  • Ryan Hansen persuades the CW suits to let him make a pilot for a Dick Casablancas spin-off show.
  • So then he has to persuade the Veronica Mars actors to come back to reprise their roles...
  • And then they all film Private Dick! Wherein Dick Casablancas is a private detective investigating the murders of several beloved Veronica Mars characters.
  • There are masks! Punchings! Sexytimes! Pull-ups! Ghost Cassidy Casablancas! And bikinis as funeral-wear!
  • And a catchphrase that never really takes off?
  • Oh and a big dance number. Twice.

Join Jenny Owen Youngs and Helen Zaltzman to investigate the official but non-canonical Veronica Mars spin-off web series Play It Again, Dick, and contemplate such mysteries as why Madison Sinclair is the MVP of the piece, how there is so much filler in such a short show, and why the CW didn't commission a Wallace'n'cookies-focused spin-off The Great Wallace Bake-Off.

Content note: Play It Again, Dick contains racist jokes and references to rape and suicide.
