I just want to take a second to talk about this.
Yes, we hit two million.
We did it in less than eleven hours.
But you know what else we did?
We started conversation.
This show hasn’t been on air in years and we are starting conversation. People are talking about it. People who have never seen the show before, never heard about it. They are hearing about the group of fans that raised two million dollars to get a movie based off a show that was canceled after three seasons. They are talking about the people who broke records on a fundraising website and who quite possibly have changed the idea of how movies can be made.
So yeah, this is incredible; we’re getting our movie after all this time, but we didn’t just stop there. People are taking notice of this show that has changed all of us in different ways, and hopefully more people will begin watching it, even if it does “only” have three seasons. Because everyone should get a chance to learn the lessons that this show taught us - about fairness, justice, wit, responsibility, strength, dignity, honor, courage, bravery and that life’s a bitch until you die, but you still have a chance to make it as good as you possibly can, no matter what bullshit is thrown at you.
I say this from the bottom of my heart: thank you, Marshmallows. Whether you donated or not, you are a part of something spectacular.
We are the Veronica Mars fans and we are getting our movie.
