But then I watched the first episode and fell in love all over again. It made me feel the way I did all those years ago growing up with the Turtles. Except, unlike the 1987 cartoon, which hasn't aged well, this show looks and feels fresh. The 87 cartoon was corny and the animation was often inconsistent at best. By contrast, the writing for this series is actually pretty decent for a cartoon. Each episode is self-contained, but I like how the build upon a larger story with some continuous characters and elements. The action is well paced but also allows time for character moments. Best of all, the show is genuinely funny. Not goofy, corny, "I can't believe I'm watching this" funny, but some real "laugh out load" moments.
I think this show has potential to revive the Ninja Turtles franchise. I dare say it might even be better than the 1987 series in some ways. Definitely recommended.

Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo continue their quest to find their new sixteen-year-old human friend's, April O'Neil, scientist father, Dr. Kirby O'Neil, who has been kidnapped by the brain-shaped aliens in robotic suits, known as the Kraang. While their master Splinter isn't training them in the sewers (where they live), they are battling the Purple Dragon, the crazy Baxter Stockman, mousers, other mutants, and the Shredder, whom the turtles finally meet and lets just say it isn't a Kodak moment. Their only new ally is an oversize mutant alligator named Leatherhead.
After two cartoon series, a live-action series, four movies (soon to be five), countless comic books (which the franchise is based on) and toys, you would think the franchise would become repetitive. Surprisingly, the third series is a refreshing take on the turtles, using CGI animation (which I'm normally against), well-written scripts, and a talented voice cast.
There seems to be some confusion among fans about a missing episode "I, Monster" from this release. The DVDs are going by the original production order, aka - the order the episodes were made. "I, Monster" was the 13th episode aired, but it was the 14th episode made, therefore it will appear on the two-disc "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Ultimate Showdown" coming to DVD this October.
I know there are many haters for any type of reboot, where some say "They destroyed my childhood." I guess people don't like change, and they like to compare anything to the original. I have to admit I shared the exact same thoughts when I first watched the new series, but I was a fan after the end of the first episode. The episodes on Enter Shredder are action-packed with humor that both children and adults will enjoy. Overall, Enter Shredder is a great addiction to the TMNT franchise.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.
First, the good: The A/V presentation is still solid for standard definition DVD (including 16x9 widescreen, which the packaging lists as "full screen" again), and obviously the episodes are well above average. "The Gauntlet" is an easy standout with the Turtles' first Shredder fight, and the introduction and/or continued appearance of characters like Baxter Stockman, Leatherhead and Karai is a nice touch. The stakes always seem pretty high and, luckily enough, the good guys don't always win easily so it keeps things interesting.
The bad is more objective, unfortunately. One episode ("I, Monster", featuring the Rat King) is not here, as it would normally air between "It Came from the Sewers" and "New Girl in Town". Whether this was simply an oversight or a decision to present them in a different order is unknown, but it's definitely odd. The bonus features are fairly weak, consisting of a short digital comic book and one group of storyboard comparisons. The last two complaints are regarding (1) Nickelodeon's decision to continue with this one-disc "volume" nonsense instead of just waiting for a full season collection and (2) the continued lack of a Blu-ray option. With any luck, these last two problems will be corrected in the coming months.
Anyway, bottom line: this is still a fun disc and worth watching, but it may be redundant if and when a full season set arrives. Until then, you're probably best just renting or borrowing it. For more details, please read my complete review of this title at: [...] Thanks!
