Veronica Mars SoundtrackThe first two shows in the Prime Picks are two shows that you should check out if you haven’t got a chance yet. Friday Night Lights is a very good family drama and captures small town life in Texas quite well. Even if the idea of a whole town living and dying with every win and loss sounds bizarre to many, don’t let that keep you away from this wonderful show. Veronica Mars is another great show that not enough people seem to be watching. The stories and mysteries are always very well down. The viewer can jump in at anytime, as each episode is somewhat self-contained with the mystery of the week. After a couple of episodes under your belt you will get enough of the dynamic and be able to really enjoy the show. If you aren’t watching either of these shows then why not? What is keeping you from tuning in? Let us know by leaving a comment.
