|04:02 pm - Whedonesque 2: This Time It's Not Whedonesque 1|
I'm sure you've all seen Joss's fanboy squee over Veronica Mars by now, but I'm reposting it because A) I had to use that subject line and B) you just might have missed it the first fifty times you saw it on your flist. Besides, dtissagirl wants everyone on her flist to post it, and even though I'm not on her flist, she's on mine, so it...it made sense in my head, I swear.
Joss Luvs Veronica.
This is my attempt at posting my own thread. My peeps and I just finished a crazed Veronica Marsathon, and I can no longer restrain myself. Best. Show. Ever. Seriously, I've never gotten more wrapped up in a show I wasn't making, and maybe even more than those. Crazy crisp dialogue. Incredibly tight plotting. Big emotion, I mean BIG, and charsimatic actors and I was just DYING from the mystery and the relationships and PAIN, this show knows from pain and no, I don't care, laugh all you want, I had to share this. These guys know what they're doing on a level that intimidates me. It's the Harry Potter of shows. There. I said it. People should do whatever they can to check out this first season so the second won't be a spoiler fest. I'm nutty.
I'm a little calmer now. Oh God, no I'm not! Wait. Wait. Okay. Some of you may already be all up on this, and some may disagree, but I'm urging peeps to check it out, 'cause there is great TV afoot, and who doesn't want that? Thank you for your time.
Still not calm! Wait... wait...
I e-mailed Rob, who said it made his day. He's very eager to watch Buffy S2 now, which has been sitting in his Netflix queue for a week.
So, I'm back. And you guys posted like a thousand times while I was gone. With my intermittent Internet access, I was able to skim most of them and comment on a few, but if there's a post I appear to have missed, feel free to bring it to my attention! Tell me what I missed over the last ten days!
Big thanks to raelee and nsfinch for transcribing my PhonePosts. I'm going to give that last one a shot after this.
BSG GOOD. HITLER BAD. SHERBERT NEUTRAL. For better BSG thoughts, check out wisteria_, who also does fun screencap reviews.
Finally, I might as well stick in that one meme that was going around back in the day: tell me your first impression of me, and how it may or may not have changed. You may be anonymous if you wish.

Oh good, I was hoping that Rob would find out and decide he just had to watch BtVS, now. =)
When Joss mentioned he had watched the pilot and loved it, I told Rob, and he promised to watch Buffy. That must have been about a week ago, so it looks like he did actually add the DVDs to his Netflix queue at the time.

Yeah, I just figured that maybe if Rob found out that Joss was raving about VM that he'd feel honor-bound to watch at least S2 of Buffy. And once he watches S2, he'll definitely want to watch more. It'll do my heart good to watch the mutual fanboying. I wonder how it is that Rob never ended up with a spec on Joss's desk all those years between his failed DEK series and VM...
The fact that you talk to Rob Thomas and refer to him simply as "Rob" is so effing hot.
He and the Whedonverse people are just like that, really. They're so close with the fans, it's only natural. Joss, Tim, Jane, Doug, Drew. Rob. J.J. seems like that as well. But, I mean, you don't think of Chris Carter or David E. Kelly or Aaron Sorkin as Chris or David or Aaron.
Actually I think of Chris Carter as DudeWhoFucksUpArcs. We're really close.
