If you haven’t forked over your $4 a month for SeeSo, you’ve likely missed Bajillion Dollar Propertie$. For those who aren’t caught up, Paul F. Tompkins stars as the aloof, navel-gazing Dean Rosedragon, founder of Platinum Realty and hands-off manager of a cutthroat pack of emotionally bankrupt realtors in the upscale Los Angeles market. There’s no low they won’t stoop to, and no bus they won’t throw each other under, to close the big sale and get their commission.
Season two looks to be more of the same, which is fine, because if you’ve got a solid premise and a capable cast, why mess with success? The trailer does boast a couple of changes, including the appearance of Tompkins in the title’s lineup of realtors, hopefully suggesting that there will be more of Dean and his atrocious ascots. And then there’s Glenn (Tim Baltz) who was promoted from numbskull-bastard office manager to numbskull-fauxhawked partner of Platinum Realty. While power is going to his empty head, the other realtors are up to their old tricks. Andrew and Baxter get a little too into a property’s Slip N Slide, Amir doesn’t understand how a metaphorical office chess game works, Victoria demonstrates her ability to “Rain Man” a pile of checks, and Chelsea is just glad to be trending on social media. Guest stars for season two include Nick Kroll, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Patton Oswalt, and Zach Galifianakis.
It’s Dean himself who sums up the state of Platinum Realty best in an address to the office: “You are all in various stages of hideous moral decay.” Bajillion Dollar Propertie$ returns to flood Seeso’s market with incompetent, overpriced realtors on October 13.
