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.Read more ›
Well worth the price, enjoy the series.
For some unknown reasoning the early 2000's The Tick was only a single season which comprised of 9 episodes:
2. The Funeral
4. The License
5. Arthur Needs Space
6. The Big Leagues
7. The Tick vs. Justice
8. Arthur, Interrupted
9. The Terror (unaired)
If you have seen this show (or its animated counterpart from a few years prior, its a must have for your collection) the episodes are still hilarious all these years later, and if you never seen well lets just say you have truly lived until you have seen Patrick Warburton dressed as a giant blue tick with the battle cry of "SPOON!" Its a win-win for everyone!
