 Veronica Mars has been dead and buried for years - but Rob Thomas (not the Matchbox 20 guy) and Kristen Bell have re-opened old wounds by making a Veronica Mars film. While the film is great, it brings back all of the hurt of losing one of the best TV shows to ever air (about a snarky teenage southern Califronia P.I., at least). Luckily, here are a couple shows you can marathon to fill the hole in your heart left by Veronica and Co.

 

1. Terriers

  • Southern California-based show, focusing on a disgraced cop who becomes a private investigator

  • Heavily focuses on the rich and powerful screwing over the poor and helpless

  • Tragically cancelled too soon
