The Mars Effect

An episode by episode review of the hit show Veronica Mars.

The Podcasts

Well Mars Effect listeners, this is it. After almost three years, sixty-six episodes, and slightly fewer delays, we've finally reached the last episode of the Mars Effect. We'd be honored to have you join us as we talk about the DVD special features for Season 3 of Veronica Mars and wrap up our feelings on the series as a whole.

There are so many people we want to thank: the creators, cast, and crew of Veronica Mars for giving us a way to spend our time; our editor, John, without whom this labor of love would have been a lot more labor than love; Colin Bovberg, the Epic Weatherman, for our wonderfully catchy theme song; and of course you, our fans.

Without you, we never would have gotten all the way through this adventure. We owe you a debt, and we hope you've had as much fun with the Mars Effect as we have.

You know, all three of you.

Love (and we mean it),

Kim and Andrew:

Our happy hosts

Well, Effecties, this is the moment we've all been waiting for: the series finale of Veronica Mars! Will Veronica and Logan get back together? Will we learn the identity of the shadowy mastermind who's been pulling the strings in Neptune all these years? Will Kim and Andrew be able to make it through the episode without bursting into noisy tears at the thought of having to find something productive to do with their time? Well, you'll just have to listen and find out, won't you?

Love,

Kim and Andrew

P.S. We've still got one more bonus episode coming, so stay tuned!

Hey everyone, as promised Episode #64 won't be up until next week. Well...just pretend we promised that, and keep an eye on the site. We can promise, however, that this will be, at most, the second-to-last delayed episode ever! So there's that...

Love,

Kim and Andrew

Welcome, Marsologists! We've got quite a show for you today. Veronica: made a pariah by sinister conspiracy! One of her friends: accused of a crime he might or might not have committed! Neptune politics: hopelessly corrupt! Actually, that's just a normal, run-of-the-mill episode of Veronica Mars, now isn't it?

Love,

Kim and Andrew

Hey all, looks like we're going to have to delay again. Episode #63 should be up this time next week, and we swear it has nothing to do with us wanting to savor these last few episodes as much as possible before we're forced to let you all go.

Well, almost nothing.

Love,

Kim and Andrew

Howdy, Maristocrats! Today's episode's a doozy: we've got street crime, celebrities who may or may not be fakes, and yet more romantic awkwardness. And if that's not enough to whet your appetite, Veronica finally becomes a private eye for realsies! And all commented upon in our trademark lovable banter. You lucky audience, you.


Love,
Kim and Andrew

Hello again, Marslings! Sorry for the delay, but it was worth it; the focus of today's episode is chock-full of romantic awkwardness, awesome guest stars, shocking twists, and everything else we love about Veronica Mars. Plus a whole lot of the other romantic awkwardness that Kim doesn't.


On a technical note, we're sorry for all the delays lately. We're moving to a new server, so expect some more hiccups in the future, but we should still manage to limp to the finish line.


Love,
Kim and Andrew

Hey all, just letting you know that due to some technical difficulties, Episode #61 is going to be late. Stay tuned, and we promise to make it up to you!

Love,

Welcome back, Marsfolk. Submitted for your approval, the first episode of Season 4 of the Mars Effect! Okay, technically it's still Season 3, but with the season's big mystery out of the way, what's left to investigate? Well, hate crimes, underage drinking, and what the writers were thinking in their shakeup of romantic subplots, as it turns out.

Love,

Kim and Andrew

Why hello, Marsaholics. You're just in time for a humdinger of an episode: the dean's murder case ends in tragedy, the guilty party falls before the mighty sleuthing prowess of Veronica Mars, and all with less than half the fat of a season finale! Who could ask for more? Well, some sort of epilogue, perhaps...say, around five episodes worth. But what are the odds of that?

Love,

Kim and Andrew
