I'll be SHOCKED if this mess of a show lasts one season.

I'll be shocked if it doesn't get more than one season because it looks phenomenal

the only thing I've seen thus far that I don't find workable is splinters design. But I felt the exact same way about the first Nick Too, and he ended up being my favorite incarnation of Splinter.

So I'm more than willing to give the benefit of the doubt.

As said before, so long as kids like it and also want the toys it should succeed.

What'd you have against 2k12 Splinter's design? Too tall?

trying to figure my words, I'll wait for you Indigo.

Edit: Okay, It's what I kind of expected, the humour to go with the show so he suits it.

Is it for the best that Instagram videos hate me and won't play? lol (They used to... Or at least the Nick ones don't anymore.) Post to YouTube, Nick.

UGH His one liners make me want to cringe so much, hope over time those go away. Other than I got no issues with this Leo, he's still pretty bad ass I just hope he steps into being a leader in the season one final.

who would have thought the mess the 2k12 series became would probably be the best we'd get out of nick turtles?

I don't see it getting any better from here folks. sigh.

It's up on Facebook.

My favorite part is when he's punched.

Wow! That was just....bad. That shot where he gets socked in the faced sums up my view of him.

you could almost hear the voice actor right next to the mic as he tries those 'walla' grunt lines too....

it doesn't sound like a character at all. just some random guy next to a mic.

The 1st line wasnt bad but the rest.... so freaking lame. They sound more like mikey than anything.... Honestly prefer the 03 and 2012 versions of leo, i just hope that its at least balanced out by the combat scenes.


~~~EDIT~~~

Happened to notice this while watching the clip. Put in spoilers cause of size.

Also, leo does get his twin katana at some point as well.

I like Leo so far. I'm guessing the villains are going to be pretty 1 note without much depth based on what I'm seeing, it'll focus on the turtles, comedy and quick action.

Whether you like it or not the show has all the things to be hated by both hardcore and casual fans of all ages. It may get a second season since they're likely invested in the product enough for it to last and see if it hits its stride but I don't know if it can last longer than that.

I just...

I will start with a compliment... action scene animation looks decent and kind of liking much of it in this clip thingy. (Non-action scenes... eh. It just looks so... basic.)

That said... throughout this franchise, I never wish to, want to, nor be made to ever feel that it's funny to see Leo punched in the face. This is just sad. It's similar to how 2014 made me resent the makers for making him feel creepy in the film when he threw his arm around not-April and was all like "Heeeeey... glad you could make it" and I felt like siding with her against him subconsciously saying, "Bitch, run." Right, that guy... Who wouldn't think twice of battling through the darkest, most evil corners of the world a thousand miles deep to try to save your ass if you were a friend. And has such a heart of gold that he unfortunately would never let himself live it down if he failed to get to you in time. And now... we turn him into this and they make it "funny" that their overhaul of him and their bad dialogue makes it funny that Leo getting punched in the face at least made him shut up.

This one however wouldn't even notice your ass was in trouble, seeing how he can't even notice that an enemy is about to slug him in the face when he stops to make some remark. Lack of basic situational awareness... soooo ninja-like. (Youth is just barely an excuse here. If you can't keep focus then go the hell home, you ain't ready.)

So... is he purposely being played as obnoxious so things can happen to him and the audience will think it's a good thing? I hope he (AND the writers of this) quickly outgrow the obnoxiousness. He's like an exaggerated boardwalk caricature of Leo came to life.


And really, am I the only one that gets a mild Flynn Rider (Tangled) vibe? I like Flynn, he's a top fave from Disney, but I don't want Leo to BE Flynn. It's jarring to see Leo exhibiting a similar vibe and don't care of it. Leo is my #1 fictional guy, and Flynn in comparison is just a runner up with some room between...

The "all washed up" joke and the way its delivered would have been mildly funny via a character like Flynn or in some other non-TMNT show. From Leo? It's just kind of annoying... And too forced? Mikey should certainly be saying it, given that it's more in his nature to make witty observations and stop to make a joke.



Side note - For those that enjoy it because "it's different," well, more power to you... And Leo fans that do...I don't understand you, but I suppose people's attachments to characters and for what reasons vary, so to each their own and no hard feelings for liking it. (So long as this nonsense is one and done with this series and doesn't leach into other versions.)

Hoping that if Leo calms the hell down and the show pulls what people think it's going to, that it'll be better later on if/when he isn't played for such an ass.

Yeah but to be fair, they’re supposed to be lame/cringe worthy. I’m guessing he’s the ‘not as cool as he thinks he is’ type.

Except this show is for a new generation of Turtles fans, not people already acquainted with the franchise. And I've seen a lot of interest in this series within the animation community from people who aren't even fans of the franchise. I think that this show is going to surprise a lot of people.
