The Best Show on Television
For those of you who would rather take Joss Whedon's word over mine, which is pretty much everyone including myself, he raves about the show on his blog here and reviews the first season DVD here. He'll also be making a guest appearance as a rental-car manager. Show creator, Rob Thomas (not of Matchbox 20 fame, thank God), talks about Joss' walk on and Kevin Smith's here.
And for you Buffy fans, the show has recurring roles played by Charisma Carpenter (hot!) and Alyson Hannigan. I also love that Tina Majorino (of Napoleon Dynamite fame) and Steve Guttenberg have awesome recurring characters.
After such an amazing first season, I thought the first two episodes of this season were okay at best. And by okay, I mean still better than almost every other show out there. But this past week's episode was finally a return to old-fashioned Veronica Mars genius.
Things I loved: Duncan and Logan finally fighting, Mr. Casablancas' shredding scene, Lamb and VM's staredown.
Things I did not love: Awkwardly long karaoke scene. I understand it was a cameo of the Dandy Warhols' lead singer, but at least have him sing something not entirely in falsetto.
Rob Thomas has his own website, where you can download the original pilot script, DVD commentary, and check out some of his past projects like the quickly cancelled Cupid.
Here are some other great VM websites:
*EDIT: Also Veronica Mars gets Punk'd. Be cool, soda pop.
And a pretty funny screencap biography of Logan and Duncan.
