Veronica Mars 3x08 - Lord of the Pi's (Spoilers)

Decent episode. Not a lot of movement in the overall arc, but found it quite funny. There seem to be lots of little nods in this series, and the majority of those are Big Lebowski references. There was a whole section in this episode with parallels to The Big Lebowski!

I think Dick Casablancas should be in this more too, cracks me up!

This is more like it, Keith was on perfect form.

.

Still no closer to who did the rapes though.

Rt has stated that Veronica becoming a bitch is a deliberate arc of the writers. the only problem is that its making the show less pleasent to watch and is reflected in the drop of in viewers and retention form GG. This is exactly the same problem that JW created in S6/7 Buffy with her story of depression and rejection of her friends.

It might give a dramatic emotional arc to a season it does not make for pleasent viewing, it is not an apporach that is going to induce new viewers to watch a selfish 19yr old treat her bf like an unimportant bit on the side and to continually snark on everybody else.

This program is just getting less interesting for me to watch. Ironically House is going the same route by making the lead even more unpleasent and selfish.

Well I guess Logan is going to dump Veronica soon, which no doubt will lead to a repeat of Veronica with a dull normal Bf in Piz. The same boring disaster that was VD in the first half of S2.

Even Wallace has been relegated from BFF to numbers guy.

I'm going to assume that the sexual assault on Chip most likely by the femnazis will be spypenned.

Whilst Claires rape was faked, and possibly Nancys it seems inconcievable that Parker faked hers. Also that AD girl faked hers. So there were at least 2 probably 3 real rapes.

@Ninjakettle if you add spoiler to the title we wont need to utilise spoiler tags within our posts.

I can't remember the episode timings for the three arcs. Has the rape arc been concluded with this episode, or does it continue? I just can't tell if the underwhelming revelation at the end of this episode is the final answer, or just another theory?

It was Marti Noxon (IRC) that was responsible for the depressing season 6. I do agree V is becoming a bit of a cow. Logan has been a wuss, hopefully he will find his balls

Worst easter egg hunt ever
