Sorry if this was already discussed, I searched but did not see anything about it. Am I the only one watching this show? So far so good IMHO :mrgreen:

My son and me love this show. Just sucks that got to wait until season 2 for Casey Jones.

We're talking about it a bit in the TMNT toy thread, but it probably needs it's own thread.

While I like a lot of it (the fight scenes are well done), other parts veer way too kiddie for me. Mikey's very annoying and Donny's gap tooth really annoys me. On the plus side, I think Raph and Leo's personalitie are well done, and this is the best Splinter I've seen. He actually teaches the Turtles and the lessons actually make sense (really liked the "fair fight" lesson).

The mutant of the week plot is getting old fast, however.

More Foot, less mutants, please.

The deal breaker for me will be how Shredder is portrayed.

Promising. Very promising. Not too crazy about the streamlined origins but at least the Turtles aren't space aliens. My favorite line was when Raph says to Mikey "What are you, an idiot? Let me rephrase: You are an idiot."

And it's good to have a sarcastic, snarky version of Splinter. He has been portrayed exactly the same in every single incarnation (even the Turtles movie Turtles Forever acknowledged this) and it's nice to have a fresh take.
