A friend of mine just got the first season of "Veronica Mars" on DVD, so this weekend we're planning on getting together to watch as many episodes as possible while drinking martinis and eating baked ziti.
Not familiar with the show? Here's what Joss Whedon, creator of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel" and "Firefly" said about it on his blog last week:
My peeps and I just finished a crazed Veronica Marsathon, and I can no longer restrain myself. Best. Show. Ever. Seriously, I've never gotten more wrapped up in a show I wasn't making, and maybe even more than those. Crazy crisp dialogue. Incredibly tight plotting. Big emotion, I mean BIG, and charismatic actors and I was just DYING from the mystery and the relationships and PAIN, this show knows from pain and no, I don't care, laugh all you want, I had to share this. These guys know what they're doing on a level that intimidates me. It's the Harry Potter of shows. There. I said it. People should do whatever they can to check out this first season so the second won't be a spoiler fest.
