The Vast Wasteland

Sheila's rantings, most likely of no interest, on TV, movies, books, music, etc.

I live in Seattle, am married, have two cats (one is a genius, the other insane), and am a mild-mannered copy editor by day. I love horseback riding, coffee, reading, TV, movies, music, playing (too much) World of Warcraft, and lying on the couch. This isn't a personal blog, but rather a place for me to vent about movies, TV shows, books, music, etc. Thanks for checking in!

The Veronica Mars Opening Credits

You know how wonderful the credits are to Veronica Mars? The perfect song ("We Used to Be Friends" by the Dandy Warhols), the fun clips from previous shows....and the fabulous, simple line drawings? Ever stop to think about those drawings? What do you think they mean?

  • Kristen Bell: Two people in an apartment window, either kissing or fighting.
  • Percy Daggs III: A body chalk outline. (This better not be foreshadowing! Eek!)
  • Teddy Dunn: A surveillance camera.
  • Jason Dohring: Lilly's name and flowers--they look like they were doodled by Lilly. (Awwww! So heartbreaking!)
  • Francis Capra: Hands behind bars holding a cigarette. (Hee. Pretty clear.)
  • Ryan Hansen: A surfboard. (Ah, Dick, are you truly this uncomplicated? Or is it a sham?)
  • Kyle Gallner: A press hat and a camera.
  • Tessa Thompson: An RX bottle and lipstick. (Hee! This is so funny! Oh, yeah, I remember once it was implied that Jackie was a druggie...)
  • Enrico Colantoni: Handcuffs. (Because Papa Mars is the Once and Future Sheriff, the true figure of justice in this show.)

What are your thoughts?

The Wallace/Duncan/Beaver icons always baffled me. I can hope that wallace won't end up dead, and it's a shout-out to his detective skills, especially when he and VM wonder-twin.

Duncan and the video camera...I think that's a sick joke at Lilly's expense.

Beaver. I have no idea. I think it doesn't mean anything. Or, it's the red herring.

The Logan/Weevil/Jackie/Big Poppa Mars are all spot on, though.

I think the drawings simply refer to the "noir" theme of the show. You know, private dicks, spy gear, crime scenes and california beach life. I wouldn't really read too much into it.

Aww, but it's fun to read things into it! :-)
