    Ben Edlund's character of The Tick, and the stories he writes, are brilliantly funny.

    This series is really good when the episodes are written by Edlund himself, but the other episodes don't compare favourably, and feel inferior when you watch them.

    My suggestion is for the studio to release a DVD box-set called "Ben Edlund's The Tick" or "The Tick Classics" or even just "The Best of The Tick". This would include only the episodes which Edlund wrote or co-wrote (as well as # 15 "Alone Together" which was written by Christopher McCulloch, who worked with Edlund on the original comic - also, that episode is also made reference to later in an Edlund story).

    This set would contain:

    Episodes # 1 - 10, 13 - 16, 19, 21, 23 - 24, 26 - 30, 32 - 34 & 36

    It could also contain the episodes he wrote for The Tick [2001] as extras

    I know that completists will want to have everything, but I think this streamlined set would be more representative of what The Tick was supposed to be about - plus there's no need to worry about the Cindy Crawford episode because it wasn't one of Edlund's stories anyway.

    I'd rather just have the other seasons of The Tick to be released on DVD then to have an alternative DVD release.
