They should just take the cast and do an animated S3 at adult swim to make the long wait between venture brothers seasons bearable.

We need to make this happen now.

Iím surprised it hasnít happened yet, given how much history Edlund has with Muculloch and Hammer. Heís written Venture Brothers episodes and I think those two have written for various Tick stuff.

So I just randomly started watching this show after not knowing it existed and seeing it on Amazon. It's surprisingly good so I checked if there was an SA thread, only to find that apparently it stays really good and then gets cancelled. That sucks.

At least the two seasons we got were fantastic.

Just watched the first episode of The Boys and it feels just like a slightly less funny version of The Tick (and Venture Bros).

Iím 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

Itís also less out there with the supers. The tick has some Venture Brothers type dudes running around, The Boys supers are basically one-to-one replicas of existing superheroes. Really VB is the only thing I can think of that does what The Tick does, and it was obviously influenced pretty heavily by older Tick stuff (and this Tick was obviously influenced by VB). Itís not surprising, Edlund has written for VB and Jackson Publick wrote for the Tick comic and did an episode of this show, too.
