*Finally* finished Season One of The Tick.

It was good!  The second half of The Tick was a little smoother than the first half, and I liked the first half just fine.  I also liked everybody’s character development and how the show never devolved into self-parody.  The message was, I think, “You never know when somebody will turn out to be awesome.”  I even ended up liking the guy who was kind of a jerk*, because the thing was he knew that he was kind of a jerk, and he was actually doing a better job than I credited him for in trying not to be. (more…)

God, the second half of the Tick can’t come soon enough.

February 23rd, and I’m counting the days at this point.  Let us say that I grow less impressed with reboots every year, so having one that I actually want to watch is refreshing.  Or perhaps the proper term there is ‘a lifeline.’ Although possibly The Tick merely torments me, instead.  The reboots don’t have to suck, after all. They just almost always do.  I find this distressing.

PS: It was either this or a rant about how certain shows drew their appeal from the craptastic eras in which they first appeared.  I know where those rants lead, and the Internet has been exasperating enough this weekend.

Amazon approves Season 2 of The Tick.

All official-like: “The creator of the series, Ben Edlund (FireflySupernaturalGotham), will return along with leads Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy) as The Tick and Griffin Newman (Search Party) as Arthur, with additional casting to be announced.” Ten new episodes, filming starts this year, and the show will be shown next year on Amazon Prime (obviously). And, of course, this is unsurprising: lots of people loved the Tick when it came out last year. I ended up getting sucked into it myself, and I plan to combine the second part of Season 1 with my exercise regimen when it comes out on February 23rd*.  So, really: no-brainer.

I haven’t decided whether I want to see the weirder superheroes and supervillains, though.  Well. “Weird” is probably relative, here.

*Which means that I have to restart my exercise regimen.  Which I really need to do.  Fortunately, at least I have tons of TV shows to watch while doing it.

The new ‘The Tick’ trailer.

Complete with a certain tease at the very, very end.

I think that we’re not going to get American Maid or Die Fledermaus in Part Two of The Tick. Or the more surreal of the Tick’s enemies.  I don’t remember if anything happened to the Moon yet in this series, but if it didn’t, it probably won’t.  All of which is fine, if the second part is as good as the first.

SPOON! …The Tick returns in February.

February 23rd, 2018, to be exact.  I ended up binge-watching the first half of The Tick, after all; or at least I slammed two or three episodes at a time.  I’m probably going to watch the second half in one fell swoop, because I really really want to see evil impact Destiny, and bounce.  I am adamant about this, in fact.  There has to be a particular payoff, and those of you who have watched the first half probably can guess what I think that it should be.  While embracing the superior ethos and moral sense of the Tick himself, of course*.

Can’t wait.

*We are not really required to take the Tick entirely seriously, but nothing I’ve seen so far suggests that we are to take him lightly.

I am NOT going to stay up and binge-watch The Tick.

Even if it’s now streaming on Amazon.  I am NOT.  I am going to bed.

Whoa. The new live-action Tick… might not… suck?

Huh.  I’ve been, you know, assuming that it’s gonna suck, because let’s face it; it’s hard for our culture to do the Tick properly.  And yet; and, yet.  This is not a bad trailer. It promises a certain level of respect for the intellectual property.

The Tick will be released to Amazon Prime members on August 25th.
