VM Craze - I Fall So Hard
November 29th, 2005 11:16 am
VM Craze

I'm so confused! Thanks to brasaremean, I've finally gotten really into Veronica Mars. It really is a great show... witty young detective with a cynical view. She doesn't lead a perfect life and is the underdog, so how can you not root for her?!

What's funny is that the creator of the show, Rob Thomas, is one of my fave authors. His book Rats Saw God is great. It also is a name of one the episodes. I only made the connection between Thomas and the show when I visited his website. Then, it was like, oh yeah! Apparently, his roommate at UT went to Clear Lake High School (my old haunt) and that's what he based a lot of the characters on. It's not as bad as Neptune, but it has some similarities... Anyway, I wrote him an email telling him that. I don't expect to hear from him, but it just makes me love the show more! VM was supposed to be a book series. Although I'd love to see some VM books, I'm glad it's a show! :)

Here's the problem... I joined the minority of Duncan & Veronica fans. I've seen the pilot and "Ahoy, Mateys!" and some snippets of a 1x02, 1x07, and 1x09. I don't understand about Duncan's deal with dumping Veronica. I was thinking it was because of her dad and Lilly's death, but then I saw that he was ignoring her even before that! I know that there was the theory that they were related, because their parents dated. But, why did Duncan abruptly break up with Veronica? Is it because he thought she was his sister? And they slept together at that party when Veronica was drugged with the date rape drug? But what about Duncan? He was ignoring her then, so what's his deal? I don't get it... I know he disappeared to Cuba, then came back. What's that all about? Seriously, WTF?! Upcoming potentially scary moment tonight where Duncan looks rather seductive and CC is a bitchy whore:



All I know is that Logan holds little appeal to me. Sorry, everyone! I know that LoVe is appealing to so many, but I only saw his appeal in the very last episode, when he tried to protect Veronica. But he's so lewd in the pilot and the first season. Yuck! And Logan has a rage problem with smashing V's car. Weevil takes care of that, but still... Anyway, I like Duncan's chivalry. He seems troubled (who wouldn't be with all that happened?), but I think he's so much better for V. I know I haven't seen all the episodes, but that's just the feeling I have now. It might change later, but I doubt it. :) Look at the sweetness, credit goes to http://www.veronica-duncan.net:



I did read that a character is going to die this season... and there's speculations that it might be Duncan! :( I guess it depends on negotiations. Damn minor spoilers for ruining my vicarious love life! LOL! I heard a podcast (hint: click Podcast to play clip!) of Enrique C. talking about it, but he wouldn't reveal the character. Btw, Enrique is so talented! I used to watch Just Shoot Me if nothing else was on, and the difference between his character on VM and Elliot DeMaro(?) is astounding. And don't get me started on how great Kristen Bell is as an actress. She really brings her A-game! An oscar is in her future, I bet.

Sadly enough, there is even more speculation that Meg, Duncan's old girlfriend, might be pregnant. She's in a coma, having survived the bus crash, but who knows? Between the weird dream Duncan had of her (very sad, because I thought it was V. at first!) and the mysterious letter, I don't know what to think. :( Like father, like son? That would be so disappointing!

Something else I wonder about is how do they get Veronica to appear so young in the flashbacks? I know they put a wig or extensions on Kristen. And she dresses in more revealing clothes as a younger V. Maybe they also put on less make-up? As the present V., Kristen wears bulkier clothes and appears older with her make-up/hair cut. It's the same with Alison Lohman in White Oleander. She appears so young in the beginning with long hair, and then appears edgier/older with make-up and a hair cut later in the movie. Both Kristen and Alison are tremendous actresses! :)



Thanks for listening to the ramble! It's always fun to find a new show to passionate about, especially when your other ships are disappointing (cough: T7S & WAT :cough). I just am so excited to know what happens next... For any spoiler whores like me, here are some VM sides: http://www.livejournal.com/users/vmars_sides/ This nice LJ'er posted these on YSI.

Yay, welcome to the Veronica Mars love.

As for the reasons behind Duncan breaking up with Veronica, you're getting close to what they are, but I'm not sure how much you want to be spoiled and how much you want to discover when watching the first season episodes. Needless to say, there are good reasons for it that make a lot of sense once everything's explained (which really doesn't happen until the second to last episode of the first season "A Trip to the Dentist").

On the Logan side, he absolutely starts off as the totally hateable asshole, and yet, as the first season progressed...he became extremely likeable. He's still crude and a jerk and more than a little psychotic...but...he's awesome.

I was showing my friends the first season on DVD and in the first few epsiodes, I was giggling at Logan and squeeing a bit (not that I have an OTP for this show besides Logan/anything within a 10ft. radius) and my friends were all "You like him? How can you like him, he's just a jackass." Lo and behold by the end they were cooing over him too.

I really need to catch up on the second season though, stupid bittorrent. *pokes it*

LoL! Thank you. I'm going to try to watch the episodes in semi-order. I sort of know what happens in "A Trip to the Dentist," because I read the summary on UPN, but I will try to wait before watching it. :) Logan... he does have that bad boy charm!

I get you on the vulnerability thing. I think all of the characters are, just like on WAT, where there's something missing or something happened that makes them a little more deep. And that's what's so attractive about them. I try not to spoil myself, but it's so hard! :D LOL!

I guess between Duncan and V's past and Duncan's latest behavior... What the hell is going to happen? :) And Logan does seem to really care about V, but his language is very derogatory at times. But the attraction... I'm starting to see it!

Ahh! VM just started here the other night! I haven't actually made my mind up about a ship yet, if any, but it looks like a really interesting show. Helps that everyone is so pretty :) Btw I'm sharing your love of Enrico C. I used to love Elliot on Just Shoot Me

Yay! VM spreads over the world. :) EC is awesome! I had no idea he's such a great actor. I couldn't imagine anyone else in his part. The rest of the cast, either. And, all the people above are LoVe (Logan + Veronica) worshippers. Some were Duncan and V. So who knows? LOL!
