As I work down into the last quarter of Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes left to rewatch and comment on, choosing which one to look at next seems less a matter of whim and more a process of careful comparison. One big thing adds a touch of the unexpected that might help keep the process from becoming too ridiculous from the wrong (or right) perspective, though, and that's Shout! Factory. I suppose I would have saved "Manos: The Hands of Fate" not for the end but for close to it, but not that long ago there was an announcement the episode was getting a special re-release with a retrospective discussion among some of the show's creators and other goodies, including the "raw" movie itself for those of special boldness. Having established long ago that I'm far from above buying DVDs "over again" on the mere promise of some small bit of new or improved content, I put in an order for the new edition; when it arrived, I decided I might as well watch it then and take in what's long been one of the most infamous and notable episodes of the series.
