A few months back there were photos of the TMNT Autograph wall were all the stars sign it, one of autographs was Verminator Rex and the voice actor signature but it aint Eric Bauza's signature as you can see his signature with Tiger Claw.

Found it, you see Verminator Rex at the bottom centre of the poster.

Pic is too big so it's under spoiler tags

Wow. I can't believe they got away with Splinter actually getting drunk on a Nickelodeon show. Also, why did Alopex blame Tigerclaw for getting them mutated and what did she mean when she told him that she knew he was responsible for what happened to their parents?

Well, in the flash back he was the first one to go into the portal. Alopex probably blames him because it was his idea. As for the parents thats still up in the air, it is the reason she tries to kill him earlier. Though I find it funny how Tiger Claws all confused as to why she's mad at him.

"Sis why you mad?

"YOU GOT OUR PARENTS KILLED!"

"Yeah, but why you mad?"

That was likely why he was saying they needed to talk because he wanted to explain his reasons for everything and when he caught her in that trap he did say everything he did was to protect her. And she was to angry with him to listen or beleave what he had to say.

Of course not, just a bit of trivia for the curious.

Ok then, I just didn't want to see a pointless argument over it.

It also doesn't matter because little kids probably don't even realize the show came back with new episodes.

I never actually got to respond to this so I'll say this:

That quote perfectly sums up everything that went wrong with this show.

A lot of the storytelling in this series is done through intervals (and this is in NO WAY helped by Nickelodeon's airing schedule) - so we're basically waiting on events to play out WAY after the set up. Like...an INORDINATE amount of time in a narrative sense.

Tiger Claw's motivation was the MEAT of that episode; something tangible that the audience can identify as a building block to his character and it wasn't even included in the episode, presumably kept back for Alopex's next appearance. Why should I be excited for the next dish when my first plate was empty?

Don't even bring up the fact that I liked Bay Turtles; saying those movies didn't even have ANY meat to them, because that's an entirely different meal.

That's what most shows with continuing plotlines do. They reveal some things and save other things for later.

And this show failed to reveal the RIGHT things at the right time.

They got everything right, you just must not have been paying attention or don't remember the episodes. Did you even properly watch all of Season 3 and 4? I recall you saying you skipped over a lot of episodes.

Guess this doesn't bother me. Things like this bother me if it's never touched upon again and I don't complain about this unless the series is finished, not something that's still in production.

I skipped them as they were airing and then caught up during the finales.

Even marathoning through it like that didn't help.

Really solid episode with great action. It was interesting that Alopex and TigerClaw were humans and siblings. Alopex will not give up easily. The "Back off Tony" quote by Raph made me laugh until my side hurt.

Kinda random, but I just realized that Splinter's name in the Japanese dub of the OT was Yoshihama Takeshi. And the founder of the Foot in IDW was Takeshi Tasuo (before being reincarnated as Saki).

I wonder if the crew was aware of either of these factoids, or if they just picked a random name.

Takeshi is a pretty common Japanese name. Brock from Pokemon's Japanese name is Takeshi too.
