Spoon! The Tick gets a release date for its second season!

Oh happy day! I have loved  Amazon Prime's new THE TICK reboot! It's funny, it's heart-breaking, it's action-packed. The thing that's really great about it though, is it takes its characters seriously. Even The Tick. But it, conversely, also doesn't downplay the absurdity of the idea of a world where superheroes exist (I love the fact there's...

The Tick creator says there's a 5-year arc planned for the Amazon series

I've loved every iteration of THE TICK, from the comic-book, to the animated series, to the first live-action show, to now the recent Amazon Prime series. While certain things change - such as tone and gore - certain things stay the same. One of those constants is The Tick's lack of backstory - save that he came from a mental institution. However, according to creator (and show's...

More The Tick clips show off why this show is going to be awesome

Other than the costume (which is fine, save the obvious fabric showing underneath and the clunky plastic muscles), I've been loving everything I've been seeing from the new live-action THE TICK reboot from Amazon Prime. While no Patrick Warburton , Peter Serafinowicz acquits himself well in the role, and I actually prefer Griffin Newman's more human take on Arthur. Furthermore, the...

Arthur and Miss Lint have a confrontation in The Tick clip

I've said many times I'm excited for the upcoming THE TICK series, and this clip helps illustrate why. If you were to watch this clip out of context, for the first half-to-three-fourths of it, you'd think it was just a regular superhero/thriller series. The lighting, music, and tone doesn't tip you off immediately. It isn't until we notice the lint floating around Miss Lint, or the fact...

The Tick battles assassin Overkill in official clip

I love THE TICK, and I especially loved the new pilot from Amazon Studios. I've said it before, but what I enjoyed about that pilot was the more serious tone and the emotional sincerity (especially when it comes to Arthur) that hasn't been a part of any of the other incarnations. It was even better that The Tick remained the same big doofus he's always been. That tonal dissonance - as it...

New The Tick promo shows off some big blue derring-do!

SPOOOOOOON!!!!!!! To say that I'm excited for the upcoming THE TICK Amazon Prime series is an understatement. I loved THE TICK since I was a kid watching the old FOX cartoon show, I loved the original live-action Patrick Warburton one, and I of course loved the recent pilot with Peter Serafinowicz! My favorite part was that the tone was different - instead of super cartoony, or sitcomy,...

Fan videos for #TickSaveMyCity sent to the producer and star of The Tick

I've loved what Amazon has done with the new live-action THE TICK. While the cartoon was a crazy lampoon of the ridiculousness of comics, and the 2001 Patrick Warburton series was basically SEINFELD with capes, this new version has the eponymous crazy blue strongman plopped in the middle of a gritty Netflix-style show - and hilarity ensues. Now, each iteration of THE TICK is great...

Keen! Amazon's live-action The Tick gets a much-needed costume revamp

THE TICK was required Saturday morning viewing in my youth, back when Saturday Mornings were a thing. It was basically this and MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 for me. I even loved the original (unfortunately short-lived) live-action version with Patrick Warburton as the eponymous superhero. So it's awesome to see Tick back in action, with Amazon Studios giving the new iteration...
