There will be a new show from CBS in the summer called Braindead, a show about a girl (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) getting her first job in Washington DC, only to discover that aliens have eaten the brains of Congressmen and other political figures.

Marketed as a comedy, it sounds more like it could be a documentary!!!


Oh, and Amazon has ordered a pilot episode for everyone's favorite mentally disordered super hero, The Tick!!! Yes, they're taking one more shot at making The Tick a live-action show, and where no network as the balls to tread, Amazon does!

Now admittedly, a network did try a live-action series before, but they did not translate the comic book very well at all. It sucked to the degree that even I could not take it... But in this day and age, when comics are being done properly for TV and movies, well, let's see if there's enough Tick fans to make it a series on Amazon!

"Tick, can you destroy the Earth?"
"Egad man, I hope note. That's where I keep all my stuff!!!"
