About the Joel Hodgson Interview

Hi guys. We are getting ready to do our second year of the MST3K Turkey Day Revival (). We had over 100,000 people tune in last year - it was a big success - so thank you for your support and we are happy to be bringing it back again this year.

A quick refresher for those who may not know what MST3K Turkey Day is: we will be streaming MST3K classics starting at 9 AM PST / 12 noon ET on Thanksgiving day on our official site, It is free and a better alternative than watching football.

Go ahead and AMA. Victoria's helping me get started.


EDIT this is so much fun, thank you. I'm so happy we get to do Turkey Day again, it's going to be a lot of fun. See you guys Thursday:
