SHOUT! FACTORY BRINGS FOUR PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 EPISODES TO DVD ON NOVEMBER 22ND, AND BRINGS BACK THE ANNUAL TURKEY DAY MARATHON!
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000, and I have yet to miss out on any of the numerous boxed sets. (Including the OOP Rhino set that came with GODZILLA VS. MEGALON!)
Seriously, I could owe a loanshark fifty bucks, and I'd skip out on paying him and having my pinky finger broken, just so I could sit and enjoy some quality time with Joel Hodgson, Mike Nelson, and their robotic companions! If you're as big a fan of this show as I am, then you won't want to miss out on Volume XXXVII!
402 - THE HUMAN DUPLICATORS: Aliens quietly invade Earth and implement the "Galaxy Domination Program," which involves replacing various scientists with android doubles. But things go wrong for the would-be conquerors when their android creations begin to defy them! Join Joel and the bots as they suffer through this movie, do invention exchanges, and dabble in some duplicating of their own!
705 - ESCAPE 2000: The "General Construction Corporation" sends teams of mercenaries into the Bronx to kick everyone out. Those that don't "Leave the Bronx" are promptly executed, whether they put up a fight or not. After his parents are killed by the evil corporation, the heroic "Trash" rallies the remaining gangs in the Bronx against Henry Silva and his army of mercs. Mike and the bots suffer though this heavily edited version of Enzo Castellari's post-apocalyptic sequel to 1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS after Crow nearly burns down the bridge of the SOL. Meanwhile, Clayton Forrester puts his mom in a "home," then tries to improve the SOL's ratings by briefly adding a new crewmember.
817 - THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH: Barrels of chemical waste are dropped into the ocean, and turn a bunch of skeletal remains on the ocean floor into a legion of blood-sucking sea monsters! Amidst the battle to destroy the creatures, there's romance, music, and lots of dancing on the beach. When not riffing on this episode's film, Mike, Crow, and Servo attempt to do some "manly beach dancing" and sing a song about Sodium, while Pearl, "Brain Guy," and Bobo continue to fool ancient Romans into thinking they are gods.
819 - INVASION OF THE NEPTUNE MEN: Alien beings plan to conquer Earth, but they didn't count on PRINCE OF SPACE wannabee "Space Chief!" In his rocket-powered car, Space Chief takes the fight to the invaders on Earth's behalf, while being cheered-on by kids in short shorts. During this episode, Mike and the bots watch in horror as the "Nanobots" battle Mike's eyelash mites, Krankor visits the SOL, and Pearl and "Brain Guy" try to make Professor Bobo remember who he is.
