Yeah, that does seem kind of pricey, doesn't it?
For what it's worth, that was the site that was used to allow the
kickstart people to download the bonus episodes. I vaugely remember
something about them costing $999 each, like the price point was set
there so that it was easier to flag those episodes for download by the
kicksterters, or something similar.
Honestly, I'm kind of surprised that the 540p episodes haven't been
uploaded here or to the other two MST3K groups in the meantime.
