I am excited to enter this sweepstakes. Like I have relayed before, I must say that this is quite a surprise coming from Twentieth. We all know about their previous relationship with the show. Do you guys think it's possible that they are gauging our interest of MITM for future DVD releases...? But anyways, the commercial's dorky and those computers are so frickin' sweet. Wonder what the shirts look like.

I have questions, though: What exactly is the "revenge" and "unite" part? (Revenge against who? Unite against who? The normal populous for not watching 'Malcolm' and sitting there wishing they had?) And where the hell's Reese on the logo? Lol.

This promotion confuses me. Why are they doing now? What are they promoting there is no "news" for Malcolm? and dont they want it to reach the most people why not mention it at Fox.com? or mention it on TV?

True. Has there even been a MITM sweepstakes before? Haven't seen any TV ads for Revenge of the Supergeek/Supergeeks Unite yet, either.

All the better for me...

February is sweeps month and MITM still gets syndication ratings. It traditionally has rated real high in the syndication charts so they obviously want to keep it that way and a sweepstakes is a good way to keep people interested. When MITM was first syndicated only Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Seinfeld were better and now it's not even in the top ten anymore.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think I've spotted someone with the t-shirt prize. I say I don't know because it was a dark blue sweater with 'Malcolm' on the back in red letters. I didn't see the front at all. I'll update later, when I find out if I've won or not.
