Official Episode Discussion: #3 "Turtle Temper"

Hi everyone...

Well, here we go! The third installment of our young teens in green. This ep will be posting in early October, but I thought we may as well get it up for people to start thinking...

I am SO happy to see TMNT back on television again. I remember how much fun it was for everyone to jump on each saturday to discuss the day's newest episode, over-analyze every detail, and generally have a great time. We had also posted a poll in these threads each week. So be prepared for some good (and sometimes cornball) questions in the future...

Hopefully that will help our old-timers and newer members get comfy and mingle.

So!

No matter what universe of turtles we're in, some things never change: Mike is a hyperactive brat, Donnie's a nerd, and in this episode's case... Raphael's got anger issues.

Looks like Splinter may need to give Raphael a little lesson in anger management... if the poor boy can't handle sibling banter, how can he handle the average New Yorker? Hopefully he won't be having any ideas involving Raphael singing "I Feel Pretty" on a bridge in Manhattan...

I think I'm gonna love Splinter's 'lessons', if they're like this...

And of course, in this world of youtube, twitter and the like, everyone's trying to be the next big star. And this kind of footage would be worth $$$ to the right (or wrong people).

So the boys may have their hands full if anyone catches any footage of them. The turtles are going to have a hard time trying to stay out of sight in this modern world's technology. Let's just hope that Donatello's self-taught knowledge of these things will be enough to get them out of hot water with the media...

(I have missed doing this! )
WILL THE BOYS FIND THE VIDEO?!
WILL RAPHAEL GET CONTROL OF HIS ANGER?!
WILL MY CAPSLOCK EVER STOP WORKING DURING THIS PART OF THE POST?!


You know the drill...

STAY TUNED!!!

Having you do topics like this brings back memories...

I probably won't see it 'til late tonight. Got work :/ Last week I was "lucky" enough to be "able" to stay home sick.

Can't wait for this episode, I hope we see some more of April, but i don't think that will happen until the episode "New Friend, Old Enemy".

Watching the preview it seems Mikey names the mutant, "Spider Bite" like he named Snakeweed.

Unfortunately this is starting to feel repetitive to me. This episode seems to be the same "mutant of the week" formula they kinda used with Snakeweed. I hope this does not bode for the future. I don't want every episode being another mutant fight with Mikey naming all the mutants in every episode.

Hopefully this ep is better than the previews make it look.

The next episode is called "New Friend, Old Enemy" so we can assume it will focus on April and Shredder, so i doubt there will be another mutant next week. I actually like the mutant of the week concept though.

I thought Michelangelo naming the punk after he mutated Snakeweed was a one off thing. Here he names Spiderbites. That was one of the handful of second wave figures correct? I don't think I like this design like I did Snakeweed. It seems cartoony not scary or cool. If only Michelangelo could give Oroku Saki's alias its name!

It doesn't bother me at all that Mikey names the villains, after all they always have the weirdest names. Makes sense that it's because Mikey named them.

this is just a running gag, doesn't mean that this will happen in every episode they are facing someone new...

Watching it right now and have to say I'm glad that they are jumping into Raph's anger sooner rather then later. Also I'm enjoying having someone who just wants money as the villain. I mean there is no reason other then this guy is just a jerk for him being a villain. It's kind of fun to see no vendetta against the Turtles.

I loved Mikey casually saying "Spider" during the pan over.

I called it. He does have a vendetta because he is Spiderbites! The turtles are two for two in accidently mutating a human with something against them. I liked how that was done with Chronos in the orignial cartoon but hope it does not become a formula this time around especially if the opponents are one shot like these two seem to be.

This was a pretty cool episode. I loved the part this one part with Splinter:

"Spike, chew on your leaf if you want to hear a story."
*Spike chews on leaf*
"Very well."

Can't wait for the next episode. We get to see the Foot and a pre-mutated Dogpound in action!

That's Chris Bradford AKA the soon to be Dogpound.

Well yeah we knew he was Spiderbite, but his motive against the Turtles isn't because he is working for someone. His hatred at the moment is because they ruined his get rich quick scheme. It was a nice change of pace from hating them for being them.

And it is cool we get Dogpound next week.
