Hi everyone, I'm new here but have been a huge VM fan for about a year. Here's my idea:

Bomb Netflix.

If you have a Netflix account, you can influence who will receive recommendations to watch Veronica Mars on DVD. Here's how.

1. If you don't have a Friends list on Netflix, click on that tab in the header and hunt down friends or family and request to be added as their "friend" and vice versa. You only need one email address - Netflix does the rest. Based on your ratings/preferences and theirs, Veronica Mars may show up as recommended for those folks with similar taste.


2. Search for either VM season and rank it 5 stars. (of course, it is already incredibly highly rated, but it doesn't hurt and people on your Netflix f-list will see your ratings.


3. If you haven't already rated a bunch of other shows similar to VM, go do that. Search for Buffy, Serenity, etc, or search for Veronica Mars and look on the left of the screen - it will show a list of other shows that people who have rated VM highly ALSO like. If you've seen them, rate them. Globally, this can make VM show up on people's recommendations lists even if they've never heard of the show.

4. Search for either VM season and look near the top right. There should be a purplish button that says "know someone who'd enjoy it? leave a note." Click on this and you'll be taken to your friends page and asked to write a comment about the awesomeness of the show and click on people in your f-list to send this note to.

5. Below that purplish button it says "have an opinion about it? write a review" -- write a rave review. People do read them!

Small/easy/might make a difference.
