The Ill Communication

A show and then a dinner

What has become a Thanksgiving tradition for me, I watch an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 before leaving to my folks place for Thanksgiving dinner, allowing myself to catch up on the big hits of the show that I missed prior to the Mike Nelson days.  Why only on Thanksgiving when I can watch it anytime on their official YouTube channel?  The answer is quite simple: I'm reminded when I see people on social media begin to retweet the streaming marathon they do for their traditional Turkey Day Marathon.

Yep, when it was originally airing, I got on board towards the end during the Sci-Fi Channel days, totally missing out on the Joel era, where I hear a lot more references to than the time Mike was the host.  Take last year for example when I finally got around to watching the Mitchell episode.  What a piece of gold that is!

This year?  Of course I couldn't resist catching up on the episode where they rift on the infamous film Manos: The Hands of Fate.  And after watching it I now get the references that movie is known for; although I was confused for a bit when I was watching that short about leadership titled Hired that was shown before the main feature.  I thought to myself how the heck does leadership and selling cars have to with a guy who wears a cloak with red hands imprinted on them?

Now that the show is over, it's now time to get ready to go and celebrate with family with a stuffed bird with all the fixin's.  To all in the US, have a Happy Thanksgiving.  Everyone else…the same as well!
