Cult Corner: How To Live Stream ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Turkey Day For Free!

“Turkey Day” was born in 1991. Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot wore silly costumes. The team created some interstitial sketches. Oh, and Mike Nelson parodied A&E’s Jack Perkins! The Thanksgiving marathon continued with a larger budget and more sprawling narrative. It soon became a cult favorite amongst comedy nerds and cinemaphiles trying their best not to watch football or engage with family members during the holiday. […] [Mystery Science Theater 3000] has been resuscitated with the help of Shout! Factory TV, RiffTrax, and a recent Kickstarter campaign to create brand new episodes. Staring at 12 pm EST tomorrow, November 26, 2015, Shout! Factory TV will offer a free Turkey Day live stream at www.BringBackMST3K.com. – Meghan O’Keefe, Decider

Robot.” Corbett have been continuing their crusade of irreverent commentary by way of their home base, RiffTrax.com, as well as live appearances. Though they’re no longer making fun of terrible movies under the Mystery Science Theater 3000 umbrella created by Joel Hodgson, the trio is still partying like it’s 1999 and delivering their familiar wisecracking on everything from B-movies to Oscar Winners — new and old — through various collections on RiffTrax.com. – Olivia Armstrong, Decider

Now there’s a whole website (that isn’t YouTube) devoted to streaming MST3K

Today, along with the addition of three newly cleared episodes, Vimeo and Shout! Factory announced the launch of downloadmst3k.com, a website that isn’t YouTube but is nonetheless dedicated to streaming the movie-dismantling riffs of Joel Robinson, Mike Nelson, Crow T. Robot, and Tom Servo. More than 80 episodes of MST3K can be rented or downloaded from the site, which, despite its commitment to spreading the good word from the Satellite Of Love, is not YouTube. […] The site will also host the 2014 edition of the Turkey Day Marathon, though for a mere $299 (or roughly 20 large sausage-and-mushroom thin crust pizzas from Torgo’s) you can watch those episodes (and many, many more) whenever you please[.] – Erik Adams,The A.V.
