I have been obsessed with Nancy Drew since I was eight years. When I came across Veronica, in my humble opinion, she was the updated version of her. Minus the date rape and the murder of her best friend, which inspires our beloved Veronica to become an amateur detective. (Not really a "SPOILER" since this show is several years old, is revealed in the first episode and you all should have seen every episode by now, which is indeed, on DVD. And, if you haven't --- shame on you!!!) Veronica, like Nancy, was being raised by her single parent father, Private Investigator (ex-sheriff), Keith Mars (played by Enrico Colantoni). Trust me, you will fall in LOVE with this man. He's the best father ever!!! Veronica is part of a very snobby community, but because her father was the town sheriff (fallen from grace), she became an outcast with certain skills and a moral compass that made her want to help people!!! And, said/mentioned date rape and unsolved murder of her best friend, Lily --- Veronica becomes THE most incredible heroine amateur detective of all time!!!
Well, as I said ... I LOVED Veronica Mars. And, since its cancellation, I have thoroughly enjoyed Kristen Bell. (Remember her from "You Again," "Heroes," and "House of Lies?") She will always have a special place in my heart. I am SO excited about Veronica getting her day with an actual movie. And, thanks to Rob for a glimpse, within the gem extras on season three, of a potential future for Veronica Mars in season three with the FBI --- thank you, thank you, thank you --- for never forgetting about my favorite girl.
