Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):

It's the quirky, offbeat humor that makes this show such a pleasure (and something of a cult favorite) for teens and adults. It's fun viewing for early grade-schoolers and up. Kids younger than that won't get the large majority of the jokes in The Tick and may find the action frightening -- although in the end everyone walks, parachutes, or swims away unhurt.
