Trivia

When Peter Serafinowicz is doing the voice of the nightlight speaking to Arthur, he recorded his audio when he was on set, just off camera. This is unusual because actors typically record this type of dialogue in an ADR session after initial production has wrapped. See more »

Worth the View
1 September 2017 | by thekingsterSee all my reviews

Anyone who has enjoyed episodes of "The Tick" in years bygone will not be disappointed in this series. While I am only six episodes in - the voice characterization of The Tick and his comedic quotes are enough to carry a sublime story line.

This character adaptation paints The Tick as the consummate hero - albeit strangely cast in this role. It has the feel of a "good" Deadpool. Some of the other character choices seem a bit wonky - but it adds to the mystique of what is to come.
