3.05 VM - President Evil  
Random 3.05 Veronica Mars thoughts, do know that I liked it, I really, really, REALLY liked it.

- I knew this was off to a good start when I saw Daran Norris' name in the credits, I thought YAY!

- I must say, I LOVE Weevil and I've really missed having him around.

- Wallace? Sorry, if he's not playing V's sidekick, I must confess, he bores me.

- Ooh, I HATED the outfits on Logan/Veronica, but loved how she looked so grateful when he showed up. Seriously, neither JD nor KB should ever go near wigs like that again. And who exactly were they supposed to be? The only thing I could think for Logan was one of The Ramones. Nevermind, it's been solved.

Someone suggested (on The LoVe Shack) that they are the duo from White Stripes and after checking on Google, I do believe they are right. Check it out.



- I would have totally liked the scene longer between Weevil/Logan, but I still enjoyed it.
    "Hey, Joe College!"
    "Jose Lunchpail."
Hee! Still, very, very annoying that there was no defense and no follow-through to Weevil's line about Logan treating Lilly badly. Grrrrr.

- Oh, and I must say I got quite a kick out of Lamb's "Good looking, we'll be back for you later" to Logan. Yer right, Lamb-o, he IS good looking!!!

- Veronica, eh. I'm with Weevil. She is like the LEAST trusting person on the planet.

- HEE!!! As Lamb is doing the Robot, you can hear someone say in the background: "Sheriff's doing the Robot; someone get a camera phone." HEE!!!

- I have to say I'm REALLY impressed with the new guys. This episode feels sooooo much like a season one episode. It really does.

Ignoring the fact that how can they just assume that's Claire's rapist in the ATM shot (because it could have just been a guy there to get money) -- that was last week's error -- I really enjoyed this episode. Nick Marck is a good director and I think the new guys did a wonderful job -- this really felt like a S1 episode. There were a lot of little moments that worked, there was a good flow, all of the characters felt like the characters we know and love and I liked the little bit we did get of LoVe. (We'll just ignore next week's promo.)

- Speaking of little moments - I loved Logan gesturing towards Veronica when she was telling the film student to pay attention to her and I LOVED the shot of Logan/Veronica walking with Back-up. Awwwwwwww!!!!! Icon-city? Oh yeah!

All in all, very good episode. Overall, maybe the best of the season, but adding in the L/V stuff that we got in ep 3, this is the second best for me. Very good. I liked a lot.

Do you remain spoiler free, or did you see the preview for next week? In case it's the former I won't say anything else :)

Haha nevermind I just saw your reference to it. Uncool.

Sigh. That was what I was afraid of and really RT has no excuse about leaving it hanging this time because he knows last time he had people confused about whether or not Logan was abusive. And now they did it again. Swell. I was afraid of that.

I am glad you really liked it because that means I probably will.

I think someone posted on the LoVe Shack that Veronica and Logan were dressing up as Veronica and Jughead . . . didn't they? Did I imagine that?

I'm so bummed that I might not get this episode downloaded and I'll be watching it like a week late. Especially since you liked it. Bugger . . .

B xxx

Someone thought so, but I don't think so. Someone suggested the duo from White Stripes and after checking on Google, I do believe they are right. Check it out.



They claimed to be brother/sister (for the group publicity?), but are actually a divorced couple. Why Logan/Veronica would dress up for them is beyond me, but there you have it.

LOL...this was great..and thanks for clearing up the costumes...when i saw Logan I was like WTF?!?! and yes, for now and for my poor, poor heart, I will ignore the previews for next week...besides, you know how they always twist the promos to make you think the worst...I hope I'm right again!! LOL...thanks again for sharing, I love reading your thoughts on the episodes!

Thank you. I plan on having my LoVe thoughts up later in the week. They didn't have much, but I enjoyed their moments.

I must be in the minority but I LOVED Jason Dohring in that costume. I thought he looked adorable.

I thought the White Stripes was a great choice because I can see that being the type of Music that Logan and Veronica would agree on.

I think you are in the minority, but that's cool. I'm glad someone could appreciate it. I personally like my Logan wig-less. (And that's a sentence I never thought I'd type.)

Gotta agree with you on everything.. as usual! Except, although the White Stripes outfits are really weird and I don't think many people actually got it (I know I didn't until I read this!) it does seem like the kinda music they'd both like, and I loved that they actually went in matching outfits. Because that's adorable, hee.

I was hoping that we'd get continuation on the Weevil/Logan/Lilly thing too. That was probably the thing that disappointed me most about the episode.

And yay, Logan and Veronica walking Backup like a lil family was just too cute. If you ignore the fact that they were about to go confront a rapist, of course.

Yeah, I get that they WOULD wear the WS costumes, I just wished they hadn't because it didn't bring the pretty. It distracted from the pretty! And that is sad.

Arrrgghhh!!! The stupid Weevil/Lilly/Logan thing pissed me off. I don't think we'll ever get anything on it. Suck it, Thomas!

Yes, I loved that moment with LoVe and backup. I got me an icon on it now!!! Woohoo!!!

When I saw who wrote the episode, I was very surprised because this was the first episode of the season that I've truly enjoyed. I saw half of the episode last night and I thought "Now THIS is Veronica Mars!" all the while thinking that it was written by one of the regular writers. When I watched my tape earlier and saw the writers, well, color me surprised.

Add me to the Who-the-heck-were-Logan-and-Veronica-supposed-to-be-impersonating club. Glad we got that straightened out.

Veronica accusing Weevil outright of stealing the necklace? Girl has got serious trust issues.

Here's my question
If this guy is her boyfriend why didn't Claire recognize him?

I really liked the small moments between them, left me hungry for more, a lot more. Loved seeing Cliff and his jingle 'Call Cliff and get off.' Nothing better.

I think they went as the White Stripes because dressing up is what Veronica wanted to do, maybe she let Logan pick the costumes to sweeten the pot? (Bad wig choice for Logan)

I really wanted some closure to the whole Lilly comment maybe they are setting it up for a future moment between Logan and Weevil.

How funny was Logan's comment about now that Lamb was there she'd never find her necklace.

I loved when Veronica yanked her necklace off of that little brat (i think that little girl was channeling Madison Sinclair)
