Product Description

Ahead of its time in many ways, the makers of Mystery Science Theater 3000 put on a puppet show and shared with us not just cheesy old movies, but how they felt about them. Then they broadcast the show hoping to find kindred spirits to join in the fun and pain. The initial popularity of the show mushroomed as fans made tapes and traded them, making the show go viral. Now this new DVD collection is the only way to own these four never before released episodes, loaded with bonus features!

5.0 out of 5 stars Untamed Youth, Hercules And The Captive Women, Thing That Couldn't Die, Pumaman Dec 5 2013
By Valnastar - Published on Amazon.com

This set features two episodes hosted by Joel Hodgson from the Comedy Central years of the show and two hosted by Mike Nelson from the Sci-Fi Channel years. It contains episodes from seasons one, four, eight and nine and covers a wide variety of film genres.

This 1957 black-and-white film stars Mamie Van Doren and Lori Nelson as sisters arrested while hitchhiking in a rural town. A corrupt system sends them to a work farm where they are essentially used as slave labor. The movie also includes a brief appearance by early rocker Eddie Cochran (perhaps best known for Summertime Blues). This is one of the last episodes of Season 1 MST3K and it shows, the riffing is getting nice and dense and it's an enjoyable episode in spite of the lackluster drama of a film which has little to offer other than a few well-known cast members.This film is the first of many non-SF/horror films used on MST3K. Great host segments round out this enjoyable MST3K episode. With this episode Season 1 is now nearly complete on DVD with only the Black Scorpion remaining to be released.

This Italian 1961 color film stars body builder Reg Park. The terrific Gian Maria Volonté (For A Few Dollars More, A Fistful Of Dollars) is also in this entertaining sword-and-sandal epic full of monsters and magic. Hercules must venture to Atlantis to rescue his son. It's worth watching just for the movie line, "This day is dedicated to Uranus." Needless to say, MST3K makes some great comedy out of this lively adventure film. Host segments include a Hercules action figure and the history of Hercules presented by Crow. A highly enjoyable episode.

A 1958 black-and-white "horror" film about a psychic young woman who discovers an ancient and evil undead head on her farm. Even for a fantasy horror film it's a ridiculous premise and the movie is ponderous and drab. Nevertheless, the crew of the SOL have some fun with it and there are some entertaining host segments to break up the film. This is the fifth episode of the show to appear on the Sci-Fi Channel after it was canceled on Comedy Central.

Pumaman (aka Puma Man) is a low-budget Italian film starring no one except inexplicably, Donald Pleasance. An Aztec shaman (Miguel Angel Fuentes) gives a mystical medallion to a young man who then becomes flying super-hero Pumaman. Comedy ensues though it's not always clear if it's intentional or not. A fair amount of the movie was shot in the UK. This movie seems a lot like Greatest American Hero, but the movie was actually released about a year before that show went on the air. It's an incredibly goofy movie. Host segments include Shelli The Nanite messing with Mike Nelson's hair. A fun episode.

Extra features include:
- A new interview with Untamed Youth star Mamie Van Doren
- A new interview with Walter G. Alton, Jr., star of The Pumaman
- Original version of The Pumaman
- "The Movie That Couldn't Die"
- New introductions by Joel Hodsgon
- About Joel Hodgson's "Riffing Myself"
- The Posters Of MST3K
- Theatrical Trailers
- MST3K Artist In Residence: Steve Vance
- 4 exclusive mini-posters by artist Steve Vance

5.0 out of 5 stars PUMAMAN!!!! Dec 20 2013
By Otto Correct - Published on Amazon.com
I haven't seen the early two episodes and "The Thing That Couldn't Die" is a dreadfully dull movie (great riffing aside), but the key to this release and the reason I will so totally buy it is that it contains PUMAMAN!

"PumaMan" is one of my favorite MST eps and truly a unique entry in the cannon. There have been plenty of terrible super hero movies released over the years but I don't think MST has ever gotten to do any of them besides this gloriously inept feature!

How gloriously inept is PumaMan? Well, you know how in Superman: The Movie they used backwards projection, cables, and good camera angles to convincingly make Christopher Reeves look like he's flying? They try the same thing in PumaMan except the filmmakers don't try to match ANY backwards projection shots and apparently use only one cable attached to the back of the actors belt so the effect isn't the actor flying so much as randomly tumbling through the air, flailing wildly with his butt in the air. Or sometimes they don't use a cable at all and just have him *walk* accross the backwards projection screen. Once you see how PumaMan flies you will *never ever* forget it!

PumaMan's superhero outfit is just tan slacks, penny loafers, a black shirt with a gold sparkly mask on it and a cape the size of a medium towel tied around his neck. He wears no mask or disquise on his face whatsoever. His theme music sounds like a supermarket jingle and the soundtrack primarily plays this rousing theme on a harpsichord!

The Aztec high priest who helped PumaMan discover his powers did so by randomly throwing him out a three story window (good thing the priest didn't have too many false leads before he found this guy!). The high priest also does most of the good guy work, as PumaMan spends a good deal of his fight time goofily jumping around and not fighting the bad guys.

I could go on, but needless to say this film desperately screams for Mike and the Bots and they do an *incredible* job! One of my favorite episodes and worth the price of the box by itself. I'm so looking forward to having this one on great looking DVD transfer.

Wow !! Amazing four disc set, all are classically bad sci-fi slash fantasy movies, and the Mystery Science crew is super funny as always. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars More horrible movies made palatable April 4 2014
By Nick Pusloskie - Published on Amazon.com

I have all the box sets and several of the individual movies. Never has a program taken something so bad and make it so good. I am a big fan of MST3K

This set has a couple of particularly bad smelling additions. MST3K movies are judged by using Manos, Hands of Fate, as the benchmark for wretchedness. These movies, while bad, do not approach that (thank goodness).

The one standout is Untamed Youth. The movie, is of course, horrible. The only saving grace is that Les Baxter did the music. And even some of the songs here are pretty bad - which is unusual for him. Never heard of Les Baxter? Amazon has a collection of his. And he can be heard on Public Radio on the Retro Cocktail Hour.

Hercules and the Captive Women, The Thing That Couldn't Die and The Pumaman are only watchable in the MST3K form.

The specials in this set are pretty darn good too. I particularly like the interview with Steve Vance, who does the posters as well as a segment that shows those posters.

So, go ahead, grab this set and enjoy bad movies and funny commentary.

Another winning MST3K entry from Shout Factory. I have one left to watch and then a long wait until the next installment.
