Ever since Nickelodeon rebooted the TMNT series late last year I’ve been watching and enjoying the show, as it perfectly blends the fun from the 80’s series with just enough seriousness and action of the 2003 series. Now they’re bringing viewers seven more episodes of their awesome reboot of the TMNT franchise in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Enter Shredder DVD. With even more kick-butt action and comedic fun this around, this release is sure to please fans and newcomers alike.

Hot on the heels of the Rise of the Turtles DVD, Enter Shredder brings seven more episodes that feature our heroes’ legendary nemesis as he enters the picture at long last and cause all sorts of trouble for the turtle teens. Of course there’s other adventures for the guys as well, such as dealing with a rampaging scientist that’s been mutated with monkey DNA in “Monkey Brains”, or fighting off Shredder’s lackey Xever in “Never Say Xever”.

And speaking of Shredder, after hovering around in the background of the show, he finally confronts the turtles in the episode “The Gauntlet”, which is hands-down one of the best episodes of the series so far. Mainly because he beats the living shell out of them and makes the teens reflect on how far they’ve come and how much further they’ll have to go in order to beat him. Four more action packed adventures follow on the disc, though I found out that it’s missing an episode that featured the Rat King called “I, Monster” that comes between the last two on the DVD. Fans are sure to notice and will be left scratching their heads of why it was omitted from this release.

As with the previous DVD, everything looks and sounds great here, though I’m hoping we’ll get a full season Blu-ray and DVD release soon. The disc is a little light on special features this time around, as there’s only one storyboard comparison for the episode”New Girl in Town”. There’s also the two-part digital comic “Tales From The Lair” that’s sure to keep viewers entertained, despite some some of the navigation icons getting in the way of some of the panels.

While it’s missing an episode and light on extras, Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Enter Shredder DVD is still a fantastic follow-up to the previous release Rise of the Turtles DVD. With plenty of excellent action and comedic fun of the brothers, fans and those newcomers to the series will have a shell of a time watching this DVD again and again.
