I loved the Tick carton and I love the idea.
16 October 2017 | by Elewis1195See all my reviews

This episode is much improved over the Amazon pilot, which, to me, fell flat. Dot is a great inclusion and they changed Arthur's back story a bit and reworked the first episode into a much neater story. This was a solid start to what might be a promising series to tick fans. It's hard to pull off the Tick's silliness and simple-mindedness in a way that works. The Cartoon did it. Patrick Warburton didn't. Peter Serafinowicz does a better job than Patrick, but he still comes across as just silly sometimes, but it's the best live-actor Tick so far. He was funny when bullets were bouncing off him.

As a tick fan, I say, solid start and nice tight episode.
