The cult classic TV series “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ is turning 25 this year! Yes, it’s been 25 years since Joel and his robot friends first appeared on local channel KTMA in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since then the Satellite of Love found new crew members, lost some, and went on to find homes on channels like SyFy and Comedy Central.
In honor of the 25th Anniversary, Shout! Factory has released a special edition DVD set collecting some great episodes and even greater memories. The celebration doesn’t end there, though, as Joel Hodgson will be hosting a special “Turkey Day Marathon” tomorrow on November 28th. Long time MST3K fans might recall that, in years past, marathons on Thanksgiving Day were a staple of the series.
The marathon will air online, here, and feature fan-favorite episodes of “Mystery Science Theater 3000″. The special showing will be hosted by Joel and start at 9AM Pacific/ 12 noon Eastern. Be sure to visit the official site for more information.
