I know what many Veronica Mars fans are doing tonight...binge watching the complete first season of the 2019 Veronica Mars reboot, which released to DVD today.  I was a huge fan of Veronica Mars when it first aired on television years ago, and like so many fans of the series, hoped that there would either be a reunion show or a reboot.  Well, we all got our prayers answered when it was announced that Veronica Mars was returning and would be streaming on Hulu.  I ended up signing up for Hulu just to watch this much talked about series and was so glad that I did, as the first season of Veronica Mars was so good.  

Just like I did with the television series, I was hoping to start a collection of Veronica Mars season DVDs so that I could watch my favorite episodes time and again.  So, when I heard that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment was releasing the complete first season of the Hulu streamed Veronica Mars series, I jumped at the opportunity to review it, so that I could start a new Veronica Mars DVD collection.  Even though I only received the Veronica Mars (2019): The Complete First Season DVD a few days ago, it didn't take me long to watch all 8 full-length episodes, as well as bonus content that make us this new release (available in stores and through online retailers starting today).  I really enjoyed watching the episodes over again and found little bits and pieces either I missed the first time I watched the season, or forgot about. Now, I am ready for more Veronica Mars seasons, and hope this streaming series lasts for a long time...if not, I will have this and all the previous Veronica Mars DVDs from the hit television series to watch, and get my Veronica Mars fix. :-)

  1. I love Veronica Mars! I actually watched this season off of Hulu, but it's nice to know there's a DVD option for it. I find it a little confusing that they label this "the complete first season" since the show has the exact same name as the original series. In my head, this was the fourth season.
