TOUGH CHOICE? I'll make it easy for you. Aaron Sorkin without crack is like a day without sunshine -- and besides, The West Wing is, and ever shall be, so September 10th.

Instead, make a date with The Tick, which has a special airing tonight (Wednesday) at 9:30. (Another episode airs Thursday at 8:30)

What does TV Guide say? The bond between Arthur and the Tick is tested in a hilarious take on the perils of a superhero partnership. During a rooftop pursuit, the chums meet fellow crimefighters Fiery Blaze (Ron Perlman) and his sidekick Friendly Fire (Patrick Breen). “Your banter is immaculate,” marvels the Tick, who'd like to emulate their “well-oiled machine.” But Arthur is taken aback by Blaze's condescending manner toward Friendly, who introduces Arthur to a support group for disgruntled sidekicks.

What is TV Guide not telling us?
Tonight we get the series’ reimagining of Robert Smigel’s Ambiguously Gay Duo. This is the gayest, most homosexual episode of “The Tick” one could ever hope for. Friendly Fire’s costume could give Burt Ward the willies.
