Just wondering why you havent uploaded one for a while is it busy schedule?
Awesome video TJ. It's strange that Venus gets picked up on her name being a work of art instead of an artist when the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (or Hero Turtles to us Europeans) had a female lizard character called Mona Lisa, again named after a work of art... oddly enough one created by Leonardo (DaVinci). Also, based on mold changes on the toy Mona Lisa might have been originally been planned to be a female turtle.It's a real shame, The Next Mutation is a series that was always doomed due to budgetary restrictions. It's an example of someone not understanding the difference between "CAN" we make a live action turtles series on this budget & "SHOULD" we make it.
That floating head at 18:00... it scares me
yay new tj tv
Hey, I'm guessing it's because she was a one shot, but how come you didn't try to compare Venus to Mona Lisa? Because Mona Lisa has pretty much all the same problems as Venus, minus that shinobi magic.
@Charles TaylorYeah, mostly because it was a one off character, no harm done and at least there she didn't feel so crowbarred in. Plus the episode was running long as it was, cant cover it all.
@cheetorprime987These videos take more time than any others I make by far, life here does not allow me to make them as fast as I'd like to.
Don't worry TG, Venus will be in the Micheal Bay TMNT sequel.
I actually liked The Next Mutation...
The roots joke was a little over doing it it's like the year 2014 racist jokes and old slave jokes are getting really old.
@bernardExcept it's not done as a racist or slave joke, it's obviously done as a parody of the movie scene and given the nature of how they changed her name, I think it's a fitting reference. There's no context to it except for an enforced name change, any racism presented in the original scene is stripped out.
My apologies then.
Loved the review of the next mutation but low and behold as I walked through a Walmart in central Florida I see Ninja Turtles the next mutation on DVD the first 7 ep. for $5.00 tempted to get it.
The worst part I think is Venus had POTENTIAL to be a good character. If played right, she could have brought something new to the team (if done right, her knowing the more mystical side of the ninja art could've been a good balance, as each of the other turtles have a unique weapon and fighting style). Instead they play her poorly. and I have NO idea why they felt the need to replace the Shredder as the Big Bad. I could understand introducing a new villainous faction, the new series did that well with the Krang and Foot Clan being separate villainous factions for the most part, but why even introduce the Shredder as still being in this universe if you're just going to beat him? Especially sense, alledgedly, this followed the TV Series, which if I recall ended with Shredder and Krang trapped in Dimension X, meaning they LITERALLY brought him back just to have Venus curbstomp him. I'm kind of surprised you didn't touch on that last point.
Well it does take less than one day to fly from New York to China, and she can probably get through security if she wears the robe and stuff, I mean, it's not like she has any questionable metal items on her person… but that leaves 8 or 9 hours for all this shit to go down.
I cannae watch it
