Hello ORG Forumers,

A marketing company working on behalf of Warner Home Video recently contacted me in regards to helping promote the DVD release of Veronica Mars season three.  You're probably thinking something along the lines of ... "Veronica Mars?  This is a Gilmore Girls fan site."  And right you are!  However, both shows are built around strong, intelligent, witty, and independent lead female characters.  As a result, they share a very similar audience, and being a Veronica Mars fan myself I figured it would be fun to participate ... especially because GilmoreGirls.org will be giving away a season three DVD set of Veronica Mars!

To enter, you simply need to reply to this thread and explain why you admire Veronica Mars and/or Lorelai Gilmore.  (For example:  you appreciate Veronica's persistence when it comes to solving a case or delight in Lorelai's vast knowledge of pop-culture.)  Any reasonable reply will be accepted; it just needs to stay on topic.

Contest rules and information:

  •   The contest begins October 16th, 2007 at 12:01 AM Pacific and ends November 16th, 2007 at 11:59 PM Pacific.
  •   Forum members who are under 18 years of age require parent or guardian consent to participate.
  •   The contest is open to residents worldwide, but the prize is available only as a 'region 1' (U.S. and Canada) DVD set.
  •   The winner must be willing to provide GilmoreGirls.org with his or her mailing address (which will not be shared with any third party).
  •   GilmoreGirls.org reserves the right to amend the rules at any time without notice for any reason.

The contest winner will be selected at random on or around November 17th, 2007.  He or she will be notified via ORG Forum PM and e-mail.  The winner has three days to claim his or her prize.  If contact cannot be established with the first selected winner, another contest participant will be selected at random until a winner is reached.  All contest questions or comments can be posted in this thread.

To reiterate:

  •   This is a random drawing contest.  (It is not based on the 'best' entry.)
  •   The prize is one season three Veronica Mars DVD set.
  •   To enter, reply to this thread and explain why you admire Veronica Mars and/or Lorelai Gilmore.

Thank you and good luck to all!  Star

~Heidi


Additional information for Veronica Mars newbies:



Veronica Mars is set in the wealthy seaside community of Neptune, California where the rich and powerful make the rules. Unfortunately for them, there's Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell), a smart, fearless young apprentice private investigator dedicated to solving the town's toughest mysteries. In season three, hoping to leave the ghosts of Neptune High behind her, Veronica is now a freshman at Hearst College, along with her boyfriend, Logan Echolls, and best friends, Wallace Fennel and Cindy "Mac" Mackenzie. But despite the students' efforts to soak up the college experience in their own way, it quickly becomes obvious that some ghosts are here to stay. 

Season three DVD features:

  •   Going Undercover with Rob Thomas: show creator Rob Thomas walks us through some of the most memorable moments from season three.
  •   Pitching Season Four: an in-depth interview with Rob Thomas discussing a new direction for the series that picks up years later, with Veronica as a rookie FBI agent.
  •   Webisode Gallery: cast interviews and various set tours.
  •   Unaired Scenes: introductions by Rob Thomas
  •   Gag Reel

What a great competition.  Thanks again Heidi for bringing the goodies to us folk at GG.org.

I think it's very easy to draw parallels between these two wonderful women (heh! listen to that.  See for me it's like they are real Cheesy), I mean characters.  They both give me that same feeling when I watch their respective shows.  That feeling of satisfaction and happiness and pride and power all rolled into one.  So to admire one is to admire the other.

They are both well rounded characters that kind of have a mix of it all.  Intelligence, wit, personality, beauty, confidence and yet we not only see this side of them but we see the flip side in witnessing their everyday normalcy.  They have their problems just like us.   But it's the way they handle these situations and that they continue to do it with style and conviction that makes me admire them. They both always have a sense of who they are.  Watching them is the perfect balance of escapism and realism for me.  And both provide many of the traits I would hope to possess in my everyday life.

<3 Gilmore Girls.  <3 Veronica Mars.  Let's see -- why I admire Veronica Mars and/or Lorelai Gilmore -- that's pretty simple, for their snarkiness.

And I mean that in a totally positive light.  It takes smarts to be snarky; it also takes character and a little bit of courage.  Lorelai and Veronica were never mean without it being warranted.  They would stand up for themselves or their friends when the time was right [and often do it with biting wit].  That's not always easy.

I admire Veronica Mars because she is so hilarious. Plus, I would never want to get on her bad side because she is very conniving. I admire Lorelai for her wit and ability to deal with any situation!

I admire Lorelai and Veronica for a lot of the same reasons, they are both strong, smart, and independent women. They are both witty and funny and make each of their TV shows way more interesting to watch.

Great contest, Heidi. I love Veronica Mars.

I admire Veronia Mars because of her intelligence.  She has a keen sense of what is going on in a situation.  I wish I was more like her

I admire Lorelai Gilmore and Veronica Mars, because of how they were able to handle the adversity in their lives. Being pregnant at 16 and basically starting your life over for yourself was Lorelai's fate and for Veronica she had to deal with her mother's absence while very young.  Both women have struggled with difficult relationships whether familial  or romantic that haven't always been easy.  Both women have worked hard in their separate professions, when at times what the job required them to do wasn't always easy.    They both have dealt with betrayal, loss, and the cruelties of the world and others.  However, despite all of the struggles they've had, both Lorelai and Veronica have survived. Lorelai and Veronica are survivors! Not only have they survived, but they have excelled and built strong lives for themselves.  And while going through various turmoil in their lives, they were witty, charismatic and lovable to those who were willing to see their true selves.  I only wish that when I am having a hard time I could be as spunky and full of life as they are.

Hi,
Veronica, veronica veronica. What can i say about her. I like her. She is a strong person who stands up for herself in some very awful situations. She is very smart and can notice things that others do not and put together events into a logical conclusion. she is talented, and can do a lot of varied things. Photography/photo manipulation, voice impersonations etc.Most of all she cares for her family and friends and will do anything for them.
I am really sad that the show got canceled. I have turned a few people to show. I hope we see something from the show in the future. I own season 1 and 2 on dvd and would love season 3!!
best,
ali

I admire Veronica Mars and Lorelai Gilmore because they are two independant women that do whats right for them and never look back, and it always seems to be the right thing in the end. I see my self in both these women and that`s why I LOVE Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars:clover: You know the ability to connect and slip away from the daily life and just lean back and relax...Love Cat (Norway).

wow, 2 of my most favorite shows!!

veronica mars is such a strong girl. in the first season when rumors go around the school bout her i wouldnt be able to take it and she does!! i really admire how strong she is inside and out. And Lor well she is also strong in the sense that she got pregnant at 16, had the child, and then proceeded to have her grow up into a beautiful, smart girl. Even when she was on the verge of being broke at times.

Wow. Why do I love Veronica Mars and Lorelai Gilmore?! Well, I so love them both, but I have to say that Veronica is probably one of the coolest characters ever created for the small screen. She is witty.. and sassy.. and intelligent beyond her years. And even though we don't have that whole spy thing in common, I can so relate to her.

As I write this, it seems like I may have a gay crush on Miss Mars.  Undecided

I don't. But I do miss the character and the show more than any of my beloved shows that have left the airwaves. And letmetellya, it was hard to beat out Friends.

Be cool, Soda Pop.

i admire veronica mars because she is a strong individual and is adament on letting people know right from wrong.
she may come across as tough and that she can take anything thrown her way but from watching the show we see that she's just a young girl with feelings and stands up for anyone being bullied or in any trouble!!

I admire Lorelai's ability to consume whatever she wants, whenever she wants, and stay looking as fabulous as she always does.  Tongue
But really, I admire Lorelai for many reasons. One of which is that when she knows she has no true net to fall back on, she makes it through (with her daughter, with the inns, with everything). She always makes it through! and even though she's dedicated to doing everything by herself, she asks for help when she needs it.
