I figured this is how things would play out. The fact that Cawley contacted Rifftrax personally just shows that the New Voyages/Phase II folks are the cool people that they appear to be in the interview clips I've seen of them. I kinda wonder in what way will Rifftrax and New Voyages "work together" on future releases, but I look forward to finding out. Maybe with some sort of "official sanction" from Phase II, the forum over there will chillax, and their members can hear about it, and find out what they are missing.

I see Mike, Kevin, and Bill as Romulans, perhaps Klingons, in a future New Voyages episode...   ;)

Well it's a no-brainer.  Paramount basically owns the videos since they are using Paramount's characters and names.  Paramount is who they should be getting permission from.  Maybe Paramount would let them do VOD's if they got a licensing fee.

But if you're looking for all of your posters to only speak up when they are pleased or see things the same way you do, that's not going to happen in this case... [people] whined about it. You stopped offering the video.   That's folding to pressure.  ...again, just one fat man's opinion.

That's not an opinion, that's a theory. And as we explained to you, an incorrect theory

What happened was not in any way, shape or form a direct result of "people whining" about the video. It may be an indirect result, because I'm not sure how else the producers and other people involved would've ever found out about the site if it hadn't been through people blogging about it and debating it in forums.

The actual bottom line is that we didn't "fold to pressure" - we respected Cawley's wishes and removed the videos. Sorry to burst your bubble :)

Regarding your first point, we don't mind if you speak up about your disappointment; just don't act so surprised when we correct you on something you say that is blatantly false.

But then we'd almost certainly see a price increase for them, and why go through all that?

I'm a little disappointed here, but I'll get over it and just get the next episode the hard* way.

*yeah, not really that hard, but whatever.

Well you could always just buy the .mp3 but for the uninitiated who need the video and audio all together, that might be a good compromise.  If possible.

Or maybe Cawley will join them to riff "In Harm's Way". He can pretend he's Joel Robinson or something. 'Cause Joel is a classic character, like Willie Lomen, or Falstaff... or Mel, the cook on "Alice". Many actors can play play him, each giving a different interpretation to the character.  ;D

My question is, who is the lady that these four men are fighting over?  Susan/Debbie?

NNNNNNNNNNNNNNERD!




What is that from? I've seen it around the forum a few times, but I never got the reference.
