Also, I thought this was a nice call back to the original series..

Is solid as hell. Actually, I think I like it better then even the old 80's version.


I love it. I'm watching it with my 5 year old. The things they changed, like Splinter being originally human, and April being a very "special" teenager. All make perfect sense and all work sooooo well. It's still a kids' show but they put some thought into it.

I won't go as far as to say as it is better than the original cartoon, but it is the best one to date since.

Yes, I'm aware that the TMNT started out as more mature in the comics, but unlike Batman which has become defined by a similar origin, TMNT will always be defined by the 90s cartoon.

I love this show so much and I really want the first season to be out already so I can watch it in order instead of out of order on Teletoon or YTV or whatever it's on. D:

Meh. Give me the old school Turtles when all the bandanas were the same color, and after the fights the blood on the alley walls was splashed all the way up to the second floor.

Oh it's better. I can;t barely watch the old ones really.

However, Turtles Forever was frickin great. It even should make Comic book fans happy as it even has the original, non-color turtles.

RAPH FOR LIFE!

Leo = too preachy
Donny = too nerdy
Mikey = too silly

You can never get enough sarcastic badassness.

Plus, as was mentioned, the original black-and-white series was dark as hell, and Raph was the darkest of them all.

I agree with the idea that Raph would either die first (as a result of his impulsiveness/bloodlust) or be the last turtle standing (probably even more messed up psychologically than he's ever been).

I tried watching it the other week.

I just couldn't get past the animation style.


Saw my first episode with my 4 year old son the other day.
I was almost exactly his age when the original cartoon was in it's heyday.

I thought it was a fine cartoon. Leatherhead was a cool character. And splinter busting out some aikido on the big monster was pretty badass.

Please tell me that the live action Turtles TV series I have avoided on netflix like the plague...
 
2013-08-12 03:28:25 PM  

stuhayes2010: Not really news, I remember finding a Turtles graphic novel in the early nineties.  It was all black and white, and very dark in content.


It might be the thing that the TMNT originated from. Apparently they began as a B&W comic that was a satire of content from the time.

Makes perfect sense really. They're teenage, mutants, AND ninjas. Then they're turtles, which was done for sillyness.

Wait, so you clicked on a link that said it was about sad pictures of a turtle who is a ninja and want to act all "who click this shiat" about it?

Because irony.

[cdn.shortlist.com image 615x349]

These two, I think, are the better of the 4 due to seeing the other turtles colors in the actual picture. The other two could just be Mikie or Raph feeling the pain after being beaten but all the Turtles made it out.


Not sure I like the Leo one... the fact that he's down  AFTER wrapping his brothers' masks around his arms is a bit weird... if he were being stoic or something, it might work, but as it is, it looks like he's struggling to get up right after the fight, but that would suggest that he wrapped the masks on during, or something.  Unless it was episodic, and after each fell he took the masks, then hunted the villain down, but it doesn't signify some big final battle.

  Don's is the only one that I like and appreciate for what it's supposed to be.  I could easily see him walking away, leaving his bo and the masks flying like flags in the wind, as a marker or shrine to the price and emptiness of victory (assuming that by one surviving, whomever they fought was defeated)

The new show is fantastic.  It's written well, the fight scenes are choreographed beautifully, and it's full of easter eggs from the old toons, comics and movies... the people making it are definitely hardcore tmnt fans.  Best action toon on right now, IMO.

The saddest thing? Clearly it would be the siamese elephants I once saw. They were joined at the trunk.

In the original comics, they killed people all the time.  Raphael was a borderline psychopath.

Then they'd make the elephants stand on their hind legs, and stretch their trunks real tight.  Then, this monkey would come out, with a parasol....

hammer85:
I agree, I love the movie and the new TV series (the fight scenes were awesome in both, notably turtles vs shred and splinter vs shred in the series and leo v raph in the movie).

The Donnie/April thing really creeps me out though as a huge Don fan.


Are you kidding?  I think its the best damn thing about the show, and I also speak as someone who can count Donatello as his favorite character.

I'm no shipper, but it does add a lot to Donnie's character, easily making him now the most complex and interesting of the turtles.  From high school age on up, we've all been where he is crushing on a girl, so its very easy to sympathize and identify with him.  Plus the crush subplot also added a lot of great humor and interaction among the turtles,with the others often ragging on Donnie about his crush but then turning around at times and trying to help him succeed with April.  Very much like real life brothers.

Besides, they are just a goddam adorable couple sometimes
