Because of baseball, all my weekly television has been on hold. (This would be Arrested Development, House, and The Simpsons and all the animation on after it.) With Battlestar Galactica on its midseason break, that leaves nothing on TV.

So I finally bit the bullet and downloaded the first season of Veronica Mars. It was Joss Whedon's glowing review that finally pushed me over the edge. ("It's the Harry Potter of shows.")

After getting over the initial disappointment of Veronica not being a Martian, I've come to like the show. It's kind of like Buffy, but with no supernaturalism and a better story. (Mind you, I'm only on season 2 of Buffy.) Ep 104, despite its entertaining "Real Genius" gamer B story, had such a well written "high school drama" A story that I was just... perturbed by the end of it. Season 2 is on my mythtv recording schedule now.

Veronica Mars's first season gets like one hundred times better at it goes along. I was impressed by the last few episodes in that they actually delivered a resolution in a way that few tv mystery series really do.
