Why does everyone seem to dislike Fast Forward so much?

I remember Fast Forward and I liked it. I don't really get why it gets so much hate from the fandom just for being different and going back in time.

To me, it seemed like most people only really hated it back then. They've all mostly mellowed out by now.

I personally loved Fast Forward, far more than Back to the Sewers.

I guess it's the lighter tone, more obvious toy-shilling, addition of new non-turtle characters as part of the status-quo, etc.

Personally, I loved it. 4kids was at its best doing original stuff, IMO. Well, I don't care for BTTS, but I stand by that sentiment otherwise.

Sure it has the worst theme song in TMNT history but I don't see why it got such a negative reception with the fanbase.

I really liked FF. I wish it got more episodes.
I remember alot of people hating cody, but he was fine to me.

It was just mediocre, the villains we were meh, the supporting characters kinda sucked, and it felt more like a gimmick than anything with substance. Still better than Back to the Sewers but I'll probably won't be revisiting it.

When the obnoxious singing voice was removed, it turns out to be a very good song surprisingly!

I didn’t like it when it first aired, but it’s grown on me over time. Like ABrown, the main problem I had with it was that it replaced the Ninja Tribunal season at the time and the change in tone, setting and characters was jarring, but that doesn’t really matter nowadays. Still don’t like the theme song, though.

I have no idea, and it makes me kind of glad that I wasn't really involved in the online fandom that much when it was airing because....damn was I entertained by that ridiculousness.

I felt like it was a gimmick and also a little to close to the kind of stuff Power Rangers does.

Personally, not a fan of most of the new characters and villains thrown at us. I like the Dark Turtles, Cody and that blue girl are "eh," but the rest... pass. I like the Turtle's own performance just fine. But why oh why did that darn snobby robot have to follow them into the final season. >.> That was a disappointment. But I like the Turtle part, so there's that.

I confess though that in some way I kind of like the theme song/opening for that season, it's sorta fun. (Unlike the last season's that is kind of exhausting just to watch.)

I remember being pretty hyped for it when it was first announced. 4Kids really played it up to seem like it was a brand new show and even ninjaturtles.com was updated to reflect that. I even got some of the action figures the summer the first three episodes aired. I initially enjoyed it, but I was still dissapointed about Season 5's cancellation. For some reason, Comcast was showing a few of the unaired Season 5 episodes on demand that year, and some people recorded them and put them online, so that was all we had until it was finally released on DVD and aired on TV.
