Over the weekend I rewatched the first two seasons of Veronica Mars. I am a fan of rewatching series, especially ones that are so engrossing you miss a lot the first time through because you are just trying to absorb as much as possible. There is much to love about the series so i will limit my praises to the main character and the show’s namesake. I want to be Veronica Mars when I grow up. I have got her stature (petite!) and about 1/6th of her sass (enough that a random person called me a “sassy pants”), but that is about it. It is pretty rare that ladies get a role model who isn’t boy crazy, has a male BFF who she has no romantic interest in, and who sometimes makes mistakes. Perfect ladies are boring ladies. The Kickstarter campaign to get the Veronica Mars movie off the ground received a lot of coverage online and I think it is a perfect example of how much the fans loved the show and its heroine. This is just to say that if you have not seen the three seasons of Veronica Mars, run out to the local video store (if those still exist) or hit up Amazon. Soon enough you’ll be singing along the theme song: “A long time ago/we used to be friends….” My siblings and I have the song memorized.
P.S. I love Logan Echolls–what can I say? I love a bad boy with a heart. It all started with Han Solo and Danny Zuko. Glad to know my tastes haven’t changed.
Any other V. Mars fans out there? What shows do you watch over and over again?
