The Tick made me laugh out loud enough to miss the next laugh line. And that doesn't happen often in these TV times of tired old, same old sitcoms. [4 Nov 2001, p.2]
The show is a tour de farce for Warburton, who has the commanding gusto of a superhero and the deadpan style so appropriate for the material. [8 Nov 2001, p.D01]
Viewers looking for something different, and very funny, should latch on to The Tick and not let go. [8 Nov 2001, p.E1]
It's cleverly written, slickly produced and features a sidesplitting star turn by Seinfeld's Patrick Warburton as the big, blue, well-padded superhero with scene-stealing antennae. But the best thing I can say also is the simplest: It made me laugh. A lot.
The Tick"is a funny, creative show and a risk worth taking. It's disappointing Fox has so little faith in these oddball superheroes. [8 Nov 2001, p.E-4]
The tone is satirical, and the look mixes noir with candy-colored latex; but the characters are sweet and extremely human. [8 Nov 2001, p.C20]
