like to say that this episode (#4) marked a turning point
in the new series and they will all be great from here on
out, but I don't know yet. At this point, the show is more
focused on myopia than villainy to create conflict.
premise of this episode is that The
Tick needs to get his superhero license. Of course,
to do that he has to know his real name and date of birth
(etc) and he doesn't have a clue. There is a good scene
where he reports himself to the police as a missing person,
though, and he ends up on a milk carton which was pretty
in all, though, I wish they would introduce some new elements
into the show. It is really more like any other sitcom with
people sitting around bantering in a diner than The Tick
I expected given the comics and cartoons.
minor trend I noticed is continued here; the heroes are
all lawbreakers to some extent. So far we've seen Bat
Manuel with thousands of unpaid parking tickets, Captain
Liberty ticketed for not cleaning up after her dog and
later busted for posing nude, and in this episode we see
Batmanuel stealing newspapers out of the machine. Maybe
Tick will fight them instead...
