the endless parade of gross mutants in a plot line that never got resolved. then season three started with the pointless farm stuff, and it just went downhill from there.

I rather largely enjoyed most of season 4. not really sure why.

don't worry, most people realize you're allowed to have opinions.

Although I am a huge fan of the Nick series and dont think seasons 3 and 4 are bad by any means, i do prefer the first two seasons overall.

I have a feeling though that season 5 will be my all time favourite when it ends though.

A plot that never got resolved? Are you still making up crap?

For some reason, the Tivo didn't record last week's episode, so I bought it on Youtube. What happened with Raph being wrapped up by the spider was exactly what Sam's best friend Frodo went through in The Lord of the Rings. The nightmare Leo had really reminded me of this fanart I saw back in 2013. It's tough to see. Thank God it didn't actually happen in the episode.

Not a lot to say on this episode. I enjoyed it though, if nothing else it was cool to see actual Japanese mythical creatures, like tenuki and jorogumo. Now if we got wanyudo in this episode we'd be set.

Team Bebop worked their stuff on this episode. I remember i did help out on this one a little bit. The thing I remember was the tenuki with Raphael's head, I didn't know the context of it and the textures weren't on so I thought he was just wearing a bear costume.

Brandon Auman deleted me on Facebook after I said I didn't like this episode. Coincidence?

The Drome, & he does lurk. He's messaged me & several different Technodrome friends of mine on Facebook after being critical of episodes he wrote in their respective threads. I appreciate his frustration but people shouldn't have to hold their tongues for whatever reason. Never been personal on my end.

Seriously? What sort of things does he usually say in response to criticism?

one shouldn't have befriended fans of the show in the first place I think.not if it is the only bond you have with that person.and especially if you cannot deal with criticism..but to each his/her own of course..

in my mind it only strengthens the idea I had about him as a writer of the series.

this new team can not take any form of criticism whatsoever. I know I can't, since I usually don't get positive criticism. that means I'd avoid reading reviews if I ever got into their position. let alone avoid fan contact.

Auman's a dick plain and simple. I've had my own run in with him. If he can't handle criticism, he's in the wrong business. Hopefully he won't be involved in the next series.

[QUOTE=Vicky82;1703033]It was a Lord of the Rings Reference, Sean Astin Character was wrapped up in Webbing

Yes Vicky82, a Lord of the Rings reference, but Sam was never wrapped by Shelob. It was Frodo and that's why in this TMNT episode, it show up Raph being wrapped by that spider.

I though Raph, Donnie and Mikey were killed by that evil guy. Leo was crying, but it was a horrible nightmare. Usagi will lead Leo and his siblings to the temple.

I sense Lord of the Rings in this one. Lots of action. Usagi appeared good in this as well as the Turtles did.
