Definitely. There are alternate story lines in each episode with her working on other stuff. Plus the writing and acting are great.

For anyone reading this thread (yeah, I only clicked into it for the discussion, too...) who is among those asking themselves whether they should be watching Veronica Mars, let me add another vote for yes, absolutely, starting yesterday. The series is not perfect, but it is astonishingly good: suspenseful, intelligent, emotional, funny -- it pushes almost every button, and pushes 'em good.

Another emphatic YES vote.

The problem with tuning into any episode from the current (second) season is that Lilly's killer is revealed in almost every episode. It's sort of an important plot point to everything that is going on now.

But even if you are spoiled for the "whodunit" aspect of season one, it's a wonderful show anyway and very much worth the effort. The writing and acting are top notch and I love rewatching my favorite S1 episodes even though I know how everything turns out in the end. I would get my hands on the S1 DVD asap and get caught up before I would watch season two.

Plus, I don't think you can appreciate what is going on very much in season two if you haven't seen season one. The plot and relationships are complicated and everything the characters went through in season one affects what is going on now.

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

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. :D

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.
