nuggetsMatt Webb Mitovich defends Kickstarter donors experiencing a backlash after helping raise $2 million to produce a "Veronica Mars" movie: "No, the 'Veronica Mars' Kickstarters will never see even a fraction of a back-end point if the movie happens to turn a profit. But they will smile knowing that they were a part of something rather historical. A gone-too-soon series was plucked from the ashes not by a struggling network anxious to plug a scheduling hole, but by the very people who loved and were left to mourn it. Stand on a soap box and question the dissemination of discretionary income all you want, but do not dare rob other people of their self-defined joy." TV Line
