Amazon Orders a Full Season of Cult Favorite Superhero Show The Tick

//cdn.themis-media.com/media/global/images/library/deriv/1352/1352456.jpgThe Tick is getting a full season on Amazon Video.

A little over a month ago, Amazon ran the pilot episode of the new take on The Tick. Today, Deadline [http://deadline.com/2016/09/i-love-dick-jean-claude-van-johnson-the-tick-series-amazon-pilots-1201826742/] is reporting that Amazon has ordered a full season of the superhero spoof.

The Tick has been on TV twice before, including a live-action show and an animated series. In this incarnation, Guardians of the Galaxy's Peter Serafinowicz stars as the blue-suited titular superhero, with Jackie Earl Haley (Watchmen) playing as Terror, the show's villain. The official description of the show reads:

"In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an accountant with mental health issues and zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero."

The new season of The Tick will be aired next year.

No Warburton, no deal. Plus Amazon only matters to me when I want to buy something, not watch something.

Oh come on, Lucifer is a GREAT show, Sleepy Hollow is good, it's getting grand tour (the original top gear), some people like preacher and Mr. Robot. I'm sure there is plenty of other stuff but that is just off the top of my head.

I have seen the link to "the tick" but honestly, it looks really bad and not bad in a good way like Freakazoid.

I barely even watch Netflix and often miss new episodes of Steven Universe (and thats currently my favorite show). Plus I dont pay for Netflix, cause if I had to, I wouldnt. (Mother has like, a family plan thing, or I use my brothers, not sure)

Just.... no. The Tick is a massive guy who can't help but accidentally break things with glorious enthusiasm. This guy looks like a dude in a plastic halloween costume and that's all. The Tick is one of those things that's too cartooney to properly translate to live action and this doesn't convince me otherwise. It's The Tick via Watchmen, who is coming outta retirement because reasons.

Warburton is actually a producer for this.

And the guy they got to play the Tick here is actually pretty damn good.

What? Seriously? Well, at least I could see the pilot - and I live in Germany.

Only vaguely remember the cartoon The Tick. The pilot was decent and Peter Serafinowicz was good in the role. Costume looked a bit naff but seems like that is part of the charm. So yeah I'm on board for a full season to see what they do.
