It's great news, happy for them. Wonder what would have happened if they were raising money for a second Serenity?

Could you please just make it stranger? Stranger. Odder. Could be weirder. More bizarre. How about uncanny?


Just gotta say I am glad to see them doing this. They are two of my favorite actors, and I am happy to support them in this venture. In the past I've supported other nerdtastic webseries (like Standard Action and Table Top) and I think it's a great way to see the kind of entertainment that the Networks fail to deliver, in my opinion.

Say it with me: "I will see you in hell!" :D

BWAH!

TV schedulers often find obscure early works of current stars to air, like at the time of a new release of the big star.
Toady was watching Alan playing Carnie against Anton Yelchin and Mika Boorem (The Patriot, Trucker)in Hearts in Atlantis from 2001, which I have not seen before. Maybe they're paying attention to Firefly alum.

I was curious if they had broken the $2 million mark, but not quite at $1,854,715. They still have 27 days, so I'm pretty sure they will make it. I noticed the $100 Super Duper Fan category sold out at 2500 which includes a signed 11x17 poster of Alan, which sounds like his writing hand better be in good shape. It will be interesting to see if this attracts other actors to try their own shows without big network financing, but this level of money may be enough that acting contracts may get modified.

They finally broke through the $2 Million, but just barely at $2,031,830. The next goal is for a comic book release with a goal of $2,250,000. Since the pace has slowed down, it will interesting to see if they make it.

Fox would have found a way to defund them. Actually, I'm surprised Fox didn't buy Indiegogo just to shut down Con Man before it could reach its goal.

By the way, they passed 3,000,000 and all stretch goals are met.

Yeah I saw that. Hope Con Man is a success.
