The Pilot

The Tick vs. The Red Scare is the pilot episode for the new, live-action Tick series on Fox. It initially premiered on November 1st, 2001 to mixed reviews. Many of the die-hard Tick fans loved the show, while many of the 'normals' didn't get many of the jokes.

In essence, the start of the show was pretty good. It managed to introduce all of the main characters (The Tick, Arthur, Batmanuel, and Captain Liberty) and get in a villain (The Red Scare). Unforutnately, the show wasn't very polished and therefore there were some moments that were painfully unfunny...

The basic premise of the episode it that The Tick is new to the city and while he's stumbling around looking for evil he hears what he believes to be a damsel in distress. The damsel turns out to be Arthur who is about to be Metcalfed by a group of Russians seeking to overthrow the U.S. Postal system by setting their evil killer robot The Red Scare loose on an unsuspecting Postmaster General. Tick manages to thwart their evil plans in front of a backdrop of Batmanuel and Captian Liberty being distracted by each other.
