The Tick

More from Amazon Prime

The Tick is a cult classic comedic superhero created by Ben Edlund in 1986 as a newsletter mascot for his Boston area comic book store. He is super strong and super enthusiastic about fighting crime, but super clueless and kind of weird.

He wears a blue suit topped with expressive antennae and shouts “Spoon!” to strike fear into the hearts of his enemies. He is the epitome of the big, dumb, strong superhero type. As the character grew in popularity he got first his own comic book, then his own cartoon, then his own live-action television show starring Patrick Warburton.

This last series premiered in 2001 and ran for only nine episodes. It is an extraordinarily funny show and Warburton’s Tick truly embodies the epic, righteous, and delusional hero.

It’s a hard act to follow, but Amazon’s The Tick with Peter Serafinowicz in the lead not only succeeds in creating a pitch-perfect reboot but effectively increases the camp factor another level. The 12-episode first season is available to watch now, and at a mere 30-minutes an episode, it is one of the most bingeable shows Amazon has to offer.
