So I ran into this questionnaire yesterday, originally posted by TMNT2003‘s Tortuga Me Gusta Tumblr, and I figured I’d answer it. Questions are in blockquotes, answers in between.
Your favorite season and why.
Season 4: The culmination of three seasons of growth. The characters and relationships have been established, the writers have broken free of the more limiting S&P restrictions, and we’re allowed to see what they really can do.
Your LEAST favorite season and why.
Season 7: Yes, it was clear that it was rushed as hell, and that they had a budget that made shoestrings seem like an extravagant expenditure. Still, there were lots of interesting things that could be have been done, and the series attempted like one of them.
List three things the series could’ve improved upon.
- More diversity, particularly when it comes to gender and sexuality.
- Better ways of dealing with the restrictions imposed by S&P, particularly in the first two seasons.
- Better production values in general, particularly in seasons 4-7.
If you could only change one thing about the series, what would it be?
One change? Make April a Woman of Color, in line with her depiction for most of the first volume of Mirage.
