YMMV / The Dick Show

Go To

  • Acceptable Targets: Biggest one of all? Maddox. Of course.
  • Contested Sequel: The show started as this to Biggest Problem, now it's widely accepted as the show's Spiritual Successor.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The early episodes have Dick interviewing his guests for the position of co-host and being civil with Maddox. Since episode 18, the show has has focused on interviews with provocateurs and anti-censorship activists and Dick has been openly hostile to Maddox.
  • Fan Nickname: Boisterous Coconuts for Asterios
    • Masterdad for Dick's Dad
  • Fandom Rivalry: With fans of Maddox.
    • The show's fandom has a rivalry with itself, between the Facebook group and the subreddit.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Of course Show the Audio Engineer is Dick's cohost! His name is in the title of the show!
  • Grew the Beard: Asterios wasn't very popular with fans at first. Since then, he has released a Billboard-charting album (that he wrote in 24 hours), become an undefeated boxer, started a successful podcast of his own, and entered a McNuggets eating contest with a competitive eater.
  • Memetic Badass: Kian Magana for being an excellent lawyer and looking like an 80's bodybuilder.
    • Asterios also became this after his fist fight with War of the Fanboys.
    • Tommy, the kung fu master who taught Dick how to fight
    • Dick's Dad
  • The Other Darrin: Maducks, especially in "Dick on 108".
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Asterios was initially disliked by fans of Biggest Problem, due to their suspicion that he was being brought on to replace Dick. This changed almost immediately when he ended his friendship with Maddox and stated working with The Dick Show.
