    GAH! I had to miss last week's episode to accept a certificate saying I'm smart. And my roommate's crappy VCR didn't record the episode! Damn you, FoxBox for not playing last week's episode as a repeat anymore!

    I just noticed Baxter Stockman has Yami Yugi's voice. -_-

    I love this new Baxter. He rocks!

    I can't accept that Shredder was beaten so easily. I just can't.

    Geez Shredder, you've really dropped the ball these past few episodes.

    What happened to Baxter's self-healing things?

    Geez, Baxter doesn't wanna die, does he?

    LOL! Clever, Donny!

    Wha? The Turtles actually hit Shredder? Amazing!

    Leonardo>>I HAVE THE POWER!!!!!!!!

    And nobody in the city notices the battle at the tower...

    Those Foot vehicles remind me of those sewer vehicles the Rat King used in the old series.

    Like I said in the Jackie Chan play-by-play, this has some really good fighting.

    Why is it the heroes suddenly become more skilled without doing any training at all? Last time they could barely keep up with the Elite Ninjas, and now they kicked their butts easily.

    Guardian-Dude>>Leo. I want to tell you about the Matrix.

    If only they had a Manslayer with god-like speed.

    Shread-Head with Leo's katanas. Nice.

    Those are some cool shots.

    The armor was EMPTY!?

    First Movie all over again!

    Did he just decapitate Shredder?

    I guess the armor MUST have been empty... somehow...

    "Empty" armor walks, thought. Creepy cool. And from what he says, Saki sounds A LOT older than he seems. Just what IS he? Want more.

    "Why is it the heroes suddenly become more skilled without doing any training at all? Last time they could barely keep up with the Elite Ninjas, and now they kicked their butts easily."

    Morale, maybe? The turtles WERE pretty shook up over Leo back then. Plus, it also happened to the Foot in "The Shredder Strikes Back pt. 2"

    I'm surprised that Leo chopped off the Shredder's head and didn't say, "Look, it's a robot!" It brings to the twist that the Shredder is maybe an immortal being.

    The sword of Tengu is destroyed with the building, but Splinter is missing. Does that mean the rest of the season will be spent looking for Splinter?

    Rating: 8/10

    Pretty much. The next episode sounds like a filler, and the final two episodes will be "The Search for Splinter".

    The dialogue may be cliche at times, and the pacing may be off, but I'll say this: the new TMNT series absolutely ROCKS when it counts!!! My jaw dropped when Shredder's head fell off, and then again when his body gets up, picks up the head and walks off into the flames?!! Sheesh, what *is* this guy? RZetlin is right, there's definitely a lot more to this Shredder than meets the eye. Hopefully we find out more when the season 2 episodes start.

    Baxter was handled pretty well. I loved how he kept coming back, when in any other cartoon show the writers would've just let him fall to his death. Here though, they account for his genius by giving him rocket boosters - this guy just won't give up! However, it also made his defeat a little anti-climatic. You'd think his invincible armor would extend to his joints somehow as well. Still, they had to clear him out as quick as they could to make room for the Shredder battle. And since Baxter didn't really die, it leaves him open for some appearances down the line.

    Best. Episode. Ever.

    I thought it was interesting that Leo didn't have any problem killing Shredder (even it he wasn't successful). On most shows like this the hero would always say it's wrong to kill or something.

    Good episode. A-
    The world's 225 richest people now have a combined wealth of $1 trillion. That's equal to the combined annual income of the world's 2.5 billion poorest people.

    Something to think about.

    This leads for some interesting developments in Season 2, for instance how is Shredder still alive? And where will he go now? I know in the original comics, this was his last appearance, am I right? And they actually showed Leo decapitating Shredder, that's something I didn't expect.
