New Ep Discussion: "Return of the Justice Force"

Man, my last teaser til summer break, and its on a bunch of old geezers...

Yes, it is true.... no more teasers will be done by me for the season. I sadly do not have time to sit and write all the teasers for the remaining episodes. *sniffle*

So...I'll make it as good as I can.


ANYWAYS......


Yaaaay, theyre back in Northampton! The boys ran off to go comic shopping. I'm sure Splinter will just be hanging out at the farmhouse meditating again. Get off yer tail and practice a lil! we wanna see those Master Moves....! Can you imagine his reaction to what the boys're gonna tell him?

But yeh, theyre off comic searching. You know they HAVE to do a cameo of the original comic. They couldnt NOT do it...thats insane!

Justic Force...Justice League's lost cousins or something? Or maybe the Fantastic Four's uncles? *sees Richards wobble by* Uh...heh, hope Doom doesnt see that...

So... a former member is plotting the demise of his fellow heroes. Who could it be?

Stainless Steel Steve, who's gotten a lil warped over the past few years (not to mention shorter?!)

Joey Lastic, who's looking like he could use a lil viagra?

Zippy Lad, a seemingly cheap knockoff of Flash Gordon (watch that wheelchair fly!!!)

Metalhead, the short Sonic the Hedgehog lookalike?

Or Dr. Dome, who...uh....eh..hasnt really changed much?


Dont you love seeing old superheroes come out of hiding/retirement to kick tail again?


Whats this fight that seems to be taking place? Old grudge? broken promises? borrowed someone's dentures by accident? Who knows..!!


STAY TUNED...!!!

In all the hub-bub, this was never unlocked. So I guess if anyone still feels like talking about it...

I thought this episode was awesome, its just a little suspicious that Casey called Steve his friend and during the entire episode they didn't even talk.

It wasn't too bad... Though a bit predictable. I mean, as soon as they said that the girl was gone for a year... I knew what was up.

But it was pretty good.

The Justice Force reminded me of the JSA and all those other classic comic book teams, which was nice. The story was a little bit like what's going on in JSA recently, what with the team being old, and coming back to kick some butt. Good episode.

They also announced that next week would be the season finale. Does that mean we only get one part of Big Brawl, or are they counting the whole thing as one long episode and we'll get all four episodes?

wow well that was a fun episode!
I have to say the Mirage comic of it was better though.....
buy that I mean I like the domoids more and dr. dome more in the comic then I did in the show for some reason...could just be eastman and lairds artwork though lol....but it was fun and I liked how they kept having the silver centry toy keep showing up....I am really suprised though they didn't do a little nod to the old comics or hell even the new ones in the comic book store....
so I bet we will get some cool toys of the Justice force what do you think?
I'd really want dr. dome the most with a domoid or his big dome robot!
that'd be so awsome...I mean seriously playmates want to incorperait action fetures into this new line these characters just scream action feture.

so yea I guess everyone else saw...and I'm not shocked at all that next week is the season finally......of course they would do that they want to keep us all wanting more for a long ass time and go crazzy waiting for new episodes......the preview did look awsome though splinter fighting thet huge dragon and a breif clip of Usagi!
wow I can't wait till next week!

I actually enjoyed this episode even though it was pretty much a filler. It stayed fairly close the Mirage issue #15 on which it is based, but there were some changes. I really liked it when the boys started fighting the Domebots on the roof, which they also did in the comic version. Although this episode was good for a filler, I'm ready for the Big Brawl. Usagi!!!

I never read that issue, but I really liked this ep. I liked the domebots, they were cool ( a dome bot battle a possible secret level in the game?)

Stainles Steel Steve and Metalhead are both in the new comic, and after watching that ep, I finally know who those people are.

I can't wait for THE BIG BRAWL. So freakin cool. Are Usagi and Gen in the first episode of it, or just the last one?

This episode was some what disapointing to me. I read the comic book which the episode was based on years ago. I didn't care much for it then because it was more like a dumb joke rather than a continuation of the story line. Mirage Studios released many TMNT comics with silly stories that don't fit in with the real dark, gritty, serious story line. The new series should not have included it. Stuff like this will make the TMNT look like a joke. Sorry for those who enjoyed the episode. I don't want to come off as a b1tch, It's just my personal opinion.

These kind of episodes always make me wonder. Comic book characters are supposed to be immortal. Or, in the comic pages, they're forever young. When it's like this, it makes me feel like these guys are real, like us, and takes a bit of the fiction and fantasy aspects away. Remember when they made a series where Batman was older and he had to get a replacement? What was that called? "Batman Beyond"? I didn't like it because we had some other person masquerading around in a bat suit. I know no one lives forever, but that's why we have the fictional world. It's like putting a hold on time and letting the characters live in the past and present only. I dunno, I guess the whole thing of aging super heroes is an upsetting sight for me.

I don't have the original comic, so I can't really compare them, and I have to judge this episode on it's own.

I did like it. The beginning reminds me a lot of my house, when all the kids are home. Everybody's being noisy and disruptive and simply getting on my nerves. Too bad my sibs don't like "road trips", (i.e. playing at a friend's house, the park, etc.)

I was very amused by the cliché old-school comic book feel. I mean, on one hand, it so reminded me of the few comics I've managed to save from my dad's old collection, and the eye-rolling dialogue and story line. But Mikey's comments about it being so like the comics made the whole thing that much funnier. I needed a good laugh this weekend.

I can't wait for next week. This arc's gonna rock so much.

Random stuff:

I read the synopsis for the original episode and I have to say, this was better, at least plotwise. Heh, now I know who most of the people at Splinters funeral were.

The beginning with the comic book was inspired. I liked it.

Good to see Casey being somewhat competent again, after his (realistic) fumbling in City at War.

I liked the super-heroes, who perfectly walked the line between legitimate and campy. Glad to see Zippy's 'first' appearace (he's a supporting cast member in the current series). BTW, there's one hero missing, right, Captain Deadbolt? What was he like?

Glad to see the Silver Sentry making a cameo,although I'm still hoping he makes it back for another episode.

Also, I'm glad to see the series isn't getting soft on us. This was one of the most serious and "mature" episodes in a while, despite the silliness.

Marty Isenberg writes Mikey the best. Funny, but not over the top.

Crap, more cycles? Don, the Battle Shell is enough; now lay off the vehicles.

Yay, turtles in jackets! Shades of the Archie future turtles.

Aw, hiatus after next episode? Dammit.

All in all, a very good one-shot, with enough twists and turns to keep me interested until the end.

I liked it. Metalhead never talked though. Is it a boy or a girl? I was getting kinda confussd in the love triangle when her daughter showed up. What was her name? I mean Bernice is sleeping around and now she has a kid!!!! Wow that screams Maury!

I thought the ep was not as good as I thought. IT was funny when splinter was flipping out on them.


For northampton why didn't they show the wal-mart and stop and shop there? I went there (to northampton) last summer and went to wal-mart on teh way to springfield. That would have made the ep neater and more fun to see.


IT was good of them to have the story take place in northampton because that is where the studio for turtles is.

I never expected to see silver sentury too soon. Maybe they will have him make another (2nd since this one did not count since he was a toy) appearance in season 3.

Justice force reminded me of fantastic four.

Um...

Probably because if they showed a real-life store like that, they'd have to pay them money to use the name, I think.

Hehe... the TMNT hit Walmart... that would be a sight to see.

Just a note, 'The Flash' is the scarlet speedster.
Flash Gordon was the space man. Sorry, that always bugs the hell out of me.

All in all, it was a good episode.

The daughter's name was Amanda, which I thought was cool because that's the name of a well-known TMNT fan online: Amandatello! It's like, how many people can you think of in the TMNT universe with names of online fans? Unless there's a lot of April fans, I can hardly think of anyone that I know who shares the same name of a character in TMNT!

The Episode was making fun of Marvel Comics Characters it was really cheesey.They should stick to more Shredder based Episodes or quit using the parody stuff.
