When the first volume of Mystery Science Theater arrived on DVD back in 2002, America was still getting over the shock of Y2K. Those days were so long ago. Yet MST3K continues to gain new followers. Many of them don’t want to have to crack open their 401K in order to get a used copy of Volume 1. But luckily Shout! Factory is re-issuing that first precious collection. The four movies include Bloodlust (season six), Catalina Caper (season two), The Creeping Terror (season six) and The Skydivers (season one). They’ve even made fresh bonus content to sweeten the deal. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
