Veronica Mars is back, fuckers! Why? I have no fucking idea! Did I love the original? You bet! Does this revival make me cringe? Sure does!
If it was anyone else than Rob Thomas, I would be hesitant about this news. Bringing Lost Boys to TV? Ehhh. But dude has brought us both Veronica Mars *and* Party Down (*and* iZombie, which I Haven’t watched), so I’m inclined to believe this could be good. Will I watch it? No. Could it be good? Yes.
Oh man. Back in the Veronica Mars days, I had a most massive of crushes on Kristen Bell. And I loved the shit out of Parks & Rec. So the two of them joining forces for a new show on NBC? That’s enough for me to actually turn on that channel.
Veronica Mars is getting a spin-off show? I didn’t see this coming! But then again, I failed as a fan and I didn’t see the movie either. Said spin-off has VM’s creator Rob Thomas involved, so I’m automatically intrigued. The fact that it’s a weird, meta-fictional take on a digital branch of the CW? Has me really interested. Just how odd shall it be?!
Whoop, whoop! That’s the sound of the police! Or rather the witty, teenage gumshoe Veronica Mars back on the scene. But she ain’t a teenager no more, and this ain’t the small screen. Boom! See! ‘Cause it’s the trailer for the Veronica Mars movie. I’m fucking stoked! Stoked! Watching the trailer reminds me of how much I used to love this show. And how long ago the show was on. Fuck, I’m getting old. Darkness, darkness. Beautiful Kristen Bell. More darkness.
A couple of weeks ago I was yanking purple-tip to Almost Human’s premiere. It was jazzy, I was jazzed, my underoos were sticky but stern. (What does that even mean?) In the middle of my fluids-flinging, our own incalculably talented J-Hawtsauce pointed out that he had a hard time swallowing the episode orders that network television demanded. The good sir lamented the puffed-up nature that having to bring twenty-four (or so) episodes to bare every season can produce on a show.
At the time I claimed that I didn’t have a problem with what were essentially procedural television shows with a science-fiction tinge. After all, I love the X-Files, Fringe titillates me, and since I’m lazy and don’t feel like thinking I’ll nominate Battlestar Galactica as (a stretch of) an example.
Monsters of the week episodes rule! (Sort of.)
Woah baby! You want the first clip from the Veronica Mars movie? Of course you do! Unless you don’t. But you should.
First footage from the Veronica Mars movie? Yes, please, and thank you.
Man. I fucking needed this today. The local sports team lost one of its biggest players. Summer unemployment is looming. Google Reader is dying. Talk about stabbing my rot-gut. It appears I am not to fully despair, however. The Veronica Mars movie lives. Lives damn well. Today, series creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell launched a Kickstarter to fund the son of a bitch, and ten hours later the goal had been surpassed. Well done, my friends.
I didn’t know about it, but there was a fucking Party Down marathon at the Alamo Drafthouse. It appears that everything awesome occurs in that place. Well fuck. Out of this Drafthouse came not just what I assume was endless fun and excitement with the cast and shiz, but the news that there could be a Party Down movie. Lawd don’t tease me, lawd don’t tease me!
