Nerdy Show Review: Amazon’s The Tick – Season 1 – Spoiler-Free
When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.
The biggest, boldest, bluest name in superhero comedy is bounding back into your life! This week Amazon unveils the first season of The Tick (or half of it anyway). Ben Edlund has returned to his cyan creation with the incomparable Peter Serafinowicz in the title role alongside a cast of up-and-comers. Join Cap, Tony, and Doug as we celebrate the Ticks that have come before and discuss the finer points of what this new spin on an old favorite does differently. In this spoiler-free review, learn how the show has evolved past the pilot that was released last year and what a darker, more story-driven series can do for comedy and classic Tick stories that prior shows couldn’t.
