I just want to take a second to talk about this. Yes, we hit two million. We did it in less than eleven hours. But you know what else we did? We started conversation.
This show hasn’t been on air in years and we are starting conversation. People are talking about it. People who have never seen the show before, never heard about it. They are hearing about the group of fans that raised two million dollars to get a movie based off a show that was canceled after three seasons. They are talking about the people who broke records on a fundraising website and who quite possibly have changed the idea of how movies can be made.
So yeah, this is incredible; we’re getting our movie after all this time, but we didn’t just stop there. People are taking notice of this show that has changed all of us in different ways, and hopefully more people will begin watching it, even if it does “only” have three seasons. Because everyone should get a chance to learn the lessons that this show taught us - about fairness, justice, wit, responsibility, strength, dignity, honor, courage, bravery and that life’s a bitch until you die, but you still have a chance to make it as good as you possibly can, no matter what bullshit is thrown at you.
I say this from the bottom of my heart: thank you, Marshmallows. Whether you donated or not, you are a part of something spectacular. We are the Veronica Mars fans and we are getting our movie.
Con: Hard to Make Her an Outsider When She’d Be Awesome Now One of the great things about Veronica as a character was her outsider status, and the fact that she didn’t quite fit in with any faction of high school or college students, and just had her little gang to support her. But now that she’s post-grad, wouldn’t people in the real world have come to appreciate her awesomeness? We presume that she’d have grown into an even more kick-ass adult who had a large circle of friends who appreciated her brilliance and would have loved that she’d run background checks on all their significant others and/or take a tire iron to their car. And if this movie is set at her high school reunion, wouldn’t her former classmates be impressed by her FBI credentials and successes, like Sandy Frink in Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion?
This little girl has changed my life so much and it’s only been 2 months. For anyone that is considering rescuing a dog, do it! Yes it’s hard work but you and your rescue will be very happy! I mean look at this face!
Spencer: “What in the serious fuck, Mona?” Mona: “Look, I played dumb for a really long time. That’s boring now, I want to be myself. I kept up with my schoolwork while I was … away…” Gay Side-Eye Kid:Most amazing and gif-able face of all.
