Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Season 2 Volume 1: Mutagen Mayhem DVD is set for UK release on 31st March.
The PG-rated DVD has a running time of around 2 hours and features the first 5 episodes from the second season of Nickelodeon’s CGI-animated hit series:
1 - The Mutation Situation
2 - Follow the Leader
3 - Invasion of the Squirrelanoids
4 - Mutagen Man Unleashed
5 - Mikey Gets Shellacne
Plus 2 special features - ‘Ninjas in New York’ and a Channel 6 Special Report entitled ‘Creatures of the Night’.
Voiced by Sean Astin (Lord Of The Rings), Jason Biggs (American Pie) and Greg Cipes (The Middle) among others, it's sees the 4 turtles back fighting crime and Shredder and protecting themselves and humankind from all manner of nasties.
I used to watch TMNT with my brother when he was little, and then again with my 20 year old 15 years ago, so the format is familiar although the stories feel fresh and obviously the CGI format is far more up-to-date. I think it works really well actually and it was very watchable. My 2 boys certainly enjoyed it - they've watched the entire DVD 3 or 4 times already.
It's got the usual jokey aspect and is very light-hearted, and it's formulaic, but that's really what you'd expect and works very well for a show aimed mainly at children. What does disturb me though, there's far less pizza than there used to be....
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Season 2 Volume 1: Mutagen Mayhem is due for release on 31st March from Paramount Home Media Distribution. It has an RRP of £9.99.
