  • So the Tick must learn how to fight evil with a handicap. But then, how do you maintain a handicap when you don’t have any HANDS!

    This is probably one of the creepier episodes of the Tick I am ever likely to see. I can’t say that it is laugh-out-loud funny, but there is something primordially distasteful and yet comical at seeing the Tick with no arms. The highlight of this episode is when the Tick is brooding on top of his apartment building reminiscing of all the fun times he used to have back when he had arms. I also enjoy the fact that nobody in the City realized that the fake Tick was…well, fake. This episode is worth checking out for the sheer absurdity of it all, but I don’t think many will find it to be altogether funny.
