A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
Right and the fact that they were able to arrange pre-release of a couple episodes for pre-release parties just for backers, something that I've never heard of being done before for any Netflix and Amazon show, show that they care about their fans and backers. As backer of many Kickstarters over the years, there was nothing "scummy" about how any of this was handled.Since the kickstarter NEVER promised free access to the (full) show, they're not doing anything wrong - merely inconvenient.
The kickstarter basically promised knick-knacks for the privilege of funding the show - that's all.
The show got picked up by a streaming platform - and most of those have a cost to subscribe. Certainly any platform that would have picked this up (Netflix or HBOMax for ex.) would also expect a subscription to watch.
