I haven't been able to visit this forum recently, so I don't know if you've discussed this show already.

Have you guys been talking about it? Have you been watching it?

Good Word

Never even heard of it. What is it about?

It's essentially a detective show set in a high school.

Which sounds like a terrible show, but it really works. The setting, the actors, the tone are all wonderful.

Actually, there's a lot more to the show than that. But my attempts to describe it on other boards have made it sound dorky. So now I just tell people who like mysteries that they should simply watch it.

It comes on Tuesday nights on my local UPN station (in other words, the graveyard). Check your local listings, though. It's my favorite new show of the year, about House and Lost.

Veronica Mars's life changed unimaginably the night her best friend was killed. Her father, the local sheriff, was laughed out of office for daring to suggest that the town's local billionaire was responsible for his own daughter's murder. And as if that weren't enough, Veronica's mother mysteriously skipped town soon afterwards.

Ostracized by her high school in-crowd for siding with her dad, Veronica now helps her father with his new detective agency. Striking a delicate balance between math homework and undercover stakeouts, she struggles to solve the mysteries that have plagued her life over the past year. While these tragedies would have crushed the spirits of any ordinary teen, Veronica has turned her grief into fuel. She is determined to outsmart, outmaneuver, and out-snark all those who stand in her way.

Mix in three-parts noir murder mystery, a dash of high school intrigue, a strong undercurrent of the haves vs. the have-nots, and a healthy dose of sarcasm, and you end up with one of the best shows of the season.

For those of you who have never heard of Veronica Mars, here's some info.

It's the only show from the UPN/CBS conglomerate to land on Entertainment Weekly's list of top ten shows of 2004.

When given a choice between voting for Veronica Mars or Marti Noxon's Point Pleasant in the above mentioned poll, members of whedonesque.com overwhelmingly voted for Veronica Mars. (http://whedonesque.com/?comments=6177) (Marti Noxon was a writer and producer for Buffy.)

It is the highest scoring (http://forums.televisionwithoutpity.com/index.php?showtopic=3120844&st=45&p=2531877&#entry2531877) (based on recapper and user grades) show this season at Television without Pity.

Mars Investigations.net has very detailed recaps of every episode.
Here's the link for May 3rd episode. (http://www.marsinvestigations.net/episodes/ep1-21details.php)

I was wondering if someone would update me on what has happened on VM for the past few months. I love the show and started watching it from the beginning, but because of my busy schedule I've missed out on a lot of episodes. Luckily I was able to catch the season finale which was incredible. If someone could please update me that would be great. Especially with the whole Duncan/Veronica/Logan thing. Is there something wrong with Duncan?

How? They were arguing, and Logan kissed Veronica.OK, Logan and Veronica started dating, secretly.Until one night, they were making out, and about to enter Logan's house. But walked in on Logan's surprise birthday party, with all of Logan's friends. Duncan walked out, and started freaking out. Which I think brought us to the conclusion, that he has something wrong with him, medically. (he has to take pills). Anyways, so her and Logan went to some room in his house. He left her for a couple of minutes, and Veronica found wires, that led to a camera. She looked behind a cabinet, to reveal, that she was being taped.(Exactly what Lily did, as she was lying on the same bed, before.) SHe thought it was Logan, and ran out. That's why she was avoiding him, and well you know the rest.

What I couldn't believe, was that they just left you hanging. Who was at the front door? I hope they make a season two. That was my all time favorite show.

From what I understand it's definitely being renewed for a second season. My husband and I have enjoyed it very much! Having grown up reading Nancy Drew books, this reminded me of a modern-day Nancy Drew.

There are all sorts of theories about who was at the front door: Duncan, Logan, Wallace, Weevil...

Being that it was 3am when the doorbell rang, my two guesses hang on Duncan and Wallace.

It could have been Wallace, because Veronica called his mother up to have her visit her father in the hospital, so that could indicate Wallace was coming over to comfort her.

I personally think it was Duncan, mainly because of the way she looked when she told him about the results of her father's paternity test. She looked relieved when she opened the door, and said "I was hoping it was you." Considering all that she and Duncan have been through in the past 1-2 years (the season started with the year anniversary of Lily's murder, correct? Or was it only a few months?), Veronica and Duncan are now both free. Free to love, to heal, to remember Lily.

But that's just my guess. I'm looking forward to next season. This show was well-done. :)

I just love this show. It's intelligent, funny and very well written for a network TV show.

My vote is for Wallace at the door. :)

The studio is trying to bring out a season 1 DVD (no frills) by September so that people can catch up with the characters before the second season starts.

Show was a little watered-down at times, for me.

But, dayum Kristin Bell is HOT!

I know it's been a long time, but I feel a show as phenomenal as this deserves a thread revival. Unfortunately, the show was recently cancelled - I'll always savour the three seasons it produced though.

And yeah, Ms. Bell is damn, damn hot.

there *are* rumors that they'll either do a movie and/or go to a comic book format, a la "Buffy"...

one can only hope.
