I have to admit, while I remember this show being on the air, I never did watch it. However, it's pretty insane that a show that's been off the air since 2007 still has enough dedicated fans to draw $2.5 million in a single day for a movie to be made.

Article says it actually met the $2 million goal in 11 hours. There are people pledging hundreds - some thousands - to see this movie made. That's completely insane to me.

But looking at this, I can't help but to think about the precedent this will set if it actually works and goes on to be a success. How many great cult classic shows have been cancelled and never heard from again? This sort of thing could become relatively common. I'm sure the studio never dreamed they'd actually get the $2 million, much less in 11 hours.

I really liked the show and was bummed out when they canceled it. I would love to see the story continue in a movie

I wouldnt mind seeing a Pushing Daisies movie if this leads to other shows being brought back.

I've already seen at least three other shows mentioned as possible options for a similar pledge-based campaign.

Someone needs to make a Kickstarter to give My Name is Earl one last episode. Ending on a cliffhanger sucks.

I liked watching the show Veronica Mars. Always thought the writing was very well done.
Might just have to donate. Damn, the $10k speaking role is gone....nooooooooooooooo.

Wonder if Walking Dead could do a fundraiser for charity.....donate to be a zombie for a day......
$100 - slow walker on screen???
$200 - shovel death by Carol
$1k - crossbow by Daryl
$5k - zombie who kills the next main character.

With people coughing up this kind of dough for a tv show, it makes you wonder how bad the economy truly is...
