VM Canceled (According to Eonline)  
The only thing that bums me is the season will likely end on L/V not together. Stupid RT. Personally, I think he's had a pretty good idea of this for awhile and decided to do the last five episodes in such a way to piss off as many of the horrible Logan/Veronica fans as he can. I do not buy (nor have I since mid-S2) that RT does not dislike, resent, pick your word the L/V shippers and feel that it's our fault that we forced his hand in making Logan the leading man, and not Duncan and that it's our fault that he had to fire Teddy, and break up the twu wuv story of VD and he's been sticking it to us every way he can (hot n' heavy with other love interests, stupid-ass breakups, contrivances and a Veronica who clearly isn't into Logan, like he is in to her, and of course, not only no love scene EVER, but nothing close to it and knowing all we do about the final 5 eps so far, never hearing her tell him he loves her, wasting the last four of the five episodes on Piz/Veronica overload and Logan dating someone else). I will never, ever watch anything that RT has anything to do with again, unless for some reason (known to neither God, man nor fan) JD works with him again. Overall, I'm happy it's canceled, because I don't know if I could have dealt with another season of Rob Thomas' idea of "good drama."

To be honest, the show pretty much died for me in NitW. Sure, it had good episodes and good moments, but when all of the fall-out of Lilly's death, Aaron being the murderer, their affair was ignored, the events of ATttD were ignored so Rob could revisit the twu wuv of VD, KB and TPTB started making Veronica look un-Veronica like and be a holier-than-thou judgmental bitch, well I knew the show would never return to what it was with RT at the helm. S1 was a happy accident. And as far as I'm concerned the downhill trend began in NitW. Actually, I think it began in ATttD, but there was enough great stuff in that and LitB and it was part of an overall fabulous season, that it could be overlooked then. So, upset? Not really. Just bummed about lack of togetherness for L/V, but if we'd had a S4, Rob would have just brought in new love interests for them, more contrived crap and fucked it all up even more.

My hope now is that maybe Jason Dohring will get something where he's not treated like the redheaded stepchild by those in charge.

The day we’ve all dreaded has come, tubers.

With actual tears in my eyes, I must tell you that I’ve heard from several solid sources that the CW has decided not to bring Veronica Mars back for a fourth season.

Though official word has not yet come down from the network, I did hear from creator Rob Thomas earlier this week, who told me things weren’t looking good: “I’ve never been less certain of our fate. I’m afraid I’ve gone from cautiously optimistic to something less than that.”

Too tired from the rest of life to care right now, but I'm sure you know my feelings on this anyway.

I know, I'm going to be in the group of bitter fans, who can't rejoice with glee that it's done, but won't mourn in agony that's over, but also isn't sad that it didn't still have a chance (that's the category I think you fall into). I'm just bummed that we were screwed on L/V.

Again.

Fuck you, Rob Thomas.

I'm really, really, REALLY hoping that he has something, but it couldn't be announced until VM news broke -- cuz, pfft to CL getting a non-VM role, but if JD (or KB, EC) were to, that would be a pretty bright neon clue. So fingers crossed that SOMETHING is there and will be announced soon.

Right, I still mourn what could have been, but I'm so glad it's finally over because with RT at the helm, it would NEVER have happened.
Hey, wait, what's going on?mycenae on March 16th, 2007 02:33 am (UTC)
Meh.

I find myself largely unable to care. It was just really annoying how V/L became one of the suckiest things about the show, instead of a major draw. They could have been a cool investigative team, dammit! *watches Bones instead*
Arabian: ATttD - Sorryarabian on March 16th, 2007 02:43 am (UTC)
I'm not at 'meh,' as I said above, because I'm still desperately drawn to L/V and could appreciate almost every scene with them just because the chemistry was so good, and try as she did to fight it, JD always brought out the best in KB.

Still, RT so fucked it up. SOOOOOOOOO fucked it up. See, I'm still angry about it, I wish I didn't care.

The only thing that pisses me off about this is that L/V won't be together at the end (I assume - I'm not reading spoilers anymore). I second that "Fuck you, RT"! He took an awesome, promising show and ran it right into the ground. JD better get something else that will let him shine.

Just basically a big, fat honking WORD to your post.

I'm not sure I believe it yet. KV is not exactly Ms. Reliable. But if it is true, I feel mostly relief tinged with sadness. Mostly, I want to see JD get on something really stellar, like next WEEK. If that happens, I'll do a happy dance that VM was cancelled in time to free him up. Otherwise well, relief and sadness. It was once great, then it was uneven-to-downright-bad but with tantalizing flashes of what could have been.

IOW, what Wendy said.
Arabian: Doylearabian on March 16th, 2007 02:45 am (UTC)
Yup, yup, yup and another yup. I tend to believe it, not because of KV, but because I've heard from a source who has lots of reliable sources too that it was canceled.
secrets_and_liesecrets_and_lie on March 16th, 2007 02:58 am (UTC)
That sounds like it, then.

I have maybe a dumb question -- once the VM boards are closed, how will word spread about JD being cast in anything? He doesn't have an official website or email list or anything...

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Uncork the champagne, folks! I am *so* happy, I just ate half a cake.

The emotion I most feel is regret. Regret for what could have been with the show and regret that it lost me so much I don't feel bad it's ending. I hope JD gets a fabulous new role SOON where he's truly valued.

It's just sad that things went so awry. The first season was one of the best seasons of anything EVER, and then, well, NItW happened, which I agree was the point when it all started going wrong.

RT just joins the sadly long list of TV producers who started great, let success go to their head and then let their egos overrun the show. I just hope to God he doesn't end up working on FNL if it gets another season!

I'm a little sad that I'm not more depressed over this considering how obsessed I was with this show. I think I'm most upset that (if it is indeed cancelled) that I won't be seeing Jason Dohring every week. I really hope he gets something else soon so we can still see him next season.
