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

Adam Kaufman plays André in episode 1.7, Veronica Mars: The Girl Next Door (2004). In an attempt to keep the struggling show on the air after its third season, creator Rob Thomas filmed an extended pitch for the fourth season that advances the show's timeline considerably. Instead of being a college undergraduate, as she was at the end of season three, in the spec season four, Veronica (Kristen Bell) has graduated from college and the FBI Academy and is starting her first day as a FBI agent. Although the pitch contained (except for Veronica) a whole new cast of heretofore unseen characters (and therefore actors), one of the new characters was a fellow FBI agent played by Adam Kaufman. This was a completely different character from the one-off appearance he made in the first season. See more »

Goofs

In episode 2.3, Veronica Mars: Cheatty Cheatty Bang Bang, we see in the phone book that Wallace & his family live at 2414 Rialto Way, however in episode 1.16, Veronica Mars: Betty and Veronica, Veronica (Kristen Bell) says Wallace (Percy Daggs III) lives on the corner of Pleasant Valley and Marigold.

Quotes

Keith: [seeing the game hens Veronica has cooked] You know, elf, we might not be the richest family in town, but we can afford normal-sized birds once a year or so.
Veronica: Game hens. They were just so cute. Plus, this way, we won't have to eat left-overs on New Year's.
Keith: That's smart thinking. Come on, what do they taste like?
Veronica: [laughing] I don't know. Dense little turkeys?

User Reviews

Excellent - Not your average UPN show
21 February 2005 | by BagelcatSee all my reviews

The story of Veronica and her search for the truth in the spoiled and famous Nepture is far more compelling that your average UPN teen drama.

Real characters, complex situations and issues and topics beyond who is hooking up with whom. The detailed story arc might make it a bit challenging for new viewers to pick up the threads, but each episode stands alone.

Like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars mixes, humour and pathos, into both complicated life and death issues and high school life. Just as Buffy was about more than surviving high school with a social life, Veronica Mars looks at real things with a sceptical eye and an ironic twist.
