All the episodes can easily be found online with a quick google search, it's pretty easy to find around after a while if you go looking.

Pretty sure all of the 2k3 series is still on youtube as is the FW series.

Turtles Forever, however, got removed. Rats, I wanted to watch that someday...

Yeah, I know its all out there now, but my tv isn't a smart tv and my bluray player doesn't have Youtube. I'm old school and I like having the disks. Lol

You know what's funny is the red haired boy Neutrino who wore shades was also named Zak, though as you can see his name was spelled differently. It would've been funny to see an episode where Zach and the Neutrinos meet, then they could've had a little fun with those two having basically the same name.

Also, while I admit there were moments where Zach was a little annoying, I can't help but commend Rob friggin Paulsen for taking on the role.

I didn't mind Zack. I thought it was cool how Zack managed to find the lair.

As for the Neutrinos, I never thought much of them. I didn't mind them.

I guess most of us liked the Neutrinos as children (flying car-like vehicles) and find them more annoying later. But I like the "Four Turtles and a Baby" episode showing more of the Neutrino-planet and their fights against Krang.

Instead it was parodying culture of a previous era. Its like David Wise watched American Grafitti when developing the first five episodes and threw the gimmick and referencing in with the teenage rebels of a war-like race bit.
Actually, in the 80s, stuff from the 50s was nostalgic. Look at Muppet Babies, that had 50s throwbacks a lot. Back to the Future, went back to 1955. Stuff like that. Neutrinos didn't feel forced to me.

The Neutrinos were really cool and I remember including them in a my stories back in the day because I was obsessed with aliens and battles in space. The Dimension X Story is one of my all time favorite episodes. Not so much for the Neutrinos, but because it was cool to see everyone out of their normal element and the Neutrinos in their element for a change. I agree; the Grybyx is the worst, followed by Four Turtles and a Baby.

Zach has always been hit and miss. Yes, he's annoying; but manages to get the job done in the end. His personality kept changing throughout the series with my least favorites being The Great Boldini and Zach and the Alien Invaders; the former because of the exchange between Zach and Don Turtlelli regarding Caitlin and the latter being pure annoyance until Wingnut and Screwloose show up.

I liked Zach much more than his counterpart in the Nick series, Timothy/Mutagen Man. Both could be annoying, but Timothy felt more like he was annoying on purpose and came off as unlikeable/repulsive while in Zach, it felt like he was supposed to played as annoying but still innocent and good hearted. Plus, Zach was actually competent as he saved the turtles multiple times while Timothy has done absolutely nothing.

I wasn't alive in the 80s but I remember there being a lot of nostalgia for the 60s and the 70s back in the 90s. Probably because people born in the 50s were then entering their 40s.

The first appearance of the Punk Frogs was really memorable and quite well written so not surprised.

He's using hyperbole.

I never disliked Zach. The purpose of Zach was the same purpose of other 80s cartoons which was to give the main hero a sidekick. I know David Wise hates the character. Zach wasn't the best but he certainly wasn't the worst.

The Neutrinos were fine. I never had a problem with them. As with the Punk Frogs their first appearance from what I remember was their best and probably also has something to do with the episode being the best well animated of the show due to the Toei A-Team doing the animation for it.

Really? Because I thought it was the total opposite. Most people seem to dislike the Neutrinos in the FW series. And same for Zach.

Yeah, like the Nick series having 70s, 80s, and 90s throwbacks. Personally, Nick Mondo Gecko screams 90s to me. Those working on the show grew up in the 70s and 80s.

I despised them as a kid, and I still despise them. But the Neutrinos' flying hotrods are pretty wicked.

I do like the IDW reinterpretation of the Neutrinos, though. Space elves fighting Krang, the TMNT's version of the Bajoran Resistance or the Rebel Alliance.

No "Daddy-o." No Gryybx or WTF it was.

And no Zach. I'll take Venus over Zach any day.

You know what's funny is while rewatching the intro of Pulveriser in season 1 of the Nickelodeon cartoon, it dawned on me that there's a pretty good chance Timothy truly was meant to be a re-imagining of Zach, but they cleverly hid it by giving him a different first name so as to cover their tracks and not upset those fans of the character from the original cartoon.

I like Zack in the OT, would I like to see him brought back? Only if used in a very minor way to reference him or kind of as a joke, that would be the best way to make it work.

Or a live action older version of zack, years after he first met the turtles played by Japhael.

I can't say I have ever despised them but I agree with the rest!

I actually liked the Neutrinos as a kid. I liked the fact that they were teenage rebels with awesome flying vehicles (they were called Star Cruisers I think?) helping the turtles. I had the Zak Neutrino figure as part of my collection since I thought he looked really cool. As an adult I don't care for them as much, but the "Four Turtles and a Baby" episode is still hilarious (Rocksteady disguised as a baby in a carriage gets me every time).

I don't really remember Zach's episodes from when I was a kid (maybe he was just forgettable to me?), but watching it now I can agree that he's kinda annoying, but most of the episodes that he's in are great.
