Here in the United States, yesterday was Thanksgiving Day, and I spent it playing video games, cleaning the kitchen and hanging out with my family.  We even watched some Super Sentai, as my daughter suddenly decided she needed some Gokaiger in her holiday.  I even found the elusive Rainbow Goblin in ‘Diablo III’, which I’m actually genuinely, albeit mildly, thankful for.  Even on that smaller scale, Thanksgiving is one of the big holidays ’round these parts and the end of the arbitrary calendar year makes it a good time for reflection about all the things we love.  For my part, I’m thankful for ‘The Good Place’, reruns on TeenNick and things that I am weirdly paranoid about typing lest they suddenly be proven untrue, leading to today’s superstitious query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) eschews the term “American Thanksgiving”, as there are a lot of countries in the Americas, and Canadia had their Thanksgiving like a month ago, asking: What are you thankful for in the hellscape of 2020?

    On the geek side, I’m thankful for new Doctor Who, a solid and fitting end to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The New Mutants movie finally being released, the comics market soldiering on with some wonderfully diverse creations, and the utterly massive depth of play that the Marvel Legendary game offers with all of its expansions.
