    He actually said he would work for free and would pay for his ticket to the filming location.

    It's a nice thought, but I am fairly certain union rules would prohibit him from working for free on a for profit project. He would have to earn scale at the very least.

    But there's nothing saying he can't pledge his salary to the kickstarter.

    I think the point of the comment is to show how excited and committed Max is to the movie.... he loves it so much he would be willing to pay to travel the the shooting location.

    Ausiello got Rob T. to spill some dirt on plot elements of the movie (presented in annoying gallery format!). I view these as extremely mild spoilers, but technically they are spoilers nonetheless. For example, Rob reveals whether Backup is in the movie and whether Logan and Veronica are together when the movie opens.

    I think all of those were previously mentioned in other interviews he's given, such as either the HuffPo or the Sepinwall interviews.

    Not necessarily. As RT said in his interview, the bread and butter of the campaign was always going to be the lower donation amounts. As of right now, over $2.8 million of the $3.7 million total has come from donations of $300 or less. Sure, it takes more total donors at those smaller levels, but it's much easier to get 20 people willing to spend $50 for a Bluray, T-shirt, digital download, and a script, than it is to find one person willing to spend $1,000 for two tickets to the premiere and the after party.

    Just finished a Kickstarter-inspired re-watch of Season 1. I haven't seen it in years. It was a pleasure to go through it again. No spoilers here since I think some people in the thread are watching for the first time, but the Kane mystery is especially impressive: well-plotted and nicely parceled out over the course of the season. I can't think of a recent show that has done that so well. And the season just builds and builds, with probably the series' best episode (A Trip to the Dentist) as the penultimate, followed by the tense season-capper and the solution to the mystery.

    I don't have season 2 handy, so remind me something about the very very end:

    It was Logan at the door, right? I remember hoping it would be Wallace, because I liked their friendship and never really cared for LoVe or whatever 'shipper name the Logon/Veronica pair got. But it was Logan, right?

    Yes. He had gotten the living snot beat out of him by the bike gang, but my memory is hazy as to the why. Edit: ah, yes, they thought that he was Lily's killer, that's why.

    I started rewatching season 1 too and

    there is a lot that makes me cringe. The actors who play Wallace and Duncan are painfully bad. I don't and never did like Lily Kane. And I especially dislike old Veronica. And it makes no sense that in eight or nine months Veronica went from vapid, sweet follower to disaffected, smartass, badass PI. And boy is Logan an ******* at the start. I liked him at some point but right now it's hard to see why.

    Of course, the Veronica relationship with her dad and the mysteries and PI work make up for a lot of the above. But several years distance make the flaws really stand out.

    Which is why

    I never accepted him and Veronica as a couple. He just was too despicable for too long

    We may need to start a spoiler thread to carry on, but:

    I agree about Teddy Dunn (Duncan). Although I thought that at the time, too. But really, most young actors would get blown off the screen next to KB in that role. I always thought Percy Daggs was fine as Wallace. Yeah, his range seemed limited, but he was only asked to play limited. It was a convincing friendship. Mainly it bothered me that he was supposed to be the school basketball stud, but he was shorter than Veronica. :)

    Regarding Logan, I think that's why I always had trouble with them as a couple. The relationship didn't bug me nearly as much this time as it did then, because of course I knew where it was going and it didn't seem like such a sudden character shift. They certainly set the table for his behavior by showing us his crappy home life, but that's maybe easier to see in retrospect.

    Mostly I didn't like old Veronica's hair. :) I suppose having your mom abandon you, your father humilated, your family run broke, being drugged and raped, and having your best friend killed in the span of a few months will do a lot to toughen a person up. Overall I always took her as in that other life but not of it... she never was an 09-er, after all. And I always respected the show for not painting her in a completely flattering light as a result of all that stuff. She uses Wallace and everyone around her constantly, and in several of these episodes pushed the envelope to get even with the mystery-of-the-week suspects farther than her clients were comfortable with.

    Just great! I can't read your posts because I am watching Season 1 for the first time. I watched episode 19 last night! I hope to finish season 1 and start season 2 this weekend!
