The WB is Back?!?

Months ago I found this article on and I got quite excited for a number of reasons. First and foremost: finally I could watch Everwood again. I really loved that show and I’ve been so disappointed that only the 1st season is available on DVD. Especially because it was the 2nd season that really made me love the show. Next: I’d be able to catch up on some old favorites including Gilmore Girls and Dawson’s Creek (I know but its true, I loved that show!). And its just not the same watching those on ABC Family or TBS. And let’s me honest, Netflix is great but sometimes it takes too long.

Last week, on a lark I checked out the beta version of the website. I logged in, gave them my email and yesterday I got an email back saying I had been approved to check it out. Now, I knew not to expect much – after all it was just a beta version of the website. There were limited shows available and even more limited episodes but it got me excited. I as able to catch up on an ep of The OC! I just wish there was more to see now. There are some fun, albeit simple games to play, mostly trivia based. The most exciting part though was an “under construction” tab with several “Originals.” I don’t claim to know what that exactly means, but it seems webisodes are here and are making a huge comeback.

All I can saw is, I’m logging forward to seeing The Frog this Fall!

I'm intrigued by one of the comments from the article you posted - might we get Veronica Mars back? Maybe the episodes on the web will be soooo popular that they'll start making originals again, or maybe that "Veronica in the FBI" motion picture will finally materialize! Kristen Bell would have to quit Heroes and Jason Dohring would have to quit Twilight... I mean, Moonlight, but those are sacrifices I'm willing to make!

Well, Jason Dohring will be free because Moonlight got cancelled.

Who knows what Rob Thomas is up to, since he had about 4 shows on deck for the fall. All I can say is, thank god he took my advice and ran away from the 90210 POS. Yay, Rob!
