A Veronica Mars Movie?

This video reminded me just how damn awesome the show was and how attached I am to the characters. I didn't watch it when it was on, nor the first time through when my wife bought the DVD sets. However, about a year and a half ago something piqued my curiosity and we sat down over the course of however many weeks and watched the whole three season run, and it was fantastic, though it ends rather abruptly in season three and, like so many great shows do, leaves you hanging for something that's probably never gone come...

But now it might! Creator Rob Thomas has announced a Kickstarter campaign and shot a GREAT little video to introduce us to it - and to reacquaint us with the main characters and remind us what it was we loved about the show. Seriously - this video is fantastic.

And oh what a show...

The first season of VM especially is something I would put up with the best tv has ever had to offer. For me there's Breaking Bad, then there's Twin Peaks (it's only within the last two years that that order has emerged - I've been in love with Twin Peaks since the night the pilot aired and I just happened to watch it, waaaay back in what I believe was 1990) and then number three is probably season 1 of Veronica Mars. It's just that damn good; such a strong tone that runs through the entire thing, top to bottom, front to back. And so many great and complex characters, not to mention dozen of endearing little moments that stuck in my head only to re-surface on an almost daily basis (Vinnie Van Lowe singing Hall and Oats' Private Eyes to Veronica as a makeshift threat springs to mind immediately).
