Written by Laura Hickey

I had seenrepparttar commercials on UPN for Veronica Mars but didn’t check it out when it first started airing. One night while channel surfing I foundrepparttar 139148 show on another network and gave it a try. I’d become immersed in this Veronica character. Seeing a female character that would stand up for not only herself but others was refreshing. Not to mention she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. Her father owns his own PI called Mars Investigation. Notrepparttar 139149 most jazzy name but it works. For several episodes Veronica’s mother has been MIA. Recently we’ve found out that Veronica’s father isn’t her biological father. Oh and Veronica’s boyfriend atrepparttar 139150 beginning ofrepparttar 139151 season ends up being her half brother. But then inrepparttar 139152 finale season episode we find out that her father really is her biological father. Whew!
