What really sets Tick apart from other comedy is that it's very heart-forward, loving, positive comedy. It never demeans or mocks, it always uplifts. That's *really* hard to do.

Ben Edlund is one of the best writers on television and the reason Supernatural got fifteen seasons. I still think that the "little wooden boy and the belly of love" is one of the top ten half hour television comedies ever written, right up there with the Tiny Town episode of Arrested Development but a decade prior.

A weaker written show would’ve had Dot make fun of Overkill’s dance party. It sucks that the shows not picking up for s2, but as far as last notes go, this was a nice one.

Some Amazon exec watched the introduction of Overkill and was like “why isn’t the whole show like this?”
