Re: Power Rangers

I enjoyed the original MMPR, with Rita Repulsa, and this looks like it will also be cool in the same regard. The YouTube clips look good, but I personally would want to watch it in Japanese with English subtitles... IMO, stuff like this always sounds better in Japanese.

Re: Power Rangers

Trippy, you really ought to check out RPM like I mentioned; it's definitely the best of the 'Disney-era' PR seasons, and even managed to knock Ninja Storm out of the top spot on my list of favorite PR season EVER (NS itself had beaten out stuff like PRiS, PRTF, PRLG, and MMPR S3).

Agent Richard07, JF is one of those seasons that gets maligned by a large portion of the PR fandom, although I personally liked it; it wasn't as good, IMO, as any of the seasons that cracked the top 6 in my list of favorite seasons, but it also wasn't as bad as a lot of people claim.

Another season that gets unfairly maligned, IMO, and which gets a 'watch' recommendation from me is Power Rangers Wild Force.

I just assumed you meant that there was an episode where they were frozen.
Nope, full-blown ice show. Like Disney On Ice...but Power Rangers. At the end they fought a giant inflatable Lord Zedd! It was awesome.
I saw a stage show where they fought an inflatable Lord Zedd, but it wasn't on ice.

Hmm. Maybe it wasn't on ice. It may have been at the United Center, where the Blackhawks play, so maybe that's why I'm thinking ice. Either way, it kicked ass.

Re: Power Rangers

That's probably what I saw, although Chicago isn't listed among the tour cities. Again, I was 9, so I don't remember all the details (my memory prior to age 16 pretty much sucks).

You can download the entire season subbed at TVNIHON.com

I dropped Power Ranger's completely in 2004 to switch over to "Super Sentai"

It may have some WTH moments like this episode

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjEpsGWSrZI

Being turned into inanimate objects and the blue ranger becomes one of those peeing statues

but it's got lots of epic moments and the music is so much better.

I'll wait until I see some episodes before I get excited, Saban has not only produced good stuff, but also a lot of crap in the 9 years he owned the franchise before, I don't believe the "Oh my God, Saban is so awesome!!!" stuff. I'm cautiously optimistic that the show will be good, but that's it.
At the very least, I'm hoping that, under Saban, the old series might start seeing some decent DVD releases. Disney never really seemed sure what to do with the property, the same way they diddled around with not doing proper DVDs for the 1990s X-Men cartoon.

Personally, I'd be really interested in some season sets for Zeo, In Space, some of the latter portions of MMPR, and the latter half of Turbo (mostly for Hillary Shepherd Turner as Divatox. "Viva la Diva!").

You know, as sick as it sounds, I'd love to see a reboot of the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
Well, it already was a reboot of Zyuranger.

And of all the PR incarnations, MMPR had the shallowest, lamest storytelling and the most effective and charismatic cast. So I don't see any value in redoing the premise of those seasons with a different cast. It would be preserving the weak part without the strong part.
Although, if they could figure out a way to bring back Lord Zedd, that might be cool. I've also got soft spots for Rita Repulsa & Goldar.

Re: Power Rangers

^Yeah, I just love those villains! When they went away and a new team of Rangers showed up, I just couldn't care. It was a totally different show.

Re: Power Rangers

Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd, Goldar, and even Ivan Ooze were some of the most kickass villains ever. Even Squatt, Baboo, and Finster were fun bumbling idiots. I always loved the Rito Revolto/Goldar team ups.

Re: Power Rangers

If you guys liked Ivan Ooze and Lord Zedd, you should definitely check out Power Rangers Ninja Storm, because Lothor, that season's main villain, is the in-continuity equivalent to Ooze, mixed with the ruthlessness and cunning of early S2 Zedd.

What Disney did was essentially babysitting the franchise till they could get their hands on Marvel and it's extensive library of heroes.

Re: Power Rangers

David Yost the first blue ranger of the MMPR series did an interview for No Pink Spandex. He tells them why he left.

Apparently people on set kept on calling him a Fword and kept asking the actors if he was gay or not.

Which brings me to this. Various Power Ranger alumni with the NOH8 Campaign

http://rangerboard.com/showthread.php?t=128329

Jackie Marchand; Writer/Producer (MMPRS3-RPM)
Alan Palmer; Corcus (MMAR [COLOR=Black]Black[/COLOR] Aquitar Ranger)
Michael Maize; In Space's Psycho Black
Vernon Wells; Time Force's Ransik
David de Lautour; RJ Finn, Jungle Fury [COLOR=Purple]Violet/Wolf[/COLOR] Ranger
Philip Jeanmarie; Max Cooper, Wild Force [COLOR=blue]Blue[/COLOR] Ranger








From the top

Erin Cahill; Jen Scotts, Time Force [COLOR=Magenta]Pink[/COLOR] Ranger

Patricia Ja Lee; Cassie Chan, [COLOR=Magenta]Pink[/COLOR] Space/Turbo Ranger

David Yost; Billy Cranston (MMPR [COLOR=Blue]Blue[/COLOR] Ranger)



Also the Yost interview hits TMZ

Re: Power Rangers

The Blue Ranger was gay?

I for one am not shocked.

Re: Power Rangers

That's sad to hear, that the show's producers were engaged in that kind of prejudiced behavior against one of their own cast members. It makes their racial and gender inclusiveness on the show seem kind of hypocritical.

But it's good to know that Jackie Marchand isn't a part of that, and good to see so many Rangers and fellow series alumni engaged in a real-life fight for a good cause.
