That would be me.

After months of basically saying positive things about the show, I dared to say two things I didn't like. Basically I didn't care for Casey's Stupid FacePaint look...and that the Pulverizer was the most useless tmnt character ever invented.

I basically got F Bombed into oblivion and got told to commit suicide by his yes fans.
I'm still rather shocked at how fast that dove tailed.

It was only after that I learned that he'd already been driven mad by Cube who drove him off here. so the over reaction to an opinion made a little more sense.
Even though I shouldn't have to apologize for an opinion, I did anyway after learning all of the hate he was getting from other people, but he was having none of it...and that was it with that.

Suffice it to say, that was the last time I felt the need to interact with any of the new corporate shows creators.

Lets just say I Was more open to the shows flaws .

then Season 2 happened, followed by the Farm episodes, and I all but lost hope at that point and would have given up, if there wasn't still something I liked about it.

Why would I care either way about the latest cartoon for little kids? And even if I did, why would I expect it to be exactly like all the other little kid TMNT cartoons?

Vegita-san harassed Ciro over on his social media pages, I'm not surprised he got blocked/banned or whatever.

I hope that if any of the Rise Crew decide to join this place, that they won't be driven off like Ciro was because Nick Baxter wasn't like his 2k3 counterpart.

Yeah, there is no reason for you to care about the FAKE tmnt.

Well, I've always found that to be a great litmus test.

I've seen him receive a lot of vulgarity from someone over the finale, just constant swearing at him, how does a person plan to get a point across that way? well unless that the point is just they aren't happy, it did that, Ciro seemed to handle the comments I saw on the finale okay though.
I was surprised to learn he was on here, when I looked for his posts I think one of them said 'I really shouldn't be here' maybe as a creator he thought he shouldn't be?

Maybe by that point in season 5 he learned how to deal with it. Back in Season 1, not so much. After I learned how some other 'fans' had been dealing with their feelings towards the show, by going at him with all kinds of crazy stuff...some of the anger I felt at how I had been treated vanished a bit and replaced with understanding.. It all kind of fell into place.

Not one of my prouder moments. But still have no desire to seek out any new tmnt talent from this point forward. Not worth it.

So that show got a lot of it too, I don't know what the overall reaction was to 2012 compared to this one but I imagine similar from those who didn't like it. 2K3 would not really have had the social media aspect in it's time but I imagine there was some negativity before that started?
It isn't just TMNT , I followed a show my daughter likes and they tweeted about not hating.

The rest of the internet is worse right now. There's at least some people here who like/are optimistic/don't care here.

There's plenty on FB. Practically every TMNT FB group is lit up like a Christmas tree right now with 30, 40 year-olds galore going, "WHAAAATTT??? They're ruining TMNT!!!! #notmyTMNT!!!"

SAD!

I hate to say it, but it's really the casuals/non-fans. Yeah, they're the TMNT groups on FB, but they're the same kind of people who refuse to accept a non-Cajun Leatherhead or Casey with short hair.

People who have been "in the game" for the whole length are more "meh" about it on the whole.

I think we have to at least give it a chance.


And hey, if it turns out to be a flop, they'll try again right?

Maybe we'll get an:

Medicore to okay tv show, but a much better movie (series)?

Comics seems like they are doing pretty well.

Balance will come....

that's because 'old time' fans have been through the wringer already. we've suffered bad tmnt. We've suffered tmnt resurgance. We know there is usually a light at the end of the tunnel.

And I think most of us are at the point where, if there isn't this time, that's OK too. We've had 25 great years and that's enough for most of us.

God, I hope so. I do worry that a series (this or any other) could flop and they choose to blame the franchise for not being popular anymore rather than their own choices.



Provided I make it to old age, personally I really hope the franchise outlives me. For this generation to be old and dying off, but know the Turtles still hopefully continue on without us would be pretty cool. Nah, 25 years isn't enough... Wish I could live long enough to see them hit a century, but that ain't gonna happen. My nephew could though.

No we don't. I mean, you should if you want to venture an opinion... but just keep in mind RotTMNT and it's staff don't owe one thing to 30, 40 year old fans.

I'm just glad someone else can see that, or is willing to admit it. It's mostly been myself & Cubed making that distinction up to this point.
