In the blink of an eye, we've reached the end of (the TV version of) Veronica Mars. We're back season one-fighting form this week, with a vengeful and in over her head Veronica, a wrathful Logan, a morally dubious Keith and assorted Neptune regulars joining the fray and helping out. It's a bittersweet ending that sets up for a season four that never was, but you have to ask--if it had been like most of season three would it even be worth it?
We learn yet another valuable lesson in episode one, which oddly combines CW Relationship Drama (TM) and a mystery about child soldiers. Sooo, there's that. However, episode two snaps us right back into place with a Weevil-centric mystery that helps set up for the next season that never was. Join us to start enjoying Veronica Mars again right before it's snatched away. Cheers!
This week on Must Be Tuesday, we discuss the serious, interminable downturn in the episode quality post-Dean murder mystery. Guys, Paul Rudd shows up and these episodes STILL blow. All of our beloved characters are replaced by their pod-CW counterparts, full of angst, teen drama and handholding. It's a calmer, tamer, sweeter Veronica Mars. Bleh.
A couple of real season highlights in this week's episodes! We find Veronica finally behind bars, a payoff that was worth 2.5 seasons of wait. Logan also suddenly develops a likable personality? Then in episode two, it's all dean mystery all the time! Finally we get some solid (ish) detective work from Sheriff Mars and even a bit from V herself. A brief glimpse into the Veronica Mars of yore!
