could have been much better
1 February 2018 | by ali-najafyiSee all my reviews

Its a dark comedy, and not a great one at that. The characters are not so shallow as usual, in fact they are quite fun, considering it's a superhero show(I mostly find super hero characters to be the most shallow types). The story telling however, tries too hard, to be a hybrid of dark comedy and super hero genre. It doesn't move forward and it doesn't explain much(I wonder if the writers thought everyone has watched the original cartoon). The main character's initial pivotal decision making takes 6 episodes! juts for the sake of adding up the number of episodes, which is incredibly torturous. Acting from Peter Serafinovicz who plays the Tick and Jakie Haley's who plays the Terror is superb, and production values are nice. If the writers didn't take themselves so seriously and the story had moved forward more fluidly, this could have been a superb show. Still, enjoyable to watch.
