I won't speak for anyone else, but some of us also have to prioritize where our budget goes, as comics have become needlessly expensive in the past decade or so. I love comics - my own collection is presently about 30 long boxes deep - but I can't collect like I used to. And frankly, if I can't consistently make room in the budget for Superman and Batman, there's no way I'm doing so for TMNT. There's about a dozen other books I'd be getting first, were I collecting regularly again.

Also, not for nothin', but I've got a big chunk of the early IDW TMNT, and what I've read of it was "Fine but nothing magical." I kinda feel like Andrew's description of it is accurate; "TMNT Jambalaya" with a twist of trying a bit too hard.

So that's where I'm at. Less, "Reading is hard" and more "There's other things I'd rather spend my money on." I'm sure plenty of others feel similar, but they can speak for themselves.

After watching the first ten episodes, I have to say I'm enjoying the show more than I thought I would after seeing the first episode. It really had to grow on me and I still don't love it by any means, but I like it for what it is. It definitely has issues, though.

I still look forward to every episode, and hopefully things will get into more familiar territory as the series goes along. I'm already seeing lots of signs of Leo becoming a leader at some point. That's nice to see. Also, at least one episode has referred to things in a past episode, so there does seem to be a slight bit of continuity. I sure hope this continues.

Another REALLY nice thing is Leo doesn't seem to drop one-liners every five seconds anymore. Thank GOODNESS!!

Well that's incredibly simplified and assuming, and lacking, of the reason for any given person. No, voice acting is hardly the only difference.

Yes, definitely a big part of it. On top if it, I dunno, comics were just never a thing that kept my attention all that well. The art is nice and all, but as a format of story reading it just doesn't keep me invested; not long enough to buy and read an entire series. (If the money was even there for it.)

I've seen portions of IDW online and some of it is good, but the big chunks of it that go off and focus on other characters loses my interest. At most I intend on at least reading through Mirage eventually and do own the first collected volume (that I still haven't gotten to yet), but even then that may take me some years to gradually go through it and have the full set, but so be it.

I actually kind of wish there were more novels. Have a handful of 'vintage' junior novels that have been fun little reads, and likewise for movie novelizations. But esp some young adult+ novels would be awesome. (So no, the "reading is hard" assumption is nonsense.)

Ah, I've mentioned before but I have some of those from back around 1989/1990. Like the movie adaptation, along with "Six Guns & Shurikens" and a few others. Those were a blast. I think I'm missing a few and the ones I have are a bit banged up; one of these days I gotta get around to picking them up again.

Six Guns is one of the ones I have. Never owned these as a kid, but grabbed several from eBay earlier this year.

Just in case that never updated, just want to mention that as suspected there doesn't seem to be any new ones this week.

Al those unnamed ones that were also in my listings have been removed as of when I checked this morning.

Also someone on Tumblr said there was a new promo that said new episodes will continue on Saturday mornings.

Ah, that's right, that isn't next week, I'm a bit off on my date, I stand corrected at least for Sat. (Just no one bother to waste time expecting those other listings to still be a thing.)

Good to know what day they may plan on airing it each week. Hopefully it'll repeat on another channel like 2012 did, since that is kinda early for a Saturday.

I didn't see a thread for Newsworthy but is it just me or when the Turtles were fighting on the news.. what were those things the Turtles were fighting? It looked like an alien robot and some kind of Mouser creatures. I don't remember seeing them in any other episodes so did they just happen offscreen?

It feels a little like all the interesting things happen offscreen in this series.

I won't be surprised if there's going to be an episode where the Turtle Tank gains sentience, and turns evil.

Just me, or is there a bit of dissonance between what is said and what is done...?

It was pretty obvious we would. They'll delve into Baron Draxum again too.

A backstory? Okay, but any word of getting into the actual mystical theme...? Or are we just gonna go ahead and rename it TMNT: Just Doing Things (or however I put that not long ago).

Yes, Draxum is undoubtedly going to show up again. Someday. Would be pretty absurd if he was just there to shake his fist at them in one ep then gone forever. lol Any guesses on how many eps he'll actually appear in though?
