It's technically a 3 parter, but it continues directly into another 3-part arc, so I'm guessing the whole things gonna be 6 parts (kinda like how the utrom arc was 10 episodes from search for splinter to secret origins)Originally Posted by Deadly Messiah
I loved the appearance by the Justice Force, as it affirms speculation by The Big Bad and others here that other factions would get involved. Their space battle is reminiscient of JL's Starcrossed, even though the storyboarding isn't nearly as good and the Justice Force is defeated (I laughed when that happened, Justice League this team ain't)
Cameo by Shredder (dudes in Japan now!), always the schemer.
I love how Bejing was ripped from the ground Not only does it give the arc a more epic feel (not everything takes place in NYC), but I believe it also sets up an episode later in the season.
They stole the covert infiltration bit from Star Wars (and more specifically ESB and Shadows of the Empire), but at least they acknowledged it.
I have some minor nitpicks with the episode, but most noticibly was that unecessarily long fighter chase in the middle. Otherwise, this was another awesome episode. 4.5 stars.
