Storyline

In this live-action TV series, the Turtles are older than in the movies or cartoon, and are joined by a fifth, female Turtle. "Venus De Milo" mutated with the other 4 Turtles but was washed away with the current in the sewer into New York's Chinatown before Splinter came across the turtles. After learning the Shinobi arts in China for 17 years, Venus has returned to New York. The Turtles are now faced with new villains such as Dragon Lord, Bonesteel and Vam Mi.

Trivia

The series followed the continuity of the live-action films with the Turtles living in the same abandoned train station featured in the second and third films, Splinter's ear is slashed as it was in the original film series, and Michaelangelo's signature weapon being a pair of tonfa instead of his traditional Nunchucks which he gave away to Mitsu at the end of the third film.

Shell Shocked
6 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In life there is are some things you don't do.

You don't tug on Superman's Cape, You don't spit into the wind, You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger and you don't turn Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into a Power Ranger's show.

And that is what exactly what Saban did, he took the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and turn it into another take along with his famous Power Rangers, VR Troopers Big Bad Beetleborgs Mystric Knights Of Tir Na Nog and whatever else he created back in the 90s.

To say this was a insult to the turtle fans would not give it justice because only seen some of this series and all I can say is that I've seen enough.

First off they bring in a new female turtle name Venus and to make matter worse the four turtles we grew up cheering that are suppose to be brothers are not brothers in this series so this mean that Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo.

All for bringing on a female turtle? Oh no sir that is just the worse idea in the long sad history of bad ideas.

It just this series should have never been created and it's clear to see why it only lasted one season.

Shame on you Saban for this disgrace to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles You left us all in Shell Shocked and that's not a good thing
