Who killed Lilly Kane?


This Amanda Seyfried layout in Italian Vogue - and the fact I have finally finished watching season three** - means this is a good time to mention Veronica Mars. If you have not seen the show, please consider doing so. The first season is some of the best television in any genre, ever.*** Think 90210 produced by David Lynch and directed by Joss Whedon.

Also, Kristen Bell.

* Courtesy of Agent Bedhead who also forwards this Pajiba review of Veronica Mars season one. I did not read the piece until I had watched all three seasons but I am funny that way.
** The Sister of the Flea told me to watch it several years ago. It took me a while to catch up.
*** Yes, including Deadwood, Rome and The Wire. I also think the Fantasy Island pilot kicks ass.

The Pajiba review has almost convinced me I need to watch that show. Despite the presence of annoying Elle Bishop who ruined Heroes' second season. Well her and the gawdawful writing. And story pacing. And acting. And everything else.

There was an initial weirdness as I too knew Kristen Bell first as Elle Bishop. After episode one that goes away; she is Veronica Mars. I have developed an affection for many of the other characters too. It is brilliant piece of work, that first season is a masterpiece.

And Amanda Seyfried I knew first from Big Love. Again, her character in Veronica Mars leaves a much stronger impression.
