Trivia

The first episode premiered on Amazon.com's Prime subscription streaming service on August 19, 2016. It was part of the first Comedy Pilot Season, an extension of the popular and ongoing "choose your own programming" experiment known as Pilot Season. The three half-hour comedies included I Love Dick (2016), The Tick (2016) and Jean-Claude Van Johnson: Pilot (2016). Subscribers vote on which of the three series will be picked up based on just the first episode/pilots. See more »

User Reviews

 
The single greatest thing Amazon has ever done.
23 February 2018 | by PJKSee all my reviews

My new favorite show.

Parody of super heroes Satire of Super heroes While also, still, somehow, a superhero show in it's own right. Filled with complex characters, heart string plucking hero's journey...

While also being the funniest thing on tv.

I'd say this is something new, except Edlund has being doing this for almost 30 years. He just keeps getting better and better at it.

Can't recommend any higher.

Amazing.

Please please please Amazon, keep on making this.
