Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Turtles in Time

"Turtles in Time" reimagines another familiar face for fans of previous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles incarnations on both television and in comics when Time Master Apprentice Renet (Ashley Johnson) arrives from the future to enlist the Turtles' help in dealing with the evil Savanti Romero (Graham McTavish). As with previous version of the character, Renet is presented as an impulsive teenage fangirl of the Turtles whose help she will need to stop the rogue Time Master from rewriting time itself.

The episode's medieval setting allows for the return of the Turtles' ridiculous Dungeons & Dragons costumes. Renet's introduction also gives Michelangelo (Greg Cipes) a love interest (well, sort of) and delivers a battle against medieval skeleton warriors (too bad they didn't bring a boomstick!). After defeating Romero the Turtles' journey home is sidetracked meaning this won't be the only episode in which they will have to adapt to a different time. Given their next stop, although I think it's unlikely, I do wish they could find a way to running into a certain rabbit ronin before making it back home.
