Celebrate Halloween on the Satellite of Love

To truly love movies, you have to love them even when they're terrible. Which is why the various casts and writers who worked on MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 are so adored by fans. There's a playfulness to their banter that's rarely ever hostile, even when some of those movies are demanding to be abused (the odious GUNSLINGER leaps immediately to mind).

Rights issues have meant that early attempts to bring the show to home video were frequently uneven. The more recent collections of DVDs from Shout! Factory has ironed out most of those problems, delivering box sets of MST3K's best and worst moments on DVD. These collections are treasure troves of badness that ironically represent some of the best television ever made. Go figure.

This week, MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 is one of Amazon's Deals of the Week. The online merchant has cut prices to MST3K collections as much as 57 percent. The sale ends at midnight EST on Halloween.

(In case you were wondering, I'm on Team Joel.)
