No, I've never paid. Just registered and have been watching countless things ever since, just like on YouTube. I get that movies have a 'Pay to Watch' option, which I never use. But for a Web Series you're going to charge to watch? That's dumb.

I'm fine with paying, it's like 14 bucks for a three-month rental vs, say, a 14 dollar 3-day rental on something like Amazon.  Fvck that.  Besides, since this season was crowdfunded, aren't we really just paying for season 2 now?

Well, I have every intention of buying Season 1 on DVD, sight unseen. So, they will be getting my money eventually.  :)

So do I... I just have no idea how long it will be "exclusively on Vimeo OnDemand"

The one thing I found to be very odd and we haven't even discussed it is why would they sign an exclusivity deal with Vimeo of all places? I still look at them as a niche site. I would have expected to see this show on Amazon, Hulu, Netflix or YouTube before it would land at Vimeo. I don't have a problem with them mind you. I just think that Nathan and Alan would want the most eyes on their show which is something the other 4 sites would have in spades over Vimeo.

I dunno the details or anything, but Vimeo isn't just a video hosting site like Youtube, it has a reputation of being more artsy, it's a place to find quality work by professionals, while Youtube is more... it's the public forum, if that makes sense.  I also think if they went onto Youtube, and people ripped them off, it would be hard to differentiate the proper one from the leeches.  Vimeo doesn't have problems like that.  There might also be better copyright/download protection there.  I would LIKE for the show to find its way onto Netflix or Amazon, especially if that comes with full-length episodes and a bigger budget, but right now they seem to own and control it themselves and that might be something that Netflix and Amazon can't really offer.  Ownership beats easy eyeballs, and the fans who want to see it will follow them there easy.  They already did, I think Con Man broke the Vimeo record.  They're like the big fish in the small pond there, not a bad situation to be in.

The price of Con Man is about to jump so I bought it while it was still cheap (well, I hit the "buy" button but it says I rented it... we'll find out in three months, I guess)... and while the first three episodes I previewed were good, the following were god damn hilarious, multiple screams of laughter.  Absolutely worth plocking down some cash for.

No DVD? My Library usually goes for DVD's first before ordering select few Blu-rays.

Never-mind. It's a Combo Pack.
