Rise Official Episode Discussion S1 E11a/E11b The Purple Jacket/Pizza Pit

Might as well do a episode discussion then as the episodes are up online.

The Purple Jacket
An evil tech club lures Donnie with the promise of a gorgeous purple jacket.

Pizza Pit
Itís Pizza Week, the greatest week of the year, but the Turtlesí favorite pizza joints keep getting taken out.

Agreed, like the girls name should have been Angel.

I did love the second half of the show though.
These are my favorite parts:

So if they think the old toon version is an alternate universe what does that make the cgi nickelodeon show?

The purple Dragons as tech bandits? Unusual but no weirder than Baxter being a child.

I laughed way harder at that part than I should have. What really nails it are:

The foam costumes.

Not seen this, but now I'm wondering if the concept takes any cues from the Fast Forward season's Street Phantoms?


*cough* Seems like these eps are already up on that other site that can't be named, so if anyone lacks access to the Nick videos for one reason or other...

So...

Spoiler:
...they're tech geek high school kids...? Well at least they became actual bad guys, I guess.

Maybe we'll see them again? I could see Baxter falling in with them.

Gotta be honest, usually it's cute, but these Turtles do not look too great sans masks... Although I liked Leo's PJs. Naked-looking Donnie in contrast however...

-------

Well, I give this show props on actually making female mutants more of a norm and not the rare exception to the rule. Even if they were kind of annoying.

So... Donnie has gained 2012 Mikey's belief in imaginary creatures? (I know, I know, it showed up at the end, but like we'll ever see it again.)

Originally thought he may have been one of the better characters in this series and the most intact, but with some of the past eps after seeing both of these eps, this Donnie is starting to get annoying in some ways, to be honest.

I think I've had my fill of wannabe "Ren & Simpy" faces for one series.

Since they used it again, if we don't see those suited up Turtles as figures in stores eventually I'll be surprised.

edit: Oh and I must not forget the pics of 2012 Turtles from seires, costumes, and the crossover '87 TMNT, which was kinda cool. lol


Not the worst eps, but... meh. Watched the pizza one first, figuring I'd like the other one better since it was actually Purple Dragon themed not just pizza themed, but honestly... the pizza one was funner imo, if still a nothing ep.

Spoiler:
Someone out there is so going to ship one of the Turtles with one of those band girls by next weekend, mark my words... lol

Both of these ep segments were weird and kinda lame. Honestly prefer the purple dragons as a gang than some high school club although the tech bit is a cool take but that can be mixed in with the gang aspect. Dont really have much to say on the pizza 1.

I haven't watched it yet but I was surprised to see this listed on my Amazon video. Weird that it just dropped online. I wonder if that was planned or not.

The Purple Jacket was okay but Pizza Pit was just boring. I did like the interaction between Don and April how he was constantly blaming her for his faults.

So these Purple Dragons are essentially the Black Gators.
