So I finished season 3 and started a bit of season 4.Well,they butchered Return to new York.The epic story line about the turtles return and victory over Shredder is reduced to one episode of them fighting 3 clone Shredders and running away.But things do get a bit better after the return to NY.I liked the Mutanimals and Mondo Gecko,and Triceratons.I didnt like Hun and Bishop thou.Im not sure why they even bothered using the names.Bebop and Rocksteady i found just bland.Amount of butt jokes REALLY skyrocketed in this season.Im not even sure why Casey is in this show?He doesnt do anything,hes not interesting or in any way important.Turtles in time was just okay(no aardvark cameo this time thou)
I did like the Fugitoid,but this season doesn't see to offer much more then sail space and get into adventures resolvable in the span of one episode.I hope Im wrong there.Also,they really went out of their way to provide a love interest for every turtle.For some reason.
Somehow,for every thing I liked,there end up being 2 that I disliked.

I dont know why they didnt just name the series Teenage Mutant Ninja April.Elder Aeon?The heck was that?
On the other hand,Super Shredder was interesting,for about half an episode.

See, I quite liked the April episode. I think it's a good thing that April has more development and agency as a character in this iteration considering what a major character in the franchise she is and how other iterations over time (such as the 2003 series and the IDW comics) have given her larger roles beyond damsel in distress and snooping reporter.

Super Shredder was alright. I was more interested in the stuff going on with Splinter in that arc.

A larger role is okay,but here she somehow always ends up being more important then the turtles.And gets some new super special awesome powers every 3-4 episodes.Like a self insert character in a bad fan fanfiction.
But hey look,Channel 6 building.

Tokka is back.They riff on Gamera movies a bit.Passable.
And the final few episodes seem pretty dark according to wikipedia.

We still don't know what is up with that and we probably never will.
