  • Not the best episode ever, but still a nice, well-written, decent episode.

    I don't know exactly know what to say but this was adventerous and slightly funny. This wasn't exactly the best episode I've ever seen, but it's not exactly the worst, I have a feeling that I'm gonna like this new Fast Forward Season. Well, at least Shredder has finally been finished off once and for all. Anyway, that's all I have time to say, thanks for taking the time to read my reveiw. I certaintly look "forward" to this new season. Heh heh heh. Um, sorry I couldn't resist typing that pun. Hee hee hee hee. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rule!moreless
  • An accident sends the Ninja Turtles and their master to the future, where they meet the great-great grandson of two old friends.

    Although the "going to the future" idea is somewhat cliche, I still like it. Though I'm a little annoyed that they had to skip over a season (maybe that's partly why it's called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward), I'll still watch it.

    I can't wait to see more of the adventures of everyone's favorite ninja reptiles and the descendant of Casey Jones and April O'Neil. (I just *knew* those two were right for each other! ^^)moreless
  • Why did everyone have a panic attack over Fast Forward? It just seems like "Turtles in Space."

    I checked out Fast Forward and felt that it was just your basic 2003 turtles. The turtles get zapped to some alternate reality, have no idea where they went, run into some weird aliens, and meet new people. In the end, the are being hunted by the law enforcement and have been split up some, and reunited. Same 2003 storyline, just a very annoying theme song that makes you want some aspirin. Fast Forward really doesn't change anything, I just hope the lost season is coming soon. If 4Kids have just finished that first, fans and I wouldn't be disgruntled about starting a new plate before we finished the Ninja Tribunal one.

  • A new time+same old villians= an okay, but slightly disappointing show

    This new season of TMNT started off with quite an intresting start.

    What I liked:

    1) The turtles:

    How they kept all the behavoirs and voices the same, even Master Splinter.

    2) The Fights:

    They kept the basic coolness of the fights, and how they stay in the ninja art.

    3) The Theme:

    They stayed within bounds and didn't make it all geeky high tech.

    What I didn't like:

    1) The Theme Song:

    Not even the classic one was this horrible. It took the kick-butting character right out! It made it seem like a joke! Like this is Sonic X or something!

    2: The Police:

    They are annoying and irritating, not even remotely funny! And how in the world did NY Cops become so 'bloomin' British? It's horrible!

    3: The Ending of Last Season:

    We were left with a cliff hanger in "Ninja Tribunal" what's going to happen with that?

    4) Casey and April:

    I knew they were going to get together, but how in the world did they get so rich? That makes no sense, they were always moving with hardly any money.

    What I somewhat liked:

    1) Cody:

    Though I did not enjoy his voice, and I thought he should have been a little older with longer hair, his character is not all together displeasing. I like his spunk and his want for adventure. I always liked "poor, little rich boys".

    2) The animation:

    It was okay, changed from the original, and a little fake, but I liked it.

    Altogether, it is okay, but neglects the dark seriousness of the first 4 seasons. Time travel's not new, and the Turtles have gone through it before. I don't the show will last longer than a season if they don't shape up.moreless
  • Hey, it wasn't as horrible as was expected by us hard core turtle fans. Though I'll admit it wasn't the greatest episode in turtle history, it was pretty decent.

    Gotta say I loved the nakedness jokes about splinter and seeing all four of the guys without their stuff on for most of the episode *blush/grin*

    I also really liked Raph's line in the beginning. "You didn't just change the channel, Mike. You changed the whole freakin' world!" I laughed and kept repeating it to myself all day long.

    So the plot/storyline I can live with, the theme song doesn't excite me but it doesn't make me wanna puke, but the edgier looking animation kinda ticked me off. I don't like it. Nope. Nuh-uh. No. I like having curves where they're needed. Sheesh! is that too much to ask? I loved the original animation for seasons 1-5 (well, 1-4 technically since no one's seen 5 yet). The guys just looked like their heads had been smashed or something wierd. Slinter looked ok but much more sharp than I'm used to. Before he looked like a nice fuzzy daddy rat. Now I think you'd end up nursing a couple puntures from pricks and pokes of his fur if you tried to hug him.

    ok, so what was that robot's name? Surling? Sirling? Like a steak? confused. but maybe he'll actually turn out to be an ok character...

    Cody looks to be interesting. He made me laugh; as soon as we met him it was like watching a fangirl stuck inside a boy's body!!! *giggle* *giggle* *laughs hysterically*

    (ok moving on..) Obviously he's not going to stick around his little safety zone, specially not with the turtles around. I like Cody's character so far:Probably only cuz I was able to identify really quickly with him (maybe I'm just weird) I love his voice and I do like the way the artists drew him, but I have this wierd thought that they just don't mesh well together. Like the voice just doesn't match the image. They're both really good but I just don't like 'em together.

    Ok, wow, looks like I've written my 3cents worth here...

    So, to conclude, this series may not turn out to be half bad, but I'll be so happy when the guys get back to 2006 and out of sci-fi land. Until then I'm ready to enjoy Cody's presence as well as Sirling (?) and the whole slew of newbies we're about to meet along the way.

    PS. The robot cheif of police: liked him at first but by his third line I was ready to disasemble him and ship his peice by peice to the Sahara to melt. That is all.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (9)

    • When the turtles and Splinter are transported into the year 2105, Mikey says "Ahh! The t.v.'s gone!" Leo replies "Forget the t.v., the whole lair is trashed." The captions show up as Don saying the line.

    • When Serling is taking Master Splinter's measurements, Raph walks off-screen to retrive his mask from one of Cody's displays, but he is accidently drawn with his mask on during this scene.

    • At the beginning of the episode, the turtles lose all their gear, headbands, belts and weapons, and Splinter loses his robe, yet the rug that Splinter had wrapped around them came through and falls away after they have been transported.

    • In past episodes whenever we see Master Splinter without his robe, his fur is completly gray, but in the begininng, he has a patch of white fur on his tummy.

    • Throughout all of Season 4, you could see that Leo has a piece of his shell missing but in the Fast Forward Season, his shell is back to normal.

    • When the screen goes to a close up of Casey's golf bag in Cody's collection of TMNT stuff in the background to the left is one of Baxter Stockman's many robot suits, directly behind is Shredder's armor peeking over the top, and to the right is the Fugitoid's robot body. The strange part is that the Fugitoid's body was shipped off to float aimlessly about space after the turtles held his funeral in Worlds Collide part 3 Season 3 when he supposedly died. Cody must be pretty stinkin' rich to have the cash to locate and retrieve it. Of course, it could be a replica.

    • Leonardo said, "15 years of training", which means the turtles mutated 15-16 years ago making them 15-16 years old.

    • Beginning with this "Fast Forward" season, the animation is different than the previous seasons.

    • Season 5 will have a title change the show will now be called "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward" in it the Turtles are transported 99 years in the future to aid the grandson of Casey and April a hand.

  • QUOTES (11)

  • NOTES (8)

    • First appearances of Cody Jones, Serling and the Slavetraders. It's also the first mentioning and viewing of the "O'Neil Tech" office.

    • When this episode aired the second time in repeat, it featured a new opening that included upcoming villains.

    • Dedicated to George Elliot McClain

    • Villains: Street Venoms

    • Behind the smuggles' capes have the close symbols of the Foot Clan from the last four seasons.

    • This "Fast Forward" season has a new theme song with the lyrics and music completely changed and with each of the Turtles saying his own line.

    • The following items can be seen in Cody's penthouse: The turtles' masks, Shredder's armor, a black curtain with the foot ninja symbol on it. Casey's hockey mask, Casey's golf bag, Casey's weapons, one of Stockman's robot suits, an empty can from the TCRI building, and Professor Honeycutt's original robot body or it could've been a replica of the professor's robot body.

    • Two Triceraton Soilders delivering newspapers can be seen on Earth. Triceratons were last seen in the Season 3 Alien Invasioin/Worlds Collide episodes.


    • Bebop
      While Michelangelo is being tossed between flying cars, he lands on a windshield of a car being flown by a brown pig with a purple mohawk and purple glasses. This cameo's appearance is an indirect homage to Bebop, a henchman of Shredder from the original 1987 TMNT cartoon series. Bebop had more of a 1980's style to his design, though, including piercings and a ponytail.

    • Sirling's personality and highly intelligent makes him act like C-3PO from the Star Wars movies.

    • Mikey: Oh, I forgot to mention, these guys can go ghostal.

      This may be a reference to the "Going Ghost" battle cry from Danny Phantom.

    • Serling: I pity the fool.

      This phrase was used often by "Mr. T" of "A-Team" fame.

    • The Turtles and Master Splinter lose all their clothes when they are transported to the future. This is also a salute towards The Terminator movies. In the movie trilogy, nothing that was inorganic(like clothes) could go through the time machine. That's why all travelers appear naked when they first appear, and Terminator robots are entirely coated in organically grown flesh.

    • When Serling first helps the Turtles, he says "Come with me if you want to live." This is a famous line from all three The Terminator movies, which is also about time travel.

    • When Mike misses Raph's hand in the truck chase scene and Raph skids onto the street Mike utter "Ruh-roh" in reference to Scooby-Doo.

    • Original TMNT cartoon: When Mikey escapes from the back of the news van he slams into a van being driven by a warthog alien with a purple mowhawk. This is a reference to Bebop from the original series. If you look closely the van bears a striking resemblance to the Turtle Shell also of the original series.

    • The title is a play on the book "Future Shock" by Alvin Toffler.
