5.0 out of 5 stars Gravity is a harsh mistress..., 21 Nov 2007
This review is from: The Tick Complete Season One [1994] [DVD] (DVD)
I came to love this series when I was in my third year at Uni - every Tuesday night we'd sit and watch and chuckle and repeat the frankly ridiculous dialogue to each other. Why it has taken 12 whole years to get onto DVD I don't know. The good news is that it has.

The great thing is that it's EXACTLY as good as I remember it being (unlike so much stuff I watched when I was younger), from the overblown pompous lessons in goodness espoused by the big blue idiot to the cast of maladjusted 'superheroes' who aim to protect The City to the really very silly villains. It is absolute comedy gold - almost every minute of every episode is heavy with gags - often surreal and usually squarely aimed at the 'straight' superhero genre.

When I got this double-DVD, I ended up watching all of the episodes within just a couple of days.

"Ugh, mucus - scourge of man..."
