Interestingly enough, only one of the films here is actually a science fiction film. Here is a brief summery about each of the films mocked in this collection.
BLOODLUST-A modern-day (for 1961) re-telling of "The Most Dangerous Game" with teenagers. Two young couples on an ocean cruise make an unplanned stop when they come to an island. There they meet a British safari hunter and his own private army of obedient natives. They meet another couple there, and soon learn that thier host hunts not animals, but people. Although the commentary here is funny as always, I actually thought this was a pretty good movie on it's own, deserving of better than this type of mockery. But then again if it had never been picked up by MST3 I probably never would have found out about it.
CATALINA CAPER-Middle aged folks steal a piece of art from a museum and it's up to a group of beach bum teenagers to save the day. The film features not one but two rather obvious (and odeious) komic (not comic) relief characters: a dunder-headed thief (how'd a dope like him manage to steal the art without getting caught?) and a really clumsy F.B.I. agent who functions as a third-rate inspector Cluseou. (Well, O.K., the scene where he goes fishing and snags an unexpected catch was classic.) Still worth watching if only because of Mike and the 'bots and their ribbing.
THE CREEPING TERROR-The only science fiction film featured here, this one features little dialouge from the characters and mostly just from the narrator (go to imdb.com and look this film up, then click on trivia to see why this is) and has a lumbering alien that looks like a bunch of stitched-together carpets devouring people.

Format: DVD
If you want a prime example of what it means to be a "cult classic" television series, MST3K is it. It even has a following that is very similar to Monty Python's Flying Circus. The show is loved by so many people all over the country. It was only a matter of time when we'd see some of these shows put into volume sets. "Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume 1" is an excellent set with some very funny shows.
Who would've thought that the perfect instruments of torture could be B movies? Well, we quickly learn that this is possible with the show. MST3K is all about a man (either Joel Hodgson or Mike Nelson) and his robots being forced to watch some of the worst movies ever created. In the process, they wisecrack their way through every single one of them. It is a talent to admire, as many of us can do the same thing; however, many of us cannot get the same hilarious results as these guys do.
The set includes the movies "Bloodlust," "Catalina Caper," "The Creeping Terror," and "The Skydivers." The best ones are "Bloodlust" and "The Skydivers," as they are really lousy movies; meaning that the boys are able to come up with some hilarious lines and observations. You also have the chance to see these films without the MST3K crew (why in the world would you want to subject yourself to that??!!). Theatrical trailers for the movies are also available on the DVDs.
This is a wonderful show that is brilliantly clever and fresh. It will always remain a favorite of mine, that's for sure. "Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume 1" is a treat to have and a joy to watch. You'll be watching each episode over and over again. A MUST for MST3K fans all around.

Ok, I'm a big Mistie from way back, so I was all set to start buying all of these like a Star Wars fan who hears a new movie's coming out.
However, Rhino is missing a great chance. First off, having acquired the rights to the movies, they feel compelled to include the original versions of all the movies on the other sides of the discs. That would be great as an extra, except that it limits the box sets to only four movies each. At that rate, the whole run will cost $1500-$2000! Moreover, there are no extras at all! How about more shorts? The Poopie? Making Ofs? Interviews? Commentary, for Chrissakes? Just look at The Simpsons box sets to see how it should be done. Oh, on top of all that, they're not starting at the beginning of Season One or even going in any chronological order at all. It's not even a Best Of based on anything. GRR!
Your best move is to pick and choose your favorite episodes, not to collect all of these as they come out; go for some of the single episodes instead.

Format: DVD
This is a great set with a wide variety of film genres getting the MST3K treatment. Bloodlust is a gruesome remake of the Most Dangerous Game, Catalina Caper is a Tommy Kirk beach romp with some intentional "comedy", The Creeping Terror is possibly the worst and lowest budget monster-on-the-loose picture ever made, and The Skydivers is a Coleman Francis (doesn't that say it all?) "drama" involving some skydivers, a love-triangle gone awry and lots of cups of coffee from the same guy who brought us Beast of Yucca Flats. A great selection for both the long-term MST3K fan or someone just wanting to check out the show for the first time. Catalina Caper is worth it alone, as this comes from the legendarily hilarious second season of the show; when you hear Tom Servo singing "Creepy Girl" you'll know why MST3K is possibly the funniest show ever to be on television.
