    Yup, the email came this morning. Apparently, they announced it during the Turkey Day Marathon, but I didn't get to watch.

    Oh, I missed the last part of the marathon. I tried pausing the stream during Arrow, but apparently the "Twitch" thing that was airing it wouldn't let you pause for a full hour. In previous years, I was able to pause the stream and catch up or jump forward through it later, but apparently this service doesn't allow that. And the last movie they showed didn't interest me. So I missed the last couple of host segments. (I also skipped Warrior of the Lost World, partly because the audio and video were out of sync, but mainly because the feed failed just at the start of the movie and I couldn't get it back for a while.)

    And Jonah's reaction to the renewal implies that he survives that rather dark cliffhanger at the end of season 11. I was kinda wondering about that.

    Now if we can just make most episodes in Season 12 as funny as "Cry Wilderness" that will be an awesome thing! Hands down that was the best episode of the past season. I can't wait to check out the new episodes!

    HI KEEBA!!!

    Great news. Although I had mixed feelings about season 11 (it often felt overly scripted and rushed, especially early on), I'm glad the franchise is continuing.

    Yay, they're using different camera angles in the SOL set.

    It's such a petty thing but it makes me happy.

    (I'm not so thrilled that it appears the voice actors are still not puppeteering the robots, judging by the atrocious lipsynch. [Beak synch?] Which is weird because on the live tour they most definitely do, and the results are superior.)

    I grew up on Mac and Me. It explains so much.

    Shout Factory is also having a marathon the Sunday before Thanksgiving.
    So excited for the new episodes I may feign being "too sick" to drive to a relatives house that day.
    "No, you go, have fun. I just feel really bad."
    (in the distance can be heard "WE'VE GOT MOVIE SIGN!!!")

    I know of it from working in a video store for a few years. Never popped it in the VCR though.

    It was an infamously bad attempt to rip off E.T.: The Extraterrestrial. I've never seen it myself, because I saw the reviews when it came out and thus was warned off.

    Pod People > Mac and Me.

    That is all.

    Now I'm even more horrified. Pod People is barely watchable.

    Waitaminute, a marathon on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. That just a little over 24 hours. I need chips, dip, water, coffee, other assorted snack "foods" and probably a way to check my sugar level and a defibrillator.

    This ought to brighten up some faces in this thread if you're feeling a little down. Turkey Day 1991. The one that started it all, and the greatest of them all.
