A teaser for the Dick Casablancas Veronica Mars spin-off was released a few days ago, and while it was exciting, there was some speculation that the ol’ Dickmeister might not be able to carry his own show. Sure, he can carry a 15 second teaser (with help from Kristen Bell) but can a whole season of full length episodes (which in internet terms means eight 10-minute installments) really work?
Well, a new, longer trailer is here to prove you naysayers wrong. Of COURSE Ryan Hansen can provide more than 15 seconds of hilarious content. Here’s A WHOLE MINUTE. And while Hansen isn’t actually IN most of this Newsroom trailer parody, the glimpses of a script written by this meta TV version of himself for his spin-off within a spin-off is spot on. A few gems that I really hope make it into the actual show:
“Dick (V.O.): This funeral is turning into a real sausage fest.”
“Wallace: Honky say what?”
“Dick: Casablanca’s first law… Every action has an equal and opposite Dick action!”
And here’s the show’s official poster.
I hear what a lot of you have been saying whenever we bring up this show. I know I should absolutely despise rape-friendly Dick, but I don’t. And I honestly have no idea why. But I think the answer is somewhere in that poster.
