Classic Episode Discussion: The Mean Machines

Alright nothing was happening in the ep 8 discussion so I figured we maswell start this one. I thought The Mean Machines was a cool ep, as usual Krang was harassing Shredder about how there was no way he was going to pull off his goal while Shredder is overconfident. Not to mention it's always great to see the heroes doing more damage than the villians which was greatly shown in this episode.
Krang: "It's been several hours and no word Shredder, care to explain why?"
Shredder: "Sorry, something must be wrong with the transdimensional linkup I'll explain it to you later."
Baxter: "Master I could've fixed it."
Shredder: "Baxter... shut up!"

Man, I used to love watching this episode! My favorite scene had to be in the construction site when they fought off those cranes and bulldozers and whatnot. Dontcha just love that battle music they played?

I also like the end of the episode that OMNUS is stopped simply by April un-plugging the computer
Donatello: "April! Do you know what happend to the computer?"
April: "Of course I do.... I just un-plugged it."
Raphael: "I like it... simple but effective."

You never pay attention to the posts by the local IRC advocates (like myself) on here, do you?

This was a preety good episode, it had the escelating tension between baxter and Shredder which was nice. The action was okay, the "countdown" ending was a nice touch...

Just watched it and great episode, heres my favorite quote:

Raphael after Donatello short circuted the turtle van so it wouldnt crash...
"Whats the panic we had a whole three inches to spare!"

Loved the fight with the cleaning appliances

Michelangelo - "we really wiped the floor with those floor wipers."

I get mine from Kazaa

It's funny how April can just crawl behind the machine at the end and cut the power simply by pullin the plug out. And how Shredder orders the A.I to destroy the turtles so many times, and it thinks it can just send three or four little kitchen machines to finish them, haha ...

PM Karpo_007...I'm sure he'll have all the info for you, and it's a lot better and safer (in terms of not getting caught, I mean) than Kazaa, IMO

Anybody noticed what a pushover Baxter was in this episode(and during this 4 parter for that matter)? Was there really any clear indications that Baxter didn't have any choice in the matter of dealing with Shredder?

Well, if Baxter Stockman refused to continute work together with Shredder, you can just argue that Shredder would easy use his armor or sword to slice, or at least thhreat, Baxter Stockman into pieces once for all. Just stuff we don't see in a children/family-friendly show.

Baxter actually did betray the Shredder in the very next episode: Curse of the Evil Eye.

I like how Baxter kept doubting OMNUS and all the things he can do. I felt sorry for April when they were 70 floors up that building and she had to climb onto the turtles.
