Since I don’t subscribe to Amazon Video I wasn’t 100% up on this one, and it looks like I’ll have to get my Prime account in order so I can enjoy the return of Ben Edlund’s “The Tick” to the live action small screen. Check out the official trailer below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I enjoyed the simplicity and weirdness of the original live-action “The Tick” series and as a big fan of Patrick Warburton, it was fun seeing him in the role. Sadly he is not The Tick in this new series coming to Amazon Video in late August. As far as the original source material, I was only the casual fan of it and would read it once in a while. I enjoyed it but my money was spent on the numerous Batman and Spider-Man titles of the day. This is when there were like five or six of each to follow and that was surely a pain in the budgeting patoot but I digress. From the look of this trailer there is certainly a lot of action and a modern day update to the costumes. A lot can be done with this stuff some seventeen years after a previous try. Though we don’t see them in the trailer, my hope is for the return of De Fledermaus and American Maid who were a part of the comic book series but renamed to other characters in the first live-action show. I didn’t rush to post this since peoples attention span is so fast to lose nowadays and figured a few weeks before its availability would work out best. Remember that you will need a subscription to Amazon Video to enjoy this one, and I imagine that this comes part and parcel with a Prime account. Since I don’t have that one myself, I am unschooled in its workings. If any reader wants to do a hookup with a free account or perhaps our corporate overlords of Amazon.com you know how to reach me ;p Let me know what you think about this trailer and the idea of a new series about “The Tick”. Some interesting purchases are linked to below. Ciao.
