Lay low hotel.

Oh! I didn't notice Lint doing that, but I did love that the hotel was called the "lay low" hotel. It's the hotel where the bad guys lay.

Good interview, but I think he's mixing up Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer. He refers to Chris McCulloch and Jackson Publick as different people, but they're the same person.

Holy poo poo that was an excellent season of television. Fittingly, reminded me of the quality improvement between seasons 1 and 2 of the cartoon.

My favorite callback was when Joan became Plunger-Woman. You know that was intentional.

It was in later episode; I re-watched and it was fine for most of the episodes. I'll figure it out.

... Upon this re-watch, I picked up on some references.

The Mole Men were mentioned. I really wish they would have worked in some variant of "THE LIGHT! OUR EYES! THE LIGHT IS TOO MUCH FOR OUR HUGE, UNDERDEVELOPED, SUBTERRANEAN EYES!"

Again, "That [arm wrestling machine] is Over the Top!"

I still need to figure out what that symbol is that Thrakkorzog draws to resurrect Rathbone.

OK, I have a new personal headcanon for this show:

This show and the Tick cartoon series take place in the same universe. However, the Amazon series is filtered through Arthur's viewpoint, while the cartoon is filtered through Tick's viewpoint.

For example, Aegis and the Comet Club? Same thing.

That's why in the cartoon, Speak is an awful capybara, but in the show, he's essentially Alex Jones.

I swear, the first thing I thought when I saw that talking dog was, "I'll call you 'Speak' because that's what you do!"

That, and there was a talking dog in the cartoon, I think. In the sidekick's lounge. Oh man, why couldn't we get The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs At Midnight on the Amazon series? I'd love that! Who'd play him, though... Bobcat Goldthwait from 1989?

Bobcat Goldthwait has to voice Mr. Creamy (I hadn't noticed this before but my wife caught it last night).

Iím really glad Flexon turned out to be a really good guy. I feel like they were sort of setting him up for a heel turn for a minute. Nice to see Steven Ogg play a decent character for once instead of a kill crazy manic.

I like that they've turned Dot from a character whose sole purpose is to be the 100% normal, straight-laced sibling to the co-lead protagonist, a guy who wants to be in the superhero game and suddenly can be thanks to a super-suit and a nigh-invulnerable superhero who has inexplicably imprinted on him. Instead of just being a contrast point, like the little heart some women put on their bodies to gauge how deep their tan is, she's a well-rounded character and full-on badass. Well, a badass in training, but that's badder of an rear end than I was expecting when this all began. I thought she'd be a caretaker-type who is constantly pulling Arthur back toward normalcy, but she's not.

Hell, for a while, I was worried that she'd just follow her brother, but no, she's branching out with someone else, and her methods are not at all what Arthur's are. And they gave her a legit superpower, which is cool.

I like how in the first season, she was trying to be the protective big sister to her supposedly mentally-ill brother who was clearly getting in over his head. This season, Arthur decides to try and be the big brother, as he thinks he's got a handle on how this lifestyle works, and Dot is doing something very different.

If we get a Season 3, I wonder where they'll go with her.

So who doesn't have some kind of superpower, device, or training now? From season 1 to season 2 Dot and Kevin got powers, and Walter was revealed as an agent. It seems like Joan is the only recurring character that is normal still. Maybe Dr Agent Hobbes was onto something.

I listened to a Ben Edlund interview where he talked about this. He said that Dot's "tragic flaw" was that she was born a third tier supporting character, having to be a caregiver for Arthur, and never got a chance to deal with her own trauma; now that Arthur's standing on his own feet, she's finally able to have a look at herself.

The crazy thing is, I think it's literally their highest-rated show right now by the numbers. Percentagewise it has 95% positive on Amazon; their other "hit" shows like Ms. Maisel and Bosch peak out at 80%.

I think Amazon.com doesn't actually own the show, so in principle some other channel could pick it up. That's why the #SaveTheTick hashtag is trending - the idea is to get some other place to pick it up. I dunno what the odds look like, but I sure hope it works!
