I wonder if this is going to be part of a continuing thread of extras.  Like, is there going to be a little Servo or Gypsy in future sets, or is this just for the 20th anniversary?

ooh, that would be a great thing.  Now you've got my fanboy expectations raised again.

Also good choices for this set.  I don't think I've seen First Spaceship to Venus or whatever it's called.  The other three are certified classics though.

Isn't First Spaceship to Venus where "hikeeba!" was first used? I'm not going to watch it again until it comes out on DVD now.

I thought it was one of the Undersea Kingdom shorts, but I could be wrong.

Ah yes, I stand corrected.  It was the annoying engineer telling a story that originated the quote.

Yes, and Engineer Bradley was played by the insipid Wendell Corey, the man who was only slightly funnier than Sid Melton, but not as funny as Eddie Deezen.

When that came up on the screen I was really confused, I didn't recognize the title at first.  I'm starting to remember now reading about it in the ACEG, but I know I've never seen it.

Actually, that was a bit of a goof in the episode guide.  Red Bradley was played by Paul Gilbert, the adoptive father of Melissa Gilbert.

The episodes in this set are fairly solid, but I was really hoping for one  of the greats. You know, Santa Claus or Gamera vs. Guiron. Something like that.

The extras sound pretty cool, though ^_^

There are many who put Werewolf up there with the greats. I've always wanted to see Laserblast. I always wanted to know what happened at the end of the comedy central era.

Wait, Laserblast was the final Comedy Central ep?  I should remember it better.  For some reason I remember the last couple host segments and closing real well, but not the movie.

honestly, i'm happy with the episode choices.  Werewolf and Future War are 2 of my top fav episodes, and it'll be nice to upgrade them to a pristine version.  Laserblast is nice simply for the host segments, though the movie kind of just plods along.  Frist Spaceship from Venus is a nice little curveball ShoutFactory threw us.  Nice to get some more season 2 episodes, and nice considering that that was one that was considered unlikely due to rights issues.  Though it is a bummer to read through the comments page over at Sattelite News over the episode list.  Variations of " Meet the new boss, same as the old boss".....

Several solid episodes. Laserblast is fun. Also has one of my fav muttered riffs. The fat bearded cop is giving the 'hero' a speeding ticket and one makes a snarky comment to the kid. one of the gang (think it is Mike) mutters "Yeah eat me you fuzzy marshmallow..."
