News & Interviews for Veronica Mars: Season 1
The pilot, immediately diving us into a show rich with scandal and secrets, one with its own voice.
If you miss new adventures from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, UPN has come up with a riveting alternative.
Superb, creatively snarky characters make Veronica Mars more than a teenage drama, and a few breadcrumbs thrown in at the end of the pilot entice you to come back for more
Have-not Veronica's ability to analyze the motivation of the haves and her creative ways of making them pay for their deeds are a satisfying source of mordant wit.
The show starts out by taking itself too seriously and working too hard to establish an atmosphere of teen angst mixed with noir mystery.
It was a show that excelled thanks to writing and performance; the direction and style was fine in the first season, often more elegant and poignant in the flashbacks.
The slow-burn, tense, and yet somehow perfectly sensible development of [Logan and Veronica] romantic relationship is truly magical, and I'm always impressed by it when I remember just how far apart they started off.
Veronica Mars has one of the few pilots that hooks you from the jump with charm, melancholy, and a hell of a mystery.
Veronica Mars is emotionally rich and complex; it's not a kiddie show, and that makes it a tough sell. But, hey, cultdom is good too.
Audience Reviews for Veronica Mars: Season 1
Feb 01, 2021It was an amazing show! Smart writing, amazing performances, and careful smart directing makes Veronica Mars one of the must-watch shows of the past century. Kristen Bell's amazing performance, as the titular title character, it is absolutely the perfect career starter role.
Jul 14, 2020A long time ago it used to be my favorite season of any show ever, with season 4 now out everything else is unwatchable.
Jan 30, 2020Veronica Mars has such a great story line and the mystery of who killed Lilly Kane is one that will make you want to binge watch the whole season. Veronica Mars is such a strong, kick ass girl who doesn't take shit from anyone!
Jan 06, 2020BEST SERIES EVER.Months later I'm still gutted about the ending of season 4. BRING HIM BACK!!! the creator says that we would stop watching if the show was based on romance and wants to focus on the crime solving. DONT THEY KNOW THE MAIN ATTRACTION TO THE SHOW IS VERONICAS ANS LOGANS LOVE STORY?? PLEASE UNDO THIS. we won't even be mad if he just magically walks back into the house. Just please bring him back or a lot of fans aren't going to watch anymore.
Jul 20, 2018ABSOLUTELY brilliant. 10/10 best tv show i've ever watched.
Aug 08, 2017The best female led show ever made. The writing is so fresh and the twists genuinely surprising. Nothing about this feels formulaic. The acting should have won them all emmys, particularly Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni and Jason Dohring. For a show about rape, murder, incest and pedophilia, it's scripts are laugh out loud funny, and line readings delivered to perfection by the leads. The list of guest stars is perhaps the best part though. Harry Hamlin, Paul Rudd, Jessica Chastain, Adam Scott, Ed Begley Jr., Steve Gutenberg, Krysten Ritter, Tessa Thompson, Melissa Leo...and that's just a handful of them. It's like finding an Easter egg in each episode. The cancellation of this show was a crime against tv. It should've ended up on HBO. Don't let the teen setting fool you, because this is dark (yet witty) stuff. And Veronica Mars is what every little girl should want to be when they grow up. She's truly a hero for women, somebody who uses her substantial brains the way action heroes use their fists. As she got the crooked sheriff to announce in one episode "Veronica Mars is smarter than you".
Jan 11, 2017simply amazing, some of the best TV I have been fortunate enough to watch and the twist at the end got me good! Highly recommend this show to anyone and everyone.
Sep 27, 2015Incredibly witty, sharp, cool and steeped in pure film noir stylishness, Veronica Mars, the story of a teenage detective (and dont think that means it's daft and for kids, it's dark and violent and filled with taboo stuff) in a callifornia town filled with secrets is the ultimate case of a "gone before it's time" tv show, a character driven, multiple mystery masterpiece, headed by the insanely talented, lovely and all round fantastic Kristen Bell as the title character, she is outstanding, her line delivery razor sharp, her comic timing precision perfect, just massively charming and a huge and baffling mystery as to why she was never gifted anything as good as this show again, either on tv or especially in her hit and miss movie career, she feels like a ridiculously wasted talent. Surrounding her is an amazing supporting cast of constantly evolving characters whom you pretty much fall in love with, Jason Dohring is fascinating and really incredible as rich kid Logan, a character who you initially despise on a molecular level and somehow evolves into a very broken, tragic person you truly care about and one of the most important people in the show, enemy, the main "on again, off again, on again, off again, on again off again" love interest and usually center of much chaos in the central plots. The lovable Percy Dagg's as Veronica's ever dependable best bud Wallace, Galaxy Quests Enrico Colantoni as Veronica dad, the shamed ex-cheif of police turned private dick, whose every line delivery and off kilter quirk is a warm and delightful center of the show. Francis Capra as motorcycle gang leader "Weevil", who goes from being intense and threatening to someone you want to hug, and the list goes ever on. Each series has one big central mystery (two in the third) that gets set up in the first episode and gradually unraveled in gripping, addictively watchable style, the first concerns Veronica reason for becoming an under age sleuth in the fist place, the murder of her bets friend Lilly (played by Amanda Seyfried in ghostly flashbacks and the second series revolves around a schoolbus crash that may have been a coordinated mass murder. And the show keeps getting more strong and confident as it goes, the third series is the darkest and moodiest (even the Dandy Warhol's catchy theme "We Used To Be Friends" is moodier) with the most sinister hook, Veronica trying to uncover a series of rapes in her new college, and thats another thing you wouldnt expect, the issues this show depicts and tackles head on, things like incest, pedophilia, abuse, racism, murder, it puts all these subjects into a "supposedly" day time time show and within these parameters somehow doesn't compromise anything, and it's this along with it's effortlessly incisive wit and sarcastic humor that makes it stand out among every other show about teens. It pains me that it didnt get to carry on another four seasons, so much potential and so many introduced story threads, lost! but at least we got three fantastically entertaining seasons of funny, thrilling, edgy and emotional tv at it's best. And then of course theres the movie, which wraps up things years later and quite nicely. Quality on every level, this is one of the best tv series of all time.
Apr 10, 2015A show with too much charm for it's own good.
Sep 04, 2014Just binge watched the first season.Excellent.
