Veronica Mars Articles
Duana and I were marshmallows last night. Translation for the uninitiated: We went to see Veronica Mars. Early. Like it’s been years since we showed up so early for a movie. And Duana wore the gear – a top secret, deep style cut, but the gear nonetheless. Her review will be posted later this morning/early afternoon and she’s still deciding how much to give from her initial analysis – the film only opens today, after all, so we might come back to a Part 2 on Monday – but for both us, it all goes back to that expression, so sanctimonious but irritatingly right, she keeps dropping on me whenever I ask her why Riggins and Lyla couldn’t be together:
Give the audience what they need, not what they want.
Can you do that when you’ve been Kickstarted though?
Let us know after you’ve seen it with that in mind. Read Full Intro

I drank a coffee in the movie last night. Well, actually, before the movie, because we had to get there at 8pm to ensure good seats for the 9:30pm show. I never drink coffee at night anymore, and I never go to a 9:30 show. Both of these are because I’m old. So going to see the Veronica Mars Movie made me worried that I was too old to be doing it.

Duana texted me last night after 9pm: “Don’t forget Veronica Mars this Thurs”. I almost forgot. Which is bizarre because Kristen Bell has been really up in our faces the last few weeks on her crusade. Still, it’s almost here. We go back to Neptune!
Veronica Mars premiered at SXSW on Saturday. Click here to read a roundup of some of the reviews. Not that they matter. Because if you’re a fan, if you know what LoVe means, you’ll be there anyway, right? I resisted Veronica for a long time. The day I finally gave in to Duana’s haranguing to watch it was probably the smuggest moment of her life. Because I was the one blowing up her phone at 1am gasping with disbelief and delight.

Okay, so Veronica Mars, right? If you’re one of those people who’s just heard about the movie like it’s so much noise, and is kind of rolling your eyes and maybe your Entertainment Weekly subscription is rolling in and you’re like “This on the cover?”, I have to tell you that you may be on the wrong side of history.

Okay, the Veronica Mars Kickstarter–funded movie trailer appeared on Saturday with the cast appearance at Comic-Con, complete with what we used to call an EPK (Electronic Press Kit) years ago – clips from the cast and Rob Thomas to get us hyped up. And I’m hyped – but not by the trailer, exactly. Full Story
Behold, the greatest delight the Veronica Mars Movie is going to present to us, or at least, the delight that will be mostly pleasure and not at all spiked with pain. Vinnie Van Lowe returns! I love him. I can’t help it. I love that reedy voice of his. Also, it should be noted that Ken Marino is drinking the blood of virgins or something, because he does not age at all. Full Story
No, I disagree with these photos. NO. To use an overused phrase -- DO NOT LIKE. Why is Veronica Mars holding hands with Stosh Piznarski? Do I have to sit through this with them? (Lainey: LoVe FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Because of course, there will have to be some annoying romantic entanglement. Full Story
If these are going to keep coming, this is going to keep being a lot of fun for us. Let’s see what we can figure out here. Yet another shot of Gia, hmmm? Krysten Ritter is lovely and amusing, don’t get me wrong. But methinks that, while the story is always the most important, it doesn’t hurt to move the actors who have become more high profile into higher-profile roles – or, at least, they’re the ones getting pictures taken of them.

It is not remotely the most interesting scene from the show -- I’m not sure it’s even the most interesting from the episode in question -- but when I think of Veronica Mars, I often think about the scene in season 2 where Veronica tries to set up Vinnie with a bugged pen, and he sings out the window to her to show her it hasn’t worked.
