Turkey Day 2020

The MSTie High Holy days are upon us and Turkey Day is back once again. Here are the deets.

Break out the pureed giblets and crack open some canned wassail — it’s time to celebrate Turkey Day “Mystery Science Theater 3000”-style! This year, give thanks for turkeys of the cinematic variety as Shout! Factory and Alternaversal Productions continue the beloved holiday tradition with a newly curated “Mystery Science Theater 3000” Turkey Day streaming marathon, hosted by the cast of MST3K LIVE and special guests from the Netflix series.

Starts at 9 am ET / 6 am PT on Thursday, November 26.

    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) :(

    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:
