The subject matter for this episode is something near and dear to my heart. My memories of Fall of the Foot Clan lie deeply rooted in my nostalgia. As I played the game for the show, all of the memories came roaring back. Being in the Appalachian Mountains, fighting car sickness, having to jump from vehicle to vehicle and bring down the maniacal Baxter Stockman. Lazy afternoons spent not doing chores, getting super hyped for the bonus game where you pit your turtle against Krang to see who is left with that lone throwing star. That’s the amazing thing about going back in your adulthood and re-living the things that fascinated you as a child. The schema is already in your head. You just have to take a second to open the door and all of those excellent memories come flowing through. Well enough about me. Prepare yourself to warp back to a day when gas was well under a dollar and Nickelodeon truly was all you needed…
