Nah, not making anything up--trolling the Usenet seems pretty far down
the priority list at the moment.
There were basically two sets of bonus episodes--there were about 40%
of the MST3K in 540p resolution (I would prefer 720, but really, they
are a damned sight better than the 320ps I had that were burned off of
videotape in the MST3K Preservation Society downloads). Then, they
added another dozen or so episodes with the KTMAs--let me check the
colleciton real quick here...
K00: Green Slime (I had that one already--I think it was basically the pilot).
K01: Invades from the Deep in 540p.
K02: Revenge of the Mysterons from Mars in 540p--as a fan of Captain
Scarlet in elementary school, I will bet a mortgage payment that the
baddies in the title should be "Mysterions". But, hey, whatever.
None of the other KTMAs were included in the bonus sets. I don't
recall that during the Kickstarter that they listed the episodes
available as a reward bonus, so I can't speak to that.
Also, for completeness sake, for the first season they also included in
540p The Crawling Eye, The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy (an absolutely
cruddy version), Mad Monster, The Corpse Vanishes, Robot Monster
(because of course they had to), The Slime People, Robot Holocaust,
Moon AZero Two, Untamed Youth, and The Black Scorpion. I also believe
it to be the worst of omissions that Rocketship X-M was not included as
that is one of my favorites.
