Mmmmm. I finally caught up on Veronica Mars eps 3.2 and 3.3 last night.

It’s interesting, because while I am glad for VM’s new high ratings as it’s a good show that deserves to stay on the air, I must confess my own mad pash for it is rather gone. What I loved about it: the darkness, the noir, is gone. The things that I loved about it: Veronica’s dysfunction, her outsider status, the perfect outside-rotten inside of Neptune familial life, the sharp class divisions, are gone. This isn’t noir anymore, with a cynical antihero. This is a fun, clever, smart-mouthed show. But it’s not what I signed up for. I agree with [livejournal.com profile] queenofthorns that this is a logical progression for Veronica’s character. But it doesn’t make it exciting to watch.

Not to mention my recent issues with how this show deals with feminism.

But guess what. Am still watching. You want to know why? Because whatever other changes, Logan and Veronica still bring it to the yard.

Prison experiment rant, L/V swoon )

I have also started the unfortunately named manga, Happy Hustle High. Despite the name, which makes me think of a school for gigolos (what is the Japanese name of this, I wonder), it’s delightful, fluffy, perfect little shoujo, 5 volumes long. It follows what happens when an all-girls school merges with an all-boys one.

I love the heroine, Hanabi. She is a pushy, cheerful, a bit geeky girl. Sort of like what Aya from Ayashi No Ceres was before the whole ‘you are a ceres reincarnation, your family wants to kill you’ thing cropped up. And she doesn’t get shy, or give up, or anything.

I also like the male protagonist, Yasuaki. He grew up in a family of men (his father and brothers) so he is a bit awkward with girls, but other than that, he is refreshingly normal. Plus, this mangaka really knows how to draw bishounen.

The relationship stuff is also pleasantly non OTT. I love the bit where she hasn’t shown in school for a few days so he is worried and comes to visit her and he has wild images of her being robbed or murdered, but she opens the door and she’s been glued to a video game for three days, and looks like hell and goes ‘I am Hanabina, Empress of the Jewel Empire’ (the game involves that). Heeeeeee. And he tells her to move over and they play together. ROFL. Love.

I am sitting at the computer after 2am and all of a sudden I am struck by the most obvious, ridiculous, happy Veronica Mars thought ever.

You know how I've been getting frustrated with Veronica's insistence on Duncan and a bazillion other obstacles to Veronica/Logan? Duh. I really shouldn't be annoyed at that because it's painfully clear that TPTB see Veronica/Logan as the IT couple for this show, so notwithstanding Duncan, Veronica's normalcy urges, or whatever other obstacles RT & Co. are going to throw in the path of my snarky OTP, Veronica and Logan are going to end up together anyway and the rest are just the usual tiresome contrivances used in TV land to keep apart the couple everyone knows will end up together. So, even if we discover in 2.11 that Veronica and Logan can't be together because he is actually an alien from Planet Zorg who is destined to free his people and Veronica decides to join the Nunnery out of newfound religious zeal, we all know that this will be only to prolong the suspence and it will end with the two kissing. And I can't wait to see the kissing.

Plus, it's not as if V has any other alternatives. After all, Robot Boy is bound to rust :P

Yeah, I know it's completely obvious, the V/L thing, but I am amazingly dim. Plus, I've just been rewatching The Kiss from WoCD a few times because can't sleep and...goo. Amazing goo.

That is just guuuuuh-worthy (caps from S1 arranged in a really interesting order):

Go here for the goodness

Ahhhh, I miss L/V. I especially love the section with the almost-kisses.

Come back, my ship of choice!!!!

Well, I finally got to see the ep.

Logan/Veronica interaction notwithstanding, I thought it was largely blah, mainly because the main mystery was so freaking deadly dull. Yeah, some kid's parents I've never heard of get little toy buses. Blah Blah Biddy Blah.

The other stuff was quite interesting though.

Thoughts here )

So, I decided to do the right thing for once and start watching a series from the beginning (we'll just ignore me watching the first three eps of season 2, shall we?)

Quote of the Ep: "Girls Kick Ass. I saw it on a t-shirt." (Max explaining how she dropped a 250lb bodyguard without breaking a sweat).

I really really like it. Max in the Pilot actually reminds me of Buffy. Of Buffy who hadn't accepted her "destiny" that is. I really like her mouthy tough girl act because you can see she is vulnerable underneath. And I like her cynical, hardcore act with Logan. She isn't in it for ideals. Not yet.

I also adore Logan (there really must be good karma associated with the name in TV land), who is snarky, and clever, and can walk (at least in the beginning) and reminds me of way too many grad student idealists, but in a very good way. And Max/Logan chemistry? Whoa. I love the scene where she breaks into his apartment to steal stuff, but even more, I love the scene where she comes back because he broke into her place and left her a statuette and there is snark and flirt and plot points and his knowing what she is and her being off-balance by him. HOT. And he looks even hotter when he shaves.

Plus, I have a thing for the pairings where the guy is more idealistic/intellectual of the two, and the girl is a more pragmatic, hardened fighter. See Kara/Lee, John/Aeryn. Heck, even Logan (Echolls)/Veronica where she is way tougher than he is and he is more emotional. So it totally feeds that kink.

Also, Jessica Alba=girlcrush.

ETA: I am on the third ep of first season now, and so much Logan/Max love. I love that he beeps her and she thinks it's an emergency of some kind but it's for a nice dinner instead, candles and all, and that they talk and connect and he is so concerned about her seizures and is so comforting and that she asks him to stay with herm and he strokes her forehead...guuuuuh. And then later he finds out Original Cindy flushed her meds down the toilet and gets so concerned and does all he can to bust Max out of prison. And the chemistry is still psycho. Love.
