Veronica Mars rocks!

October 5, 2005

My fellow Veronica Mars fans, this year’s season opener rocked, did it not?

Just when you thought nothing could top the Lily Kane murder mystery of last season, a new whodunit emerged.

I can’t wait for Veronica to start investigating who rigged that school bus to plunge over the cliff. Not only did the premiere set the stage for a new mystery, it also explored the Logan/Duncan/Veronica triangle.

For those of you who haven’t found this modern-day Nancy Drew, I implore you, please, please tape Lost and watch Veronica live. She could use your help in the ratings. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

This show boasts some of the best-written dialogue on the tube. Here’s an example of what you’re missing. Last week, Veronica was trying to solve the case of who sabotaged the school athletes’ drug test results. “Do you have any enemies,” Veronica asked her African-American friend Wallace. “Well, there’s the Klan,” he replied, sarcastically.

It’s early in the season and a good time to jump in. The show does a decent job of recapping past episodes, prior to the start of each show.

Catch Veronica Mars at 9 p.m. on Wednesdays on UPN.
