yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

I can see them playing with the idea that other people think the Tick is a figment of Arthur's imagination (probably his sister), but yeah, having him actually be a Tyler Durden seems like a bridge too far.

The pilot was directed by Wally Pfister, who is Christopher Nolan's most often-used cinematographer.

 

That certainly explains quite a bit about the pilot's visual tone...

I saw it. I could totally go for Tick being a figment of Arthur's imagination or no one believing Tick is real. Maybe they can mute that thug saying he saw a blue guy or it was really Arthur just bombing the place while wearing a blue ski mask.

Who's the evil woman? Didn't hear a name.

The hero with his hands broken will probably be return somehow.

Well, one possible plot thread would be that the Tick was the surviving member of Flag Five who underwent experimental treatment to restore his eyes and hands, but it cost him his grip on reality.  I expect it would turn out to not be the case, but could be milked as a subplot for a few episodes.

Just starting episode 4 now... so far I'm really enjoying it.  I never really watched the old cartoon or original live-action series, but I'm really liking this take.  It's bizarre, amusing, a bit dark, and pretty endearing.  The casting and production values are also pretty impressive.

 

EDIT: And done.  Really hoping we get more episodes soon.  I think Ms. Lint was one of my favourite things about the series... really loved the "supervillain trying to adapt to a less super life" thing, and her living situation was pretty amusing.

If they can keep the writing quality up, I think it might just end up my favorite incarnation of the franchise.

4 eps in.  I'm really enjoying this take.  Everyone is so dark and life is hellish and then there's this big blue guy who is just so goddamn positive all the time.  It's fantastic.

They fixed all my gripes from the pilot. Suit correct color blue and doesntnmhave the terrible lump texture. The new shots, and most the shots\blocking make him look larger. There shot at the Fight Club theory where hilarious. He also sounds much more natural in the role, and a good fit for the tick.

That's WAY too much of a cliffhanger for a Season finale. It doesn't feel like a complete arc of a story has been told.

Apparently it's one season in two parts, with the second part airing... dunno. So, basically, yeah, one very short season. I watched two episodes before realizing I was already halfway through!

 

I really like the changes from the pilot--better suit, a little less dark and a little more comic in tone--but it feels like I'm halfway through a Tick movie right now. I'd prefer it were a bit more episodic. They said "season 1 part 2" is sort of another arc, so I guess that's just how it's going to be.

 

It's really interesting to me that Ben Edlund created this thing as a 12-issue black-and-white comic in the 80s, and in the 30 years since then he's personally adapted it into three very different TV shows. A G-rated Saturday Morning cartoon, a PG-13 live-action sitcom, and now an R-rated live-action dramedy. Each iteration has felt so distinct, yet each one has kept the core superhero satire intact and had its first episode written by the same dude. It's pretty impressive.

Yeah, it's supposed to be a 12 episode season.  I hope Amazon doesn't take another year to get the next six out.  I think they have a real winner with this series, and I'm eager to see more.
