I Am The Wild Blue Yonder: Amazon Resurrects 'The Tick', The World Gets A Little Bit More Awesome

There is hope on the horizon, and it comes in the shape of the Big Blue Bug Of Justice. Yes, that’s right, news is that Amazon has penned a deal to not only bring back the live-action version of “The Tick” to television — or rather, computer — screens, but that Patrick Warburton will be reprising the titular role.

For those who don’t know, “The Tick” was a short-lived TV series in the 90’s that ran for a paltry 9 episodes. It was nine of the greatest episodes in history, and I say that with absolutely zero hyperbole (there was also a longer-lived animated run which was a bit different, but equally excellent). Based on the series written for New England Comics, it features a strange, rather dim-witted superhero who is never seen out of costume, and who no one knows anything about. Even his powers are a bit of a mystery. He spends most of his time with a trio of other heroes, solving relatively mundane problems, and is goddamn hilarious. I couldn’t be happier with this news.

While Amazon has yet to confirm the series’s resurrection, is reporting that it’s a done deal.

That said, all of this will be moot if we don’t get the original cast back. Most importantly, I must have Batmanuel back in my life.
