Veronica Mars

FINALLY got time to watch the second season opener for Veronia Mars. Goddamn! It is one fine show. Really hit it's straps, and (to quote Joss Whedon) "big emotion, I mean BIG.."

Oh, and in case you didn't know, Joss went absolutely gaga over Veronica Mars, and is now the biggest and best known fan of the show. And with reason... this is rare TV. And let me tell you, Kristen Bell is the most charismatic, engaging and HOT lead in a TV show for aaages.. well, since Caroline Dhavernas in Wonderfalls, anyways.

Update : Watched the third episode last night. All I can say is - OMFG!! The funny has fallen to the side to be replaced with the dark and scary. Very dark. This show is going from strength to strength... I don't know how the new problem can be solved, short of the Mars' going into Witness Protection... ooh, and talk about stunt casting. Really didn't like Charisma Carpenter as the "hot mom"... Cordy in a bikini is just WRONG. But Steve Gutenberg as the too nice Mayor (to be)?! Love him! Overtones of Richard Wilkins III. Creepy. Kevin Smith as a freaky convenience store owner? Even better. But JOSS WHEDON as a used car salesman??? Heaven!
