For two days now I’ve been trying to wrap my head around how to properly define season three of VERONICA MARS. Last night I had an epiphany of sorts. Thus far, season three of VERONICA MARS has essentially been ‘VERONICA MARS: FOR DUMMIES’.
Why for dummies you ask? I’ll tell you. In order to attract the largest amount of new viewers (and fans of the GILMORE GIRLS), the show has had to simplify its storytelling. This season, viewers don’t need to know anything about the show, it’s history or its characters. They can just tune in, watch and enjoy. No thinking required. Logic dictates that more viewers equals a longer run. And if the first third of VERONICA MARS’ new season has to pander to the MARS neophytes to ensure we see a fourth season, I’m okay with that.
So fellow TV Addicts, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon. VERONICA MARS is easier to follow then ever before. If you’re a fan of CSI or LAW & ORDER, you’ve already proven you have the mental aptitude to enjoy Neptune’s* coolest detective.
* Neptune is the town where the show takes place.
