I have the Volume 7 DVD pack and the iTunes download, but have only watched this episode a couple of times. The iTunes version, by the way, has the chapter markers where they need to be. I wish they did that with all their MST3K episodes.
I love the Steve-O-Meter skit in the Invention Exchange. Word is that when Steve Allen saw a tape of the skit, he loved it and let the MST3K crew know.
The plot of the film doesn't exactly follow the Hercules mythology. It's like Michael Moore or Oliver Stone made a documentary: 80% is just plain wrong and the other 20% isn't quite right.

|The Steve-O-Meter||Gypsy sings!|
Well, I can.
