    OH. MY. GOD.
    Honestly, I did not expect more Sandy Frank titles. I’m really excited about Time of the Apes.
    And I’ve always wanted to see The Violent Years.
    Mighty Jack is a bizarre fever dream that I cannot remember mere seconds after watching it. So…endless rewatching?

    Pretty impressive..2 more Sandy Frank titles,too! Violent Years is another one of my favorites.Glad they got Brute Man.All they need is to get the remaining 3 titles from Season 7 and that will out of the way..Wish they would get some Season 4 titles,but that could be for the next set..Thanks Shout!!

    I fully expect Fugitive Alien 1 & 2 to be on the next set or *in the not too distant future* hee hee
    Getting the last of Season 7 , while nothing is impossible, will be tough since
    #703 Disney owns the Deathstalker III movie ( at least the last time I checked, but Shout is releasing a couple Deathstalker movies so you never know)
    #704 MGM owns the Incredible Melting Man – and is an MOD title
    #705 Escape from the Bronx could happen
    Sadly not every episode will make it to DVD but I think a majority from each season is a given..
    With Shout anything is possible..well not with the AIP titles or the Season 8 Universals…at least at this point

    NO WAY!!!!! TIME OF THE APES AND MIGHTY JACK???? THAT’S EXCELLENT! Grin Did a North American company buy the American rights from Tsuburaya Productions, or did they license them directly from them or what? Personally “Mighty Jack” is not one of my fave Sandy Frank episodes, but it’s got some good riffs here and there and it’s excellent to see more Sandy Frank films come on the set. Also glad to see Violent Years come; I’ve been waiting for that one for awhile. I also figured Brute Man would come soon too.

This has been a great year (probably the best year) for MST3k box sets–because there have been some great strides made in acquiring the rights of episodes we never though would see the light of day! Well done, Shout! Now… here’s to hoping these episodes are not in horrible shape like Lost Continent and Beast of Yucca Flats. *fingers crossed*

    Anyone else stoked about the other two rereleases announced? Red Zone Cuba was my first MST I ever purchased on VHS….it holds a very special place in my heart Grin

    IIRC Sandy Frank no longer owns the rights to the films he distributed that were shown on MST3K, so Shout! has been negotiating with the Japanese studios that own the films, not Frank. He doesn’t get a say in these releases at all.

    Well, I have to be honest, I expect to give this one a pass. But that has a lot to do with the fact that I have every ep I care about, anyway. And the titles I’d like to see on an official set are mostly locked up by rights issues.

I can only hope they re-edit the green screen with a original master copy vs a print copy which probably what was given to sandy frank [who not even on the list of greatest Franks]. Anything touched by Ed Wood is gold! The brute man and mighty jack don’t get much tv time, in fact I think I have only seen the brute man once or twice. It’s going to be nice to reintroduce myself to those two titles.

    #38–I’m not sure Roger Corman owns the rights to his early works. Some were done for Allied Artists and the other early stuff was sold to AIP. He had an arrangement with AIP until they tampered with “The Trip” in 1967. That pissed him off.

    As a mathematical note, this set’s release will mean seasons 3, 6, and 7 will all be at or beyond 50% released (3 will actually make it to 54% having 13 out of 24, the other two at 50% at 12 of 24 and 3 of 6 respectively), leaving only seasons 8 and 9 below 50% (both of which can get there with release of Horror of Party Beach, Invasion of the Neptune Men, and, say, Quest of the Delta Knights or The Screaming Skull or Puma Man if they ever find the rights holders). 98 of 176 non-KTMA episodes have been released on DVD (counting Godzilla vs. Megalon’s abbreviated release), or about 56%.

    That said, hey, more Japanese fun, and more Ed Wood! And the Brute Man!

    Disco #53 – Good research. I track DVD percentages on my site (just click GizmonicTemp above Grin ) and I’m perplexed as to why so few episodes from Season 8 have been released. I mean, I understand that Sci-Fi could have helped Mst3k get rights to some of the movies they did in that season, but it is the MOST popular season among Msties. Gimmee some Prince of Space and Riding With Death!!

    Oh hell yes!! Shout! has done it again by getting the rights to
    some of the Japanese episodes from Season 3, the same company
    that owns Time of the Apes and Mighty Jack also owns
    Fugitive Alien I and II, so we may see those two in set next
    year like they did with the Master Ninja’s. This is very exciting!

    I enjoyed Time of the Apes, while The Violent Years is one of my favorite episodes.
    I’m really looking foward to having a nice DVD quality copy of that one
    to replace the copy I downloaded from the Digital Archive Project.
    I have not seen Mighty Jack or Brute Man before so I’ll be happy to finally give them a look.

    Season 8 has its moments, but I’d hardly say it’s the most popular. Looking at the last Rhino poll, if we look at it in terms of number of episodes total versus number of episodes with high placements on the list, then season 9 probably edges it out.

    But popularity isn’t all that important at this point as, when all is said and done, the real reason season 8 isn’t going to be often represented is that there are only a few episodes left that Shout can get their hands on without having to deal with Universal.

    Time is my fav episode. I haven’t been this happy about some MST3K since I finally got a satellite hookup and could watch Sci-Fi Channel and MST3K again after it joined them from CC.

    Now maybe somebody will DVD Time of the Apes as a movie only deal. The original TV series would be a trip and a half too. Any old Japanese shows (Spectreman, Johnny Sokko, anybody?) would be something I’d buy.

    There’s a lot to be excited about here, but I’m really happy to see “Young Man’s Fancy” coming to DVD. (I’m not sure if it was on the previous Shorts releases.) It’s one of my favorite shorts, along with “Design for Dreaming”.
    I’m already getting squishy.

    #60 – People can vote in your poll without having seen the whole series, so it’s possible (and likely, I think) that season 8 is the most popular season among people who are only fans of the Sci-Fi episodes. That doesn’t say anything about fans of the whole series.

    The last time I saw #702 The Brute Man was in 1996 when it first aired in Comedy Central ( oh memories ), I never saw The Violent Years #610 ep. To >>GizmonicTemp : The reason why we don’t have too many season 8 eps is because Best Brains used Sci-Fi’s library of old Sci-Fi movies which were owned by Univeral. Univeral owns the rights, and it is difficult even for Shout to get the rights of those eps. Prince of Space was easy to release ( by Rhino 2005 ) because it was owned by an old Japanese movie company which is probably defunct ( I could be wrong, unless if someone else has a better answer on how Prince of Space got released? ).

    The Violent Years = easily in my top 5 Mike episodes….2nd favorite short ever (behind Mr B)

    Mighty Jack = Sandy Frank! Please, please, please tell me this means Fugitive Alien I and II!

    Brute Man = my least favorite of the bunch and it’s still a very good episode.

    I’m in MSTie heaven:
    Master Ninja I and II are my favorite episodes ever. I bought 2 sets (as promised) when Shout delivered there.

    Gamera!

    Looks like they will neve get any of the old ‘Universal’ movies – great episodes we will probably never have ‘official’ dvds of.
    Riding With Death heads the list, but there are a lot of good ones like Deadly Mantis, The Mole People, and on and on.

    Well we always have Skyroniter.

    Personally I prefer my old tapes anyway because of the poorly audible movies in the soundmix by Shout.

    Glad to see Time Of The Apes getting a release. And, like others, it leaves me more optimistic that the Fugitive Alien episodes will follow along.

    Rocketship X-M is one I’d love to see in a future release, but (assuming they could clear them at the same time) how about Rocket Attack USA and Invasion USA? A nice Cold War double-whammy.

    All I can say is Shout Factory’s been kicking some butt in getting episodes released.

    It’s high time Time of the Apes got a DVD release; it’s always been one of my favorites. But I’m even more excited about Mighty Jack. That’s the one with the sketch wherein Joel says, “You know, I’m weird and that results in creativity!” while re-enacting the aquatic battle scenes from the stupid movie with a tank of water and assorted toys.

    The only one I don’t care about is The Brute Man, because I don’t remember it at all but know I saw it when it first aired. Is that another Coleman Francis movie? Too painful.

    @Euphoriafish:

    Not a Coleman Francis, but it is dreary in it’s own way. The movie is pretty well made, but boring. I like the episode more for the host segments, especially the first one with Paul Chaplin as Sandy, Pearl’s date. It’s comedy gold.

    Mike in Portland #65 – I agree with you that there are likely more fans of the later Mst3k years than the earlier, which only reinforces the poll results that Season 8 is the most popular. If you have one person who likes season 8 the best and has seen ONLY season 8 shows and you have another person who likes season 8 the best but they have seen the entire series, you still have two people who will be more likely to purchase a set that features season 8 episodes.

    As far as my poll is concerned, yes, it would be nice if every voter submitted a complete list so that I could get a more accurate quantitative contrast between seasons, but it just don’t work that way. I figured, if you like a show, you voted for it and if you don’t like it, you didn’t include it.

    Haha! The next time I go to a football game, I should yell, “I want the Chiefs to win more than the Chargers, but the Chargers can win more than the Raiders. Yeah!!” Smile

    I think this compilation is the weakest to be released by Shout Factory. Don’t get me wrong, I think they’ve done a tremendous job since taking over from Rhino, and all their previous compilations have been strong. But I won’t be rushing out to get this set, because they’re four of the least memorable episodes in MST3K history. I expect a compilation will have one or two dogs from time to time, but those are usually off-set by the other, stronger episodes in the set. Not this time. Time of the Apes was mildly amusing, while Mighty Jack was so bad even the Brains couldn’t make a good go of it. The Violent Years is the lamest of the Ed Wood trilogy (Bride of the Monster and The Sinister Urge were considerably better), though it does have some very funny riffs, and the short “Young Man’s Fancy” is one of the best they ever riffed. “The Brute Man”, like “The Violent Years”, is overshadowed by a wonderful short, in this case, “Chicken of Tomorrow”. Both shorts are part of the Rhino “Shorts” collection, so I have no reason to purchase this particular set. Sorry, Shout Factory, I’m passing on this one. Look forward to the future releases!

    @ # 107: I actually asked about the “Turn Down Your Lights Where Applicable” intro on the Shout! forum once because I also enjoyed that atmospheric and humorous little setup yet it hasn’t appeared on any DVD releases. Brian Ward said it was because it was never included on the master tapes, but that he would try to include it on future releases. You may wish to remind Shout! about it by also requesting it politely over on their MST3K Community Forum.

    Love this compilation. Time of the Apes, Brute Man, and especially The Violent Years are all favorites of mine. For some reason I can’t recall much about Mighty Jack, despite trying to watch it many times. It may be funny, but that movie causes instant amnesia, probably as a defense mechanism. I hope that the MST hour bumpers will be included again. Those should be for any movie they exist for. I can never get enough of Mike doing his Jack Perkins character.

    @106 – to each their own, but Time of the Apes “unmemorable”? To me it’s a key MST3K episode, and although it does get a bit dreary and plodding toward the end, there are enough iconic MST3K moments in it to make it essential viewing for new fans. The very fact that it’s immediately identifiable as an obvious Planet of the Apes rip-off has made it very, very memorable to even casual fans over the years. I know there are lots of people who dislike this episode, I’m just arguing that it’s an important one nonetheless.

    Good call about “Young Man’s Fancy”, as it doesn’t appear in any of the Rhino shorts collections. If Shout Factory sells “The Violent Years” episode as a single (as they’ve done with several others), then I might plunk down the coinage for that, as it’ll be considerably cheaper than buying this compilation. Doesn’t change my opinion of the episodes in this set. Still, a bad MST3K episode is better than most of the dreck on TV today. I’ll keep my old video copies (which I’ve since burned to DVD), plus Netflix also has the Shout Factory MST3K releases, so I can watch those when they become available if I choose.

    Try going to the Reference Librarian and requesting it via Inter-Library Loan. Some libraries are reluctant to ship their DVDs, but others are more understanding. It’s worth a shot.

    I work for a public library and, thanks to public interest and my nagging, we’ve stocked a good amount of MST titles, including the original release of Rhino’s vol. 10 with “mumblemumblemumble vs. mumblemumblemumble”. I’ll see if we can pony up the money for this one.

    @Spector… When has Shout ever sold single discs of any episodes from their four disc sets? The only single DVDs they’ve ever released are episodes that were previously released by Rhino. They’ve never released any single discs of episodes from their new four disc sets like this. Sorry, but if you want that copy of The Violent Years DVD it looks like you’ll have to buy this set.

    Also might I add that if you really think these are “four of the least memorable episodes” then you are insane. I don’t care whether you personally like them or not, but “unmemorable” cannot reasonably be used to describe them, at least not “time of the Apes” or “Mighty Jack”. They are two of the MOST memorable/well remembered episodes of the Joel era by many MST fans.

    And on top of that those two episodes alone are reason enough for any MST fan to rejoice about this set. Until now no one thought that “Time of the Apes” or “Mighty Jack” (or any of the Sandy Frank episodes) were ever going to get an official release, so having them coming directly on the heels of ALL FIVE Gamera movies is a triumph for Shout and all MST fans. It actually gives us real reason to believe that anything is possible for future MST DVD sets, and EVERYONE, including people like you who don’t personally like those episodes, should at least recognize the significance of that.

    Violent Years is also a lot of fun

    Heh, I was thinking earlier today after buying Vol. 21 , “What Japanese Movie based episodes are left to release”? So I guess after the announcement for Vol. 22. , we still need.
    “ Lizard” vs. “Lobster” with cameo by “ Lepidoptera.
    A re-issue of The Lizard and the Robot fight Asian Long Horn Beetle and Buzz the wonder space chicken
    Fugitive Alien 1 and 2
    Invasion of the Neptune Men

    Kind of a pity that Shout Factory did get the rights to “The Lizard and the Robot fight Asian Long Horn Beetle and Buzz the wonder space chicken” instead of Tokyo Shock.

    On a different note, It’d be interesting if some time in the future they released a box set containing:
    Rocket ship X-M
    Fire Maidens from outer Space
    Last of the Wild Horses
    Samson vs. the Vampire Women
    With possibly a TV’s Frank figure with or with out Timmy.

    @110: “Alphabet Antics” never made an appearance on a shorts comp either, same goes for for “Robot Rumpus” though perhaps that’s a rights issue.

    And like almost everyone else, I am delighted with the next set (hell, I’m delighted with ANY set). Even if a DVD is released of an episode I wasn’t crazy about the first time, I watch it anyway. Along the way, I’ve discovered that there are a lot of episodes I dismissed the first go-round that I quite enjoyed on a subsequent viewing (“Giant Gila Monster” comes to mind). If anything else, it’s nice to be able to jettison my old tapes and have a crisp, clean digital copy in my collection (I give my old tapes to a friend of mine who takes good care of them).

    Thanks again to Shout! for treating MST3K, and it’s fans, with some respect and dignity — and keep those sets coming.

    Don’t know if this is a place for this, but…. My wish lists for the upcoming sets:

    Season One: Not that I’d prefer more Season One episodes but ROBOT HOLOCAUST and MOON ZERO TWO are the most watchable of the remaining 5 options

    Season Two: ROCKETSHIP XM is a milestone episode, if not the most exciting movie. JUNGLE GODDESS and KING DINOSAUR are also early favs, although would be willing to hold off on the latter for a MST3K VS. MR. B.I.G. box set.

    Season Three: FUGITIVE ALIEN & STAR FORCE: FUGITIVE ALIEN II. A MST3K VS. CORMAN box set (with 311, 315, 317, & 806) would be nice.

    Season Four: THE ATTACK OF THE THE EYE CREATURES is one of my favorite episodes of all time. FIRE MAIDENS OF OUTER SPACE an interesting and unique episode.

    Season Five: VILLAGE OF THE GIANTS is one of my favs, and I would love ALIEN FROM L.A., OUTLAW, or TEENAGE CRIMEWAVE.

    Season Six: THE LAST OF THE WILD HORSES is an important episode I can’t believe isn’t on DVD yet. The movie is, like, 100 years old, how much could the rights be!? SAMSON VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMEN is another all time fav and important (would like to see that on a set with ROCKETSHIP XM). Also love THE SWORD & THE DRAGON and HIGH SCHOOL BIG SHOT.

    Season Seven: Any and all of these. I love this season.

    Season Eight: Would be great if they could do box sets for 801-804 (hosted by Bobo and Peanut) & 805-808 (hosted by The Observers). Also love RIDING WITH DEATH, THE HORROR OF PARTY BEACH.

    Season Nine: PUMA-MAN. THE QUEST OF THE DELTA KNIGHTS.

    Season Ten: DIABOLIK!!! Love SQUIRM too!

    I still don’t know what Mighty Jack was supposed to be. I have half the episode on an old tape I found and it’s a funny episode with a bunch of crazy characters and an maybe hating on the Europe folk. Wasn’t the villian Italian or something. They had warm ice or something. A giant Iceberg Island. “We’re informal here at Mighty Jack.” OFcourse the dubbing. “I take this up with Colonel Yubuki.” That’s funny in itself. Mr. Atari? I’m pretty sure that’s not an actual name and he didn’t invent Pong.

    Time of the Apes. What can you say about a Planet of the Apes inspired film that has masks worse than the afformentioned film. Plus a UFO flying around and the Joshua Light Show?

    Cronkite Moonshot: Just because I don’t particularly care for those episodes doesn’t make me “insane”. That criticism is a tad extreme, don’t you think? In my humble opinion, they were unmemorable. Others, of course, obviously believe otherwise. That’s cool, I don’t expect everyone to agree. I don’t think they’re “insane” if their opinion differs from mine. I don’t consider you “insane” for disagreeing with me. I just think your response to my criticism is a bit over the top. So the Sandy Frank episodes are finally being commercially released. That’s great for those who were fans of those episodes. Some of them I liked, some of them I didn’t. No big whoop. I’m merely stating my opinion, just like everyone else, and I didn’t denigrate the episodes or those who enjoyed them.

    As for those individual episodes released by Shout Factory, you’re right, but again, they’re now showing individual MST3K episodes released by Shout Factory on Netflix, so I’ll simply have to wait and then I can watch it as many times as I like, without having to plunk down the coin for a box set of what I consider a weak compilation. Plus, I still have the copy I taped years ago (which I’ve since burned to DVD).

    I think we can disagree without stooping to epithets.

    On a side note, has anyone else noticed that some Netflix streaming episodes have the Turn Your Lights Down intros, while the DVDs of the same episodes don’t have them? I’ve always thought that was strange. Good to hear the Gamera set has them.
    And great job Shout! Keep cranking out these awesome releases! I’ll take any episode you’ve got, but I really buy them for the extras! Love me some new extras! (And episode upgrades too!)

    Regarding Universal – right now they are making $0 in conjunction with MST3K. Why would they not compromise a little or be more reasonable in order to make $? Is the problem that they want too much $, or something else? MST3K pretty much only does stinky movies, so I don’t see how it could ‘ruin’ the reputation of the movies. If anything it will help them sell the un-Mystied versions.

    My other guess – it may be hard to track down the rights owners?

    Not sure whether MGM still owns Golan/Globus, but whoever does would handle Alien From LA and Outlaw.

    (And anyone else sense that Shout has gotten the Gamera “theme-set” kick, and has been gearing their sets for pairs of two-title “motifs”?

I live in Fort Smith,Arkansas and they’ve never performed here or in Little Rock or even Tulsa,but yet I still buy their dvd’s.And,how can she afford to buy their dvd’s if she has no job? In the past I’ve given advice to her about her looking for a job first,then worry about seeing CT later until she has the money to go,but that didn’t work.

    Captain Cab:

    I could get behind your first post a little bit, but you really are just being a jerk about it now. I come to this forum to revel in something I truly love and care about, and in doing so, also care about the other people that post on here as well, not to see people gang up on one of their own. Just because you’re being “diplomatic” in your comments doesn’t mean your not just being a dickweed.

    Shout Factory seems to have no trouble getting episodes to release. Makes me suspect that Rhino’s real problem was that they are CHEAP.

    It seems too that Shout Factory is just more dedicated. I don’t really want to call Rhino lazy, but it sure seems that Shout has already (and continues) to release episodes that according to what I’d seen, were considered slim-to-never releases. Fingers crossed they keep it up!

    Question for Travis: Is there a chance that Shout! would do a US-only release for the “Lippert” films? Seems a shame to let problems with the Canadian rights keep so many episodes out of our hands…..

    Many thanks for all the work you’ve done on that list. Looks like I need to update my spreadsheet again….I like to sort them by likelihood of release, so I can guess how many new sets we might see in the future..

    Oh, cry me a river, Cabbage Patch Elvis. Don’t make me put your squishy greasy noggin into that Arch Hall Jr face simulator Crow and Tom crammed Joel’s face into. The tone of my posts were just fine considering how annoying it is to read said posts I mentioned ad nauseum with no variation from a poster who won’t even listen to suggestions others offer her! That’s where I draw the line. Anyways, my steam has been let off, I’m done.

    lol It was just a sarcastic joke and a tribute to one of the greatest Joel era skits ever, grow up.

    Anyways, here’s another vote hoping they can get both Fugitive Alien eps next time.

    Laura–

    I have spoken to you privately on several occasions about letting your temper get the better of you in the comments. I have explained to you repeatedly that you are welcome to argue the issues but you may not attack other commenters. I have expressed my own sympathy (as have others here, including people you have attacked) with the fact that you are geographically, automotively and financially challenged. I have asked you, repeatedly, NOT to be the skunk at the picnic.

    You continue to attack people as if I had said nothing. So, since private messages don’t seem to work, here’s a public one:

    THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING. YOU WILL NOT BE GIVEN ANOTHER CHANCE. YOU WILL BE CORDIAL IN THE COMMENT THREAD OR YOU WILL BANNED WITHOUT WARNING OR EXPLANATION.

    I’m kinda hungry, GizmonicTemp,
    But I already had breakfast and have to get on stage tonight, so gotta wait to eat until it’s actually lunch time.

    What did you have?

    GizmonicTemp – I am indeed jealous of you and your Big Biscuit breakfast. I’m not familiar with the place, but the name itself is quite tempting. Sadly, I have squandered any time I might have used to get breakfast by typing this. Now I’m sad and hungry… Cry

    Chuck #172 – Stage? Cool! Music? Theater? Other?

    Cabbage Patch Elvis – Three locations around Kansas City, so I guess it’s a chain, but it definitely has a “greasy spoon” feel with a leaky roof, terrible parking lot, waitresses that will run to your car with an umbrella if it’s raining, and great food. Yes Even in these hard economic times, their pancakes remain freakin’ huge, unlike IHOP’s that are shrinking every day.

    Chuck #172 – I forgot to answer your question. The Big Breakfast: two pancakes, two sausage patties, two bacon strips, fried potatoes (crispy brown on the outside, but soft on the inside, YUM!), two eggs (scrambled with Louisiana Hot Sauce), coffee.

    Doggy bag? Heck no!

    GizmonicTemp #174 – nothing so noble, actually. I’m hosting a horror movie showing at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, PA tonight. Tonight’s movie is “The Fog”, the John Carpenter classic.

    Just want to look good for all the lovely peoples who come out.

    What’s “Louisiana Hot Sauce” with regards to other types of hot sauce? Is it Bold?

    Gizmonic Temp – Sounds awesome. Out where I live in Oregon, we just don’t have that kind of place. We do have Pine State Biscuits in Portland though. My favorite is a biscuit sandwich called the Reggie Deluxe: Fresh biscuit with bacon, egg, country gravy and a piece of fried chicken. My stomach usually hates me for it afterword, but it’s worth it.

    I know it’s mostly a regional thing around Pennsylvania, but anyone else out there love the hell out of scrapple? Sliced thing, fried till it’s crispy on the outside and still soft on the inside. Slap some ketchup on that bad boy and you’ve got the second best breakfast meat.

    Chuck #177 – Still, you’re very important tonight, and movie-nights out are always awesome!

    Well, hell yes it’s bold! Pissed Off “Louisiana Hot Sauce” is not as hot and much more tomato-ish than “McIlhenny’s Tabasco Sauce”. “Cholula Original” (found at my local IHOP) is also really good. Now, if I can just get breakfast places to provide chipotle sauce, then I’ll be in breakfast heaven!

    Wow, so many responses to my completely random breakfast topic proves that it really is the most important meal of the day!

    You know, I’ve always said that chipotle is the key to the lock that is world piece.

    Say, what’s with this stuff not being bold?

    The problem is, and Shout has mentioned this before, the Mst3k boxsets sell very well in both U.S. and Canada. So if it’s just sold in the U.S., Shout will not make enough money most likely, and Canada will become very jealous. Can’t always get what you want, but it’s true.
