The Tick 2018 TV Show Series Trailer Reviews Impelreport
The Tick 2018 TV Show Series Trailer Reviews Impelreport. The Tick debuted on Amazon last August (after an earlier pilot premiere) with six very fun episodes of superpowered comedy. The show returns Friday, Feb. 23 with six more episodes that finish off the first season. The new episodes are, disappointingly, just okay.
Flightsuited Arthur and the walking blue bicep known only as The Tick are continuing their quest to take down The Terror, a bad guy who loves mass murder and drum solos. The Tick left off with Arthur coming face-to-face with The Terror, who killed his father. The stage was set for a funny-weird showdown. I’m not sure what went wrong here. The characters are strong. Serafinowicz is a chipper presence, with a trailer voice that makes every line pop. Newman makes Arthur an endearingly frustrated hero.
Overkill’s partner is a robotic vessel named Dangerboat, who seems to be in love with Arthur. It’s almost a lame gay panic joke, but Dangerboat’s voiced by the great Alan Tudyk, who gives the lovedrunk super-ship a forlorn good humor. And the second half of Tick season 1 spends a lot more time with Superian, the very super man played by Brendan Hines. Hines brings something new to the most old-fashioned idea of a superhero: An aloof, inhuman quality, like he’s using X-Ray vision to see when our hearts will stop.
