They appear and act like teenagers and Spliter acts like a papa
I really love the relationship Splinter has with his "sons". I love how he can be serious one minute but playful another. Like a real father would be.
Question: Didn't that happen in the 80s cartoon? I don't think you can call yourself a "hardcore TMNT fan" without knowing about it.
Not that I am one, but really you should know better...
Umm isn't that how it always goes?
I think it makes so much more sense. I remember being a kid watching the first live action movie and being a super fan, and even then I thought, "A rat practicing ninjutsu in his cage? That's a bit hokey". While TMNT isn't real grounded in reality to begin with, I think this change makes Splinter's character a bit more believable.
Hmmm... This is interesting
yeah but the point here is they act like teenagers. before there was never anything to suggest they were teenagers in previous series. in this they look and act like teenage boys
i'm not sure. i dont mind because it was how it was in the cartoon and to me it makes more sense that he was a martial artist that turned into a rat rather than a rat that turned more human like.
to me that makes more sense as to how he would know more about the human world as it were. in this series it makes sense as there is 3 examples of people being turned into mutants and seems like it goes be the "you turn into what your touched last" thing
Question does it bother the hardcore TMNT fans that Splinter was born as a human who was later turn into a mutant Rodent?
That actually could be fun to watch. In original series they acted like mentally challenged manchilds and 2000 version was bit more serious and they acted like adults.
It's SPLINTER, not SPLITER. I know, simple mistake. But it's making me laugh and cry at the same time. Also, I agree.
Maybe not the original cartoon, but yeah, everything else pretty much portrays them that way.
Well they are supposed to be 'teenage' turtles
I think this is the first time they have ever been portrayed as actually teenagers. I like it.
Feels natural...well as natural as a family of a rat and 4 turtles can be anyways.
In the older cartoons and movies I thought it was weird that the turtles were "teenagers" but they acted like they were 25
Well Splinter and the turtles are younger in this incarnation
