Mystery Science Theater 3000
13x01 Santo in the Treasure of Dracula Post-Premiere Q&A
So, although the new season of MST3K premiered two months ago, it also premiered tonight. What? Well, before it was a backer-exclusive preview of an unfinished cut of the episode; tonight was the 'real deal'. I didn't watch the whole thing again, but did tune in for the live chat / Q&A afterwards, which was fun.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

Three new titles this week, including a BD-to-4K upgrade so exact (same number of discs, same number of cuts, etc) that it only shows on the UHD stat. It was one of Arrow's Dario Argento titles, which I've mostly been ignoring because I bought all of them on regular BD and, frankly, haven't watched any of them, so forking out the same money again just for the resolution boost, on films I don't actually know if I like, seemed daft.

But the last couple have actually started improving on the BD releases — this one was Deep Red, which adds a whole load of bonus features, as well as packaging more in line with the rest of the range. I couldn't resist. And next up, in a couple of months, is Tenebrae, which is a complete overhaul from the previous edition, so I'll definitely be buying that. Or I could actually watch my current copy and check I really want to...
