DVD Review ( Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Volume 2 )

[*] Indicates a "Season Great"


[*]Return of the Shredder: 4.5/5 Shredder is on his own when he learns Krang won't let him use Foot soldiers or Rock warriors. Shredder gives the turtles a bad rap by hiring goons to do bank robberies and the like. The turtles soon defeat Baxter's new rat catcher, but him and Shredder get away.

[*]The Incredible Shrinking Turtles: 4.5/5 The turtles rescue an alien pilot that fell into the Central Park pond who tells them to find the "Three Fragments of Zarnov" before they get into the wrong hands. The alien gives the turtles a Crystal Converger to help them locate the fragments. However, Shredder is over hearing and tries to find the fragments himself.

It Came From Beneath The Sewers: 4.25/5 Shredder gets the second fragment and manages to turn a big plant onto the turtles. The turtles stop it, but still have to get the second fragment, which Shredder now has.

[*]The Mean Machines: 4.5/5 Shredder turns construction vehicles on the turtles as they try to locate the second fragment, which Shredder is using to do so. Shredder tells Krang that the three fragments will give him unlimited power, but Krang doesn't believe him.

[*]Curse of the Evil Eye: 4.5/5 Shredder gets the final fragment while the turtles are still looking for it. While Baxter has Shredder's helemet for a brief time, he discovers that the powers do not work on gold. After the Crystal Converger came in contact with the three fragments, it began to self-destruct. Shredder throws it in the lake, and it makes a minor explosion.

[*]The Case of the Killer Pizzas: 4.5/5 Eggs from Dimension-X find their way onto 3 different pizzas from a Pizza Bake-Off in New York. The eggs hatch in the microwave, and it's up to the turtles to stop them. ( Who else would it be? )

[*]Enter The Fly: 4.5/5 Baxter gets turned into a fly in an accident in Dimension-X, and soon comes back to earth and gets back on Shredder's side to find the turtles.

Invasion of the Punk Frogs: 4.25/5 Shredder finds 4 mutant frogs and uses him to his advantage against the turtles.

[*]Splinter No More: 4.5/5 Splinter gets turned back into a human temporarily, but the spell fades off, and he also finds humans are jerks. Meanwhile, the turtles learn Shredder has the capability of joining any dimension, and they have to stop him.

New York's Shiniest: 4.25/5 April gets a robot named REX-1 attatched to her, and he is her "Server and protector". April finds him to be annoying, but he turns out to be a big help when Shredder makes himself a robot army.

Teenagers From Dimension-X: 4.25/5 The neutrinos visit earth yet again and tell the turtles about Shredder's next plan to kill them. Shredder finds out that the neutrinos know, and he sends Rocksteady and Bebop to find them.

The Catwoman From Channel 6: 3.75/5 April accidentally gets turned into a catwoman when she is trying to do a news story at a local lab.

Return Of The Technodrome: The Technodrome returns to earth after Krang tells Shredder to attach a device to the hydroelectric plant at Niagra Falls. Krang and Shredder have the turtles in a bad spot, and right as he's about to shoot them, Krang discovers that the Technodrome doesn't have enough energy to do so. An earthquake occurs from the Technodrome, and the whole thing falls down to the center of the earth. Are Krang and Shredder gone forever?


TMNT: Season 2 is a pretty good season. It is solid almost all the way through, but a few not-so-hot episodes just fill the season up to 13 episodes. Still a good season, but I'm sure better ones are on the way.
