Nastolgia Critic got 89k on indiegogo to start new shows, then ripped everyone off

So theres a guy called the Nastolgia Critic who owns a community of content creators called that guy with the glasses (changed their name to channel awesome now), which some big youtubers came from like AVGN, angry joe, amazing athiest, spoony, etc.

Well 2 years ago they started an indiegogo campaign to start a new show up, and it raised 89k.
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/...-shows-and-more

This is what they came up with....
show


Backers of the indiegogo got pretty cool prizes like:
$2,000 you can watch them film an episode.
$3,500 you can eat lunch with them.
$6,500 you can show up in an episode.
You have to pay for your own expenses such as traveling and lodging.

50K was suppose to be for a pop quiz show.

They just air'd the first episode a few days ago and this is what it looks like:

Good. If people are willing to pay up for a show from a whiny and unfunny manchild they deserve to be ripped off. Hell, everyone who supports projects on indiegogo and kickstarter should be ripped off

I backed for a game called Pillars of Eternity on Kickstarter and it has turned out to be a marvellous wonderful experience

"Almost a million dollars produced this."

There's a gap of information between these two statements

Wow, I haven't watched those guys in years. Somehow this is less classier than one of the girls from that site leaving to become a camgirl.

Stopped reading at first paragraph:

I woulda rec'd not blindly making that investment for, $100/hr consulting bill, so like $0.03.

Nostalgia critic is one of those names I've heard but never bothered to find out what they are. Probably never will

Nostalgia Critic and AVGN are the only people there that are worth watching.

Half a million is $500k, they raised $50k, that leaves a difference of $450k. Where did the $450k come from to make up the half a million used to produce the show???

Or did they make the show on a budget of fifty thousand dollars?



Stay in school kids.

Well that's probably the dumbest thing i've read in a while, and I post on an Xbox forum full of insufferable Microsoft fanboys.

There have been a lot of great successful kickstarters and indiegogos

Backing on kickstarter or indiegogo has its risks. If you don't want to risk your money then don't contribute. I fail to understand why everyone always gets their panties in a wad every time this happens.

I like the nostalgia critic, but I had no idea his channel was that big. The quality of his vids made me think it was just a 'me and a few friends putting our own money into this for fun' type of thing. The fact hat he got any amount of money on indiegogo is impressive.

This guy makes a crappy game show with under 100k. Meanwhile, Zach Braff raises over 3 million and makes a good movie.

I watched the NC years ago, but then he started incorporating his cringey-ass friends and I couldn't handle it. Not surprised this show is garbage, though.

I only watched like one or two NC episodes and I though they were cringeworthy. I used to love AVGN when i was like 15 years old, but the newer stuff is terrible and James has become a moneywhore. The oldest episodes haven't aged well at all aswell

Yeah NC is pretty cringe. He reminds me of those akward kids who act over enthusiastic and overreact to shit to be funny, and the scripting's pretty cringe.

I watched the cinema snob a bunch for a while though, but he's pretty sad in this gameshow.

There's a civil war in Sri Lanka where the Sikhs are killing all the Israelis and you're worried about a dopey internet show.
