Showbiz News That May Interest Our Readers

So, it seems that Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell put an internet shout out yesterday to the fans..."Help us make a Veronica Mars movie!"

And the fans responded quite generously--at a record-setting pace. There were over two million dollars pledged within 10 hours of the kickstarter page going online. The total now is just north of $3.4 million. If you're late to the party, we're sorry to inform you that the $10K bit-part-in-the-movie bonuses are already sold out.

Quite a day for the VM fans out there. TSG never really got into the show (frankly, we never got past the opening scenes of the first episode), but on the strength of this breaking news we went out and picked up the Season One set (just $9.95!).  We're a couple of episodes in now, and we like what we've seen so far.  It's kind of sad knowing in advance that the 3rd season [apparently] took a real nosedive before the show was finally cancelled.
