Well, I believe Hosk has changed tiers, so you can have All Of The Shirts if you've got $2500 Canadian to burn ;-)


I don't even have $10 to burn or I would donate $10 to the Kickstarter :(

so... 22 hours in, and we're basically 50% funded at this point... yeah...

Any bets on which Stretch Goal we'll stop at? I'm hoping for "ALL THE S1!"

I'm sincerely hoping that they need to invent NEW stretch goals.

Also, I've made a second Kickstarter account. Juuuuust in case.

Edit: Also, I think how far it goes is very dependent on who else links it. If Penny Arcade links it, all bets are off. And it'll be intriguing to see how it all goes once the next week of LRR videos, with the adverts in them, go. I would not be surprised by it barely squeaking in on funding or it going ridiculous.

Bittersweet, to be sure, but I like LRR like I like Star Trek: TNG. "All Good Things..." must come to an end. Ending on a high note and on your own terms is about the best that anyone can ask for. LRR will be unlike some other productions I've seen, where they just absolutely collapse because it took too much from the creators.

For every end, there's a new beginning, and I will be glad to see what this new beginning brings...

(The "Season 1 for Everyone!" goal makes me want even more to somehow get my hands on copies of Seasons 2 and 3. (I have 4 and 5.))

all the season bar 1 are still up on LRR's website, so you could just watch then on there, rather than getting the DVDs

The DVD commentaries are not online and I believe there is bonus content such as outtakes on the DVDs that is not online.

No, no, a thousand times NO!

:x :oops: :cry: :evil: :|

I have been watching LRR since season one. Its been one of the high points of my day, an escape from all the sad stuff you read online.

So whatever these other projects that are taking time away from the weekly videos that you guys produce, CANCEL THEM!

If you don't, I will be forced to shoot this puppy.

The other projects are unskippable, and friday nights, and strip search... If they cancel those we will go back to graham and paul filming on a camcorder with whatever props are around the house with filming taking place whenever and rushed "filler" episodes because no one had time for a sketch. Also they all have to get other jobs which means less time to think of funny things.

Sorry puppy, you gotta die so we can have hours uppon hours a week of funny free content.

Aquaman is more powerful than superman in his element. How about starting with The Toad.

Sounds like we have a plan for Aquaman... get him out of the water.

Aquaman is still really powerful even outside the water, I he's tough enough to survive at depths that would turn a normal human into red paste and on top of that very strong, strong enough to flip a truck without trying. And on top of that you have his wife who can literately draw all the water out of your body in seconds so that you die of dehydration, and if that wasn't enough, in some incarnations he can give humans seizures and perhaps even control them by attacking the ancient parts of our brain from back when we were amphibians.

TLDR: Aquaman is allot more powerful than people give him credit for

I didnt say he wasnt powerful, just being clear that he is more powerful when in the depths of the ocean. He got the reputation for being stupid because of the super friends where he was treated as useless other than being able to talk to fish.
