Ryan and Eric played my fourth e-mail to the show! It is read and the follow up discussion occurs between the 25:15 to 34:30 minute marks.
In the middle of the discussion, I had the thought that this is what my e-mails should be. An item that actually sparks a lively discussion.
I felt pretty embarrassed that I had forgotten that in the Archie Adventures run, that we got plenty of Future Don and Raph together, something I had completely over looked.
Just so I can write about it here, I asked what Raphael and Donatello talk about when they are on a mission together. As those two’s dynamic doesn’t really get much attention.
There are only six different ways to break out a duo with the Ninja Turtles.
The Rarely Seen
Raphael and Donatello
Leonardo and Michelangelo
The Classic – Sharps v Blunts
Leonardo and Raphael
Donatello and Michelangelo
The Video Games – Long v Short
Leonardo and Donatello
Raphael and Michelangelo
I’m not really sure what you call that third grouping of characters, but usually in video games, me and a buddy will pick Leonardo and Donatello for their sweet longer weapons.
After they moved onto the third e-mail of the episode, I did have the thought about trios of the team but I already knew it was going to be a long e-mail. I did record a version of it, to be a voicemail, but it ended up being a full minute and some seconds, and that felt too long. Though they have had aired long ones before, and never once commented on how we should keep them to a certain length. I guess when you have two hour long episodes, extra minutes are not a bad thing. Especially if it truly adds to show content.
We’re in the middle of season two of the Nick cartoon, and I want to say that say that Raph and Don have been paired up once, maybe twice. We’re at the episode where Karai was turned into a snake. I swear, we must have missed the first half of that season as none of those episodes looked familiar.
Hulu finally updated season four, but I want to earn that season so we’re slowly working our way through season two. Walker Dennis is currently addicted to Secret Life of Pets – which isn’t all that bad of a film. Louis C.K. doesn’t even try to change his voice, so he sounds the exact same as Brendan’s dad from Home Movies. But, if you are going to hire Louis C.K., you hire him for that specific voice he has.
We’re also very slow in working our way through Out of the Shadows, which doesn’t seem like a bad movie. It is silly but so far, unoffensive, my man.
