    Or will they at least archive the host segments?

    Ugh. Being on the west coast, I always thought starting at noon was a little early, but 9 AM can be handled with a grumble. 6 AM? Forget it.

    yeah, is there a reason why it’s so early?

    The answer lies in trigonometry. Or maybe football.

    From the TV ads, it looks like it’s just Emily Marsh (E. Crenshaw aka Felicia-replacement) and Tom & Crow 2.0 hosting? This will be the first year i’ll be able to sit and watch the entire marathon, albeit for the saddest of reasons (between the Covid quarantine and my Mom’s death earlier this year) :(

  9. TorgosPIzzaNJ: I’m very sorry to hear about your mother’s death earlier in the year. We’re glad there’s going to be a Marathon this year, but it feels like it might be a little lonely without the usual folks. I guess this is in keeping with 2020 in general. Still, though, I wish you a pleasant, cheesy Turkey Day Marathon!

    Since you’ve gotta get up early to build the fire in the barbecue pit just grab a tortilla to hold off the hunger pains and settle back in front of the screen while you wait for the coals to settle down before the turkey goes in. For my neighbors that indulge the process goes like this…
    First the fire gets lit, then the chefs gets lit. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I think it’s starting so early because this is the first “international” Turkey Day, where other countries will be able to tune in live. That probably explains the somewhat unconventional episode choices this year (see mst3k.org for more details). But mixing the episodes up is a good thing!
    Speaking of which, this is the playlist I’m watching:

    The notice says it’s available on PlutoTV, but the MST3K channel is just showing its normal 578th showing of Crash of the Moons. Is it really somewhere else on PlutoTV?

    I looked ahead at their schedule and it looks like the marathon starts on the MST3K Channel at 11am (central time where I’m at).

    Shout Factory TV seems to be showing it at the advertised time. I turned it on and they were showing Hobgoblins. I would have greatly preferred Crash of the Moons.

    It was a blast. We alternated between the Pluto (starting at 11 AM EST) and our own “menu”- as much as I love Final Justice, we opted for a Rifftrax or two. It was great to see Carnival Magic during the Marathon too. All in all, as in years before, MST3k and ancillary efforts made for a fabulous, comforting experience.

    Yeah, it was a pretty lonely Thanksgiving this year. But being able to watch cheesy movies and live chat with other fans made the time fly by. I started at maybe 1:30-ish (Pod People) and before I knew it, it was midnight!

    I mostly tried to catch the host segments, at least until mid-afternoon. That’s mainly so I could see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and the National Dog Show. They both had formats that they’ve never had before, and probably will never have again, so I wanted to make sure to see them. It looks like the whole list is up at mst3k.org, and YouTube has the entire live stream available for replay, at least for the moment: https://youtu.be/JDMBdG0gsnw

    Actually, it looks like it’s only the first 12 hours, so the last part is missing. But most of it is there.

    Greetings, everybody! For my two cents’ worth, I missed most of this year’s Turkey Day Marathon. The episodes chosen were, for me, of the “good, not great” variety. I would have liked to watch anyway, just for the socially-distance communal contact. (I like Emily a lot, although I still have an issue with the reboot ‘bots.) Plus, as it is, I’ve been watching the MST3K Channel constantly since the lockdown started in March! Since then, I have seen all but 11 of the classic eps, augmenting the Twitch/Shout! rotation with DVDs from my own collection and YouTube. By my preliminary calculations, I believe I’ll get to all of them but Rocketship X-M, the two Godzilla movies, and Revenge of the Creature. (I have these on VHS, but all my tapes are in a musty storage locker, and I don’t have a VHS player, anyway . . .) Over the course of this process, I’ve learned much: like, I hope to never, ever see any of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians ever again; the Season 1 eps really aren’t too bad; Sinbad is the best of the Russo-Finnish quartet; and I somehow never realized how truly godawful Attack of the Eye Creatures is–in the running for Worst Movie Ever Made (still, an old favorite that I was happy to get reacquainted with).

    I tuned in for Pod People while cooking the turkey, and somehow missed the rest, to tune back in for the ending with the nouveau-MST3K “A Busy Day at the Fair” short.
    (What was that from, anyway?–The Kickstarter telethon?)

    And while Emily was cute in the live Circus shows, as a host, she’s dangerously on the edge of turning into that girl from the AT&T ads…
