so when i work on the computer and I’m home alone: I like a little tv with my work.
sorry for the grainy-ness but i wanted to find a picture of Veronica wearing one of the shirts i did for Free People because she wore them pretty much throughout 2nd season. this one is called ‘tropical thermal’ and i drew lots of geckos and turtles to replace the business from my amazing toucan and banana’s print the season before. I’m serious. then in third season the other blonde that lives with Mac started wearing my stuff, but that was whatever because i had already quit working there:)
I’ve been catching up on my Veronica Mars because I think I had the audacity to have a social life when it was actually on, and before there was TV on the internet but then i started thinking about how all the shows I like have strong female characters who ultimately get cancelled.
This is a part of the human TV condition. and, while it’s great to visit characters we come to care about for a while, one could argue that ultimately it’s our relationship to them that comes to matter the most. So, we should fill in the details, perhaps.
But, unfortunately, a really good show grabs me because it’s not my imagination, it’s someone else’s, and it keeps me by staying ahead of me. I don’t want to make up my tidy little stories about what happens to these characters, because life isn’t tidy, and most of it happens after you are 20, unlike the main characters of these shows.
so: in that respect: maybe it’s best we leave these players before we know their resolution…how boring would it be to watch Lindsey Weir find out that she can simply be herself in college, that Punky probably would do better with two parents, that Angela shouldn’t be with either Jordan or Brian and that Veronica should seriously drop out of school already and run for sheriff.
However, I can’t wait for the the high school reunion special of Freaks and Geeks, and Veronica Mars 2.0 the action adventure series would be pretty great.
