When do you think you will start to have nostalgia for this series?

Like any franchise, once something gets really old people begin to have nostalgia for it. The original cartoon, first 3 movies, the old Mirage and Archie comics all have the nostalgia feeling to them.

The 2k3 series debuted in 2003, which was actually 8 years ago now.

While I have rewatched all the episodes at least twice, I still don't have the nostalgia bug for it quite yet. I think once the Nick series starts is when the nostalgia for this series will kick in for most people.

Never. I love the series but I've watched it enough. Even if I went a while without, it wouldn't be like I was rediscovering it.

True, but what about 10 years from now?

I think the 4kids series will be remembered by TMNT fans what "The Next Generation" was to Star Trek fans, compared to the original series.

It'll be awhile before it hits me. If the new series blows though I'll be shutting myself off from TMNT all together most likely. It's starting to become one of those things that's never as good as it used to be or could be.

I kinda do already, in a way. I still like the show, but I miss the feeling I used to get while watching it as a 12/13 year old (well the first couple of seasons at least.)

I have to say i feel somewhat similar. The series as a whole does not really bring back a whole lot of nostalgia, but i can remember watching at least the first season on tv when it aired, and "rediscovering" those episodes earlier this year brought back some of those feelings. Ive always been a much bigger fan of the 87 toon and the mirage and image comics, but i was still young enough during the first season of 2k3 to find it somewhat nostalgic now.

And i also agree with the star trek comparison. I rewatched all the 2k3 episodes and really enjoyed a lot of them (mostly because of their comic book story arcs). but of course it will never meet excellence of the original toon in my eyes.

Yeah but those shows take place in the same universe and have different characters. It would be more like comparing the old Adam West Batman show to Batman: TAS.

i dont think he meant it in that sense. Its more like "this version is pretty good, but the original is still better". / more memorable

I watched most of it a few years ago in more or less marathon fashion. I'm already getting semi-nostalgic for it, in that I keep getting the urge to go watch the rest of it, or start over and watch it all through. I really liked the show.

Man, I was 10 years old when the show aired. I got back to watching it on youtube in my first year of collage in 2011, and it would always give me a nice dose of nostalgia wile I was out trying to be an adult for the first time.

I have been tempted to buy the dvd with the SAINW episode in it. I'm always worried TMNT 2003 won't be on youtube forever.

I'm with Thunder on this, right now.

IDK, I finished bingeing (that doesn't look right, but auto-correct is well, saying that's the correct spelling) it last year, a good two months or so before I joined here. Man, stuff has changed over the last year. Like, I'd bundle up with my sis and we'd always watch the Good genes arc on my tablet. I stumbled upon one of those episodes on YouTube recently (can I mention that? It's just direct links that aren't allowed, right?) and it was just so relaxing to watch. Man, now I wanna rewatch this series.

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Old threads hehe.
Talking by now, almost 17 years later, I don't really have nostalgia. I mean, I LOVE the 2003 show and it's and it will still be my favorite show of all time, but I can watch it as long as I want since I have a collection of DVDs.

The really nostalgia kicks when I play the Ps2 games based of the 2003 show. Those games make me wanna turn back in time when me and my brother argued about who should have picked up Donatello or Leonardo.
