The link is for this week's 411 column. I re-hash the just-completed TV season and go into my reasons why Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci are the least sexual couple ever. You know you're intrigued: Happy Hour 05.30.05.
The nod is to UPN's Veronica Mars, a show I'm determined to catch up with this summer. Thankfully, Canadian television is proving itself invaluable in this regard. I caught the pilot episode last night on CTV, and I really liked what I saw.
It seems to get compared to Buffy the Vampire Slayer a lot, although the differences are plenty. I like how the Veronica character is a tough girl - not superpower tough like Buffy but actually in possession of some backbone, and in a variety of social settings. I also like how it set up mysteries on multiple levels in a short amount of time. Hopefully I can find a way to squeeze an entire season of this show in before the fall.
