My point is that kenzo lost his shit to comical proportions when the topic was brought up. Talk about taking topics WAY too seriously.

Sports are a little more understandable to get worked up about than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

You can't go into a thread on this forum without someone being worked up about something. Well, not very many.

I never said anyone was getting worked up, just that the debate on this topic was being taken way too seriously. Ninja Turtles = art? :lol:

That was my fault, I said worked up. In my mind taking shit seriously and to the point of argument = getting worked up.

That's irrelevant. You might as well bring up Bram Stoker's Dracula to a Twilight fan. The version of TMNT I still hold dear to my heart the 1990 movie, and I can care less what else happens with the property. Any TMNT stuff they do in the future isn't going to be for me, it's going to be for today's kids that probably have never even seen that movie. . . or in your case, kids that don't even know TMNT started out as some indie B&W comic book.


Well, seeing as how Bram Stoker's Dracula is as much a bastardization of the source material as Twilight is, I really don't see your point.

I really can't stand the animation style they keep using in this cartoon reboots, I sat down and watched the new G.I. Joe Cartoon one night and wanted to poke my eyes out with the nearest sharp object. You would think binging them back in their original animation style would make them easier to market to both adults who grew up with the cartoons and to children whose parents would expose them to it based on their childhood experiences with them. I had my nephew who is 8 sit down and watch the original G.I. Joe cartoon and he loved it but yet turned his nose up at the new one.

Outside of the two multipart events, the old Sunbow G.I. Joe series has not aged well at all. The new series, while a sharp departure in art style, is reverent to the source material in writing and characters while striking out in its own direction.

I think his only gripe is the animation though. As long as it isn't shitty CGI I'll be fine.

No complaints about this at all aside from the typical 3D animation woes (mainly that the show looks very sparse) and some of the anime touches are overdone.

Only four episdoes in, and this series has already surpassed the original 90's series for me. It pays respect to what's come before, takes the best elements from all the previous incarnations, and makes some interesting changes that could pay off in the future.

What I like:

1) The updated theme song
2) Excellent voice acting
3) Amazing action/fighting sequences
4) Donnie's crush on April

Shouldn't be hard to do since that cartoon was ass. Go back and watch it now, and it's almost as unwatchable as Transformers.

I watched the first couple seasons of it and it's not as bad as you're saying. It's super dumb but more funny to adult me than cool like it was to kid me.

I couldn't even give you a vague timeline of what all happened throughout the course of the show. I'm sure I grew up enough to jump off the bandwagon long before it went off the air.

More on topic though, this new series is pretty amazing. The first two episodes were pretty rote creature features with boring mutant monsters, but the latest one finally introduced Shredder and the Foot and had a some really rad scenes of the turtles actually being ninjaesque. Love all the sibling banter in this show a lot, and that's been strong since the opening episode.

Like I said before, the series creators are going back to the roots and pulling the best elements. The last episode was proof of that.

This show is fricken great. Continually. This is easily my favorite take on the turtles.

It's really making me want to try watching Clone Wars again. I tried twice and made it about 12-15 episodes into the first season both times before I got really bored but I hear that show gets really great. There's just so damn much of it by this point I don't know if I have the commitment in me.
