What do you do when you don't feel so great? Me, I curl up on the sofa or in bed with the laptop and watch Film Noir movies on Netflix. There's something about this film genre that A) puts me to sleep like a baby when I'm overtired and B) makes me feel not quite so bad. I dunno if it's the black and white (because film noir can NOT be in color. It is an abomination!) or if it's the acting style (somewhat Shatner-esque) or if it's the [insert evil thing like POOL] will send children to jail as juvenile delinquents hyperbole or what. But there's something about it that I like.
I'll say this... The problem with Veronica Mars was that it was sometimes Noir and sometimes Buffy. You can't do both.
