I still love Veronica Mars because...

The Series
  • Veronica has power--the power to make or break reputations, to uncover secrets, and in general to help others achieve their goals--and her classmates respect it.
  • When her classmates don't respect it, she makes them respect it.
  • Her father and her principal respect it.
  • The show is about rich kids who have power handed to them on a silver plate.
  • It's about the poor kids who steal it.
  • Two words: Cindy Mackenzie.
  • Because the recurring cast (which makes Buffy's look small) keeps coming back and being important. Everybody has their story, and they interrelate in amazingly intricate ways. No one is safe to forget; the show has memory.


The Finale
  • Veronica dreams about Lilly Kane having sex with girls. For real. In canon.
  • That moment between Veronica and Van, when he wonders if life will be simpler or more difficult without her. The adults know not to get in her way, yo.
  • Alicia is alive!
  • Cassidy Casablancas is a teenage genius mastermind, even if its not in the way I wanted him to be.
  • Veronica's ex-boyfriend is willing--and able--to order the death of his sister's killer, which makes him a monster.
  • When the episode was over, I could feel the adrenaline flowing through my system.


I'll update this later if I think of more--as I am sure that I will.

Buf a monster who I guess we'll never see again. Maybe I'm wrong and maybe there will be hell to pay on Aaron's murder, but to me it seemed way too convenient to not only have this happen but to make Duncan, rather than Logan (who now we're apparently supposed to love OMG) the bad guy (even though Logan would have been more in character). Did I mention that if I wrote this show Logan would have killed Beaver?

Sigh. Sorry, I don't mean to kill your squee. I completely agree with your pro-comments about the series in general; and I liked the dream in the finale. The rest of it just really fell flat for me (except, well, Weevil's arrest, and Dick talking about how Mac & Beaver were probably having sex and playing D&D at once).

Hmm, yes, but his subsequent comment about how they are both "12th-level dorks" felt off to me because I didn't feel he would have the necessary knowledge in order to make that joke.

Unless, of course, Dick was not always as cool as he would have us believe.

Next season: the Revenge of Dick! *dramatic chord*
