I've never watched it beyond the pilot episode.

I thought about doing a full watch and making a thread chronicling my thoughts on each episode but I don't know, feels like it might be wasted effort.

I caught this show for the first time just before Christmas and watched it through as it was available on my TV provider. I can't remember what ep number has what title though.
I think once maybe twice I found an arc a bit long early-ish on but otherwise enjoyed it, the first 5 seasons mostly anyway.

I'm on the Fast Forward episodes right now. What's tough with my rewatches of shows is that I don't just go straight through from beginning to end, uninterrupted. After I get done with the Fast Forward season, I'll likely watch a season of something else, maybe the first dvd set of Justice League Unlimited (for example).

Do it!

2003 cartoon series is one of two series I actually sat through a chronological marathon of. It may have its flaws like every incarnation, but it's well worth it.

It's possible for these words to all be used in the same sentence?


Not watching right now. Plan on diving into it again (*cough* if I can find uploads online -- look, Nick, it's your own fault for not putting out a boxed set, so pirated it is, for now) once I'm done a rewatch of the first cartoon, but it's going to be a bit still.

If you haven't watched beyond 1 episode, I don't see how you can feel that way.

Agree with CyberCubed got to try more than 1 episode.

Up to episode 44 The Golden Puck now.

Best episodes so far are easily the Shredder Strikes Back, Return to New York, Turtles in Space and Secret Origins parters. What a Croc was great to.

Not so good only Reflections and Garbageman episode.

I've mostly seen every episode once when it was airing, although I'd catch up with YouTube rips since I don't live in the US.

I have been thinking about binging the show, but honestly I feel one viewing was enough as looking back, most episodes was kinda boring, or at least not exciting enough to rewatch beyond those I've already seen twice or more.

I first managed to catch season 1 over the Cartoon Network Sweden when it aired in January-February 2005. The rest? Youtube.

I didn't watch the show when it aired. Recently I've been watching it with my 6 year old son (who love it!) each night before bedtime. We try to do 1 show a night. Right now we are in Season 3 about to watch THE EXODUS PT 1.

It's nice seeing all of these for the 1st time and watching with my son. Really enjoying it so far.

I started rewatching the show a few months ago, though I’m taking a break from it at the moment. Watched up to season 4. The series holds up well imo, much better than the OT, even though it has flaws. It’s more fun to watch than I remembered (used to think there wasn’t much humour), as a lot of the humour went over my head when I was younger. Has a good balance of standalone episodes and serialized storytelling.

As much as this show is my favorite one, the last time I watched entire seasons was three or four years ago. I stopped at Season 2. I haven't watched some of the Season 3 and Season 4 episodes in a very, very long time, and I probably never got to thoroughly watch every Fast Forward episode either. I'll add that to my list for this summer.

However, I have watched a random episode here and there when I wanted to remember what happened. For some reason, I like to revisit "Superquest" from Back to the Sewer a lot. It's a really fun episode.

I also don't get the hate for "Garbageman." Sure the villain is really far out there, but it's nice to see the Turtles scavenging for things and interacting with the homeless. I like those early easygoing episodes where the Turtles didn't constantly worry about the Shredder. I also thought Mikey's garbage puns were funny. The Battle Shell scene with the garbage truck was cool too.

The series aired until early 2009. Not sure when that first channel that uploaded seasons 1-5 started uploading though.
