What dangers lurk underground...

"Notes From the Underground was a three-part story arc that ran during the first season of TMNT (and draws its name from a piece of classic literature about the human condition). When monsters show up on the sensors around their lair, the Turtles investigate and are drawn to an abandoned Foot genetics lab and a mysterious underground city. But something watches from the shadows...
Whats nice about the new Ninja Turtles show is that it has a sense of continuity. While this is a three-parter, it draws from plot points introduced back in episode four, and ends in a way that sets up the next few episodes in the series. The connection to the Foot clan connects this arc to the overall Shredder saga, and later stories in seasons 2 and 3 follow up and conclude the events depicted here. Serialization in children's programming is always appreciated.
My only complaint is that the pacing of the three-parter is slightly off, with part three feeling a bit rushed after the strong build up of the two parts before it. It's nothing remotely damaging, but still worth mentioning.
Overall, a decent saga and good entertainment. If you can stomach paying regular price for only three episodes (like most of Funi's regular discs), this is worth purchasing."
Great three-parter. Buy it!

"So this three-parter chronacles the adventures of the Tmnt in an abandoned Foot genetics lab and beyond. The Shredder captured several humans from office buildings and homes around the city and mutated them into his slaves to begin digging around the sewers for a certain... enemy of his, and it ain't the turtles. But these creatures went berserk and destroyed the lab, killing all the workers in the process. But the turtles befriend some of them and together they must stop a mysterious villain with plans of his own. This three-parter has a cliffhanger ending, so by the next volume along with this one, folks."
Great DVD, but beware...
