(Ep. 134): Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Movie Commentary: Netflix Party Edition – April 2020

Cowabunga!

Remember when Mom would say, “Stop playing with those damn turtle action figures, get out of the house and go play outside!?”

Boy times have changed…

Since we cannot play outside we decided to get together with our fellow podcasters and listeners, our friends, and watch 1990s classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles online with the Netflix Party Extension.

So grab that facemask, wash those hands and join us during the quarantine.

Big thanks to Freddy and Greg from MISCAST for joining!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

In New York, mysterious radioactive ooze has mutated four sewer turtles into talking, upright-walking, crime-fighting ninjas. The intrepid heroes — Michelangelo (Robbie Rist), Donatello (Corey Feldman), Raphael (Josh Pais) and Leonardo (Brian Tochi) — are trained in the Ninjutsu arts by their rat sensei, Splinter. When a villainous rogue ninja, who is a former pupil of Splinter, arrives and spreads lawlessness throughout the city, it’s up to the plucky turtles to stop him.
