Day 1 – A show that should have never been canceled.

Veronica Mars.
A show that not many people have seen or even heard of, and hence why it was cancelled, but it was an excellent show that simply suffered from bad luck. And idiotic planning. I first tuned into it when it moved from UPN to the WB/CW and the season premiere of Season 3 followed Gilmore Girls, which I had already become addicted to long before. The trouble with this was that it was at 9pm on Tuesdays, which, at the time, was the same time that House aired. No shit is was going to do badly! House was and still is one of the most popular shows on television! Hell, the Gilmores were up against American Idol. Even worse was that it was unceremoniously cancelled, without a conclusion and on an epic cliffhanger. It sucked and I felt severely gipped.

But I digress.

The show was awesome. A real modern Nancy Drew. Kristen Bell was the title character and she rocked it. Most people know her as Elle Bishop from Heroes or Sarah Marshall (as in Forgetting Sarah Marshall). One of my favorite episodes featured Ms. Mars doing a stint in the local jail (one of two cells) and she played the whole thing up like a 1920’s gangster. Awesome.

The mysteries she solved in the first two seasons were ones that actually had you stumped – right along with her – and when she solved them by the end of the seasons you were shouting victorious with her. The characters are well-rounded and believable as teens.

If you have Netflix, add this show to your Queue. It’s totally worth it.
