I’m a big fan of watching TV shows after they come out on DVD.  You don’t have to deal with the commercials, and you can be assured of not missing anything.  Plus, I don’t have cable, so it’s about the only way I ever see TV.  Anyway, Vikki and I just finished season 1 of Veronica Mars.  What a fantastic show.  I can see why Joss Whedon calls it the best show that noone is watching.  Great dialogue, good acting (mostly), great story arc, and I totally didn’t see the ending coming. 

While each episode explores a subplot about the rigors of high school, etc. the overarching story line is about a murder mystery, and the season ends with the murderer revealed (it’s not who you think).  They pulled off some very interesting plot twists throughout.  I’m breathlessly anticipating season 2 next month.  There are still a number of open questions which I’m hoping they’ll pursue in the second season. 

If you like the Whedonverse (BtVS/Angel/Firefly) you’ll probably like Veronica Mars.  Best dialogue this side of Joss himself.
