Yeah, that was a hard one to take. So many nerds from '77 on must've grown up having a crush on her

I mean, I knew it was coming, but just hearing Carrie say "May the Force be with you" hurt :(

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

I remember him from the old days on Breaker High airing on YTV

Also, Ryan Gosling. Ugh, go #### yourself Ryan Gosling, with your perfect bone structure

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:26 AM)

Since there's way more nominees than winners in every category that's not exactly unusual.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:25 AM)

Even then, I think it lost more nominations than it won.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:24 AM)

I think the reason La La Land won so many awards is because it was basically Hollywood stroking its own ego

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:20 AM)

Kinda glad. I like Emma Stone, but for whatever reason I can't stand that movie. I'm surprised it didn't win though, as it was typical Oscar bait

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

This is just goddamn surreal.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

Holy shit. It had the second-most nominations of any movie, and La La Land just lost Best Picture.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Yeah, same. "You're Welcome" is honestly the best song in the movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:06 AM)

I liked the Moana song, though personally I enjoyed You're Welcome a little bit more because of the humor.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:04 AM)

Ah, well. As much as him not getting an Oscar hurts, Lin-Manuel has a shitload of awards already, so missing out on one isn't too bad. The guy managed to hit the jackpot with the Tonys for Hamilton and win a Grammy for it and get an Emmy... Somewhere. Don't know where he got the Emmy.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:02 AM)

@NVK: I realize that, but I still don't like that a terrible Zak Snyder film managed to even get an award.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Look, I can understand The Force Awakens not getting a single award. Hell, I can even understand why Transformers lost to The Golden Compass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

But Moana and Suicide Squad weren't nominated for the same things.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 11:47 PM)

We officially live in a world where a film involving Zak Snyder is apparently more deserving of an award than Lin-Manuel Miranda.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 February 2017 - 10:58 PM)

I was pretty shocked Star Trek Beyond lost out in Best Makeup to Suicide Squad. Killer Croc looked good, but Trek had a lot of good alien makeup

@  Maruten : (26 February 2017 - 10:36 PM)

I was surprised to see that everyone's so into La La Land. On paper it seems right up my alley, but I thought it was pretty... meh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 February 2017 - 09:38 PM)

I read that as EPCOT status

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 09:26 PM)

I have a sinking feeling La La Land is going to win Best Song and keep Lin-Manuel Miranda from achieving EGOT status.

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

So before this falls off the first page and is lost to all time, do we have any word on when the show will be back?

February 5, according to some sources.

In this latest episode, we get another element taken from the 2003 cartoon: Bishop being affiliated with the Earth Protection Force. Only in this version, he's now an ambassador working with the EPF, rather than leading it like 2003 Bishop did. Apparently, Earth and Dimension X signed a peace treaty between each other at some previous point offscreen.

You misunderstand. I was referring to his now being affiliated with the EPF in this episode, which is new. Before, he was only working with his own kind, the Utrom.

For me personally it's been some bad experiences with Nickelodeon UK and even the US side. When you actually get insulted to your face it does turn you away from something. Add in the various leaks about how Nick isn't very nice to their talent and my interest just plummeted on a reboot I was lukewarm on anyway.

 

Though I do know someone who works on the show as an animator, who sounds to be having fun at least.

To be a little fair, none of it was depicted that graphically, with the injury inflicted in a mostly unseen manner that focused more on Tiger Claw's facial reaction to it rather than to the injury itself. And the result of said injury (that Randy mentioned) didn't look horrific or too disturbing. If anything, it looked more like a Halloween prop by the particular way it was rendered in the CG art style.

Man this show has been shit for a while.

Like ever since season 2 or whatever.

I heard they got a new show runner...which makes sense because teen titans never got this bad.

The tigerclaw vs the turtles fight was the GOAT for the series.

So just looked at the TMNT lineup at Toyfair over at Toyark

 

And oddly there really isn't too many spoilers for the upcoming season at all. In fact the majority of the line is redecos of older figures and oddball sublines like the 90's series. One I'm sure is unconnected to the show are two waves of Turtles cosplaying WWE stars, which I believe the first wave is already out at retail. They were about the same size as the 90's movie turtles that came out last year. Of the new stuff we will spoiler tag

 

Spoiler

 

But onward to episode discussion. Requiem aired and the penultimate episode of the season went out with a bang....if we hadn't played this card 4 times already :rolleyes

Essentially Baxter perfects the mutagen Formula and Super Shredder takes down the entire team of the good guys from the Mutanimals to the Bros, Casey, April and of course the duel between Splinter and Super Shredder.

 

Spoiler

 

If anything the entire episode feels like we are doing this again? Really? I think the best part of the episode was the end of our Chris Bradford and his 2Ruff Krew season at the beginning of the episode where they pull a great laugh on the red sky seasons of the original series.Still with the direction we are going I think we might be in our penultimate season. I looked at Wikipedia and thankfully season 5 is only about a month off from the 4ths finale but I'm not sure where they will head after the current storyline.

Tons of TMNT references in this episode.

 

The monster that Chris Bradford fights in his cartoon's final episode is the mutant form of Carter from the 80's cartoon's Red Sky era.

 

Shredder falls into a garbage truck that Casey activates with a "whoops" like in the first live action movie from the 90's.

 

Shredder sticks his hand out of the garbage truck roof in the same manner as 2003 Shredder stuck his own hand out of the water tower rubble in "The Shredder Strikes, Part 2".

 

The Wolf building is an obvious nod to Fred Wolf, and it has a water tower on it, which was what Splinter used to crush the Shredder in the 2003 series during their first battle.

 I mentioned the first two earlier some in the Spoiler and some vaguely as not to give it all away.

 

Actually the Hand coming from the rubble could be more dated back to the end of TMNT II:: The Secret of the Ooze, especially since Super Shredder is the hand bursting from the rubble at that point. But In the latter two they actually do survive (Discounting any Next Mutations on the movies side)

 

And the Wolf building has appeared in the show before. Pretty sure it was where they first fought Shredder in season 1. Maybe the same episode that Fishface and Dogpound were mutated but I'd have to get back to you on that. But I know it's already been on the show.
