Oldie but goodie

Update: So seriously, I start watching this show right when the Kickstarter movie campaign begins? What are the chances?? Nice work, V.

Some things I wish I could go back in time and tell myself in 2004:
  • Nothing will turn out the way you think, but it will turn out even better.
  • This is the most self-indulgent time you’ll ever have – act like it!
  • Savor every minute with your girlfriends.
  • Watch Veronica Mars!

I know, one of these things is not like the other. And sure, I was eyeball-deep in graduate school and everything that came with it in the fall of 2004, meaning television didn’t happen very much for me then. Plus there was a certain World Series that October. But this show!

8.5 years after its debut, I’m loving:
  • The always-adorable Kristen Bell as a spunky Nancy Drew type
  • Quick wit and funny writing
  • The high/low plot point mix
  • Awesome father/daughter relationship
  • Amazing cameos from then-unfamous actors
  • A great heart
  • Hilariously bad lighting
So this is me these days – laying super-low and watching old television. I can't get enough of this fun fluff!

And yeah, this is also me deciding that blogging at all is better than blogging importantly. Enjoy!


  1. I agree with all of the above.
    Veronica is soo sassy!

  2. It's so funny, I heard that there was a huge snow storm (that didn't really happen) coming to DC and the first thing I thought of is...I bet Maggie will write a post!

  3. Veronica Mars, huh? I'll have to add this to my list of shows to catch up with on Netflix. I'm also going to give House of Cards a try. Have you seen it?

  4. I LOVE Veronica Mars! I actually got super into it when I was in Grad school and looking for some distraction. I got totally obsessed with it and devoured all the seasons in a few weeks. Veronica, Monk and West Wing are still my all time favorites for when I need a mind break.

  5. I love Veronica Mars. Hubby got me the whole series for my birthday. Logan is my favorite. Still have a crush on him.

  6. I never watched Veronica Mars either, but have heard endless praise for all of the above. Now that I'm done with West Wing (although I'm not really over it), I need another old show to watch!


C'mon, make my day...
