liret, was it you I was keeping updated on my VM progress? 'Cause I just finished disc 5, and I feel like I've been through the wringer. I want - no, sorry - NEED the next disc, NOWNOWNOW.

Okay. You don't make me like Logan (admittedly, this has been a gradual process, which makes it all the worse if/when you betray me, oh VM writers) and then dick me over. I'm just sayin'.

That kiss. Holy freakin' cow. And even before that, when he was there, fire in his eyes, to rescue her. Woof. And then, as much as he does not get on with his sister, nor even respects her, he is ready and raring to leap to her defense when she is done wrong. I don't want him to be the one who screwed V. over at that party. This will piss me off mightily. DAMN it!

*harrumph* That is all. I may just buy the series at work tomorrow. I'd probably want to watch them over again, anyway.

That has to be one of the best shows ever. I mean, the concept of it can seem a bit iffy, but then you just have these fabulous writers and actors to pull it off.

1x18 remains one of my favourite episodes. That kiss was fantastic.

What is this series even about? As far as thought it was just another one of those teen/college angsty shows with a little espianogue (sp?) thrown in for originality...

Y'know, I would have thought that, too. Before I knew Joss Whedon gave it raves, and before I started watching myself. Basically? Normal young girl (the titular heroine) lives in hoity toity SoCal town. Best friend is murdered. V's dad, the local Sheriff, believes best friend's dad (software magnate and provider of many, many local jobs) did it.

Someone else confesses, town ostracizes Dad. Mom leaves, Dad (no longer sheriff) becomes a P.I. V., having learned much from her very smart and very detective-y dad, continues to search for her best friend's killer.

That's a scant thumbnail sketch, and leaves quite a few key elements out. It really is worth watching. The writing is snappy and sharp. There is no way you won't love the guy playing her dad (Enrico Colatoni? Something like that), and Kristin Bell is beyond lovely: funny, smart, ridiculously adorable, and too freakin' talented for words (if you didn't see the musical 'Reefer Madness' a few months ago, look for it on DVD; girl can sing!)

Your icon is pure joy.

The show really hooked me. I Netflixed it, having heard good things. I intended to watch it on my own, but showed my husband the first ep because the writing was so good. Now, he's hooked too.

I can see why it has garnered so many comparisons to BTVS: the very two things you mentioned. First-rate writing and a fantastic ensemble cast. Though the subject matter is worlds away from 'Buffy,' the sensibility is the same. So, so good!

That kiss sold me on Logan in one very short moment. I don't want to say too much for fear of spoilers, but I think Logan's character development in season one was great.
