The Famous Ghostbusters Moment That Was Not In The Original Script

The original "Ghostbusters" is arguably one of the most quotable movies of the 1980s – which is strange to think about, considering it's a movie about a bunch of slacker scientists who sort of stumble their way into discovering a way to capture ghosts in New York City. Among the film's many memorable lines is "don't cross the streams," a crucial piece of info that Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) gives to his ghostbusting pals and which comes back to save the day at the end of the film. (I am genuin...

‘The Tick’ Season 2 Ordered By Amazon Studios

Attention, citizens: The Tick has officially been renewed for a second season.

Amazon Greenlights The Tick, I Love Dick, And Jean-Claude Van Johnson

After another round of letting people check out pilots, Amazon Studios has given the go ahead on three series, and they’re all pretty fantastic. I Love Dick, Jean-Claude Van Johnson, and The Tick all got series orders, and will come out in 2017. You can still catch the pilots if you didn’t manage to get to them yet, and at least now be more comfortable in the fact that you’ll get to watch the shows. I Love Dick is a strong, but odd, effort starring Kevin Bacon, and is executive produced by Jill ...

‘The Tick’ Clips: Destiny Is Calling Out to The Tick

Peter Serafinowicz has some big shoes to fill with the rebooted live-action version of The Tick. The character was last played by Patrick Warburton in the far too short-lived Fox television series. A scheduling conflict meant he couldn’t play Ben Edlund‘s character again, but we’re confident Serafinowicz will make for a fine replacement. The Tick pilot debuted on Amazon last night, but if you haven’t seen it yet you can get a taste of Serafinowicz in action in two new clips from The Tick. Ed...

A batch of new The Tick stills have been revealed, showing more of Serafinowicz in that musclebound blue suit, plus Griffin Newman as Arthur, Jackie Earle Haley as The Terror, Brendan Hines as Superian, and more.

Amazon’s ‘The Tick’ Revival Will Be “Darker and More Grounded,” Says Creator Ben Edlund

When the original The Tick live-action series debuted in 2001, it was a very different time for superheroes. X-Men had hit theaters the year before, but Spider-Man, Batman Begins, and Iron Man were still to come, and while comic book shows were definitely around (Smallville debuted that same season), they were nowhere near as ubiquitous they are now. In contrast, Amazon’s upcoming revival of The Tick is coming into a landscape dominated by Marvel and DC characters, with no end to the trend in s...

‘The Tick’ Will Put Peter Serafinowicz in the Big Blue Suit

A couple of weeks ago we got the exciting news that Amazon’s revival of cult superhero comedy The Tick was on, with an official pilot order and everything. There was just one big catch: Patrick Warburton wouldn’t be filling that big blue suit again. Instead, the team involved (including Tick creator Ben Edlund) would go on the hunt for a new lead. And now they’ve found one in Peter Serafinowicz.  The British actor and comedian is set to lead the new series, according to TheWrap. The new serie...

In Africa's 'cradle,' an old fossil site yields new finds

By Ed Stoddard KROMDRAAI, South Africa (Reuters) - Crouched in a shallow square grid dug into the red African earth, American graduate student Sarah Edlund uses a hand brush to scrape soil into a dustpan. "We have found a lot of quartz and this is important because it is not natural to this area ... It must have been brought here," Edlund said as she topped up her bucket with soil before taking it to a sifting device, where the dirt is separated from the quartz and other potential scientific tre...
