  10. Guys, LeVar Burton Needs Our Help Bringing Reading Rainbow Back [VIDEO]

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    May 28th, 2014: Birds are singing, the sun is shining, and there's a Kickstarter campaign to bring Reading Rainbow back. Its new incarnation won't be the same as it was before Satan reached up from Hell and cancelled it in 2009. Instead of a half-hour TV show, it'll be a series of video field trips and interactive kids books better suited to today's digitally connected world. LeVar Burton explains it all in the vid above, but here are some highlights: Part of the money raised will go toward making the new Reading Rainbow free for cash-strapped schools. That Star Trek pun. A completely accurate representation of what it would be like to meet Burton IRL. And the a special cameo at the end. But you don't have to take my word for it. Watch the whole thing yourself. After all, you don't want to disappoint LeVar Burton, do you? Because we know from Community that that's the worst feeling in the world.
