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.
Opening weekend Cate and I went down to our fave NYC theatre (reclining seats yay) and took in DC’s latest offering to the Holy Trinity, Wonder Woman. I do not exaggerate when I say this film was DECADES in the making. For some reason The Powers That Be just didn’t believe a female led superhero movie could make money. After all Hollywood is first and foremost a business, and making money is the primary goal. Toss in the fact that this installment of Wonder Woman had a Female director, something not usually heard of for a big budget movie, let alone a big budget action movie, and there was A LOT riding on the success of this movie.
