Kristen Bell as Veronica Mars on Hulu’s Veronica Mars season 4. I have been a huge fan of Kristen Bell since the very start of the Veronica Mars series and the show still has a secure spot in my top 5 series of all time. I was so disappointed when the show ended after three seasons, but was pleased when fans finally got to see the movie and I have been counting the days until the release of season 4 on Hulu, which surprise….it’s out a week early!!!!! What???!!!!
I’m so glad I finished my re-watch of the series early so that I can binge-watch all weekend and I have to say that Kristen Bell is still as charming as ever. Veronica Mars may have more of a mature feel now, but that makes sense since we aren’t in high school anymore. Veronica still sticks to her roots, challenging authority, taking chances, and speaking her mind, which brings quite a few laughs along the way. She may be a marshmallow now, but she is also quite the bad-ass and I am having so much fun watching the new season. **Please note spoilers have been left out for your convenience so feel free to read on!
One of the reasons why I love Veronica Mars so much as a character is because she is far from perfect. Sure, she tends to be the one to solve the case and she often notices clues before the local Sheriff’s office, but she is also guarded with major trust issues, which can get in the way of some of her friendships and relationships. Veronica has a supporting father, some great friendships, and an amazing boyfriend, but she tends to do things on her own.
Some of my favorite moments with her are when she lets that guard down and is finally vulnerable, revealing her doubts and insecurities. I connect with her so much and my heart has broken along with hers over the years. Through it all, Veronica Mars continues to stay true to herself, reminding us that our purpose is sometimes right in front of us.
What’s next for Veronica Mars? We’ll have to wait and see, but I’m wondering if a season 5 is possible? The premise of the show allows a new case or mystery to set the scene and I have been loving the fun cameos and nostalgia sprinkled in across season 4. I’ll always be a Veronica Mars fan for life and Kristen Bell’s performance is real, inspiring, and super fun too! If you haven’t seen the show yet, all of the episodes (seasons 1-4) are now streaming on Hulu and you can watch the movie on HBO GO/Now. That’s all for now Marshmallows! Enjoy the binge-watch!
Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!
