Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Episode 4 The Hot Rodding Teenagers from Dimension X
I’ll be honest, this is my last favorite of the fiveepisodes because it features the Neutrinos. Who I never liked, ever and this was one episode that when I always watched the mini-series, I tended to rather fast forward through.
Granted, their dialogue was more timely in the 1980s or early 1990s, but it was still slightly cringe worthy. They are rebellious teenagers who are being charged with the crime of wanting to have fun. Really when you think about it, angsty teenagers do in fact vary little the universe over.
And yeah, Krang did warn Shredder that there was no telling what might come through that portal and it was those blasted Neutrinos. Zak, Dask, and Kala, if you must know the names of those…things. General Traag and his association Lt. Granitor(who if I’m not mistaken was not named until the second Ninja Turtles video game), follow them, get into it with the Ninja Turtles.
And the Ninja Turtles on the other hand, decide to tack Baxter Stockman’s old van and convert it to the Party Wagon/Turtle Van that we all know and love. But he’s in the crazy house right about now, so
And the Stone Warriors release the absolute worst weapon ever. So laser blasts from Dimension X cannot destroy this weather satellite, but a sword can. Again, just rather nitpicking.
And interspecies romance involving the Turtles…yeah I know that sounds awfully hypocritical for someone who advocated a relationship between an evil ninja and an alien brain in the last review, but still Mike and Kala…no just no. Then again, teenage hormones were likely with the mutagen.
So this episode while not bad, was ponderous and introduced some of my least favorite characters. 5/10 for this episode. You can watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Episode 4 the Hot Rodding Teenagers from Dimension X on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 1 DVD.
