I’m completely beat for time this week, so my review will be brief. This weeks episode was written by John Winer and directed by John Enbom and Phil Klemmer.
A-Storyline – Veronica is hired by a star football player to find his missing playbook.
B-Storyline – The Dean threatens to expel Veronica if she doesn’t reveal the source in her newspaper article.
C-Storyline – Weevil gets a job working for Keith Mars.
What I liked: Seeing Weevil back, Logan up to his old tricks, the writer’s choosing a strong, sexy name like Kurt, Dean O’Dell, next weeks preview – Keith-Logan interaction… should be good.
My favorite line of the night:
Radio Guy: Where would militant feminists get a hold of a softball bat?
What I didn’t like: Logan slacking on Veronica, I feel like the writers are just itching for a conflict. Yes, happy characters are less interesting, the more miserable people are the more interesting they become, but make the juice worth the squeeze or whatever. Dont’ make things fall apart for the sake of falling apart. No school has a radio station that looks like that. Seriously. And I found the episode slightly predictable. But then again, you can’t bat a thousand every time. Only Joss Whedon can do that.
Overall: A good episode, but not great. Nice ending.
Runaway has been canned by the CW, so Veronica’s chance of a full season just increased by 15%. Also, check the CW website for exclusive Director’s Cut footage from upcoming Veronica Mars episodes.
This weeks episode gets a
