Critic Reviews for Veronica Mars: Season 3

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

The series finale is still an excellent example of everything the show was so good at.

The Battlestar "cross-over" was just one of many highlights from this season's first two episodes

January 23, 2014 | Full Review…

The show's virtues are intact: irony-laced banter, film noir-ish voice-overs with a twist and deliciously tortured triangles.

VM has had a good long run, and it's better to celebrate that we had three (very nearly) full seasons with Veronica rather than throw ourselves on her funeral pyre.

January 23, 2014 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

What Veronica Mars does better than almost any current series is give you a sense that it's building to something big.

January 23, 2014 | Full Review…

Perhaps this is the real mystery of Veronica Mars: The mystery of why a show as well written as this one needs to beg for an audience supposedly starved of quality entertainment. A mystery likely to remain unsolved.

Audience Reviews for Veronica Mars: Season 3


Super Reviewer


Veronica Mars struggles in its third season as it attempts to adjust to a new network and a post-high school setting. This season Veronica is off to Hearst College, where she's drawn back into her detective ways when her friend's roommate becomes the victim of a serial rapist. Unfortunately, the change in setting is accompanied by some major cast changes, and the new cast just isn't as good. This shakeup also effects the character dynamics, and not for the better. Still, the show continues to deliver smart and compelling mysteries of the week and multi-episode arcs. And, several notable guest stars, including Dan Castellaneta, Laura San Giacomo, and Paul Rudd, make appearances. Though it's entertaining and fun, Season 3 of Veronica Mars is uneven and lacks the clarity of vision that the previous seasons had.
