Since the ’90s, Turkey Day always meant sitting around the TV and watching a marathon of not football, but Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes. Now fans of the show can sit back this year with Mystery Science Theater 3000 Vol. XXXVII to watch four fresh to DVD classic episodes. The new collection takes us to the Bronx when it was a wasteland, the ocean and alien invasions. Plus if you order early, there’s a bonus disc. The good news is that the DVD boxset arrives on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Here’s the details from Shout! Factory’s press release:
Four DVD Box Set Features Previously Unreleased Episodes

The Human Duplicators, Escape 2000, The Horror of Party Beach and Invasion of the Neptune Men
Available November 22nd
From Shout! Factory
For MST-ies, Turkey Day celebrations go beyond the traditional large meal and watching of a football game. Once a year, they also give thanks for turkeys of the cinematic variety. This November, get ready to feast on four never-before-on-DVD episodes: The Human Duplicators, Escape 2000, The Horror of Party Beach, and Invasion of the Neptune Men with the release of Mystery Science Theater 3000: Vol. XXXVII on DVD November 22nd, 2016 from Shout! Factory.
This 4-DVD collectible tin box set is also stuffed with bonus features, including new introductions by Mary Jo Pehl, MST Hour Wraps, August on Neptune with Japanese film historian August Ragone, Leave The Bronx: Making Escape 2000 featurette, Return to Party Beach featurette, theatrical trailers and four exclusive mini-posters by artist Steve Vance.
The first 1,500 orders placed on ShoutFactory.com will receive an exclusive bonus disc featuring the MST3K Fancy Hollywood Awards Preview Specials.
Volume XXXVII brings us The Human Duplicators, a 1965 science fiction film about an alien, the cybernetic physicist he controls and the blind girl he falls for; Escape 2000 (aka Bronx Warriors 2 and Escape from the Bronx), wherein generic and nefarious corporation gentrifies a Bronx neighborhood to death in the service of creating the city of the future. But when they kill the parents of the first movie’s hero, they are in for some action, low-budget 80s style; Teens and monsters have always had a complicated relationship status in the movies, but The Horror of Party Beach kicks it down a notch or eight, as a coastal town grapples with mutated fishmen who crash a beach party in hideous fashion; and Invasion of the Neptune Men, which stars martial arts legend Sonny Chiba as Space Chief, a superhero of sorts, in this 1961 kids movie of sorts about an alien invasion of sorts.
