The TICK Returns To TV

In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero. The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin) and Brendan Hines (Scorpion). The Tick is executive produced by Ben Edlund (Supernatural), Barry Josephson (Bones) and Barry Sonnenfeld (A Series of Unfortunate Events), directed by Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight), and written by Edlund. The Tick is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television.
I noticed that Jackie Earle Haley is in this one and he is currently killing it on Preacher. I look forward to seeing which character he will be playing. Everything I have seen him in since Watchmen has been GOLDEN.

The first time I ever saw the TV version with Patrick Warburton, I said "WTF IS THIS???" But it grew on me eventually and I quite enjoyed its zany weirdness. So I'll watch the upcoming new version with interest!

I liked the cartoon too. So many cool and weird characters. I hope they bring in El Seed with his matador outfit and sunflower head.

El Seed, LOL! Love bad puns like that.
