Mystery Science Theater Turkey Day Stream 2017

While the meaning of Thanksgiving in the United States has been lost thanks to people who only look at the bad parts of our past and make the good parts look bad, people still gather together with family to give thanks for the good parts of the year as the Pilgrims of old once did. Some even still invite the neighbors over in gratitude.

But one tradition everyone can join in on. Back when Mystery Science Theater 3000 aired on Comedy Central every Thanksgiving a marathon of the most favored episodes would get run, with special gags included featuring the cast hosting the introduction to each episode. This year will be no different, although it’s moved online thanks to Shout Factory, the current video distributors of the series (not counting the episodes the Rifftrax team also releases). And with the new season available on Netflix (no, I haven’t seen it–I don’t have Netflix), we will not be getting those episodes as part of the livestreamed marathon because that’s how Netflix operates.

This wasn’t supposed to go up until tomorrow, but people have already seen it so why destroy the links? I hate screwing that up.

It’s Thanksgiving so most of you aren’t watching this right now. For those of you outside of the US you may be wondering what this holiday is about. When I was a kid there were very few Thanksgiving specials, and there’s less of those now. One I always fondly remember is Rankin Bass’ The Mouse On The Mayflower, which tells the story through a mouse who came along with the Pilgrims to start a new life in the New World. Enjoy.

Explaining the DC Multiverse Map

One of the few positives of the New 52 was the return of the DC multiverse, rather than the multiverse-in-all-but-name Hypertime. But how does the map created by Grant Morrison work? YouTube poster Comic Drake takes a look at the Multiversity and how the map is set up.
