More praise for Veronica in a review of the season one DVD set.

Quote:
Bell. The Best. Easily the best actress to come out of TV in, like, forever.
Yes. I don't think I've ever loved any actress on TV this much. I thought Jennifer Garner was good the first season of Alias, but Kristen Bell shows even more range as Veronica, because Sydney Bristow was never much with the comic timing. Then again, Veronica can't kick anyone's ass in the physical sense. She's more about the cutting remarks.

And apparently, you guys think she's cute.

She's able to deliver those snappy, rapid-fire, intelligent lines. I think she must be pretty smart to be able to do that. And intelligence is more stimulating than any physical quality, in my opinion. I wouldn't kick her out of... the library.

Maybe, but maybe not. I know that Amanda Tapping can rattle off the science-speak like she was born to it when it's scripted, but in interviews, she comes across as kind of a ditz.

I don't know about Amanda Tapping, but there is no doubt that Kristen Bell is pretty darn smart. She brings so much nuance and depth to even the most inconsequential lines, and it's not just that she's good with the rapid fire comebacks and the comic timing, although she's superb at that too.

Plus, she did study drama at NYU's Tisch School of the Performing Arts and her first major role was in The Crucible on Broadway alongside Liam Neeson and Laura Linney (and taking that role is the reason she didn't actually graduate from NYU). KB is no dummy.

She can come across as a little "ditzy" in some talk show interviews, but that's what is expected of young actresses on talk shows. The producers want them to talk about stupid crap that makes them seem "fun and flirty" not serious and introspective. I saw KB on Punk'd and she gave the guy so much attitude she seemed very Veronicaish. She was hilarious.

I met Kristen Bell and the rest of the cast too. They did an appearance last April. I was SOOOOO disappointed in her.

I already posted this story but I will repeat it.

They all showed up about half an hour late. I wasn't upset about that. However, they all walked in together and the rest of the cast was smiling and waving at the crowd. Kristen was talking on her cell phone with her down. Then they all got to the table and the rest of the cast was greeting people and hugging them and taking pictures etc. Kristen howver, was too busy text messaging someone and getting up and talking to some guy (bf?) and showing him the text messages.

I just felt that there was no reason why she couldn't have spent two hours of her time greeting fans since that is what she was there to do. The rest of the cast was awesome. I did get to talk to her and she was very nice. I wish I had a pic but I had a camera problem.

Amanda has said in interviews that she was something of a nerd in high school. So she can effortlessly flow from science geek to ditz and back again.

aadam101, sorry you had a bag experience mine could not have been better.

They all arrived on time and everyone was very nice and cordial. While Kristen Bell and Enrico were waiting on fans to come to them they seemed to be having a very good time making each other laugh. I ended up behind 5 girls that were very happy to see Percy Dags III and that made a stop down for me to chat with Jason Dohring for about 5 minutes. He was so cool and was asking a lot of questions about Dallas. He kept saying how he wanted to stay and see Styx play that night but he had to get back to LA. Kristen was very nice and had a big smile and was thanking everyone for taking time out to come see them and watching and supporting the show. I told her thanks and asked her to pass along the same to Rob Thomas.

You can also watch trailer for her next movie over at MSN.

There is a scene in the trailer that makes me very excited to see the movie.

I still love Kristen and the show but I wish the experience had bee a little better.

I really wish this show would find a bigger audience. The whole time we standing in line (it was in a mall) people kept walking by and asking why we standing in line. When we said "Veronica Mars" about 90% of them responded with "Who's that?" They were still a few hundred people and I did get the entire casts autographs

She is delicious.

I like the show, but I don't know if it's strong enough for me to watch if that lovely creature wasn't on it.

Well around here, the easiest way would be for there to be an actual upn station. There is nothing close by to pick up on the antenna and the cable company wont carry it. This, of course, is the same cable company that tells me they'll have broadband internet in '3 months' for the last 6 years. I have to have a friend tape it and send it to me. The things we fans will do.

Heh. I just ordered it. Based on the links from this thread.

So it's NOT all about the pictures! Really, it's not!

I just finished downloading and watching the first season... it was fantastic!

Perhaps someone can clarify one thing for me?

Spoiler:
Was VM faking the whole relationship with Logan? At first I thought so, but then later I wasn't so sure...?

Oh no, it was the real deal. Now start watching from the beginning this season, and you'll see where it goes (went).

cmontyburns answered this already (:sniff:), but I'm curious what would make you think that in the first place. I can't imagine what would lead someone to that conclusion.

I love Veronica Mars and think she is totally hot BUT when Charmisa Carpenter walked out on the last show dressed to kill, it was an eye opener. Tall and buxom compared to short and petite.

I meant "sniff" meaning that I'm upset about the word "went" in your answer . . . if that makes any sense. I'm upset about what happened with V/L on the show -- not that you answered the question.

And I'm not a VM expert, just a huge fan of Kristen Bell and the show (although making multiple DVDs to hook my friends probably has made me into somewhat of an "expert" as a side effect).
