It's new but it's the same. And I am listening to the call of Destiny and wanting to answer by the third ring.
26 August 2016 | by ron-campbellSee all my reviews

Speaking as a 50-something man-child who has loved this character since the 90s, I gotta say, like many of the reviewers here, that initially I was taken aback and somewhat confused at the direction this version chooses. But after the halfway point, I let go of my preconceptions and just allowed this to play out.

It grows on you. This version of the Tick is - mostly - exactly as you remember him. And while the costume leaves a lot to be desired, Peter Serafinowicz's Tick (which is just a lovely Adam West impersonation - right down to the use of "chum") - he is as big and clunk headed as he should be. The addition of a more "realistic" storyline for Arthur I think works; and would give the series legs if it is picked up. I would love to see more of this.

And the casting of Arthur could not be more spot on. The actor plays the serious parts and the comic foil equally well.

The humor is the same. It has a small touch of sincerity which the original and the 2000s live action didn't need nor would have benefited from. But the one-off joke of superheros in a superhero-jaded world has been done. This sort of recasts that feeling and offers a new take. Is The Tick nothing more than Arthur's psychosis? It would explain a lot. Does it even matter?

So happy that Edlund is trying again to bring the big guy out of retirement!
