So, Veronica Mars is cancelled.

You know what's really sad? How much I don't care. When I thought there wa s apossibility it wasn't going to get renewed after S2, I was all upset (even though I liked S1 much much better), but the sad thing here? I am like 'oh, whatever, when's BSG on?' I am not even 'yay, bad show, get what you deserve' type glee which is acutally the opposite side of the coin of fandom love: you still care, even if negatively. I honestly don't care at all (if I heard it got renewed miraculously, I'd be 'oh, ok' which is same as my cancellation reaction) and that's a bit sad. But then, I haven't even watched most of this season, having given up midway through.

Actually (and this is an unpopular fandom opinion), I really don't think it's CW's fault or Rob Thomas' fault or Kristin Bell's fault or whatever. Veronica Mars was a one season show that unfortunately ran for three. It had one, single, story to tell. Once it finished it at the end of S1, it was done. (Significantly, the parts in S2 that worked the best were ones that tied back to S1 stuff, and S3 which jettisoned original story completely was barely watchable). It was never meant to be a regular show, with a story that could run for years. Here is where American TV format is so screwy. Veronica was meant to be a drama (22 episodes, perfect drama length anyway! :P) like the ones they do on Asian TV channels, or maybe a much shorter version of a Latin American telenovela. Beginning, middle, and an end. It could never find itself in a normal show format.

So, thanks for all the good times, show. You won't be missed (by me) and that is sad.
