Shorts, shorts, and more shorts. Not those shorts -- we’re talking about the short films your teachers used to make you watch on those days when they hit it too hard the night before and neglected to prepare anything for class. Only this time Mike, Kevin and Bill from Mystery Science Theater 3000® and Rifftrax.com® are there to exact revenge with their signature brand of hilarious running commentary.

Yes, from the authoritarian 40’s right up through the do-whatever-you-want 70’s they were there, lecturing, hectoring, and always, always yelling at you, insisting you practice proper hygiene. Includes ten complete shorts, including a loving, if paranoid, tribute to beer, the strange and mock-able antics of the Self-Conscious Guy, and a surprisingly balanced look at heroin use in The Terrible Truth. Wheel in the A/V cart, close the shades, turn off the lights and laugh along with master riffers Mike, Kevin and Bill. It’s like spending an evening with your funniest friends!
