Veronica Mars is the best show on television right now. See: Note the amount of postings on the latest episode and the ranking vs other quality TV shows like Lost or Desperate Housewives.

I haven't watched Mars , but Lost is the bet new show I've seen on TV in quite a long time. It's hard for me to imagine anything topping it.

I love your site. It's delish.

Pudie, I agree that Lost is a good show. But imagine Lost with 5 times the continuity and references to previous episodes; answers to old mysteries, clues, and new questions all coming and going at 10 times the pace; and 20 times the "Omigod" factor. That's Veronica Mars.

Interesting. It always looked like a show that should be on WB to me. I'll have to check out the DVD.

Sad sad, we don't get Veronica Mars up here in Canada. The end of the year, I hear. But I love Lost. Love the site... crashing disappointment when there's no update. It makes my workday so sad.
