The Second Half of The Tick Season One is a Spoonful of a Great Time!

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

No spoilers, just gushing with glee:

In 1986, Ben Edlund created one of the most beloved, hapless heroes who is oblivious to anything but the need for justice.

Roughly, 8 years later, The Tick leaped from the pages of the New England Comics printers to the Fox Saturday morning lineup, a mistake that the network made instead of allowing it to be a lead in to The Simpson’s.

It was 15 years after his creation that Edlund and his executive producing partner, Barry Josephson brought the live-action version to Fox for a 9-episode run that was a true cult classic.

Following another 15-year hiatus, The Tick returned to the small screen on August 25, 2017 for the first half of season one. Now, on Friday, February 23, 2018, the second half of season one will be released and it is even more entertaining than the first six episodes.

Peter Serafinowicz continues his run as the absent minded blue bug, along with Griffin Newman as Arthur, where the two continue to do their best to foil the foul villains of The Terror (Jackie Earle Haley), Ms. Lint (Yara Martinez), Ramses IV (Michael Cerveris) and the unfortunately VLM (Ryan Woodle), all with the “help” of Arthur’s sister Dot (Valorie Curry), Overkill (Scott Speiser), Superian (Brendan Hines) and Tinfoil Kevin (Devin Ratray).

The uniqueness of this version is that The Tick uses adult language, allowing the characters to be played straight in the most absurd of situations.

Just like Jean-Claude Van Johnson, The Tick is a binge watcher’s heaven-sent. One episode flows effortlessly into the next making it feel as if you are watching one full length feature film instead of a television series. Although the budgetary restrictions does not allow for the most high-tech of special effects, the graphics used are absolutely spectacular for the type of storytelling used within this series.

The Tick is everything you’ve ever loved about superheroes and the classic Hanna-Barbara cartoons, all while poking fun of all the insane things our non-comic reading friends made fun of us for enjoying. Edlund and the rest of the writers take their work very seriously, no matter how ridiculous they get and that’s what’s fun about this series in any of its incarnations.

The Tick spoons its way into your que on Friday, February 23, 2018 on Amazon.
