Though ratings are rarely the best way to determine a show’s specific impact on society at large, each year’s top-rated shows often lack a surprising number of much-talked-about series, and here are 7 shows whose fame was far more prevalent by word-of-mouth over eyes-on-screens.
For the marshmallows that were hoping that last year’s Kickstarted feature wouldn’t be the last time the Neptune sleuth took the case, it seems as if a continuation could very well be the cards later down the line, in a new format altogether.
Here, we’re shining a spotlight on ten of the worst offenders when it comes to great TV shows that got increasingly more frustrating as time went by. The shows that started off fantastic and eventually got lost in the smokescreen of their own wheel-spinning.
We've known for a while now that Veronica Mars was getting the web series treatment in the form of a digital series centered on Ryan Hansen and his (fictional) efforts to get a Dick Casablancas spinoff series off the ground. Today brings word of the confirmed cast for the series, and well, it's pretty much everyone.
A long time ago, we used to be friends. And then the CW cancelled Veronica Mars. Some of us ranted. Most of us moved on. But we were all drawn back to Neptune the moment Rob Thomas gave us hope that we would have our favorite Marshmallow back in movie form if we helped Kickstart it.
Let me guess, since they announced the Veronica Mars movie, you’ve been dying rewatch the entire series from start to finish. Or maybe you’ve never seen it and you’ve been looking for a way to get caught up without having to shell out for the DVDs. It stood to reason that Warner Bros. would give people the opportunity to do that ahead of the film’s release.
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas knows a thing or two about smart, witty detectives, but what does he know about zombies? We may find out, as Thomas is reportedly reuniting with VM executive producer Diane Ruggiero for an adaptation of DC’s iZombie. And we can add this to the list of DC properties CW is looking to develop (see also Hourman, Flash, and of course, the currently airing Arrow).
Earlier this year, Parks & Recreation's Mike Schur admitted that he and his writing staff come up with an end to the show "every three months" due to NBC's reluctance to renew the series unless it is at the zero hour. Well, Season 6 is set to premiere on September 26th (with an hour long episode) and is wasting no time in bringing in some recognizable guest stars to help out the season, including House of Lies' and Veronica Mars actress Kristen Bell.
For the passionate TV fan, it's not difficult to find great TV-related panels at Comic-Con. In fact, the real challenge is trying to figure out how to get to all of the great panels in a given day, which is virtually impossible. When it comes down to it, it's all about prioritizing. And Friday's schedule is a prime example. Is it possible to get to the Adventure Time panel at the Hilton and also make The Walking Dead panel over in Hall H?
I like to think that, if done right, a series will make a promise to its viewers in the pilot episode. It offers a hint of its potential with the assurance that, if the viewer keeps watching, they will be rewarded with a satisfying conclusion. Many shows fail to live up to that, while some aim but miss the mark, and others lose their way entirely. “Leave it to Beaver” hit the target perfectly, laying to rest the ghost of Lily Kane and offering various other pieces of resolution as a reward to faithful viewers.
Hearing any news related to actress Charisma Carpenter usually inspires me to think of her role as Cordelia in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, however the role she’ll be playing in an upcoming episode of Burn Notice actually sounds a bit more like the woman she played in Veronica Mars.
I love hearing casting news about former Veronica Mars stars. In this case, I’m referring to Ryan Hansen, who has been cast to star in NBC’s comedy pilot Lovelives.
Rob Thomas is making a return to network TV! For fans of Matchbox Twenty, disregard. This is a different Rob Thomas. Fans of Party Down and Veronica Mars, read on!
Earlier today we got an update from writer Rob Thomas on his continued interest in making a Veronica Mars movie. In the write-up of his comments, Katey mentioned that I said I thought the film could work and I’m sticking to that
Starz subscribers will be getting more of Ryan Hansen’s egotistically-charged humor when Party Down returns next month and it seems the Veronica Mars alum will be even busier on the small screen now that he’s been cast in a new NBC comedy pilot.
