Believe it or not — despite our mission statement — PR folks still have a tendency to send unsolicited emails asking us to plug some godawful film (Hey Bryan — we’re not interested in clips from D-War, capisci?) or feature a video clip from some terrible television show that I know, the PR firm knows, and the general public knows will eventually get canceled within a week. More often than not, these emails find a home in my junk folder next to the “kinky lady in stockings sucking and jerking thru gloryhole” or the many electronic solutions for “ShortDick.” We’re not for sale, folks.

However, given the rabid “Veronica Mars” fan base on this site, it would be damn near criminal of us to turn away the opportunity to give a reader Season Three of “VM” on DVD. And, this particular PR company actually encourages transparency, so I’m all the more willing to participate; we have no intention of hoodwinking any of you into believing this is a “Pajiba Exclusive Giveaway,” (nor would we have you believe that some 5 minute conference call with a minor celebrity that 20 other people are in on counts as an interview). So, for transparency’s sake, in exchange for the free giveaway, I need to include this synopsis:

The DVD is Veronica, Logan and more of your VM favorites join cool new characters for a Season 3 of seething mystery and sardonic wit. College is indeed a learning experience as Veronica aces a crime class led by a hunky prof, solves the case of on-campus rapes that began in Season Two, and gives a grad seminar in sleuthing when two faculty members take sudden, eternal early retirements. Frosh year is gonna be freaky!

“Hunky prof”? “Frosh year is gonna be freaky”? Clearly, Rob Thomas isn’t writing the press releases, but don’t let that dissuade you from buying the “VM” collection. This is not the series’ best season, but it’s pretty swell (and check out Dan’s obituary for the show, if you haven’t already).

At any rate, with Warner Home Video getting what they want, I now need to figure out how to give the DVD away. A “caption this …” contest comes to mind, but the good folks over at Your Blog Blows think that’s tantamount to “Highlights for Adults,” and I tend to agree. Besides, we pander for cheap page views with our comment diversions, so how about it? In the spirit of the heartbreaking early cancellation of “Veronica Mars,” share with us your most painful or heartbreaking non-sports related television memory. The person who extracts the most pity wins the DVD.
