In 2001, Fox premiered the live-action version of The Tick. I thought they did a pretty credible effort capturing the comic book’s goofy, off-kilter charm, despite an incredibly modest budget for a live action network show (they couldn’t even hire someone who looked like Jimmy Carter for the pilot).
So naturally, it being on Fox, they cancelled it after nine episodes
Now comes word that Amazon is resurrecting the show with Patrick Warburton back in the title role.
If it gets picked up, I may have to finally break down and subscribe to Amazon Prime…
