I'm hearing, and I don't know if it's true, but the surprise reward if reached by Thanksgiving will be the three initial KTMA shows that nobody can find. The rest of that season is available via the tapes that circulated.
I'm hoping to contribute to this.
Even if it hits the full 12, who knows if it'll be picked up elsewhere.
You may or may not have heard about the Kickstarter to revive Mystery Science Theater 3000. So far, it's reached its initial goal of $2,000,000 to film three episodes. Each stretch goal reached will result in three more episodes, topping off at twelve. Should the next stretch goal be reached by the end of Thanksgiving (that's this Thursday for you foreigners), there will be a surprise reward.
