Well, at least it's a return of The Tick
23 August 2016 | by TyypoSee all my reviews

I was very much looking forward to this, but rather disappointed of it being limited exposure on amazon. I have only a basic account, so will end up paying for future episodes if any. While not perfect, it shows promise. I did like the delivery of lines by Peter Serafinowicz as the title character, but he lacks the threatening presence of Patrick Warburton. I was OK with the Arthur backstory, but don't think it really added anything. Griffin Newman very nearly nailed Arthur, I think.

I did not like The Tick's costume. It looked cheap and cheesy. Was this intentional or were there budget constraints? Significant muscle padding may have been an improvement, since Serafinowicz's frame is not particularly imposing as I note previously. Another criticism I had was that the show is not over-the-top enough. It's like an awkward merging of life as we know it with the absurd, and they just don't "fit". I cannot imagine the plethora of ridiculous Tick characters in this universe, and I would miss that. I don't expect Chairface Chippendale or even The Human Ton & Handy to make appearances due to the apparent effort to make this series more "realistic."

That said, I think the program has considerable potential. I laughed many times, and that's what counts when you're watching a show called The Tick. If there were more episodes available at time of this review, I would have watched them. Perhaps they'll find their balance between playing it straight and embracing ludicrous.
