Ten years ago today, the world met Veronica Mars. A fresh-faced newcomer named Kristen Bell made her TV debut as a teenaged private eye, ostracized by her fellow students,who solves crimes on the side, including the murder of her best friend.
“I feel like Veronica, her superpower is being able to say what she feels. To speak the truth, which I think for teenage girls is an especially empowering notion..Though she has no special fighting power or super power, her ability to speak her mind, I think made her special to fans.” - Rob Thomas
2014 was the year “Veronica Mars” fans got their wish and saw their favorite teenage detective return. Seven years after The CW canceled the series, loyal viewers saw a “Veronica Mars” movie hit theaters as a result of their crowd funding. Since that release and the subsequent premiere of The CW’s “Play It Again, Dick” web series, star Enrico Colantoni has felt the fervor for more of Veronica’s adventures die down.
But he tells Zap2it he hopes it’s only a matter of time before the show gets another season – fingers crossed. “Secretly I hope that it’s inevitable that it comes back,” he says while promoting his arc on “Person of Interest.”
“That would be great, because I think ’Veronica Mars’ is too big for movies. Her life is too big, it’s too epic. It needs to spend 10 to 13 episodes just to get how rich she is.” (X)
Dad always said this town could wreck a person. It’s what happens when you play a rigged game. I convinced myself winning meant getting out. But in what world do you get to leave the ring and declare victory? This is where I belong. In the fight. It’s who I am. I’ve rolled around in the mud for so long…wash me clean and I don’t recognize myself. So, how about I just accept the mud? And the tendency I have to find myself rolling in it? My name is Veronica, and I’m an addict. (Veronica Mars, 2014)
