You may or may not have heard about the Kickstarter to revive Mystery Science Theater 3000. So far, it's reached its initial goal of $2,000,000 to film three episodes. Each stretch goal reached will result in three more episodes, topping off at twelve. Should the next stretch goal be reached by the end of Thanksgiving (that's this Thursday for you foreigners), there will be a surprise reward.

Yeah, I've been following it. I'll probably contribute a little something later. I am skeptical it can work but I'm willing to give it a chance.

I'm hearing, and I don't know if it's true, but the surprise reward if reached by Thanksgiving will be the three initial KTMA shows that nobody can find.  The rest of that season is available via the tapes that circulated. 

I'm hoping to contribute to this. 

Even if it hits the full 12, who knows if it'll be picked up elsewhere.

I wouldn't bet on the "lost" KTMAs, Happy. They have never officially released the "found" KTMAs, so I would bet that's what Joel is hinting at.

True.   Smile

At this rate, it looks like they're gonna at least hit $3.3 Million, so we'll at least hit 6 new episodes of the show.

Which, as a lifelong fan, I wouldn't have imagined in 2015.

I'm sure Joel is involved in some capacity.  I doubt he'd do all this work for nothing.  He's at least writing, and cameo'ing on it. 

If the show went longer back in the day, we'd have had new hosts, Mad's, etc, anyway.  Sci-Fi Channel cancelled it so.

Their dream was to have it kinda like SNL, where it changes every few years.

He's invited everyone back that was involved.  Some said they won't do it, but I'm sure if they hit enough cash to fund it, they'll work things out. 

I'm excited for a new chapter in this.  At this point it looks like they'll hit enough for six episodes.  I hope they can do enough with that six to have a network pick it up for a full season.  Other shows have done reboots that have worked.  Plus it helps some new, younger comics launch their careers to the next level.  And all of them were fans of the show handpicked by Joel.  I have faith in him.  This doesn't seem like a cash grab.

Just over 48 hours to go. Looks like there will be 9 episodes (I doubt they can make it to 5.5 million for 12 episodes but maybe Joel has a trick up his sleeve. Could be an angel will swoop down at the last minute).

I'm going to go ahead and pre-order the DVDs from the add-on site. That's $85 for at least 9 episodes, a decent deal (assuming the new episodes don't suck!)

Just a hunch, but I am thinking the animated TITANIC movie will be one of their riff choices. Even more likely is one of the THUNDERBIRDS movies, since Shout already has the rights and we know Joel is a fan.

We're guaranteed 9 episodes. 

I like the casting choices so far.  And I'm hearing (nothing official) that the Rifftrax guys (Mike, Bill, Kevin) will be involved in some capacity. 

Some of the writers write for Rick and Morty, and that's a fantastic show.  With Joel overseeing them, this could be good.  If it is only 9, fine, but I'm hoping someone, somewhere, sees the nine and what they can do, and helps them out.

Patton Oswalt being cast is great.

They're doing a final day telethon with a bunch of people, including some of the cast, Pendleton Ward (Adventure Time's creator), Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.  I don't know if it'll be enough to grab the last 1.3 million, but considering they had $300k off Kickstarter that suddenly appeared (curious where that came from), I wouldn't be *too* surprised if it makes it from a combination of the telethon and some other outside source we don't know about.  Either way, it really sounds like Joel is trying to do it right... Roiland and Harmon doing some guest writing (I think Roiland could solo-riff a movie drunk and it'd be watchable, if not as refined as MST3K) is a terrific idea, and some of the other writers sound good too.  I'm looking forward to it.

I think the 300K comes from "add-ons" that they sell in the MST3K store, which they add to the Kickstarter total later.

Anybody who pledges even $1 gets a downloadable Rifftrax short. I pledged $1 and will pre-order the season from the store. I am still not 100% sold on the idea but I think it's worth a shot. Worst thing that happens is I get to see a bunch of bad movies with professional comedians making fun of them.

The 'add-ons' could push it.

I just checked and they're around $4.6 Million.  Will it hit the $5.5?  Who knows.  But there's literally 26 hours to go.

I'm excited.

It needs to earn 500K on the last day. I have the feeling they have some angel lined up to swoop in and make up any shortfall so they will be sure to make it to the goal.
