I felt Veronica was still Veronica in season 2. I don't think Veronica being an outcast made Veronica relatable, just Veronica being strong, independent and flawed. I don't think many people were ever the most hated person in their high school or were dating the most popular guy in school but found out he might be your brother, etc...It was Veronica herself. And than we saw that through her many relationships. Her relationship with her father, her lack of one with her mother, her relationship with various people in school, with Wallace, Mac, Lilly, Dick, Beaver, and of course Duncan and Logan.
I do think that sort of went away in season 3, when Veronica lost a lot of her identity to love interests(Logan and Piz). Her relationship with her father became non-existsent. Same with Wallace. Mac got some attention due to needing to be close to a girl with a dorm. But overall, we didn't see any of those relationships grow. We didn't see Veronica grow. So while I don't agree that second season Veronica was very different than first(she had a small, group of friends and a lot of people fearing her) but season 3 Veronica was very much a CW Girl, and that's not a compliment.
But I don't just blame in on the CW. As I said in the other thread, Rob Thomas listens way too much to the very vocal LoVe fans that he thinks that's what the whole audience wants to see. But it's not...I care about all of Veronica's relationships and I will be upset if the film is just LoVe centric.
Honestly, all go as far as to say that LoVe is a detriment to the show. This is Veroinca's story, not Logan's.
I'm not too concerned about the trailer as no one involved with the film had anything to do with the trailer. That's all the WB's decisions and we know what they prefer when promoting Veronica....
