Madagascar 2, Oliver & Co., Space Buddies & Fear(s) of the Dark Hit DVD/Blu-ray
Launched into space with the mission of rescuing the lovely Vena from a gang of notorious space pirates, Rocky and his copilot Winky are once again ready to fight evil to the very end -- even if it takes them to the furthest edge of the galaxy! Composed of reassembled episodes from the short-lived 1950s television series ROCKY JONES, SPACE RANGER, MANHUNT IN SPACE is unable to escape the cinematic critique of Joel and the 'bots of the Satellite of Love. Also includes the short GENERAL HOSPITAL, segment 1.
After four youths are involved in a serious car accident, a mysterious man in black is sent to claim their souls -- but these feisty teens aren't yet ready to pass into the afterlife. Now they must return to their hospital-bound bodies before their parents decide to pull the plug or, worse yet, the SOULTAKER catches them. Starring MSTie faves Joe Estevez and Robert Z'Dar, SOULTAKER is perfect fodder for the sarcastic wit and wisdom of Mike, Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo aboard the Satellite of Love.
When tough-as-nails Texas Deputy Sheriff Thomas Jefferson Geronimo captures a member of the Italian mob, only he can successfully get his prisoner back to Italy to stand trial. But the Mafia declares war on Geronimo. That was their last mistake. The hard-hitting crew of the Satellite of Love -- Mike, Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot -- pulls absolutely no punches when riffing on FINAL JUSTICE (starring legendary MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 antagonist Joe Don Baker), making this one of MST3K's most beloved episodes of all time.
The MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 series was created by Joel Hodgson and produced by Jim Mallon. After a year on KTMA TV in Minneapolis, its national broadcast life began in 1989 on the Comedy Channel (later to become Comedy Central), where it ran for seven seasons. The show's final three seasons aired on the Sci-Fi Channel. The premise of the series features a hapless man who is trapped by mad scientists on a satellite in space and forced to watch old B-movies of questionable worth. To keep sane, he's built two robot sidekicks, and together they do a running commentary on the films, affectionately mocking their flaws with inspired wisecracks and acting as a demented movie theater peanut gallery. Series creator Hodgson originally played the stranded man, Joel Robinson. When he left in 1993, series head writer Mike Nelson replaced him as the new B-movie victim Mike Nelson, and continued in the role for the rest of the show's run.
