Tick, The (2001) *

The Tick is a fictional character created by cartoonist Ben Edlund in 1986 as a newsletter mascot. He is an absurdist spoof of comic book superheroes. After its creation, the character spun off into an independent comic book series in 1988, and gained mainstream popularity through an animated TV series on Fox Broadcasting in 1994. A short-lived live-action TV series, video game and various merchandise have also been based on the character.

Scorpion (2014) *

You’d think the US bombing Syria and Iraq was the worst thing that’s happened this month, but this show is worse. This new CBS show left me wanting to hit myself repeatedly in the head with a ball peen hammer. It’s as exciting as watching people peer into their iPhone. If you don’t feel like hitting yourself in the head with a ball peen hammer, then you could watch the Scorpion pilot, but I would suggest you do neither. Remember, I warned you.
