Not what I was hoping to hear. I am a fan of the cartoon version though.

Well, if you didn't like the prior one, I have no idea why you'd think this would be more to your tastes. But, sadly, it wasn't great. It lacks the manic energy of the earlier works. I wonder if the animated version is available (somewhere). The Warburton version was OK, but not great.

Time to re-read the comics, at least the ones I have.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

Without Patrick Warburton, it's not The Tick...

it is a mixed bag for me. I thought warburton was perfect for the part IF he played it as he does his other roles (A big doofus who is clueless). But he played it like he was an idiot, even down to the dumb looks. This new guy has the manic nuttiness, but channels Adam West far too much.
I like the old costume more.

The back stories, action and effects are new and nice, but I don't think they have it yet. Close, but I'd have to see another episode. It might grow on me. I have the comics too. I think this versionmight be closer to the comic, but we'll see.

I agree the cartoon was best so far!

I liked it - you could almost sing the "Doo dwee doot doot do, dweee dah!" song along with the background music of the first scene, and I cheered when the alarm clock went off to the exact sound effect.

The idea that possibly the Tick is a manifestation of Arthur's psyche is an interesting one, but The Tick is not The Maxx, so I'm not sure I like it.

I wonder what the guy with the crushed hands is going to turn up as.

There was a guy in the cartoon that had a vise for a head, maybe a version of that?

I still don't know why they don't revive it as a cartoon. It would be a far safer bet.

Bringing you quality product in the face of crushing indifference since 1970.

It is okay. I liked Arthur. I'll try the next episode.

I like it, and I hope it gets picked up. As of now they'll only green light one series, this one the Van Damme one or the kevin bacon one.
