It seems to do everything right. The animation is stylish without ever taking itself too seriously. It draws many of its styling cues from the hugely successful 80's series, but always in a relatively subtle way. It never merely apes its progenitor, but from the opening titles to the color of April's shirt, it constantly pays homage to that august predecessor. It even knows when to turn squarely in the opposite direction: we get the "angry" Raphael from the real original version of the turtles - the Eastman and Laird comic books - rather than the jokester first minted in the "kiddified" Archie Comics version, which then went on to become world famous in the first turtles cartoon.
So this is a show that's stylish, clever, and certainly light years ahead of the 80's cartoon on any kind of technical level.
For me, this series never quite pops. Something's missing here. Certainly none of the characters have the stand-out charisma of the original animated versions of Shredder and Krang. The way those two would bicker like an old married couple; the way that version of the Shredder would groan with such heartfelt outrage at each fresh ignominy visited upon him. An enormous amount of the original show's appeal came directly from that evil duo. Even Bebop and Rocksteady grabbed your attention and brought an out-loud laugh to your face in a way that nothing in this latest version does. If I had to put my finger on just one thing as lacking in this latest version, I'd have to say that it's really GOOD bad guys.
Like I said in the beginning, there's nothing wrong with this show.Read more ›
