THE PLOT: Veronica Mars is an intelligent young girl (Junior in High School when the series beings, Freshman in college when it ends) with a Private Detective father, a bad reputation, and a whole mess of ambition. She often takes on her own PI duties, sometimes looking into small things like petty theft for classmates, but she also gets serious when a bigger case hits close to home. The majority of VM episodes are standalone, but both of the first two seasons also form bigger stories, in that you can watch an episode by itself, but watching a whole season forms a bigger, coherent story line. The third season, instead, is divided into three sections, the first two being shorter mystery arcs, and the final five episodes being completely standalone. The plotting of "Veronica Mars," especially in the first two seasons, is ideal for television because the story is kept fresh with each episode offering side mysteries, but the pay-off of the "big mystery" at the end of a season is heart attack inducingly climatic.
THE WRITING: Here is where I start gushing. The writing simply couldn't be better. Much like Joss Whedon of Buffy fame, the writers of this show--headed by creator Rob Thomas--find a perfect balance between drama and comedy, driving it all forward by snappy dialogue and some of the best characters you'll see on television. Also, the consistency of this show's writing is literally unrivaled.Read more ›
I hate to compare this show to Buffy, but it does merit comparisons in several ways - the snappy dialogue, a teenage girl as resourceful heroine, an overall season-long story arc, plus each individual episode has a mystery to be solved that is pretty much stand-alone. The final comparison is that Veronica Mars, like Buffy, seemed to lose something once Veronica went to college. Buffy had three great seasons before this happened, Veronica Mars only two. Since Veronica Mars didn't have the sizeable ardent core fan base and surrounding mythology that Buffy had when it went through its troubled college transitional season, and ratings were quite bad during its third season, the show was cancelled. However, if you liked the first two seasons of Veronica Mars you should enjoy the third, and it is worth owning. Just buy the seasons separately, not like this.
The list price and amazon price is about $75 too much! Seeing how you can buy it at target once and a while for $19 a season. $160 is WAY too much. Who ever picked it at that list price should be fired. $89-99 is more reasonable.
Show Description: Cute teenage girl is ripped from her popularity and normal life when her best friend is brutally murdered, and her father, the sherif, accuses a very powerful man in there rich community. Leaving them unwanted in the town of Neptune CA. She then becomes the towns "private eye". Despite the shows dark roots, it's highly funny, sexy, and entertaining.
Price: Best for it's price, 40 bucks for 3 seasons.
Delivery: Came in exactly when expected.
Packaging: This is why I put 4 stars, not 5. The DVD case is very nice and the DVD's came in perfectly. But, and it's a very big but (lol), the DVD's come in stacked, you might worry about them getting scratched, but if you're careful, there gonna be fine.
Over all: Great Show, Great Price, Great Delivery, Ok Packaging. I'm happy with it.
Have only just finished viewing the last disc and watched the bonus disc. Great series but I am very disappointed that it was ended were it was. Leaving things up in the air, in particular the fate of her father.
Who ever actually owned this series did a great dis-service to the viewing public, the fans of Veronica Mars.
