    So happy about Strike Back. Have heard of it here and there, Rhona’s interview on Craig Ferguson reminded me so i DL’ed them all and watched them…HOLY CRAP. Insanely good show. The guns/shooting/movement/etc is so perfect i love it. Most realistic in how it protrays those things of any TV show iv ever seen.

    awesome for tmnt. the pilot was really strong, much better than i thought it would be from the ads, as a long time turtles fan i cant wait to watch more

  9. Dan says:

    Really glad that Strike Back is back for another season. Would be very grateful if we could get more Strike Back news, maybe TVline’s thoughts once the season is over?

    NTSF:SD:SUV:: is the one I was [most] glad to see mentioned here. This isn’t Applebees – you can’t just renew all the shows you want!

  11. Mikael says:

    That’s great for TMNT, but I just can’t get past the animation. It looks so cheap! I know it’s a kids show, but technically so is The Legend of Korra, and that show’s animation is incredible.

    • Alan says:

      i was a bit worried about the animation style too but i gave it a chance because there is no point in hating something if you dont, it really works. the traditional animation backgrounds really make the cgi characters stand out and they look really fluid with their movements. also the occasional chibi moments are just that, occasional, and they really help sell the humour. if you gave it a chance you would see that it all really ties together
