929 Minutes - that's what the back cover of VERONICA MARS SEASON 2 declares its total running time is. That translates to about 15 and a half hours of television time. Which, upon doing the math, means Michele and I have spent 50% of our time from Friday night beginning at 6pm until midnight Saturday watching this addictive tv show. Oh, could I be judged for this one.... those that despise the "boob tube" would shake their head in shame toward us. But, oh how fun it was!!!! Lisa and Stephie joined us for the first 12 episode marathon (actually we joined Stephie as it was at her house) - throw KFC (my favorite food), fountain pops, lots of candy and popcorn into the mix- and yes, it was everything I had hoped it would be. The rest of the viewing was just with Michele - cuddled on Mikayla's bed watching it from the laptop while the kids happily played yesterday. The final episodes were viewed after going on the lake last night. When the finale was over, we hit the gag reel, and the "A Day in the Life" reel - it was hard to accept reality that our journey was over.
Two things offer hope now that our fun is exhausted - one, Steph and Lisa still need to view the last half, and we can re-watch with them. Two, Season 3 beings on October 3rd. After catching up with two seasons of this series within the last month - it will be a little torturous to have to go back to the "old fashioned way" of watching one episode per week. Oh well, I'll be there.
