  • Veronica Mars – A Quick Review

    Posted on October 24th, 2011 brenna No comments

    So, I’ve been catching up to the Veronica Mars series. For those who don’t know, Veronica Mars stars the cutie pie Kristen Bell as high school private investigator Veronica Mars who works with her father solving mysteries that began with the death of her best friend Lilly Kane. The story revolves around many plot lines, from season 1 to season 3 with her love story from the golden boy Duncan Kane to the bad boy Logan Echolls, her rape at a party and discovering her real rapist in season 2. It’s been a long journey for her and I haven’t even seen season 3 yet. However, there’s one question I’d really like to ask for all fans of VM.

     

    Why Logan?

     

    Why Logan and not Duncan? I don’t know but I’m not catching the Logan fever. I don’t think they have chemistry and I really hate the way Logan twitches and acts – he looks like Robert Pattinson every time he goes on stage – half drunk, half drugged and has no idea what he’s doing. Jason Dohring plays a boring representation of Logan Echolls with a monotonous tone and facial expression that I can’t help wondering how fans chose him over Duncan. Not that Duncan was so much better, but I thought he had more connection with VM than Logan did. By the way, the baby plot line on Duncan and Meg’s baby – familiar but I wasn’t sure which TV show had that plot line first – was it One Tree Hill or VM?

     

    Whatever. I still don’t get why it had to be Logan. There’s rarely any show that I don’t agree with the ending leading man – except for the Vampire Diaries (totally team Damon!) but it hasn’t ended yet, although I’m not hoping too much. Gilmore Girls ended without any leading men (was okay with that), Wildfire finished with Junior (yey!), Roswell with Liz and Max of course, One Tree Hill with Peyton and Lucas (although I did hope Chase would end up with Mia instead of Alex), Make it Or Break it with Kaylie and Austin and hopefully Hart of Dixie will go along with Zade or Zoe and Wade love team. So, aside from Life Unexpected (I had rooted for Ryan), Veronica Mars is one of the only upsets I have with the ending leading man. At least, in LU, I was okay with the runner up. I really don’t think Jason Dohring brought a lot into the character aside from his increasingly irritating monotonous voice and facial expressions.
