So I just randomly started watching this show after not knowing it existed and seeing it on Amazon. It's surprisingly good so I checked if there was an SA thread, only to find that apparently it stays really good and then gets cancelled. That sucks.

So I ended up watching this entire show this weekend. It was really great.

One thing that stood out to me is that a lesser show would have had Walter be bad, or have the elastic guy be trying to trick them into revealing the location of the lobster babies or something. It actually felt like the show was playing with expectations about this sort of thing.

edit: I think Overkill was probably responsible for like 50% of the times I laughed outloud.

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.

Absolutely agree with this. Watching this show made me realize that a lot of other shows have this comparatively "cynical" feel to them.
