1. Kristen Bell gave an interview to CNN just before the movie saying “Veronica Mars could be my life” and essentially saying she’d love to keep the story going for years through movies and a TV show.
“This could be my whole life. And by the way, what a lucky life it would be if it were. There’s no formula for it, because it just has never been done before. Except — and I’m just throwing it out there — “Star Trek” did it. They did a TV show and then nine movies. Who knows? Why can’t we make a couple films? Or continue to produce content of “Veronica Mars”? It gets tricky because television contracts legally only allow you to do one episode of a different show. They purchase you. I am now the face of “House of Lies.” So the only way I would be able to reprise Veronica Mars (on TV) is in movie form.” RT
2. Sign this Change.org petition to get season 4 on Netflix.
3. Have you bought the book yet? I did, and while it isn’t life-altering, it was good.
Caffeinated Links: Dohring and Bell on Their Chemistry, Mourning Allison Argent, Rectify
What makes Logan and Veronica fall in LoVe? Jason Dohring and Kristen Bell’s chemistry has never been in question, but the way she helped him get to a right answer about their onscreen relationship really shows just how in sync they are.
“I think it’s interesting that, despite all his privilege and all that, I think that a lot of people hurt him in his life, and she understood that part of him, when she saw me and what I was going through, and I could see that she had a bad relationship with her mother,” Dohring said of why the couple works. “I just look at her and I just feel it, man. I try to make it this deep, philosophical thing, and she just smiles at me and it’s game over.” Kristen jumped in: “You’re on to something, though. There’s something, an intangible, that we’re lucky enough to have when we work together. But it’s also like wounded birds recognize other wounded birds.” “It could have been said like that,” Dohring joked. RT
I wrote a reaction post on Buzzfeed about the death of one of the most badass female heroines to ever grace the small screen – the warm, wonderful, werewolf-slayig Allison Argent. Her death broke my heart and the heart of all Teen Wolf fans everywhere. Stages of Allison Argent Grief
Pajiba’s Dustin Rowles has a great post urging us all to watch Rectify now that it’s out on Netflix. I’m convinced (also, it features Scotty from Suits!) RT
In that vein, Flavorwire has a list of 40 Amazon-exclusive series you should watch. “But the TV selection on Amazon Instant Video is also just superior — exclusive NBCUniversal deals and vintage Nickelodeon favorites and one-season wonders galore! These 40 shows available on Amazon, but not on Netflix or Hulu, may just convince you to switch over.” RT
Veronica Mars Link Love
Sublime interview with Jason Dohring. “Logan loves Veronica,” Dohring told TODAY. “He understands her. They’ve both been through tremendous family struggles. And I think they both even without speaking understand each other. I think that that (is what) the audience connects to, when they just look at each other, It’s just like, ‘I get you.’ That’s what’s so beautiful about that relationship.” RT
THIS. Kristen Bell says Veronica is the closest role to her own personality.
Veronica/Logan Episode Guide to Veronica Mars
Once upon a time, a petite, snarky loner who moonlights as a private detective meets a fast-talking, troubled bad boy who stopped believing anyone could love him a long time ago. The rest, as they say, is history…or more specifically, sparked one of the longest-running and most dedicated fanbases in television history, heavily contributing to a feature film produced on donated money alone.
Logan and Veronica were one of my original television ships and, recently revisiting them in light of the upcoming film, I fell in mad, intense love all over again. Some things it turns out you don’t grow out of, and even now, years later, I am still taken aback by the sheer perfect setup of this relationship and the off-the-charts chemistry between Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring.
All of which is to say – what are you waiting for to watch this show for the first time, or delve back in for the second? There is wit, sparks, banter, much delicious rescuing of-and-comforting the other in the face of violence and tragedy, and all-around near-perfection.
