Moonlight 1.01

Look, this is a new series with a vampire detective, so I hereby promise that there will be many and varied references to how much I miss Angel[1] but it does have Jason Dohring, so I’m keeping an open mind. As always with my telly recaps, beware of spoilers, cause they won’t be hidden.

Veronica Mars 1.02 – Credit Where Credit’s Due

We open with Wallace and Veronica discovering how boring their lives are, as they have no plans for the weekend. Wallace shows Veronica a flier about a party, which he vaguely wants to crash. But it is in code, the 09-ers don’t ant undesirables at their beach party.

At aforementioned party we see Duncan and a stranger chatting in a car before meeting the locals. Stranger turns out to be called Troy. And look, there is Paris Hilton. Would is be very strange of me to admit that I didn’t know who she was. I mean I recognise the name, but I’ve never seen her in anything before. Anyways, the party gets interrupted by our very old bald greaser who thinks that the 09-ers really shouldn’t be on his beach. We get a nice little slanging match between Logan and Weevil, but before things progress any further the sheriff turns up and cares everyone away. He then tells his deputy to pick up the kegs, all the boys can come to his this time. He really isn’t a good cop it he? But he is fun.
