Just ordered mines, should be a nice wee treat for Xmas.
Shamefully thanks to the awful conversion rate of £ to $ this one's costing £5 more, even though the $ price is the same. Obviously not the Titans' fault, although it would be great if they could have a look at the whole financial thing, maybe give some advice.
It always comes crashing down around your ears. At least they may have hurt their bums on my monitors.
Just finished watching (got the download). Overall, a good job. The only problem to me was the fact that i know the riffs from the MST version by heart, and to hear something different from that just sounds strange to me. I guess with a couple more views, it will get better.

I ordered mine. I had to order the actual dvd this time rather than going with the much faster download. Why? Because they don't have unlimited mb-age in Australia and downloading CT costs about 4 GB (or roughly 1/3 of our monthly download allowance). So I guess I have to wait about two weeks. I sincerely hope that this is worth the wait.
I was a bit skeptical of this episode, mainly because the MST3K version is one of my favorite episodes and not simply because of them doing it again (which is not unprecedented, giving the KTMA re-dos).
So I'm glad to say that they pulled it off because this is the best CT episode yet, IMO! The riffing was great! I did suffer a bit of an odd "phantom riffing complex" in which I was anticipating a favorite line from the MST3K version that then wasn't there, but that didn't distract from enjoying this episode for what it delivers.
