Finally got it Friday and watched it a couple times. Another fun release. I liked Oozing Skull and this one did seem like a step up, though I think they still have awhile to go before getting the kind of comfort and familiarity we're used to. This seemed like an early MST3K episode, which I often felt were a bit "colder" as some people have said compared to later episodes. I'm not too worried about that, especially after how much evidence I see that this group REALLY pays attention to feedback. Really, pretty much every complaint or concern I remember from the first release has been addressed here. We get pressed dvds available after people were afraid they were going to switch to dvd-rs, this time we even get a case with artwork if you order it shipped. It's available worldwide. There was a short bit of explanation in the beginning of the episode, at least hinting at the premise. I see this as an upward slope so far, he're hoping they keep heading uphill.

Fewer freeze frames this time, probably figured the ending slowed things down enough as it was. Neither of the freeze frames were long enough to be full fledged skits, they were pretty much kept to short jokes as opposed to the longer bits they did in Oozing Skull. It worked for them here, but I wouldn't mind a longer skit here and there in the future.
