Question: Can you give me any good scoop on Veronica Mars?
Answer: Sure can. The Nov. 30 episode is packed with so many bombshells that the advance screener UPN mailed out to critics was hitched to a disclaimer that went a little something like this: "As a mystery series, there are a couple of reveals in this episode that we would like to keep secret from viewers. In this spirit, we ask that you please not reveal who has been [censored] to the [censored] pole, any [censored] issues, the [censored]'s identity or [censored], the reveal of who [censored] whom to get [censored] in the end, or the episode's final surprise ending." Hey, I just thought of something: You guys have been jonesing for a new AA game, so why don't we see how many [censored]s you can fill in after watching next week's episode. The first person to correctly guess all of 'em wins a cool piece of Mars swag plus a copy of the soundtrack! May the best Mar
Question: How awesome has Veronica Mars been these past few weeks? Your Frienemy, Kristin from E! Online, is reporting that a major character is going away very soon. Any scoop on that?
Answer: Actually, Papa Mars (Enrico Colantoni) himself dropped a little hint about that very subject in our latest podcast.
Veronica MarsHere’s what is clearly wrong with Duncan and Veronica’s relationship (sorry to all two of you Veronica-Duncan lovers out there): He’s still clearly a bit hung up on Meg, and she’d rather watch and quote scenes from The Big Lebowski than make out on the couch with him. Oh, and that he may or may not be sleeping with the sexy Ms. Casablancas. Seemingly the down-but-not-out Kendall took Logan’s advice to pick the richest guy in the hotel suite to be her new sugar daddy. Logan, in his so perfectly egotistical way, turned down the gig. “Bessie, when the milk stops being free, I stop drinking it.” I know he’s a total jerk, but he’s almost more fun when he is being mean to Veronica and Duncan, or teasing Ms. Mars about their dismantled relationship. But the funniest line o
Jason Dohring and Charisma Carpenter
If things are heating up in Neptune, the fictional seaside town of UPN's Veronica Mars (Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET), blame Jason Dohring and Charisma Carpenter. Dohring's Logan has been hooking up with Kendall, his best friend's sexy step mom (played by Buffy and Angel alum Carpenter), ever since Kristen Bell's Veronica gave him the boot. And in tonight's episode, their on-screen affair tak
Question: Can you give me anything on Veronica Mars?
Answer: I hear one of the reasons we won't be seeing Mama Mars this season is because there was some difficulty negotiating a deal with her portrayer, Corinne Bohrer.
Question: Guess what I heard? That some guy named Michael Ausiello might guest-star on Veronica Mars later this season! Is that true?
Answer: I don't know who your sources are, but they're good. It's true: Both sides are in advanced talks about a possible February sweeps cameo. From what I understand, a major sticking point is Ausiello's transportation from New York to the show's set in San Diego. Basically, his camp is demanding a private jet and everyone else is just laughing. A source close to Ausiello remains "optimistic that the laughing will stop and the negotiating will resume."
"I'm officially calling life unfair," teen sleuth Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) moaned after her dad lost a tight race for sheriff this month. And has she even seen the ratings? Talk about unfair.
Ironically, the two shows having the best sophomore seasons air opposite each other: the popular Lost and the equally fine but underwatched Veronica Mars (Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET on UPN). As the show's tiny but rabid fan base will tell you, this one actually gives you answers to its mysteries.
Mars' payoffs come in many ways: in the clever blend of heart-stopping whodunit and heartfelt teen soap, in the witty dialogue for characters young and adult, and in the biting depiction of class and racial tensions among the haves and have-nots of N
Question: Two weeks ago on Criminal Minds, an episode ended with Mandy Patinkin's character pumping gas in Virginia then going into the adjacent store to pay for it. He sees pictures behind the attendant, played by Lucas Haas, of various people but does not draw attention to it. The next moment Gideon leaves and the attendant follows shortly after with a shotgun pointed at Gideon's back. Will this story line come up again?
Answer: What you saw was a rerun of the pilot episode, which ended on that preposterous cliff-hanger. The situation was ludicrously resolved in the following episode (which CBS did not repeat, I guess), so it isn't likely to be revisited in future episodes. I will say, for those who keep asking what I have against it, that try as I might to make it through an episode of this show from time to time (like when Lost and/or Veronica Mars are in repeats), Criminal Minds still seems to me to be the least original, least entertaining and most exploitative of all of CBS'
Veronica MarsI know Clarence Weidman isn't technically bad, but I still wouldn't want to run into him in a dark alley. But actually I wouldn't want to run into Keith Mars in a dark alley either, if I had done anything to his daughter. He's so the dad of the year in Neptune... not that the sadly still-not-sheriff has much competition. Parental units are rapidly disappearing or becoming a thing of the past in this town. Veronica's mom skipped town, Logan's mom allegedly killed herself and his dad's in the slammer, Duncan's parents are hiding out away from the whole Lilly scandal, and now Dick and the Beav's dad has taken off to parts unknown. And while the Beav was thrown for a loop by his step mom's philandering with Logan, Dick had a totally different outlook. "Dude, my step mom? Better you
Will we ever know what they did last summer?
As TV's coolest sleuth returns in fresh episodes of UPN's Veronica Mars (Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET), fans are dying to know: What was in the note Weevil wrote Lilly last season? When will Jake Kane and Veronica's mom be back? Well, it's time to get a clue: TVGuide.com readers sent in their burning questions for the show's producers and Mars creator Rob Thomas once again provided the answers in an exclusive Q&A.
Question: Is the big murder mystery this season the bus crash or the murder Logan was accused of? Or both? — ShabaRob Thomas: We think of the bus mystery as the big mystery and "Who killed Felix?" as the secondary mystery. Veronica is much more involved in the bus-crash investigation. We wanted a secondary mystery that would play largely on other series regulars
