Kris, I'm not that far ahead of you. I discovered Veronica Mars this past summer and yes, obsessed! Great post.

Barb Goffman

I've loved Veronica Mars since 2004. LoVe. Loved the movie, too. And the book series, which began earlier this year with Veronica Mars and the Ten-Thousand Dollar Tan Line, is worth your time, too. The first season of the TV show was best, but season two is very well written with lots of clues layered in--things you won't notice on the first watch of the season.

My daughters & I watched it together years ago. We were really excited to see the movie come out. It followed the characters really well. I have enjoyed the book with another one coming out in the next couple of months. You should watch the movie & then read the books as they follow in order. I have to admit that third season lost me, not as good of a story arc.
So you have a lot to look forward to.

Veronica Mars is a personal favorite. It's fun to re watch because I always catch something I missed along the way. I agree, the first season is the best, but all the episodes are worth watching before catching the movie.

Add me to the fans of Veronica from it's initial run. Last January, in preparation for the movie, I rewatched for the first time in 10 years. I was hooked all over again and reminded just why I loved the show. Thanks to my DVD's, I was able to rush through the entire show in a month. (I must not have had a life.) I just couldn't stop watching.

I'm one of the rare ones who actually liked the 3rd season. It was different with two smaller arcs and a couple of tagged on episodes instead of one big arc, but I still thought it was very good. When I finished watching it, I was left with the same feeling of loss.

Fortunately, the movie came out, and I liked the first book, too.

Diane, thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one! I think we're actually luckier that we get our private obsession now.

Barb, I had no idea there were books! I'll have to check them out. I'm watching season 2 now, torn between savoring it slowly and racing through them. I don't think I like it quite as well as season 1, but it's still great.

Diane, I didn't know there were books, until a couple of you mentioned that. I will definitely track them down. I have seen the movie, even though I haven't finished the episodes. I've saved it, though, so I can watch it again after I finish them all. I've heard from someone else that season 3 isn't as good, but I won't be able to resist watching it. Thanks for sharing.

Alyssa, being in season 2 now, I also agree that season 1 is the best, but I'm still loving it. I also couldn't resist watching the movie, even tough I'm not through with all the episodes. But I plan on re-watching after I finish. I'll probably re-watch everything.

Kris, I watched Veronica Mars (and Buffy, and Gilmore Girls) years before my daughter became interested. We now watch them together. Veronica is a modern-day Nancy Drew and I loved every episode--and the movie. Her relationship with her father is perfect, which is to say "comically flawed." Enjoy the deliciousness, and when in trouble, always remember to call for Backup!

krisneri

Chris, I love Veronica's relationship with her father, too. His trust of her ability to handle things teens normally don't is reminiscent of Nancy Drew's father's trust of her, only in a more contemporary, more dangerous world. Love Backup, too!
