Your Ideal MST3K DVD Volume

Here’s a bit of a spin on the classic question of what your favorite episodes are. Let’s say you were working for Rhino or Shout! Factory. You have the rights to all the movies that MST3K ever riffed, and you could put whatever episodes you want on a DVD set. What episodes would you choose? The limitation here is you can only choose four episodes, ideally two Joel and two Mike episodes. You could also try picking one episode from each era. Like one Josh episode, one Joel/Kevin episode, one Mike/Trace episode, and one Bill episode.

Or for a little bonus challenge, you could include a fifth episode on the DVD set BUT it has to be a Jonah episode. What episodes do you choose?

Here’s an example DVD set.
111 - Moon Zero Two
423 - Bride of the Monster
521 - Santa Claus
912 - The Screaming Skull

And as a bonus, I’ll include the Jonah episode, 1104 - Avalanche.


There’s only one box set anyone needs if all the rights have been secured: The Complete Series. But, within your rules, the first box set is episode 1-4, then 5-8, and so on. :sunglasses:


The rest of the missing episodes for Vol. 40 would be great

You guys are no fun.


OK, if i was making a disk:

303 Pod People
404 Teenagers from Outer Space
417 Manhunt in Space
910 The Final Sacrifice
Bonus Feature: Hired Parts 1&2

Johan episode toss in…
1204 The Day Time Ended

Why this selection… why not, it’s my disk, I’ll do what I want.


111 Moon Zero Two
512 Mitchell
703 Death Stalker & The warriors From Hell
820 Space Mutiny

Straight class, right down the line.

Bonus Jonah Episode: Starcrash


It’s a MST mix-tape!

I like @Editor’s. Prolly not gonna top that unless maybe…swap out “Manhunt” with “Laserblast”.


I’d want to give it some Russo-Finnish flair!

422 - The Day the Earth Froze
505 - The Magic Voyage of Sinbad
617 - The Sword and the Dragon
813 - Jack Frost

Incidentally, that’s a 50/50 split on Joel and Mike episodes, so that’s ideal for me.

Throw in something wonderfully surreal for Jonah: 1204 - The Day Time Ended!
