...And It's Going To Bug The Hell Out Of Me

I Know What You'll Do Next Summer - Well, at least if this episode is any indication. The A-plot is well crafted and brings attention to an important subject, but almost everything else in the episode has to do with people acting like whiny, suck-ass babies in their romantic relationships. As if we needed another reason not to believe in those.

But their mutual suspicion was all engineered by the real killer, Lucky Tim, whom Veronica foils in a Christie-esque confrontation. All that was missing was a British accent, but Veronica can work on that.

Her Name Is Luka...

The Girl Next Door - ...she lives on the second floor! She lives upstairs from Veronica! No you haven't seen her before! If you hear something late at night, some kind of trouble, some kind of fight! Just don't ask us what it was...because it was kind of predictable. But Weevil and Logan bring their respective charisma to bear on each other, and they're finally having fun, fun, fun. Also, they finally tell us when Duncan broke up with Veronica. Ssshhh. We'll tell you. Just not here.

Melrose Law

Return Of The Kane - Real-life married couple Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin show up to play Logan's parents and, shock of shocks, it ain't The Waltons. Meanwhile, Duncan wins a school election, pleasing his dad. Less pleasing to his dad may be the revelation that Veronica and Keith get new evidence that might exonerate Lilly's accused killer. And Weevil gets less screen time than does anyone else in the credits. They really need to stop it with that.

You Gogo, Girl

The Wrath Of Con - Veronica dresses up like a Japanese schoolgirl to get close to some computer geeks who are using an email scam to get money to write a computer game. Sound dumb? Well, just between us, it is, a little bit. But the episode is rescued by a heaping helping of footage of Lilly Kane when she was alive, and now everyone understands what the fuss was about. By the memorial service at the end, you may even be crying. Weevil was. Really.

Skank Side Story

Credit Where Credit's Due - Paris Hilton is rich and snotty and a two-timing skank. Coincidentally, so is her character in this episode: she's dating Logan and one of the bikers at the same time. Sound bad? Well, it isn't at all, actually. Hilton sucks, but everyone and everything else is really good, and by the end, Hilton is gone and we're pulled deeper into the Lilly Kane mystery. Smell ya later, Hilton! On second thought, ew.

Veronica Mars...

Pilot - ...would kick Joey Potter's ass, which is the only reason we're willing to forgive people calling her "Veronica Mars" all the time. She's a high-schooler who's had a lot of stuff go wrong recently, but she's shrugged it all off and become a PI in the making, helping her dad, who's a PI in the annoying. And the town needs PIs, because it's got a lot of secrets. Hopefully UPN will stick with this show long enough for us to find out what they are.
