Tick vs. The Terror
Tick vs. The Terror was originally filmed with the intent
to air it as episode #2, but Fox and the producers were
unhappy with the original version of it and asked that it
be rewritten and filmed and thus aired later in the series.
This is unfortunate for three reasons; first and foremost
because by being moved to the end of the run The Tick vs.
The Terror was never actually aired in the United States
at all. Secondly, airing The Funeral was never intended
to air second in the show; and when it did many people pointed
out continuity problems that arose because this episode
wasn't in between. Finally, the real shame is that we'll
probably never see the original version of this episode;
we'll only see the toned-down version that was finally aired
is, in my opinion, the funniest of the Live Tick episodes.
The Tick is clueless as always, but in this episode it works
in a way that is absent in most of these episodes. Although
Armin Shimerman wasn't tall and thin like The Terror from
the comics and cartoon, his portrayal was actually pretty
good; I was pleasantly surprised.
