    VOLUME 11 UPDATE
    Our source at Rhino Home Video tells us the release date for The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection: Volume 11 has been pushed back slightly. It is now tentatively due out on May 15. There is still no word on which episodes will be included.

    From mst3kinfo.com


    I say, at least it's coming! And I'll be broke until then anway. Sure wish they tell us what we'll all be buying...

    Awesome lineup! I don't even remember Ring of Terror. I'm always up for one I don't remember anything about.

    Now, Tormented is one of the best ever IMHO. Think Screaming Skull, only better.

    I'm always quoting that Undersea Kingdom (if it's the one I"m thinking of). "He's having an episode!!" [​IMG]

    Horrors of Spider Island may be the hottest episode ever! Lots of yumminess there. The leg crossing bit from the movie and with Mike is a classic.

    And my God at the extras! Wow. Just wow.

    Great great news! Thanks Roni. [​IMG]

    The line-up is a little disappointing to me personally, but I'm glad that this is finally coming out. And the mention of future volumes and intriguing extras is good news. It seems like these are all public domain titles, which should prevent legal troubles.

    I'm definately the opposite. I feel like 9, 10 and now 11 include a wide range from the show's long history. I'm estatic! I actually hope they keep doing it this way, instead of all Joel or all Mike or all TV's Frank.... Can't wait to get my hands on this one.

    With Beginning of the End in limbo and Amazing Colossal Man yanked back in the days of VHS, I didn't think we'd ever see another Bert I. Gordon movie released!
    Horrors of Spider Island is one episode I thought they were actually watching a bootleg tape, it looks that bad! Although that somehow adds to the experience. [​IMG]

    Two more news items from MST3K Info -

    -----------------------
    * First, some mildly bad news: Volume 11's release date has been moved
    back to June 26.
    * Now, some better news: The rights have been renegotiated, and Volume
    1 should be back on store shelves soon.

    Awesome. I already have Vol 1 but that's good news for people who don't and hope for any other sets that have dropped out (hello 9 and 10).

    I have to admit, I'm one person who says "yay" to a June release. Tough to wait, but at least by then I'll probably be able to pick up Vols 6, 7 & 8 I don't have yet.

    I'm looking forward to the Bert I Gordon extra. I'm thinking Empire of the Ants from Gordon would've been a super episode if they'd used it. All the American International stuff I can't understand why they didnt' get to that one or Reptilicus. Perhaps they could do a Rifftrax of those if Bert says "ok". [​IMG]

    I was just watching "Ring of Terror" and noticed a odd edit at 55:54. The screen goes suddenly black and silent, then fades back up to the next scene. Is that how it originally was broadcast?

    During the CC years, commercial breaks at the hour mark did not have bumps or host segments. They just went to commercial and back again just as you described.

    Still, it seems like a very abrupt edit. I haven't seen anything similar on other CC era shows I've been watching (and I've been watching a lot of my VHS tapes lately.)

    I'm pretty sure it's normal since I've seen that on other MST3K episodes before. My guess is that they had to do that occasionally to fit the show into its running time (like if a segment ran long or they had a joke they didn't like).

    You're best bet is to check out http://www.mst3kinfo.com If there's a problem, they'll know.

    A lot of MST3K movies are truncated for various reasons. The most likely culprit is the prints they got ("Mitchell," for example, was the television version which cut out half an hour of footage) or if there was 'objectionable material' (rape, for example, in various films).
