But there’s a twist! This time, we chose a show that one of us (Janes) knows pretty much by heart, and the other (me, Nerdy Spice) has never watched — Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Happy 25th birthday to Friends! This show first aired a full quarter-century ago, and yet given how often it seems to be quoted in pop culture, it easily could’ve been yesterday. “He’s a TRANSPONSTER!” “We were on a break!” “How you doin’?”

Welcome to Veronica Mars Season 4! Fair warning: this is not going to be some objective critique-y recap. Your recapper, who Was Watching Veronica Mars Before It Was Cool, is basically just a big old fangirl who’s excited for her favorite show to come back.
Anyway, I’m getting started on this a bit late because I decided at the last minute to marathon the entire show before watching Season 4, which I’m very glad I did: it made me realize that all the fandom complaints about season 3 were honestly kind of unfounded.

Yeah, Piz was a drag, but Veronica was in college: most people have a Piz in college. (And most people, at one point or another, are the Piz.)
