That Veronica Mars...she's pretty hot.

I really dig Veronica Mars. She's pretty hot, spunky, and oh so good looking; plus she's smart and witty. The ideal package.

...and Kristen Bell is actually 25, so it's okay to think of her as "hot, spunky, and oh so good looking" without feeling like (too much of) a dirty old man.

Kristen Bell is stunning, there's no doubt about that. Wow.

But as a straight female, I love her more for her extraordinary talent more than her looks. She's an amazingly gifted actress. And she can sing, too! I love her in Veronica Mars, but she's got a huge career ahead of her. She was memorable in Deadwood, great in a small role in Spartan (which I otherwise hated) and she was fantastic in Gracie's Choice, a Lifetime movie that I never would have watched if it weren't for her, but it was actually pretty good if only because she elevates the material.

That's from a recent photoshoot for Giant magazine. But wait, there's more. The new Giant photos are at the bottom.

Have you rented the season one DVD and started from the beginning? The Pilot sets up a lot of complicated backstory and I think VM is hard to get into midstream, but it is well worth the effort. I think it's one of my favorite shows of all time. Seriously. I had a couple of friends who tried an episode here and there and couldn't get into it, but once I loaned them my DVDs and they saw the first few eps, they were totally hooked.

The S1 set is $45, a little more than id spend on a show i know llittle aboot and may not like. Any suggestions?

I would suggest getting a trial membership at Netflix and renting the first Veronica Mars DVD asap during the trial period. But if you don't want to do that . . . I tried sending you a private message but it bounced back b/c your inbox is full.

If you like shows like Buffy, Alias, and Gilmore Girls, then VM is probably something you would enjoy. Maybe Twin Peaks, for the murder mystery and dark tone. If you hate all those shows, then VM may not be for you. But Kristen Bell is a superstar. She alone makes the show great.

And don't just take my word for it -- Veronica Mars made every Top 10 list this year: TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, Time magazine, the American Film Institute, USA Today, MSNBC, the Chicago Tribune, the Phila. Inquirer, the Village Voice, the Boston Phoenix, and just about every other list I've seen b/c I lost count. VM and Lost seem to be the only consensus picks on every major critic's list, at least the ones I've seen.

I don't like alias, but I never got into it either because it was on when stuff I watched was on other channels. Dont like gilmore girls alot, dont like buffy.

I do however love Lost, Everwood, etc.

If Im not mistaken my brother has a sub to blockbuster mayeb they will have it and he will get the 1st disc for me to check out... need ot ask him i guess

I was kinda hoping to get into it recently since I have an HDTV now and can watch in HD. but until Im caught up at least partly it doesnt make sense and i hvae no clue who is who.

I need to have a year to do nothing but watch older shows I missed and catch up!

Definitely. There are alternate story lines in each episode with her working on other stuff. Plus the writing and acting are great.

For anyone reading this thread (yeah, I only clicked into it for the discussion, too...) who is among those asking themselves whether they should be watching Veronica Mars, let me add another vote for yes, absolutely, starting yesterday. The series is not perfect, but it is astonishingly good: suspenseful, intelligent, emotional, funny -- it pushes almost every button, and pushes 'em good.

Another emphatic YES vote.

The problem with tuning into any episode from the current (second) season is that Lilly's killer is revealed in almost every episode. It's sort of an important plot point to everything that is going on now.

But even if you are spoiled for the "whodunit" aspect of season one, it's a wonderful show anyway and very much worth the effort. The writing and acting are top notch and I love rewatching my favorite S1 episodes even though I know how everything turns out in the end. I would get my hands on the S1 DVD asap and get caught up before I would watch season two.

Plus, I don't think you can appreciate what is going on very much in season two if you haven't seen season one. The plot and relationships are complicated and everything the characters went through in season one affects what is going on now.
