LeVar Burton Raises $1 Million To Bring Back ‘Reading Rainbow’

Actor LeVar Burton launched a $1 million crowdfunding campaign on the website Kickstarter to produce new online episodes of Reading Rainbow, the children’s TV show about the joy of reading that ran on PBS from 1983 to 2006, and raised the money in less than a day. What do you think?

  • “As much as I’d love to see new episodes, I feel like the show really completed its arc in 2006.”

  • “I really wish Reading Rainbow had been there for me last year when I was struggling with Thomas Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge.”

  • “That’s incredible! Has anyone else thought of profiting from nostalgia?”
