    There's a story about Barry Sonnenfeld (creator of MIB and Get Shorty) in Sound and Vision and there's a picture of the Tick and the Moth guy as well as it identified as the Superhero Sitcom. Any am I missing this as to it being showned on t.v. I use to watch the animated series then it stopped and I was hoping I wasn't missing any thing on the tube at some weird time slot.

    The live-action Tick was dropped two years ago. It is out on DVD in a small box set.

    You are a perfect example of how poorly Fox marketed this series.

    I've seen all the live-action Tick episodes. It started out a little rocky, but by the end of its 8 episodes, it was gaining a foothold and embracing the absurdity of the comic books quite well as it transitions to a live-action show.

    Think Seinfeld with Superheroes. One of many bright sparks that dimmed on Fox. Pick up the DVD set, it's a good deal.

    I'll be getting it in a few weeks.
    I would love to have season box sets of the cartoon too. I hope Disney realizes what gold they have in the animated TV stuff when Gargoyles: Season 1 comes out.
