A staple of a generation's Thanksgiving viewing will be back again this year, as "Mystery Science Theater 3000" will regale us with mindless and hilarious deconstruction of some of the worst movies ever made. Mental Floss has the details:
Beginning at 12 p.m. ET on Thursday, Shout! Factory will host yet another Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day marathon, hosted by series creator Joel Hodgson and comedian Jonah Ray, host of the series’ upcoming reboot. Taking place online at ShoutFactoryTV.com, Hodgson and Ray will count down the six most popular MST3K episodes ever, as chosen by its fans. (Here’s hoping Hobgoblins made it.)
It's bit irrational that staring at the backs of the heads of a weird, nerdy human and his two equally weird cohosts, listening to the conversation they have while watching a terrible movie, would be as hilarious as it is. Perhaps it's something in the tryptophan, because it's the perfect program to have on while you're suffering through the turkey meat sweats and possibly having a little nip to avoid listening to your goofy family member talk about their pet sugar glider. That's everyone's family, right?
In any event, here's to Joel and the crew. Best digestive aid in the universe
