Sadness, with a surprising side of happy

I have heard very depressing rumors that one of my favorite shows is not coming back next season. I am sticking with “rumor” because there was no Series Finale, only a Season Finale, and I haven’t had the heart to ask the internets if they know anything more definite.

So where’s the happy, you ask? The happy is when I turned on my fancy DVR box today and discovered that the Veronica Mars episode recorded last night may have been a rerun, but it sure is new to me! I thought for sure that I had seen all of this season’s episodes, but happily I was wrong. Now I get one last taste of the witty goodness that is Veronica Mars.

Seriously, people, why doesn’t good TV get to stay on TV? Please tell me that at least One Tree Hill is also getting the axe. Cause if that crap gets to stay on TV and Veronica is gone… bleh.

    I’m afraid you can make it a little stronger than rumor, Kim. The creators allegedly pitched a version of the show where Veronica goes to the FBI Academy after high school, but the CW took a pass. Rob Thomas says it may reappear as a movie to tie up loose ends, though.

    Have no fear, One Tree Hill will be back for at least one more season. Ain’t TV grand?

    My hope in good programming on TV, while fading over the years, finally died last week when CNN broke news coverage of important topics such as congress and the war in Iraq to show that Paris Hilton was getting into a police car on her way to jail. Okay, so congress and the war aren’t that good lately either. Anybody feel like they’re in a Roman Era sequel? Is UFC our new Gladiator?

    I’ve just discovered the wonderful world of Veronica Mars myself! We just finished watching the last 5 episodes of season 2 last night (no, we don’t have a life), so now I have to wait for season 3 to come out on DVD. So sad that she won’t be back though. I did hear that she’s going to be the narrarator of the new CW show called Gossip Girls (I think).

    Another possibility is that her story may continue in comic books – at least that’s what I read on Pop Candy (http://blogs.usatoday.com/popcandy/2007/06/could_veronica_.html?csp=34).

    I’m not sure how to feel about Veronica Mars as a comic book. I’ve never actually read a comic book, so maybe I shouldn’t automatically assume that it’s a crappy idea, but… I can’t see it being anywhere near as fun to read as it is to watch. I think it may lose the “something” that I love in the media-shift. (is there an appropriate term for that? or is media-shift ok? I may have to wikipedia that one.)
