    Los Angeles--The MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 COLLECTION continues with Volume 9, hitting DVD May 16th. How can something so awful be so much fun? That’s a riddle solved once again by the men, women, and robots of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, which turns affectionate mockery into an art form in this new collection of deliriously funny episodes from the beloved TV series. Joel, Mike, Tom Servo, Crow, and the usual gang of misfits take us on another memorable ride through four films that only the films’ mothers could love. Fasten your seatbelts. The Satellite of Love is back in action at warped speed.

    This beautiful 4-disc set includes 4, never-before-on-DVD, original TV series films and brand-new introductions from the stars of the original movies. Each film, a journey within itself, combines to equal over 375 minutes of mysterious fun.

    Any idea why MST3K is R1-only? Is this a rights clearance issue, and if so why not release it R0? There is definitely an international fanbase, and not just of expats like me; if a title isn't getting an international release I don't see the point in doing the region thing.

    I don't know where you are, but region-free DVD players are as common as hell in Europe and Australasia. Hell, you can buy them from supermarkets over here in NZ and I believe it's the same over in the UK as well.

    Thanks for the update. The only MST 3000 title I own is a movie called Beginning of the End about giant grasshoppers that destroy Ludlow, IL, a small town about 20 miles North of where I live. It is priceless entertainment.

    You may be interested to know that, of the DVDs, that's the only one which has gone out of print.
