Just between you and me, I have a new favorite show. Like some of my other favorite shows (Arrested Development in particular) it is already off the air. I came across the show in a Best Buy flyer where, for this week only, Seasons 1 and 2 are going for $14.99 each. Regularly priced at $48.99. Frugal me did some quick reading and decided Season 1 was worth the investment. Watched the first episode and instantly knew I had to own Season 2.
The show? Veronica Mars.
It rocks! I never understood 90210. I appreciated My So Called Life but never got into it. Many incarnations of Degrassi are cool, but mostly just because I love Canada. The OC is like licking a rusty razor blade. Nothing at all enjoyable about the experience. Veronica Mars has a distinct, classic noir feel. It has teen angst, but in a non-annoying way. For real. That first episode was tight and pretty well-written. Don’t laugh. It was good. Completely unrealistic, but highly entertaining.
