At thecw (here, more specifically) I made a post asking what shows everyone there plans on watching on The CW next season. While many have said that they will be watching Veronica Mars, there are still a lot of people that won't be. So, I decided that we need to alert those planning on watching other shows on The CW that they should give Veronica Mars a chance. I don't want us to bombard them with post after post, because if any other show did that to me I would be annoyed, so I want us to compile one superpost on Why You Should Give Veronica Mars a Chance.

I want everything you can give me, testimonials, picspams, quotes, summaries, links, anything you think we should give to fans of Supernatural, One Tree Hill, Gilmore Girls, and other CW shows to get them to give Veronica a chance.

Thanks for posting that. I didn't know about that community. I joined, and voted in your poll.

Also, can you post this in the main veronica_mars community too? Or can I post a link to the poll? Thanks.

The poll is not really a contest, though. The interesting thing about it is that it shows that some people in the community are not yet planning to watch VM and therefore it would be cool if we could convince them. I don't think having a lot of votes for VM in the poll is the way to go about that, though. Instead, as pumpkins_n_pups suggests, we might want to make an awesome post to convince those holdouts that the show is worth checking out.

Yep, I just think more people would want to join the community, if they knew about it. The numbers in this community are small compared to the general comm.

Ah. Yes. Totally true. Sorry I misunderstood. The comm is definitely worth spreading around and will likely be of interest to a lot of people who watch any of next season's CW shows.

I think this would be a good time for music videos. Invite other people to post good vids from their shows, and give them the one linked here.

It's a vid you've probably seen before, by naty_, but it has the time and day fixed so that it's current. It's a S1 trailer type video that doesn't give away the ending. I'll get my "cheet sheet" for the next S2 rerun ready so that they can tune into that if they want and they'll understand what's going on (it's the episode with Kevin Smith, so maybe that will intrigue a few people).

I'm sure there are good picspams, but nothing comes to mind immediately. We do, however, have some good show descriptions from critics that were linked in a post in this comm a while back, and there are probably some great more recent ones we could dig up. This comm would also be the perfect place to offer a show exchange (e.g. "I will watch Supernatural if you will watch VM, and then we will trade notes and discuss and it will be great CW-themed fun")

Watch Veronica Mars Dammit! (Part of my obsession can be blamed on this post)
An Explanation of Veronica Mars
_jems_' pic spam second part


buffyx made an amazing s1 video. It DOES reveal the ending, but it's mixed in with Veronica's other assumptions (i.e. Jake, Duncan, etc), that unless you know the ending, it could go any way. Anyhow, the original video post is here. It's been a few months so the link is dead, but I uploaded it here if you want to check it out. I think it would be perfect for snagging some new viewers.

The Pilot - With Toys! This is mostly for my own amusement, but it's just...too cool.

I have a few more posts to suggest, but I'll have to dig around for those. :)
