MST3K Show Numbers?

Search Forums:

Not sure if a thread was made for this, but I was wondering why the show numbers (201, 812, etc.) are not given on the MST3K releases. I remember Rhino releases did this. While I know the internet and episode numbers are just a click away, it would be awesome for the episode number to be mentioned on the back of each slim case. Even just a small number in the corner would make it much easier for one to reorganize the individual cases into a chronological order. Plus, it's a rather valuable piece of info.

I'd also appreciate the show numbers on the box.  I end up filing them all by episode number, and every single time I've gotten the new box set I still look for the show number, forgetting that SF doesn't include them.  I'd love to be surprised and actually find them on the next set.

Thanks for the reply! That's odd that they'd take it under consideration, but never follow through with it. It's such a simple piece of information to include. Here's hoping they have space for three little numbers on upcoming releases.

That has been brought up before, bharmon, and I think B Ward said that it would taken under consideration. While many fans do seem to have show numbers memorized for each and every season, that would be a nice little addition to future box sets. I'm surprised SF didn't do this starting with the very first set they produced, but apparently it's a detail they feel isn't necessary.
