    Giveaway: Veronica Mars DVD

    I never watched Veronica Mars when it was on TV, but it must have been quite the show to inspire such a devoted following that years after its TV run ended, fans donated over $5 million through Kickstarter to fund a new Veronica Mars movie. The movie comes out in select theaters on March 14:

    On the eve of graduating law school, Veronica Mars has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her. While interviewing at high-end New York law firms, Veronica Mars gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.

    Get ready for the movie with this fun interactive widget:
