Watch Veronica Mars Take On the FBI

Earlier this week, I told you the Veronica Mars third-season DVD set included a feature with Rob Thomas talking about making Veronica an FBI agent for the show's proposed fourth season, back when he was trying to save the show from cancellation.

Well, it's even better than I thought: The set includes the whole 20-minute Veronica-in-the-FBI pilot pitch Thomas made to the CW — and some intrepid fan has put a big chunk of it on YouTube. The unaired pilot shows Veronica entering the FBI academy and executing her first sting with all her trademark sass and spirit.

I'd be surprised if this stays on YouTube very long, so hurry up and watch — and then let me know if you would have watched this version of Veronica Mars. And if any of you already have the DVD set, tell me: Is there more to the pilot feature than this, or does it end on that wild cliffhanger? To see what I'm talking about, just

:( That was so good. I miss VM so much. I don't get how Gossip girl can get a full season pick up with lower ratings than VM had. Stupid CW.

OMG, that would have been awesome. And it still had all the trademark humor too! But honestly, i don't know why we all so surprised. This is the same idiot network that cancelled Everwood and they have a crappy new reality show coming up called (and i'm so not making this up…)Farmer Wants a Wife! Idiots, complete idiots!!

"You couldn't figure me out with a For Dummies book and a rosetta stone." Hee. Anyway, the FBI version was way cool! What possessed them to cancel this? It always makes me wonder if the networks know that they'll only get ridiculed for cancelling smart, good shows. I wonder if their new shows are getting the same ratings as VM? That was the major reason, right?

Omg, seriously, WHY did the CW have to cancel Veronica Mars?! The FBI version seems really interesting too. I really wish they would bring this show back.

I love Veronica Mars, it is absolutely necessary to bring her back. What can we do?! I too, am distraught...I just don't know what to do with myself. Women's Murder Club is the worst, this would have been waaaay better.

You're welcome, Buzz! What would have happened? Hm. Veronica would have continued to kick booty - Sassy girl style - and we would have had another "Buffy/female empowerment without kowtowing to society's expectations of how women should behave" type show. Since Buffy is now in Season 8 via comic book, the lastest rumblings I have heard about VMars is a fan cryout for Rob Thomas to continue the series via comic....although he and all the writers have moved on to different projects and that is not going to happen anytime soon, if at all of course. R.I.P., Veronica Mars. =(

Thanks Daisie! I wonder why the description said 20 minutes. So crazy it ended like that — I really want to know what happens now.

Yes, this is the entire upfront and this is how it ends. (It's a 10 minute upfront, btw.) I got Season 3 in the mail the other day. The only thing I have watched so far is the entire 6th DVD, which starts with both the upfront followed by the upfront interlaced with commentary from series creator Rob Thomas and of one of the producers. I cried. I cried because there is nothing as great as this on TV. As much as I wanted Veronica to stay in college; I would have accepted the fast forward FBI track for her to stay on the air. Boo to the CW. Boo to Dawn Ostroff. And finally, boo to the dumbed down American public.
