I LOVE those Season 6 episodes, as that's when I discovered the show: late in the Season 6 season (yeah, I know, kind of late to discover it by that point, with it going off Comedy Central a year later). "Samson vs. the Vampire Women" was one of the few I remember watching when it premiered. "The Sword and the Dragon" I caught in a rebroadcast - I didn't know it was part of a trilogy, what are the other episodes in that trilogy?Originally Posted by TnAdct1
The last few episodes of Season 6, all of the short lived Season 7, and maybe about half of the episodes of the Season 8 "Sci-Fi era", those are the only ones I ever watched "live" when they premiered. But then I went off to college and lost track of the show. But thank goodness for these DVD's (and for the streaming broadcasts on Netflix and Amazon)!
Speaking of which, I've updated the list of Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes that are available for streaming. Netflix is truly disappointing me: they removed the Gamera episodes from Vol. XXI, along with Vol. XII. It seems that the episodes get removed from Netflix after a while. But possibly after they leave Netflix, they eventually go over to Amazon: I noticed Amazon has the two "Master Ninja" films from Vol. XX.
I prefer to buy the streaming episodes from Amazon, over watching them temporarily on Netflix. The one thing I notice Netflix has going for them is they have the rights for streaming for the individual re-releases ("Hamlet", "Red Zone Cuba", "The Atomic Brain", "The Incredibly Strange Creatures", etc). Amazon doesn't have those yet. But then I'd rather just buy the individual re-released DVD (because what if Netflix removes those in a few months as well?)
