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.

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.

+1

I would have done more (I would die to go to the premiere in LA!) if I had more...

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 had a bourbon marshmallow from a gourmet marshmallow place last week.

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.

I’ve started re-watching Season 1, and I’m realizing how much I had forgotten about the show. I’m also seeing a few actors who were lesser-known at the time. Last night I watched episode 7, “The Girl Next Door.” Jessica Chastain (“The Help” and “Zero Dark Thirty”) was the girl next door…

So, one month later and I finished season 3 today. I'm looking forward to seeing how (or if) they tie up the loose ends from the show. Season 3 was most definitely not the strongest until the last few episodes, IMHO.

That said, they always seemed to pack a lot of story into those one hour blocks.

I also think I didn't even finish watching Season 3 when it originally aired. The last several episodes were just completely unfamiliar to me. Even though I'd forgotten parts of the other two seasons, I still remembered the basic story line. Season 3, not so much.

I assume everyone has been following along with the casting updates.

So far, we have:

Veronica (duh)
Keith
Wallace
Logan
Cliff
Madison
Piz
Mac (yay!)
Dick (I assume -- was this ever announced?)

Did I miss anyone who has been signed? Any important characters missing?

Duncan Kane (Teddy Dunn), although frankly I don't expect him back.

Dick Casablancas (Ryan Hansen) has not officially been announced yet, but given that he was in the kickstarter launch video, I would be highly surprised if he weren't.

Edit: Vinnie Van Lowe (Ken Marino) isn't such an important character, but I think it'd be disappointing if he weren't in the movie somewhere.

Yeah, I don't expect Duncan/Dunn back, either.

I had put Dick in the list for the reason you say, that Ryan Hansen was in the Kickstarter video. I've mentally associated him with the movie from the start, but had to stop and ask myself if he was ever actually announced. That's an odd one.

Great call on Vinnie. A Ken Marino cameo would be a lot of fun.

I would like Corny back. And Deputy Leo (no official announcement).

I'm sad Lamb can't come back. And sad Meg can't come back. And Lili.

Maybe Clarance Weidman will be back, though

Weevil is onboard.

If you didn't watch Daran Norris' (Cliff's) YouTube "thank you" video, you should - it's quite funny:
