We live in a world where Garth Ennis’ The Boys has a live action TV show. And it arrives on the Amazon Prime TV service today! I have such newfound respect for Seth Rogen, who I already loved, who uses his fame and wealth to turn awesome comics into hopefully awesome TV shows!
The Boys was a really good comic, even great at times. I’m excited to see it translated to television. I enjoy Preacher and my hopes are high for The Boys. It’s just a shame it took this long to get made, and Simon Pegg couldn’t play Wee Hughie.
We’re not only living in the golden age of superhero movies, we’re also living in the golden age of comic book TV shows. I really enjoyed The Boys, and I’m a big fan of writer Garth Ennis. So I’m very excited for the upcoming Amazon TV show adaptation!
Looks like they’re really going for it! I kind of like the idea that Seth Rogan is using all of his wealth and power to make fun TV shows about his favorite comics!
The Boys arrives on July 26.
The new Tick TV show is great! Have you seen it? The first handful of episodes are available now on Amazon TV and they’re pretty great! I loved them! And the good news is that the second batch of episodes will be in February!
The new Tick is a really nice update to everything we’ve seen before. It focuses on Arthur as a neurotic nobody who gets thrust into the world of superheroics alongside the mystery and strange new hero, the Tick! And with his help, Arthur might really become a hero and stop the Terror from terrorizing the world!
Also, I’m totally an Arthur/Lint ‘shipper!
Have you heard about the new live action The Tick show on Amazon? They’ve produced a pilot with the hopes that it is popular enough to warrant an entire series. Well I’m here to tell you that the pilot is pretty great and I really hope it gets pushed to a full series pick-up.
And the best news of all is that you can watch the pilot for free online!
I really enjoyed the episode. It’s realistic in all the right ways, while being just cartoony enough to definitely be The Tick. The actors are fantastic, the action is really cool, and neatest of all, it’s written and developed by Ben Edlund, the guy that created The Tick in the first place! How cool is it that the original creator gets to come back and reimagine his most famous creation for a new adaptation? I also really like the big twist of the episode, but I won’t spoil it here.
I don’t know how this pilot program thing really works, but hopefully if we spread the word enough, The Tick will be seen and enjoyed by all. And then picked up for a full series!
