DVD

Back when I watched the first season of Veronica Mars, my reaction to it was somewhat apathetic. Generally speaking, I found the plotting inconsistent, the characters generic and at times grating, and the whole Southern California high school/beach vibe rather off-putting. This afternoon, however, I brought out the DVDs again and made my way through the first disc, encompassing the first four episodes. I actually found myself enjoying it a lot more this time round. Perhaps it’s because, like so many mystery-oriented stories, it’s fun to go back and spot all the clues while being aware of the outcome, but the plotting strikes me as being considerably more accomplished than I first realised. You can definitely see the seeds being laid for the various mini-mysteries that will be solved over the course of the season, as well as the big ones that aren’t paid off until the final episode.

Suffice to say, I think I may have misjudged this show. Indeed, I’ve ordered the recently-released DVD set of Season 2 from MovieTyme. I haven’t seen any of this season, so it should be interesting.
