I hope we get a run at least as long as the cartoon's. For a character who's been around as long as the Tick has, I've never really felt there was enough.

Ben Edlund spent ten years on Supernatural he can spend five on the big blue boi

i feel like the tick and venture bros should share canon

There wasn't a B-Story or character I wasn't 100% delighted to spend time with in the entire series. That's an absolute rarity in any show or film, really.

its really surprising how wholesome it is, as well. not nearly as many betrayals as i expected

The Duke being decapitated and the human furniture thing also definitely hinted at the possibility at Chairface, but :shrug:

The Duke's thing being mad super science wouldn't mesh with Chairface's typical M.O. though so it's only surface hinting.

the duke wasnt chairface.....but maybe the guy he decapitated was

I dunno if I'm in the thread minority here, but I thought The Tick was good, but not great. It was rarely laugh-out-loud funny (if it was aiming to be a comedy) and the budget was obviously low in many scenes. A lot of the time the plot dragged and there were filler episodes, which is weird in a show with so few to spare. It gave me vibes of like a Telltale episodic game where they had to re-use assets and puzzles to save money.

IMO it was enjoyable and heartfelt at times, but not a top-tier show and it really seemed like it had cancellation written all over it when I watched.

please dont post in my thread

The reddit thread about it said that this was "We'll fix it in post, the TV show". Like the Tick's suit had tons of seams they didn't want to show, so they had people fixing it digitally in every scene of every show rather than fixing things with wardrobe

that explains why it looked so freaking good

It looked good in the way something that was done on a small budget but stretched to make the most of it looks. To find it was almost the opposite is a bit disappointing. With that kind of money it becomes much harder to excuse the rough round the edges stuff like Arthur's flying scene looking awful.

i meant the ticks s2 costume

Im not seeing it outside of the superheroes. The Tick had a lot of real positivity and optimism to it. The Boys is the polar opposite of it tonally.

the boys also doesnt have any supervillains or superhero culture, since all the people with superpowers are basically owned by the same corporation
