This set features two episodes hosted by Joel Hodgson and two hosted by Mike Nelson. Three are from the Comedy Central era of the show and one is from the Sci-Fi Channel era.

- Episode 208- LOST CONTINENT ("Rock climbing, Joel.")
This 1951 black-and-white Robert Lippert production is directed by Sam Newfield and stars Cesar Romero, Hillary Brooke, Sid Melton, Acquanetta, Whit Bissel and Hugh Beaumont. The main cast comprises a scientific team charged with recovering an off course test rocket. The cast of fairly well-known actors does little to stem the pain of the film's padding accomplished through endless rock climbing sequences, but those elements did elevate this episode to a kind of cult status both within the show and among the MST3K fan base early on. References to rock climbing and other elements of this film abound throughout later episodes of MST3K for years to come. Every fan of the show should see this episode for that reason alone, but don't let me forget to mention that it's absolutely hilarious. Stop motion dinosaurs and lizards posing as monsters make occasional appearances in the film. And did I mention rock climbing?

- Episode 417- CRASH OF THE MOONS with short, "General Hospital"-Segment 3
Rocky Jones (Richard Crane) and his crew comprising Winky (Scotty Beckett of Our Gang/Little Rascals shorts), Bobby, Vena and Professor Newton are back for another adventure from this short-lived 1954 TV show. So is the evil dictator, Cleolanta (Patsy Parsons), who in this episode is scheming to destroy another inhabited "moon" before it collides with her own planet. The wayward moon is ruled by the affable Bavarro, played by John Banner, later of Hogan's Heroes fame.

July 13th is another big day in the life of all MST3K fans as Volume 18 hits the stores. This is a great solid set of popular episodes. Let's take a look at what we have
EPISODE 208 # THE LOST CONTINENT - This was a great surprise as most of us thought Robert Lippert movies ( this one, Rocketship XM, Jungle Goddess,etc) seemed like they would not be attainable. For those that have seen it - this was exciting. For those who havent this is a great episode in the 2nd season. The Lost Continent stars Cesar Romero ( The Joker on the Batman TV series with Adam West), Hugh Beaumont ( Ward Cleaver on Leave it to Beaver)& a sold 50s B movie cast including Sid Melton, John Hoyt, Whit Bissell all looking for a downed atomic rocket. They track it up a mountain on a plateau. They need to climb a mountain to get to the rocket. We get to see every second of what is called by MST3K fans & well as Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank as 'Rock Climbing'.
This was the theme of the show as told by Dr Clayton Forrester & TV's Frank - "Rock Climbing Joel" . They harp on it so much that Joel doesn't get to do his invention exchange. This invention would turn up in the next episode Hellcats actually.
Rock Climbing is actually worse than the sandstorm theme in Hercules vs the Moon Men as the Rock Climbing scenes last for a long while during the movie. When the cast reaches the top they find the 'Lost Continent' with some pretty cool Dinosaurs. The black & white film turns to a nice greenish color when the dinosaurs appear. The 2 female characters are hardly in it - Acquanetta & Hillary Burke. It is all about male bonding climbing the mountain.
This episode also contained the "Cool Thing" which wouldn't be revealed until the 3rd Season. I personally love this episode and is my favorite from this set...

I am buying this mainly for "Beast of Yucca Flats." The other ones are all very funny too, but Beast is classic. You won't believe how it's filmed. You never see any of the actors talk, whenever someone speaks the camera turns away from them from what I recall. Tor Johnson is awesomely bad as usual. Also, "Progress Island USA" is a great short, one of my faves out of all of the shorts. It's a travelogue about Puerto Rico, and you'll be saying, "OK! We'll move there!!" for days after you see it. For newbie fans: these are hilarious. Watch with a group!

I can't believe how many people are whining about the video quality on these DVDs. Sure, yes, there is some flickers and tape damage here and there. Are people seriously complaining about the PICTURE quality on a LOW BUDGET PUPPET SHOW that features OLD, BEAT UP PRINTS OF 50'S B-MOVIES for 80% of the episode?!?!?!?!

Sorry, didn't mean to rant. I love MST3k very very much, and I'm happy someone is taking the time to preserve this show on DVD. If the master tapes of the material took some damage, then that's the best we're gonna get, end of story. In this particular collection, there is a few flickers on the episodes, but nothing that actually interrupts the average person's enjoyment of the episode (i.e. nothing that obscures a visual to the point of missing a joke about it, etc.). Honestly, there's very little damage here, even on LOST CONTINENT, where they tell you there's gonna be a lot of tape damage.

Anyway, on the actual content: THIS IS A GREAT COLLECTION! It has something from every era of the show, and all the episodes are very enjoyable.

LOST CONTINENT: The first episode is about a team of scientist explorer type people who climb a mountain in search of a lost rocket. Instead they find... well.. look at the title of the movie. A fun episode, as it combines old TV stars, endless rock climbing footage, and surprisingly gory clay-mation dinosaur fights. The riffs are fast and solid, you'll laugh. Not exactly one of my top 10 Joel episodes, but still a very fine entry into the MST3k canon.

CRASH OF THE MOONS: Another Joel episode, though a few years later when the show was running a bit smoother. This is the second Rocky Jones TV-show-turned-into-a-movie that they did, the first being MANHUNT IN SPACE.
