Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:
As the four brothers continue their fight against evil, namely Shredder, Shredder's henchmen, and the Kraang, the Turtles will face a new foe that has a larger impact on their lives then they could expect. Slash, a new turtle is in the midst of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, will force Raphael to deal with a friend that's not too thrilled with how Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo treat Raph. While trying to deal with the never ending torrent of evil coming at them in forms of the Rat King, a mutated fungus, and the Kraang, the four brothers also have to deal with their master, Splinter, being mind controlled. With so much fighting and so many enemies, the Turtles might be in a tight spot but when they get help from the vigilante Casey Jones. This new crime fighter likes to wear a hockey mask and talks more trash then a landfill holds, but the Turtles find that they might be able to trust Casey Jones to fight with them.

The Good, The Bad and Casey Jones:
This animation, or cartoon, however you want to describe it, has been providing a lot of fun episodes to watch on a continous basis. Here in this new DVD, the six episodes center, kind of, around the new character of Casey Jones. Now if you are an adult fan of the show, maybe this is the first time that you've seen the TMNT's, you might not notice or care that Casey Jones is now a teenage kid himself. However, if you are like me, an adult that's familiar with the history of these characters you will notice that he is a teenage kid and might not like it. Though I myself did like that they made him a teenage kid. For one reason having him as a teenage kid will allow him and April to continue the story of them like in the past versions. They are basically the Romeo & Juliet of the world where mutated turtles become ninjas so it would have been more odd and out of place if they had kept Casey Jones as an adult while April was now a teenage girl herself.

Speaking of April, that's another aspect about this DVD set of the show, there is a shocking back story into April's life. It's something that I wasn't expecting to see but it does give a good twist to the show. Which is another reason why this show is really fun to watch as well as being good, they continue to give us new twists and turns to the plots and characters. With the new characters of Casey Jones and Slash added to the mix, these six episodes show that this newer version of the Ninja Turtles is worth watching. We still get the humor of the turtles that have made this show good but with new characters thrown into the mix, the show builds on the foundation to only become a stronger and better show.

The animation remains sharp with bright colors, great detail, and a smooth fluid motion to make it look as good as it is to watch. What this DVD offers are episodes that both adults and kids can enjoy watching, it has fun humor, cool fight scenes, and though they are fighting a lot in it, the show has a moral value of doing good over evil. The only real complaint I have with this DVD is that it's only 6 episodes included on the disc. This show is smart, it's witty, it's funny, it looks really good, but give me more than only 6 episodes on one disc. By the time the show ends I'm left with wanting to watch more because it is such a good show but I can't because there's only the six that's been given. Though that don't really change the outcome of the show itself, though I would still like to have more to watch on this set.
