Veronica Mars in the Media

Recommended Posts

Well, after the movie at one point I did feel like there was a possibility of a short season (or two) but I figured the movie didn't do well enough to warrant that. Glad to see it's still an option because I do want to see more Veronica and especially more Neptune.

I enjoyed the movie as a love letter to the fans.  I really dig the books which have forwarded the overall story line (and I think they are canon), so I think a limited run series would be terrific.  In a perfect world, I'd like to see something the way BBC does Sherlock, but I really will take what I can get :)

Kristen and her husband are a little nutty.

 

This is clearly a few years old, but Dax just posted it.

Kristen gave an hour long interview for "Off Camera with Sam Jones"-- which is airing on DirecTV's  "Audience Channel"-- I don't know if other TV outlets carry it, or if it's available to stream on line. But it was really interesting.

 

She talked a lot about how it felt to her to play Veronica, not just professionally but also personally.

 

Apparently she suffers from depression and anxiety and has since she was a kid, and she talked a lot about that, and about how acting helps her, and how things she experienced as Veronica changed her as a person.

 

She also talked about her marriage, her view of life, other roles (especially Sarah Marshall, House of Lies, and Frozen), her childhood, how she chooses what projects to sign on for....

 

It was a really compelling hour if you have any interest in her or any of those topics.

While I love Kristen Bell and 'Veronica Mars,' my question is whether we really need a series. As a VM fan, the movie was good. It tied up some loose ends but let some characters ride off into the sunset. And that's where I want to leave them. I don't know if I want to keep following these characters into adulthood. Somehow I think I'd be disappointed. 

The only person I'd like to learn about is Duncan. How are he and Lily doing? What's he doing for money? How is his bipolar disorder (or whatever condition is was that made him short-circuit around Veronica).

Netflix is now carrying "Off Camera" but they don't have all the episodes yet. I don't see Kristen's listed, but it's something to watch for, as Netflix often adds a season at a time.

Her episode (it's a nearly hour long interview) is #057 and you can find more details at offcamera.com .

I would watch the show if they revived it. I think the movie was fun, but a little manic, because they were trying to jam so much into it. If they went back to a serial, it could breathe a little more.

I would watch a limited series. I wouldn't want full 20+ episode seasons but I'd like a 6-10 episode season with mostly a single mystery and no case of the week. Maybe add some story lines about the characters' jobs, family, friends or romance which may or may not tie in with the mystery.

Per TVLine: 

 Veronica Mars Boss Rob Thomas Shares 'Six-Episode' Revival Update

By Michael Ausiello / January 21 2017, 9:40 AM PST

With the Gilmore Girls revival behind us, it’s time to reopen our investigation into a second Veronica Mars reunion project.

Over the summer, leading lady Kristen Bell confirmed our initial scoop that she and series creator Rob Thomas are eyeing a limited-series format vs. a fan-funded feature film this time around, telling me at Comic-Con, “We are definitely striving to do it again… And this time around we’re not going to ask the audience to pony up for anything."

At the Television Critics Association winter press tour last week, Thomas — who was promoting iZombie Season 3 — revealed that the potential continuation would consist of a half-dozen hour-long episodes. “Kristen and I both want to figure out some way we could do a six-episode Veronica Mars mystery,” he shared. “If I were a betting man, I bet that it will happen. I just don’t know when it will be.”

Two likely complications/obstacles: Bell’s commitment to NBC’s The Good Place and Thomas’ in-the-works Lost Boys remake for The CW. “We need to find a window where we could both do it,” he explained. “When actors are on network shows, most standard contracts will give them outs for, like, one episode a year of guest-starring. But then there are also sometimes outs if you’re doing something that is non-competitive. Would NBC consider a Veronica Mars thing on, like, Netflix non-competitive? We have not figured that out yet.

“Also, I’m developing Lost Boys,” he adds. “If those things weren’t happening, we might be closer to a Veronica Mars [continuation]. The Good Place, I think, is going to be on NBC for a while. And if Lost Boys goes, finding that window will be tricky. But we both want to do it.” (With reporting by Vlada Gelman)

I think that a number of stories got finished with the books, Logan for example (I mean he can be around as a romantic figure, but his storyline is finished. He's faced down his demons and shown us how he will function in the future).  The books finished off some more stories, Lianne and Weevil.  I think for a lot of people it is okay if V is just a PI all her life,  but I think she came back to work on what she wants to be when she grows up and her relationship with her father, things that were cut off when she left Hearst abruptly and those storylines aren't finished yet, also Keith could use a bit more resolution (I hope).

I'd love a series. It's not that I need resolution for the characters. I just love spending time with them, watching how they interact, and going along for the ride as they solve mysteries!

 I would also like to spend more time with characters. 

But IMO a lot of stories are still unfinished. As it was mentioned before Veronica herself might not stay PI forever, she could upgrade her career (become a detective, an FBI agent or perhaps an ADA), there is the question of Keith - his relationship with Veronica and perhaps his romantic life (does he still love awful Lianne?), perhaps we could find out more about Wallace's and Mac's romantic life too.

Logan is a solder now. I want him to stay alive, but I could predict (another) PTSD after combat. How will he (and Veronica) cope with it? Will he be able to overcome it? Will they have family etc? Duncan might return too. 

I would also like to see, how they will resolve Madison/Mac switch at birth. IMO Veronica's rape must be addressed again - including Dick's and Madison's part in it.

Somehow I'm just coming across this talk of a six episode limited run.  I'd totally be on board with more VM in any shape or form.  I love these characters and relish the thought of spending more time with them.  Except for Duncan.  I thought he was a bland bore when he was on the show so I don't much care what he's up to now.

Oh, no. That's horribly sad. I really enjoyed him as Felix.

Wasn't it Brad Bufanda or his mom or something who first found the TWoP recaps and brought them to Rob Thomas' attention?

Kristen Bell on Seth Meyers last week. Most of the interview is about what she planned to celebrate Dax's sobriety anniversary, but they start talking about Veronica Mars around the 3:30 mark. She said they are going to begin shooting on November 5th in Los Angeles. She also has a gross story about the Neptune High bathroom set they used in S1-S2.
