(For everyone wondering ) its uploading right now. But it could take a few more hours from the look of it. I am not with jake and its uploading from his house, but it will be up at some point tonight/this morning
Depending on your time zone, I’d recommend getting some sleep. Again, sorry about the delays.

Okay, I’m posting this to nullify everything user zippythezippy is saying because I don’t want any rumors circulating. While it is very likely this user is making this up, I don’t know who they are so I wanted to level with anyone who has heard any of those things.
1) The “Scott Thing” is nobody’s business and, if you do know what that means, is a falsehood.
2) Not just the actors, but EVERYONE involved is doing this for the fun of it. No pay. I give actors gas money and food (and board when necessary) because they come from all over my state and that is costly. However. Every single person who’s working on this is donating their time and talents for the love of the craft.
3) Our budget wasn’t even CLOSE to 24k I don’t know where that’s coming from. We reached 17,000 dollars USD by the end of our 60 day Kickstarter campaign. However, Kickstarter and Amazon payments keeps a percentage - as that’s how the sites work - and so we ended up with JUST over 15,000 dollars total. We don’t get that many Paypal donations.
4) London. We didn’t use ANY kickstarter money for our trip to London. That entire trip was paid for by Pawtal’s parents as her dad is an amazing bloke who wants this project to succeed as much as the rest of us. And we weren’t just there filming b-roll. We were location scouting for when we go BACK to london - which will be out of MY personal pocket as well as all those who go - to film season 2 stuff as well as having meetings with producers, getting the name out and rubbing elbows with some very important people who are ALSO interested in where this project goes.
Our kickstarter breakdown didn’t lie to any of you and we didn’t make as much as this user seems to think. I work two jobs and put every paycheck into the kickstarter account, saving only what I need for gas to GET to work and what I need for food that week.
I don’t know what kind of “Rumor mills” are apparently going about us - or if any are, as this user is the first I’ve heard of any of this - but if you have a question regarding it, feel free to ask about it as I assure you there is nothing shady going on. Everyone involved in this project just wants it to be the best it can be. And if you all were curious, once season 1 has taken off and finished, I will be able to turn my attention to the kickstarter. I estimate that prizes/incentives will be sorted and shipped around springtime.
You guys are all amazing. I tried to discuss this matter with user zippythezippy privately but upon asking who they were, they replied “Moriarty” and refuse to cooperate with me, so I just wanted to squash any incorrect rumors before they have a chance to start. Love you guys. Thanks so much for all your support.
At long last, the future army doctor John Watson will be portrayed by the lovely, handsome and talented Arthur Dodge! (His initials are ACD, by the way.)
However, youtube currently says it will take several hours to upload.
Thank you to everyone who’s been waiting, and a HUGE thank you for all of your messages of love and support. You’re all amazing and we’re going to get you this episode as soon as humanly possible.
