This show was ok. Also, with studios digging up more obscure 90's comics, I wonder how long before The Maxx makes a return.

well, the tick isn't nearly as obscure as the maxx, even though the demographic is pretty close. if you surveyed the audience of any of The Tick shows, there being more than one, I bet they would equal in exact number to the same number of people surveyed for The Maxx of who watched Liquid Television. meanwhile the rest of the tick's total audience numbers would be 10x the previous poll.
and they're not really "digging up" as the mass appeal of a bumbling friendly costumed anything right now is exactly in line from the success of the most recent Thor.
speaking of Lobo..

I actually got hooked on the first episode. I never got into "The Tick" in the past because it was a comedy and I wanted superhero show. This is actually a superhero show, with violence and comedy elements ala Deadpool.

So far it's not so bad, but I need to see more episodes to make a better judgement.

My only problem with it is that it's been impacted by modern PC culture. American Maid is now Captain Liberty and Der Fledermaus is now Batmanuel. I guess it is just too offensive to associate the word "maid" with a female and we have to have diversity for the sake of diversity.

EDIT: Actually, that was from the last live series, I never watched that. I thought these were new characters in this series. As long as they stay away from the PC, I'm fine.

But that was the joke! One of the great crimes of political correctness is that it ruins good jokes.

Well, They made an Aeon Flux movie, which is just as obscure as The Maxx.

A Lobo movie? I'm down for that.

This is not a case of modern PC culture, it's that they don't have the rights to all the side characters, hence the new (stupid) names. I don't recall where I read this, as it was a few months ago; maybe IMDB?
