TV.com summary

Veronica Mars is a critically-acclaimed American teen drama/mystery neo-noir series. It premiered on UPN on September 22, 2004 and was canceled on May 22, 2007, at the end of its third season, which aired on The CW Television Network. The show starred Kristen Bell as the title character: a student, progressing from high school to college during the series, who moonlights as a private investigator under the wing of her detective father. Said to be "a little bit Buffy and a little bit Bogart",[1] the show balanced murder mystery, high school and college drama, and social commentary with sarcasm and off-beat humor.

Background events

The series revolves around Veronica Mars, a high-school student and amateur investigator in the fictional Southern California seaside town of Neptune. The first season's main storyline centers on the murder of Veronica's best friend, Lilly Kane, and Veronica's search for Lilly's killer.


The show begins with flashbacks of Veronica's life before the murder. As the daughter of well-respected County Sheriff, Keith Mars, she is living a fairly easy life, hanging out with the "09ers", wealthy students from the fictional 90909 ZIP code, and for a time dating Lilly's brother, Duncan Kane. Since Lilly's murder, however, things have fallen apart for Veronica. Keith Mars' accusation that Lilly's father, billionaire Jake Kane, is Lilly's killer leads to a recall election in which Keith loses his job as sheriff. Afterwards, Veronica's mother Lianne develops a drinking problem and leaves town for unknown reasons. As a result of all this, Veronica becomes ostracized by her former 09er friends. Mr. ...


After losing the recall election, Keith Mars opens "Mars Investigations", a detective agency, where Veronica works part-time. During the series, Veronica uses what she learns at the job to help solve crimes and conduct her own investigations.


Season One

In the course of other investigations, Veronica comes across two pieces of evidence about the Lilly Kane murder case that shatter the status quo. The first breaks the watertight alibi of almost everyone involved with Lilly, including the entire Kane family; the second suggests that Lilly's confessed killer, Abel Koontz, almost certainly did not commit the crime. Veronica resolves to find the true killer.


As Veronica investigates Lilly's murder, she also works on unrelated cases each week, which are introduced and resolved in each episode. Other important investigations that span the season include Veronica's search for her wayward mother and for the person who raped her at the 09er party.


Veronica is joined in her "non-09er" life by new allies: new Neptune High student Wallace Fennel; Eli “Weevil” Navarro, head of the Latino biker gang the PCHers; and Cindy "Mac" Mackenzie, Neptune High's resident computer genius. Using her friends' resources, as well as those provided by her father and his contacts, Veronica gains a reputation for sleuthing and receives an increasing number of requests for help from her schoolmates.

Her new friends also help Veronica deal with Logan Echolls, Lilly's boyfriend at the time of her death, whom Veronica terms the "obligatory psychotic jackass" of Neptune High. Logan indirectly blames Veronica for Lilly’s death and takes pleasure in making her life difficult. When he needs help with traumatic events in his own family, though, he ends up turning to Veronica for help, and near the end of the season they unexpectedly fall into a relationship, shocking both themselves and the other 09ers.

Season Two

The second season begins with the introduction of two ongoing mysteries. First, Logan, in a bout of drunkenness spurred by Veronica's readiness to believe the worst of him, picks a fight with Weevil and the PCHers and ends up accused of killing PCHer Felix Toombs, a charge he denies. The charges put Logan on the wrong side not only of the law, but also of Weevil and his gang. The pressures of the episode and its aftermath provoke Logan to revert to his former delinquent ways, which in turn causes Veronica to break up with him. Partway through the season, Weevil is finally convinced of Logan's innocence, and the two team up to find the real killer, with occasional help from Veronica.


The second mystery is introduced in the final minutes of the first episode, when a school bus full of Neptune High students careens off a cliff, killing almost everyone on board. Veronica, who was supposed to be on the bus, makes it her mission to discover why the bus crashed.


This season shows Veronica’s life returning to much the way it had been before Lilly’s death. After breaking up with Logan during the summer, she reunites with Duncan Kane and is again accepted, albeit begrudgingly, by the 09ers. However, her private-eye sideline and tough persona keep her from being truly assimilated back into the rich crowd, as is made evident in the ironically titled season opener "Normal Is the Watchword." Normal Is the Watchword is episode 1 of season 2 of the television show Veronica Mars. ...


09ers Dick and Cassidy “Beaver” Casablancas become regulars, and the season shows them dealing with a gold-digging stepmother, Kendall Casablancas, with whom they are left when their father flees the country on the lam from the SEC. Wallace also discovers that his biological father is alive, and moves to Chicago to live with him briefly before returning halfway through the season. Kendall Casablancas is a fictional character on The CW television series Veronica Mars. ... The Securities and Exchange Commission, commonly referred to as the SEC, is the United States governing body which has primary responsibility for overseeing the regulation of the securities industry. ...


In a slight departure from the format of the first season, the two main mysteries are solved at different times: the Felix Toombs murder five episodes before the end of the season (in "Plan B"), and the bus-crash mystery in the final episode ("Not Pictured"). The killer of Felix turned out to be Eduardo Orozco, known as "Thumper", and part of the PCHers. Cassidy Casablancas was revealed to be responsible for the bus crash. He had set off a bomb on the bus so that the driver would lose control and plunge over the cliff because two boys on the bus were going to tell people about the sexual abuse they suffered from Woody Goodman, their old Little League coach and the current mayor of Neptune. Much emotional tension is resolved as well, with Veronica reuniting with Logan in the final minutes of "Not Pictured."

Season Three

The third season begins with Veronica and Logan starting their freshman year at Neptune's Hearst College, along with second-season regulars Wallace and Dick. Two new regulars are introduced: Stosh "Piz" Piznarski, Wallace’s roommate, and Parker Lee, Mac’s roommate. Mac and Sheriff Don Lamb also become regulars.

The season was initially designed to have three separate mysteries that would be introduced and resolved discretely instead of concurrently. The first mystery took place over the first nine episodes. Originally, the second mystery was to be seven episodes long and the third mystery was to occur over the last six episodes of the season. This was changed when The CW, the show's new carrier, ordered only a 20-episode season instead of the usual 22 episodes. The second mystery arc was shortened to six episodes,[2] and the third mystery was first changed from a six-episode arc to a five-episode arc and then, after an eight-week hiatus for the show was announced, to stand-alone episodes designed to be friendlier to new viewers.[3][4] “The CW” redirects here. ...


The first mystery, introduced in the Season Two episode "The Rapes of Graff," follows Veronica’s attempts to identify the Hearst College rapist. This mystery is solved in the ninth episode, "Spit & Eggs." The next mystery, a murder, is introduced in the same episode. The Rapes of Graff is episode 16 of season 2 of the television show Veronica Mars. ... Spit & Eggs is episode 9 of season 3 of the television show Veronica Mars. ...


The season chronicles Veronica and Logan’s failing attempts to maintain their relationship in the face of Veronica’s ingrained mistrust. Logan compounds the problem, first when, out of fear for Veronica's safety, he hires a bodyguard,[5] and then again when he has a sexual tryst with Veronica's high-school nemesis Madison Sinclair while his on-again/off-again relationship with Veronica is off. At the end of the second mystery arc, Logan has begun dating Mac's roommate, Parker.


Early on in the season, Keith adds to Veronica's cynicism by beginning an affair with a married client, Harmony Chase. Meanwhile, Wallace struggles to balance academics and sports, and his roommate, Piz, develops a crush on Veronica. Veronica and Piz become a couple after she and Logan have what appears to be a permanent split, in the middle of Season Three. Dick Casablancas, who lived with Logan until joining a fraternity house on campus, has a breakdown and appeals to Logan for help. Mac, meanwhile, despite having emotional scars from the previous year's incident with Beaver, takes up with a new love interest in "Show Me the Monkey." She later dates one of Veronica's contacts on campus. List of Veronica Mars episodes Show Me the Monkey is episode 10 of season 3 of the television show Veronica Mars. ...


Near the end of the second mystery arc, Sheriff Don Lamb is killed, and Keith Mars is appointed interim sheriff. Jake Kane reappears in the intended season finale as a leader of "The Castle," a secret order at Hearst College based on the Order of the Skull and Bones. The fate of Mr. Mars's election campaign for sheriff (opposed by rival P.I. Vinnie Van Lowe) is unresolved at the end of the final episode. Though Veronica is still dating Piz, the possibility of yet another reconciliation with Logan emerges when Logan and Parker break up over his continuing love for Veronica, and Veronica responds less negatively than might be expected to Logan beating up the man who spread a sex video of Veronica on the internet.

Cancellation

On January 19, 2007 CW Entertainment President Dawn Ostroff announced that, while she was pleased with the gradual improvement of Veronica Mars' ratings, the show would be put on hiatus after February sweeps to air a new reality series, Pussycat Dolls Present, in order to launch that show, and prevent the out-of-sweeps rerun erosion common to serialized dramas. The hiatus began March 6 and ended May 1, at which time Veronica Mars returned for the last five episodes of the season, which had non-serialized plotlines.

Future possibilities

Thomas has stated that he is interested in writing a feature film based on the series, in the interests of providing closure to the storylines and character arcs. He created a trailer that takes place years after the third season ends, with the working title "Veronica in the FBI". It is due to be released on the Veronica Mars third season DVD.[10]


As well as the feature film possibility, there have been talks of a Veronica Mars comic book series[11] in the vein of Joss Whedon's Buffy Season Eight.

During the first season, the show aired Tuesdays at 9 pm ET and garnered low ratings, coming in consistently last in its time slot behind The WB's One Tree Hill. However, the combination of its vocal fan base, strong critical praise, and the fact that it fit UPN's desired young female viewer demographic was enough to convince the network to renew the show for a second season. Veronica Mars is the only UPN drama series of the 2004–2005 season to survive into the 2005–2006 season, surviving the cancellation of higher-rated UPN shows Kevin Hill and Star Trek: Enterprise.

In July and August 2005, UPN's corporate sibling CBS also aired repeats of the show on Fridays at 8pm ET, in an effort to increase exposure for the series. The show's pilot episode was originally tested at CBS and almost picked up by the television network.

For the second season, the show was moved to Wednesdays at 9pm ET. Toward the end of the fifth cycle of Top Model in December 2005, the show garnered relatively high ratings, including one of its highest rated episodes of the season, "One Angry Veronica." However, the show's ratings fell in part because of the failure of South Beach, which ended up losing viewers and giving Veronica Mars a weak lead-in. Lost on ABC and FOX's American Idol, both scheduled in the same time slot, also contributed to ratings woes for the show. In addition, several UPN stations regularly carried weekday college and NBA basketball games over the winter, causing Veronica Mars to be pre-empted and moved to a weekend time slot that was inconvenient for its regular viewers.

On February 15, two days before the scheduled new episode "Versatile Toppings" was due to air, the episode was substituted with a rerun, and shortly afterward, UPN announced that the show would go on hiatus until the beginning of Top Model's new cycle in mid-March. This development was met with mixed reactions, with some afraid the show would lose momentum being pulled through February sweeps, and others thankful because the rest of the second season would air uninterrupted and with a much more solid lead-in.

UPN had tested reruns on Tuesday night at 9pm ET for a few weeks before the show resumed new Wednesday episodes to see if ratings were stable in that slot. The former Mars time slot had been a disaster for the network since fall, with both Sex, Love & Secrets and Get This Party Started finishing dead last in the Nielsen season ratings chart for the 2005-2006 season.[13] UPN decided to return the show to its former Tuesday time slot on April 11, 2006 to avoid the Lost/American Idol juggernaut.

Overall, in its second season, the show ranked 145th out of 156 in the season ratings chart.[13] However, UPN renewed the show for another year. Some viewers believe they were given a heads-up during the season two finale when Duncan Kane, answering his phone, asks, "C.W.?" and is answered, "It's a done deal" — although this exchange also fits the plotline rationally in that the caller's name is Clarence Wiedman ("C.W.") and he has just completed an important job for Duncan.[citation needed]


Airing of the show was consistent on Tuesday nights at 9pm ET in the network's final summer, although several UPN affiliates dropped the network immediately after May sweeps (like Salt Lake City station KPNZ), pre-empted UPN programming often (as in the case of Green Bay's WACY, which pre-empted the network's second hour where possible), or moved it to a low-viewed slot in the late night hours (like WBQC in Cincinnati).

On May 16, 2006 it was confirmed that Veronica Mars would be part of the new The CW's Fall 2006–2007 lineup once The WB and UPN ceased operations in fall 2006. The show was initially given a 13-episode order, with the option for more if it did well in the Nielsen ratings. On November 16, 2006 a full season order was confirmed for the third season, although the number of episodes was scaled back to 20 instead of the traditional 22.[17] Although TV Guide suspected this was a sign that a fourth season was unlikely, the episode order of 20 more likely stemmed from the fact that The CW did not have enough money to produce 22.[citation needed] May 16 is the 136th day of the year (137th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The third season of the show aired in the United States and Canada at 9/8c on The CW. Throughout the third season, the series served as a lead-out following Gilmore Girls, a well-established series with a similar audience.

The theme song for the show is The Dandy Warhols' hit single "We Used to Be Friends", from their 2003 album Welcome to the Monkey House. Season three's theme song was remixed in a softer piano style with dark and vibrant electronic beats to reflect the more noir-influenced opening credits. The composer for the show, Josh Kramon, writes the original music heard in the background of most of the show. The sound, which is constructed to convey the film noir themes and hence is different from typical television scores, is highly reminiscent of Air and Zero 7.[18] Air's music has been featured in certain episodes.

Reception and awards

Reception

"In this smart, engaging series about a former popular girl turned crime-solving high school outcast, the hard-boiled dialogue comes from its teen protagonist's mouth in a way that stabs any potential cutesiness in the heart with an ice pick."[21]
"On Veronica Mars, wholesome is out; gritty reality is in. The show never soft-pedals the timeless, fundamental truth that high school is hell."[22]
"Veronica Mars is a character study masquerading as a high-school drama."[23]
"Veronica Mars is a sharp teen noir in the making. Tinged with class resentment and nostalgia for Veronica's lost innocence, this series pulses with promise."[24]
"Equal parts intrigue, drama, and humor, Veronica Mars is also a lesson book for the disenfranchised. Few tv series aim so high; even fewer succeed so well."[25]
"One of the 6 best dramas on TV."[26]
"Best. Show. Ever. Seriously, I've never gotten more wrapped up in a show I wasn't making, and maybe even more than those. (...) These guys know what they're doing on a level that intimidates me. It's the Harry Potter of shows."[27]
"[Veronica Mars] is, hands-down, the best show on television right now, and proof that TV can be far better than cinema. Some of the best TV ever produced"[28]
"Nancy Drew meets Philip Marlowe, and the result is pure nitro. Why is Veronica Mars so good? It bears little resemblance to life as I know it, but I can't take my eyes off the damn thing."[29]
"The best mystery show ever made in America."[30]

Fan campaigns

Veronica Mars has attracted a loyal and devoted fanbase that includes internet communities. Many of them have taken part in minor and major campaigns to bring more viewers and publicity to Veronica Mars in an effort to ensure the show's success.


Among the fanbase are a considerable number of influential television and movie writers, drawn by the show's noir edge and quip-filled writing. These include, notably, Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly), who has called Veronica Mars "the best show ever" and who made a guest appearance on the Season Two episode "Rat Saw God"; and Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma), who guest-starred in the Season Two episode "Driver Ed." Both men have directed their own adherents toward the show, with Whedon sending out calls to Firefly and Buffy fans on their various websites to save Veronica Mars when it was put on hiatus.


A group of devoted fans on LiveJournal who call themselves Cloud Watchers have been dedicated to this effort since the spring of 2006 in light of the then-approaching merger of UPN and The WB into The CW. On May 9, 2006, the group hired a plane to fly between the UPN offices in Los Angeles and the future site of The CW headquarters in Burbank, pulling a banner that read "RENEW VERONICA MARS! CW 2006!" to get the attention of network executives, the press, and anyone else in the Los Angeles area. They had previously sent future CW executives, those in charge at the new network's parent companies, and influential people in the entertainment media care packages including binoculars, information regarding the plane's flight plan, and Veronica Mars-inspired gifts.[34] LiveJournal (often abbreviated LJ) is a virtual community where Internet users can keep a blog, journal, or diary. ...

Veronica Mars was officially renewed for a third season on May 18, 2006 to air on The CW Tuesdays at 9pm ET starting on October 3, 2006 but fans did not stop campaigning for the show.[35] The Cloud Watchers started a new campaign, this one to bring a larger viewership to Veronica Mars by donating DVD sets of season one to libraries across the United States, with a goal of reaching the top 100 Nielsen markets and each of the 50 states. They reached both these goals as of August 14, 2006 and reached their new goal of 500 donated sets on September 5, 2006.[36] is the 138th day of the year (139th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


With the show's third season order cut from 22 episodes to 20 — a move that was met with much alarm and dismay [citation needed] — many of the show's diehard fans swung into action once more. Fans at the Television Without Pity website began organizing a flyer campaign to raise awareness of the show, and increase viewership in time for the show's return to The CW on May 1, 2007. Television Without Pity (often abbreviated TWoP) is a website that provides detailed recaps of certain television dramas and reality TV shows, often by mocking them. ... “The CW” redirects here. ... is the 121st day of the year (122nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the AD/CE era in the 21st century. ...


In early March 2007, Save Veronica Mars [37] — a fan-run website that was instrumental in spreading the word when fans campaigned successfully for a second season — returned with a new, two-pronged purpose: to ensure a fourth season renewal, and to make sure that the show stayed in production long enough to have a sufficient number of episodes for syndication. It has been reported that over 30,000 flyers were printed. March 2007 is the third month of the year. ...


In late March 2007, several other fan campaigns were added to the save Veronica Mars effort, including the "Bars for Mars" campaign.[38] The campaign asks for all fans of the show band together and flood the mailrooms of The CW with actual "Mars" chocolate bar wrappers to show their dedication and loyalty for "Veronica Mars." Hundreds of wrappers have already been sent to CW offices, and more are to follow. March 2007 is the third month of the year. ...


In early June 2007, a mere eight days before an official decision was to be made by The CW on whether or not to bring Veronica Mars back as a mid-season replacement, Hercules — a columnist at the Ain't It Cool News website — posted an idea on that site that caught on. Instead of just sending wrappers, fans have now started ordering Mars bars themselves from a small, family-run business in Houston called TheIndianFoodStore.com[1]. After buying out all the Mars bars they could find, the store switched to Snickers Almond bars — the American replacement for the now defunct American Mars bar. Marshmallows were also added to the list, based on a quote from the show's pilot. In two days, fans ordered — and the store corralled, according to his blog[2] — around 10,000 candy bars and 350 pounds of marshmallows. The idea was to find enough candy bars and marshmallows to fill an 18-wheeler truck that would drive cross-country to The CW headquarters in Burbank to deliver its load prior to the network's June 15 deadline. The shipment was delivered and contained 1400 pounds of candy bars and marshmallows. The total donated from fans to buy the candy was $2942.56. Neither the total weight or contributions include anything purchased and sent by fans on their own. June 2007 is the sixth month of that year. ... “The CW” redirects here. ... is the 166th day of the year (167th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


Filming location

Much of the show's scenes are filmed at Stu Segall Productions in San Diego. The setting of Neptune High for the first and second seasons was located in Oceanside, California. Stu Segall Productions is a 70,000 square foot studio facility located in San Diego, CA and is used primarily for filming television series and movies. ... Oceanside is the third largest city in San Diego County, California. ...


The show's third season setting of Hearst College is fictional, with scenes primarily filmed on the campus of San Diego State University, University of San Diego, and the University of California, San Diego in La Jolla, California.[39] As of 2006, some scenes were filmed at the San Diego City College and at the private Academy of Our Lady of Peace, not far from the other filming locations.[citation needed] Filming on the UCSD campus took place in the Tenaya residence hall located on the John Muir College within UCSD, in the Warren Mall in Earl Warren College, and near the Main Gym. Filming on the USD campus took place in the Camino/Founders residence halls in the College of Arts and Sciences. Scenes from the final episode of season three were filmed at the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS) at UCSD.

Veronica Mars (character) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2600 words)
Veronica Mars is the fictional lead character on The CW television series, Veronica Mars, which debuted on UPN during the fall 2004 season.
Veronica was given a drink made of "rum, coke and roofie" (later learned to be laced with GHB) by longtime enemy Madison Sinclair (she did not know it contained GHB; the drugged drink was meant for her but she unknowingly gave it to Veronica after spitting in it).
Veronica later discovered that it had been Duncan who "raped" her, but Logan later revealed to Veronica that Duncan was under the influence of the same drug given to Veronica when he had sex with her.
