  • The first episode to dissapoint me

    A Kid named Charles, the Brainchild(Who allowed people to see his brain by putting it in a dome attached to his head) tries to destroy the world with a device that will make the moon crash into the earth. I didn't like this episode, I was stupid and I was dissapointed. Brainchild is the most annoying villian on the show. He's always talking about how smart he is and how he will be the ruler of the world, so annoying. Although I did like Skippy, his robotic dog whose original brain is attached to his head,(He had a hobby of chasing car, that were coming towards him)like Brainchild. I also like how Brainchilds parents are talking to the Tick and Arthur about being good parents while he's making the moon crash into the earth. Other that all that stuff I mention this is a pretty lousy episode. Atleast we it gives us Coach Fussel Lament, That was a much better episodemoreless
  • Some kids like to show off their athletic ability. Some like to show off their baseball card collection. Brainchild likes to show off his transparent skullcap and cybernetic dog!

    There’s not a lot worth mentioning with this one. The Tick Versus Brainchild will illicit some mild laughs, but there is nothing here that I would call knee-slapping funny. The most comedic aspects to this episode revolve around Brainchild’s parents taking the politically correct route of trying to understand why their son feels the need to make the moon smash into the Earth. Even the Tick feels that what the lad needs is nothing more than a good ole fashioned, heartfelt hug. It’s a nice element of social satire, that I’m quite frankly surprised to see in a show like the Tick. Aside from that, this episode is more or less filler material.moreless
