“What I really hate about Veronica and Piz’s relationship: how fast that Veronica was willing to get naked for him (not sex though) while it took her years (basically) with Duncan and Logan. She didn’t even do anything with Troy and Leo. But Piz!?!? They just got together! It was like the new writers wanted to establish him as this awesome boyfriend EVER after short period of time, and that she wanted to please him when he was pouting about her FBI internship.”
“It seriously grates me when Piz was trying to pursue Veronica, EVEN when he knew that she was with Logan. I’m not even a LoVe fan; she could be with someone else like Ratner. What I don’t like about Piz that he ignored Wallace’s warning, dismissed Parker’s interest, ignored Logan’s presence, and pursued Veronica. Under all that “good guy” ensemble, lies a passive-aggressive guy who would not stop at nothing to get the girl.”
“I felt the sex in the third season was so out of character: Keith sleeping with Harmony, Mac entering the ‘Groundhog Day Of Sex’ with Max as soon as she begins dating him, and Veronica getting naked and doing whatever it was on the tape (because apparently it wasn’t sex) with Piz after they’d only been together for a while… it just didn’t seem like things any of them would do. Not to mention all this, and Wallace gets no play?!”
“I wasn’t too happy with new character Piz at first, but after the scene in “Of Vice and Men” when Piz points out there’s a girl in his bed and Veronica says “Yeeea boy!” and later when Piz asks where he’s going to sleep and Veronica responds with “If you plays your cards right… on the floor.” I just craved more Piz/Veronica interaction! Romantic, or otherwise. I just think they’re hilarious together. What they say, their facial expressions, etc. Hilarious.”
Note: She said, “Yeaah, buddy!”
‘I didn’t ship Piz and Veronica until I watched the Chris and Kristen interview on the season 3 DVD set. I guess it’s because I thought they were so cute and funny together, that when I go back and watch them as Piz and Veronica, I want them together that way too.”

“I feel like they sometimes tried too hard with finding “different names”. Maybe they were going for ‘original’ but Stosh a.k.a Piz? Really? It just feels like they were trying to hard to be ‘original’ or ‘creative’; see also Weevil, Mercer, Bronson, Duncan, Dick, Celeste, etc.”
Note: The name ‘Piz’ is a tribute to Mark Piznarski, a film director who directed first two episodes of VM in season 1. The name Duncan and Parker are tributes to Tim Duncan and Tony Parker from Spurs. The name Dick Casablancas came from the writers when they didn’t know what to call Dick at the time - because he behaved like a dick, they called him ‘Dick’ instead; Casablancas was added for the noir purpose. Many other names are either tributes/homages of something, or based on their friends/relatives’ names.

Who I’d like to meet: I think the Wiggles are really creepy and I would want to meet them just to ask WHY? But no, seriously folks, James Dean if he were alive.
“Piz is said to be in the movie and although I don’t want it, I don’t see why he would be in the movie if he isn’t Veronica’s boyfriend. He wouldn’t be at the High School reunion, and I don’t really see him remaining great friends with Wallace for all these years… so why else would he be there? I think Pizonica still exists.”
“I think most fandom misunderstood some of the critics here. Just because we like to criticize, doesn’t mean that we hate the characters or the plot or the show in general. This is not about how we hate Logan, Duncan, Piz, Veronica, or Lilly or any other character. I love those characters, but I’m disappointed with their behavior. Just because we love the characters, doesn’t mean that we need to DEFEND every aspect of their lives even their mistakes. Sometimes we acknowledge their mistakes and also point them out. Point out the characters’ bad behavior doesn’t automatically make you a hater.”
“I don’t dislike Piz because of some comparison to Logan. I dislike Piz in comparison with every other character on the show. From the minute he showed up, his sole purpose was as a plot contrivance to be V’s future boyfriend. Sure he’s light and sweet and vanilla, and that would be fine and dandy except he’s a starring character on a noir show where no one else, no matter how good, is that one dimensional. Veronica Mars’ characters have always shown themselves to be complex and served their own storytelling purpose, Piz did not and this gravely disappointed me.”
