As you might recall, we showcased some of the details and visuals from “The Tick” that ran its debut season a few months ago on the Amazon Prime service. It’s a streaming show so you’ll need to either be a subscriber or be sharing the account with another member of your family in your household. Earlier today the series had its “Part Two” of the first season become available and here are some details for those just joining us.
The Premise: The Tick is a nigh-invulnerable superhero in a blue tick costume who arrives in The City to help combat crime, and uncover the mysterious figure behind the city’s underworld. He befriends (or may have been imagined into existence by) a nervous and mild-mannered young man called Arthur who becomes his sidekick: They come to realize that an apparently long-dead supervillian called “The Terror” may still be pulling the strings in the city’s underworld.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As my initial notes about this service remain the same I will repeat them here. Although I thought this was a fun idea to support I never did get around to subscribing to Prime. It’s one of those “when there is a little extra money” things to do for me because right now my entertainment dollars are well over budget. As I type that I wonder where all the friends who wanted access to my Netflix or my Ultraviolet codes from my Blu-rays have disappeared to. Hmmmm, curious. Anyway, perhaps this will be something that I can enjoy in the near future or see on full season disc when released. This stuff seems to hit the stores very quickly nowadays and I guess this is done to not miss out on any of the excitement about it. What about you my friends, are any of you Amazon Prime subscribers and looking forward to this little bit of comic book live action silliness? Let me know down in the comments section below.
