Of the filler characters, i actually liked Nano's arc. Him growing up and joining the Justice Force was a great capstone for the little guy.

Ooh I hate him! And he just wouldn't go away and kept showing up!! I get the arc. It was planned but still. HATE.

Why the hate? Garbageman, I can get. he reeks of something that fits better in the Fred Wolf show, and really didn't have much going for him save wanting to control garbage.

Nano on the other hand just wanted a family, and then to find his purpose. He's not the best character ever created in TMNT, but there are much (Venus) worse.

Well, Nano was total filler episodes, and when he finally "grows up" and joins the Justice Force, still literally does nothing.

I see. Good point.

Why Reflections?

I'd put Dragon's Rising from Season 4 in, because it shows how Hun's taking charge and becoming a rich crime lord (seeing as he owns the top floor of a giant building in TF).

This thread makes no sense. There were like 10 standalone filler episodes in the entire series. Every other episode connected to something else.

Even stuff that originally seemed like filler such as, "The Ultimate Ninja" for example then continued into "The Big Brawl" and the Ultimate Draco arc.

I think the other eps you can eliminate entirely were the two Garbageman episodes, the Monster Hunter episode, and, "The People's Choice."

I love Garbageman. No idea why, but I love him. Nano was cool as well.

But the list seems pretty good, nothing I would cut out. I would add Notes From The Underground (All Parts)

Because they were talking about the Shredder in Reflections. I'm trying to avoid season 4+ because there's a lot of Karai and Hun stuff and that's just adding more episodes. I'm trying to go as minimal as possible to show someone that has no interest in this series, but basically just enough background to explain Ch'rell in Turtles Forever.

@snakeweed101: Eh, those aren't really important. Plus my least favorite

But you kinda need those wind down episodes after the kicks to the groin that came before.

But it's all in flash back....

I might have to rewatch it, then. I'd only include it if the previous episode leads into it, or leads out into the next one, or something new is revealed.

You might be right! I only included the Battle Nexus part because of Same as it never Was. Do Touch and Go and Nobody's fool have something to do with the foot? The Lesson was about Casey, if I remember correctly but I don't think it's too important. I think the Bishop one is important because of Exodus

Touch & Go involves Hun. Nobody's Fool does involve Oroku Saki, Baxter Stockman, and Hun.

I guess Touch and Go can be ignored since Hun is kinda played for laughs in Turtles Forever. And I forgot about Baxter! But I'm not going to go back and find his mutilation episodes up until where he is in Exodus. Thanks! This helps.

Edit: Big Brawl leads into Space Invaders and Reflections was mainly about the boring Ultimate Ninja
And Touch and Go is necessary for Nobody's Fool
