I haven't had a chance to catch it yet, but it seems like most of the criticism seems to be that it's not the same as the old cartoon . :/
Hey, Laird and...that other guy..said they wanted to make a show that was closer to the original comic, and by the sound of it, they've done just that. Sure, your memories of childhood may have been permanantly fucked up now, but you can always just order some old TMNT cartoons on VHS or something.
Speaking of, wouldn't it be awesome if they released all of transformers, He-man, Thundercats, GI joe and TMNT on DVD in some kind of 80's nostalgia DVD box sets?
Blah. I just hope thundercats isn't remade into a shitfest
