Veronica Mars, 'Veronica Mars' (Kristen Bell)
Not only was Veronica the smartest person in Neptune, Calif., she knew it, too. The part-time private detective managed to solve her best friend's murder, figure out why a school bus full of classmates crashed, nab a serial rapist and plenty of other smaller mysteries, all while dealing with the politics of high school and college. Did we mention that she dated not one but two of the town's hottest guys?
