I'm just curious why Mutation Situation is mentioned so much. I mean, I get there are things in there that people don't like and it's not my favorite episode but I wouldn't label the entire episode as worst moment. I actually just rewatched it again since it was mentioned so much.

Didn't like that one scene where Mikey's teeth fell out in classic Looney Tunes or Tom and Jerry style when they were in the Asian restaurant.

As said, that was way too cartoony for me.

Yeah, I personally liked it and was anxious to see the new mutants coming out in Season 2 resulting from the mutagen, but hey, haters gonna hate.

Mike starting eating it.... that was extremely weird.
Like...kill it before you eat it, man. You have some higher brain function.
I think Mike has some serious mental problem, i dont think he is just some fun loving dude.

Don't act like that wasn't one of the best moments in the show

I don't think it's just her gifting in general.

It's the speed at which they've handled it more than anything. It was thrown at us all of a sudden. She was quite normal for a long time, her 'heritage' hinted at, but never properly addressed, then three or four episodes in a row she's suddenly got these psychic powers where she can detect eavesdroppers and enemy spies and whatnot. It seemed very clumsy to me.

They have been giving hints of April's psychic abilities and other non-human traits since season one.

I am not sure were to begin about the worst moments of the show though most of them have involved Mikey(Shell Acne, Ice Cream Kitty, naming every mutant, etc.).

Cockroach Terminator. Super gross and the episode was just filler.
This season, though, worst moment was the introduction of April Derp in Kraang Conspiracy. WHY?

Eh, I thought Cockroach Terminator was hilarious, and so on point. The tough guy having a ridiculous phobia on something so small.

I could relate a little too well to The Cockroach Terminator and had trouble watching it but I did think it was funny. One of the many reasons, I loved Humungous Fungus so much, I was actually busting up laughing at something I usually cringe at and have panic attacks over. I really do not like cockroaches, lol!

I have a fear of Palmetto bugs, they are the worse, because they will crawl up a wall, then dive bomb your ass. No joke. I know they can't hurt you, I just don't like this giant flying cockroach coming after me. The way Raph acts with the little roaches is exactly how I act, it's probably why the episode was hilarious for me, it came close to home.



And this is typical of most Floridians. We want to kill the suckers, but we're too afraid to get near it!





Now, the Humungous Fungus episode, it is funny, especially when Leo is seeing the fantasia part. If someone don't laugh at that, then I don't know what to say. You got no sense of humor. But, it did it's job as a good one shot episode, and I don't feel they need to make another one.

^^ Palmetto bugs are the worst

April Derp was hilarious. But I think April's super powers are whack and so was Shellacne. Turtle Temper was ok IMO.

I CANT EVEN right now. This is why I can't live in Florida.

Back on topic, though. I'm kind of shocked you guys found Cockroach Terminator funny. I haven't watched it in a while, but it seemed weirdly paced and unnecessary. Great storytelling is in its subtleties. There's was no need to build a plot and bring in a mutant for Raph's little fear. If that was the case, we would have filler episodes about how spazzy Donnie is or how Irma doesn't like gluten. Maybe the mutant for Irma's episode would be a piece of gluten bread that infects gluten-free products. And then maybe she can meet the turtles while being saved from the acne and stomach pains she gets from eating those evil products...

Agreed. And then when Donny says "That's the most beautiful girl I've ever seen."
"Isn't that the only girl you've ever seen?"
Except they have a TV down in their lair.
