What are your personal Vault Picks?

If you could make your own vault picks set, what would be in it? Since this just a TV show, and we should really just relax, the Netflix era episodes are fair game.

For me, I’m thinking (in no particular order):

  • Space Mutiny
  • Cry Wilderness
  • Time Chasers
  • Secret Agent Super Dragon
  • The Day The Earth Froze
  • Ator, The Fighting Eagle

I have one of two theme sets.

One is “optiMSTie’s Favorites.” I pick two favorite episodes from each host, and the set would include:

  • The Magic Voyage of Sinbad
  • Mitchell
  • Space Mutiny
  • Jack Frost
  • Wizards of the Lost Kingdom
  • Mac and Me

(I omitted The Final Sacrifice only because the streaming rights aren’t there. Otherwise, I’d switch out Space Mutiny for The Final Sacrifice.)

For a second themed set, I’ll go:

  • Project Moonbase
  • Moon Zero Two
  • Hercules Against the Moon Men
  • Crash of Moons
  • 12 to the Moon
  • Track of the Moon Beast

The theme here, obviously, is “Good Guys Vs. Bad Guys.”

… oh, wait

I think a good theme for the month would be Actors Who Direct (aka, Directors who starred in their own films)

The six…

Robert Hutton, Slime People
Coleman Francis, Red Zone Cuba
Harold P. Warren, Manos: The Hands of Fate
Vic Savage, The Creeping Terror (played Martin)
Ray Dennis Steckler, The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!?
Charles B. Pierce, Boggy Creek II

Also considered… Tom Graeff, Teenagers from Outer Space (he played Joe Rogers in a supporting role)
