Summary of "The 20th Anniversary Edition: Limited-Edition Tin Box Set (AKA V13) - Great show, bad movies":
Who knew watching horrible movies could be so fun? I had a blast watching Mike and his robot buddies rip into these bad, bad movies. While some of the comments were actually informative, most of them were silly and funny. The 3-part documentary, covering the entire run of the show, is great, and features interviews with the main cast and crew members. I'd love to see Shout! Factory sell this on its own and load the disc with an episode guide for the entire series, along with all the original theatrical trailers.

This set has already proved to be so popular that Shout! Factory has shipped all the sets to the stores, so if you want this set you should rush out and pick it up. A standard release will be available on November 18; it won't have the tin, lobby cards or the toy. My only complaint with the set would be how tight the DVD package is inside the tin box. it took me a couple of minutes to get it out without damaging the cardboard, but that may have been due to a small dent in the tin box. Thankfully the DVDs, stored in slim-packs, slide into a normal cardboard sleeve, so you can just put that on the shelf instead of the big tin.

MSTies will love this set, if they can find it in stores to buy. (read entire review)
