Review: Veronica Mars 101 – 105

A new series on the UPN, and hence the title “The new Buffy” has been born. This show however, leans more towards Alias, with the title role (played by new comer Kristen Bell) having similar facial features, and also featuring in the series are undercover props, accents, and other spy techniques. There’s even a main mystery story arch threaded throughout the whole season. Character design is also similar, with the strange daughter/father relationship and a missing mother. So basically, with the CIA/Rambaldi subjects replaced by high school subjects, it’s a junior version of Alias. After 5 episodes, there’s reasonable depth, and the entertainment value is just above ordinary. If they keep improving, it might be a keeper, but reaching Alias’ level of quality takes a whole lot more.

    That would be Buffy the Vampire Slayer of course, where she spent her last two years on the UPN tv network.

    I like Veronica Mars too. I enjoyed your post/review of the show. I think that the “strange” father-daughter relationship is what really makes the show great.
