How excited are you for Rise of the TMNT

What is your level of excitement for the upcoming cartoon?

While I'm not too crazy about the designs, I admit that I warmed up to some of them. I like that they're going for something that's never been done before (as far as I know). Especially the different species aspect. I normally don't like the "multiple dimensions" excuse because my stance on the PD films still stands that it has to work and be interesting. My only concerns are with the "lighter and more comedic" tone (due to modern cartoons' comedy), the 11-minute length of episodes, and how they'll handle Leo in the beginning.

I'm cautiously optimistic at best. It's more of a just wait and see feeling.

On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being dread and 10 being over the moon, I'd say I'm maybe a 6 or a 7.

I'm not chomping at the bit, but I am very curious to see what all the negative fuss is about.

Designs: 5 - not loving, not hating
The magic/underworld city theme: 5
April: 6
Splinter: 2
Species variation: 4
Weapon changes: 5 - spared some by Leo still at least wielding a sword of some design. (But odachi my ass, looks a little more European or something else.)
Role change: 2; 4 if temporary.
Changes to who Leo is as a person: -1 (or lower... but don't want to look like a "whiner" that will just get bitched at for daring to not like or accept a thing)

All over I'll give the excitement level right now a 4.

Glaring at the makers, but still watching and waiting to see what happens...

At this point it's budding curiosity. I just want to see a trailer or the first episode just to get the "feel" of the show and see what it's like. I'm not keen on the changes they made so far but who knows, the show might surprise us and turn out really good.

It's too early to say.

I think you could just go and read the countless other threads about this show.

Regardless, I don't expect much. There's really only two things I expect, that we get more than twelve episodes before a mid-season hiatus, and that there isn't more than one or two mid-season hiatuses. Those are the two problems I believe they're actively trying to fix from the previous show. Beyond that I don't really care what they'll do, from what I get it's just intended to be another merch-driven show with quality being a secondary priority. I'll watch it if turns out to be entertaining or have nothing else to spend my time on, otherwise I'm just going to drop it. It'll probably only last a few seasons anyway, then they'll move on to the next version, it's just how these things go.

I don't need a glorified toy commercial to get my TMNT fix. IDW is still printing new material, as well as re-printing stuff I haven't read before. There's just no reason to care about this show when a re-print of the Image series is coming out. Maybe it would be a different story if it was the ONLY new TMNT thing coming out but that's not the case.

I'm not so much as excited but curious, admittedly I don't like a lot of stuff from the information that was given to us but I'm at least going to give it a try

I'm very excited to be honest.

I'll probably watch the first episode then just occasionally see what you guys are saying about future eps when I'm bored.
Yeah I feel the same *as I listen to this is not for you by Pearl Jam*
0- completely indifferent
Some things are better left unsaid. This isn't one of them
