    There are newer threads, but there are not better threads.

    The movie picks up 9 years after the show ends, yes.
    I obviously don't have any inside info on the new season, but I'm going to guess that the movie won't be required viewing per se. I'm going to assume they'll have some very quick expository dialogue to summarize certain key pieces of information from the movie.

    That said, I'd still try and watch the movie if you can, as it'll better explain what happened between the original run of episodes and now, and how certain characters came to be where/how they are.

    In rewatching VM recently, I was amazed how many big stars (big today, not necessarily then) appeared in the show! Most of the special person of the week seem to have moved on to do something big since being on the show. Shows you how good Rob Thomas was at casting...

    Signed up for my free month of Hulu last week in prep for the S4 drop. Gotta say, the Hulu app still sucks compared to Netflix.

    Just finished S1 rewatch last night... still great obviously!

    I laughed a lot at the dialog between Mac and the other tech student in S01E18 (won't give away plots on this thread) where he was saying how great Ubuntu was, referring to Warty Warthog (!!) and they got into an argument about font scaling... ah, those were the days!

    We'll see how far I get before the 26th...

    For those who aren't aware, KB (well, KB's voice) is starring in a new animated musical series on Apple TV+ called Central Park. I started a thread here for anyone who wants to chat about it. It's KB! Singing! Need I say more?

    Central Park on Apple TV+ (spoilers for season one)

    I am rewatching Veronica Mars with my daughter and my interest has been re-invigorated in the series and its characters...

    Can anyone tell me if the 2014 series "Play It Again, Dick" is worth my time?

    IMO, it's not. It's basically Ryan Hansen playing a fictionalized version of himself (that is almost as dim-witted and self-absorbed as his Dick Casablancas character). Kirsten Bell and Rose McIver play small roles, as do a number of other VM actors.

    KB and Rose McIver in the same show? That is something.

    This has been interpreted, thankfully narrowly, that she/they are saying that Black people/POC/mixed background people somehow necessarily have an identifiably non-White voice characteristic, and that itself is a racist POV on their part. But that's not what she/they are saying at all.

    It's about a missed opportunity; they didn't immediately see that, and now they do and they're making a change. It's not a big deal; the original casting wasn't racist and the subsequent taking advantage of an opportunity isn't racist either.

    Well, are there stats on black voice over artists portraying white people, vs the opposite. Because if it's what I think they are it's a little racist.
