Last’s night’s episode of VERONICA MARS was a nice return to form for Veronica and Co. It’s about time that the ‘rape mystery’ played a pivotal role in the episode, rather than just being tacked onto the final few minutes. So here it goes, the TV addict’s Good, Bad and Stunt Casting.
THE GOOD: The delightful Keith Mars (Enrico Colantoni) finally had a decent story-line, as he was hired by Harmony (better known as his co-star on JUST SHOOT ME, Laura San Giacoma) to discover if her husband was cheating. While Harmony’s husband was surprisingly failthful, I suspect that Harmony may end up cheating on her husband — with surprise surprise, the man she hired to investigate her husband (yes, in case you didn’t follow that, I’m talking about Kieth). The two actors once again showed off their fantastic chemistry and reminded my why I enjoyed JUST SHOOT ME all those years ago.
And speaking of Enrico Colantoni, check back early next week for theTVaddict.com’s exclusive interview with television’s best single dad, Enrico Colantoni.
THE BAD: Aside from the new theme song, which I honestly believe is the worst theme song on network TV, I’m quite frankly annoyed that we never get to see any of the ‘regular’ cast members. Why have Mac, Piz, Wallace and Weevil in the opening credits if they’re never going to be used? While I understand that being in the ‘opening credits’ doesn’t exactly mean you’re signed on for all twenty-two episodes — in the days of 90210 and Melrose Place, if you were in the opening, you generally were guaranteed to appear in the majority of the episodes. Why make actors regulars if they’re not going to be use, well, regularly?
THE STUNT CASTING: Matt Czuchry’s story-line was pretty weak. Did anyone buy the fact that fresh faced Logan Huntsburger was actually a Vanity Fair reporter? This TV addict bought it as much as he believed Denise Richards was Nuclear Scientist in Bond’s THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH.
