Veronica Mars DVD fan feature on hold

A few weeks ago I reported that the Veronica Mars creators wanted your fan videos for a special feature on the Season 3 DVD. I just received a note from the Veronica Mars folks that the feature is being pulled from the DVD.

The fan-feature idea was scrapped due to some legal mumbo jumbo that the fan-video request must be classified as a “contest” and apparently it takes four months for the network to organize a contest, legally.

Here is the official statement from Warner Brothers:

"Recently, there were reports on websites regarding an opportunity for Veronica Mars fans to submit videotaped testimonials to be included in a special feature on the upcoming Veronica Mars: The Complete Third Season DVD release. Due to time constraints, this feature will not be included on the Season 3 DVD, and we are not accepting any submissions at this time nor do we have plans to use anything that was already submitted. We remain hopeful that in the future we would be able to do something with fans on a future Veronica Mars DVD release. Warner Home Video apologizes for any confusion."

Don’t despair Veronica Mars fans. The good news is that now you have plenty of time to think of something really great to put on your videos for when they open up this contest for season four, which they tell me they will presumably do. Yes, I’m optimistic that there will be a season four.

The other good news is that the Veronica Mars folks are including “something really cool” as a replacement for the fan feature, “something you won't be able to see anywhere else.”

No, sickos, it’s not Logan or Veronica naked.

Frankly, I’d be happy with a funny bloopers reel and some cast commentaries on the episodes. How about you?
