Rewatched two more Veronica Mars
eps, Girl Next Door
and Like a Virgin
. IMo, they are 'lesser' VM eps, but nontheless, I like both of them.
In Girl Next Door
, while the B-plot of Logan and Weevil is more interesting, I am also in the minority who likes the A-plot. I think what we are confronted with (again) in this ep, and what Veronica needs to learn and is learning throughout the seasons, is that first initial instinctual impressions don't always work. Andre, it turns out, is a wonderful boyfriend, willing to raise another man's baby, accepting of Sara's sudden flights as just 'her thing' and trying to do the right thing in letting her parents know she is pregnant. He is cranky with Veronica, but evaluated in light of what we find out, it makes sense: this random neighbor girl is butting into his private life. And we also learn that Veronica (understandably) would be almost always be on the women's side of any argument (she suspects the bf of malarkey but not the girl of flakiness). And of course, we also learn that sometimes V bites off more than she can chew. ( Girl Next Door. Of Weevil and Logan ) Like a Virgin
is a sweet fun ep. This is where we first meet Mac (yay! Blue hair! Moxie!) and Meg (yes, cartoon birds did braid your hair. I miss you. *sniff*). And yet another person (in this case Meg) tells V that revenge isn't the way to go. It's something V is learning, however slowly. And then there is the not-sweet-fun at all scene with Abel, and V thinks she is not Keith's daughter (what an interesting callback to the previous ep and her comment about how no man would want to raise another guy's child) and she cries in the car and I want to cry with her.
In other news, I've been listening to everyone's music recs and they are excellent. I must admit, I've fallen in love with The Perishers
. I dled "Sway" because of that gorgeous VM scene and after that I decided to look for more of their stuff and whoa...they are amazing. Also, oddly enough, if Sarah McLaughlin songs always seem to be applicable to Buffy for me, and Dido to Roswell, I think a lot of The Perishers songs are applicable to VM.
Also, I finally read the lyrics to Sway and I Can Hear the Bells and how freaking appropriate. ( Sway lyrics )( I can hear the bells lyrics )
