Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012

I was surprise to find no thread about it so I made one. So far I love how they combine the 80s cartoon with the 2000s darker tone. Though CGI will take some time getting used to.

Not sure what to think. Still think the 2000 one was the best though that could probably be a bias against the CGI that's used.

It's still just the first two episodes that have been released, so we'll have to see how it turns out. I liked the premiere though. Those Kraang were a good source of humour with their language redundancies, though I was surprised to see the creators combining Krang and the Utroms into the Kraang, as well as Hamato Yoshi and Splinter's backstories.

The CGI was also pretty good, but I still prefer the look of the 2003 series. The Shredder also does not look half as menacing as he did in the 2003 series.

Either way, as far as it being an adaptation to the TMNT mythos goes, it is off to a good start IMO.

After todays new episode im sold! I have always been a turtle fan. As a kid I loved the originals. It took a few episodes for it to get going but im content with it!

I loved that they learned the "we seek victory not fairness"!

Watched 3 episodes. Like it so far. Reminds me of Teen Titans - fun stories that end with valuable life lessons. Kinda kiddish but serious when it counts. Hope it gets even better as the show progresses, needs more characters and more chemistry. Also Splinter is effin hilarious, I LOLed several times.

PS Always thought Greg Cipes (Beast Boy, Iron Fist) would make an awesome Mikey.

I love how they differentiate between joking/normal and serious mode when they go white eyed.

And yes, Splinter is hilarious. I love his little quotes.

"The first rule of being a ninja is "do no harm". Unless you intend to do harm, then do looooooots of harm!!

Or when he was talking to Leo about Leadership.

Leo: So you'd have let any of us be leader if we asked?
Splinter:...Yes.
Leo: Even Mikey?
Splinter.....Of course not.

Lol yeah. Its even funnier because of what he said 10 seconds before that.

Splinter: There are NO such things as Right and Wrong.
Leo: So you'd let Mikey be our leader?
Splinter: Ofcourse not. That'd be wroooooong... LOL

Overall, I'm liking the show.

I'm loving the character development, and the way none of the personalities feel forced.. The 2003 toon was great, but the turtles there were modeled pretty heavily on the 1980's toon, and their personalities felt a lot more stilted, like they weren't real people but actors saying lines.. Even little touches like Leo and Raph banging fists after ninja sneaking across rooftops immerses you in the characters.

I'm also loving Splinter. Best Splinter ever, no question. big grin

But the "Anime-esq" touches, I could do without. Exaggerated tears and sweatdrops just don't work in 3d..

Also, as a Mikey fan, I'm hoping down the line he gets to beat one of the top dogs again, like he did to Raph in the 2003 show. I mean, Raph fans got to see him beat Leo straight up, how about giving us Mikey fans something too.. (Ok, so Mikey did beat evil Chuck Norris.... wink )

He didn't just beat him. He beat him with a move he taught him, that he hadn't even known for more than a day.

*Nods* Hints at him being potentially the best fighter of the group, if he took his training more seriously.

Kind of makes him the Ken Masters of the Turtles, I guess.

To be fair, that Kata Mikey used to take down Bradford was pretty uber, as it was able to take down someone far more skilled than all the 4 Turtles combined.

But yeah, Mikey's probably going to be the most agile & fastest one out the 4, again. Raph's still the strongest one, the best fighter, and he's snarkier than ever. Leo's the leader and strategist, and Donny's the smart one.

So far, I like it more than the 2003 series. The voice-acting is much better, humour is more light-hearted, and the Turtles all have their own quirks.

Agreed. Him being taller and younger also contributes IMO.

Meh, you get used to it. After all, the Turtles become white-eyed when in combat, as a nod to other series', so the other stuff is alright I suppose.

Also, the show must be doing well. They just renewed it for a second season.

I really like all the characters' personalities and sense of humor, but I'm not to keen on the whole Donnie/April thing they're doing, and based on the last few episodes, .thats going to be their biggest running joke/plot device..

Gauntlet was awesome. Pretty dark for a kids show and compared to other episodes. This show reminds me of Teen Titans in a way.

Splinter yet again doesn't disappoint.

Mikey: This is serious, I'm gonna go get Master Splinter.
Leo: You really don't have to-
Mikey: -NINJA SMOKEBOMB-
Splinter: -half a second later- Michelangelo said you wanted to see me?

The moments where Splinter humourously and casually pwns his sons are amongst the best moments in the series.

Anyway, gais, favourite turtle, and favourite character?
