Do you think "Rise of the TMNT" will bring back the PLANTS?



Do you think "Rise of the TMNT" will bring back the PLANTS... or do you figure they won't even bother?

They probably shouldn't bother. It'd kind of be a sad thing to hire people to try and convince 30 and 40 year-olds that their latest little kids' show that's aiming even younger than their last little kids' show doesn't suck and should be watched.

But you never know.

I think the plants are just for movies. The 2012 cartoon didn't have anyone obvious that I remember.

Yeah, I wasn't really poking around the Nick forums here too much at launch time to say for sure. Wasn't there at least a small pack, though, that were all, "Just give it a chance, people!!!", no? Then vanished shortly after the show premiered?

I was balls deep in it from jump street. Can't say I recall anyone suspicious, and I was highly skeptical of the show until actual footage came out.

If you think that Rise of the TMNT is chronologically set after Mutant Apocalypse, think again. The upcoming 2018 series is a different continuity.

Nah... not much. Shows don't really have the same dependency on building up hype and doing a quick hit and run for profits like films do at theaters. Films only really have just a short time to get that cash in so they have to try hard. A show, I assume, is partly profiting through other means and at a slower pace. It has room to improve it its method isn't working.

A plant is someone in the audience pretending as if they're not for demonstration purposes. ie: someone who's in on the gag.

In this instance Andrew is wondering if the community will get a bunch of new members paid to give a positive spin to the cartoon, regardless of the quality or how it is received by the rest of the group.

It's a pre-emptive outright questioning of anyone's credibility.

Okay, thanks for the explanation. lol Reading these comments weren't really helping me, and "plants" definitely didn't mean what I thought it did even based on those comments.

Did this plants thing actually happen? Thats hillarious. I remember this forum was busy back in 2012 but I do think the first season was the best of the show until the fifth and that would maybe be the reason for the positive reception early on?

With the last two movies. Probably can't be proven, but it's not uncommon for companies, including marketing for film, to pay people to post positively about it online. Short lived accounts joined around that time that come in gushing about it then are gone once it premiers are pretty suspicious.

The first Season of Nick Turtles is literally the only legitimately good introspective medium of TMNT that you can show a complete stranger and not cringe to death. (With the exception of the Mirage & IDW comics.)

Everything else in this franchise is largely written down to kids. The first movie tried to be a bit more adult but personally it failed for me.

I'd have to agree with this. Or at least, "only minimal cringing."

I wouldn't say failed outright, but let's just say... "it ultimately fell short of the mark" or "it sold itself short, in the end."

Well, Andrew, being the weed whacker and all I guess you want to keep your job. Do I think the plants will come back? Perhaps, I just don't think Viacom cares when it comes to the cartoons.

What might happen though, is Cubed chasing away the showrunner for Rise.

I agree with the bold. Season one was definitely well-done.

In my opinion, seasons two through five (of TMNT 2k12) have been awful, at least to me. I just couldn't get into them.

Oh my God.

I hope this is a language barrier thing.

Well, sorry if you didn't like them, but the rest of us enjoyed them very much.

Having a bunch of plants suddenly start visiting this site wouldn’t be the worst thing ever.
They can be entertaining, if only because of how dedicated they can be in defending the quality of these works. Sometimes it’ll be incredibly obvious they’re plants but they’ll still deny it (which is hilarious).
And they never stay that long, so they don’t really cause any real trouble.

But I really doubt there’ll be any for this next show.
