^Oh, interesting. I just looked her up on Wikipedia. I guess that would explain what this big "If you only knew" secret was that Jayden was talking about here.

Just read about it too. Now I can finally catch up. I only started with Operation Overdrive.

I'm also looking to see what the next series will be called. I saw something about Power Rangers Angel Force, but that turned out to be fan fiction. Then I saw something about Mighty Morphin' Pirate Rangers and finally settled on Power Rangers Megaforce as the likely title.
Supposedly Saban want's to skip Goseiger and use Gokaiger. It would seem logical since pirates are more of a universal theme than Gosei Angels.

According to episode synopses, the episode "Fight Fire with Fire", which should be the third episode aired once the show comes back from hiatus in September.

Re: Power Rangers

DAMN repeat today. Is this going to be a two week break or what?

Also finished the rewatch of the entire series from mighty morphin to RPM, took me six months.

Now a question on vinjex when was it created and how many years is this after jungel fury?

We're now officially on a four-month hiatus; new episodes return in September.

Now a question on vinjex when was it created and how many years is this after jungel fury?
The exact year in which RPM took place wasn't ever specified, but the flashbacks to the Venjix outbreak showed a fairly modern 21st Century society, and the general rule of thumb for PR is that, unless otherwise specified, each season takes place in the year in which it aired. This means that RPM would've taken place in 2009.

Regarding JF and RPM and the timeframes of the two seasons, the question of how much time passes between them is relevant only if you ascribe to the idea that they actually occurred in the same dimension (due to the appearance of Jungle Karma Pizza in Corinth).

Interestingly enough, if the two seasons are set in the same dimension, one of the most significant events of RPM - the release of the Venjix virus - would've occurred either during or immediately following the events of Jungle Fury (depending on exactly how much time passed in-universe between the events of Welcome to the Jungle and Now the Final Fury).

RPM is an alternate universe, it's not in continuity with the other seasons. That was part of the Samurai team-up's plot.

It would have made sense if it was set in the future (maybe even a few hundred years) because we saw that in Time Force humanity seemed to live in big cities surrounded by wasteland, but the flashbacks in RPM were obviously on an early 21st century technology level so that's not believable. Putting RPM in another universe was the best choice.

There seems to be this perception out there that Clash of the Red Rangers making the events of RPM take place in an alternate dimension was some huge, earth-shaking change, but it wasn't, because those individuals who were involved with RPM - particularly the original showrunner, Eddie Guzelian, and long-time PR writer John Tellegen - made statements during the season's initial run indicating that it was meant to exist in its own, self-contained reality, so the only thing that Clash of the Red Rangers did was to explicitely confirm 'in-universe' what had already been in the minds of the PTB behind RPM.

There were certainly things about RPM's world that conformed to it being in the same continuity as the seasons that preceded it but in the far future (flashbacks aside), but there was nothing about it that explicitely mandated that it be.

Re: Power Rangers

It's not like Power Rangers has ever had a tight continuity. Lost Galaxy was supposed to be several years in the future, long enough for Earth to have invented interstellar drives, but then later seasons treated it as if it had taken place the same year it aired. Alternate or no, RPM was clearly presented as being sometime in the future. As far as I know, there was nothing in "Clash of the Red Rangers" that precluded the two from being in different times as well as different timelines -- especially since there was zero explanation given for how the universe transfer even worked.

Re: Power Rangers

^ I don't recall anything in RPM that explicitely indicates that it's meant to be set in the future other than the fact that Corinth is a domed city. Most of the Corinthian technology is analogous to what we have today, and the flashbacks - which, as noted, take place a year prior to the events of RPM proper - clearly conform to current tech.

There's nothing saying that the RPM dimension couldn't operate on a different 'time-scale' than the 'mainstream' PRU, but there's also, as far as I remember, nothing that explicitely says that it does.

Regarding the Lost Galaxy timeline/continuity issue, the fault there lies squarely with the writers of Trakeena's Revenge, which, as a narrative story, doesn't make a whole lot of sense and is what I would consider to be the weakest team-up episode of the franchise.

I know, but I don't really care about writer's intentions, backstories or explanations, that's nice trivia but if it's not on screen it doesn't count.
Up until Clash we didn't know if RPM was in an alternate universe or the future, the Samurai writers could have decided they're from the 23th century and that would have been it.

That's an incredibly limiting position to take, especially with regards to Power Rangers. By taking that position, you discount a number of things that are part of the fabric of the PRU's overall tapestry.
