    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles "Meet Casey Jones" Talkback (Spoilers)

    Like This Thread!
    Today at 10:30 am, the Fox Box airs the TMNT episode, Meet Casey Jones. Here's the talkback.

    Raphael is a little cooped up underground with only his brothers and Master Splinter. When Raphael almost clobbers Michelangelo in some brotherly sparring, it's pretty apparent that Raphael needs to get out — let off a little steam. But, when he meets up with Casey Jones, a vigilante erring a little to the right of justice, Raphael must face the reality of his own hothead ways. Luckily, the two hotheads learn to work together when they find themselves in a Purple Dragons' trap set specifically for Casey in the dark, desolate wilds of Central Park.

    [taken from 4Kids Entertainment Press Release]

    "Leaping Lanny and Randy Savage are brothers, and Randy Savage, your name is Randy Poffo. THAT'S RIGHT, RANDY POFFO. You're ashamed of going around calling yourself Poffo so you probably got the name Savage because you're ashamed of putting yourself on the same level as your brother because he is much better than you are. YOUR BROTHER IS A HUMAN BEING. YOU'RE NOTHING BUT A SCUMBAG. THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE; YOU'RE A DOG. YOUR NAME IS POFFO." - Ronnie Garvin to Randy Savage, ICW Wrestling, 1980.

    Raph almost killed Mikey! That was awesomely intense.It looks like Raph has a berserker mode. So far I'm loving the episode but I'm not digging Casey Jone's voice or his line delivery.

    I can deal with it though. Because things got better after the second commercial. These actors are new to the characters I guess it'll take me as well as them time to get used to stuff.

    Still I really really like this episode especially the last couple of minutes, "I'm the pretty one" "Only a 6 Raph ?" .."It's all I got bro"
    "Uh Oh"

    Most quoteable 4 minutes of my life.

    I like this episode a LOT but I'm in agreement about Casey's line delivery. It is off tremendously, but I give him time to get better.

    I will say that do prefer a COHERENT Casey to the nutjob in TMNT G1. ^_^ I'll put in more input when the ep finishes.

    Another great episode. It's going to take a while to get used to Casey's voice though, Elias Koteas' performance from the movies is hard to top for me. That murderous look in Raphael's eyes when he was sparring with Mike was chilling. Funniest part of the episode was Leo doing his split kick three times, don't see him showing off like that too often.


    I don't think there's any doubt that this is the best cartoon on Saturday mornings now.

    Yay, we got to see Raph use his motorcycle! Good episode in my opinion. And yeah, Casey's voice will take a little time to get used to, but it was the same way with the TMNT's new voices and I'm already used to them.

    Today was a very good episode. I'm surprised 4Kids allowed Rapheal to almost kill Mike. How accurate was this episode to the comics?

    Another great episode here. They finally build the battle shell and shell cycle, and there was ample character development for Raph. Great to see him and Casey go at it like that.

    Yeah, Casey's voice sounds off - actually I think him, April, and Baxter all sound a little too typical saturday-morning cartoonish. Too bad they couldn't borrow Andrea Romano to cast the voices. The turtles and splinter, however, sound dead on.

    What's the deal with the elevator? Was it made kinda alien-looking just to be cool, or is this something from the comics that'll be expanded on?

    > It looks like Raph has a berserker mode. <

    That's an element *straight* out of the original comics.

    > How accurate was this episode to the comics? <

    It's close to being a direct lift from the issue that introduced Casey Jones. They just padded out the plot a bit.

    April sounds almost just like her old voice and Baxter...well yeah he sounds stereotypical but that's not really a bad thing. I'ma ctually used to Casey's voice now (afterw atching the episodea agin on tape) it's just his dilevery that was off during his first couple of scenes.
