Bring Backup is a weekly rewatch podcast about California teen noir Veronica Mars. Longtime Veronica Mars fans Sam NeSmith and Meg Lindsay will be watching and discussing every episode of the show, beginning with the mystery that started it all, the murder of Veronica’s best friend Lilly Kane.
3.11 Poughkeepsie, Tramps, and Thieves
This week we’ve got Season 3, Episode 11, Poughkeepsie, Tramps, and Thieves, in which a mystery involving a prostitute makes Veronica lose her entire mind, and makes Sam consider her own feminist journey!
3.10 Show Me the Monkey
We're back with Season 3, Episode 10, where the mystery is about a monkey and is very boring, and all we really care about is that Mac is back!
3.09 Spit and Eggs
FINALLY the end of this first mystery of season 3. We can move onto just some good old-fashioned murder. This episode has Sam perhaps coming around to Piz? And some great Mac lines.
Oh, and Sam was right ab the Mercer and Moe thing! The prisoner/guard relationship... We'll cover that next week in an update, but we make a new revelation after recording.
Lord of the Pi's
We're back with Season 3, Episode 8, Lord of the Pi's! In which Sam hates everything and convinces Meg to hate it all too!
3.07 Of Vice and Men
Today, we are discussing Season 3, Episode 7, Of Vice and Men. And despite the mystery of the week being a little flat - the case of the missing sully - this episode features one of the more unforgettable scenes of the entire series.
I can summon the feeling of watching drugged Veronica stumble around a parking garage in my sleep. This one keeps me awake at night, for sure.
3.06 Hi, Infidelity
Oh no this one has Keith Mars making BAD DECISIONS!
This podcast has gotten me through this pandemic, truly. I get so excited when I see a new show drops. They have a great balance of loving the show while looking at it critically from a 2021 perspective.
Best VM podcast
These ladies do it perfectly. I listen to another VM podcast where the hosts are actually getting paid/do it for a job and they don’t even come close to Bring Backup. I’m going to be genuinely sad when the finish up the third season. I hope that whatever they do next is something I watch!
podcast where people who think they are good at talking can rarely get through a sentence without saying “like” one to several times.
Constant giggling followed by explosions of raucous laughter never gets old, either.
