I admit it. I'm a huge Veronica Mars fan. Fellow YA authors told me I had to check out the TV series. I was able to Netflix them.
For those of you who aren't familiar with all the Mars excitement, here's a little backstory from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veronica_Mars:
Veronica Mars is a student who progresses from high school to college while moonlighting as a private investigator under the tutelage of her detective father. In each episode, Veronica solves a different stand-alone case while working to solve a more complex mystery. The first two seasons of the series each had a season-long mystery arc, introduced in the first episode of the season and solved in the season finale. The third season took a different format, focusing on smaller mystery arcs that would last the course of several episodes.
I loved seasons one and two. What really stood out for me had to be the dialogue and oh, yes, Logan.
When I heard that they were doing a Kickstart program to help fund the movie? Yes, I was totally all over that!
I got my own Veronica Mars t-shirt, stickers, and also the digital script to the movie!
The movie takes place ten years later. Veronica has graduated from law school when she gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan asking for help. He's been accused of killing his pop star girlfriend.
Loved when she first sees Logan!
And omg on this:
