Re: Saban re-acquires rights to 'Rangers'
I watched Power Rangers when they were first on up to probably the Turbo (Was that after Ninja?) years.
Ninja was the third season of MMPR. Then Zeo, and then
I watched the first two seasons off and on, mostly because it was so hilariously dumb.
I'll take everyone's word for it that Disney didn't seem to have the same level of care regarding the show that Saban did. I do think Disney's first two seasons — Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder — were a lot of fun, and managed to capture the spirit of the original show, while still being able to wink at those audience members who'd grown up with the original MMPR.
"They quickly settled on the slender island at the head of the bay, which they called 'Mannahatta', after an old Indian word thought by some to mean 'island of hills', and by others 'place of general inebriation'."
