Produced by Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black I & II) and Barry Josephson (Bones) and based on the hit comic book, this hysterical set contains nine episodes, spanning the entire series. So let this be a warning to naughty people everywhere, for you have met ... The Tick!

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading description. May 1, 2014
Verified Purchase
This show is great, but the product description for the DVD set I bought specifically says "Aspect Ratio: 1.77:1". It's not true. The DVDs I received are in 1.33:1 (fullscreen not widescreen) format. Will still enjoy the show, but disappointed in the misinformation.

Edit: I just noticed the back of the DVD case also says "Aspect Ratio: 1.77:1" even though that's not true. Avoid this set if you want a widescreen version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious. Every bit as good as the original. May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
I was a big fan of the cartoon growing up, so I was a little skeptical when I purchased this series because it had been cancelled so quickly. How wrong I was--this series did not disappoint! After a quick setup in the pilot, the show hit its stride in episode two and never let off for the whole season. Great acting and character chemistry, funny situations, and no shortage of witty repartee. Patrick Warburton captured The Tick's persona perfectly, complete with pithy soliloquies. I laughed so hard I was worried that might bother the neighbors. Add this title to the ever-growing list of great series killed by Fox well before their time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Series, Poor Release! April 27, 2014
By Ben
This show was way ahead of it's time, and way too short lived! A live-action adaptation of the comic book, it was filled with sarcasm, satire, and good old-fashioned Super Hero hi-jinx! The series itself gets 5 enthusiastic stars, I can't recommend it highly enough! HOWEVER. For some unknown reason, Mill Creek chose to take the original widescreen format and chop it down to full frame. I disagree with doing that, but it's not the worst thing in the world. The problem is, that Mill Creek then blatantly lies on the packaging, which clearly states that the episodes are still in their original widescreen format. Instead, what they did was take the full-frame copies of the episodes and stretch them to a widescreen dimensions and hope no one noticed! Last time I checked, that was called bait-and-switch. Buyer beware, you aren't getting what you pay for with this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tipical Warburton March 12, 2014
Verified Purchase
This was a short but funny series. I had a copy of some of the episodes that a friend made shortly after the series ended. I was glad to see that they finally got a DVD of all the episodes. If you like him in Rules of Engagement you'll like The Tick.

5.0 out of 5 stars A SHOW AHEAD OF IT'S TIME March 7, 2014
When I heard back in 2001 that THE TICK was going to become a live action series on TV I was thrilled. The comic, that would be considered underground by some, was hilarious as had been the animated series back in 1994. My expectations were high and fortunately they were well placed. The show was hilarious and I loved it. Apparently I was in a minority though because it sadly lasted only one season. Luckily the entire series has been available on DVD, first for a steep price that eventually dropped and now for just $9.82 (amazon.com price).

If you aren't aware of the series or haven't heard of the Tick then you're truly missing out on one funny show. With super heroes all the rage these days, the series was obviously well ahead of it's time. But the superheroes on display here are not the average ordinary types that we have today. Sure, they may be found in colorful tights, but they are not the successful bunch found in most movies now.

No one knows where the Tick came from. As played by Patrick Wharburton he is central to the success of the show in a role that I can't imagine anyone else playing now. Dressed in what appears to be a latex blue one piece outfit with wiggling antennae (one of the funniest visual things in the show), the Tick leaves a bus station he's been guarding to head to the big city. His goal is to put a stop to crime. The Tick has several things going wrong for him though. The first is that he has no clue of his own strength and with that the ability to be aware of the things that he does around him. Like knock out portions of roofs as he leaps from one to the next. He also has a tendency to try and make everything he says sound profound. His tone may make it so but not his choice of words.
