Why? For the love of...WHY?!

Veronica Mars wasn't even nominated for this year's Emmys. Not even Kristin Bell.

BOO! BOO! A thousand poxes on your house!

What is Veronica Mars about, pray? Simple.

In the monied town of Neptune, Veronica has the perfect life at 16 - her boyfriend is a dreamboat and the son of a local billionaire, she is popular (but not wealthy), and is generally loved by everyone.

Until her boyfriend breaks up with her and her best friend (the sister of dreamboat boyfriend) gets murdered. She is instantly ostracized from her uppity high school clique for choosing to side with her dad, the local sheriff who pinpoints local billionaire as the murderer of his own daughter. Dad then loses job and Mom splits, leaving her to deal with her issues alone.

Dad becomes a private investigator and chases bail jumpers for a living. She helps with the cases as much as she can, balancing math homework and catching late-night adulterers/adulteresses in the act.

Did I mention how brilliant the writing is for this series?

I tell you, watch this show. You're dead to me if you don't.

Local show times:
Wednesdays at 8.30 on ETC.
Sundays (reruns) at 4 pm on ETC. [thanks Phil!]
