This show wasn't nearly as good as the earlier cartoon, The Tick. I guess there was a comic book before the cartoon, but I never read it. But I loved the cartoon, and I rather liked this live-action version. It had a decent cast, and it was funny, and it deserved to live longer. Patrick Warburton is exactly who I would have chosen to play the Tick in a live-action version of the cartoon, so I have no reason to complain about that. Um, anyway... the Tick is this big blue superhero who's fairly clueless and stuff. And his sidekick is Arthur, a guy in a moth suit. And they had friends named Captain Liberty (who we quite like) and Batmanuel, who in the cartoon were called American Maid and Die Fledermaus. And um, anyway, this whole 'being a superhero' gig is just like another job and stuff, um, it's kinda weird, I dunno what to tell you. I really wish it would have lasted longer. Someday I definitely have to get the DVDs.
