Hi guys! Remember that I said I would tell you all about the night I had with my girlfriend. I now it was i while ago but i still wanted to recap it with you. We started watching the series and it, well, went ok i guess. She didn’t quite like it so much that I had hoped, but she was willing to give it a try. So we watched a few episodes and but it wasn’t really her type of show. I can’t believe it. I was so looking forward to have a shared interest with her. But I guess it sometimes is the best thing that you don’t share all of your interests with each other. Maybe that is why we are so good together, maybe. I don’t know. She really is the best anyways, she is ok with watching the entire first season even though she didn’t like the first couple of episodes. And she did think that it was cozy in my room at least hehe. Well that was it about the night, not much to say.
I got some news about the new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000! The original creator and writer Joel Hodgson has answered a few questions about the new season and i thought i would let you know it! The first questions is about the budget. They pledged for 6.300.000 $ for the entire season and people wondered why they needed much. The first three episodes needed two million dollars and Joel answered that out of the two millions they need to pay 700 000 only on the costs of their campaign. After all costs they are planning on paying 250 000$ per episode. And his final words are “i hope you think 250 000$ per episode feels more reasonable than 2 million for three”. So yeah it sounds a bit expensive but with all the costs and things they need to fix I do understand, and we do want the show to be really good don’t we?
The second question was the one that i have had up on the blog also: Except for Joel, will the other MST3K writers and actors come back? (yay for this question)
Joel’s answer wasn’t perhaps exactly what we wanted but at least we got an answer. What he said was that if the Kickstarter were to be successful, then he would invite everyone from the old cast but he doesn’t know who will agree to come back. I think it depends a bit on the relationship between the cast since most of them didn’t nd on a good note the last time. I quote Joel – “At the same time, I’d love to work with the entire old team again. Mystery Science Theater 3000 became the show you know and love because our writers and actors were – and are – some of the smartest, funniest people I’ve ever worked with. If they have time to come back for the next season, I’ll be so excited to work with them again.” I really hope that they will be a part of the show so that we can see some true MST3K moments in this new season also

A few questions i actually feel bad for him, when fans are angry and doesn’t trust him. I think it will be a great new season and we just have to trust Joel and the rest of the team.
