Storyline

The murder of high-school student Lilly Kane shook the seaside town of Neptune, California to the core. For once popular girl Veronica Mars, it meant the loss of her best friend and being ousted from the affluent crowd that she once thought were her friends. Her father, Sheriff Keith Mars, found himself voted out of his job after making some unpopular accusations about the murdered girl's family. In response, Keith opened his own private detective agency. Now, Veronica, with her sardonic wit and a few new friends, works as his assistant while also navigating life as a high school (and later college) student. Written by L. Hamre

Trivia

Both actresses Alyson Hannigan and Charisma Carpenter were stars on the also iconic TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). "Buffy" creator Joss Whedon, a declared fan of "Veronica Mars," also had a cameo in an episode. See more »

Goofs

While Logan is editing the tribute video to Lilly, among the video clips is one that shows her as a little girl between the age of 5 and 7 at Legoland California. Legoland California wasn't in operation until 1999, which means that Lilly would had to have at been least 10 or 11 during the visit, making her too old to have appeared in the aforementioned clip.

Quotes

Veronica: That's going to be a very busy little pen.

Are you kidding me?
27 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After reading quite a few comments from people who thought this show is "horrible," I was really surprised with their reasons. First of all, there are very few TV shows out there that are in every way true to life. Of course the situations aren't completely plausible! That's why we watch TV shows in the first place - we're entertained by things that we would not normally do or see. If I wanted to watch something "realistic" I'd just tape myself and watch it at the end of the day.

What's real in this show is that every character is complicated and has layers in their personality. The bad guy isn't all bad, and the good guy isn't so great either. There's just this gray area - just the way people are.

Then there's the complaint that Veronica Mars is "too smart." And that's a bad thing because...? I'm sick of mindless shows that give away the ending in the first minute and/or have the same tired plots. If witty is not your thing, that is sad and someone needs a good dose of "sense of humor." Maybe everything we watch on TV should be bland and predictable from now on? By the way, detective work is supposed to be logical - not flashy. When you want to look for someone, you'd automatically put a trace on things they own. What did you expect would happen? Some kind of laser tracking thingy?

The writing on this show is amazing, as are the actors and everything else. The artistic value is also incredible. If TV watchers can't appreciate that, then I really am worried about the population.
