    So, GBAtemp, why haven't you donated your life savings yet?

    Still not going to goad me into backing a kickstarter LOL but the clip of Troy singing might do it.

    Does anyone else think it's kinda sad this show has to be kickstarted instead of already being on television? BTW, why the hell was this show cancelled in the first place?

    They've moved it towards a more online-oriented direction. Plus, I don't think people watch PBS for anything but Downton Abbey now.

    The cool thing is that they're making Reading Rainbow (the books and the "field trips," along with supplementary teaching materials) available online; the Kickstarter's meant to subsidize it all so that all of it can be freely accessed by children and schools.

    One can only hope they bring in DMX with the stretch-goals.

    They've gotten $2.5 million in just a couple of days, so now they're moving on to the stretch goals...

    If you've always wanted Reading Rainbow on your Playstation or Xbox, well, here's your chance... you strange, strange person.

    Now they're at 3.5 million and with 30 days to go, they might be hitting past that.
