Veronica, I really like you, but I have some concerns about where we're headed...

A Letter to Veronica Mars

Dear Veronica Mars,

I'm a huge fan. Really, I am. I feel horrible about you and Logan. I totally get why you did it, but for some reason I'm still pulling for the two of you crazy kids to get together.

I am a little worried though about how college life is affecting you and your detective skills. I totally knew who killed Dean O'Dell weeks ago and for you to only figure it out at 9:55 yesterday was quite disturbing. I thought we'd agreed that the TA was sketchy — what happened there, did you forget?

Oh, and I'm really sorry about your teacher-mentor guy pleading guilty to manslaughter, that has to just be a kick in gut.

On the upside, you dad being the acting sheriff is pretty sweet. But, on that note, I'm not really comfortable with you stealing files and stuff from his office. Or, for that matter, you stealing stuff from other places and giving it to him. That's not going to go well down the line, I can just tell. Surely someone is going to be able to get out of jail time because laws were broken by the sheriff's daughter in an attempt to obtain evidence. Doesn't that worry you? I know that you only want good things for Pops, and surely this can negatively impact his career.

There's just one other thing that troubles me. You always come up with these fantastic old school references to '80s (and before) pop culture. Surely you're too young for such stuff? It's not that I don't appreciate the references, I really, really do, it just seems odd that you know so many. What did you do, go to pop culture night school in between regular school and moonlighting as a detective? More power to you though.

I'm told you're not going to be around for a few weeks, and I'm really going to miss you. I think that everything you're doing in the name of "Girl Power" is just plain fantastic.

Listen, V, just make me one promise: tell me you'll be back next year. I've heard rumors you're going away, and that not everyone is a huge fan of yours. Say it ain't so.

Say it ain't so.

Your friend forever,

TV and Film Guy
