First Looks: Amazon Prime’s The Tick

First Looks: Amazon Prime’s The Tick

Who doesn’t love a good Superhero? Back in the 90’s there was a very interesting animated cartoon superhero known as The Tick. The Tick, and his nebbishie sidekick Arthur (who was voiced by both Rob Paulsen AND Micky Dolenz).

The show, which was based of a comic series with the same name, was about an invulnerable, somewhat dim, superhero who protects The City from all manner of evil-doers,  and it ran for three seasons.

In 2001 The Tick got a live action show, also airing on FOX, for one nine episode season, Starring Patrick Warburton as the titular character.

Now, Amazon Prime has decided revive the show, witha brand new live action series. The New series, starring Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick and Griffin Newman as Arthur released it’s pilot last summer, and now have finally released a trail for the upcoming 1st season.

The Tick debuts on Amazon Prime Friday, August 25th 2017

My Thoughts:

  • I really enjoy the Arthur’s “teched out” new moth suit
  • I can’t believe The Tick is played by the same guy who played Denarian Saal in Guardians of the Galaxy! I keep hearing “I can’t believe I’m taking orders from a hamster.” in my head.
  • Jackie Earle Hurley looks EPIC as The Terror

Full disclosure, I already watched the pilot. It was pretty good, so I am toats on board to watch the series. WHat about you guys? Are you gonna go check it out? Or does this completely taint you childhood memories?  Hit up the comments and let us know!
