The time jump is over??

"This set will collect the last 13 episodes of the TMNT: Fast Forward revamp. If the street date is correct, the set will be released before the last six episodes have aired on 4Kids tv (though they might air on digital cable first).
When I reviewed the previous Fast Forward volume, I was relatively disappointed with how 4Kids had revamped the series to be lighter and funnier for the kiddies. Over time, I guess my attitude has softened. While Fast Forward still isn't perfect, it's a relatively entertaining diversion. This second batch of episodes are stronger than the first, with Cody finally confronting his corrupt uncle and Shokonabo's master plan coming to light. The Turtles graduate to the ninja level of Chunin, Torbin Zixx returns to play both sides, and old foes from the past take revenge.
Really, I'm almost a little sad that Fast Forward will be cancelled and retooled, presumably re-modeled after the successful TMNT cgi film. While a return to dark and gritty is better, the Fast Forward concept was finally beginning to get its groove. Hopefully the last episodes will be memorable, and leave Fast Forward as more than a passing footnote in the Turtles' history."
A Stronger Second Half!

"A lot of people have their gripes with TMNT: Fast Forward, but I personally always supported the change since the beginning.
This Second set of 13 episodes has a stronger feel, and a much more progressive story. Now that they have established a lot of the characters, they can explain a bit more about them, or just develop them further.
Some of the better episodes are "Head of State", "DNA is Thicker than Water", "Zixxth Sense" and of course "The Day of Awakening". one of the best (and possibly the funniest) things I discover in these episodes is a particular Villain (not bishop) still lives!
I say, if you are a TMNT fan through and through, and you like or own the first 13 episodes . . . do yourself a favor and purchase this DVD set! I am REALLY glad I did."
