      The second episode of the first season of Veronica Mars is a crucial one is setting up the relationship between Veronica Mars and Weevil, the leader of the PCH motorcycle gang. This relationship establishes one of the the essential themes of the show: class. Weevil and Veronica areoutsiders because they exist on the poorer side of the spectrum in rich Neptune, California.

      Weevil and Veronica are different in so many ways, but in many ways very fundamentally similiar. In that they share the same class,


      yes, but also in that they understand the seedier aspects of life, perhaps because of their socioeconomic statuses. Veronica is more well off than Weevil, but the difference between upper and lower middle class is so wide in Neptune, that they might as well be living in the same neighborhood.

      This episode also introduces Troy Vandegraff, one of what will become many suitors for Veronica. Out of all of them, he is my least favorite so his appearance in this and the next couple of ...


      • episodes are not quite as provocative.

        One of my least favorite things about the show, and it’s probably less the show’s fault than it was UPN’s, was how much stunt casting takes place. This episode probably offends most egregiously, with Paris Hilton playing Logan Echolls’ snobby girlfriend. Appropriate characterization, yes, but the acting was horrible and she looked bored and uncomfortable. And I felt uncomfortable watching her, she totally took the action outside of its milieu and turned it into something trite.

        As the second

        episode, it gets more into establishing the flow of the show. There are things that happen towards solving the big mystery and little mysteries for Veronica to solve in each episode. This mystery was one of my favorite ones because, again, it really fleshed out the difference between the 09-ers (the rich kids who live in the 90909 zip code) and, well, everyone else.

        Overall, a strong entry into the series. And, luckily, we will never see Paris Hilton again for the rest of the series.
