This is one fantastic compilation of one of the finest shows of our time.
30 July 2004 | by JojomartinSee all my reviews

MST3K: Shorts Vol. 1 is one of the best compilations of this fantastic series. There are a total of six shorts, all of which are hilarious. Shorts Vol. 1 includes such masterpieces as The Home Economics Story, Why Study Industrial Arts, Cheating, etc.. These shorts are some of Joel(or Mike) and the 'bots finest moments on the series. This is most definitely THE greatest way to get people into the show. While I started getting hooked on this series by watching "Manos", The Hands of Fate, this is probably the best way to get newbies hooked on the series. If you like smart, original, sharply written comedy this compilation will make you love this wonderful series.
