  • a ggod epsiode

    too bad they only had two epsiodes of mercenerany villian who is as good as either Shredder or TMNT when it came to Ninga fighting
  • Excellent example of Leo-centric gold!

    While Leo is not my fav of the four, but he deserves the attention he gets from writers and fans! This is simply a classic!
    Leo clashes swords with a katana-wielding ninja worthy of his prowess-- and she's a woman! Leo vs. Lotus is the best sword combat of the series. It surprises and angers his brothers when their leader is defeated, but Leo is absolutely smitten by his new adversary! "She's cunning... She's trecherous... *sigh* She's wonderful!" You would never expect the normally serious turtle to be so skewed from his current mission. Its a shame she turns him down. "It would never work out between us. You do not respect my career... There is not much gold in goodness."
    Okay, so this is a kiddy show and we cannot expect to read too much complexity in these characters. Lotus herself is very familliar to die-hard turtle fans; she appears to be vaguely similar to the she-ninja Karai, Shredder's successor to the head of the Foot clan. Only Lotus lacks Karai's strong sense of bushido.
  • Leanardo in Love

    This is another one of my favorate episode that ranks about number 2 on my book. Normally I am not a fan of the romance genere, but sometimes I have a high appreciation as well as a soft spot for romance that is done right. This is one of them, and it's based on my favorate character Leonardo. I'll admit when I was a kid I had a crush on the Lotus character (I know that's strange but true and I don't think I'm alone here). She just was always firry, rebelious, elegant, just like to do her own thing. The Karia charcter on the current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles very much reminds me of this character, it's a shame the relationship between Karia and Leo in the current version ended badly, I really felt bad for Leo.

    I felt the only shame about this episode is the Lotus character never became a reacuring character, let alone build up more on both Leo and Lotuses romantic interplay. Would of been interesting for the show but oh well.

    But at least in this episode it ended well for Leo and Lotus. Anyway the episode was both sweet and funny, I loved the part where both Leo and the Lotus fought each other in a sword duel and both of them while determined to beat one another at the same time have romantic conversation. Now that's what I call working out your feelings.
  • This is the episode I remember the most. The one I look back on the most.

    When I was little, I had a crush on Leonardo. Weird, huh? In this episode, the character "Lotus" is a bad guy. And this is what I remember: something happens so that Leonardo helps her turn good... At the end of the show, they order pizza as usual, the pizza boy (wearing a baseball cap) comes and goes. When they open the pizza box, there is a lotus flower on top of it. Which is Lotus' signature. So, it ends, with the pizza boy coming out of the sewer, takes off "his" cap... and reveals long hair, showing that he's a she... the pizza boy was Lotus, visiting the turtles one last time. Anyway, I just remember being incredibly jealous... there seemed to be a special bond between Lotus & Leonardo. :shrug:... there ya go.
