Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 6

Encoding: Region 1 (U.S. and Canada only)
Colour, Box set

Number of discs:


It's Mystery Science Theater 3000 - the TV show that made fun of bad movies. But you probably already knew that and I'll be danged if I'm going to kick off yet another review with a description of the now defunct Sci-Fi Channel / Comedy Channel show!

So let me just get to the point: I was slightly disappointed by this particular box set. It contains Teenagers from Outer Space, Attack of the Giant Leeches, Gunslinger and a new collection of shorts. The collection of shorts (always funny) is welcome, but I found the other episodes here to be rather average. There are far funnier episodes out there (where's Prince of Space damn it!?). On Gunslinger (a Roger Corman-produced Western - believe it or not!) the sound of the movie itself was so poor that I had a difficult time making out the dialogue.

MST3K faithfuls would want to buy this set if they hadn't done so already, but newbies would be better served checking out Eegah or Mystery Science Theater 3000 ? the Movie (even though that one is unacceptably expensive on DVD) instead.

THE DISCS: As is usual for Mystery Science Theater 3000 discs there are few extras. No uncut versions of the movies either.

WORTH IT? If you're already a fan, yes. Otherwise, check out the other Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes mentioned here.

Save your bucks for Volume 7 which will hopefully contain Prince of Space - anyone from Rhino out there listening?
