Today, Amazon Video revealed their 2016 comedy lineup, and as part of that announcement they've given our first look at Peter Serafinowicz in their forthcoming reboot of The Tick.
A cursory glance around Twitter indicates that the crowd is divided on this one, but it's sort of growing on me the more I look at it.
Yeah, Serafinowicz isn't as bulky as Patrick Warbutton's iteration of the character, and yeah, he's somewhat unrecognizable under the mask (at first glance, I thought I was looking at a roided-out, cosplaying Tobin Bell), but I kind of like how silly it is. This is supposed to be a more grounded take on the property, so I guess I can appreciate them wanting The Tick to look less, y'know, cartoonish. Maybe that's just me.
The Tick will premiere August 19th via Amazon Video. You guys gonna check it out or what?
