We're still here, right?  I know that my non-Veronica Mars life has gotten in the way, but I fully intend to watch 11 episodes later this week so that by the time the schedule calls for discussion of the season one finale on the 26th I'll be ready. :)  (And I do have things to say about the finale, but I'm keeping my mouth tightly shut for now.)

Are the new-to-VM folks still around?  How do you like the show so far?

ninamazing pointed me to an awesome interview with Kristen Bell yesterday, and here's the link if anyone else wants to read it.  It's not at all spoilery for VM (but they do talk about it, among her other projects), but it just shows how cool Kristen Bell is.

(And if you like Kristen and you like dogs, I love looking at these scans when I'm missing mine.)

Favorite Quotes Poll: "Betty and Veronica"

I may have been a totally crap mod over the past couple of weeks, but I am going to make it up to you all starting NOW, with this collection of some of the best lines in this week's episode. 1x16 "Betty and Veronica" charmed the hell out of me when I first saw it, and as always, the script was a HUGE part of that. After you take this poll, feel free to chime in with more love in your own discussion posts!

(Also, don't forget that you can revisit old episodes -- just make sure to tag your posts with the proper titles so we can find them. "Mars vs. Mars" and "Ruskie Business" both have VERY SPECIAL PLACES in my heart, so I will definitely be going back to catch up on those.)

picspam: clash of the tritons

Long time, no picspam. Decided I'd take this Sunday morning to change that trend.

MILD spoilers for those who are watching this for the first timeCollapse )

WOOHOO! As you enjoy this one over the coming week, feel free to post your thoughts, your caps, your questions, your theories, your sonnets, whatever. I'll be doing another Official Favorite Moment Discussion Post, too, so be prepared with a snapshot from your favorite scene -- or just write down your favorite quote. Cheers. :)

Getting in a last bit of "Silence of the Lamb" obsessing before the week is out ... and also introducing the Official Favorite Moment Discussion Post, where you can toss up your prettiest screencap in a comment or just squee to your heart's content. I wouldn't say no to episode-based haikus, either.

I have TWO favorite moments under here. I cheated.Collapse )

Also, um, Mac is completely adorable; if 20-year-olds were actually like Leo this 20-year-old would certainly be sleeping with more men; and I will never get enough of seeing Keith go all Detective-y. Over and out.

1x11 "Silence of the Lamb"

To all of you who have answered the poll so far, thank you very much. If you haven't, please check it out now. I really appreciate your responses! I'll try and make this community as awesome as possible.

And without further ado, it's time for 1x11 "Silence of the Lamb." I loooooooooved this episode the first time I saw it and still do, not least because of my overwhelming admiration for one Deputy Leo D'Amato. All you first-timers are in for a treat. And let's face it, we multiple-timers are as well. ;)

AN ECHOLLS FAMILY CHRISTMAS YAY

So sorry, dear comm, that I haven't done a reminder post for the past two weeks -- I was under the influence of the Summer Cold That Launched A Thousand Ships. Or something. Anyway, this week it's time to roll up our sleeves and get the poker chips out, because it's "An Echolls Family Christmas" Day. YESSSSSS.

You awesome people have posted some seriously great picspams and quotes and other awesome VM-inspired food for thought, BUT I WANT MORE. Let me know what I can do to boost the participation!

1x09 PICSPAM!

This episode is mostly about Veronica and Keith as she struggles to deal with the fact that her biological father might be Jake Kane.  There's also this little side thing going on where some 09er joins a cult, but really, even that's about Veronica and Keith. 

WARNING: This is my first picspam. Also, there's lots of pictures, but no spoilers for future episodes.

Drinking the Kool-AidCollapse )
So ... I hope everyone's been keeping up with the schedule.  I have to admit that last week I was four episodes behind and watched disk two of season one in one go, and that I just watched "Drinking the Kool-Aid" tonight.

I just thought I'd make a few observations...

  1. The way Neptune appears to be a real high school.  The recurring characters are pretty consistent, and it seems like the supporting students appear in at least two episodes throughout the course of the first two seasons.  For example, Dick and Beaver -- currently just members of Logan's group, but their roles expand as the season continues (the last episode of season one, if you weren't aware or haven't noticed, is called "Leave it to Beaver", which implies that he does something important...)  Shelly Pomroy hosted the party where Veronica lost her virginity, and she's the student who gets in a tizzy about Pirate Points in "Return of the Kane".  Not to mention a few other students that have just made their first appearances, such as Mac, Meg, and Meg's sister Lizzie.  I love that we don't meet neccessarily different students in each episode, but they might be members of certain cliques that we just haven't seen before
  2. behind the cut...Collapse )
My very favorite episode, "An Echolls Family Christmas", is scheduled for this week, and you should watch it for the following reasons: my birthday is Friday, it has Weevil in it, and it turns out that Veronica can play poker like one of the guys.
