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

Goofs

Veronica's (Kristen Bell) dog, Backup, changes after the pilot episode, Veronica Mars: Pilot (2004). The dog in the pilot is a brown American Pit Bull Terrier but was recast for the rest of the series. This was done to avoid dealing with Backup One's dog trainer, as their lack of preparation for the pilot shoots delayed production a lot. See more »

UPN has potential with this show
20 March 2005 | by SonicStuartSee all my reviews

I have never watched any of the prime-time shows on UPN after Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended until I watched this show and I think that UPN has themselves a hit show here and the show is Veronica Mars. The show is about a smart, fearless 17-year-old girl named Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) who is an apprentice to her father, Keith Mars (Enrico Colantoni from "Just Shoot Me") who is a former sheriff and has Veronica help him with his struggling new private investigator business. By sneaking through back alleys and scoping out no-tell motels with a telescopic-lens camera and her math book, Veronica attempts to uncover the California beach town's darkest secrets, including who killed her best friend and Duncan's sister, Lilly, and created a scandal that cost her father his job, his home and wife. Pushed to the edge of this multicultural, venomous little Peyton Place, Veronica Mars relentlessly continues to search for evidence that will clear her father's name and get her back into the "in-crowd," but what she finds may tear the town of Neptune apart at the seams. The show I think is like those detective book novels almost. I like this show! I think Kristen Bell is going to be the next Sarah Michelle Gellar! This show premiered on UPN September 2004. I hope this show lasts more than one season!

User Rating: 9/10

BOTTOM LINE: THIS SHOW IS SO COOL!
