But support The Tick. And here's why. If sales of this DVD are poor, then the execs over at Walt Disney are going to decide that they failed because people weren't interested in the content, because they don't want to blame themselves. Studio execs get paid enormous salaries, all based on the idea that they don't make mistakes that cost the company lots of money. If they make that mistake, they will find something else to blame. It's what they're good at. It's why they still have their jobs, even with all those atrocious movies Disney's been peddling for the past few years.
So yeah. It stinks that this set doesn't have Alone Together. It really does. But if we want to give The Tick a chance for a truly complete collection, a collection that the studio execs are going to be willing to go to bat for, to fight for the rights to all the episodes for, then we have to prove to them that it's going to be a hit when it happens. Support the Tick. If not for you, then for me. Because this show epitomizes everything that I love about what comics can be, what television can be, and what true heroism in the face of horrid cynicism can be. Fight for the Tick, cause he'd damn well fight for you. Spoon, baby. Spoon.
In this season we learn all about the origin of Arthur's suit in "The Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love". The villianous Venus steals Arthur and the Tick's arms and uses them on crime-committing robots in "Armless but Not Harmless". Die Fladermaus falls in love with a villianess in "Evil Sits Down for a Moment". The Tick and Arthur appear on a reality show, "Heroes". And we meet an entire alien race that looks just like Arthur in "The Tick vs. the Big Nothing". Of course, it is not the plots of the shows (summarised in other reviews) that is the fun of the show. No, it is the absurd villians, the even more absurd heroes, and the Tick's social commentary (mostly unwitting) and head-shaking malaproposes that gives the show it's enduring charm.
For me, the highlights of this season are threefold - (1) the battle between our heroes and the Deadly Bulb, caught on camera on the reality show "Heroes." It is especially fun for those old enough to remember Cops, as it is clearly meant to be a parody (or homage?) of that show. (2) the introduction of Carmalita as a love interest to Arthur in "The Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love" - this subplot plays out more in Season 3, but it's fun to see the Tick become jealous of Arthur seeing someone else on craft night. (3) My favourite episode of the season is far and away "The Tick vs.Read more ›
