Wow, ok, never saw that coming. That's definitely a wait and see, I mean I don't hate it at all, just it's hard to envision. That 50 impressions video was pretty terrible though (not unsurprising from Funny or Die).

This is the first thing that pops into my head for Serafinowicz.

WTF?!

If you have never seen it, check out his show, Look Around You.

Look Around You is one of the funniest shows of all time.  This was really unexpected but not unwanted.  I assume he'll be doing an American accent for this show.

BTW, he's also been quite funny in Adventure Time and Gravity Falls, even though he was only in one episode of each.

In my head he's a fairly slightly built guy, will he be bulking up?

If only to haul around the big rubber suit he'll have to wear.

Ben Edlund says The Tick's new series will be "Darker and more grounded" and the Internet is panicking about that.  I've read Edlund's Tick and I'm not even a little bit worried. The comics were always darker and more grounded, but there was still plenty of room for humor and self-awareness. I think The Internet is thinking Superman V. Batman or Deadpool, but I'm expecting/hoping for something more like Venture Bros.

I don't have a particular desire for it, but that is pretty cool.  I'd love it if the Adventure Time and Steven Universe scores were released.  Not just the songs (which are great), but also the music.  Adventure Time often has some great avant garde sounding music, while Steven Universe cribs a lot from classic video game styles.

Amazon's video service is now purchasable as a standalone service for $8.99 a month.

It's still technically cheaper to subscribe to prime, but it's way easier to tap into that, "Hey! I have 8 bucks a month!" mentality...
