VM 3.14 -- Not Much To Say  
I thought it was a good episode, not great, but good. This arc (despite the rip-your-heart-out L/V stuff is a much better arc than the first, imo).

As a long-time Lamb-hater, I'm glad he's dead, but making Keith sheriff kinda undermines the whole Mars against the corruption thing. Ah well. This show stopped being about that in seasont two.

And I figured out the resolution to the coach's murder when Keith told Veronica about the illness. How come I was able to figure it out, but these two supposed sharp detectives weren't until they were flat-out told?

I loved LoVe scene because I read undercurrents and subtext left and right. Except for the line about giving the thing to Mac (which was exposition and I thought KB made the switch to quickly) everything else was so, so, sooooo loaded. To me, it was so clear that both still madly love each other, they're just both trying to put a brave face on it because they think it's over, but they are still in each other's lives.

I did love the one LoVe scene SO MUCH!, but that love was undermined by the Logan/Parker everywhere. Ugh. I still feel a little sick. Seriously. They couldn't have waited until the two month break was over to have Logan already hanging out with another girl? SERIOUSLY!?! I am glad that we got at least some reaction from Veronica about it, but still. UGH. UGH. UGH.

Still, it does look like it's playing out like I described in my scenario so far. Oh joy.

As for Veronica's over-the-top-ness in jail ... honestly I got the idea that Veronica was kinda freaked out and was overcompensating. I think that it would have been more obvious had La Bell not been playing most of the season like this. But really, I did get that because there were moments, just a twinge here or there, a shadow in her eyes, a downcast to her smile before she turned it "on" to perform for Keith or Cliff or Wallace. And who was the one person she DIDN'T perform for? Oh, that's right. Logan.

Uh huh.

Look at me finding shippiness in everything!!!!!!!

I really liked this one.
I was cracking up at the sutra and the swimming and the Mac actually getting some.

LOVED Logan taking a pix of Veronica in jail and Wallace's line about the Sheriff being a true friend of Dorothy

It was so much fun to pick on Lamb, I'm almost going to miss him. Even brighter side to this no more Lamb/Veronica fics except as an AU

I'm praying that your take on how V/P and L/P will be portrayed will come to pass.

Re: I really liked this one.
Hated the L/P stuff so much. Seriously.

I figure that the 4 hours or so I have to wait to download a VM ep is not worth it since reading your previous post
but,
this is gOOOd enough incentive!\o/

I really liked the L/V scene, but it seems to be a split in the fanbase, you either loved it or hated it.

This was a very so-so episode to me but I agree that there was a lot of subtext in the scene at the jail between Logan and Veronica. (now if she had only played her earlier scenes with Keith and Cliff a little less cartoony . . .)

I did love all of Logan's scenes. He's just such a cutie.

I'm going to be in the minority and not actually having a problem with the earlier scenes because honestly I got the idea that Veronica was kinda freaked out and was overcompensating. I think that it would have been more obvious had La Bell not been playing most of the season like this.

And aww, Dana!!!!!!!

Well you make a point but her acting has just been so all over the place that I can't tell if that's what she's doing or if it's another over the top moment like she had with Keith.

I see some like the episode, some don't. I guess I'm in the meh category.

Ack!

I'll watch till the bitter end but why can't we have great episodes like the one last week or Show me the Monkey all the time? Other shows manage to do this. I hate being to meh about the show. Maybe I'm just tired. I've been super busy lately.

I added more along this thought, and shippiness was added to it. Woohoo!

I did get that because here were moments, just a twinge here or there, a shadow in her eyes, a downcast to her smile before she turned it "on" to perform for Keith or Cliff or Wallace. And who was the one person she DIDN'T perform for? Oh, that's right. Logan.

Uh huh.
