WATCH: Enjoy cinematic turkeys with a ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Thanksgiving marathon
The resurgent cult favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000 is marking Thanksgiving once again by live-streaming six classic episodes throughout the day on its YouTube channel.
Comedian Joel Hodgson’s creation is enjoying an online revival as of late, after a crowdfunding drive on Kickstarter garnered nearly $2,800,000 in donations — enough to create three new episodes. Hodgson has said that it would take $5 million to produce a 12-episode season.
While the cast for any new episodes cannot be formally announced until the fundraising drive ends, Hodgson has already said he planned to invite Jonah Ray to succeed him and Mike Nelson as the host, with Hampton Yount and Baron Vaughn voicing robot sidekicks Crow and Tom Servo, respectively.
The show’s new villain is slated to be played by another popular figure in sci-fi circles, actress Felicia Day.
