MST3K 20th Anniversary Edition


Mystery Science Theater 3000 is one of my all-time favorite shows. In fact, I rank it with the greatest artistic creations in the history of mankind alongside the Cezanne's "Kettle, Glass and Plate with Fruit" and Beethoven's 9th Symphony. Come to think of it, Catalina Caper blows "Kettle, Glass and Plate with Fruit" out of the water.

Anyhow, few months ago Shout Factory released a Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Edition DVD Set. It includes four movies: First Spaceship on Venus, Laserblast, Werewolf, and Future War (not great episodes overall, but Werewolf is hilarious) and a tin containing various goodies, including four custom lobby cards and a figurine of Crow T. Robot. There's also some awesome DVD bonus material included.

The limited edition tin seems to only be available on the secondary market, but if you love the show it's probably worth seeking out.
