I'm not sure if that would even be possible. Rerun rights are currently held by SOAPnet, which is finally closing up at the end of the year. I doubt they'd be able to find a broadcast partner to replace them on that short of notice.

Not only that, but if they wanted to rerun the whole series, one episode per night, five nights a week, and have it end before the movie premiere, they'd have to start right now.

I backed at the $10 level (digital script copy) but today I received a shipping email with a tracking number. Anyone else? I wonder what they're sending me.

Yeah, I thought about that after I posted. But I went back to the kickstarter page and didn't see any reference to stickers at the $10 level. (ETA: found it -- "BONUS REWARD #2: Now that we added a $1 pledge level, we want to make sure our $10 backers don't feel under-appreciated, so I'm also excited to tell you that all backers at $10 and up will also receive an exclusive, limited edition set of Veronica Mars stickers.")

Seems pretty profligate to send stickers with a tracking number. It'd be cheaper just to send them by regular mail and if someone claims not to have received them, send them out again (I would think). But I won't look my gift stickers in the mouth.

I wore my VM shirt again yesterday. I met two people at Target, including the cashier, who were backers and happy to say so. I think I've met at least one backer every time I've worn the shirt.

Veronica Mars opening up Paley Fest this year, 1 day before the movie opens.

I am sure hoping to go.

I rewatched the show for the first time since right after it aired. It was better than I expected! I was afraid it would be better in memory than in real life. And season 2 and 3 were much better than I remembered. I think the binge watching helped, it definitely helps to not focus on weak points as you quickly move on to something good and don't have time to focus on the bad.

I actually liked season 1 a little less but mostly because I can't stand vapid Veronica or Lilly and I can't stand Veronica's mooning over Lilly who seemed to have no redeeming qualities.

This is the article where the trailer is *supposed* to be, but it isn't there yet:

Edit: they fixed it, it's up.

Interesting - the article suggests the movie is an AMC exclusive.
Quote:
The fan-funded flick hits theaters on Friday, March 14 in AMC Theaters in select markets across the U.S.
There's only one AMC theater in SE Wisconsin, and only 4 in the entire state. The one here is also a crap hole, if you ask me, compared to the Marcus Theaters.

Huh.... apparently that news came out at the beginning of December, and I missed it.

I hadn't see it, either. Disappointing. I have plenty of AMC options here, but they're not all that convenient (or nice).

My only theater chain is Regal so I'll be impatiently waiting for the digital download. :-(

But it looks amazing!

Piz vs. Logan? Please; that's not what the show, at its best, was about. The early episodes' voice-over introduced Logan as a psychotic, and that his role was, at his best, in the series, with an occasional redeeming feature.

Cover the midriff shooting? I hope the whole thing's not like that. Geeze. A person, for whatever reason, puts on a few pounds, who cares? Veronica can still be Veronica. Hell, even Veronica FAT (which she definitely was not remotely), would be interesting.

I didn't notice.

Regardless, she had a baby less that three months before shooting. Who can blame her for wanting to wear flattering clothes?

I have to say I'm feeling only lukewarm about the trailer. I liked some of the other advance footage, though, so I'll stay positive.

Are you kidding me? The "our story is epic" speech is one of the greatest scenes in VM history. My only issue with LoVe is Dohring is not a very good actor. If someone could have brought more substance to the role I think it would have been a lot better.

He's miles better than "Donut." (Duncan Kane, played by Teddy Dunn.)

I kind of agree. Most of the footage was the same as what we've seen before, but when edited together into a trailer, it felt really blah. I'm not sure the trailer captured the noir feel very well either.

Logan was such an awful person, not just to Veronica, but in general the first half of the series that the idea that she would fall for him seems far fetched.

But, I also had the same issue with Buffy and Spike.
