Default MST3K is coming back!

In case any one hasn't heard, Joel Hodgson is running a Kickstarter to bring back Mystery Science Theater 3000. He's shooting for a cool $5.5M to fun a full season of 12 episodes. So far the campaign has passed the threshold for at least 3 new episodes and is very close to the line for 6. There is a boost during the yearly Turkey Day Marathon, but as with all Kickstarters, the momentum has slowed a bit. It looks like 6 episodes are pretty much a lock, but at the current rate we may only get as far as 9 new episodes if things don't pick up.

Joel is being very thorough in his updates and in spelling out his vision for the series. He is bringing a whole new cast, though all of the alums are invited back. I doubt the Rifftrax guys will have the time given the amount of content they churn out on a monthly basis, but here's hoping for some cameos! The new crew, so far, is Jonah Ray as Jonah Heston (?) the new host, Felicia Day as Kinga Forrester, Dr. Forrester's daughter and new voices for the bots; Hampton Yount as Crow T. Robot and Baron Vaughn as Tom Servo. No word on voices for Gypsy or Magic Voice.

Here's the link to the campaign if anyone is interested:

Bring Back Mystery Science Theater 3000

If this runs afoul of he "no fundraising" rule, feel free to give it the boot.

I sold the grand prize gift certificate I won in the Blowout Halloween promo and gave half to it! I'm not sure about the new people though. I mainly gave the money when Joel said he wanted to pay some of the old people who he thought didn't get what they deserved for the past.

There is no way out of here. It'll be dark soon. There is no way out of here.
