    This episode is much improved over the Amazon pilot, which, to me, fell flat. Dot is a great inclusion and they changed Arthur's back story a bit and reworked the first episode into a much neater story. This was a solid start to what might be a promising series to tick fans. It's hard to pull off the Tick's silliness and simple-mindedness in a way that works. The Cartoon did it. Patrick Warburton didn't. Peter Serafinowicz does a better job than Patrick, but he still comes across as just silly sometimes, but it's the best live-actor Tick so far. He was funny when bullets were bouncing off him.

    As a tick fan, I say, solid start and nice tight episode.

    "The Tick" is a half-hour superhero short film that was released by Amazon about a week ago as a project that may be taken up for a new series if enough people in the audience love this pilot episode. The director is Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, who is known for his work with Christopher Nolan, and the screenplay comes from Ben Edlund, the man who actually invented The Tick a long time ago. There have been other shows in the past about this hero in a blue costume already. I think Peter Serafinowicz is doing fine here for the most part with the comedy, but sadly his co-lead Griffin Newman did not convince me at all, be it either in terms of drama, which was his task in here, or his rare clumsy attempts at delivering comedy. He felt entirely interchangeable with any random young actor I must say. The ending indicates that that the makers weren't sure either how to go on with his character or the actor if the show gets picked up, so it's all possible into every direction. Overall, I must say I did not enjoy these 30 minutes as much as I enjoyed JCVD/JCVJ and I probably would not watch a series based on The Tick unless it improves dramatically compared to this prologue here. I don't recommended the watch. Whoopi Goldberg's cameo felt pretty pointless and she was just in here because she is Whoopi Goldberg, but Jackie Earle Haley may make a memorable villain. I truly hope they can step things up if this one is really turned into a series. The potential is there.
