Official Ep Discussion #16 "The Pulverizer"

Well, let's see if a promo vid comes out before Friday... I've seen the picture, and it's left me wanting.


So, we've got masked figures and villains showing up in the news. And everyone loves a good story about criminals getting their a$$es handed to them. And when there's a good story, there's bound to be copycats.

Somewhere, in the dark corners of the Boroughs, there's a (strangely older looking) teenager running around with his boxers on the outside of his pants, listening to a police scanner to track down some adventures. Making up his own theme song, hoping to make a name for himself... and causing more problems than anything else. The Pulverizer looks more like a college age kid that lives in his parents' basement, living on TMNT online communities or something? Maybe the writers are doing a playful jab to us older fans...

This kid's gonna get his hands full in a bad way - between the Purple Dragons and the Foot, AND the Kraang, it's going to be a miracle if he gets back home in one piece. We may as well just call him Roadkill instead of the Pulverizer... It looks like the boys may get stuck trying to help this 'hero' save the city.

I'm sure it's going to be a good show for Mikey fans, since he's always been big into superheroes no matter what universe you're looking at. Heck, Leo may get to pull out some of his Captain Ryan to impress the kid. We'll see what superhero skills 'Captain Underpants' is going to show us.

I dunno... the ideas are running a little low on this one. As long as we don't end up with an Old Toon Zach type kid, we'll see if this ep contributes anything important to the overall storyline.

On a plus side, we'll be seeing Don's latest resto-mod project - The "Shellraiser", a antique subway car, powered by the Kraang Powercell, that the turtles can somehow manage on the streets of New York without cops or traffic to see them. Can't wait to see that vehicle on an episode of "Parking Wars". There won't be any Chip Foose work done on this ride, but seeing the boys trying to drive for the first time should be fun (unless Splinter's kept his driver's license up to date).


So,
IS THE PULVERIZER GOING TO PROVE HIMSELF AS AN ASSET OR A PAIN IN THE A$$... A HERO, OR JUST A HASSLE? FREELANCER, OR FISHFOOD?!?!
IS LEO REALLY GOING TO IGNORE KARAI, OR IS HE JUST SAY THAT TO MAKE THE OTHERS CONTENT?
AND COULD WE POSSIBLY SEE A NOD TO THE TURTLE TITAN?!

Stay Tuned!

Yoooo that was surprisingly dope! I thought for sure this would be a filler episode but it did not disappoint. Plenty of good action. I had also expected this guy to be a great annoyance but he was pretty funny, actually, and though I'm not rooting for it, I wouldn't mind his return at all. I suspect he WILL train and become quite a force to be reckoned with, thus giving him the build that we can see The Newtralizer has... Hmmm~

The Shellraiser... Whoa! That thing is so badass.

A lot of this episode made me think of what the upcoming games will be like. Driving sequences, training, boss battles, etc. Looking forward to those...

I must say, I was suspicious. This idea for an episode didn't sound that good. However, after watching it, I had a blast. Gosh! Donnie teaching the Pulverizer was like watching a very unsuccessful version of Po from Kung-Fu Panda. It was actually quite funny.

To make a suggestion to Machias:

The line that Leo says to Fishface is hilarious about "walking sushi." That should go in the polls at the top.

I liked this episode. It was pretty interesting to see Pulverizer as Donatello's responsibility.

He probably will launch a full smash-up on a kraang base!

Glad I'm not the only one who thought pulverizer was like the star wars kid when he was training with the Bo staff.

He trusted the turtles with the power cell, and the Kraang got it back.. I just hope he doesn't lose trust in the turtles due to this incident.

No, as long as he can keep his temper under control, he will probably understand.

This episode was a good example of the story going places. A lot of call backs to other episodes and whatnot.

Yay, another Donnie episode!

I thought this episode was really great. I loved all the parts with the Shell Raiser, but I must say, now that we've seen the inside of the Shell Raiser, I'm a bit disappointed that the toy version of the van has a completely empty inside. Oh well. I was hoping to see Shredder and the foot clan, but Fishface was awesome. I was laughing with the turtles when they first saw him. Seeing Leatherhead would've been nice, but at least they mentioned him. Also, did anyone else catch Metalhead's little cameo? The Pulverizer himself was okay, he wasn't as annoying as I thought he'd be. My favorite line was from Mikey "Dudes, we've got a stalker". I'm surprised with how Splinter handled having a human (other than April) in the lair though, he didn't seem to angry or anything. Something that bugged me was when they shot the stink ball at Fishface, and you could see him get knocked down, but how exactly did that defeat him? Since his legs are robotic, surely he could've gotten up. Other than all of that it was a great episode, I can't wait to see Fishface some more, and I'll be watching the repeat at 8:30.
