MST3K Marathon Returning This Thanksgiving

Courtesy: wiki
Because not all of us like to watch football after filling our bellies with turkey, we’re thankful that a Thanksgiving tradition is being resurrected this year. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, "Mystery Science Theater 3000" will be having a marathon on November 28, thanks to MST3K creator Joel Hodgson and Shout! Factory.

Starting at noon (EST) on Thanksgiving Day, you can head to MST3KTurkeyDay.com for six free hours of hilarity. Hodgson will be hosting and he’s currently taking requests on his Twitter for what episodes to show.

Hodgson states to Entertainment Weekly, “It’s really been interesting, and I really loved getting to go back and look at these shows, especially the Mike/Kevin/Bill episodes, which I’m not as familiar with. They’ve been extra funny because I don’t know any of the jokes. That’s been a really cool thing.”

So what are your requests for the marathon? Hodgson laments that there aren’t enough Thanksgiving-themed monster movies to riff. Perhaps he hasn’t seen “ThanksKilling?” Don’t forget to submit your requests and you can also head over to Shout! Factory for more details on this Turkey Day event.
