Summer Pickups: Disc 2 Report

Well, I thought I'd be moving through my summer pickups at a much faster pace than I am.  Not that I'm complaining - there's plenty of summer left and only a limited number of TV-on-DVD sets.  So now I'm about a third of the way through both Boston Legal and Veronica Mars, and I'm enjoying them both more and more.

I was afraid Boston Legal would start feeling tired or spiral too far into the realm of the ridiculous, but the show actually does a very good job at staying grounded when it needs to be.  The antics of the main characters don't go unnoticed by the powers-that-be, and various situations arise that humanize both Denny and Alan, making them seem just a little bit vulnerable.  I also like that the show does find plenty of time to steer away from the craziness and add some serious drama.

Veronica Mars continues to get better.  They've done a fantastic job at keeping the overall mystery floating above each episode's storyline, and every now and then another piece of the puzzle gets worked into the plot.  Surprisingly, none of this seems forced, and the high school setting has really stopped bothering me.

As I make my way through the first seasons of these two shows, I'm starting to get a little nervous about the next round.  I hope I'll be able to cram both in before they enter their third season!  Either way, I'm glad I hopped on board with both of these excellent shows.

Just caught my first full episode of Veronica Mars last night. Really interesting show, I'll definitely make an attempt to tune in this fall on the CW.
