I am only giving this movie a 1 for the great cast, though I can't imagine what any of them were thinking. This movie was horrible

i never get tired of this show. i love it. i've watched them all like 10 times and i still keep going. great show. sad that it's gone, but i love what's there :) definitely worth a look. keeps getting better and better throughout. many critics have hailed the first season of Veronica Mars as the best single season of TV ever. :) i haven't watched enough TV to really say that's accurate, but i do love it. i love season 2 as well. i love season 3 less, but still like it and still watch it :) seriously, try it... fall in love with it :) it's witty, it's sexy, it's well written i would love to share it with anyone who will watch. i wish Netflix Canada would bring it back :(

The show started off good, and then its like everyone was fired and they hired a bunch of soap opera writers to save money.. its nothing but drama and not even good drama.. everyone lies and cheats and fights each other but in the next episode they are all friends again.. this show could have been great if the stupid writers didn't keep it confined to just the students at the school.. its just so unbelievable its hard to watch.. and most of the actors are terrible, and the good actors shine a spot light on the bad ones making them that much worse.. no wonder the show was canceled.. i bet if they moved it to day time drama hour it would flourish.. honestly so much drama and not much of anything else.. maybe a laugh once a season.. and i can't say i cared enough about any of the characters to ever get sad they die.. you can tell this show was made on a budget, i guess that should be taken into account when watching..

I watched Veronica Mars quite sporadically when it was on E4, usually after school. A couple of years ago, I decided to order the box set and watch it from start to finish. It was even better than I could ever anticipate. First of all, it's a brilliant neo-noir. The dialogue and voice over narration is smart, quick and full of irony and humour. And the best part is, it is all coming from the mouth of a cute and little blonde. You totally buy it because she's charismatic, compelling and intelligent but best of all she's flawed. Sometimes she makes terrible choices and gets it wrong. I have to say that the show's main strength is Veronica as a character, played wonderfully by Kristen Bell- this role was meant for her.I adore the relationship between her and Keith, so enduring and sweet, it's the emotional centre beneath all of the snarky sarcasm. I know the show has been praised for its feminist undertones, and rightly so, but I think the character of Logan often gets overlooked in that respect. Here is a male character (also a love interest) who isn't conventionally great looking, who looks like a high school student and who isn't hyper-masculine. Okay, he saves Veronica once or twice but generally she's the person saving his @r$e. There is even an episode where it is implied that he literally wet himself out of fear, while being held at gunpoint. Even his tortured, bad boy archetype is acknowledged, with a wry and knowing wink, being constantly referenced. There has been some criticism about the setting and the plot lines being unrealistic. I agree that Neptune, "a town without the middle class", and all that goes on within it, is rather far fetched. The show isn't anchored in the real world. But neither was Buffy. Veronica Mars still deals with real world problems, with universal themes and topical issues. I don't really care that it is highly stylised, too polished, that it is set in sunny California, a world so far removed from our own it may as well be on Mars (puns!). Everyone can relate to being an outsider, to the authority officials being corrupt or just unhelpful, to a culture of date rape and slut shaming, gang violence and to good ol' fashioned financial troubles.My favourite tiny detail- you see Veronica wearing clothes she has worn before. It's like, "hey look, she wore that jacket a couple of episodes ago. Finally, a teenage girl with a finite wardrobe!"

only a few shows truly can draw you in, ones like Freaks N Geeks, My So Called Life, Veronica Mars. Networks don't ever see the true fan base. So happy we are able to watch these three amazing seasons on other outlets now, DVD, Streaming (thank you amazon prime for having this as a Free/Included Show.After watching three seasons, and the new Movie, yeah I think I could be a Private Detective too. Kristen and the crew did a great job with Veronica Mars, even tho it was only three years, now a whole new batch of people can grow to love this show too.Hoping this is just the beginning of more to come. Would love a series again, even if we have to do it thru Netflix or Amazon, so much more to explore,,,, will Veronica ever meet Duncan and Megs kid (she has to be at least 9 or 10 by now) Will her Mother ever come back? Will Veronica be drawn back in by Neptune High for another round of scandalous activities ??Hope so, I'm in ! check out You Tube they have a 12 minute preview of what would have been season 4. Look under Veronica Mars Season 4: FBI Pilot here's the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zb-yt6-zaKQAgain, a great show, great job Kristen, keep it up!
