The Tick

Postby Nyarlathotep » Tue Aug 29, 2017 4:11 am

Anyone else watching the new Tick series on Amazon? It's funny as hell. I honestly recommend it. The guy that plays The Tick is giving him sort of an Adam West vibe. And the other supers he deals with are great as well.

It's better thanIron Fist at least. The sad part is they only released six epsiodes and while they are supposed to do a season of 12, there is no date for the next 6

The manga was fantastic and Patrick Warbarton was The Tick in the Japanese Original television version.

It is kind of funny not to hear his voice. "The Tick" was a complete piss-take of the superhero and other genres. Two who worked with the creator Englund went on to create The Venture Brothers.

SPOON!

I couldn't see or hear anyone other than Warburton as The Tick either, but the new guy (don't even ask me to spell his name) is great. It's like Adam West and Patrick Warburton had a baby and cast him in the show. And that is a perfect combo for the new guy.

I enjoyed the hell out of these 6 episodes and the new guy was fine, but I was never huge on PuddyTick anyway. He was also fine. The animated The Tick is hard to top. But I've always thought with the right direction The Rock would be the best possible The Tick.

The big difference that I noticed was that the secondary support heroes appear competent...so that's a change. And my favorite character so far is Alan Tudyk's Dangerboat.

Dangerboat is great. Hope to see more of him when they drop the rest of the series. I also liked the way Overkill and Ms. Lint kept asking Arthur if the other "Said anything about me" every time they would get brought up to the other one.

I think the Adam West vibe was always the intent with the Tick.

None to worry. Patrick Warburton is directing. He has The Tick firmly by destiny's wheel.....with both hands.... in the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock positions...... of justice!
Such potential!

Binge watched all six with my kids today. Loved every minute. Really loved the story of how Miss Lint got her name and how Overkill fully lives up to his name. Love how Dot moonlights as a surgeon for the mob. So much fun stuff!

TEN and TWO!!

TEN AND TWO!!!1!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PSuhYcWhmM

One of the Mystery to Fans is who the Venture Brothers' Mom[Tm.--Ed.] is. It is not a mystery to the characters; at one point Dr. Venture notes, "oh yeah, I've never told you about your mother" only to get interrupted. So the creators--who worked on The Japanese Original Tick--decided to sort of make a game of it.

In an earlier part, Weak Pussy Brother Dean is trying to practice driving--at about 1 mph--constantly chanting "ten and two!" as he grips the wheel.

Hence Myra chanting the same thing.

She is not, however, Their Mom.

It was 10 and 2 when I took driver's ed, then they changed it to 9 and 3 for some stupid reason.

I drive with my right hand only in the 2 position for a very good reason....when I get sleepy, I'll drift into the rumble strip instead of into oncoming traffic.

They use to teach "ten and two" like, in, the seventies, then someone figured out 9 and 3 is safer. I wonder if it is because steering wheels are smaller, power steering, communist influences, who knows?

If you never saw The Venture Brothers, the two brothers dress and act like they stepped out of the early sixties. So one of them obsessing on "ten and two" makes sense. I cannot find the scene on T3h Y00t00bz, but Dean actually follows a checklist like you would find in a '50s-60s Mobil flier to excruciating detail.

Instead, enjoy:
