When the fans pay for a movie, they get a movie made for the fans. At least that’s how director Rob Thomas felt about making the Veronica Mars theatrical film, released some seven years after the untimely demise of the cult tv show starring Kristen Bell as the lovably snarky Nancy Drew-ish gumshoe. But how does this work for folks who aren’t slavering Mars fanatics?

Well, you won’t find out on this podcast. Beau and Chris, both dedicated followers of the Mars cult, are joined in their worship by two folks from the Infinite Variations spaceship (and the old LEOG show, to boot), Harris and Cat O’Malley. Much fandom is indulged in while talking about Veronica’s latest adventure in the city of Neptune, CA. If you’re one of this specific US, give it a listen. You’ll be rushing to give a VOD choice your credit card number, I suspect.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
