If they hadn't gone with the dragon forms, and if they had either toned down on the mysticism or spread it out across a full season, I could maybe enjoy it. Oh, and the other four acolytes were useless... they were just there to be killed off, but oh no! They survived because we can't kill anyone in a kids' cartoon!

However, the core idea of the One True Shredder was brilliant, as was the Foot Clan, the EPF, and the TMNT teaming up to defeat him.

I loved season 5 too. The only problem I had with it was the absence of Leatherhead.

I can understand peoples concerns with it being too mystical or even power ranger like. To me I loved it, because it fit the story. The entire series lead up to this point. If there was going to be a one true shredder Oroko Saki from the past. Only magic would make sense and if he was going to be a true threat to the world you have to over power him by making him into a god of sorts.

I really hated what BTTS version of him coming back with all the Shredders, it made no sense and really P'Od me. Like the Utron Shredder holding his own against him. BTTS was just god awful!

Actually, it was stated during the fifth season that because Karai had assumed the identity of The Shredder, she did have the ability to weaken the demon shredder and could pose a threat to him. So it is possible that the utrom Shredder could do the same.

I really liked Ninja Tribunal. It wasn't anymore outrageous than anything else they encountered prior imo. That was the end of the series for me.

Been a long time since I've seen it so don't remember everything exactly but once Fast Forward came that was it. I never finished watching FF. I would now though. Don't think I finished Back to the Sewers either. Not that it was awful it was just FF 2 basically. FF/BttS is like its own series to me.

Thought Turtles Forever was great. Regardless of what you thought of FF/BttS it was done well enough you could ignore them as mentioned before.

Would continued Karai and Bishop storylines.

Gosh was the series hurting or something that they really needed FF? I didn't post much here then so I don't know. Didn't keep track of the news and such.

From what I gathered, it mostly had to do with ratings and toy sales in decline by season 4. So, to get kids interested again, they came up with Fast Forward. I have to admit, it was pretty exciting at the time since it was something fresh and new, but I can see why it wasn't as much of a success as it was anticipated to be since it took the Turtles out of their zone for a long time, and the fact that it aired only on Saturday mornings on 4Kids TV. I too was bummed out about the Ninja Tribunal season getting pushed aside, but it didn't bother me too much.

Toy sales. Screws up good storytelling every time.

Oh. Well it's not just that Ninja Tribunal got delayed it's that FF ever happened in the first place.

Like this topic...we can only imagine or think of what could have been had the series continued naturally.

Anyone else think they actually planned a traditional season? They must have had certain plans or ideas they were thinking of I assume.

I would have loved to see something a bit like season 4 after season 5.

Yes but that was through meditation not hand to hand fighting.

If the Demon Shredder came back, maybe he would be weakened, and not as powerfull as before?

The first time I watched the season I did think it was really weird, I still think that but it seems more fitting now.

Season 5 was fine. I see no problem with the Turtles turning into dragons for a mystical Shredder.

At least it wasn't a carbon copy of every Ch'rell fight.

Yea, Utrom Shredder got real tiresome after. Even the dialogue got repetitive. Plus he never had any real motive except that he wanted to conquer the universe.

Now your just making up stuff. He was originally powerful. He was resurrected and still powerful. Even if we just go by your assumption and was extremely less powerful. That original Shredder should own all, because his H2H was solid. I'm not discounting Chre'll's H2H, i've always wanted to see him vs Bishop. But this demon one had H2H and mystic powers, its like me vs you but i can shoot fireballs and fly. Even if the mystics powers were limited its still one sided.

The turtles completely destroyed his helmet and gauntlet, which significantly weakened him. If he was resurrected again, maybe he would be even weaker than that. I am not saying he would/should have if it ever happened, I am just saying thats how it would need to be done in order to make it fair.
