Jeff carries the spirit of the Totally Rad Show forward with a new show about all the things you love to love! Read more
This project was successfully funded on April 4, 2013.
About this project
Reveal #9: Oh yeah, and these guys...
Reveal #8: Brian Brushwood!
Up to this point, I have only confirmed guest hosts that are local to Los Angeles to ensure we will be able to make it happen when the time comes. The hope is to actually allow for remote guest hosts as well (which is an entirely different, exciting list all its own), but that is still being worked out.
However, I'm willing to make an exception for this one. Brian Brushwood is not only one of the most badass web personalities around - the host of Scam School, Framerate, and the always insane NSFW show on the TWiT network - he's also the guy who convinced me to make this new show a reality. Without him, I would not be doing this, and I am eternally grateful and extremely excited that he has agreed to be a future guest host! Plus, the guy eats fire. Come on!
And that leads me to the Bonus Content! As part of my deal with the devils (read: Brian Brushwood, his partner-in-arms at NSFW Justin Robert Young, and their awesome live audience known as the Chatrealm) the night before the announcement of the Kickstarter, there will be a Bonus Episode for Backers, where the NSFW team will take over the new show and turn it into Webbernauts! I have no idea what that will entail, and it may not be ready for prime time, but, god help me, I am a man of my word, and Webbernauts will happen. Shudder.
UPDATE #10: Exclusive Backers-only content is up!!
Become a Backer to see Dan Trachtenberg and I discussing Bioshock Infinite. in two videos - one spoiler free, and the other a full discussion of the ending!
Plus, my review of GI Joe: Retaliation is up!
I think we can do it, and it will go a long way in proving to everyone watching that this project deserves their attention. Even $1 donations have a huge impact, so please consider joining the 2N1Team - or telling your friends to join up, too. I think we can break the backer barrier and create a sonic boom that will reverberate around the web!
Thank you all. I am determined to make something you'll be proud you supported.
The new show from the Totally Rad Show's Jeff Cannata.
Do you love movies, video games, comic books, television, technology, novels, board games, and genre entertainment of all kinds?
Once upon a time, there was a show hosted by three guys who loved all those things just as much as you do, and who covered those topics with enthusiasm and a bit of whimsy. I was one of those guys, and that show was called The Totally Rad Show - but it went away at the end of last year.
Now, I'm hoping to carry the torch of rad entertainment forward with a brand new show! You can help make it possible by donating to this Kickstarter.
But what is it?
Think of this as "Jeff and His Amazing Friends". Each week, I will cover the biggest genre news, review the latest movies, video games, TV shows, comics, and more, and invite some of my friends and notable personalities from around the web to hang out and talk about what they love most. It will be your one-stop shop to find the very best stuff you should be watching and playing, all with the personality, positivity, and passion that made TRS such an internet hit.
Donate and stay tuned to this page as I begin to reveal some of the people I have lined up for appearances.
UPDATE!! The first reveal! I'm happy to announce that my friend and former co-host from Reviews on the Run has agreed to join me for one of the first episodes. The fantastically talented, super hot, always opinionated Miri Jedeikin from Electric Playground!
So where will I watch this show?
This Kickstarter is all about getting the ball rolling. I want to create a high quality show that can continue for a long time to come. If this project is funded, I'll make a series of pilot episodes, which I'll use to find a more permanent home for the show on the web or on TV. If you donate, you'll get these new episodes, as well exclusive access to update videos on the project before the first episode hits - and hopefully the show will find long-term distribution and continue on for years to come.
That sounds awesome!
But wait, there's more!
I have some very lofty goals for this show, and want to take it farther than an internet talk show has gone before. If the Kickstarter exceeds its goals, I'll be able to do more to make the show even better. I've already been in talks with the creator of a popular online animated show to create an animated "show-within-the-show", and would like to be much more ambitious about what kind of things we cover.
This is really just the start of something special. Jump in. Join the 2N1Team. And let's start loving to love things together.
Risks and challenges
Any new video project is full of risks. I will be building this new show from the ground up, with a new design, new equipment, and new crew. Luckily, I'm gathering a fantastic group of people around me, with experience producing great content on the web and on TV. The goal is to create something you'll want to watch on your big screen. That may take time, and it will certainly take some money. Stay up to date with all of the challenges and triumphs as the show comes together by donating to receive my update videos.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

BRAND NEW WEEK 2 REWARD LEVEL
You've transcended mere titles and find "rewards" beneath you. Only one thing can possibly live up to your unfathomable level of support. You must BECOME the show! At this level, you eschew all the rewards above to instead lend your very being to one of the first few episodes. Indeed, the viewer becomes the reviewer. If you can get yourself to Los Angeles, you will join me and the very exclusive 4 others in this category for an evening reviewing board games. We will eat some food, play some games, and the whole thing will be recorded for use in the show!Estimated delivery:
