“From what I saw on-screen, I have a hard time believing Rob Thomas was invested in the Duncan character. My crazy theory is that as early as during casting, when the network rejected Jason Dohring in the Duncan Kane role for not being pretty enough, Rob Thomas (wily guy) course-adjusted the show to maximize Logan’s role while diminishing Duncan’s, and we see this as early as the pilot.”
“Everyone’s hair was so terrible in season 1: Logan had this blond streak, Veronica had a choppy layered short hair, Casey had a bowl cut, Wallace had comb coils, Sean had this… I think a bowlcut too… Justin had spiky blond streaks, Dick and his weird surfer style, Madison with the bottle blonde, and Mac with the colorful hair.”
PEOPLE, WATCH THE ORIGINAL PILOT INSTEAD THE ONE AIRED ON SOAPNET OR THE WB OR ITUNES. IT’S TOTALLY DIFFERENT AT THE BEGINNING. IT’S ROB THOMAS’ ORIGINAL NOIR VISION INSTEAD THE NETWORK HIGH SCHOOL STYLE.
IT’S DARK AND NOIR AND FOR ADULTS.
“It’s interesting that Logan gets most of the blame in this fandom for destroying Veronica’s sexual reputation. Her sexual identity wasn’t tarnished until Shelly’s where many people saw her come-on-to/make-out-with other people’s boyfriend’s (albeit drugged). Logan’s anger towards V for “betraying the Kane’s” seems to be his own, but the slut shaming seems to be a product of her drugged behavior on display compounded by Duncan’s silence. No one knew why Duncan broke up with her and I think everyone, including Logan, took his lack of defense for her at face value.”
“I think it’s strange that so many people take Weevil warning Logan, “if you think you’re going to lay a hand on (Veronica) the way you did Lilly,” as Weevil thinking Logan physically abused Lilly. I always felt like Weevil was saying don’t lay a sexual hand on her, not an abusive one.”
“I hope Jake Kane was decent enough to pay for Hamilton Cho’s college tuition even though Sabrina and her mom refused to let him share the Kane Scholarship. He was willing to pay for both students anyway. It makes me sad that we never see one decent person get the Kane Scholarship—the first season it was Sabrina “the teenage witch” and the next it was the snobby entitled Angie Dahl—two kids whose parents could have afforded to send them anywhere they wanted anyway.”
“I know he was a one-off character, but I thought Hamilton Cho [Leonard Wu] had the potential to be a great character. Man, I thought he had some serious chemistry with Veronica, and I liked we got to see a different side of her with him. I really enjoyed the episode he was in and his story [Kanes and Abel’s].”
“The guest stars that appeared in the show truly amazed me. I recently watched all 3 seasons online and it gave me such a warm feeling as I saw so many actors I recognised from other things I’ve watched since VM finished. I have to say I felt like a very proud marshmallow when I saw Leo (Max Greenfield) on New Girl.”
“It’s too bad that they didn’t have a storyline for Mallory. Maybe she wasn’t as interesting as Mr. Rooks, or other teachers who were basically crooked and bad. In a way, she was Piz. Boring. They should give her a bad teacher role, because I think she would be amazing. Paired her with Don Lamb, for example.”
