Watch Veronica Mars...

Damn, does this show just keep getting better...Watch it !!!! I know it's up against "lost" but I now tape Lost and watch Veronica..Okay, that's not true, I tape Lost and I TiVo Veronica, but that's because TV plays WAAAY too large a role in my life...But anyway, Veronica Mars is the best show on television that is not The Simpsons or Arrested Development...For those who haven't heard of it, in a nutshell: it's about a high school detective, but it's soooooo much more than that...There is a season long mystery that slowly unravels as the weeks go past, and then there is the case for each week...This year, there are actually two or three long term mysteries(but they are no doubt all to end up connected) and yes, it gets a bit far fetched at times, but it's so well written, and the characters are all so well formed and flawed and human, that you just don't care...And it now has Alyson Hannigan and Charisma Carpenter( both of Buffy The Vampire Slayer- another great TV show with a kickass female teen lead) as recurring characters..It just kicks major ass...I implore you, give it a try, and if Wednesday night at 9 (8 central) really doesn't work, than they rerun tonight's episode on Sunday at 9, I think. Please, do yourself a favor and check this show out, you will not be disappointed. And BTW, the first season(we are in the 2nd)is now out on DVD, so check that out as well- you will not regret it. Oh yeah, it's on UPN.
