I’m in the middle of rewatching season 1 of Veronica Mars. And DAMN it is good. Better than I remember it.
Anyhow, as with most TV shows, there are certain actors who show up as part of the opening credits, presumably the “regulars”, and others who show up from time to time as “guest stars” or “also starring” or what have you, but don’t get their names and pictures during the theme music.
So for most of season 1, the opening credits has the correct 6 biggest characters: Veronica, Duncan, Logan, Wallace, Weevil, and Keith.
But for a stretch of episodes near the beginning of the season, Sydney Tamiia Poitier (who, I assume, is Sidney Poitier’s daughter), who plays the journalism teacher, is in the opening credits. Which is just baffling, as she’s never more than an extremely minor character. She’s not even in all the episodes where she’s in the credits, and she’s rarely in more than one scene. She’s VASTLY less important than (for instance) Amanda Seyfried (who plays Lily). It’s very weird.
Who else has undeservedly gotten into the main opening credits for a show? Or who was unfairly left out?
