I Can Haz Veronica Mars?

Well, no, I can’t, not really. Late, lamented show of mine, whither your tightly paced plots and even tighter dialogue? Your stars lost to Heroes and Moonlight and Private Practice, your writer and creator lost to … Big Shots, at least for a couple episodes, which almost makes me want to watch … almost.

But I can have this: Twelve minutes or so of what would have been the S4 pilot, with Veronica working at the FBI–school’s out, and not just for the summer. I guess this was the last-ditch effort to shake up the format enough to appeal to the execs. Alas, alas that it did not succeed. I’m not so sure about it in the long term, myself–skipped right over the rest of her college years to join what would almost certainly have been a shaky representation of the Bureau in the realism department? I don’t know. But this is right up to usual VM standards. Sigh.

Where did this come from? Who let him/her put it on the web? I don’t suppose it can do any harm, but neither do I suppose we’ll get a Mars movie out of it. Still, as ten minutes of nostalgia … it works for me.

  2. This was done as presentation to the studio not for public consumption. Its too bad it never made it to air, the cancellation of VM is still one of the biggest mistakes in Network history.

  3. This makes me soooooo sad. I want it back, they are such bastards for not renewing it. Although, I’ll need my Logan…

  4. No doubt. “a celebratory robot, Moonwalk perhaps. You know, somethin’ for the kids.” Priceless.
