Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 22

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 22: Not Pictured

This one starts where last episode left off, right after Aaron’s acquittal on all charges. Veronica’s cynicism kicks into overdrive and she concludes that life sucks, the universe is random, and assholes always prosper. Keith tells her not to obsess and that Aaron will get what’s coming to him sooner or later. He reminds her they have a business to run, but he’s pretty shaken by the verdict too.

Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 21

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 21: Happy Go Lucky

This one starts at Aaron Echolls trial for murdering Lilly Kane. Aaron is on the stand and he spews a load of crap about Lilly hit on him and he was flattered because he was an aging movie star. Aaron claims he never had sex with Lilly and that he only went to her house because she stole his Oscar statue. Aaron says Duncan came in ranting and raving, so Aaron left … the implication being Duncan killed her afterwards. Veronica is pissed off about Aaron lying on the stand and looks forward to testifying about the tape she saw of him banging Lilly. She really wants to nail Aaron, but Keith warns her Aaron’s lawyer will try everything he can to discredit her. Veronica says she unflappable; I guess we’ll see.

Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 20

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 20: Look Who’s Stalking

This one starts with Veronica at the doctor’s office finding out she has chlamydia. She’s blindsided, since Duncan’s the only guy she’s ever been with, they used protection, and she doesn’t think he could’ve had chlamydia anyway. The doctor says you can never tell and prescribes antibiotics. Continue reading “Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 20”

Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 19

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 19: Never Mind the Buttocks

This one starts with Veronica testifying in a deposition about the sex tape featuring Aaron Echolls and Lilly Kane. Now that the tape has conveniently (or inconveniently, depending on whose side you’re on) disappeared, everyone who viewed it has to be deposed. Aaron’s lawyer tries to undercut Veronica’s testimony, but she holds it together pretty well. Continue reading “Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 19”

Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 18

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 18: I Am God

This episode is a bit weird, as it contains multiple flashbacks and dream sequences. I guess they’re supposed to represent Veronica’s subconscious as she pieces together clues about the bus crash, so the confusion we feel as spectators probably mirrors her own. We start with a quick dream sequence where Veronica is on the bus with several other students. She’s woken by her teacher and sent to the guidance office for sleeping in class. Continue reading “Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 18”

Continue reading “Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 17”

Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 16

Veronica Mars S01 titleEpisode 16: The Rapes of Graff

This one starts in English class, where the teacher tells her students they have to write an essay on freedom for Mayor Woody Goodman. Sounds like something for ten-year-olds, but the winner gets a short internship (which will look good on college applications) and they get to push the plunger to blow up the old baseball stadium. Continue reading “Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 16”

Continue reading “Veronica Mars Reviews: Season 2, Episode 15”

This one starts with a stoner pizza delivery guy (Corny) getting tased and mugged as he makes a delivery. At school, Dick dents Veronica’s car door, but he’s distracted by another student (Kelly) making gay jokes about Dick’s unwitting encounter with the transgender prostitute last episode.
