You know what’s better than being half awake on the sofa after a turkey dinner watching Thanksgiving football? Being half awake and watching the Mystery Science Theater Turkey Day Marathon. Joel, Mike and the Bots know how to stuff quite a few birds on the big screen. Thanks to the folks at Shout! Factory, MST3K is back on Thanksgiving with a more than just seconds of pumpkin pie. Even more exciting is that they’re making new MST3K episodes thanks to a Kickstarter that’s reached the first goal. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory about where to find the marathon with new segments on the internet:
Shout! Factory TV presents…
THE 2015 MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 TURKEY DAY MARATHON!
Partake in a Thanksgiving feast of six classic MST3K episodes, roasted, carved and served hot all day long. Enjoy a side dish of fresh fan mail and art during the marathon and on social media. And top it all off with pleasant conversation, joining @JoelGHodgson, @MST3K and your fellow MSTies, LIVE on Twitter and Facebook. #BringBackMST3K
It’s all happening Thanksgiving Day, November 26th at 12pm EST. Stream it for free at BringBackMST3K.com and on all your favorite digital devices.
