That was one of my favourite episodes of the space Arc as well.

Outlaw Armaggon also rocked.

I could've been without Dregg, but as said, Armaggon was great!

I don't think I could've worded it better myself.

I will say this though, season four had a FAR better second half to its season than season three did. I very much enjoyed the second half of season four. The second half of season three was boring as all shell.

When they travelled in time and went to Japan? It was great!

Preferred the Space arc over the Northampton arc.

The Northampton arc felt overlonged and too "Mutant of the Week" centred. Out of all episodes the only ones I liked were "Within the Woods", "Buried Secrets", "Eyes of the Chimera" and "Vision Quest".

The Space arc was better written (The Triceratons/ Armaggon and Utrom stories were brilliant); though I wish Lord Dregg had more character (felt to one-tracked) and certain homage characters (like Wyrm, Merdudes and Neutrinos) felt tacky (though I loved Bellybomb).

Of course it allows more varying adventures, there's so much more in space than just Northampton, Massachusetts!

Both dragged on too long & got a bit boring really but at least the space arc felt a little less filler/villain of the week. I need to watch them both again without the crazy breaks between episodes, see if that makes a difference as the long hiatuses really didn't help with the feeling that both arcs went on forever.

There were still some decent episodes in both though, Vision Quest being the stand out.

The space arc was the worst when it came to breaks.

Bit late with this one but Northampton. In the beginnig it was a good change of scenery for them and a place to recover, it did go on a bit longer than it could have but there were not many eps I didn't like.
The space arc was a different adventure for them and also good to include but this one went on way to long for me. Both times by the end I was thinking, okay now get back to splinter ☺ (before the end with the space arc)
Had the series gone on maybe they could have had a Japan arc, but I'd probably have found myself waiting for them to get back to NY again.(depending how long it went on)

Both had issues but the farm stuff should have been two or three episodes. On my first week on the show i remember being asked by my first lead if I watched the show and was a fan. I said yes but that I had sort of lost interest in those episodes. He nodded his head and said,

"Yea those episodes kind of sucked."

Everyone in studio seemed way more into the space arc. If nothing else, it was always something different visually.

The only Northampton eps they could have axed was the Bigfoot one, the Dreambeaver one, and maybe either the car one or the giant bird one.

The Creep episode was good, the Punk Frog's episode was great, April's Mom ep was good, and Vision Quest was good.

I could mostly agree with this, part of me would want to get rid of the creep and punk frog episode, but I did like the creep and was happy to see him later. Punk frogs I didn't care for this representation, but they have been around long enough it would have been weird to not have them.
