Remember this?

So, I don't know who all will remember this show. I sure didn't. In fact, I had never heard of it, except for the cartoon version, until Mike brought it up one day last month. Then, tonight, he found it on Netflix instant view. Can you tell we love Netflix? We watch a lot of movies at our house now that we only get basic cable. Aaah, how I miss DirecTv and the plus package with the DVR.

The show was called The Tick. It starred Patrick Warburton as Tick. He is hilarious. You might recall him from The Emperor's New Groove (Kronk), Kim Possible, and even Family Guy (Joe Swanson). The Tick was made in 2001, but looks like something out of the late 80s, early 90s. It is hilarious! I have not laughed so hard as I did while watching the first few episodes tonight in a long while.

In addition to Patrick Warburton, it has Nestor Carbonell as Batmanuel. You might remember him from Suddenly Susan and Kim Possible. Liz Vassey as Captain Liberty, who has recently been a rather prominent "lab rat" in CSI on CBS. And David Burke as Aurthur, who has apparently been in a lot of tv shows that I have either never heard of or never cared to watch.

All in all, it is a pretty good show so far. You definitely should check it out at your local Blockbuster or Hollywood video, if they carry it, or on Netflix, if you have an account. It is definitely worth a view, and a couple of laughs.
