It was a big day for us. Veronica Mars was THE girl detective, the end-all be-all of all things that needed detecting. We made our own lyrics to the theme song. Watching the series on DVD offered the opportunity to pause, rewind, rewatch, replay, and remind ourselves why this series was one of the greatest series ever made. Hyperbolic? Perhaps. But Kristen Bell is uh. may. ZING! as is everyone else associated with anything V.Mars.

From start to finish, it was friggin mesmerizing, but because we were watching with all the hardcore fans, things got a little loud so when there was a line that caused a huge reaction (laughing, yelling, clapping), the next few lines went missing. The good thing about being in such an active audience was when S and I jumped from being scared out of our seats, everyone else did the same exact thing. Us Marshmallows, we are cut from the same cloth.
The following Tuesday, I saw it for a second time with my officemate. We'd recently found out that we both liked the show, and she'd been following the kickstarter campaign for it, and we were both very excited. Seeing it for the second time? Still amazing. Here's why: watching her reactions to all the nostalgia was worth the price of the ticket itself. Then getting to hear the actual dialogue I'd missed the first time around was nice. Also, nothing scared me out of my seat this time, so I didn't miss anything while trying to recover from a panic attack. It's fun to watch other people falling in love with the movie I fell in love with just days before.
So now it's onto the books. Apparently, there are VMars books and I need to read them. What made this show great was the writing. What made this movie great was the writing and Kristen Bell and the slow-mo dancing and Tina Majorino's rockin new hairstyle and Wallace and of course Leo and Keith Mars being Keith Mars and Dick being the biggest Dick he could be and the writing again. So the books are a must.
Plus, the ending left a lot to think about, so I'm not sure if another kickstarter is going to come about, but another movie should be made. Veronica Mars Forever.
