Trivia

Modifications were made to Captain Liberty's costume between the pilot episode and the rest of the series, the most noticeable being her boots: in the pilot, her boots go up to mid thigh. They are replaced in the rest of the series by more practical knee-high boots. See more »

Quotes

Fiery Blaze: So, eh... What does Arthur do?
The Tick: He flies, once in a while. Mostly he yells, like when I leave the cap off the toothpaste.
Fiery Blaze: Wow, there... Hey, that's no good for you, man. You're the superhero! You gotta keep your head clear to wage war against the wicked. Sidekicks are supposed to put the cap back on the toothpaste.
The Tick: I hear that!
Fiery Blaze: Hey, you're the starplayer on this team. He's supposed to take care of the little stuff - bills, laundry, sending out Christmas cards.
The Tick: Go tell it on the mountain!
Fiery Blaze: Dude......

Great show
7 December 2001 | by bellini97See all my reviews

I'm really enjoying this show. Seeing how it is live-action though, it can't go all out in the bizarre the way the animated series easily could. So they seem to be concentrating on more down-to-earth storylines, if that's possible in a show like this, making it a kind of "Seinfeld" with superheros. So far it has been keeping me laughing with its stories of hero-sidekick relations and more adult humor. Patrick Warburton is excellent in the title role. He's bound to shout out "SPOON!" sooner or later, so don't worry about that. The show is very funny and clever, and I'm really hoping it doesn't get abused like the cartoon did, or worse, get axed too early.
