Rise Official Episode Discussion S1 EP5B: Mascot Melee

Quote:
Mascot Melee

In order to get a birthday gift for Splinter, the turtles have to take on thuggish Times Square mascots.
Here's a clip

https://www.facebook.com/teenagemuta...6992515691699/

If anyone hasn't seen the episode Newsworthy which airs tomorrow, feel free to discuss it here.

If we are getting new episodes next week, I think I will do 2 episodes for one discussion thread.

Alright I'm seeing a pattern here. There's going to be a lot of episodes where the Turtles interact with humans who are under the assumption they're wearing costumes, aren't there?

It seems that they did flip the official order around between FatF and Mascot Melee. With the shows continuity they can switch a bunch of eps around lol.

Ever since first seeing the premise of this one I can't not think of that Christmas special.

Saw that coming... "too nice, I'll save it for special occasions" (or something like that). At least that part was actually relatable. lol

Mascots were annoying, but thought the Turtles part of the fight was decent and Raph working the crowd was kinda fun. The nod to the old movie was the best part. I definitely need that gif.

Kind of sad though that if this is the last new one (except for those who haven't seen tomorrow's) for god knows how long I wish it would have left us off with one related to the actual overall plot.

Ending a premiere set with filler will leave a bad taste in peopleís mouths. Weíve already seen this with the prior cartoon, but this series may have it worse.

Who else geeked out a bit at the sight of 1987 Raphael's head on the meme?

Is it a dumb plot twist that the thuggish mascots are actually mutants in disguise?

Unless I'm going crazy, I thought I heard John DiMaggio in this episode.

Not my favorite episode, but it was one of the funniest.

Sure sounded like the dog mascot was him, yeah. I hope he comes back for another part, love him.

Thought it was good episode. I can see the mutants wanting make money or pickpocket as mascots since theyíre mutants.

Havenít seen the next episode but I knew it was gonna have another horrible schedule. Words can not describe how much I hate this format. Itís happening to a lot of cartoons.

The episode was alright, I liked some of the references (Turtle in a trench coat, TMNT SOTO dance, Donnie whistling OT tune).

So in this version Raph isn't afraid of bugs/roaches but has a peanut allergy.

Was that Cree Summer voicing that Female Mascot, because it was the same voice of that female ref in Shell in a Cell.

Should Raphael's peanut allergy be a keeper? And could we also get a mutant peanut plant as a villain?

No more peanut butter on the pizza for Raph. Come on, thought they wanted to be more like the FW series. lol

Also, yeah, the mutants trying to get by as mascots does at least kinda make sense. Really though, was Leo really stunned by the girl costume's ass...? lol Wasn't sure I caught that right until I saw a repeat.

Would have made a nicer story though if it was instead GOOD, if misguided, mutants just trying to survive and the fight comes to a halt when they're found out by the Turtles who can suddenly relate to their plight. Rather than just being monster bugs there is immediately no sympathy for. (Not that being pick pockets, including of Raph, didn't immediately end any possible sympathy.)

Yeah, it seems like bad planning to not want to leave off with something that will have people wondering what happens next and at least mildly eager to see it return.

Instead they want to leave off with the worm. Their version of the Plankton gimmick imo. *sigh*

I really really do hope we're just getting some of the most random stuff out of the way. But what are the chances very few eps even created so far even have anything to do with the underlying theme...

I tried to look ahead in the schedule of next week to see if there is even at least just one new one, but it just shows a basic description of the series and nothing spacific. I assume it's just repeats like it will be airing a ton of over the weekend.

Turtlepedia has titles and in some cases summaries for some future episodes, though. And I agree this was a wasted opportunity. And what about bringing back Cowabunga Carl?


Alopex seems fluffy enough to be a mascot, if they try to stick to her original design.

Isn't it interesting that Warren Stone's debut episode is also an episode that is more focused on a villain?

Definitely the weakest episode by far. The meme was just crummy. It felt PPG 2016 levels of bad.

I feel like the show's humor can be hit or miss but I really like the fight scenes in it, like the one against the mascots here.

Great fight/dance scenes in this one, Donnie gushing over the Atomic Lass mascot was funny and Leo's Mascot costume was just a fanny pack, the humans aren't very perceptive. Loved the gag with the tank closing it door so slowly, and jumping jack Splinter... Ewww

Adore the recurring Teddy Bear Town coupons

Now the question is, how soon do we see them there in an ep and I want to know what disguise they've actually be using in order to shop in the place. lol I mean, come on now, according to Raph's member card he's been there a lot and has quite he collection.

(And will real life Build A Bear do 'Rise' Turtles? I mean, obvious tie-ins, come on now corporate people.)
