Yeah, but everyone loves that version of Raph. It sets him apart from Mikey, Since in the show Raph was real quippy which feels like Mikey’s thing. other then changing the character HP bars around (was always Leo, Mikey, Donne and Raph) This is an okay change since it’s something Raph has been for a long time.
And he has his Sai. BIG PLUS.
And yeah, I feel the April bit although short was probably to avoid too much backlash from Twitter. Although, they’re probbly still complaining.
Although, Foot soldiers where never threatening in a small numbers, They’re just cheap to produce, most of the reasons she got kidnapped as because she being a reporter
snuck into the enemy hideout and gets caught by the bigger bad of the episodes be it Bebop, Rocksteady, Shredder, maybe General Cragg…. Slash. You get the point.
At least it’s not as ham-fisted as the last show Nick canned neigh a first season where she’s Sue’d quite a lot I remember a scene she beat up an entire squad of the Foot single handedly so it shows the Foot nerfed. (Even the pervious one she was with psychic powers outta nowhere and she’s the McGuffin the Crang need)
Which come to think of it. That is probably why they’re going back to to the old school Turtles, Let’s be honest; rise of kinda Ninja turtles didn’t sell, this will. This will sell. HARD
