New Episode Discussion: "Reflections"

Reflections... *looks in a mirror, fixing her hair*

back to Casey's farmhouse again! at least theyre all in one piece this time. Some possible nods to the first movie? who can say...

Gotta love daydreaming. Youre told not to think about something, what do you do? YOU THINK ABOUT IT! Sheesh..
but yeah, the whole groups just kinda doing some thinking of their own. who thinks Splinter'll be glued to that orb like a Pats fan at the Superbowl? *yay pats! *

Hmm... connections of their origins to Shredder the killer jell-o reject? Maybe he got drunk one night, and--

gah, sorry, sorry... forgot the ratings almost...

Just think, you got a Whole week to think about it!!!

The ending was funny though. Like it was a nod to the orginal cartoon as well, who's origin story involved Shredder and Krang making the ooze, and all that.

And the first parts with the Turtles with masks off or turned was great!

The pupils are there! That's cool. I guess the bandanas cover them up somehow. Anyway, nice clip show episode. April and Casey holding hands was cute. Gosh, they just need to do it already. Nice episode for those who have loved the Turtles vs. Shredder stories.

The beginning lesson was great! I loved Mike playing the gameboy off on the side, only to have Splinter drag him back in. I liked this, even as a clip show. Hearing the recounts wasnt too bad, but I likes some of the comments... Especially Raph's description of Splinter..

Raph: "A 90 pound weapon of mass destruction we'd like to call 'Dear Old Dad'"

What else... oh, during Don's talk of their origins..

Sp: "I can remember it as if it were today. You were all so cute.."

The bit at the end where they all got into a big wrastling match was really funny too, espescially with Splinter and April tqalking about teaching the turtles some manners...

Sp: "Even I cannot produce miracles..."

This one was good for people who have missed a lot of episodes, it sums up the series pretty good. I'll have to show this tape to some of my friends to try to get them into this show.

This episode wasn't that great for me though, since I already saw most of it, but I thought the opening was awesome! What episode is next week?

Kinda disappointing that it was a clip show, but I did like the "non-clip" parts. Although the commercial cliffhangers weren't really cliffhangers at all, because it's all been done before.
It was weird to see Raph's eyeball with a pupil when his mask was crooked, then when he straightened it, he had no pupils in his eyes.
It was cool to see Mike has a gameboy...er, gamedude.
Looks like the Turtles don't even think that Shredder is dead now...he'll be coming back.
All in all, probably my least favorite episode, just cuz I don't like clip shows very much..

I'm glad that this was a clip show, It helped me catch up on the episodes I missed. I finally got to see Shred in the building... that was hillarious! I felt kinda sorry for him though, the look on his face... And the wrestling match at the end was great. Oh yeah, I was reminded of the movies when I saw this, I should've taped it. It would work well as an over view to the story so far.wq

Oh yeah, that was so cool when thgey had their masks off! Even if it was momentarily, and most of it was covered up by the r est of their masks, that was cool how they had pupils without the masks on.

That also reminded me of the second movie, where Splinter uses an aroow to free them from the net. Splinter is thier insurance, aka "Mutual of Omaha".

A clip show this early in the series? How lazy. The non-clip parts were good, especially the lesson amd the ending. Mikey's "Game Dude" was cool too, and an obvious reference to Game Boy.

The Turtles with pupils makes no sense though. Their bandanas are just cloth, so why would their eyes go white? At least with characters like Batman, he had lenses in their that housed his night vision/infared.

Quotes
-Whatchoo talkin' bout Willis?

-We're family.
That was off the charts on the sapiness meter

-Even I cannot work miracles

I can see why they didn't show it last week. Since we just had the Shredder/Utrom reveal the week before. It would have been odd to have a 'Remember when' episode, of stuff that just happened. But sheesh, a glorified clip show! Oh well, next week looks good.
