Re: Power Rangers

I'm a little surprised about that - not that he was gay, but that he left the show because of it. I always thought that the producers and crew liked him, which is why he hung around so much longer after everyone else on the original cast was replaced at least once by that point (except Tommy).

On the flipside, I never really like the original MMPR series mostly because of the lame storytelling. Acting was okay, and the action was great IMO, even though it was glaringly obvious when they used the Japanese footage versus the new stuff they filmed themselves (the grain on the Japanese film was just too easy to pick out). Later seasons seemed to correct this.

My favorite seasons are usually the ones where the Ranger team of the year was actually part of an organization of some sort - it always seemed wierd to me that some Rangers looked and behaved more like soldiers than superheroes when their outfits and technology obviously looked government-issue more than mystical creatues. As such, I like the Time Force, SPD and RPM series quite a bit, and even Lightspeed to a certain extent. OTOH, I'm a fan of giant robots and transformation sequences from most anime, so even casually tuning in to the less serious seasons satisfied me when the monster fightin' started.

Also the male Yellow Ranger footage.

Re: Power Rangers

^That too but mostly the heavier film grain on the Japanese footage. Also, the Japanese costumes were usually shinier.

When I first saw the show way back when I was about 10, the thing that I thought was really cool was how the Zords would transform and link up to each other in different configurations. I was an especially big fan of Dragonzord - Fighting Mode.

And Tommy wasn't exactly a member of the original cast since he didn't show up until like episode 20.

Reminds me of what Mr. Kabapu's definition of a civil service job was on Excel Saga.

Re: Power Rangers

It really sucks that he left the show for the reasons that he did and in the way that he did, and really is a sad commentary on just how much prejudice - blatant or otherwise - still exists out there even though the world in general likes to think of prejudice as being non-existant or a non-issue.

I do have to give him kudos for being as candid as he was, and also have to give the No Pink Spandex guys - many of whom frequent the PR message board that I also frequent quite regularly - credit for asking him to give advice to people who might be struggling with some of the same issues that he went through and that led to his departure from the series.

Re: Power Rangers

Someone talked to Tony Oliver yesterday
TheVileOne wrote: View Post
I spoke with Tony Oliver today. He's serving as a production/story consultant for the new series. Here's what he had to say: -The cast would have some big surprises. He wouldn't say outright that there would be some familiar faces but the implication was there. -He said Japanese purists of the Japanese versions of the sentai shows will like this version. This American version will apparently stay very true to the Japanese original. I asked him to clarify this pointing out that Shinkenger is very Japanese in tone and style especially with the look of the rangers and the morphin process, he acknowledged that and said it would be faithful to the Japanese version. -Said he was honored and very happy to be called in to work on it -We talked about the Gold Ranger and what a fun, different, and weird character he is.
I'm thinking the morphin sequence might be a cut and paste job like Wildforce's since Saban is known as a penny pincher This new bit of info has brought up words like "laziness" to "if it ain't broke don't fix it"

So this season will indeed be totally Tzachor'd. Let the hating and *****ing begin.

As long as they don't just copy plots beat for beat, pull a Wild Force with the cast, or just translate episode scripts directly from the Japanese counterpart, I won't really mind. But if this is just another lazy ass Sentai rip by Tzachor, I'll just finish watching Shinkenger subs and ignore the new season.
Just a bit of information, people hated Wildforce because it was almost a direct copy of Gaoranger. TimeForce also relied heavily on Timeranger for ideas and that was considered a good season.

Re: Power Rangers

Normally, I don't have much of a care for Power Rangers. Just seemed to over the top, even for my taste. So I never kept up with the franchise.

Someone passed me some subbed episodes of original Super Sentai episodes from Japan...huh, I actually sort of like it. Still got a campy, silly feel to the show. But for some reason it works in a way that the US versions didn't.

Power Rangers Samurai
Tony Oliver says there is no final title yet.

Overdrive.92 from RangerCrew:

So I talked to Tony Oliver today about the new season, and apparently, Power Rangers Samurai may not be the title. Tony saw it on IMDB and then put it on his website, and we all know that the IMDB title was fan made. He also claims that the Rangers don't even have names yet and are currently being labeled in the scripts and writing as 'Blue' 'Green' and so on.

Re: Power Rangers

I don't like the title. It sounds incomplete. I would have preferred something like "Power Rangers: Samurai Strike".

Re: Power Rangers

It harkens back to the simpler titles of the past like Power Rangers Zeo and Power Rangers Turbo. And of the fifteen previous PR series titles, only six have subtitles more than three syllables long, if you bend the definition of "subtitle" enough to include Mighty Morphin'. (And five of those were four syllables long. The record is Operation Overdrive at seven syllables.)
