Re: Power Rangers

Well, I've just recently, belatedly discovered that my cable service includes free on-demand channels offering recent TV programming, and that's enabled me to catch up on the two Samurai episodes I've missed: "Sticks and Stones," which I started watching but gave up on after the teaser due to the bad acting, and "A Fish Out of Water," which I just missed for some reason. And I'm glad I watched them, because they're both pretty good. The monsters in both are pretty silly, and the acting is still lame, but there was some pretty good character stuff in both, some nice insights into the Rangers, their background, their secrets, etc. The person who plays Emily is not a good actress, but I'm actually starting to warm to her a bit now; she managed to be very sympathetic and somewhat sweet in "Sticks and Stones" despite having kind of a whiny voice. And Bulk and Spike managed to be not quite useless in "Sticks" too, actually making an attempt to go after the monster (barely) and being spectators for the climactic battle. For once they felt like part of the story rather than something totally unrelated.

My problem with "Sticks and Stones," though, is that the story revolved around a "bully" monster who physically hurt people by hurling insults at them, turning their emotional pain into physical pain or some such thing, and the Rangers voiced the episode's message that trash-talking and putting people down isn't cool; but then later on we had the usual scene of the Rangers fighting the "Moogers" and the monster and trash-talking them quite aggressively. Kinda mixed messages there.

Re: Power Rangers

I thought "A fish out of water" was okay

I'm still surprised Deker has Juuzo's trait of finding the ultimate warrior.

I like Sentai and appreciate Power Ranger's but even I think they're literally taking Shinkenger word for word/character trait for character trait.

It wasn't this bad during Time Force and Wildforce. Cole wasn't a veterinarian
and Jen's parent's weren't killed by a monster.

Maybe Saban was able to mask the similarities better or maybe it's because i've seen Shinkenger already.

Re: Power Rangers

Since my cable provider's recent changes have moved Nicktoons to a tier of channels I already have, I was able to catch tonight's rerun of last week's "Forest for the Trees," and it was fairly good too. This show is turning out much better than I initially thought. So if they're just translating Shinkenger note-for-note, I can't really complain. There's some decent character development here and I'm curious to learn more. And Power Rangers has survived having weak actors before.

Re: Power Rangers

I wanted to address this whole Kimberly/Skull/Spike being a family thing: it stems from statements made by Amit Bhaumik, the writer of Forever Red, concerning something he wanted to do but wasn't able to do, which was to include an appearance/cameo by Kimberly in that episode as Skull's wife; with Spike having been confirmed to be Skull's son, people have decided to take Amit's original intent re: Skull and Kimberly and retroactively applied it to make Kimberly Spike's mother.

It's a nice little 'fanwanky' anecdote, but only if you can find a way to make it work given what we know about Spike (he's about 15, according to Felix Ryan), Skull, and Kimberly and the PR timeline as far as MMPR S3, Lost Galaxy, and Wild Force are concerned with regards to the most logical time period for PRS to be set in (which, as per established PR precedent, is the present day).

Re: Power Rangers

way the fought was pure samurai . This series just gets better . NOW the guy who
just wants a pure fight with the red ranger I am not sure how to spell his name so I am not going to try . any way is he a villian or is he going to be one of those characters who are redemable types. you gotta wonder how tommy feels about

Re: Power Rangers

There's some speculation/questions out there as to whether or not, as per PR, Deker will be revealed to be a brainwashed or somehow otherwise corrupted Cole (former Red Wild Force Ranger), given that both characters are/were played by the same actor (Ricardo Medina Jr.). All we really know for sure about him at this point, though, are that he's obsessed with fighting the Red Ranger and has some sort of past with the rest of the Nighloks, one that involves him having enough respect for Xandred to ask for permission to target the Red Ranger and that simultaneously involves Octoroo distrusting him for some reason.

They've already cast the Gold Samurai/Shinken Gold. He's suppose to be a Jim Carrey rubber face guy.

So he's basically going to be Genta

It's unlikely Power Ranger's Samurai will veer from what Shinkenger did and make Dekker the gold samurai





Also this weeks Gokaiger will be doing the Gaoranger(WildForce) tribute episode with the original GaoRed actor making an appearance

Maybe since Saban has been out of the game for a while, they're going for a literal adaption, as a quick and easy way to stall for time, before doing something more original with Goseiger.

Particularly if Goseiger proves harder to adapt, since Gosei angels would seem to be a less "down-to-earth" theme than Samurai.

Re: Power Rangers

I think Goseiger's theme might be easier to adapt into anything.

The footage could be a problem since the Gosei cards text is everywhere

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTBkhrlYXa8

It might require original cards and some clever editing.

The cockpit for GoseiGreat will probably be ditched

Re: Power Rangers

Jonathan Tzachor is a 'Sentai' nut, which is why PR as a franchise went to the 'one-and-done' season/character/theme format, and why PRS has thus far been a direct - or nearly direct- translation of Shurikenger. I personally don't have any problems with that philosophy, even though there are others who do.
