Veronica Mars: My Big Fat Greek Rush WeekOctober 11, 2006 at 5:48 pm | Posted in TV News, Veronica Mars | Leave a comment
Thoughts on the episode after the jump.
I guess Veronica won’t be working for the newspaper anymore. That’s probably a good thing — while it was a good excuse to have her running around, sticking her nose in where it doesn’t belong, it was a little too Chloe on Smallville. Besides, journalists are supposed to have ethics. Veronica, like all good private eyes, needs to have a way more flexible moral compass.
More great guest stars! Homer Simpson teaching class! Rider Strong as a student with serious anger issues! I had such a crush on him when he was on Boy Meets World. I no longer do, probably because I’ve seen Cabin Fever. (Do not go see Cabin Fever.) But that’s not all: Keri Lynn Pratt from Drive Me Crazy! Samm Levine from Freaks and Geeks! He was also on Entourage this season, if I recall.
So, the sorority stuff was pretty fun. I did feel genuinely bad for the sorority girls, though — besides the drinking and the boys, they pretty much weren’t doing anything wrong. Sure, they had weed in the house, but it wasn’t even their weed. Veronica should have been able to pull that story before it ran. It’s her piece, and she has a right to retract it. Anyway, Veronica’s an outsider again; an important element of the show, but sad nonetheless.
Speaking of sad, how screwy was that prison experiment thing? Apparently it was really conducted, with results even more disturbing than what we saw in the episode. I liked how Wallace got to outsmart Logan, although Logan caught on anyway — and I loved that the two bet on the outcome. Those two are freaking adorable.
As for poor Parker, it was irritating to see her pin the blame on Veronica, but somewhat understandable. Less understandable was Sheriff Lamb’s reaction: what an ass.
Mystery time: what do we know? Parker was at a sorority party, the sorority girls had her dorm key, she got a “safe ride home” from her RA, and some other girl was with her at the time. I think it’s a little early to point any fingers, especially with a college campus full of suspects. Maybe someone in the “brother” fraternity? I’m thinking there’s no way Mr. Battlestar Galactica did it. Hmm …
