Lisin January 10, 2014 Share January 10, 2014 From IMDB: Meet Veronica Mars. Your typical high school student and private eye. A year ago, Veronica's best friend Lilly was murdered. Her father, Keith, then the town sheriff, accused Lilly's billionaire father of the murder. When another man confessed, Keith was booted from office. All of Veronica's friends stopped talking to her, and her mother left town. But as Veronica starts her junior year of high school, it becomes clear that nothing about her life is what it seems. I'm posting this as no spoilers so that if people are watching for the first time the individual episode threads don't spoil the rest of the show. I watched this show all the way through when it aired, and started a re-watch back when it was still on Netflix a few years ago and I'm still struck by how good a pilot it is. The voiceover is not annoying and really helps move things along without feeling overly simple. It also lends a nod to the old film noir detective movies. All in all I think it's a great pilot. The phones really flip me out (FLIP! PUN!) because aside from the old tech this show could be on the air today easily but then Veronica or Logan goes into their phone to look up a number and I'm immediately reminded it's 2004. I had forgotten that the Kanes' fortune was grown by perfecting online video streaming which made me chuckle in a meta way since thanks to the Kanes I'm able to stream this on Amazon. 4 Link to comment
