That way I wouldn't have to shrink the window down and make the screen small so my computer can handle Nick's video player better. (I swear that thing must be defaulted to HD. Almost 13-year-old computer no likey HD...)
My computer is six years old, but it's temperamental these days and I don't have a battery. It also takes a long time to boot and the audio becomes distorted after a while unless using headphones or earphones.

The iPad I have was free. It has no SIM card or service, so I can only use it if connected to wifi. I have it now in the apartment.

Even though your PC is old, it should still be able to work with your TV I would assume. If you can plug in an hdmi cable to the computer, then the prob with Nick's site probably won't be a big issue.

Nick.com used to be great until they started forcing you to prove that you own a US TV licence.

You mean the locked videos you have to choose a cable provider to access? Sucks and there's plenty of providers even in the US that aren't included.

Took them a while to get around to adding mine, despite it being one of the larger companies. Figured it was because Viacom and Comcast don't like each other, but why punish the viewer... Likewise, why punish international fans.

Even if that option is there, unfortunately the separation of rooms and that it's a desktop makes that a no-go.

Independence Day

It reminded me a lot of Independence Day.

Loved the scenes with Mikey and Casey. I enjoy seeing them interact together, they make a fun duo.
Jerk to him how? His being sarcastic over Casey having a good idea when Splinter technically did the same thing a scene prior? Not seeing it. He's also acted sarcastic or surprised when Mikey's done the same thing. Also, ROB PAULSEN!! He's the master of snark and sarcasm...why NOT have Donnie deliver that line? Donnie in this version, especially in season 1, is very sarcastic.

For anyone that purchased this episode from iTunes or Amazon, can anyone confirm if the HD version is 1080p?

Maybe it's just a matter of perspective, but I just found that comment a bit hostile, especially after Leo actually praised Casey for it. Also, when Casey asked about April and said he was worried you could see Donatello actually move away a bit and getting defensive.

I couldn't pick up Splinter's sarcasm though. What did he say? Casey: "I am?" "Yes, you would do?"

Splinter said, "You were due." It can be viewed as an insult and a compliment.

The other stuff you mentioned I didn't notice. Donnie moving away and all that.

That aside, Donnie's been sarcastic in the way he has as in this episode with Mikey and Raph too. If this was an isolated incident, I'd agree, but the fact that he's like that with other characters kinda disproves that.

Donnie is a sarcastic character. Rob Paulsen voices him. He is great with sarcasm and snark. OT Raph was the same in this regard. Super sarcastic.

Ok this is just my point of view, but when Casey asked him about April, I just saw Donnie looking back where he came from because he's also worried about her (and I think he was coming from visiting her, that's why he was looking back. I don't see him being deffensive).
And Donnie is always sassy with everyone, I wouldn't take it as something personal to Casey this time. I think hostile was recently in Evil of Dregg when Casey punched his head and called him Donnipedia just because he was saying science stuff. Anyway, I think their relationship will always be like this.

Yeah, the only characters he's not really like this with are Splinter, April, and Leo.

Thank you both for your replies.

===

@redworld96 -- With Donnie being defensive it was after he looked back. Sitting down, frowning, and him spitting out the words: "She's fine. Just resting." I really got the impression he didn't like talking to Casey about it.

@ssjup81

"You were due." So that was it. I would never have thought of that. Thanks for clarifying.


You're both right, Donnie is sarcastic and Rob Paulsen does great work with his character. It's just that sometimes it feels his sarcasm and snarks are either in good fun or more serious. And for some reason, throughout this series I keep picking up those differences. I find Donatello the most interesting because he seems the hardest to read of all the turtles. Of all four he certainly seems the most complicated.

I'm probably just being overly sensitive to this. A few years ago I had a friend who I'd known for years. Everything went alright until suddenly from one day his attitude changed. On the surface it seemed normal but I could notice it in his mannerisms, his way of talking, his constant sarcastic remarks toward me. I asked several times what was wrong but he kept saying it wasn nothing. Eventually I thought I was just seeing things until after almost a year he just blew up at me. Accusing me of everything, treating me like I had caused the end of the world.


Since then, I don't know why, I've become really sensitive toward other people's body language and way of speaking. At work, when outside, I'm always looking for little things and I guess that now extends to cartoon characters. That's kinda sad now I think about it.

I thought it was good, I liked all the Kaiju stuff, and it gets pretty emotional.

He has been with Leo a few times. At least twice in the Season 1 finale.

The slight difference is that OT Raph is just snarky. With Don, it's usually when he gets dumbfounded that the others turn to him on what to do just because he's the "genius of the group", when even he is just as shocked as they are when discovering something or when they miss/point out the painfully obvious. But you're right, they're both sarcastic. Don makes a good replacement for OT Raph, though.

Just realized this (Nick TMNT episode #101) and Adventures in Turtle Sitting (4kids TMNT episode #101) are both about giant, rampaging turtle-monsters.

saw how stockman industries was mentioned in another thread and not sure when it was actually started, if there are signs for it in past episodes but find it funny that ads for it show up while stockman is mutated/still mutated

put in spoiler in case size is too big

I know this thread is pretty old, but I've been meaning to bring up that near the end of the episode when Raphael is tickling Chompy, it's reminiscent to this classic YouTube video:
