TMNT Season Finale

Did anybody else watch the one hour second season finale to the new TMNT cartoon last night?

It was AMAZING. It felt like a series finale! It was dark and violent and pretty showed the end of the world. The Krang staged a full scale invasion of NYC with the help of Shredder.



I've always enjoyed this show for its CGI and its sense of humor, but never before have they gotten so dark and serious and I loved it. Well done.

Dear lord. I thought I was imagining it but I just looked it up; Krang Prime is voiced by Roseanne Barr!!! That's hilarious

Yeah, that ever so slightly irked me. Earlier in the season, in the episode featuring the return of the Rat King, Irma talked rather fondly about rats (before everything got "crazy"). That made me wonder when, or if she ever got to actually meet Splinter, she might actually find him, uh, "intriguing" rather than repulsive. But the "twist" presented last night blew that potential scenario out of the water...dang it.

Sincerely,

Bill

She fled with the Turtles to her house in the woods, just like in the middle of the first live action movie. Only this time it's because aliens have conquered NYc

Re: TMNT Season Finale

Funny, that's what came to my mind as well, how it roughly parallels the first LA movie. Haven't seen it in ages, but wasn't one of the Turtles badly injured (effectively in a coma) in the movie as well? Probably Raph' given his hot headed nature.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: TMNT Season Finale

Actually, I think the "retreat to April's family farm in a VW Bus" was strait out of an early comic before the 90 film. I'm not 100% certain though.

Non the less, it was a great episode. I can't wait for season three to start, with rumors of some more familiar characters making an appearance.

Re: TMNT Season Finale

I'm confused. Last Friday was the season finale... but the next season's premiere airs this Friday? Isn't there normally supposed to be, like, a hiatus between seasons? Although I guess I'm glad we don't have to wait for the continuation.

Anyway, I liked the previous 2-parter better in some ways; the visit to Dimension X was deliriously imaginative and cements this version of TMNT as the best-designed 3D-animated show on TV, although I already knew that. But this was one hell of an intense, powerful finale. The closing scenes were so solemn that they felt like a season finale on a prime-time drama.

Gilbert Gottfried as a Kraang was kind of odd. Why did he talk differently from the other Kraang, who are known as Kraang?

And yes, I think the retreat to the farmhouse is from the comics, since it was in the 2003 animated series, which was very faithful to the comics until its last couple of seasons.

I checked Wikipedia, and I'm surprised to learn that Jason Biggs left as the voice of Leonardo 7 episodes ago, after an episode aired in June. Since then he's been played by Dominic Catrambone. I didn't even notice the change. Starting this week, though, the role of Leonardo will be played by Seth Green. I think that's a change I will notice. I wonder if they'll lampshade it. "Man -- Leo was hurt so bad his voice changed!"

Re: TMNT Season Finale

They pushed back the end of season two to add "build up" for the film, I guess.

Doesn't really make sense since season two would have ended months before the film, but that's what they said.

Re: TMNT Season Finale

I couldn't believe they weren't airing episodes in the month that the movie came out. Would have been a good way to build the audience.

That's a great price but I'll insert the obligatory 'it should be on blu-ray' right now.
