Veronica Mars: Poughkeepsie, Tramps and ThievesFebruary 7, 2007 at 2:41 pm | Posted in TV News, Veronica Mars | Leave a comment
First things first: Veronica Mars Q&A with creator Rob Thomas at TVGuide.com. He answers some great questions, like why Veronica ever bothers talking to Dick Casablancas after the whole rape drama.
Next: thoughts on the episode after the jump.Okay, let’s talk guest stars. Weevil’s back in this episode; he looks like he’s lost weight, and his forehead looks clear. I’m still trying to figure out what his deal is, but hopefully he’ll get back to his menacing gang physique soon. He and Veronica exposit the first intriguing part about the Dean Ed mystery: the Dean’s office was egged, but this wasn’t mentioned in the Hearst Lampoon article on the subject. Why not? What’s the connection? Are the Lampoon guys involved in the death? … on another note, why would a college humor magazine do a news article anyway? Shouldn’t it instead be filled with humorous limericks and poorly-drawn cartoons?
Lamb and Sacks show up next, yay! And are very quickly offscreen again. I wish they had more to do this season. Another guest star that’s back is Mr. Cheaty Test Provider, which I think is a great choice. This actor delivers even the snarkiest of lines convincingly. Plus, he gives Veronica the opportunity to have a super nerdy Battlestar Galactica conversation. It’s cute, but getting over the top. We get it, writers: Battlestar Galactica is an awesome show. I never miss an episode myself. But we’re wasting valuable show time here.
Eventually they get to talking about the actual mystery, which is TWISTY. The hooker has a heart of gold! Or does she? She does! Very suspenseful and well done, show. Kudos.
Oh, except for one thing: Veronica, what are you thinking?! Don’t bribe a judge! The worst part was, she went to the bus station to pick up the money herself. Apparently she’s never been to a movie before. The cops/mob are ALWAYS waiting at the station locker to GET YOU. Sigh.
But whatever, this is all a sideshow to the real drama: Madisongate. Logan didn’t seem too upset when Madison walked in, which makes me think that he didn’t hook up with her. I mean, MADISON?? He’d have to be ridiculously drunk, right? It’s so out of character — slutty hookups on the beach, very Logan. Slutty hookups with Madison, very NOT Logan. But whatever, I guess we’ll find out soon enough. And he did say “I fooled around with this horrible girl that meant less than nothing to me.” That’s an apt Madison description if I ever heard one. Especially if she keeps sporting that heinous wig.
However, I will be PISSED if Veronica dumps Logan over this. When Ross/Rachel did their whole “we were on a break” thing, it was convincing, but I just can’t see it with these two. For one thing, Veronica dated Logan’s best friend, which has got to be pretty difficult for Logan to deal with. For another, Logan saved Veronica’s life at least once, maybe twice if you count at the River Styx. That should transcend any Madison transgressions.
As for the previews: Veronica pregnant? I don’t buy it. You can’t fool me, CW.
