This show is the best. It has great action, amazing designs, kick-ass episodes, and some awesome first 5 seasons. Despite Fast-Forward and Back To The Sewers doing bad. Turtles Forever also were great. Who thought shredder was that lethal. Leo, Don, Raph, and Mikey were amazing in this show. It rules as the best of the whole franchise. This show was amazing. It had the dark tone of the original Mirage comics, while also sometimes being funny like the 1987 cartoon. I feel like this was the most comic accurate version of the TMNT franchise, although the same can be said for the 1990 movie. The action was fast-paced, deep, gritty, fun, and just fantastic. The personalities and voices for the turtles are perfect, especially Raphael. I can almost see the comic version of himself speaking, which is a relief since the comic version of Raph is hot-headed, aggressive, short-tempered, but he is also the most loyal, emotional, and relatable. He was like the teenaged version of me. Thankfully he wasn't the sarcastic goof
