The article doesn't contain much new material; instead it links to two previous positive reviews of the show. The second in particular focuses on comparisons to Buffy:
'Buffy' was a very different show from 'Veronica Mars,' with a markedly more fatalistic tone and an almost operatic sense of tragedy. But it did lay some crucial groundwork for 'Veronica Mars': While both shows pretend to be geared toward a teen audience, it's really adults, well past the trauma of teenagerhood but still all too aware of how much it can sting, that gravitate toward them.
