Critic Reviews for Veronica Mars Season 3

[Season 3] creates some interesting drama - following in "Mars" tradition.

[It was a] troubled and unloved third season.

In season 3 Veronica Mars remains enjoyable and engaging, with all of the characters and wit that we have grown to love, but I will not deny that this is the weakest of the seasons.

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

Oct 9, 2018 | Full Review…

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

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

Jan 23, 2014 | Full Review…

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

Jan 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.

Jan 23, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

For all of its wondrous charms and agreeable reasons for watching, the fact is that after Bell and a smattering of quote-worthy dialogue, Veronica Mars probably doesn't have enough dramatic heft to break out of its own cult status.

Jan 23, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Season 3 did set up the intriguing and perfectly realistic possibility that Veronica Mars could not only survive but continue to find ways to reinvigorate itself.

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.
