Everything Has Its Time and Place

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a Turtles’ fan and for almost every stage in my life, there has been a series running for me to enjoy. Like most people born in the 80s, I was raised on the 1987 cartoon. As a preteen, I rushed home after school to watch The Next Mutation’s attempt at a live-action show (still a guilty pleasure for sure). I was overjoyed when our thirst was quenched by the underrated 2003 Fox cartoon. For five years, I religiously watched every episode of the 2012 Nickelodeon series. And while I have my reservations about some of the designs for the new 2018 Nick series, I’m very hopeful to see new life breathed into the franchise.
