It's.ALIIIIIIVE!!!  
The fic for kamikazeremix is finished and posted, and what a relief that is! Now you'll have to wait a week to see it. ;)

Seems like it's been non-stop flailing since returning from vacation. Work is insanely busy, Christopher had a birthday last Thursday and Lauren had her sleepover birthday party on Saturday (so much for getting anything else done that day). Sunday was working on the story interspersed with biking and listening to HalfshellHusband beg me to take another crack at the wireless router.

All I can say is, there'd better be a babysitter available next weekend, though it's Labor Day and that makes things iffy. :0

We did manage, over the course of the week, to finish Disc One of The Tick. Both of us loved this show when it originally aired, but since it's oddball humor we knew it was doomed. One season, 9 episodes. R.I.P. :(

You've got to love a superhero who's so aggressively stupid, and Patrick Warburton is the perfect guy to play him. Mangled metaphors, single-mindedness and recurring dimness are the Tick's hallmarks.

The Tick (chomping on a fortune cookie and discovering the fortune): A secret message... from my teeth!

Arthur (Mothman): Sorry, no offense intended.
The Tick: None comprehended!

The Tick longs for nothing more than to serve Justice, even if all that means is freeing a bus station from the tyranny of its ancient coffee machine. \o/

I don't think we've gotten to that episode yet (Disk Two is the next item in our Netflix Queue).

I find the Tick's dimness SO hilarious, and he never seems to get any smarter. ;)

Also, who can resist Nestor Carbonell as Bat Manuel? :D

Also, have you seen Dr. Horrible yet? Because if you like The Tick, you'd definitely like Dr. Horrible.

Argh, this is the pain of not having cable! Normally I don't mind, but every once in awhile I hate having to wait for stuff to come out on DVD.

So no, I haven't seen it. :(

But it's good to have a rec!

SSSPPPOOOOOONN!

most people in London think I'm completely wacko when I say that, they have no idea :) (obviously I try not to say it too often!)

I still haven't gotten to the episodes where that means anything to me, but I saw it as a direct quote on a Netflix review. ;)

There's nothing like spreading that buttery justice all over the toast of humanity. ;)

Oh my gosh, all this time you've been talking about the Tick, you've meant a live-action show? I thought you meant the cartoon!

Did you know that Ben Edlund was the creator of the Tick (so I've heard)?

It's the live-action version of the comic book. Never saw the comic book OR cartoon (and there is a cartoon). Really, I'm not a big fan of comic books/anime/etc.

But bizarreness? It's my weakness!

And you're right, Ben Edlund was the creator of the comic (original) version of The Tick. :0

I freaking loved the cartoon! From what you've said, I take it it's quite similar to the live action show. Now of course, I must see the live action version. Yay! New TV!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Yay!halfshellvenus on August 27th, 2008 01:06 am (UTC)
AND, you can watch it all before any new Fall TV starts up-- only 9 episodes (1/2 hour each)! \o/

It'll be like popcorn, you'll just keep clicking to the next episode. ;0
