this was a good episode, very creepy and chilling. Loved the way the ticks dropped on the floor the way they did. the animation was great and the scenes with decaying body of Bishop made me raise an eyebrow. It was pretty graphic, and very ballsey of a cartoon. I particulary enjoyed the Bishop/Baxter interaction. They do seem to have a better working relationship with one another than Baxter did with Shredder. Ans it seems that Bishop actually values Baxter, which was cool. By the way Bishop is such a badass! I loved when Baxter was sturtering out excuses about theories, and Bishop tells him in that very calm, cold voice "give me your favorite", was so great!
I for one was felt very sorry for Donatello in this episode, he seems to have taken the loss of his lab and findings very hard. My heart went out to him. I thought Raphael's comment about him being cranky in the beginning was very astute. This was really a Donatello episode. This guy is forever getting the short end of the stick. Oh, and it was nice to see Leonardo take a back seat in this eppy. And Reaphael had me on the floor laughing, for some reason, Especially with his "Yeah, Thats right! You better run away!" to that bug. And is it me or did that shot of the sewer gate with the water trickling out of its openings remind you of the classic cartoons famous sewer gate opening?
