The Tick was a pretty good show - definitely did not deserve to be cancelled so quickly. Patrick Warburton is perfect as The Tick and the rest of the cast ranges from okay to very good. But honestly, the real reason I'm writing this is just as a counterpoint to the moron who said "gee, I don't know if it's good or not, I've never seen it...but my wife told me it was bad...so I guess I'll rate it 1 out of 5."
so much potential...1/10/2008
and yet cancelled after only 9 episodes. I was so dissapponted when this series origianlly aired because it didn't even get half a season before getting canned. I thoroughly enjoyed every epsiode during the inital broadcast, and found it just as funny when I watched the DVDs last year. Now I have seen the cartoons and these are even better IMO. I felt I needed to chime in here to get the rating up after someone who hasn't even watched the epsiodes gave them a 1. And just to note, my girlfriend loved the DVD epsisodes just as much as I did, and she never got to the see them when they aired originally.
Patrick at his best12/18/2006
If you are a fan of Patrick Warburton then you will love this series. The humor is right up his alley...dry and witty. Unlike the last reviewer who depended upon his wife to tell him that it was no good, I have actually seen the entire series and love every episode. I just wish corporate TV knew a great series when they saw it.
The Tick Live - An Itch You Don't Want9/2/2006
We had high hopes for this show because we loved the animated Tick series. It is hard to eat dinner while laughing so hard. Too bad. My wife said the live show is "nasty" and terrible in general. As such, I have never watched it, but I don't need to. The series speaks for itself as it was canceled half-way into the first season. Buy the hilarious animated version DVDs instead. What a shame - sorry, Patrick.
