VM Season III - going downhill?
18 October 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have followed VM for two seasons and very much enjoyed it, but I'm not enjoying season III so much - first, what is with the lamo new credit sequence? Talk about butchering a great dandies song. Second,not so sure about the farrach fawcett hair. I thought veronica looked heaps better with short hair, it kinda annoyed me when it got longer during the last season as it was like she was returning to her pre-lily-death self. Third, I always liked weevil but he's not looking so good these days. And finally, why did vm have to get back with logan in the final ep of season II? hopefully she'll show logan the door soon, i just don't find it believable that she's staying with him.
