Official Episode Discussion: S2 #8 "The Good, The Bad, and Casey Jones"



Well, after a (way too long) hiatus, we're finally getting to see some new episodes.

Casey Jones is going to transform into the hockey-masked vigilante that everyone knows and loves, and apparently the Rat King will be making a reappearance for this season. Better hope they know how to deal with the mind-control issue with Splinter... then again, there's something about a giant killer mushroom in a future episode, so maybe it's all a hallucination or something?

I really don't get WHY they're putting the show on Sunday morning at 11am... if they think the ratings will be better, more power to them. I won't be available to view it live, but the thread will be open in time for post-show comments.

I'm curious if this is a permanent change or not (I looked at my DVR and it has TMNT at 11am on Next Sat and Sun.)

But it occurs to me that this week's episode seems to be all about Casey Jones, who is very sports themed and today is superbowl sunday...

This Episode was absolutely FANTASTIC!

Epic fight scenes, great character development and one hell of an introduction to one of the greatest characters in TMNT.

Oh, and one of the best homages in the series yet. I won't spoil it, but great visual reference to the original Ninja Turtles Movie!

Wow I can't believe I already watched the new episode already, It was a great episode but I'll discuss the episode later when everyone else has seen it.

Ok, how did Raph "Accidentally" hit Leo's ribcage? Also this episode seems eerily familiar to Casey Jones' first appearance in the 2k3 show.

Probably because both are based on Raph's one shot that introduced Casey Jones

Watching it right now and loving it. I've got to agree that it is sort of similar to how Raph and Casey met in 2k3. I like Irma and Casey and April's dialogue.

Mikey's kind of being more of a unintentional jerk than usual in this episode.

-Burps in Don's face.
-Splashes popcorn in Don's face.
-Teases Raph about giving 10 seconds before flaring up again.

Casey has become my favorite supporting hero. He is totally wicked in this version. What a great episode.

I'm probably the only one who didn't like this very much.
As much as I love this new show I'm just not a fan of this kid Casey.
I'm still not really a fan of April either so I guess I just don't like bratty jerky teenagers. *shrugs*
It just all seemed to happen to fast for me with Raph and Casey just meeting and becoming the best of friends.
Yet when they met Tim they treated him like total crap.
I have to wonder if the lair is compromised now though since Casey lead the Foot to it.
That was the only thing I think I liked about the episode.
I know a lot of you like nonstop action but I like a bit of story to go along with it and I felt it wasn't really there this time.
I also find it really hard to believe Casey could take out the Purple Dragons and fight Raphael so well.
Plus I just want to say I feel like they've really dumbed down Mikey which every show seems to do at some point or another.
Oh I almost forgot to mention Irma, not as cute or funny as the clumsy old toon version but the voice did sound a bit like the 80's version which I thought was cool.
Here's to hoping I enjoy next weeks episode better with the big April secret!
I give this episode a 3 out of 5.

She's had a screen presence of 30 seconds, what's there to hate?

I don't hate her. But I admit I am a little weirded out by the fandom's obsession with her, especially since her OT presence was annoying and boy-crazy creepy. Why doesn't Angel get this kind of love? She's actually kick-butt, interesting and full of potential.
