    Patton is amazing. So glad he's involved. This fat guy in the glasses and grey button up yelling at people is not so entertaining.

    The thing with Patton reading the tweets was fantastic. Loved the guy who said they should riff this live stream :D

    They weren't even expecting to hit $5.5 before the telethon, so probably not.

    Poor Joel had no idea they hit 5.9 million, he looked like he was gonna faint when this awful guy in the glasses and grey button up told him.

    New stretch goal - if they get to $6.3 mil they will do 14 episodes

    (they may actually hit this - still an hour yet and I don't think they've updated the addon number at all... so probably not adding it in to the total yet? Or maybe they are)

    Edit: SWEET! More Rifftrax are being added to the $35 and $85 pledge levels!

    Their audio cut out but they're giving a shout out to Rifftrax, so that's pretty nice of them

    Aaaaaand this is officially the number one television Kickstarter campaign of all time. They're leaving Veronica Mars in the dust.

    They're still live streaming on youtube. Looks like they're getting way up there in goals. Also apparently the chat on youtube absolutely hates Paul and Storm. Which is sad, because they're cool.

    The good news is it's a youtube chat with 8k+ viewers so you almost can't even expose yourself to it

    Paul and Storm are fucking awesome. Been a fan of theirs since they were half of DaVinci's Notebook.

    Also, thanks for bumping the thread and reminding me to hop on the Blu-ray pledge level before it expired.

    I went all digital. It ended up being just over $6 an episode, and I know it'll be worth that much even if it takes them a few episodes to get their footing.

    Is that who that was? The one in the grey button up and glasses, no hat... he acted like a little bitch all night. Yelling at people in the shop and snapping at people on the set, trying to insert himself on camera multiple times when it wasn't even supposed to be their segment. He came off as a huge prick and their songs were fucking stupid.. not in a good way either. I don't care how great some of their work may be, I have no intention of ever supporting that ass clown in any way shape or form.

    Patton and Felicia should have hosted the whole thing.

    That said I'm incredibly stoked we are getting FOURTEEN episodes and I'm super proud to be a backer!

    "Hi, I know you just said you're a big fan of these people but LOL THEY SUCK FUCK THEM"

    I didn't see the whole telethon but what I watched was real fun.

    I think it's awesome that donations continued to pour in despite the real problems they were having during the telethon.

    Hopefully this turns some corporate heads. Now that streaming-only shows are a proven thing I think that would be a better distribution model for MST than traditional broadcasting. If they can keep the show going at about the same cost every season, I can easily see Netflix or Hulu dropping a cool $6 million a year on this. That's chump change compared to most shows! Daredevil and Jessica Jones cost around $3.3 million per episode.

    Also, they wouldn't have to fuck off a bunch of money to Kickstarter, or building the sets from scratch, so they could either just be even cheaper or make even more episodes.

    But I would guess they probably want to see how the show is in terms of quality before anything really happens.

    If they go with a streaming service, I really hope it's something I can just buy. I don't want to sign up for Netflix just for MST3k for example.

    At best, there'll be disc releases a year after it starts streaming. Netflix/Hulu don't generally do a la carte stuff, although Hulu would probably have an option to watch some episodes with commercial interruptions.

    Ok, the kickstarter page still says 96% funded. This is driving me crazy. UPDATE YER GRAPHIC!!! :P

    Side note, wasn't Pendleton Ward supposed to be on that live stream? Guess he couldn't make it?

    I'm surprised there hasn't been an update from Joel today. Maybe they are waiting to get a final tally on how many of those pledges actually come through. I'm sure plenty of people pledge and then their card doesn't go through or whatever.

    I know some people have had bad experiences with Kickstarter, but man, I've got nothing but solid jewel-encrusted gold out of it. Star Citizen. Pillars of Eternity. Two Shadowrun games.

    And now I've got a whole new season of MST3K out of it. So awesome.

    Joel tweeted that he would have an update on Monday.

    He had a small update today basically saying thanks for all the cash. Said he'd have some solid info about what to expect going forward tomorrow or Wednesday.

    I continue to be impressed by the talent they're assembling for the new MST3K. Joel announced their new head writer is a former head writer for The Daily Show:

    Yeah I feel very optimistic about the quality of this production. Writing is super important to MST3K.
