If you need proof of how iconic Veronica Mars has become, we'll point you in the direction of the show's incredibly dedicated fanbase. Six years after the show was cancelled, fans have still refused to move on from the sassy, smart-talking teenage private investigator, who deals just as well with high school drama as she does with a homicide case. The show's fans pledged $2 million dollars on it's Kickstarter, helping the Veronica Mars movie start its journey to becoming a reality. It took less than ten hours to raise their goal, making it the fastest Kickstarter ever to reach $1 million, in four hours. Some people are speculating, since it's already at $3.5 million with 26 days left, that it will raise $10 million. If you're wondering why fans would fork over their hard earned cash for something like getting a show its own movie, you obviously never checked out the series on Netflix.
Don't write it off as a teenage drama. Well, it is, but don't write it off. Along with the typical teen drama stuff (you know, not fitting in, drug abuse-after school special junk) there's also the addicting series-long mystery of who murdered Veronica's best friend. —TA
