    Joel gets the year wrong on the first Turkey Day Marathon: it was 1991. I know this because I’d just gotten Comedy Central two weeks before, and took to MST3K immediately (I was looking for a way to get into B movies for kitsch humor value at the time, and really liked that prop comic on SNL back in the day).

    As for “Thanksgiving for nerds”… well, I’m not really a nerd (per se). I have things in common: really getting into my favorite pop culture, not being into sports. MST3K is appealing because of irreverent, sometimes weird comedy, not out of some huge affinity for science fiction. I like comic books, but for humor, human interest style storytelling (SOME fantasy), but mainly because of cartooning, which I love. Comic books as a medium, not a genre. And I also love Monty Python, but more lumped in with SNL, SCTV, etc., not Star Trek, Dr, Who, etc. (I do like the original Star Trek series, but not as a huge deal).

    Anyway, count me in as excited for the new MST3K, and perplexed at the more pervasive negativity in the fandom.
