Everyone has different Thanksgiving traditions. But with the ubiquity of the internet, Thanksgiving traditions have taken on a different flavor.
For instance, if you are a fan of Mystery Science Theater, a show that premiered on Thanksgiving Day, 1988, you can catch a Thanksgiving day marathon of the show’s fan’s 6 most popular episodes online.
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.)
Another Thanksgiving Day online favorite is the WKRP “Turkeys Away” episode originally aired in 1978. If you’ve not seen it, its great comedy. RedState
If you are inspired by the WRKP episode to see an actual live turkey drop, they head on out to Yellville Arkansas (PETA will hate you if you do).
Okay, maybe that’s not for everyone; maybe an acquired taste. But if that’s not to your liking, and if you just can’t seem to lose that itch for political stuffing for a day, there’s always a pardon to consider.
Anyway, however you celebrate Thanksgiving, whether online or not – Happy Thanksgiving all!
