We made it, Marshmallows! Holly and Carrie both saw the Veronica Mars movie in a theater, and we both had to drive to entirely different states to do so! We’ve got nearly two hours of analysis of the movie for you. Up first, we talk about the film’s central mystery and the new characters introduced for that story. Then we talk a bit about Logan’s character changes and the corruption of Neptune content. And last, we tackle the movie’s juiciest story: Veronica’s character arc, including her relationships with Keith, Wallace, Logan, Piz and Neptune herself. Preview: we really liked the movie, y’all. Obviously, there are movie spoilers throughout.

In Part 2 of our Movie Predictions podcast, Holly is joined by Melissa, Serrae, Kate & Tabby to talk about about all the spoilery bits we avoided in the first part: the first 8 minutes of the film, various clips, and pieces of info we’ve picked up from reading reviews, tracking the tumblr & Twitter tags and generally playing detective. To help you decide if you want to listen, you should know that the spoilers we know DO NOT reveal the solution to the mystery or anything about how the movie ends. We DO make some educated guesses, so proceed at your own risk.

We made it to the end, Marshmallows! Its both awesome and sad that we’ve reached the final two episodes of Veronica Mars. In “Weevils Wobble But They Don’t Go Down,” Veronica helps Weevil prove that he didn’t create fake Hearst ID cards. Meanwhile, Wallace gets invited into a secret society that leads us into the events of the series finale, “The Bitch is Back”: a sex tape of Veronica & Piz surfaces and the pursuit of the guilty party leads to two fights, an indictment, a breakup, and blackmail. Naturally, we spend some time talking about how we feel about this as a capper to the show. We’ll be back in two weeks with our movie prediction podcast!

Up first in this week’s episode, we’re talking about “Debasement Tapes,” where Paul Rudd guest stars, Leo’s back, and Mac builds Logan a website dedicated to asses. Next up, we’re talking about everyone’s summer plans in “I Know What You’ll Do Next Summer.” These episodes gave us a good opportunity to discuss the show’s efforts to do both mysteries and college drama, as well as air our confusion over what the writers are doing with the romances. We also spend a few minutes in the spoiler section discussing the EW cover & photoshoot.

We’re down to our last 6 episodes of Veronica Mars, and perhaps the low point of the series for your hosts. First, we have the resolution of the Dean’s murder in “Papa’s Cabin.” While its all well acted, and there’s a couple twists that make it interesting, investment in the new characters is still a problem. Next up, in “Un-American Graffiti,” everything is wrong and horrible except Wallace. How does a show make cake horrible? How?!?! Warning, there’s a lot of salty language as we discuss the hot mess of this episode.

Prepare yourselves for some ranting, mates. This week, we’re talking about hookers, trust, forgiveness and Madison Sinclair. In “Poughkeepsie, Tramps, and Thieves,” Veronica helps test-seller Max locate a girl he met who was secretly an escort hired by his roommates. In “There’s Got to Be a Morning After Pill,” Veronica helps Tim Foyle’s girlfriend, Bonnie, find out who slipped her an abortion drug. Oh, and everything to do with Veronica and Logan is heartbreaking and terrible and we don’t like watching it.
