It bothers me, probably more than it should, that the flag pole didn't go "wub wub wub" after he grabbed it.

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

So, the first season seems to have dropped. I found it entertaining, but it was very, very short. Pilot+5 episodes, about 22 minutes each with start and end credits eating up quite a bit of time.
[edit] Season 1 part 1 has dropped. The next 6 episodes will be released later in the fall. Still felt too damn short.

The Tick has always been tiny tiny. It's supposed to make up for that by being packed to the gills with jokes the way old Zucker Abrams Zucker work was, and only the cartoon seems to have pulled that off. Budget animation is better suited to quick editing than live action is, and even these limited special effects are costing them a lot for limited oomph.

It feels short because it IS short. Not a lot happens in an episode, either textually or intertextually.

if at last you do succeed, never try again

I enjoyed it quite a bit and can't wait for the second half of the season.

Just FYI, Amazon released episodes 7 - 12 of Season 1 last week.

Season 2 releases this Friday (April 04)

Reviews are positive, and can be summed up as, "More of the same, but in a really good way."

I would like to thank Vladimir Putin for ensuring that every member of the NPR news staff has had to say "Pussy Riot" on the air multiple times.

If you haven't watched season 2 but liked Season 1, watch Season 2 immediately. I just binged it and it's great. I am SO GODDAMN PISSED that this is cancelled. They finished the season story arc well and had a great setup for at least 1-2 more good seasons. FUCK.
