๐ŸŽ„ Hooray for Santy Claus! ๐ŸŽ„ It's OPEN THREAD O'CLOCK for our Tribute to SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS! (UPDATE: Due to technical delays, tonight's livestream will begin 90 minutes late, at 9:30 PM ET / 6:30 PM PT)

Welcome to the second night of our Gizmoplex holiday extravaganza!! Tonight, ride along with Joel and the bots as they watch a kidnapped Santa Claus teach humorless aliens about the true meaning of Christmas, in SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS.

But first, weโ€™ll be premiering a BRAND NEW short riff, โ€œBicycling Visual Skills.โ€

Finally, stick around after the episode for a special holiday post-show event, โ€œThe MST3K 2022 Yule Log: Memories Roasting on an Open Fire.โ€ It all starts at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.

#SeeYouInTheGizmoplex!

ETA: Due to an encoding issue, tonightโ€™s show will now be starting at 9:30 ET / 6:30 PT. Our deepest apologies for the delay!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS :smiley:

My favorite of the Christmas episodes!

I wanna say that this was the fifth episode I ever watched (after Alien from L.A. on MTV and Pod People, The Amazing Colossal Man, and Space Travelers on the Mystery Science Theater Hour by way of a local channel affiliate).

Thereโ€™s a lot of good memories bound up in this one, stretching back to my time in junior high, and itโ€™s been a firm part of my holiday traditions ever since. And itโ€™s awesome to see such traditions still running by way of the Gizmoplex.

PLUS weโ€™ve got a great new short and aftershow shenanigans to look forward to!

LETโ€™S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

My very first MST3K and still one of my favorites. (It was true love from the fakey Polar Bear attack onward.) Been holding off on revisiting it all month in anticipation of tonight!

Normally, Roadhouse kicks off Christmas movie season in our house, but this is coming early enough that it becomes the kick off. Roadhouse will have to come later, but there is still 12 days until it is too late.

Gonna brew up some Eggnog flavored coffee to drink while watching. Unfortunately, I canโ€™t get Pizza EVERY night this week for health and monetary reasons, but Iโ€™m trying to make every show a little bit special.

As I said a couple weeks ago, the holiday season doesnโ€™t truly start for me until I get the Christmas trio going.

These mean so much to me and now Iโ€™m doing it on an official platform with a sizable group of fellow MSTies!

So ready for this!

(And yes, now I get to soon add the quartet episode to the mix!)

Same here! I wouldโ€™ve been all about rewatching it, but it seemed like it would be better to revisit those beats in a somewhat fresh style by way of the Gizmoplex!

I mean, Road House doesnโ€™t tell us that itโ€™s NOT a Christmas movieโ€ฆ

Canโ€™t watch the Mads and this at the same time. If i could would it make it Santa Claus vs. The Teenagers From Outer Space?

'cos Iโ€™d sooo watch that!

It is absolutely KEY to the holiday season. All of those episodes are.

And to be able to rock this out by way of the Gizmoplex is a fantastic new dimension to all of this, especially with the greatest fanbase in the universe!

Yeah, to have one more Christmas episode added to the collection is something outstanding!

The answer is two windows. I watched an MST3K event and a TMBG concert at the same. A bad idea, yes, but it was awesome.

Santa Claus versus lobster shadows and focusing disintegrators? I wouldnโ€™t bet on the other guys.

I watched one of the MST3K events and an NYR game at the same time.

At least with hockey, you can mute it and not lose everything.

You might get some of that wonderfully weird Dark Side of the Rainbow synchronicity!
