Shout! Factory TV and Joel Hodgson’s Alternaversal Productions Present the Surgically Enhanced 2022 Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathon
Tune In to See Eight Freshly “Surgically Enhanced” Fan Favorite Classic Episodes, Plus Two Fan-Favorite Episodes from Season 13!
This year’s annual Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathon is the biggest event in nearly 30 years. Join your fellow MSTies along with hosts Felicia Day and Rebecca Hanson for a day stuffed with turkey… of the cinematic variety!
Starting at 7 am ET / 4 am PT on Thursday, November 24, the marathon will feature an extended lineup of ten feature-length episodes and one short film. Alongside new host segments, this year’s event includes two feature-length episodes and a short from the show’s current Season 13, screening for the first time outside of MST3K’s independent streaming platform, the Gizmoplex.
The marathon also features eight classic episodes with newly upscaled versions for this year’s Turkey Day event.
Series Creator Joel Hodgson says, “These ‘Surgically Enhanced’ episodes have had their visual components upgraded to 1080p from the original 480p. Strangely, the MST3K Surgically Enhanced process also gives the upscaled films a distinctive ‘new car’ smell.”
