As a long time fan of the show (but not a fanatic) and Kickstarter backer, I was very, very happy with what I saw in the first new episode. They have combined just enough updates (love the new movie sign countdown sequence) with the classic format to make it feel both familiar and fresh. The first movie was plenty bad and most of the riffs hit their target. Only complaint is I would like to have seen more of the new Mads.
The rest of the season is now available for us backers and I’m on spring break so I may just find a dark room and binge the whole thing.
