Like most kids in my age bracket I saw and enjoyed the 1987 series. I caught bits and pieces of the 2003 series and I felt they did a good job characterizing the turtles, though the plot seemed somewhat weak. How does the 2012 series look to differ?
I'll watch part 2 tonight, but so far:
-Splinter was once human, not the pet of.
-Leo seems to be "playful". 1st episode is when they get to go up top, so all 4 have that sheltered attitude (when the pop up top, they see trash and a bum and think every thing looks wonderful).
-Their 1st slice of pizza make me laugh. To think when I was a kid, I would eat pizza all the time because they did as well :3
-Utroms (I don't remember there being more than 1 in the old one, Krang). But if the toys are right, the Utroms are called Kraangs this time around, and their are many (like old comic and in the 2003/6 series).
-I dig the animation. It is like cel shaded meets 3D.
