A funny thing happened on the way to the “Veronica Mars” tonight. Seriously — did anybody else notice that the episode re-used about five minutes’ worth of scenes from the end of last week’s episode to start off? Like, not even in the “Last time on ‘Veronica Mars’” way, because the episode had that, too. But roughly half the footage aired after the opening credits already aired last week.

I wonder if this happened because the CW figured most regulars wouldn’t have caught last week’s episode by virtue of it having aired on Halloween night. Odd indeed. A wholly good episode, though, déjà vu notwithstanding.

EDIT: Okay, so you know what it was? I made friends with the Veronica Mars MySpace profile. It's an official deal that the studio put up to promote the show. "Veronica" — who is probably some intern who drives a BMW — posts video clips of next week's episode. I confused the two, apparently. Whoops. Sorry, Ronnie.

    I so didn't notice. I may have to go back to my handy DVR and give it the ol' look-see.
    The Harmony-Keith thing is cute on one level because I've liked her character so far, but him getting in that accident with the music in the background was just so face-slappingly obvious. BOO.
    Have you noticed that almost every episode this season has had a Big Lebowski reference? I think the writers may be losing their collective pop-culture randomness.
