    If you just finished Season 3, it's worth seeking out the Season 4 "preview" that they created, but ultimately never got to make. If you want to watch it in shitty quality, here you go, otherwise there are places to find it

    Yeah I just had to blow through so I can watch the movie while it’s still available. I will definitely watch that later though. I really thought for some reason that they knew it was over so the ending would be more final.

    Yikes! I guess that explains all the awkward references to it in S3.

    The movie is infinitely better so far. Jamie Lee and Gaby cover a multitude of sins.

    On the DVD they had ads and such for it and we're pretty big advocates for Invisible Children.

    Is it a terrible organization or something?

    Ooooh boy, yeah. The controversies and issues surrounding it were almost as big as their viral campaign in the first place. It became a pretty big embarrassment for a TON of celebrities who had been vocal supporters.

    Also James Franco’s cameo is a big bummer.

    Holy crap that was dark! Were they trying to shop it to more adult networks?

    Decided to just jump into the new season. Keith and Veronica still have the best chemistry and I love them together.

    However, this cuss thing is atrocious and will absolutely make me tear my hair out. Like it’s bad enough to have such an arbitrary rule in place on a streaming network, but they upped the language, nudity, and sexual content tremendously anyway, so the excuse of wanting to keep it friendly for teens doesn’t even make sense.

    How many episodes did you skip?

    None? I finished the show and the movie, but I didn’t give any space between waiting to start the new one. I know the books are canon or close to it, but I’m not invested enough to seek those out.

    I recommend this show to a friend and she watched it all in two weeks but got mad at me because I didn’t warn her about the ending

    I really hope Wallace’s wife is meant to be a court reporter or something, because otherwise, “I was writing a deposition,” is one of the most unintentionally hilarious things they’ve ever said on the show.

    Just finished and immediately went back to read all the posts I had to avoid. From a story standpoint it’s super frustrating and changes everything waaaaay too much, and the fact that it did so while using some of the same toxic tropes the original series fell into way too often doesn’t make it any better.

    Coming here and seeing the awful justifications given for the decision made it even worse. Like if you really want to say goodbye to the past and make a new show, why even bring Logan back with such character development and focus?! It’s almost like HIMYM level of disdain for the fans and characters. I’ve been pretty loudly anti-Logan throughout my entire watch, and this was the first time that he seemed like someone to truly root for while Veronica was stuck in her same toxic ways. It would have been SO easy to just break them up or have him be away on a more extended leave, but to have him fleshed out just to get fridged because you “can’t have a noir show where someone is in a healthy relationship” sucks.

    If this had been a different show I probably would have liked that twist. The way they set it up was believable enough and I got HUGE Dexter season four vibes while he was getting in the car and gloating, so in a vacuum it’s not totally terrible. But in context, yikes.

    Until that I would have pretty easily ranked this with season one as my favorite. The Keith and Veronica interactions were perfect and I loved how the fat was trimmed from the story. It wasn’t flawless by any means, but neither was the original run to me as a new fan.

    The cuss stuff was as awful as I expected throughout and really blew the tension in some of the later scenes it was in. I have no idea what the future of the show is, but if it comes back they better drop that nonsense no matter what else happens.

    Also if the plan really is to have her go out on the road solving cases, I’m out anyway. Her relationships and how they play into each case and the backdrop of this corrupt (but sadly realistic) town are basically the entire draw of the show to me. Combining classic noir with ridiculous comedy and a surprisingly wholesome core family dynamic makes it stand out from every other show in a good way, and they could continue to do so much interesting stuff with these same ideas in an adult setting.

    I would honestly give them a pass to go full Dallas or Roseanne on it, although I would be shocked if that happened.

    Didn’t Fall Out Boy devote an entire music video to Invisible Children’s cause? II’m pretty sure it was for my favorite songs of their’s too.

    Yep, they were hugely involved too. I’m pretty sure they were how I first heard about it.


    On another meta note, finding out a few days ago that Jason Dohring is a Scientologist who’s hugely involved in recruiting was massively disappointing.

    holy shit, I had no idea. I just did some googling. This post has a good recap of everything, jesus... Fuck him, glad they blew him up.

    That quote just reiterates how much he clearly wants to be making a brand new show while still piggybacking off of the established fanbase.

    I'm very intrigued by the idea he has for S5 but my enthusiasm for this waned after S4's ending

    Season 5 should be 15 seconds long and it’s just Veronica waking up and realizing Logan dying was a nightmare and he should leave it alone after that for ever
