Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Earth’s Last Stand
review by Bobby Blakey
I have loved the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series from the moment it debuted in 2012 and has gotten better with every episode. Now into its fourth season fans have had plenty of time to get in on the fun, but if for some reason you have missed out you can bring some home with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Earth’s Last Stand.
In this collection, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles find themselves gathering the last bits of the Black Hole Generator to return to NYC and save the planet from the Triceratons. Along with old friends and new foes, the Turtles go on a wild ride to protect the city they know and love before it's changed forever! One of the things I love about this show is that it has constantly evolved, but never like it did into season four. You knew from the beginning that things were going to be different thanks to a first time change with the opening credits, which still maintains to be one of the best theme songs to date. This whole season took place in space adding a new dimension quite literally to the series and characters. They make varying versions of these toys all the time, but rarely do they successfully work them into the series, but here they did just that. No matter what the reason, it felt as though the stories came first before product sells and that is the way it should be.
As this season progressed they got them back to Earth and then once again evolved everyone in the show while bringing it back to the fight in the city we all love seeing. After the fun of the Triceratons, space adventures and a mysterious Sol Star fragment it is hard to imagine what else they could possibly be up to with this series, but I for one cannot wait to find out. This collection features seven episodes from the fourth season wrapping up the space adventure and kicking off the action with a new arc with even more beautiful animation and great action.
