Jesus, do you think we found out enough about her finances? Seemed almost invasive.

I thought that was weird too. Especially that bit about the Avatar video. I think he intended to say "Hopefully that will make some money, you deserve it" but it came out a little closer to "You say it's hard to finance The Guild but you have a successful music video, what gives?"

I know, eh. You get an interview with Felicia Day and you spend half the interview discussing her funding and subsidies? And you keep going when she's clearly getting irritated with the line of questioning too. So many things would have been more interesting to hear about than how much money she made on iTunes.

That was my impression, too.

I kinda agree, but I'm sure part of the reason they focused on this so much is its something the Guild's fans have focused a lot on in the past. One of the things people like about the show is the extent to which they respect their fan base - when they were deciding whether to sign on with Microsoft, careful consideration was given to whether the fans would think they were "selling out" and what effect it would have on control of the show. The fan community was generally supportive of that move, but it did come with a lot of discussion and interest. That an interview would follow up on that is normal and appropriate, I think. Making it such a persistent line of questioning, in light of her responses, was a little weird.I also thought it was a little weird that they would put out a music video, sell it on iTunes, and have no idea if they were getting any money for it. But then, I'm not an artist who sells on iTunes and I have no idea how these things generally work.
