Review: Nickelodeon TMNT "I, Monster

IMonster 2012 Nickelodeon gave us a great ride with their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.  As we had 12 amazing episodes of action, comedy, heart, and pizza.  We watched as the Turtles ventured to the surface for the first time, had their first taste of pizza and first real fight.  We saw the Turtles learn to fight as a team, make new friends and see the danger of facing the Shredder.  We were on the edge of our seats as Dogpound and Fishface would work to destroy the Turtles, the Kraang kept making more mutants and Shredder beat the Turtles down.  Then we had a break, weeks with no new episodes of TMNT as everyone kept asking when are they returning.

Review Nickelodeon TMNT "Mousers Attack"

Review Nickelodeon TMNT "Panic in the Sewers"

Shredder has shown himself to the Turtles!  The Turtles survived that first battle!  And now Shredder has two mutants working for him.  Nickelodeon has been serving up some amazing TMNT action!  Their fight scenes are as promised, fully packed with action and comedy, and while the characters are light hearted at times the plot is thick.  So after spoiling us last week with three packed adventures all in one episode, how are they to follow that?  Well the new episode, which was originally listed on Wikipedia as “Mojo Rising” is now titled “Panic in the Sewers”.   Does the title really fit what we see in the episode?

Review Nickelodeon TMNT "The Gauntlet"

Ever think a title for a tv show episode gave too much away with the episode itself?  Well in this case Nickelodeon must of felt that way, as the original released title for this episode was changed from “Enter Shredder” to “The Gauntlet”.  Enter Shredder, a title that would have everyone excited, though would also be a plot spoiler.  One could see why the title was chosen just from the thrill that comes along with it.  Here is my thoughts on this really amazing episode.

Review: Nickelodeon TMNT "Never Say Xever"

Since the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has started up a lot people have felt some of the lessons in the show has been a bit harsh.  With Splinter talking about “causing lots of harm” and “fight to win not fairness”.  So when this weeks episode aired, “Never say Xever”, one had to wonder what Splinter’s thoughts was going to be when Leonardo let’s the Purple Dragon’s run away from a fight?  Is Splinter going to agree with Raphael or confirm Leonardo’s actions?  That’s just one of the subjects that I will cover in this week’s review of the new Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series.

Review: Nickelodeon "Monkey Brain"

In the past the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been seeing monkeying around, with different monkey type villains, from the over sized chimp in the original cartoon series to a talking ape and a Gorilla in Ninja Turtles the Next Mutation.  Nickelodeon is no exception to this rule, as we go into the newest episode "Monkey Brains" where Donatello and April discover a Mutant Monkey that knows how to kick some shell.  Here's my thoughts of this episode and the progress that the series is making with it's 7th episode.

Review Nick TMNT : MetalHead

Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has been great at bringing back characters that TMNT fans of the previous series would enjoy like Baxter Stockman, Shredder, and in away even Krang is here.  Thanks to panels at conventions we’ve seen that other characters we care about like LeatherHead and RatKing are coming to this new series.  This week’s episode brought us another character from the past, Metalhead.  In the original cartoon Metalhead was made by Krang, and programed with the Turtle’s personalities to attack them.  The Turtles win and take over Metalhead.  So now comes the fun of seeing how Metalhead is made for this whole new take on the TMNT.

Review: TMNT "I think his name is Baxter Stockman"

Every version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a handful of amazing characters that keep coming back.  One of which was the second villain the Turtles ever faced, Baxter Stockman.  He originally appeared in issue 2 of Mirage Volume 1 as April’s crazy boss who created an army of Mousers.  The Turtles then fought him in the original cartoon series episode “A Thing About Rats” when Baxter is hired by the Shredder.  Which brings him into Archie, 4Kids and even the Dreamwave comics.  He was even used in the original version of the Coming Out of Their Shells tour.  The only two medias that did not use Baxter Stockman was the Movies and the Next Mutations, two areas which brought in their own scientists for their stories.  Now Nickelodeon takes a crack at bringing Baxter Stockman to their series in the episode “I think his name is Baxter Stockman” here is a brief layout and my thoughts on their take of Baxter Stockman.

Review: Nickelodeon TMNT "New Friend, Old Enemy

The Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has went well with the first three episodes giving us the feel of the world and characters.  Though as many has noticed, the Foot has not fought or seen the Turtles face to face.  With only one small look at them, fans have been itching to see them battle.  The fourth episode aired this last Saturday granting that wish from the fans, as the Foot has now started to make their move.  Can the Turtles handle themselves in their first battle with the Foot?  And will Nickelodeon bring the strong Ninja action that fans are hoping to see?  Those were the questions coming into this episode, now we can answer our thoughts and look back to “New Friend, Old Enemy”
