So ... I hope everyone's been keeping up with the schedule.  I have to admit that last week I was four episodes behind and watched disk two of season one in one go, and that I just watched "Drinking the Kool-Aid" tonight.

I just thought I'd make a few observations...

  1. The way Neptune appears to be a real high school.  The recurring characters are pretty consistent, and it seems like the supporting students appear in at least two episodes throughout the course of the first two seasons.  For example, Dick and Beaver -- currently just members of Logan's group, but their roles expand as the season continues (the last episode of season one, if you weren't aware or haven't noticed, is called "Leave it to Beaver", which implies that he does something important...)  Shelly Pomroy hosted the party where Veronica lost her virginity, and she's the student who gets in a tizzy about Pirate Points in "Return of the Kane".  Not to mention a few other students that have just made their first appearances, such as Mac, Meg, and Meg's sister Lizzie.  I love that we don't meet neccessarily different students in each episode, but they might be members of certain cliques that we just haven't seen before
  2. "Drinking the Kool-Aid" seems to complete an arc concerning Veronica's parents, who they were before Veronica came around, and it questions her paternity.  Veronica first notices that her mother, Lianne, knew Duncan's father in high school.  And they were prom king and queen.  And they were a couple.  Abel Koontz tells her that she's Jake Kane's father.  Veronica ends this part of the arc by sending away for a paternity test and deciding to destroy the results, but it's not the end of this story, just a break as the second part of the season begins.
My very favorite episode, "An Echolls Family Christmas", is scheduled for this week, and you should watch it for the following reasons: my birthday is Friday, it has Weevil in it, and it turns out that Veronica can play poker like one of the guys.

Yes to everything you said. I love the consistency, the forethought, the attention to detail in this show. LOVELOVELOVE.

I feel like a terrible person for missing the reminder post last week, but I was both out of town and sick as a dog. :P But I'M SO EXCITED WE'RE ON "AN ECHOLLS FAMILY CHRISTMAS."

I completely agree. It's filled with drama, yet still has the authenticity of being a REAL show with their large supporting cast that makes multiple appearances. (I love seeing the bitchy 09'er chicks!) Troy even comes back in the third season!

My fav. part though would have to be V's wardrobe. She is unconventional, but practical. She wears COLOUR instead of some stereotypes of isolated teens and she wears the same items multiple times. By the end of this season, I hope to make a picspam of every outfit that is repeated. BECAUSE NOT EVERYONE'S CLOSET IS AS BIG AS A PLANET/CHER HOROWITZ'S)
