kakashi: It's a bottomless hole. It's pretty amazing.
JoAnne: Supposedly, this episode is done. Ready for our viewing pleasure, however loosely you define that word. But we aren't going to get to see it for a while. The Williams sisters instead sent out an apology 'because of circumstances' and then a plea 'give us money!'
What the everloving hell.
kakashi: They're withholding their master piece from us, JoAnne! No pleasure until you pay!
kakashi: So ... I went on that platform. Cause I'm mean, granted. They want (BRACE YOURSELVES!) $250'000. This is what they say. See if it makes sense to you ... " In order to complete episodes 5-16, we need to raise at least $100,000 to be able to complete the project. We would like to re-film episodes 1-4 to be able to have a series that is up to quality standards and that tells the story we want to tell without the actor limitations, locations or holiday limitations, etc. We need to raise $250,000 to do that."
(yeah ... $496 is what they got. I'm sorry, not sorry). And yet everyone involved still 'feels the love' and 'appreciates the support' and believes that this show 'must' be made...else American TV will never put any effort into a quality production. Because nothing good has ever come from American TV before, I guess.
kakashi: Indeed. The two sisters from hell came up with the idea to create Boys Before Friends because of "their love of K-Drama and their dislike of current American TV." Also: "At the end of the line, we will have created the first American "k-drama". 16 wonderful episodes that will leads to the adaptation of other Asian Dramas hopefully by bigger networks with bigger budgets." I am not sure whether I should laugh hysterically or wail in disbelief.
kakashi: "This should is amazing. Our fans are amazing. Our Cast and Crew are amazing."
kakashi: "We have great perks for anyone who can donate. We have cast pictures, skype sessions, BBF branded products, visits to the set, and much more" ------- JoAnne, I think I'm going to donate $5. I really want to skype with Chase, the little shit (in case you wonder why I call him that, go watch Episode 0).
kakashi: I'll miss this. Somehow.
JoAnne: No, but seriously: who starts a project without enough money to finish it? Why are they doing it as a live shoot anyway? Who doesn't know that you have to quality check things before you put them up? Telling us that NOW you know the quality we deserve pretty much negates all your claims of experience in the industry. If I lived in a cave in the middle of the desert and had never seen tv and this was the first thing I ever got to watch I would STILL know this was crap.
