I am so happy to have reached another milestone in my blogging “career”. This is my 100th post (which for a long time, I seriously doubted that I would ever reach) and what better way to celebrate than to talk about one of my all time favourite shows: Veronica Mars!
When I was younger I adored the TV show, although no one seemed to hype it like I did. But Veronica Mars was and still is a great role model and I couldn’t have been happier about the Kickstarter feature length movie they made, because it definitely deserved to continue. Now, it’s going to take a while until they’ll make another movie – that is, if they make another movie. But don’t despair Marshmallows!
On the one hand there are the companion books for the show that creator Rob Thomas co-wrote with Jennifer Graham. The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line has been out for a while and in October you can expect the new release of Mr. Kiss and Tell. I personally haven’t read the books yet, but they take place after the movie and I will put up a review as soon as I can get my hands on some copies of them.
If you are more of a visual type and don’t just want to read about the adventures of Veronica there is another treat for us. CW Seed has agreed to produce an original digital series featuring almost all of our beloved Mars-cast-members. The show will be called Play It Again, Dick and will revolve around Ryan Hansen, who tries to create a spin-off series for his on-screen character Dick Casablancas. In the series the CW only agrees to make the show with Ryan if he can get his old cast members to reprise their roles as well. The list of actors and actresses who appear is extremely long and they will almost all play their Veronica Mars characters as well as a slightly skewed version of their real selves. Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Daran Norris, Francis Capra, Kyle Gallner, Christopher B. Duncan, Ken Marino, Chris Lowell, Amanda Noret and Lisa Thornhill will return for Hansen’s funky and weird new detective show, but there are also some new faces. Ryan Devlin (who played the rapist in the third season) will now star as the new face of Duncan Kane – talking about weird … Also Robert Buckley and Rose McIver will have a small role.
I personally can’t wait for Play It Again, Dick, because it sounds absolutely hilarious! What do you think? Do you miss the old show?
