To understand the cultural impact of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is to go back to the late '80s/early '90s when the property exploded and took the world by storm. TV, toys, the big screen, all of it. And "Turtle Power" does a pretty good job doing just that. This covers all of it, even going back to the very beginning with the underground comic (two kids in their living room started All of this). It was really cool to see the original voice cast of the '87 series back together (nice camaraderie), and it was new to me what sorts of trials were faced on the set of the 1990 film. Given the release date, I'd expected them to cover everything (one and all reboots) up until 2014 and shill for the new Michael Bay movie. Nope, not the case, and I think the movie turned out the better for it. There's plenty here devoted to the original cartoon, Playmates toy line and the New Line movies. Basically, the Turtles explosion.
And they bagged some great interview subjects: Brian Henson, Kevin Clash, the extremely attractive Judith Hoag and even James Avery (R.I.P.). Overall, good stuff. Well put-together and informative.
