A long time ago, we used to be friends...
I said the other day that Teen Dream, Beach House's new album, sounded like something off the Veronica Mars soundtrack. And that made me realize that it had been too long since I'd listened to the Veronica Mars soundtrack. I know this is in no way new or anything, but please, do yourself a favor and check it out - both the soundtrack and the show itself. Kristen Bell is a delight, and the supporting cast is great too, especially Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, and Francis Capra. Oh, gosh, and Tina Majorino. And Charisma Carpenter. The first season is practically perfect TV, with complex characters (both adults and teenagers) and good writing, and it manages to hit that mark that so many crime shows attempt of having an overarching plot for the whole season along with smaller mysteries in each episode. The second season did that almost as well - and, overall, was better in some ways - and if the third season became a bit of a mess, well, it was still better than 90% of the stuff on TV.
The same as I love you, you'll always love me too,Here, I'll make it easy for you (but of course, also try Netflix or your local library):
Or wait until February 8 (I'll remind you!) and watch season one for free at The WB. (They have season three up now, but please don't start with that. It won't make any sense. Trust me.)
