    I wish the $35 would get us a DVD and no shirt. I would rather have the DVD and am not likely to ever wear the shirt, but I don't wanna spend $50.

    Similarly, I would have probably gone up to $75 if it got me the Blu-Ray instead of the poster, but not $100.

    I kinda got caught up in this initially but now I think I'm over it. I really want to see the movie, but I don't need to spend $35 to get a T-Shirt that I'm not a huge fan of the design of in order to watch the movie online. If I could have just got the digital movie without tshirt for $25 I'd probably still be in but I just dropped my pledge to $1 and I figure I'll go see (depending on where it's released) or rent the movie and it'll be much cheaper.

    ... and there it is. The "most backers" record has fallen.

    Oh, man, I'm just the opposite. I get more excited every day. I told my husband--whom I made pledge separately so that he could get his own t-shirt, and so we'd count as two backers--that the trick for me is going to be how to set this aside for a year while they make the movie. :)

    I look at it like the prizes are just fun extras. I'd have given them money to get the movie made even if there were no swag associated. That I'm getting a signed movie poster is just gravy.

    I started rewatching the series from the beginning after the Kickstarter campaign began, and tonight I'll finish the last 2 or 3 episodes. The series holds up extremely well, even such that some of the casual throwaway remarks made "of the times" actually have even stronger meaning than before. I really, really miss this show.

    We need a Veronica Mars World, like Westworld, but without the robotic failures.

    ...and it's over. Pretty impressive result: 91,583 backers (Kickstarter record) totaling $5.7 million.

    I watched the last 10 minutes. I was really hoping they'd get over the 5.69M hump.

    Plus, I wanted to be doing what Rob and Kristen were doing. I'm all about copying the cool kids. :)

    Heh, I was, too, with exactly the same hope. $5.7 was a nice number to end on.

    It was kind of crazy how fast it went up there at the end. Overall, even though they added the $1 level to entice enough people to back the project that they could break the backer record, most of the support at the end was still at the larger levels. I saw plenty of $100 and $200 pledges go by in the final seconds. (And it came close to being able to break the backer record even without the $1 pledge level.)

    Even if I weren't interested in the movie, this would have been a cool campaing to follow. They really managed it very well.

    Agreed. And I'm looking forward to the continuing updates while production is underway. It'll be fun to be "behind the scenes."

    And very cool that Jason Doehring attended the party at the bar last night!

    I had considered heading over to Austin for it, but didn't get my act together in time. Where did you see that Doehring attended?

    On the kickstarter page comments. Several pictures were posted and people there were commenting as it was happening.

    I was ready to head there myself, but the last-minute airfare costs dissuaded me. By the time I paid for everything, I could've just bought a pair of NYC or LA premier/after party tickets, which really I chose not to do as it just wasn't really that "valuable" to me. Though honestly, if they'd sold single tickets instead of a pair, I'd probably have done it. :)

    Would've been fun to go back to Austin for a weekend, though. Especially at spring break-ish time.

    I dropped mine back to $35. The more I thought about it, I just didn't feel I could spare the extra cash. I still get the shirt, which is what I really wanted. I then purchased Season 1 from Amazon to watch on my iPad.

    Tonight, I just completed the series for the first time. I started watching it when the KS project was announced and finished up the last 10 episodes today.
