So, the Veronica Mars season three premiere is streaming at MSN.com, and I’ve watched it. Twice, in fact. My thoughts on the episode are after the jump, so go watch it, then come back and let’s gossip about it!
The Veronica Mars season three premiere, Welcome Wagon, is live and streaming now at MSN.
Shortcut to watch: crack open Windows Media Player, go to File > Open URL, and paste this in:
(from chris1010 on the Television Without Pity boards.)
Love the new credits! Watch them here.
Kate Hudson has six toes. Not total; on one foot.
Chris Lowell has totally won me over. He’s playing new guy Piz on Veronica Mars, and you can catch a bunch of cast member interviews here from The CW launch party (click on the video player on the right). Warning: I’ve heard that Julie Gonzalo interview is a little spoilery.
Great Veronica Mars interview with Rob Thomas here, with a couple mild plot spoilers and a couple awesome casting ones (two words: Homer Simpson). But the real reason you should click on that link is the promo photo of Logan and Veronica together … it’s like 60% hot, 40% weird.
Also, as of this writing, there is less than a week until the season premiere is available online. That’s like, 100% exciting.
Do you have nightmares of Tyra Banks calling you in the middle of the night and yelling “HOLLA!” in your ear? Do you know someone who shares this fear? Inflict the pain on them here.
Season premiere of America’s Next Top Model tomorrow on The CW!
The creators of Lost spilled the answer in a video for the Lost Experience online. Watch below:
So basically, there’s some barely plausible explanation about how the numbers relate to the destruction of humanity. They keep referring to them as an “equation,” when we all know that generally you need an equals sign or an x or y to have one of those. And then some crazy dude is going to unleash a virus. Creepy!
Matt Roush is hyping tonight’s premiere of The Amazing Race, on CBS at 8:30. I’ll be watching a little Sunday night football, but I’m definitely taping this to catch later.
As long as I’m thinking about reality tv, let’s have a moment of silence for Project Runway‘s Kayne. Even though some of his outfits were a little fugly, Kayne truly had some moments of glory, especially that incredible Marilyn Monroe leather dress. He’s going to have a great career ahead of him.
Michael Ausiello has seen the Veronica Mars season premiere, and the word is: it’s amazing. Well, I wouldn’t expect anything less. And guess what: apparently there’s a little Battlestar Galactica crossover action! Love it. Those two shows are probably my favorite two dramas on tv (with Lost at number three), so I’m getting giddy just thinking about this.
The CW website has streaming video of a scene from the Veronica Mars season three premiere episode, “Welcome Wagon.” The scene’s a rough cut, but you get a nice long look at new cast member Chris Lowell. Anyway, it’s not super exciting, but definitely enough to make you salivate in anticipation of the October 3rd premiere.
Of course, this isn’t much of a shocker, but Benji Schwimmer turned down the So You Think You Can Dance prize of a year-long contract with Celine Dion’s Las Vegas show. Read more about the contestants and the tour here. Among other bits of news, Allison Holker might be back for the High School Musical sequel. Let’s hope she has a line this time!
Catch the pilot episode here. Seriously, though, go watch it!
Wow, the word “oodles” looks pretty ridiculous when typed out. So much Veronica-related news today! First, there’s some coverage in this week’s Ask Ausiello, including a spoiler that should provoke major speculation. I wish I hadn’t seen it, so I’ll spare you and tell you the noteworthy less-spoilery news: Alona Tal (the recently deceased cheerleader baby-mama Meg) will be doing a long-term series of guest appearances on Supernatural. And, as hinted at by Rob Thomas in an earlier interview, James Jordan (suicidal janitor Lucky) will be returning to Veronica Mars, playing a different character: Tim Foyle, a TA in one of Veronica’s classes. A TA who looks strangely like a suicidal janitor Veronica once knew. Yeah, that’s going to annoy me.
Next, check out stills from Kristen Bell’s new movie Fanboys, including one where she’s dressed in full Princess Leia regalia.
Also, American Eagle will be sponsoring commercial segments on Veronica Mars, and also promoting the show in its stores. Seems like a good fit.
Did anyone catch Harry Hamlin on Dancing with the Stars last night? Two left feet? Hidden talent? What’s the word?
Not the singer, duh. I’m talking about the best actor of his generation: Michael Cera, a.k.a. George Michael Bluth from Arrested Development. Why all the hyperbole? I don’t know, I just really like this guy. Anyway, here’s an interview.
