This makes me very sad because two of these episodes with such easily-mocked dialogue were written by Rob Thomas, a.k.a. personally beloved Veronica Mars writer.
Also, a quick note:
The quality of filming of the first few episodes is horrific. Between the glaring positioning discrepancies between shots, visible microphones, and clearly audible shuffling of the crew during quiet heart-to-hearts, Dawson could actually do a better job.
I leave you with this fantastic quote.
"Have you realized it's been nearly two weeks since Jen and I broke up, and not once has she made an effort to get together?"
