Amazon's 'The Tick'

Recommended Posts

What's the basis of this? Don't think I've heard of it. Will likely give it a watch after the latest half season of Hell on Wheels which they just put up (in UK)

I was kind of interested in watching both the cartoon and the sit-com shows of The Tick but just never got round to it. Maybe this will eventually make me a fan.

I just watched it, thinking it'd hate it... and weirdly I kinda like it? Its filmed really well, looks like a damn film.

So, the whole first season is up now, and I think it's great. The humor is spot on with the original, and I wasn't expecting the mature language and violence. They truly did justice to The Tick, and Amazon has a proper hit show, IMO.

What's so great about the Tick again? There's been like 2 cartoons and two live-action TV shows about this character. He's not the worst character ever, but not one that at least at first glance one would think it would get so many TV shows.

It's a parody on the super hero formula (before other such parodies), and it's a classic brand of humor. The original cartoon also has quite the cult following. It's just one of those things. You might as well as why people like Futurama or Freakazoid. For the record, I wasn't a fan of the old live action tv serious for the Tick...only the cartoon. But this new one is pretty fun.
