Sequel to this post: I ended up buying vol. 6, since my local used DVD store had it. Not a bad volume. Of course, it was worth buying just for Mr. B Natural, but my favorite full episode was "Gunslinger", with "Teenagers From Outer Space" a close second in terms of laughs (and ya gotta love the Hi-Q stock music used in "Outer Space"!). "Giant Leeches" started out OK, but for me the momentum went downhill after about the halfway mark.
Yes, but it is still only 4 episodes. It's no different than 4 episodes of a normal series, because you can only watch them so much, so they aren't anymore value.Originally Posted by Classic Speedy
The next set's episodes, according to MST3Kinfo:
That'll be a great set. I love "Kitten With a Whip" and "Revenge of the Creature", and "007" I remember not being too bad either. Never seen "Robot Holocaust".110- ROBOT HOLOCAUST with short: COMMANDO CODY PT 9 (partial)
508- OPERATION KID BROTHER (aka OPERATION DOUBLE 007; they couldn’t get the rights under the other name)
615- KITTEN WITH A WHIP and
801- REVENGE OF THE CREATURE
I'm just glad they're dipping into Sci-Fi era episodes again, and the very first one from that era, at that. AND it's a Universal film. It's kind of a milestone in that sense.
Woohoo! "Operation Double 007" is one of my all time favorites! And if Shout! got "Revenge of the Creature", that opens up the possibility for a huge chunk of Season 8 - including, hopefully, "The Deadly Mantis", another one of my favorites.
Speedy, "Robot Holocaust" is widely regarded as one of the best of Season 1. And it's worth the price of admission just for the smokin' hot yet utterly incomprehensible Angelika Jager.

Looks like Shout Factory's deal with Universal (especially with the Scream Factory label) is paying off for us MiSTies, as we're getting some of the episodes featuring films released by Universal in the next set. Would love to see one of the later sets to feature either The Leech Woman (JEEEEEEEDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!), The Mole People (I'm sure the staff at the show were huge fans of the film and have wanted to riff that film for a long time), or Riding with Death (Turkey Volume Guessing Man).

All four of those films were listed as "Extremely Unlikely" because they're all owned by major studios (MGM, Warner and Universal, to be specific). This is intriguing news indeed.
Zim: "I thought the Tallest killed you."
Skoodge "Yeah, but I'm all right now."
Mad Jack the Pirate: "You were DEAD! How do you get better from being DEAD, you Scottish twit?!??"
It opens up a ton of episodes for potential release, ensuring that we have enough material for several more years of box sets!
