MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: VOLUME XXXVII REVIEWED

“Mystery Science Theater” returns with its 37th volume. While the four films are typical of MST3K fare, Escape 2000 and Invasion of the Neptune Men feels different. The Italian Grindhouse ties of the first film and Sonny Chiba being in the second film make the material far more mainstream. Outside of that, it’s typical for the MST3K experience. The robots poke fun at easy targets and Joel gets to direct the laughs. Every nerd wins.

But, I’m one of those other kind of nerds. I don’t want to make fun of Invasion of the Neptune Men. I want to learn about its history. Some of the SJWs might take issue poking fun at the Asian origins of that film. For a series to run this long, one wonders when the fun will end. That’s why we need Season Sets. I like chronological order.
