Veronica Mars


Every once in a while a show comes on the TV that I hear good things about, but I am never able to find the time to watch. Shows that I think I may like. There’s only so many hours in the day, and I have to write. So I missed Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I think I might have enjoyed. There are several others I won’t bother to list. Having seen this movie I will now add Veronica Mars to the list of regrets. This is smart and funny. I find Kristen Bell very appealing, both in The Good Place and Heroes.

The story behind the movie is amazing, too. The TV show was not a ratings success, but the fan following was fanatical, sort of like the audience for Orphan Black. When the series was cancelled and the studio passed on this movie sequel written by the show’s creator, Rob Thomas, they went to Kickstarter, and raised over $5,000,000! You can still make a good film for only five million, though those days may be passing.
