers a wide variety of film genres.

112- UNTAMED YOUTH
This 1957 black-and-white film stars Mamie Van Doren and Lori Nelson as sisters arrested while hitchhiking in a rural town. A corrupt system sends them to a work farm where they are essentially used as slave labor. The movie also includes a brief appearance by early rocker Eddie Cochran (perhaps best known for Summertime Blues). This is one of the last episodes of Season 1 MST3K and it shows, the riffing is getting nice and dense and it's an enjoyable episode in spite of the lackluster drama of a film which has little to offer other than a few well-known cast members.This film is the first of many non-SF/horror films used on MST3K. Great host segments round out this enjoyable MST3K episode. With this episode Season 1 is now nearly complete on DVD with only the Black Scorpion remaining to be released.

412- HERCULES AND THE CAPTIVE WOMEN
This Italian 1961 color film stars body builder Reg Park. The terrific Gian Maria Volonté (For A Few Dollars More, A Fistful Of Dollars) is also in this entertaining sword-and-sandal epic full of monsters and magic. Hercules must venture to Atlantis to rescue his son. It's worth watching just for the movie line, "This day is dedicated to Uranus." Needless to say, MST3K makes some great comedy out of this lively adventure film. Host segments include a Hercules action figure and the history of Hercules presented by Crow. A highly enjoyable episode.

I haven't seen the early two episodes and "The Thing That Couldn't Die" is a dreadfully dull movie (great riffing aside), but the key to this release and the reason I will so totally buy it is that it contains PUMAMAN!

"PumaMan" is one of my favorite MST eps and truly a unique entry in the cannon. There have been plenty of terrible super hero movies released over the years but I don't think MST has ever gotten to do any of them besides this gloriously inept feature!

How gloriously inept is PumaMan? Well, you know how in Superman: The Movie they used backwards projection, cables, and good camera angles to convincingly make Christopher Reeves look like he's flying? They try the same thing in PumaMan except the filmmakers don't try to match ANY backwards projection shots and apparently use only one cable attached to the back of the actors belt so the effect isn't the actor flying so much as randomly tumbling through the air, flailing wildly with his butt in the air. Or sometimes they don't use a cable at all and just have him *walk* accross the backwards projection screen. Once you see how PumaMan flies you will *never ever* forget it!

PumaMan's superhero outfit is just tan slacks, penny loafers, a black shirt with a gold sparkly mask on it and a cape the size of a medium towel tied around his neck. He wears no mask or disquise on his face whatsoever. His theme music sounds like a supermarket jingle and the soundtrack primarily plays this rousing theme on a harpsichord!

Wow !! Amazing four disc set, all are classically bad sci-fi slash fantasy movies, and the Mystery Science crew is super funny as always. Highly recommended.

The back of the box attempts to draw a line between MST3K and social media, calling the riffs the precursors of "tweets", and trading the MST3K tapes, to sharing videos on YouTube. The actual fact is that the riffing on these films was based on the audience participation that went along with midnight showings of ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. The ROCKY HORROR fans gather in old theaters, calling out jokes to the movie screen, and acting out bits of the film onstage, just like Joel and the Bots do between scenes. As much as gets bantered concerning the origins of film riffing, its odd people don't credit the ROCKY HORROR craze for this, especially since Rocky Horror was still popular in the late 80s when MST3K premiered.

Since other reviews pretty much summed up the films, I'll pay attention to the EXTRAS that come with this box set. One of the best reasons to buy the box sets, instead of watching the shows on the internet, is to watch the excellent contextual mini documentaries that SHOUT! creates for these box sets.

UNTAMED YOUTH episode 112
This film is one of those late 50s rock and roll morality tales, with teens that get into trouble, from such delinquent behavior as swimming in your underwear. It stars Mamie Van Doren, a Marilyn Monroe look alike sex symbol. She's arrested for undie-swimming, and sentenced to this forced labor farm, where the teens dance to Eddie Cochran songs. I'm not a fan of season one, but by the end of that first year, they had obviously found their groove.
EXTRAS---This film has Joel introducing the film, along with another extra where Joel talks about his NEWEST project, Joel Hodgson's RIFFING MYSELF.
