Ugh. Hey. What’s up? Yeah, I’m still here. Had a hell of a time these past few months (which I’ll spare you the details of) but I’m hoping to slowly get back in the habit of updating Deep Ape. Needless to say, hopefully you’ve been reading Satellite News for all your MST3K needs in the interim. There’s certainly a good amount of news that I’ve missed while I was away.
One such piece of news is the announcement of yet another volume of MST3K DVDs. Man, Shout Factory is really pumping these out, aren’t they? Good on them. This 17th(!) set is pretty darn decent, with a reasonable selection of episodes and a surprisingly excellent load of extra content. Here’s the rundown of the set’s contents, as listed in the press release:
- 0101 The Crawling Eye
- The Beatniks
- The Final Sacrifice
- The Blood Waters of Dr. Z
- special Crawling Eye introduction with Joel Hodgson
- Mystery Science Theater Hour wrap segments for The Beatniks
- The Main Event: Crow vs. Crow at Dragon*Con ’09 (with Trace and Bill)
- an interview with Final Sacrifice‘s Bruce J. Mitchell (Rowsdower!)
- Blood Waters of Dr. Z photo gallery
- original theatrical trailers
- And, allegedly, “more.”
Now, that’s a nice selection of extras. And we finally get both the first (non-KTMA) episode of the series and fan favorite Final Sacrifice officially released on DVD. The set is scheduled for release on March 16th, 2010, and can be pre-ordered here.
