I don't know if I need spoilers, but just in case...
Spoiler:
Just because it happened so suddenly, with no warning -- and isn't he evil, 'n stuff?? Oh, and when she was confessing to her deputy-boyfriend she said something about making out with someone she "hated". I guess I just didn't pick up on their chemistry, or something!

Ah, okay, I get it now. (Although I saw warnings fairly early on, I get that not everybody saw them. They were subtle, like many of the emotional undercurrents on VM.)

Spoiler:
Imho, when she told Leo she "hated" Logan, it was mainly past tense at that point and she was trying to explain why she was a "trainwreck" and he was better off without her. But the fact that she dumped sweet Leo, who she liked a lot, told me that she really had the hots for Logan in a big way because if she was following her head instead of her heart, she'd have stuck with Leo. She knew Logan was bad news, but she couldn't help herself.


Only using spoiler tags for those who have not had the good fortune to see all of season one of VM yet. And what are you waiting for? See Kristen Bell in a short skirt! Lots of them! And a bikini!

And, for some reason, she has new breasts this season. Not sure why she got them, but I chuckled when:

Spoiler:
she went on TV to investigate the psychic, after telling Wallace's "girlfriend" about using the breast-enhancement cream, while her breasts were clearly bigger this season than last. It doesn't work for me when other characters on the show are making "flat-chested" jokes at her expense when clearly, she's no longer flat-chested.


Oh well, still a great show and she's still damned attractive.

It's called a padded push-up bra. Maybe Kristen is getting self-conscious about all the "Veronica is flat-chested" jokes?

Spoiler:
In addition to the psychic incident, there was another comment by that dude from the fightin Fitzpatricks. He said something about Veronica not needing plastic surgery, "well, aside from the obvious," as he looked at her chest. Evil Madison Sinclair also made fun of her chest at the slumber party at Gia's house, and of course there was the classic "Flat? Just as God made me," from season one.


Veronica is so pretty and smart and generally self-assured, I think it's the only thing they can think of to have people make fun of her about. She's regularly getting insulted by people, so the writers have to come up with something more than "your car is crappy" and "you're poor." (But I agree that it's funny that the jokes are more frequent this year, even though her boobs appear bigger than last year.)

They are the perfect size for a girl who is 5'1" and weighs about 90 lbs.

Seriously I was taken aback with how tiny she is. I would have guessed her to be at least 5'5".

Even better than S1 so far. The first season, once it hit midpoint or so, built momentum like a freight train towards its conclusion. But I thought the first half (well, maybe third), while the show was still new and trying to find its footing a little, was a bit uneven. Not so in season two -- almost every episode has been quite strong, sometimes astonishingly so.

I finally got to meet Kristen last weekend at the Veronica Mars screening in Austin, and she didn't disappoint. Smart, funny, incredibly kind and all-around great gal. And even more stunning in person than she is onscreen, if you can believe that. Yes, the girl is hot.

I got to talk to her for a few minutes about a few different topics and we were talking about some of her past work when Rob Thomas interrupted our conversation to say that you couldn't talk about Kristen's work without mentioning Pootie Tang. I get the impression he kids her a lot about that movie being on her resume (which she's apparently in for only a few seconds) and she's a good sport about it. She said, of course, no matter what I do, there will always be Pootie Tang.

OK why in the world did I not know about this? She was in my freaking state? 3 hours away from me? Now I am just mad.

Sorry.

She was in Austin for the whole weekend doing all sorts of VM-related stuff. The VM screening was at the Alamo Drafthouse and it was held on two nights. See photos here.

If you're a VM fan, I wrote a recap in two parts, with links to more photos. (If you're not a VM fan it will be very boring and will probably make no sense.)

Rob Thomas did most of the talking at the screening and Q&A, but Kristen got pretty chatty at a couple of points. Then she talked to fans and signed autographs for what seemed like hours.

BTW - Magnolia where are you in those pics? You should have an avatar. Becuase one I don't know if you are male or female. If you are male we can lust after KB together. If you are female we can still lust it will just be ultra hot.

Heh. I don't post photos of myself on the internet. But I do have some fabulous photos of Kristen, some with myself. My friend I was with took lots of photos and you can see my hand. (In the closeup photo of Kristen, I am standing right there, next to the photographer. KB and I had quite a nice chat, and I was taking my time moving on to the boys.)

And I'm female and straight. And yes, I have a total girl crush on KB and I'm not afraid to admit it. She's adorable. But it's her performance as Veronica that I love most (although she's fantastic in everything she's ever done, something I took the opportunity to tell her in person, which led to the Pootie Tang comment).

You need to read a little closer. Magnolia has said in the past that she's a female i the 18-24 demo, and that her lusting after KB is purely platonic.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.

Agreed, though, about the need for an avatar.

ETA: or, what Magnolia herself just said... (damn slow typing)

I never said anything about being under 24. I wish. No, I'm older than Kristen by a few years but not by so much that I can't imagine us as gal pals, hanging out and shopping and stuff.

She's really an amazing talent. I had a girl crush on Kate Winslet once, but I've never liked a TV actress this much. (Okay, I thought Jennifer Garner kicked ass the first season of Alias, but that ended when she dumped cutie-pie Scott Foley).

Kristen's intelligence is obvious in her performance but she was both smart and hilarious in person. It was especially funny when she called her boyfriend Kevin an a-hole very loudly in front of a crowd of 200 or so people. Heh.

Imagine how I feel! I'm under two hours away. I had no idea! It was my big chance to steal her away from you, too.

Yes, I did, and he was lovely.

But in all honesty, the people I most wanted to meet were Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell and they were both great. Very down-to-earth, funny, friendly, approachable and very appreciative of the fan support for VM.

Rob Thomas has known a lot of ups and downs in showbiz (check out his site for hilarous recaps of his failures), and it's obvious he is enjoying having a show that people watch and love, however few in number they may be.

I was asking because when I met the cast the people in front of me (girls) were very excited to see Percy and there was like 5 of them. So the line stalled and I got to talk to Jason for a couple minutes. I would have been happier if it would have stalled in front of Kristen but no luck. I found Jason to be really cool and very nice. Just kind of shocking because at that point all you saw was him being an a-hole. And I know it's acting but when it is the only impression you have of someone you tend to form an opinion. But Jason and I talked for a couple minutes and he was asking all kinds of questions about Dallas and he wanted to stay because Styx was in town but he had to get home.

I'm sad. Last night, I popped in the last disc for S1, and found that it only had 2 episodes on it. And I devoured them quickly.

Need a season 2 box now.

Jason is so completely unlike Logan that it makes me appreciate his acting talent that much more. He's more reserved than Kristen, but also down-to-earth and obviously enjoys talking about acting and his work on VM. He talked a bit about developing the character of Logan and finding the right notes to play at the audition. But even though he's smart, he's also very much a Socal kid, and his speech patterns are similar to Logan's: lots of "dudes" and "rads." And words that can't be repeated here.

Kristen has more in common with Veronica than Jason does Logan, but she's much nicer and friendlier than V of course. She also comes across in person as being much older than Jason. She's very mature and poised beyond her years, and he seems like a young kid barely out of high school. I think it's the difference in their experience level: she studied theater at NYU and has been on Broadway with Liam Neeson and Laura Linney, and for Jason, VM is the first big acting thing he's ever done.

I think he's a little in awe of her, honestly. He obviously has huge admiration for her and gushed about her quite a bit. (Then again, everyone gushes about her, because how can you not?)

I was thinking about the Marsathon last night and what I would have asked if there. The one thing I kept coming back to was 'Spartan'. I am huge Mamet fan and would probably have beat her down about working with him. Also I would have found a way to get some questions in about David Milch and working on 'Deadwood'.

I find the original a lot funnier and more enjoyable.

It is so over-the-top ludicrous and unintentionally funny that it is really a scream!

I saw the new "musical" version with Kristen Bell. While I enjoyed her performance in it, the musical appeared to be trying too hard to be funny, ironic, dark, morbid, and gross.

IOW, its humor seemed "forced".

I didn't like it (other than an opportunity to see Kristen Bell in one more thing).

Anyone see the trailer to her new movie Pulse during VM last night?

It actually looks really good.
