Almost 12 years late to the party on this one but is the rest of Veronica Mars S3 as bad as the first four episodes? If so I might just go ahead and call it. That's a lot of hours of TV I don't want to sit through if it doesn't pick up.

It does get better but season 3 isn't nearly as good as the previous two. But stick it out because the movie is incredible.

What didn't you like about it? Season 3 does have several mysteries so the next one might be more interesting for you.

It feels like "Veronica Mars: The Network Notes Season" in a desperate attempt to save the show. I have several issues with it. But one of the biggest I have, and I don't know what the general consensus on this is so I may get some poo poo for saying it, but I think Veronica and Logan are terrible together and it really doesn't play to Jason Dohring's acting strengths well at all. The problem there is that I don't think him pining over her is any better. I'm not the biggest fan of his anyway but he just doesn't work for me with Veronica and the show seems to constantly push in that direction. Not that he's worse than Bland No Personality Guy from the first two seasons or anything. Aaron Ashmore's character has been the only one for me in the series that fit well with Veronica.

Forever. It isn't that long and is really good. Don't read anything about it before watching.

Okay, then maybe don't watch the movie.

And I never got Logan and Veronica either.

I like season 3 a lot, but yeah it doesn't pick up too much. I think I remember liking the back half more than the front half? But it's nowhere near as good as seasons 1 and 2, and suffers immensely from being two different arcs split across each half of the season, rather than a full season arc like the former seasons.

It's good in the sense it's better than most shows, but not as good as VMars should be.

e: also veronica and logan is bae but to each their own ofc

e2: the whole pining after her/after eachother aspect of s3 was bothersome to me tho. mostly because the love interest they introduce in season 3 is so loving lame lmao to the point they kind of dunk on that choice in the movie.

That's pretty much exactly what it was, Veronica Mars was a UPN show and when they merged with WB to become the CW the show was the odd man out. S3 was a huge step down IMHO, you won't miss much if you bail now.
