Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIII

'XXIII' marks the spot for laughs.


Television series

Rod Lott
Fans won't need much convincing (if at all) to plunk down their choice of currency for a purchase of Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIII (that's "23," dummies), because by now, Shout! Factory's rep for packing these boxes with genuine care and irresistible extras is rock-solid.

The Killing: The Complete First Season

Not since Laura Palmer has a televised corpse been this captivating.

Who killed Rosie Larsen? No, seriously, who killed Rosie Larsen?

It’s a TV-on-DVD summer spectacular!

Featuring five shows worth the purchase ... and two that aren't.


Television series

Rod Lott
I don’t watch a ton of TV shows while they’re airing. With a few exceptions, I wait for the DVD and/or Blu-ray sets so I can go on marathons — the only kind of marathons in which I’ll ever participate. Here are capsule reviews of seven such recent tubular trips.

Blade Anime

The vampire hunter gets a toothless treatment.


Action

Rod Lott
I love the character of Blade. I love the Blade comic books, starting with his debut in Marvel's Tomb of Dracula in the 1970s. I love all three Blade movies — yes, including that third one. Hell, I even love the short-lived Blade series Spike TV aired in 2006.

Chiller: The Complete Television Series

Yikes from the UK.


Television series

Rod Lott
While a bit too stiff-upper-lip for my tastes, Synapse Films’ release of the British TV series Chiller is welcomed nonetheless. Any release of a horror anthology is, especially one this little-seen.

The Great Gildersleeve Movie Collection

You’d have to be a harrrrrd man not to like it.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Now that I’ve devoured Warner Archive’s The Great Gildersleeve Movie Collection, I know who my mom was referring to all those years. It’s irrelevant for your enjoyment of the set, but Harold Peary’s Gildersleeve character proved so popular on the Fibber McGee and Molly radio program, he was spun off into his own show (and eventually TV and these films).

Flash Gordon: The Complete Series

Can he still save every one of us?


Television series

Rod Lott
Until Warehouse 13 and Haven came along, Syfy’s idea of an original series was a largely frightening prospect, and for good reason. I’d been led to believe that its short-lived Flash Gordon update (2007-08), carrying bad buzz before it aired, was one of those train wrecks.
