Veronica Mars sure is hot. She's also a liar, a thief, and a few other bad things. I couldn't date a woman like her for long. She opens her mouth and the truth doesn't always come out.

But she uses her powers for good and not for evil...

Veronica is a badass who doesn't always "play nice" but she's always serving a greater good, or at least thinks she is. Just like most of the great fictional anti-heroes. Heck, Jack Bauer tortures people and Jack Bristow shoots someone between the eyes and the audience cheers. But Veronica plants a bug to get information and it's all, "ooh, she's not very nice, is she?"

VM is a detective show. Weren't Magnum and Rockford always breaking into places and going undercover (i.e., lying) and doing other bad stuff? Isn't that what private eyes on TV always do? Dave and Maddie lied to people every week to get information.

But back to the topic at hand . . . Kristen looks stunning on her Maxim cover. That's quite a coup for her and I think it can only serve as great, um, exposure. If it sells some tickets to Pulse and maybe brings in a few new viewers to VM, then that's even better.

Anyone know what the merging of WB and UPN will do to the respective programs on those channels. We all know what happened when Buffy jumped ship and went to UPN and Angel stayed on WB, both programs suffered (at least that's my opinion).

While I have to admit I skipped pages 2 and 4, there is a comment on the first page bunching Buffy, Alias, and Gilmore Girls together. There aren't three shows with female leads that are more different IMO. Can anyone explain why this is an accurate comparison? I don't actually watch Gilmore Girls so that could be part of the disconnect.

I'd call it Buffy, Twin Peaks and Gilmore Girls, myself.

Buffy because of the smart, rapid-fire dialog, the bright strong heroine who always beats the bad guy but doesn't always get the guy. Twin Peaks because it's a little on the dark and freaky side and Gilmore Girls because of the really strong relationship between Veronica and her Dad.

There is a whole thread discussing this. It looks like VM will be paired with Gilmore Girls, probably on Tuesday nights, but no official announcement will be made until April or May.

I started watching VM because I heard it described as a little bit of Buffy and Alias, since those are two of my favorite shows ever. I see Veronica as a smarter Buffy and a funnier Sydney. But unlike Syd and Buffy, VM has no ability to kick anyone's ass in a physical sense. She has only her brain as her secret weapon against bad guys. And her wit. And her detective gadgets.

Both Buffy and Alias have strong young female leads who don't take crap from anyone, so that is the obvious similarity. Also, both shows feature strong father-daughter relationships: Buffy and Giles (who served the father-mentor role) and Sydney and Jack, who are estranged at times but we know that Jack still always has her back.

The only similarity between Gilmore Girls and VM imho is the witty dialogue and pop culture references. I guess one could say the parent-child relationship is sort of a similarity. Unlike Jack and Giles, Keith Mars is also a pretty hip and funny dad, so he's a bit like Lorelai in that way. He gets plenty of good lines, while Giles and Jack aren't known for their senses of humor. Otoh, Keith can be pretty badass when the occasion calls for it, so he combines the best of all possible worlds. Imho, the Veronica-Keith relationship is one of the best aspects of VM and is the heart of the show.

I know Tuesdays suck because of House and TAR and all, but every time slot is going to have some big show that is a huge hit. Everybody complains about VM being up against Lost now on Wed nights and on Thursdays, there would be complaints about Smallville, Survivor, etc.

Back to "Veronica Mars is hot" . . . MSN has a new Kristen Bell photo gallery. The pictures aren't new, but the "In Focus" gallery is new, calling KB an "up and coming" actress.

I guess MSN is expecting Pulse to get a lot of press or something? I don't know that I'd call an actress starring as the lead title character of a one-hour network drama in its second season to be "up and coming." I'd say she's already there. Isn't that what actors dream of, to get the lead role in a network TV series or studio movie? I know VM flies below the radar, but still, she's the freaking lead.

even though KB is the lead on a tv show, i think they call her up and comming because VM isn't exactly drawing a huge crowd. to most of the country, she's a relative unknown. and i don't think pulse is going to change that. from the trailers it looks like a pretty crappy horror movie. i like KB a lot... but no way I'm paying 10 bucks to see that crap.

man, i envy anyone who has met KB. even more so to the people who took pics with her. u guys are lucky. hopefully one day, the cast and crew will go to comicon in san diego, i try to go every year and usually get to see a bunch of celebs (went to the battlestar galactica one and saw boomer!). but i'm even more jealous of my friend who is a masseuse. her company was hired to work at some tv event and i guess some cast and crew from VM were there. cos my friend was chatting about it and she says she gave a massage to some blonde actress who plays Veronica something on tv... I couldn't believe my what I was hearing! my friend didn't know i was a fan, but she did tell me that KB was really short. they didn't chat, she just came in, sat on the massage type chair thingy and my friend gave her a quick massage and that was it. oh man... i would have loved to have been in my friend's shoes...

so do you guys think duncan is out of the show for good? how are they gonna bring him back now that he's got a kid if he does come back?

So the pics are hot? I'll have to take your word for it, b/c I can't access them. Would it be weird for a straight chick to buy Maxim for the girly pics? Heh. I will pretend I'm buying it for my bf.

According to Rob Thomas, Joel Silver has been pushing Kristen to do a photo shoot for Maxim for months, but she was reluctant to do it. Then she did Pulse and Harvey Weinstein wanted her to do it to help promote the movie, and she finally relented.

I have no problem with her doing it b/c it's sort of expected of young actresses to do this sort of thing, but I like that KB was not jumping all over the idea. She's a "serious actress" who shouldn't have to do it, but these Maxim covers do get a lot of attention. Anything that gives her a higher profile and gets her more work in features has to be a good thing. She should be getting the kind of roles that Scarlett Johanssen is getting, b/c KB acts circles around her.

I'd certainly agree with that. I like SJ but I do think KB is 1. Better looking, 2. A better actress and 3. She can sing and dance.

Agree with that about KB and SJ. SJ has a nicer body though

A lot of these actresses pose for Maxim and it's ilk to get out of the "highschool" mode.

I mean, KB is a 25 year old woman who people think is 17-18. It can't hurt to remind the movie industry that she's a woman, va va voom.
