It’s rare that we get snow days in GA. Rare and wonderful.
The boys have been home from school, Superhubby has been home from work, and we’ve all been pretty lazy. Except for all the snowball fights, that is.
These surprise down days have given me time to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a while– time that has started a trend. My husband calls it an obsession.
Let me explain.
Years ago BC (before children), Superhubs and I used to watch a lot of TV together. One of the shows we watched together was Veronica Mars. We were both big fans.
Veronica Mars– the story of a teenaged wanna-be private eye who spends her days in normal high school drama and her nights solving crimes, like the murder of her best friend.
So when I found out that a Veronica Mars movie was on its way to theaters (releasing March 14, 2014), I was PUMPED.
But TV being pretty much a luxury for me now, I realized there was a lot I’d forgotten about the show. So, I’m re-watching. And these snow days were perfect for indulging myself.
And perhaps Superhubs is right– I’m obsessed. Again. Just like I was when I watched this show years ago.
What’s got me obsessed?
Is it the great writing, interesting stories and compelling characters?
Is it Veronica Mars herself (played by the adorable Kristen Bell) and her snarky mouth, wit like a rapier and “no fear” skills as a high school private investigator?
Partly. (PS- I want to be her when I grow up.)
But mostly it’s Logan Echolls (played by Jason Dorhing) and his bad-boy, “I need serious psychiatric help but I’m loveable because I’m broken” devotion to Veronica.
The passion between these two characters is grrrrreat! (Insert Tony the Tiger…)
Hate-hate-hate-HATE-hate-hate-toleration-toleration-what’s-happening-with-these-two-whoa-what-the-heck-they’re-kissing-I-want-them-to-be-together-forever kinda passion.
It’s the classic story of two characters who hate each other’s guts but are drawn together by circumstances only to find that they have more in common than they thought and can really bring out the best in each other.
Here’s the thing– **Spoiler alert!** There’s no happy ending here. (Okay, sorry if I spoiled that for you).
The show was canceled after three glorious seasons. Re-watching is just reawakening the feelings of injustice that I never got the rest of Veronica and Logan’s story.
Hence the reason why I am PUMPED about the movie.
It picks up 9 years later, after the last thing we see in the show. Veronica has grown up; moved on. She’s got a new dude in her life (well, not new, but…just watch the show.) But something brings her back to her hometown…and to Logan Echolls.
And even in the preview for the movie, when we see Veronica and Logan together on screen for the “first” time in 9 years… well, I might have done a fan-girl squeal. Might have. Probably did. You’ll never really know.
So I’m obsessively re-watching this show and indulging in the on-again-off-again-on-again-will-they-just-make-it-official-already relationship between Veronica and Logan.
As I’ve said, I’m a hopeless romantic and these two have got that magic romance thing going on, people.
Not everyone loves Logan and Veronica together, though. If you’re a fan of the show or if you decide to watch it, you’ll have to let me know– are you #TeamLogan or #Team…someone else?
If you haven’t seen the show, you’re missing out.
You still have time to watch before the movie comes out. Amazon Prime has all 3 seasons available for free right now.
