To each his own, I personally didn't enjoy it nearly as much as the first season finale. Tigerclaw's wrath episode was cool.

I enjoyed the 2 parter. Nice shout outs. Nice shout outs as a whole, really.
This season's been pretty good, with action humor and angst all up in the mix. Plot threads developed/solved. Characters followed up on. Supporting cast, to include a season 1 cat, brought in.Good stuff.

Something i like is Casey Jones not being equal to the turtles. He really shouldnt be, and i think thats been made clear.

^People have been gravitating to it quite a few episodes before Casey has, pretty much since The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman, especially if Tumblr posters are to be taken seriously.

Heh, taking tumblr posters seriously...



Anyway, with the season 2 finale probably just a couple episodes away, I can safely say that Season 2 has seriously upped the ante on everything I'd hoped it would have. Plenty more action with what looks like the animators putting in a lot more effort, Casey Jone's debut, some really badass new mutants (particularly Tiger Claw and Slash), some bigger plot points from the first season finally being touched upon and satisfyingly so in my opinion, some good character development for turtles who lacked a bit of it in the previous season (namely Raphael) humor and in-jokes that have only gotten better from the first season, Splinter proving on occasion why this is pretty much his most badass incarnation in the franchise, and there's really only two episodes I'd say I straight up didn't really like.

Anyway, I don't think there's been much discussion about Irma around here. She'd spent a lot of earlier episodes only being hinted at until "The Good, The Bad, and The Casey Jones". Since then, she's been in pretty much every opening scene involving April and Casey, and from what I can tell, she's been getting a little more sensitive and curious over being constantly ditched by April. She seems a bit sassier and snarkier than the '87 Irma as well, and her design overall has grown on me (I never found it bad, I just started off kinda neutral to it). Considering how close the season is to the finale, I doubt they're gonna do anything to introduce her to the Turtles right now, if that's gonna be an intention at all. I wouldn't be surprised if they do up her role a bit, a helluva lot of fans have been really fond of this Irma.

On an unrelated note, news has it that the series has both been renewed for a fourth season, and the Jason Biggs, who voices Leonardo, had to leave the show. I don't know who's been filling in for him in the recent episodes (Dominic something I believe), but from Season 3 onwards, Seth Green is reportedly going to be Leo's new voice. IGN or something should have the article.

I think I could handle Seth as Leo...gonna take some getting used to, but he's not bad. I wonder why they didn't go after Michael Sinterniklaas, the guy who voiced Leo in the '03 TMNT.

Also, the one thing I'm kinda miffed about is them having Bradford(Razar) but not Tokka.

thumb up

IMO, Season 2 started off okay (i.e. not as good as Season 1 did), but quickly became better than Season 1.

About the one complaint I have of Season 2 is that there just hasn't been enough of the Kraang and their hilarious conversations; and we need more appearances from Ice-Cream Kitty.

Am really glad this show is successful enough to have been renewed, again. Sucks that Jason Biggs left though.

~ Just watched the Kuro Kabuto episode. Is that pre-mutagen Bebop I spy in Zeck? Though I don't want the awesomeness that is Zeck to get mutated...

This latest body switch episode was fun.
The probe innuendo was gold. Casey's butt fixation, easily understandable. At least he was gentleman enough not to stare when April stretched in front of him, boobs just filling half the screen...!

Just finished the latest episode, Vengence is Mine, and damn, that was WHAM moment after WHAM moment to the very last second. The spoilers are honestly so serious that I'd have to say for now, you're gonna wanna watch the episode yourself. Overall, it's a helluva set-up for what the finale could offer on characterization.

After a day, I wanna just say that I think the most surprising part of the episode [SPOILER - highlight to read]: aside from the reveal at the end with Karai's mutation was Shredder's last line in the episode: [SPOILER - highlight to read]: "I will avenge my daughter."

I said this on one youtube vid, but that felt like a serious wham line in Shredder's case, because now he actually seems to have at least a source of some SMALL morality in Karai, more than likely because of her being the daughter of the woman he loved, and it also really draws a parallel with how Tang Shen was revealed to have died in Splinter's story in this same episode. I see the story arc for Shredder and Splinter really touching up on that in the future.

I love how Shredder simply refuses to take responsibility for his actions, especially when it comes to Splinter.

When people say love is blind it means more than just loving someone despite imperfections.
It means self blindness, too.
Also, everyone is the hero in their own story.
Shredder is one messed up guy....

Really good episode!

^If you ain't gonna bother explaning, I ain't gonna bother saying anything besides: Nope. This is the best TMNT in a visual medium since the first movie.

Agreed.
I have at least a passing acquaintance with all the toons. This is by far the best. The 2007 movie was in the ballpark, but this one has a sense of whimsy, and a freshness, owing to the de-aging (re-teening?) of the characters that puts it solidly ahead.

The last one was a filler episode but it was hilarious. I honestly hope that stereotypical Asian guy becomes a recurrent villain. Also the last battle (the part with Casey) was brilliantly choreographed.

Yeah i liked this episode.
Splinter seems really out of it, poor guy.
Nice to see April sort of acknowledging that Both Casey AND Donny like her.
I know enough to realize the line about Irma having power isnt a throwaway, so that'll be good.
Ho Shen's voice was familiar, but didnt catch the credits. Are there still Kraang underwater? Be weird if they found the dagger.
The power of pizza being showcased was terrific.

Thus entire episode was a parody of Big Trouble in Little China. Ho Chen was Lo Pan and voiced and modeled after James Hong the guy who played him in the movie. Purple Dragons then the turtles were the Three Storms. And April and Irma were the girls needed to turn him human again. They even did the scene where he catches the knife they throw at him. Great homage.

Yeah, i guess that made Casey Jack Burton! i was just wondering who the voice actor was, though.
Also, Mikey's post pizza burp...frikkin' classic.
