Ash bought me the 19th set of Mystery Science Theater 3000. This set includes Robot Monster, Bride of the Monster, Devil Doll, and Devil Fish. It also came with a plastic Gypsy toy. Unfortunately, the plastic thing is too big to set in front of the TV with Crow and Tom. I suppose that’s okay because Gypsy only came in the theater once during some horrible Hercules movie.
Monster Robot is a very early episode of MST3K. It had J. Elvis Weinstein as Servo in it, but I like Kevin Murphy better. This movie is a little hard to watch. It’s about an astronaut guerilla that terrorizes a family in the desert.
Bride of the Monster was pretty bad too. Bela Lugosi and Tor Johnson are in this movie, and they are up to no good. The best part about this episode is when Joel and the robots perform Hired: The Musical to mock the short.
Devil Doll is the best episode in the set just because Tom Servo turns into a toaster strudel with great gams! The movie is about a creepy ventriloquist who tries to seduce a young woman, but the skits between the movies are funny. I always enjoy it when Crow mettles with dark forces.
Devil Fish was hard to watch too. It’s about a skarktopus that attacks humans. In the host segments, Mike insults dolphins and electricians, which has immediate ramifications.
