Veronica Mars Fodder

"Veronica Mars" is Back

As I sit here writing I am getting text message updates counting down the minutes until an all new Veronica Mars episode airs. Currently only 47 minutes stand between me and an hour of bliss. It's like New Year's Eve, minus the noisemakers...okay, maybe a few noisemakers and bottles of bubbly, but nothing too fancy.

After almost a month of Veronica deprivation us loyal fans deserve lots of news and excitement and that's exactly what we got. Here are the tidbits you missed if you didn't spend every day since November 28th googling Veronica Mars. Of course you didn't. Uhhh, I didn't either. I have much more important things to do with me time...right.

1) Big psych test Wednesday? Can't weasel your way out of Great Aunt Erma's Tuesday night bridge tournament at the home? Loose track of time performing human and animal sacrifices to the gods of all things CW/VMars in hopes of securing a fourth season? Have no fear, CW has finally moved into the television set-less age and decided to offer new VMars episodes on iTunes for $1.99 or free [woo!] via streaming video [hey, thanks Jake Kane] on CWtv. Finally a legal way to watch season three episodes over and over again the next day. Not that any of us would do that...

2) BuddyTV scored an exclusive interview with Rob Thomas recently and here's what they found out:
-When they heard the order had been cut from 22 to 20 episodes, the shows writers had to "drop a couple of story beats" they wanted to include originally and jam pack the conclusion of the "who killed Dean O'Dell" mystery into two rather than three episodes. Bummer.
-Thomas says he doesn't know if they have more than a 50/50 chance of a fourth season. Again, bummer.
-Tonight's episode (Show Me the Monkey) will feature another shout out from Snow White...err...Kristen Bell to her beloved pals in the animal kingdom.
-The Dean O'Dell mystery will end in a more Clue-like fashion rather than the typical dramatic "will Veronica meet her demise before ever even leaving godforsaken Neptune, CA?" finale. I love lead pipes, candlesticks and creepy butlers as much as the next girl, but mortal peril sort of suits Veronica. C'est la vie.

3) TV Guide named Veronica Mars one of the Best Shows of 2006. Duh, TV Guide. "It may not generate huge ratings, but this underdog series deserves high praise for its originality and clever writing," writes Angel Cohn. "Veronica's got a lot to offer, if only more people would give her a chance." Who knows, maybe the semi-pitiful shout out will garner more viewers. One can only hope.

4) The scarily up-to-date fan website Neptunesite ran around the Winter 2007 TCA Press Tour harassing the CW bigwigs and drooling over VMars cast members (okay, I cannot prove there was drool involved, only assume wholeheartedly) and scooped up some interesting info.
-Most interestingly, Dawn Ostroff (CW President) revealed that the last five eps of season three will be self-contained mysteries in an attempt to attract viewers who aren't familiar with all the backstory. [Note to those viewers: I have seasons 1&2 and frequently rent them out to/force them upon newbies.]
-Ostroff also swears the CW is happy with the show's ratings. Prove it, Dawn. Renew those contracts!
-Unless you are a fan of the Pussycat Dolls (please, if you are, keep it to yourself) you'll have to find something else to do with your Tuesday nights from March 8th to May 8th as Veronica is booted off the air for the reality show about finding a new Pussycat Doll or something. I stopped reading and started demolishing living room furniture when I saw the words eight week hiatus.
-Chris Lowell (aka the lovable Piz) assures that Piznarski will "fall hard" but grow some backbone in the upcoming episodes. Oh, no backbone, thaaat's why he was dancing all crazy-like at the frat party.
