Eric and I discovered Veronica Mars one cold winter's eve back in 2011. We had fully depleted our options on Netflix Watch-it-Now and it was time to start taking chances. At that point, the only thing I knew about Veronica Mars was that it was a mid-2000s UPN show that had once partnered up with America's Next Top Model. . . in Cycle 5 Kimmy Stoltz won some asinine challenge and got a small speaking role. Anyway, we assumed Veronica Mars was probably trash, but hey, it was February in Vermont.
Boy were were wrong! We totally fell for Veronica, Wallace, Keith. . . and eventually Logan. Sadly three seasons were all the show was given. . . . UNTIL NOW, maybe. Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas (No, not the Matchbox Twenty guy. Yes, the Party Down guy) has taken to Kickstarter to get Veronica Mars - THE MOVIE up and running. This project hit Kickstarter just last night and they've already surpassed their 2 million dollar goal - In less than 24 hours!! It's already gone up by 200k while I've been writing this post (i'm a slow writer but Still)!!
Because the one $10,000 backer spot was already taken (that lucky duck will get a tiny speaking roll as an extra!) I opted for the $25 one - which gets me a "limited edition Veronica Mars - The Movie t-shirt." I'm happy with that.
