Merry Christmas (Eve), Children of the 90s! For those who celebrate Christmas, have a wonderful holiday, and for those who don't hopefully you're enjoying some time off. Tis the season for some time away from our offices, at the very least.
As some of you longtime readers know, I am a huge Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan*. The Christmas-themed episode I leave you with today is one of my all-time favorites. It features the full-length film Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, a Christmas movie that insults all legitimate endeavors in the holiday media genre. Spoiler alert: the film's title gives away the entire sequence of events.
It's a delightfully cringe-worthy piece of cinema. It's infinitely more bearable with the MST3K treatment, though, and the results are pretty hilarious. I leave you with my favorite of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Christmas episodes, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. Just don't say I didn't warn you.
