The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Kickstarter is nearing its end, and project lead (and series creator) Joel Hodgson is concluding the campaign in a big way: with a celebrity-filled celebration.

On Dec. 11 – the campaign's final day – Hodgson will host a live countdown party at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles. MST3K: The Final Countdown is an eight-hour telethon that will start off at 2 p.m. PT with a screening of two of Hodgson's personal favorite episodes of the original series. The video, which you can check out at the top of the page, is currently live – although don't expect to see anything until this Friday, when the event begins.

    8 hours but just 2 movies? Is that filler or will there be more than just Hodgson's 2 favorites?

    I watched a good portion of the Thanksgiving streaming event but the booze kicked in eventually.

    As for the new cast/voices for this revival, I will judge it when it comes out. I have been happy with Rifftrax [] as an MST3K replacement. The Miami Connection, To Catch a Yeti, Radical Jack, Alien Outlaw, R.O.T.O.R., Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny, Santa and the Fairy Snow Queen, and The Dark Power are all good picks. You can stream/download them for $10, or torrent them if you're naughty.

    For Christmas, nothing beats the original MST3K episode of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, and if you're into something a little slower and more disturbing, the MST3K for Santa Claus (1959)... featuring Lucifer.
