Veronica a student who progresses from high school to college while moonlighting as a private investigator under the tutelage of her detective father. While working on Piz';s case, Veronica learns that the campus serial rapist has struck again. Meanwhile, Keith runs into trouble while transporting a recently released convict across the country to reunite him with Kendall.
For all of its wondrous charms and agreeable reasons for watching, the fact is that after Bell and a smattering of quote-worthy dialogue, Veronica Mars probably doesn't have enough dramatic heft to break out of its own cult status.
Perhaps this is the real mystery of Veronica Mars: The mystery of why a show as well written as this one needs to beg for an audience supposedly starved of quality entertainment. A mystery likely to remain unsolved.
