Kevin: Well, you have a lot of great episodes ahead of you then. Flashbacks included. ("Lord of the Bling" is episode 13 and is actually one of the weaker episodes imho. But the flashbacks are interesting and the best part of the episode.) Most people will agree with you that Veronica 1.0 is like a completely different person from Veronica 2.0, but I think, if you pay attention closely, that Veronica 1.0 has the same smarts and mildly sarcastic sense of humor. She's just so damn happy. She has none of the anger and bitterness that drives Veronica 2.0. (I know a person who changed like that after a bitter divorce. Once they were happy and then they were just bitter and hated all men and that nearly took over their personality. Bitterness changes people. But I digress.) Plus, Veronica 1.0 was not the daughter of a private investigator. The most amazing thing to me is that Veronica 2.0 is a genius P.I. herself and is so good with all the gadgets after only 8 months or so. That's a little implausible, but hey, this show isn't about realism. All the "teenage girl is a P.I." stuff kind of has to be taken with a grain of salt. Heck, by the end of the season, she's broken enough laws to land her in jail for years. But I used to love Alias, so realism isn't something I need in a TV show. It's the incredibly deep and layered and consistent characterization that makes this show so special. Plus the complicated plotting and complex narrative structure of the weekly mysteries combined with the season long mystery, with great continuity for the observant viewers. And the ridiculous frenzied pace, particularly in the last few episodes. And the witty dialogue and pop culture references. And Kristen Bell. And Enrico Colantoni. And Jason Dohring. I could go on. To get back on topic of the DVD specifically and not the show in general . . . it sucks that there aren't more extras but I really enjoyed the commentary provided by RT on his website. That was great of him to do that for the hardcore fans who want to know every detail of every scene.
