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. Written by

The only Ninja Turtles related TV series to not feature April O'Neal or Casey Jones. There is a rumor that they were meant to appear in second season had the show not been canceled after one season. See more »
It seems that television has once again decided to beat a dead horse. The "Turtlemania" craze was perfectly fine in the late 80's-early 90's. And, as most crazes do, it died a natural death, quietly going the way of the dinosaur. But Fox Kids just HAD to resurrect it. As with most dead things rising from the grave, the results weren't pretty. The acting was mediocre, the the costuming was atrocious, and the special effects were on par with Sesame Street. The "villains" were so transparent, Stevie Wonder could have read a newspaper through them. If you were a Turtle fan, go buy copies of the original comics and movies. If you hated the Turtles, this will simply reinforce your well-placed dislikes.
All in all, give it a miss. For that matter, in the "Star Rating System", this one owes US a few stars!
