Following the show like I have for over 20 years, there's a part of me that feels like I knew the original cast a little bit. These streams have helped be get to know the new cast better, which is a really good thing.

Just think of all the cool stuff I can see.


All this hemming and hawing about the KS and all I can think about is what happened to Dr. Erhardt in the intervening years. In my head he escaped from under Dr. F's thumb and ended up growing up into literally just J. Elvis and now he's the ultra suave and unflappable king of the mad science scene. Like the complete opposite of Kinga.

It won't hit the backer goal for t-shirt designs (which, honestly, who really cared about that one) -- but it already blew past the financial goal of 4.25 mil for the day.

Per the last update on the Kickstarter, that goal is until the end of Wednesday's livestream. Today's Monday

So they have at least 48 hours (possibly a few hours longer depending on how long that stream goes) to get 1865 more backers. Not a guarantee still of course, but days ago we had some people thinking $4mil total would be a struggle

Never underestimate demand for more MST3K. The one lesson that should be learned from the last 6 years

For what it's worth, this is more trashy shoujo manga than trashy nerdbait hentai.


I kinda low key love how there was so much chatter during Gamera vs. Guiron that it took until about halfway through the movie before anyone realized they were mispronouncing "Guiron."

Ok, that seems more likely. Having the event from last night broadcast out on the 'Jackbox' Twitch channel rather than the MST3K channel helped pull in some new sets of eyes -- but it probably needs one last media push to find the few remaining humans on earth who were fans -- yet still somehow unaware of the new Kickstarter. It feels like word of mouth has gone as far as it can.

23,000 backers still feels like a low number to me.

I donít know how much of it is existing fans not knowing about the Kickstarter versus those just not caring to donate for whatever reason. Or maybe Iím just vastly overestimating the size of the fan base.

Iíve been quick to point out how good the numbers are whenever anyone seems pessimistic, but it is true that this one has lagged behind the last Kickstarter in the number of backers. Itíll get a lot more in the last couple days, but I do expect it to finish well short of the last one in that regard. The people who have backed are generally giving more than last time.

For what it's worth, the total got a $25k bump several minutes ago. We're past $4.3M and closing on $4.4M now, so 9 episodes are just about in the bag.

Looks like 15,000 or so pledged in the final few days last time.

If they get 8-10,000 more this time that will be great. If itís more like 3-4,000 that may make sustaining the Gizmoplex harder.

The last campaign had more hype, but also had the advantage of not offering ďmore of the same.Ē Plus a number of people seem to only want to fund once, not keep fundraising for every season.

As a side note, looks like the Rifftrax liveshow Kickstarters end up being around a quarter-million per movie. That suggests 4 shows for $1 million is repeatedly sustainable for them. Of course, they make more money via selling tickets, too. Without knowing all the numbers, itís hard to guess how sustainable a yearly Kickstarter might be for MST3K, but I think Rifftraxís business model of providing a steady product and then Kickstarting a ďbonusĒ live show or two works better for keeping support.

A little over $60k away from the 9-ep goal. Should be reached during tonight's livestream
