Does anyone else watch Veronica Mars? The show has quickly become one of my favorites. It doesn't get the greatest of ratings, since it's on UPN, and anyone I ever mention it to says, "Never heard of it." However, the show is just great. Great writing, fantastic acting, particulary by Kristin Bell, who manages to hit a home run with every line. Not to mention, she's a hottie. In addition, the large story arc of who killed Lilly Kane has so many layers and tons of suspects. There's got to be someone else out there who watches this show.

You know, I love continuity in my shows and so far this is just fantastic.

I love it, its just so... comfortable to watch. I always compare it to Lost just because they're two new dramas that are great. I'm sure Lost is probably more of a quality show, but I love Veronica Mars more. Maybe teen shows with ongoing story-lines just turn my crank. Its very Buffy-like in that way.

Smart writing, great acting, the mix of the funny and the drama.

I don't care if it becomes a hit, I just hope enough people watch for it to have a nice, long run.

And who knew that guy from Just Shoot Me could be more awesome than awesome.

I saw the commericals for it. Call me crazy, but I just can't buy into a high school student solving her best friend's murder.

Why not? Encyclopedia Brown solved all sorts of murders and he was like 12.

Never read 'em. Nor have I read The Hardey Boys. Isn't there a girl detective series that I also never read?

EDIT: Yeah, thanks Ryan_A, Nancy Drew. Never read those ones either.

Encyclopedia Brown solved stuff like the disappearance of Annie Mae's apple pie from the county bake-off, I don't think he solved too many murder cases. That Bugs Meany was an unscrupulous rogue, but he wasn't poppin' caps in anyone's ass.
whatever

Having read pretty much the complete works of Encyclopedia Brown when I was a kid, this just cracked me up completely. You know this would be in "The New Adventures of Encyclopedia Brown".

Okay, yes, I lied about murders in Encyclopedia Brown -- you cracked the case, you meddling miscreant. But Veronica is an updated, hotter Encyc B for the years 2004 and 2005. In this post-9/11 world of terrorism and prison torture, apple pies and missing sneakers just don't carry the same amount of gravitas. Also this girl is a major babe.
