Veronica Mars

So my good friend Cédric keeps recommending “Veronica Mars” (UPN) to me. “The show is so cool”, he says, meaning Kristen Bell is hot, no doubt!

Veronica Mars

Yesterday I finally gave in and watched the pilot. Am I hooked now? “Veronika, der Lenz ist da?” Nevermind, I am indeed contemplating watching a few more episodes. It does have its charm and light humor but it also has its yawners and especially Veronica’s monologue at the end of the pilot almost made me trash the DVD. Valiant Veronica vs. the rest of the world. She will stop at nothing until her family is reunited. How quaint.

Give me a break. She’s tough, she’s self-confident and then she’s self-indulgent. Oh my, too bad! Virginity, bye-bye. That smells like teen spirit and I do agree and insist that life should be fragrant, rooftop to the basement. Is Veronica the kite blowing out of control? Either way, Bono has it right and before I drown this article in song quotes, naming a seaside community “Neptune” is really incredibly creative. Welcome to Neptune-High. It could be worse, they could have called Mars’s dog Pluto, taking him for a run along Neptune’s beaches and calling for backup in case the P.C.H. Bike Club comes to hassle you. Lost you there, did I? Good.

In conclusion, “Veronica Mars” has its appeals but needs to work on the details. I am not sure yet where or when the Mystery part will come in but I shall check out more episodes and find out “how the cookie crumbles” over at Neptune. We shall get to the bottom of this. Stay tuned!

  1. As a VM addict I must implore you to watch many more episodes, as it really does get better! I’ve just completed my run of the 1st Series and I gotta say, this is one of the freshest “teen” TV shows in a long time. Why fresh? Because it takes such a blatant stab at all those other angsty teen shows like The OC and such. Veronica is feisty, smart and funny. Her father is just a gem, and the supporting cast are brilliant. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

  3. 48 hours later we are deep into Season 1 (episode 12) and we shall finish this Season by tomorrow. However, we shall need more coffee in the process! Until then I refrain from commenting any further! The final verdict shall be made tomorrow 12 o’clock. High noon.
