I LOVE Mystery Science Theatre 3000! And I know I'm not alone in my fandom. And I'm sure there are various places out there that pay tribute to the show that made riffing on movies an artform. But that's not going to deter me from getting in on that action. So from October 22 until November 22 - which is Thanksgiving Day - I'm planning on running the "MST Month of Turkeys" on my blog.
Basically the idea is on each day I'd post a review/recap post of a
particular episode on my blog, much like the way the few "MST Monday"
posts were (And I do plan on resurrecting that as a regular feature
after this experiment is done). But I want to gauge and see if there is
any interest in this project before I dive head first into it. That's
where you come in! Since you're reading this, I assume you're also a
MSTie and would like to see me go forward with this. So, tell me what to
watch. I want you to tell me your favorite episodes or any episodes you
think I should consider watching. Leave them here in the comments,
message them to me on Facebook, send an e-mail to me at
firstname.lastname@example.org with the list. However you decide to do it, get
in touch with me and tell me what to watch. And feel free to suggest as
many episodes as you want. We have 31 days to cover, and lord knows
there's more than enough episodes out there to cover that time frame.
Any episode is fair game; Joel-era, Mike-era, Comedy Central-era, Sci-Fi
Channel-era, I even have a couple of KTMA-era episodes in my
collection. Like I said, lots to work with.
You have from now until 5:00 PM EST on Monday October 15th to get
your suggestions in. I know that might seem like a small window of time,
but keep in mind I need to find time to compile the results as well as
watch and take notes on the episodes that will become the blog posts.
And between work and rehearsal, my free time isn't exactly copious so
I'm going to try and budget my time as best I can. The number of
suggestions an episode gets will determine when it's discussed; the
episode with the most "votes" will be covered on Thanksgiving, 2nd most
on the day before, and so on. In the event of ties, which I'm sure will
be likely, episodes I personally prefer will be given preferential
treatment and moved ahead in the rankings.
Thanks for reading and I hope you'll support me in this possibly
foolish, but hopefully entertaining endeavor. Push the button, Me.
