The end of season 1

"This set contains a strong batch of episodes from the latter half of season 1 of the new TMNT series. Mirroring a story arc from the comics and the 1990 movie, the Shredder attacks the Turtles, forcing them to regroup at Casey's farmhouse before returning to New York for the final showdown (or so they think). Afterwards they must find Splinter, abducted by the same aliens responsible for the Turtles' origin! Elsewhere the Turtles find monsters in an underground Foot genetics lab, and there is a nice tribute episode to comic legend Jack Kirby.
Again no bonus features, which is disappointing. However the episodes are good, and the price is relatively cheap for the amount of content. I agree it's annoying to still have the TV-Y7 tags at the beginning, hopefully 4Kids will get rid of them next time. I haven't had any disc errors on my copy, and hopefully you won't either.
If you have any interest in the Ninja Turtles, this is recommended."
Shredder Is Back But Buyer Beware!

"I should use the video review for this. This is probably the best Ninja Turtles series yet, however I have a warning about this DVD set. There seems to be a glitch on disk 2 episode 3 "Return To New York - Part 2". You'll be watching the disk and all of a sudden everything turns into little green blocks. I then tried to go back to the menu and had the same problem, now the whole disk was messed up. I hope that this has come to the company's attention so that something can be done about it. I now have two copies but threw out the reciept for the first one so I can only return one. (It wasn't with amazon). Just a warning, better not buy a copy of this DVD until the problem is straitened out."
Shredder Strikes Back

"The 2nd part of the first season, they finally decided to cram more episodes & in order with these sets. I have all of them so far & of course i think this is one of the best part of the season yet. Part 2 of 2 continued on from:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Season 1 - Part 1 of 2 - (2 DVDs - 12 Episodes)
The turtles will no longer fear the Shredder as a threat, they finally realize they can defeat him & while they're not masters yet they definatly show no mercy for Shredder. Unlike the 'original tmnt' series like:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Original Series (Volume 1)
This series is more action-filled & more storyboarded with tons of cliffhangers i would think that comic-fans & true TMNT fans will love this dvd. As well as others make sure you check out:

Much better than the origional TV Cartoon

"The Original TMNT are back!
I was always a fan of TMNT ever since, back in the 1980's, I ask the young Army Lieutenant why the "heck" he had turtles with Martial Art's weapons on his desk? The Lieutenant stammered that he had been roommates or friends, can't remember which, with the cartoon's creator in college. Little did he know that I worked for a SiFi Game Company on the side or that I was close friends with the then editor of, "Dragon Magazine". I was mildly interested, so I looked into the "underground" comic that featured TMNT and fell in love with it. The deeper than normal comic book story line and edgier banter were what I think grabbed my attention.
Jump forward a few years to the original TV cartoon. A big disappointment in my eyes. The animation was far too commercial, or what Jack Kirby would call, "industrial", the banter was not edgy and the dialogue was abysmal and pizza obsessed.
Jump forward again, 2009. Kids and Grandson are up for the 4th. Grandson is in love with, (don't get ahead of me here), you guessed it, TMNT. As I tried to run herd on a way too energetic 4 year old one night, I asked him if he wanted to watch cartoons. Of course he come bouncing up with TMNT. I sigh and say, "O.K., we'll watch these", as I reluctantly fire up the DVD Player.
Much to my surprise this was not the original cartoon. The stories are much better, the animation is border line Aname and rather well done. Granted that the plots are not quit as gritty as the original comic's, (but only slightly dumbed down for young kids), but they are 100 times better than the original cartoons. I ended up watching the whole set of DVD's long after the little tike had fallen asleep.
All & all highly recommended if you were a fan of the original comics. If You were a fan to the original cartoons, go rent one of each and watch them one after the other. I think that you will find that this is the better of the two. I also thought that the superior tribute to comic legend Jack Kirby was a very nice touch.
