Veronica Mars: Pilot  Rewatch   Season 1, Ep 1

Introductions all around! Veronica Mars is a junior at Neptune High, formerly popular with the rich kids, now an outcast. Her best friend was killed, her boyfriend dumped her, she was roofied. Her father used to be Sheriff, but now he's a private eye, and Veronica helps him while solving her own high-school drama mysteries. This week's episode introduces Wallace, a new student at Neptune who is targeted by the local biker gang. Veronica Mars was first broadcast in 2004, just after Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended, and in a lot of ways it directly took up the mantle of kick-ass blonde high school girl empowerment. Never a ratings success, it was a critical darling from the start. [more inside]

Movie: Stalker

In Andrei Tarkovsky's Russian-language masterpiece, a Stalker leads two men into the Zone – an alien place guarded by barbed wire and soldiers – to find the Room, a place where it is believed one's secret hopes come true. Adapted by its authors from the book Roadside Picnic, Stalker (trailer) is a beautiful, ponderous, dreamlike film – one which, though difficult to summarize, commonly ranks among the greatest films of all time.
