Critic Reviews for The Tick Season 1

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (24)

Maybe slow and steady (and more grounded) will ultimately prove to be the right approach. And maybe this Tick will be able to stick around a little while longer.

Now that the convoluted business with bismuth and Dr. Karamazov is largely contained, there's room for Season 2 to focus less on the overarching, broad criminal conspiracies.

But the title character, played by Peter Serafinowicz, has slowly faded as the series' most fascinating character. The vengeful Overkill (Scott Speiser) and plucky love interest Dot (Valorie Curry) have superhuman chemistry.

It takes Serafinowicz and Newman a couple episodes to settle into the necessary chemistry between The Tick and Arthur, but they do find it. Which is really what matters.

Like the trademark antennae that dance on the Tick's head, Serafinowicz has his character's oddball rhythms down pat.

Aug 23, 2017 | Full Review…

The show is fine, and works as a series of moments, but I'm not sure if it's the familiarity or the execution that stops it from being more than satisfactory.

Aug 23, 2017 | Full Review…

Sometimes you just gotta laugh at the tropes that dominate the genre, and The Tick is more than ready to take them on with the same bombastic vigor with which he battles crime.

Oct 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There is extreme violence and cursing, but in a far more toned down aesthetic. It's simply a fun show that is extremely easy to binge.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

There are a few stumbles early on, owing to characters and plotlines going around in circles, but whether it works will depend on your sensibilities, and how cohesive the tonal shift stays for the season run.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

For those familiar with this parody of a superhero, the appropriately campy pilot shows just the right mixture of wacky humor and legitimate plot to signal that this new adaptation of "The Tick" will be well worth watching.
