One of the best parts of Thanksgiving outside of the smorgasbord of great food and possibly watching two drunk uncles get into a fistfight, is the annual gift that is the Mystery Science Theater 3000 marathon.
The number of spots where you can enjoy watching the series from seems to grow every year. This year the whole thing will be streamed on Pluto TV, Shout Factory TV and beyond.
The events official description goes like this:
Break out the pureed giblets and crack open some canned wassail– it’s time to celebrate Turkey Day Mystery Science Theater 3000-style!

Sure, the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade is great, but the combination of booze, food and a sleep/wake cycle that would terrify Fred Krueger mixed in with a huge marathon of MST3K is almost exactly what 2020 asked for with it’s incessant bullshit.
