Regarding Duncan Kane.

The interview with Teddy Dunn explained a lot.  It seems to me that if there ever was a clear vision for the character of Duncan Kane, it was subsequently dissected, amputated and stitched back together with different limbs, until eventually it was unrecognizable to the original.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again.  I liked Duncan, in the first few episodes.  I mean come on, are you kidding me?  I’m a sucker for a broken character, and he was that in spades.  And then there was this mystery- why did he end things with Veronica so abruptly? Did he still care about her?  Had he been involved in his sister’s murder? What was wrong with him?

But all of that just… evaporated. 

Their mistake was this unrelenting insistence that Duncan was a great guy.  Okay, hey, maybe he was a great guy, once upon a time.  But tragedy changes people; making terrible and wrong decisions changes people.  What they needed to do was embrace Duncan’s darkness and move forward.  Possibly even find a way to redeem him.  Not whitewash all of his sins and play it like a Colgate commercial.

Agree, 100%. Dark Duncan may have worked. Great guy Duncan, not in a million.

I would have settled for “sort of complicated Duncan.” Instead of “unaffected by anything” Duncan. *sigh*

yes hello i have some questions for whichever veronica mars writer came up with the name “stosh piznarski”

Piznarski is a homage for Mark Piznarski, who directed the first two episodes in season 1. Rob likes to name his characters with his favorite people, like Duncan and Parker came from Tim Duncan and Tony Parker (Spurs)

But, honestly, I have no idea how RT thought people were ever going to really get into a character named Piz. Its a terrible nickname and sounds like Piss and they were just ASKING for horribly jokes to be made.

Considering he warned Chris that fans were going to hate him, I don’t REALLY think he ever intended for people to truly like Piz.

Its bizarre, because I was actually *in* a panel where Rob & Chris talked about how they knew the fans were going to hate Piz, but other times, he play dumbs. You can’t have it both ways, dude.

I guess the real answer is that he always knew people were going to hate Piz, but doesn’t understand why, hence his continued belief that the only reason people don’t like Piz is “omg, Logan <3 <3 <3”
