You’ll, um, you’ll have to forgive us. We’re a little choked up. This Thanksgiving Weekend, Joel Hodgson hosted the first MST3K Turkey Day Marathon in 16 years, and he filmed new bumper segments for each movie. And, well, the last movie was Mitchell, the one where he escapes the Satellite of Love and leaves his creations, Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot. We knew they later came to Earth with Mike, but did they ever see Joel again?
Well, this Thanksgiving, they came to dinner.
Give us a minute.
Do you think he and Mike share custody? Like, maybe they’re spending Christmas with Mike??? AAAAHHHH!!!!!
Sorry. Today’s Morning Roundup features not only more MST3K stuff, but also news about X-Men: Days of Future Past, an interview with Cory Doctorow, and a deeply weird revelation about Harlan Ellison.
[Plus a meditation on the philosophy of Alan Moore.]
