5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the dough, great episodes March 8 2003
I echo the sentiments of an earlier reviewer that this is better than the first box set, which I thought was still great. My wife doesn't like or dislike MST3K but even she watched a couple of these and laughed out loud a lot. She also shook her head in amazement a lot as she seemed to mull over how bad a movie can actually be. And these are some stinkers.
Pod People is a completely pointless endeavor whose saving grace is that most of the time it's too mistie (pun!) to see how bad the plot/set is. Basically aliens land and kill people but it's really ok because they are just misunderstood. Crow really rescues this one with his "McCloud!" comments.
Cave Dwellers is ferociously bad. To be honest I'm not sure why they called it Cave Dwellers since no one really spent any time dwelling in caves. The main guy and his pet mute guy lived in a cave but they leave it early and spend the rest of the time outside. Whatever. Anyway Joel and the bots really save this montrosity since viewers would otherwise just sit there wondering why a cheap Conan ripoff character was wearing so much makeup. The fight scenes are hilariously correographed as well, making the multiple jumping, spinning kicks of Jean-Claude Van Dum seem elegant and realistic. You can also look forward to reeling in amazement as the director crosses all bounds of taste by having the main character in his medieval-set movie drop bombs on his enemy from a hang-glider.
Angel's Revenge is basically a useless boob-fest from the decade that gave us such hits as "I will survive". A cast of tightly-clad women that are racially-mixed enough to satisfy the creators of Power Rangers goes on a vigilante spree, targeting some drug kingpin. Tom Sirvo sums this one up when one of the girls rides her motorcycle into a pool because another girl is drowning, saying, "Yeah I can see why she needed a motorcycle to do that."
This box-set is the best laugh-for-dollar ratio I have ever seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Films great! Shorts a plus! May 2 2003
By A Customer
When I saw this collection I knew I had to have it. 3 of the best episodes they did are all here. I was delighted to see 'Shorts Vol. 1' included. The 'Date With Your Family' segment is ne of my favorites! The stereotypical 1950s family is a scream when viewed today. All in all I loved the set, but only gave it 4 out of 5...like many others I found the cases a drag. Neat box effects but a word to Rhino - make the DVD spindle a bit SMALLER then the DVD center hole!

This is Rhino's second DVD collection of four episodes of "Mystery Science Theater 3000," and it's excellent. It has three great episodes from various seasons, and a fourth disc of hilarious short subjects. And it comes in a nifty package with moving parts!
In case you're new to the world of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (MST3K for short, that's what us fans -- "Misties" -- call it), this is the famous TV show where a silhouette of a man and two robots in theater seats provide running commentary for some of the worst movies ever made. The ninety-minute episodes are scattered with sketches and songs and amount to some of the smartest, most pop-culture savvy, side-splitting comedy ever made.
This DVD contains three episodes, plus a compilation of short subjects from different episodes. The episodes cover a wide spectrum: two are from early in season three, when Joel Hodgson was the host and the show was just kicking into high gear. The third is from late in the sixth season, when the show had developed a much more slick and sarcastic approach with host Mike Nelson. People new to the show will get a good chance to compare the styles of the show. Personally, I love both, but they are quite different. The Shorts are brief films that the host would sometimes make fun of before the movie. Originally, they watched episodes of old movie serials, but when those quickly became tiresome, they turned to educational, commercial, and industrial filmstrips (you know, those annoying things you had to watch at school assemblies in sixth grade?). They contain some of the funniest riffing in the series, and are favorites of the fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Volume 2 is the best so far! Jan. 11 2004
In my opinion, Volume 2 is the best of the four sets released thus far. "Pod People" and "Cave Dwellers" are among MST3K's classic episodes, and what fan would miss out on the Shorts?
Angels Revenge: T&A are the main assets in this Charlie's Angels ripoff, wherein buxom vigilantes fight drug dealers. Notable stars include Alan "Skipper" Hale, Jim "Thurston" Backus, Pat "Mr. Haney" Buttram, and Jack Palance -- all obviously in more desperate times.
Pod People: A magical ALF wannabe from outer space visits a northern town -- wackiness ensues. "Pod People" uses the cinematic convention that aliens will attack adults and befriend children. As Dr. Forester says, "It has nothing to do with pods, nothing to do with people, and everything to do with HURTING".
Cave Dwellers: A knockoff of Conan the Barbarian, "Cave Dwellers" features a medieval world vaguely under attack. The heroine's pie pan chestplate and an inexplicable hang-gliding scene make this one a breeze for Joel and the Bots. Not as good at the Steve Reeves Hercules episodes, but still good fun.
Shorts: Arguably the best part of MST3K, the Shorts Volume 1 collects half of the bits from the Shorts VHS collection for your viewing pleasure. The shorts are a nice change of pace from the two-hour films, which can become tedious after a while if you're not in the mood for them. They also cover topics *so* obscure (from chicken farming to industrial arts to "A Date With Your Family") that you can be sure this is the only time they'll ever be on DVD.
As stated, this is my favorite MST3K volume. It may not be the best collection to pull in new fans, but for veterans of the series, it's definitely the best Rhino's released yet.
