Accountant Arthur Everest (Griffin Newman) discovers the city is owned by a supervillian (Jackie Earle Haley), but the only person who believes him is a superhero called the The Tick (Peter Serafinowicz) in this latest adaptation of Ben Edlund’s comic.
What The Critics Say (Metascore 72)
- The latest version remains as wonderfully quirky as all the others, but cleverly adds new layers of depth and character development that will (one would hope) allow it to play out over multiple seasons. — Tim Goodman, The Hollywood Reporter
- Peter Serafinowicz summons just the right amounts of bravado, good cheer, and idiocy to be thoroughly endearing. Like the trademark antennae that dance on the Tick’s head, Serafinowicz has his character’s oddball rhythms down pat. — Matthew Gilbert, Boston Globe
- If The Tick lightened up any more, it might float away, and we’d gladly go along for the ride. — Matt Roush, TV Guide Magazine
