MST3K Roulette at Netflix

Netflix Instant added some new MST3K episodes recently but there seems to be a malfunction: Users are reporting that when you click on one title, you actually get a different one. According to reports on Twitter:
When you select “Hamlet” you get “Touch of Satan”
when you select “Red Zone Cuba” you get “Hamlet,”
when you select “I Accuse my Parents” you get “Girl in Golden Boots,”
when you select “Touch of Satan” you get “Incredibly Strange Creatures…,”
and when you select “Incredibly Strange Creatures…” you get “Red Zone Cuba.”

Are there any more? Report them in the comments…

    Isn’t that just like technology…The more you try to advance or improve it, the more it screws up.

    Incredibly Strange Creatures… > Red Zone Cuba > Hamlet > Touch Of Satan > Incredibly Strange Creatures…

    It’s like a revolving door of poopie!


  3. Dave Ross says:

    Girl in Old Boots is actually I Accuse My Parents (they’re just switched)


  4. Stacia says:

    Looks like it goes both ways: “Girl in Gold Boots” is “I Accuse My Parents” AND vice versa.

    Like they always say at Microsoft, It’s not a bug, it’s a feature!

    I’m watching Atomic Brain now. It’s correctly labeled.


  7. PondosCP says:

    The Beginning Of The End must be from the new Shout Direct copy. The start of it is riddled with more tape hits than Lost Continent.


  8. Max Keller says:

    I Accuse My Parents In Gold Boots.


  9. YourNewBestFriend says:

    A really nice person wouldn’t even START with that…


  10. pondoscp says:

    @3: Girl In Old Boots, the never-produced sequel ;)


  11. losingmydignity says:

    If you click Manos you get the lost episode: From Hell It Came!


  12. EricJ says:

    It’s just in the new lump of Shout/reclaimed-Rhino episodes added this week, and not all of those–Beginning/End seems to be intact.

    I’d report them to Netflix, but then they’d be pulled off the catalog before I’d finished warching.
    To paraphrase Crow (in the “Dispose of your GvMegalon” PSA) I’ll do that….later. :)

    My invention exchange this week increases the pain exponentially! Not only do you get a bad movie, but you get the WRONG bad movie! Muhahahahah!


  14. snowdog says:

    Yep, “Hamlet” gives you “Touch of Satan”. At least I got to enjoy the Wassail sketch before work this morning. Now I’ll be humming that song all day. “Then severe financial penalties will come unto you. Then severe financial penalties to you.”

    I noticed this a couple days ago when I tried to watch Incredibly Strange Creatures, thanks for the “map”. So nice to have more episodes available to watch instantly, even if they are all mixed up!


  16. pondoscp says:

    The Incredibly Strange Movies Who Stopped Being In Print And Became Mixed-Up Netflix Instant Queue Selections!


  17. C. says:

    “The Girl in Gold Boots” gives you “I Accuse My Parents”.


  18. AgentMom says:

    Yup! They are all mixed up!

    I say we don’t tell netflix they goofed up and let it be our secret. Confuse the heck out of everybody! ;)


  19. Yipe Striper says:

    This seems like it is right…


  20. Dylan says:

    This whole mix up thing must be a ploy by Netflix to inflict DEEEEP HURRRTINGG DEEEEP HURRRTINGG


  21. craig says:

    I thought I was just going crazy…


  22. Cambot says:

    Mixed up Zombies = Red Zone Cuba = Hamlet

    And this is getting damn annoying…


  23. KendraD says:

    We are seeing the same thing here, too! Has anyone contacted Netflix about it yet? We are about to.
