SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY


Episode 3.5: President Evil. Original Airdate 10.31.06

 "It's Halloween at Hearst and while Veronica is looking for Logan at the underground campus casino, the place is robbed and the thieves take Veronica's necklace, given to her by Lilly Kane. Meanwhile, Dean O'Dell and his wife Mindy seek Keith's help in tracking down Steve, the biological father of Mindy's son, who is deathly ill. Wallace, distracted by a new group of friends, struggles to pass his Mechanical Engineering class."


Daniel's Thoughts:

  • Claire is wearing a terrible baldcap/wig…
  • That awful TA from the first episode also looks like he’s wearing a terrible wig.
Definitely not Lucky who got killed last season. Totally different person.

  • I don’t get this – this oral presentation.  Veronica is smartly using Weevil as her ‘audio-visual’ which her professor, Landry, I think would have been more impressed with.  But I’m not really sure the point.  Also it feels like it’s taking all class – there are like 100 kids in that class.  They couldn’t possibly all give their oral presentations if it takes all class.
  • It’s Halloween.  You can tell with the cheaply put up decorations.  Whose job is that?  I don’t remember my university’s quad looking like this…  It feels more like a HS thing.
  • Hey, it’s Wallace.  He seems like he’ll be used for more than exposition this time.
  • Hey! Another on my soap: Jamie Ray Newman.  She played Kristina, Alexis’s sister who got killed off way too early.  But at least she’s had an okay career since then.  She’s the dean’s hotter, younger wife.
  • Oh shit, Veronica walked into a Halloween party that’s getting robbed by stereotyped burglers in president masks.
  • Also, what is she dressed as? I honestly don’t have a clue
  • I don’t know what Logan is dressed as either.  But they’re obviously a couple’s costume.
Does ANYONE know who they're supposed to be?

  • Me: AH RICHARD GRIECO!  Zelda: Who’s that? ME: WHO’S THAT?  Johnny Depp’s MUCH BETTER replacement on 21 Jump Street
  • Wallace’s friend quotes En Vogue as a life’s mantra – so I automatically like him.
  • Veronica thinks Weevil is the culprit….but I don’t see it – it didn’t seem like Weevil’s build, as Veronica proclaims.
  • I hate when Veronica accuses Weevil – she’s usually wrong.  They’ve been through too much together, as Weevil points out.
  • Yay, Cliff! I like when he guest stars.
  • So Richard Greico’s the deadbeat dad.
  • They find the stolen jewelry in Weevil’s car.  And there’s other corroborating evidence.  I still don’t believe it.  I think Weevil was framed.
  • Aww, I love when Veronica runs into fans.  Danny from the pizza joint is one such fan.
  • Cliff is having a meal with Keith at his office – they’re having…sandwiches.  Why not.
  • Uh oh.  Keith’s in trouble. 
  • “If I don’t bring up the law, this won’t be considered a billable hour.” –Cliff
  • “I can say half a sentence and get her to yell at me for three hours” –Dean.   Marriage.
  • The theater department is not amused with Veronica’s humor.  Also, more college stereotypes.  But seriously, where’s the stage manager? She’d be all over this.
  • Oh Wallace.  Your C-plot is annoying and pointless.
  • So campus security did it.  Yeah, he doesn’t really have Weevil’s build.
  • I love that Back-Up knows instinctually who the bad guy is.  He should be on all Veronica’s cases.
  • So Veronica finds her necklace, grabs it off the shitty little girl.  (yay!), Richard Greico saves his son’s life and exonerates Keith (and the Dean and her wife) (yay!),  Weevil, too, is exonerated (yay!), and Wallace gets caught cheating…. (boo!)
  • Wallace and Veronica have had no interaction in this episode – but there’s a cute email that we see on screen with the subject line “Snickerdoodleme”.




Zelda's Thoughts:

  • Man, poor Claire. You can see how much she’s still hurting.
  • Oy Tim Foyle is leading class today. My favorite pretentious tool. “Veronica Mars, why don’t you come down here and blow us all away.”
  • Her presentation is … Weevil?


  • "Dr. Landry said we were allowed audio visual aids. He’s both. Audio:"// "Yo." // "And visual:" // 
  • *pose*
  • This is actually quite adorable, and I do always like when they let us hang with Weevil.
  • Aw, Weevil recognizes that the necklace V is wearing is Lilly’s. I like when the show/characters remember her.
  • Also shoutout to V being good at poker.
  • It’s … kind of weird that Weevil is so upset V is dating Logan (again), and using Lilly as his reason (especially considering how close WeLo got in S2 trying to find Felix’s killer). I don’t get it.
  • Dean and Mrs. O’Dell are hiring Keith for … something. This really is the smallest town.
  • Ah, his stepson is dying … is this the same kid who trashed his car?
  • We can’t tell what V’s Halloween costume is.
  • Also wow the racist “latino” accent the thieves at the party are using. It’s gross. (yes yes he's doing Al Pacino's racist latino accent from Scarface, fine. but like ew stop)
  • And they steal her Lilly necklace. V, with angry and scared tears in her eyes and a wry smile, “You’re gonna regret that.”
  • Seconding Daniel, I have NO clue what LoVe's couples costume is.
  • Oh and V is gonna accuse Weevil because of the racist accent the thief used and because she knows he’s mad at her over Logan/Lilly
  • And he’s rightly mad: “I can’t believe you’d think I’d do that. To you. After all we’ve been though.” //“After all we’ve been through, can you really blame me?” // “Hey Backup, you can stay. Your girl’s gotta go.” Damn straight.
  • YESSS CLIFF McCORMACK. And he’s doing delightful “I’m a voice actor” riffs and it’s perfect because his voice.

  • Weevil: “Any reason why everyone suspects me for a crime I don’t even know about?"


  • Seriously, I don’t get the renewed antipathy between Logan and Weevil (bc Logan’s being extra-tool-y too). I thought they reached a peace. I’m so confused.
  • Ugh, Weevil’s gotten framed. “Or you could save yourself the trouble and take my word.” *both V and W laugh* “That was good. Well done.”
  • Okay seriously who is Wallace’s new toolbag bad!influence! friend?
  • Haha this pizza guy is fanboying all over V. “Remember when you …” over and over.
  • “Hello Square One. Nice to see you again.”
  • Oh right. The gross gum from the little shit kid.
  • Dang, Botando the deadbeat stepdad is awol. I have no memory or investment in this plot
  • “Excuse me officers, but if I don’t bring up the law, this won’t be considered a billable hour.” I love Cliff so much.
  • And it’s the introduction of Max! I forget if we ever actually care about Max but I currently don’t.
  • But also sigh Wallace this is a bad path. Cheating on the exam is not a good way to earn a degree. Because you’re earning nothing.
  • The O’Dells are the worst? Like the worst.
  • And the thieves were the Hearst security guards. That’s great. Just great.
  • At least Weevil is cleared.
  • And that little shit girl is wearing V’s necklace.
  • As Wallace goes in to face judgement for cheating, Weevil is released from prison.
  • Backup’s had three scenes this ep! He’s so busy.
  • Gasp! How could Claire be that dude's girlfriend when she claimed not to recognize him in the photo?


Crossfire!

Show: shot with weirdass poster in the background
Z: *stentorian voice* THIS IS YOUR GOD
D: Yeah, what IS that
Editor: Turns out the poster was designed by Shepard Fairey, best known for “Andre the Giant Has a Posse” and the Barack Obama “Hope” poster.

A Tale of Two Logans

Charlie may not surf, but Logans do.
Episode 3.4: Charlie Don't Surf. Original Airdate 10.24.06

"When Logan is informed that his inheritance is running low, he becomes suspicious and enlists Veronica's help to sort through his financial records. Veronica uncovers that large sums of money have been going to a man named Charlie Stone. Meanwhile, Keith is hired by Harmony to investigate her cheating husband."



Zelda's Thoughts:

  • "This is a bad idea." // "No, it's not." // "You only think it's not cuz you came up with it." // "Ergo, how bad could it be? Math, sweetie. Me plus idea equals good." Mars banter: always a good start to an episode
  • Awww V’s two men are having dinner together. How mature adulty can we be?
  • Logan is actually behaving pretty well. But oh are the Marses tense. Mostly V. Wish they could have an actual convo.
  • And with one line, we again explain why Mac is not in this episode and boooooo I want Mac!
  • Parker’s wig looks better than when her mom almost moved her home … probably because at this point it’s a “wig”
  • I’m glad V is finally synthesizing her own history with rape and the current season plot, so that she can actually be an advocate/ally/detective and not rolling her eyes at the feminists on campus
  • Uh oh Logan’s funds are running low …
  • AWWW JUST SHOOT ME! REUNION. They have lovely chemistry, but I wish this weren’t the story it’s going to be.
  • Whaaaaaaat is going on with this extra's hair.


  • I … don’t quite get why Veronica doesn’t trust Nish. Is it just because she published the article when V asked her not to? That’s not … that’s not a trust thing. It’s a shitty thing, but it’s not dishonesty.
  • Dick in the Mars household. What is the world coming to.
  • “We’re a frat. Why rape the cow when you’re swimming in free milk?” what a bag of douche
  • Wow, V’s gonna take the job defending the frat. I just … she just … V’s on the weird side of history with this entire arc. I mean, I’m sure she’s partially taking it to see if they *are* responsible, because she doesn’t actually want to help rapists get away with it if they’re guilty, but it’s weird and off-center.
  • Keith and Harmony are phone flirting and he’s smiling so cutely and it’s cute except KEITH SHE IS MARRIED DON’T BE THAT GUY
  • And now they’re having a pizza date in Keith’s office.
  • Daniel just screamed in utter outrage “WHY AREN’T THEY EATING. THEY’RE STILL NOT EATING.”
  • Wow Keith is so smitten so fast. The way he’s half-giggling half-blushing.
  • I keep having to remind myself we’ve met Chip Diller before because he’s … rather bland.
This is him, right?

  • And it’s one step forward, two steps back, as the women protesting the frats and rape see Veronica come out of the frat house ... and see Dick drape his arm familiarly over her shoulders.


  • Gasp that’s two frat boys with bruised knuckles. Have we a fight club?
  • PLANET ZOWIE SEARCH ENGINE.
  • Gasp Logan has a brother.
  • Ohhhhh right the women went to the party with rat traps on their “gropeable” parts, and that’s why the frat boys have bruised knuckles. I forgot about that. I’m amazed they don’t have broken fingers.
  • Logan Echolls and Logan Huntzberger!
  • “You surf?” “As often and as long as I can.” “Maybe we are brothers.” BUT THE EPISODE IS CALLED CHARLIE DON’T SURF.
  • Wow and the real Charlie Stone actually looks more like Logan than fake!Charlie does.
  • Ugh this story Logan’s telling about Aaron forcefeeding him pears. Aaron was the fucking worst. I’m so glad he’s dead.
  • Ahahaha I love it. V outs the reporter, Logan moves as if to punch him, he says “please take a swing, it'd make a great lead,” Logan looks like he’s calmed down enough to not do it … then he socks him right in the nose.
  • I guess my question is how did the reporter plant himself so that when Logan reached out, he got Logan Huntzberger instead of the actual Charlie Stone?
  • “So it’s a piece of cake?” // “A monkey with a friend who’s a bank representative can do it.”
  • “Hello Dick, Chip, Faceless Star Trek Crew Members”
  • Shit, and because of that crappy reporter, Charlie Stone’s been outted as Aaron’s son, and is being followed by paparazzi
  • Oh I see … Logan thinks Charlie’s the one who sicced the Vanity Fair reporter on Logan. I … why? I don’t really get it.
  • At least he lost his story after Logan went on TV with the story.
  • Damn, the reporter was tapping Charlie’s line and that’s how he got in. Ugh, poor Logan and poor Charlie. But also that’s … illegal right? Not that V can throw stones about tapping lines, but still.


Daniel's Thoughts:  

  • Logan’s coming to dinner. 
  • I love that Veronica is giving Logan a list of rules to have dinner with her father. 
  • Oh she’s so nervous, it’s hilarious.  She so wants her dad and Logan to get along.
  • Parker’s got a brand new wig and she looks like a country western star.
"I'm joining the cast of Nashville next"

  • I’m glad Veronica is making an effort to get to know Parker & show empathy and understanding. 
  • Oh crap, Logan’s running out of money.  I guess living in a hotel will do that to you.
  • And Veronica has her mystery of the week.  Logan thinks his manager is skimming off the top.
  • Oh hey, it’s Laura San Giacomo – a totally underrated actress.  She’s so good.
  • Zelda tells me she and Enrico were a couple on Just Shoot Me.  I think I saw that show once or twice?
  • The newspaper says “rape-ternity”.  …Clever pun or forced….
  • “If you’re not gonna shoo it out, I’m gonna step on it” – Veronica, re: Dick being in her apartment.
  • Even when Dick’s trying to be nice, he’s still a dick,
  • I love the moment you can see Veronica’s mind churning.  She takes Dick’s case because she sees an angle in which she can take advantage.
  • Keith and Harmony (Laura San G) totally have chemistry.  They’re flirting but I don’t think they’re fully aware of it yet.
  • Did Veronica invade her dad’s wardrobe? What is this?
Veronica looks as uncomfortable as I do

  • There’s an entire giant pizza in between Keith and Harmony and neither of them are eating.  WHY ARE THEY NOT EATING?  The box is open.  The pizza is getting cold.  I’m not paying attention to anything else that’s happening.
  • Finally, she takes a slice.  SHE DOES NOT EAT IT.  EAT IT, WOMAN.

EAT THE PIZZA

  • Frat house – more pizza.  A frat guy takes a slice.  I’m very invested in the pizza of this episode. [I can't believe we didn't order pizza during our watch. I was even about to suggest it. - Z]
  • Oh hey! Parry Shen!  He’s on my soap now as a gay lab manager who just stole a baby.  That’s fun.  Oh his name is Bradley Cooper on the show.
  • Parker’s got a much better wig on now.  Just in case you were keeping track.
  • Aaron Echolls – still causing trouble.
  • Avy Kaufman is the name of the manager of the fake charity – Avy Kaufman is also the name of a famous a casting director with a very impressive resume.
  • Ok so Aaron’s Kidz is actually an accurate name…since the money is going to Logan’s brother that he doesn’t know…
  • Parker is always heavily suspicious of Veronica.  I understand her mistrust but, I wish she’d get past this.
  • “Did you go as a hypocrite?”
  • Oh it’s Matt Chzhzhurchcy.  He’s Logan’s long lost brother.  Look at that baby face.
  • Apparently Logan’s sister shot Nicole Ritchie with a BB Gun.
  • I wonder why Charlie never contacted Logan…It’s not discussed here.
  • Logan and Charlie both surf.  OK.
  • Oh man, Veronica does her stuff and doesn’t have to search far to find out Charlie isn’t who he says he is.
  • Logan’s stories of how abusive his dad was…
  • And….Charlie is not Charlie.  He’s a reporter.  Man, Logan just can’t catch a break.
  • But at least he punches NotCharlie out.
  • I really like Harmony’s story.  It’s more complicated than the usual ‘wife hiring a private detective to catch her husband cheating’ story.
  • The real Charlie Stone…is now getting harassed by reporters.  He’s the one that (most likely) put that reporter on Logan so…does he deserve it?  Veronica’s not sure that it was him, but I agree with Logan – what else could have happened?
  • But Veronica was right.  Logan ruined his half-brother’s life for nothing.
  • And Logan feels terrible.  But he’s so quick to react.  It’s a pattern for him.  It’s hard for him to trust and there’s a reason for that.

101 Brooding Comments

Episode 3.3: Wichita Linebacker. Original Airdate 10.17.06

"Veronica is hired by a Hearst football player to help him find his stolen playbook before the next practice, or risk losing his scholarship. As a result of the expose Veronica wrote about the  campus sorority, Dean O'Dell threatens to expell her if she doesn't reveal one of her sources. Logan tells Veronica his schedule is keeping them apart, but she realizes he has been spending time participating in illegal gambling. Meanwhile, Veronica convinces Keith to hire Weevil to assist with office work at Mars Investigations."

Daniel's Thoughts:

  • Football!  College! 
  • Coach acting like a dick.
  • “jealous would involve piano wire.”
  • Football player is missing something.  Could this be a case for Veronica Mars?
  • Weevil is still part of this show? Veronica is visiting him at his new job at the car wash.
  • She takes a call while she’s talking to him.  Rude.
  • Piz’s thing is that he’s trying to join a radio station.
  • Oh hey, the football player is Armie Hammer!
  • So the dean of Neptune University  is Ed Begley Jr. Ok
  • Aww, Armie Hammer is very pretty but he’s never been a great actor. He’s kinda boring in this…as he is in most things.
  • The stare – lol – that worked!


  • Oh man – I don’t really remember this – Weevil being Keith’s new ‘secretary’.
  • Z and I are both not writing much as we usually do.  It’s just not very interesting, right now. [I had to come back weeks after we watched it together, to rewatch it and take new notes. I miss Buffy - Z]
  • Aww, but Eli is doing some fine detective work.
  • Art student guy.  I think what’s getting to me this season is how many stereotypes there are.  The militant feminists, the dumb sorority girls, the meathead athletes, the douchey frat guys…
  • “I’m an artist.” “So was Hitler.”  Jesus, Veronica.
  • Veronica finds popcorn in meathead’s bag – so…that incriminates the popcorn guy.  Cause…he’s just got…popcorn on him…all the time…stuck to his…sleeve…?  What?
  • So we see the struggling relationship of the Logan/Veronica relationship– Logan just seems to be getting into the newness of college which means he’s pulling away from Veronica.  He loves her but maybe needs some space…but Veronica is getting uncharacteristically jealous.  And she traced his phone which is totally uncool.
  • Boys of Neptune are really into poker…  It’s a recurring activity…
  • “The surveillance thing is starting to bug…” Nice pun, Logan.
  • Aww, and Veronica is sulkily listening to sulky music cause she’s sad about Logan.
  • Weevil’s anger problems got the best of him – and he’s fired from Keith’s office.
  • Piz got his show, so that’s cool, I guess.
  • So Trish is the culprit – and I guess she’s doing it cause…she loves him? I guess?
  • There are too many endings and culprits in this mystery.  It’s like a procedural episode.
  • Yay, Weevil gets another job.  And conveniently it just might help Veronica in future cases.
  • I like when Veronica & Logan make up.  She’s right – there’s a reason she has trust issues.

Zelda's Thoughts:

  • is weightlifting class really a thing?
  • bicker bicker bicker
  • ARMIE HAMMER. BABY ARMIE HAMMER
  • WEEVIL HI WEEVIL WE'VE MISSED YOU
  • Weevil plea bargained out of a murder charge for Thumper to assault. So that's something
  • And because his asshole boss is also causally racist, Weevil lets his temper show. I just feel so awful about everything that's happened to him
  • oh right Piz does radio
  • aw man, Ed Begley Jr. Always a delight
  • "Mrs. O'Dell was my grad student, back when you could do things like that." wow I just
  • and now he's threatening to expel V if she doesn't reveal her sources for the sorority story last week. so that's fun
  • I take back what I said about Ed Begley Jr.'s delightfulness
  • is Guitar Hero a sponsor? Is that why we have the insightful dialog of "Dude that game rocks." "Yeah it does."

  • interesting twist. V refers Weevil to work for her dad: "Eli Navarro, remember?" // "You mean Weevil?"
  • "Didn't he get busted for murder?" // "Assault." // "See, so he's not even a very good murderer."
  • I don't super love how this show portrays the women trying to fight the, you know, systemic rape culture (to say nothing of the serial rapist for this season) as overly militant Angry Women tropes. It's a weird tonal dissonance, particularly with a show that had its protagonist raped in the pilot. You can say it doesn't age well, especially with the current #MeToo movement, but it left a bad taste in the mouth back then too. (at least it's not acting like the dipshit satirists are in the right either. they're just morons)
  • it's a weird thing the show hits, with the LoVe ship this season: we've gotten past all the drama of high school, Logan's probably not going to be convincingly wearing the Villain Hat again, and the chemistry between the two is undeniable. So we're upping V's distrustful nature (which, yes, has always been there, but this is a step backward in her development) to build up tension between the two of them, and give them an excuse to break up later in the season. and I dunno, it feels inorganic.
  • Wow, so that throwaway moment of V looking for Mac and not being able to find her is the excuse for not having her in the episode this week.
  • awwww Keith likes Weevil's detectiving. He's got his know-how and it's kind of awesome.
  • also wtf to V's "So was Hitler" exit line
  • oh joy, Mercer Hayes has entered the show
  • and they tip us off almost immediately that he's a tool when he makes fun of the dude with a stutter
  • aw damn, Weevil fucked up his second assignment from Keith, beating up a child abuser, and getting Keith fired from that particular job
  • aw and Weevil trying to be strong and hide how gutted he is: "I get it. I'd fire me. Man, I just ... I really dug this stuff, you know. I actually thought I was okay at it."
  • Weevil: "The Dean's a pal of yours? You actually made friends with somebody?" // V: "Actually he wants me expelled." // W: "That sounds more like it."
  • Oh dang, V tells O'Dell she got his car fixed for free. But she told Weevil it was a $2k job. So she paid Weevil?
  • And Claire ("the blonde in the middle") was raped
  • "Is this the help desk? Cuz I need a little help." // "Let me guess, you have this pathologically suspicious girlfriend, and you hope maybe there's a guidebook?" // "No, it's more like, uh ... what's beyond pathological?" ... and V apologizes. I don't love this saga, but Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring are acting the hell out of this scene.
Also: Chemistry

Daniel: “I don’t understand boys.  Or football.” - Trish
Zelda: Keith, holding out a camera; "You familiar with these things?" // Weevil: "Yeah, toasters, right?"
