"Mystery Science Theater 3000" Vol. 6 (DVD)

Review by Suzanne 12/16/04

I have to admit that I've never been a big fan of this show.  It's funny, but not so funny that I would set aside time to watch it when it was airing.  The show has a lot of devoted fans, however, so obviously not everyone agrees with me.

Basically, they take old movies and make cracks throughout them.  It's something you and your friends might do, but in this case the jokes are funnier because they figure them out ahead of time and pick the funniest ones.  And presumably, since they are comedians, they are funnier than your friends.  There are also some skits that the characters do, and some of them are very funny.

If I were collecting this series, I would be disappointed by the fact that they put only four episodes per set (only one per disk!).  So you have to buy a LOT of them to get the full season.  This is Vol. 6 and it's still season one.  How many disks will it take to complete the whole ten years? Do the math...I guess they figure that the fans are so devoted that they will pay it regardless.

The other drawback is that there are no extras.  There is no subtitling, or foreign-language choices, either.  Sometimes the jokes go by very fast, so it would have been nice to see some of them in the closed-captioning.
