Yup, which is why I smell sabotage but there is another possibility I didn't consider, they just DON'T Care.

They should release the complete 2k3 series on Blu-Ray, not like that.

Blu-Ray? That'll never happen. Nick doesn't do Blu-Ray when it comes to TMNT. I guess the property isn't good enough for that.

Blu-ray and a show from 2003 that wasn't even produced in 16:9 (as far as I know), would not go over together without some dedicated remastering, and I'm pretty sure we can tell by this that Nick isn't very dedicated to marketing the TMNT. At this point, we'd be lucky to get the complete series on DVD.

I saw the Simpson on Blu-Ray(the older chapters like the first seasons) or we can buy from Amazon UK; they have the uncut DVD from Turtles Forever and they can offer the complete 2k3 series.

But the people who own The Simpsons are smart enough to know what they have. They took the time to remaster it so it could be on blu-ray. However, Nick is clearly not going to do that here.

Trying not to nitpick, but taken as a whole, the managing of the brand seems to be very poorly done.
Guys. GUYS.

I pretty much said, years ago, that "all this" is exactly what we had to look forward to from Nick. The only way you earn the right to be as much of a condescending douche as I am, is through a lifetime of never being wrong about absolutely anything, ever. I said plain, "It's Nick, it's going to be nothing but dumbed-down kiddie stuff and half-assed DVD releases until the end of time." And like always, nooooobody listens because I'm generally kind of a jerk. Well ignore that and focus on the message once in a while. Yeesh.

*Almost* anyone else buying TMNT would have been better for everyone. Or, at least, less insulting to the 90% of the fanbase who aren't 6. I gave it a shot, and a few years in, I can safely say, I *hate* that Nick owns the franchise. Hate it.

To be fair IDW's trades are pretty good. There are some weird coloring errors from time to time, but if you can look past that its great to have the material reprinted. Mirage was barely doing any trades and when they did make them they printed so few copies they would become rare immediately and expensive unless you ordered immediately.

That would actually be tragically, ironically awesome.

AND, aaaaaaand... there's an Official 2K3 Soundtrack Album, with a Limited-Edition Collector's Double-LP set containing the Fred Wolf soundtrack as a Bonus!

....But it's only available on vinyl.

I would never stop <expletive deleted>. I would <expletive deleted> so goddamn hard.

There were VHS releases of the 4kids show at least of the first season.

We are doing a thing and you are ruining it.

I dunno, I think I laughed harder at your response to him than your post above him.

I can see that.

I think we discovered the CyberCubed Paradox. He shows up, breaks things, and immediately, they're better. It makes no sense at all but is guaranteed to happen eventually, regardless.

Somebody get Stephen Hawking on the phone. Can that guy use a telephone? I think he can. I mean, you just assume.

Oh man. I'd buy that.

Did you know that people still buy vinyl? It even has higher-quality audio that CDs (though I'm sure it's impossible for a human to tell the difference).

I actually had the DVD's with the shredder strikes and shredder strikes back episodes + the undergounrd episodes, I do not know where they are though. I do remember they had a really annoying pause bit in the middle of each episode where a short bit of the theme utne would play. It was extremely annoying.

But anyways, if I ever wanted to preserve this show for future generations, I'd just find them on youtube and put them on some bought blank discs, because I have no faith in nickelodeon. And it's not like the quality will ruin the show for me.

aw you gotta be kidding me.

I've got the S1 and S2 sets already, so this doesn't effect me personally... but come on. I don't like these "three episodes a disc" releases as a rule, but is there any reason, any reason at all to put out a "volume one" without any of the first episodes?

I don't even see it as "disrespect" exactly -- if they wanted to really disrespect the show they'd just keep pretending it never existed. But it is extreme laziness. I am happy that they're releasing the show again, but I really wish they weren't gambling with its success like this. Put in the effort! It wouldn't even take that much.

Hell, I'd buy it! We've got like four record players in the house.
