This version of the Tick is abysmal. It's not sure if it wants to be a dark superhero show or a parody of a dark superhero show. The unbearable directing never lets any of the tired jokes land, and the actor they got to play the Tick, while good in other things, couldn't understand the character less. This isn't a good Tick adaptation, and it's not a good anything else either. As a dark superhero show it's flat and unoriginal. As a comedy it's poorly paced and too mean spirited. Arthur is ridiculously unlike-able, and the rest of the cast of characters is either off putting or beyond bland. I am incredibly disappointed. I don't think Tick fans will like this, I don't think non Tick fans will like it, I would be amazed if anyone liked it. I'm sure SOMEone will, but I can't think of who. The thing that kills me is it COULD have been good. I see a skeleton that has a lot of potential, and moments that could be memorable, but something always screws it up in a major way. I'd say it was the director, but the acting and writing were awful too. It's almost like nobody who worked on it really cared. The effects were OK for a low budget Amazon original. That's really the only nice thing I have to say. I wish with all my heart that this had been better.
