It seems to me that repitition and contiuity are major problems in the show. How many times has Leo struggled with being leader? How many times did Raphael loose his temper? Mikey with his clumsiness? Donnie creating tech that goes wrong? Nextons are classified as minutes in The Arena of Carnage but in The War of Dimension X The Utrom say it's years. These need to be resolved.

Probably thousands of times considering that's been the formula for success these last 30 years. What do you expect? What the hell needs to be "solved" about that?

Utroms and Triceratons are two different cultures. In America "spastic" means jumpy or hyper, whereas in the UK it's equal to calling someone a retard.

I can think of examples all day.

We have had 4 episodes about Raph's temper. Two of them were consecutive! And he's still like that!

What are you expecting here? This is the same in any incarnation. The Turtles never move on past their archtypes in every series.

The 2k3 series had Raph angry, Mike being silly/ridiculous, Leo struggling to lead, and Don inventing stuff the whole way through too.

If you're tired of TMNT, go watch The Sopranos, or a Coen Brothers movie, or a Ken Burns documentary.

As you should well know, teenagers have trouble with figuring out their identities & dealing with emotions.

This is how it's been done for ages, if you don't like it, TMNT may not be for you.

We've had an entire multimedia franchise of this and it's getting very old. It's rapidly made Raphael my least favorite turtle, as every version will end up retreading this same concept with him and wasting a lot of pages/screentime.

Mmm, yeah. This is hardly the biggest problem with Nick's TMNT series.
