TV Review: 'Veronica Mars'
Creator/exec producer Rob Thomas, the author of four novels and a collection of short stories, originally figured Veronica Mars to be the main character in a forthcoming book, which perhaps explains the complexity of the character.
Kristen Bell rings true
Teen mystery proves UPN's gotten a clue
UPN's new teen detective is no Nancy Drew
When Rob Thomas, creator and executive producer of the new UPN series "Veronica Mars," first dreamed up the teen detective series, the main character was male.
Even more here.

..."Veronica Mars" already is showing signs of being network television's next "Buffy," only set in an oceanside community called Neptune.

I like the way she describes Veronica, although (probably like most of you, based on the comments I've seen), I disagree with the "wonderful father/daughter dynamic" part of her piece. Also, she brings up the "Nancy Drew" comparisons, but doesn't really follow through with an actual statement that they are bullshit. Also, of course, I've gone on record here as being against the "Scooby gang" approach, and she likes that--but at least it's a perceptive comparison.

went to an upgrade notice, and navigating from the UPN main page took you to a lame-o generic "meet the cast" site,
Now, today, if you open "all shows" and pick VM, you still go to the "meet the cast" site, but the original, non-templated wall of normal site is working again and has a new diary entry, which isn't as stupidly written as the new case file. You can also navigate to it by clicking on VM link under "featured shows" on the UPN homepage. Strange, no?
(Of course, by the time you read this it will probably be different, but both sites are active as of now.)

The only production problem I've noticed is that the sound mix is off occasionally, so that sometimes the dialogue is drowned out by the background noise and music.
I've noticed that too, but I think that's as much the actors not enunciating their lines properly as anything. I always understand what Veronica's saying, not so much the Boys of Prep (Troy in particular).
The production values seem about right for a UPN show; not dazzling but certainly not shoddy either.

It seems we got another viewer.
Note to my loyal readers who've been haranguing, er, encouraging me to watch Veronica Mars: Because the Veep face-off was scheduled for 9 pm/ET tonight, UPN feared their girl detective would be clobbered in the ratings. So they opted to air a rerun this week instead of an original episode. Smart move. I promise to check out Ms. Mars later on, kids.

If you aren't watching "Veronica Mars" (Tuesday, UPN, 9 p.m.) I would like a short essay as to why not. And the answer better not be that you are watching "One Tree Hill" (Tuesday, WB, 9 p.m.) instead or I'm giving you all a TV time out. Watching the smart, clever, sassy and independent women of "Gilmore Girls" and "Veronica Mars" back-to-back is a nice antidote to the women of "Survivor" and "The Apprentice."

UPN GAMBLING ON NEW 'QUALITY SHOW' STRATEGY
Hollywood — Executives at UPN are celebrating the initial critical acclaim and improved ratings their new "quality show" strategy is netting for the low-performing network. The success of shows such as "Kevin Hill" and "Veronica Mars" has validated the risk entertainment president Dawn Ostroff took when she abandoned UPN's long-standing business plan to air the worst crap available, commonly known as the "'Shasta McNasty' strategy."

It has a two-thirds of a page story about the show - what it is about, why they like it and what you need to know to watch.
For context the other 4 shows are Desperate Housewives, Arrested Development, The Wire and Lost.
