Mystery Science Theater 3000:Vol. XXXII

Four DVD Box Set Features Previously Unreleased Episodes
Space Travelers, Hercules, Radar Secret Service and San
Francisco International

For spring break this year, skip the boring ocean cruise and instead set sail with Joel, Mike and the bots on a madcap journey aboard the Satellite of Love! On March 24th, 2015, Shout! Factory will release Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXII, featuring four never before on DVD episodes Space Travelers, Hercules, Radar Secret Service and San Francisco International. The DVD box set is also filled with bonus features, including brand new episode introductions by Frank Conniff, new featurettes Barnum Of Baltimore: The Early Films Of Joseph E. Levine; Marooned: A Forgotten Odyssey; Sampo Speaks! A Brief History Of Satellite News and MST-UK with Trace and Frank; as well as theatrical trailers and four exclusive Mini Posters by artist Steve Vance!

Fans who order this title from ShoutFactory.com will receive free standard shipping to US and Canada, with their copies shipping three weeks before street date. Pre-orders can be placed at ShoutFactory.com

They were four total strangers, with nothing in common, except themselves.   A space drama, a sword and sandals epic, a ‘50s spy film and a TV pilot about an airport. Before the experiment was over, they broke the rules and made us cringe in ways we never dreamed possible. In this 32nd collection of episodes from the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, Joel, Mike, Tom Servo and Crow spend detention aboard the Satellite of Love with a breakfast club of cheesy movies. To our everlasting good fortune, though, they endure the punishment by delivering a steady stream of wisecracks, and it’s definitely some kind of wonderful. 

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Vol. XXXII gives us Radar Secret Service, an atomic age bomb of a spy thriller from Sam Newfield and Robert Lippert that features G-Men tracking stolen Uranium ore using radar and an even stealthier weapon — an undercover blonde! Space Travelers, a dramatic, Academy-Award© winning (really!) tale of about astronauts trapped in space that stars Gene Hackman, Richard Crenna, Gregory Peck and Lee Grant; Hercules, the first of the score of Italian Hercules movies, starring Steve Reeves as the legendary strongman who helps Jason retrieve the Golden Fleece and reclaim his rightful throne from his scheming uncle; and San Francisco International, a made for TV movie / backdoor pilot that never got off the ground. Pernell Roberts leads a respectable cast in this “day in the life” story of an airport and its maverick chief of security.

Bonus Features Include:
New Introductions By Frank Conniff
Barnum Of Baltimore: The Early Films Of Joseph E. Levine
Marooned: A Forgotten Odyssey
Sampo Speaks! A Brief History Of Satellite News
MST-UK with Trace and Frank
Theatrical Trailers
4 Exclusive Mini-Posters By Artist Steve Vance

    Will Satellite News have a link for ordering from Shout! Factory? I wouldn’t want to order the new set without the site getting whatever credit it gets from us fans using those links.

    I like those extras. Will Frank do intros to all 4 movies? The Herc movie that started it all. Btw, could they get and
    play the song that accompanied a lot of those gladiatorish movies when they ran in the ’80s or 90s (and that’s the
    1980s, Tom.

    You know “The mighty sons of Hercules
    Once thundered through the years,
    These men of steel could never feel
    The curse of a coward’s fears.

    The Mighty Sons of Hercules
    Were men as men should be
    They burned with dreams
    And turned their dreams into history.

    A hundred giants, brave and bold
    They ruled the world in days of old.”

    Space Travelers is one of my absolute favorite episodes and is underrated in my opinion. Also San Francisco International with a smug “My way” Pernell? Uh….”Out of sight” as that groovy young hippie was known to say to Clu Gallagher. Can’t wait to see the Frank intros and Sampo feature.

    I see no mention MST Hour intros for Space Travelers. Hopefully just a minor oversite. Also, any intros from episodes already released (i.e. The Unearthly or any Rhino release) can be put on any future release as far as I concerned.

    ^Seconded, dude. If anyone from Shout! is reading this (and we KNOW you’re out there…), please make sure the MST Hour segments are not forgotten! If its not on this set because the disks are beyond the editing point, please put them on future disks! We don’t mind! Really!

    And Sampo Speaks?! Well THAT rocks! That’s now my most anticipated bonus feature for this set! Congrats indeed, Sampo! :-D

    And ck… I just heard that song a few months ago playing during the credits of “The Devil of the Desert Against the Son of Hercules” (I BELIEVE that’s the title…) and I thought it was awesome! :giggle: I’m considering buying the movie just for that song… is that wrong? ;-)

    Darn, now I HAVE to get this one just for Hercules. If it was just Marooned, San Francisco and Radar, I could have overlooked it.
    (Already found the listing on Amazon before the announcement, and thought I missed it.)

    Did any of the space travelers ever consider using RADAR to help them get out of their predicament? Just wondering.

    Actually looking forward to Radar Secret Service, because I have a soft spot for the flicks that are so stultifying they cause a psychotic break on the SOL.

    Also curious about the “MST-UK” bonus. I know that the show wasn’t well know there until much later (I had a Welsh friend who visited the States during the Sci-Fi run and was stunned by it).
    Any UK posters here who can tell us if, or when the show aired there?

    The show aired in the UK in 1998, but only showed season 8 and season 9 episodes.

    I have been waiting for “San Francisco International” for years. YEARS.

    Calling Radar Secret Service a “spy thriller” is comedy of the highest degree.

    MST-UK is most likely about Trace and Frank’s recent UK visit for an all-night MST marathon. My guess, anyway

    I suppose it is a bit late to get in touch with Clu Gulager and Tab Hunter to interview them about San Francisco Int’l as a special feature?
