A man and his puppets in space watching cheesy movies … sounds crazy, no? But here on the Satellite of Love you might say each one of us is a captive audience, watching gifted writers and performers try to make sense of it all without losing their minds. Why do we continue to treasure this oddball TV series? That can be answered in one word: funny!
On November 26th, 2013, join us as we celebrate 25 years of cult-movie craziness with Mystery Science Theater 3000: 25th Anniversary Edition from Shout! Factory. Housed in a collectible silver(ish) tin, MST3K: 25th Anniversary Edition is a five DVD set that features the films Moon Zero Two, The Day The Earth Froze, The Leech Woman and Gorgo. Also included are all new bonus features including the three-part documentary Return To Eden Prairie: 25 Years Of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Life After MST3K: Mary Jo Pehl, Ninth Wonder Of The World: The Making Of Gorgo (MST3K Edition), Last Flight Of Joel Robinson, MST Hour wraps, four exclusive mini-posters by artist Steve Vance, and more!
As a special gift to celebrate the silver anniversary, we’re including a bonus DVD in the set with a double feature of two long-out-of-print fan-favorite episodes. Yes, we said we weren’t going to get each other gifts, but we just couldn’t help ourselves! On this special occasion, we brought back two key episodes that were the shot heard ’round the MSTie world: Joel’s last episode, Mitchell and Mike’s first episode, The Brain That Wouldn’t Die.
