Critic Reviews for The Tick: Season 1

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (16)

In just 10 episodes, Warburton proves why his deadpan, physically intimidating portrayal of the character has endured.

June 29, 2018 | Full Review…

If you're looking for a new kind of sitcom to make you laugh, try... or Patrick Warburton's true-blue comic-book antics on Fox's The Tick.

June 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Our sense is that this show hadn't quite perfected its rhythm but was well on its way.

June 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The hulking actor savors the physically demanding role and carries himself with witty ease. While wearing a tight, absurd, blue costume with dancing antennas, he does some of the best acting this fall.

June 28, 2018 | Full Review…

I love the idea of a superhero with a great big heart and a tiny little brain, and I love Patrick Warburton's fearless performance in the title role of this odd new live-action comedy.

January 31, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The series still has the same parody humor from its predecessors, but with a grounded aesthetic, we get to see a more mature take that in no way hinders the character.
