The Tick

In March, it was announced that Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television were developing a pilot for a live-action series based on Ben Edlund‘s superhero spoof comic book The Tick, with Edlund scripting and serving as an executive producer and British comedic genius Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy) cast in the title role. The pilot was directed by Wally Pfister, the cinematographer on all three of Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, Inception, and Moneyball.

Recently Amazon released both the premiere date for the pilot and a small set of images, including our first look at Serafinowicz is full Tick attire. You can check out the pictures here below.

Peter Serafinowicz to Star In The Tick

Back in 2001 a live-action TV series based on Ben Edlund‘s comic The Tick was made with Seinfeld, Family Guy, and The Emperor’s New Groove star Patrick Warburton playing the title role. The show aired on Fox and, as shows tend to do there, only lasted nine episodes (related note #1: Edlund also worked on that other show you think of when you think of Fox shows that were canceled too early, Firefly, writing the episodes “Trash” and “Jaynestown” and also producing). But even with its short run, the show has developed a cult following.

While that show isn’t coming back to life, Amazon has ordered a pilot episode for a potential brand new series based on Edlund’s Tick character. Nothing is official yet as far as getting a full series order, but an actor has been chosen to take over the role from Warburton. It’s being reported that comedian, actor, writer, and all-around talented gentleman Peter Serafinowicz will take on the title role for the pilot.

It’s been two long weeks since our last Gotham fix, so here’s a bit of what you missed from Gotham 1.11 “Rogue’s Gallery”. Spoiler alert!

In our first Arkham-centric episode, Jim (Ben McKenzie) finds some strange goings on at the asylum, to no one’s surprise. Someone is doing electric experiments on the patients. Jim looks to Dr. Thompkins (Morena Baccarin) and Harvey (Donal Logue) for help. Go, Montoya (Victoria Cartagena)! She is becoming one of my favorite characters as she kicks Barbara (Erin Richards) to the curb for her own good. But when Barbara tries to call Jim, Ivy Pepper answers sneakily, infuriating Barbara. Poor Cat’s (Camren Bicondova) kind deed backfire’s on Jim. Don Maroni (David Zayas) teaches Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) a hubris lesson, by leaving him to stew in jail after he tries to squeeze more money out of fisherman without Maroni’s consent.

Before we get to the Gotham 1.6 “Spirit of the Goat” review, let’s recap, shall we?

Spoilers ahead!!

Previously on Gotham: Is Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) a good guy or a bad one? He starts out with all these ideals. He didn’t have to choose Gotham, he wanted to make a difference. Poor Jim! Saddled with morally ambiguous partner, Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), Jim got more than he bargained for. He’s been hung upside-down from a meat hook, while investigating Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) parents’ murder, befriending the boy in the process. He fake killed Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), who is back causing complications galore. His girl Barbara (Erin Richards) is being warned about him by her ex-lesbian lover, Montoya (Victoria Cartagena), with whom he works. He saved future Catwoman (Camryn Bicondova) from a child trafficking ring. Jim and Harvey stop a balloon vigilante and a deadly bone-crumbling drug on the street.
