I guess we all knew this day was coming sooner or later, huh?

From Rick Pickett, graphic designer extraordinaire (he made all the flyers and websites on the show, including TWoP shoutouts and other freeze-frame Easter egg goodies!)

Television Without Pity's VM farewell thread (that quote just makes me sniffle)

Brilliant But Cancelled's obit... need we say more?

Another nice tribute to Veronica, young feminist hero. I'm glad the character will go down in pop culture history as a positive icon on the role model-ledger.

Scroll through this page to get some quality tributes, haiku-style

Farewell from the Chicago Trib TV critic

The AV Club weighs in

Pajiba manages to find the snark in the travesty

This photo credit is funny but sad. And I believe the guy in the picture stars in the show that will be on The CW on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Sniff.

Even the quasi-official affiliate (not network) blog The CW Source has a pretty nice eulogy up.

And finally, in conclusion:

So, savor every last second of the last two episodes. Every quip, every venetian blind shadow cast in the background, every Keith/Veronica moment, every Logan Echolls brooding puppy dog look, every everything. Because this is it kids.

WAAAAH!

It's official. It's so official. Ugh, it's not like I wasn't expecting it, but ouch.

Anyway, here're some interesting links I've wandered upon in my state of numbness (please add your own if you'd like):

Veronica Mars is back, which means so are we! I apologize for not putting up a link to our podcast (or should I say, rantcast) on last week's public service announcement -- I mean, episode.

Our much cheerier thoughts on this week's episode are also up! Check them out at our site, on iTunes or on Podomatic. I don't even know what that last one is! Apologies for the poor audio quality on my end, but we do have sterling sound clips of all of Paul Rudd's singing, and that should be worth the price of admission alone!

While listening to our latest podcast, I realized I totally zoned and forgot to mention two interesting pieces of musical trivia about the episode. Its title, "Debasement Tapes," is a pun on the Bob Dylan album "The Basement Tapes." Also, in my favorite scene (aka Mars vs. Ratner III), Veronica's "That's a thing that makes you go... hmm" line is a reference to the C & C Music Factory song (well, originally. That phrase pops up everywhere nowadays).

A few more links and announcements:

The only way we can possibly improve on our greatness is by getting feedback, so please, take a minute to fill out our listeners' survey.

Next week's episode looks like it will feature the real-life grassroots organization Invisible Children, a group dedicated to raising awareness and aid for children in northern Uganda who live under constant danger of being kidnapped by the rebel Lord's Resistance Army and forced into becoming soldiers (killers). They've produced an amazing, moving documentary as well as several other media campaigns, which is impressive considering the group was founded just a couple of years ago by three young surfer guys from San Diego (one of whom is Ryan Hansen's brother-in-law). Please take a moment to check out IC's website, view some of their media and educate yourself.

Subject: Bad News for VM?
Security: Public
Mood:distressed
Much to my schadenfreude-lusting dismay, the Pussycat Dolls reality show that is currently airing while VM is on hiatus is not only not an abysmal failure, but is actually somewhat of an early CW triumph.

The show gave the fledgling netlet its best-ever ratings in the Tuesday 9 p.m. time slot, beating ABC, CBS and NBC and coming in second for the hour in coveted CW demos like adults and women 18-34. Crucially, the Pussycat Dolls also built on its Gilmore Girls lead-in, improving 29% in teens and 26% in female teens, a feat Veronica Mars has little hope of accomplishing.

What could this spell for VM's fate? Reality shows rarely run for more than half of a scripted series' season, so it's unlikely that VM will simply be replaced wholesale by (shudder) a 22-episode Pussycat Dolls series. However, the fact that the CW has now tasted such success in Tuesdays at 9 means that the ratings standard has suddenly been boosted a lot higher. They have proof that there is programming that can perform better than VM has been doing. In fact, it's even possible, if Pussycat Dolls sustains its degree of success, that the final episodes of Veronica Mars may even be pre-empted in favor of a couple of montage and reunion installments. Remember, compared to any scripted series, reality shows are relatively cheap and easy to produce.
