Interview: Felicia Day & Rebecca Hanson from MST3K

Last Updated on November 28, 2022

Back in its original run on Comedy Central in the 90s, Mystery Science Theater 3000 gave its loyal fans something to be truly thankful on Thanksgiving Day with the “Turkey Day Marathon”, where the MST3K cast would host a selection of episodes to keep you laughing at B-movie cheesiness while your turkey slowly prepares throughout the day. And the past couple of years have brought us not only the return of MST3K, but also that of the Turkey Day Marathon, which this year is being hosted by the marathon’s first ever female hosting lineup: Felicia Day and Rebecca Hanson, who respectively play Kinga and Synthia Forrester, two of the evil scientists from the Forrester family that continues to hold hapless humans hostage up in space with some robot pals to suffer through (and make jokes about) the worst movies ever made. On top of that, this year’s Turkey Day is “surgically enhanced”, with six classic episodes from the show’s original 1989-1999 run that have been digitally remastered from their original broadcasts, and two brand new episodes from MST3K’s 13th season that’s been airing all this past year on the show’s crowdfunded streaming platform, The Gizmoplex. Join Jesse Shade of Awfully Good Movies for this exclusive interview as we sit down at the virtual dinner table with Felicia and Rebecca to discuss all things Turkey Day and MST3K. Gobble gobble!

The MST3K Turkey Day Marathon will be broadcasting live on most major streaming services–YouTube, Twitch, Pluto TV, etc.–starting tomorrow at 7am ET/4am PT. You can stream the marathon without ads at, as well as rent/buy the show’s brand new 13th season, which concludes with its Christmas special (THE CHRISTMAS DRAGON) premiering on DECEMBER 16th.
