Veronica Mars: Out of this World good
Just another simple and stupid teen show that the CW has mass produced and spit out right? Nope. Not even close. Veronica Mars which debut in the fall of 2004 on the UPN network which later became the CW is a stroke of genius. The show was originally intended to be a novel collection by writer Rob Thomas but opted it to be a tv series instead. Also, the protagonist was meant to be a male but Thomas later decided that the teen PI would be more interesting from a female point of view and I couldn't agree more; In my mind is no other choice. And there is also no other person who could play such a mix of sassy and sweet other than Kristen Bell. Who I believe along with the writing carry this show. Bell may have given her best performance ever with this series. Veronica Mars takes place in the fictional town of Neptune California where as Veronica says "Your parents are millionaires or your parents work for millionaires. Neptune California, where there is no middle class." A year and a half after the murder of her best friend Lilly, Veronica and her family become outcast due to the fact that her Dad, who is the Sheriff, blames Lilly's family for the murder. However, both Veronica and her father have not given up on finding Lilly's real murderer even though someone else has already confessed. Finding Lilly's killer catapults you through the first highly acclaimed season and you will not be able to take your eyes away.
And if the trailer isn't enough to convince you; You can watch the first season of Veronica Mars online.
