It just launched and it's already at nearly 4000 backers and over 400,000 bucks.  0_0

The production on this show, as cheap and craptastic as it is, is clearly very expensive.  Not sure it's gonna hit those lofty numbers, but I'm allowed to hope.  smile

With rifftrax the mst3k need is pretty much met for me I feel like I don't really need a new MST3K with an unknown cast. I always skipped the parts that weren't the movie anyway.

I loved MST3k back in the Joel days but the quality quickly fell off after he left and by the time the mads bailed it was nearly unwatchable.

I'm pretty excited about the idea of a new cast if Trace and Frank Coniff weren't available.

The kickstarter has ended with $5.7 million pledged, enough to make 14 new episodes.

It's funny because I'm the complete opposite in regards to Joel vs Mike. Was also never a fan of the invention exchange. Did like the mads though.
It was an unfortunate situation they were in near the end. They couldn't really afford anything new, in regards to movies, and most of the old had been done. Which is why Rifftrax works so well.
But I will never wish that this endeavor ill. Though I do wonder if they try for another season if it will be successful.

People interested in MST3K might also want to know that there is a Rifftrax Live event tonight in theaters for the movie Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny.

That actually sounds like a much better cast and writers than the originals.  I might enjoy these.
