Re: Power Rangers

Sort of off-topic, but I was surprised to see PR creator Haim Saban having a discussion with President Obama when I was flipping through channels. They are speaking at the annual Saban Forum, which is organized by the Saban Center for Middle East Policy, which is apparently named after Haim Saban himself.

The Saban Center for Middle East Policy is a center for research within the Brookings Institution focused on the United States' involvement in the Middle East. It was founded in May 2002 and according to its website, “The Saban Center conducts original research and develops innovative programs to promote a better understanding of the policy choices facing American decision makers in the Middle East.”
I had no idea he was so involved in this area. Interesting.

Re: Power Rangers

^ Interesting stuff. He seems like a big media mogul but I never hear about him in the media.

In other news, I've been watching Once Upon a Time and I was wondering who the actress playing Tinkerbell was. Then I finally looked her up yesterday and saw that it was Rose McIver from Power Rangers RPM.

Re: Power Rangers

I just finished rewatching Once a Ranger as part of an Operation Overdrive rewatch, and it's actually better than my initial impression of it had it being; it's not quite as good as Reinforcements from the Future, To the Tenth Power/The Power of Pink, and Thunder Storm (one of the few things I like about Dino Thunder), but it's still a solid team-up and a much better way to celebrate a PR anniversary than Forever Red, which just plain sucked.

I know a lot of fans have a problem with most of the Overdrive Rangers walking out on Hartford, but, honestly, I probably would've done the same thing.

Speaking of Overdrive, I've been guilty of 'group think' with regards to its quality and have had to revise my judgment of it. Like many other seasons (Mystic Force, Wild Force, Samurai, Ninja Storm), it's much better than people think it is and, and, qualitatively, is on par with Samurai, Zeo, Lightspeed Rescue, Turbo, etc. (which is to say 'Average'). It's not an Excellent season, but it's not a Poor season either.

Re: Power Rangers

Good grief, that's unwieldy. Even by Megazord standards.

Re: Power Rangers

Better than the toy, but it still makes me think of a pan flute for some reason.

Likewise, the suits aren't impressing me - there's just so little character to them. And I know the chest icon is supposed to echo a rail map, it looks like someone sneezed on their outfits around the numbers.

Still, I've always had a weak spot for vehicular sentai, so this may yet grow on me...

Re: Power Rangers

I like that megazord. It reminds me of Robotech's SDF-1. What I like is that it's different from the previous megazords. For years they've lacked imagination and you couldn't tell one from the other. I also like the train motif. I'm tired of cars and animals. I wonder what the English version will be called.

The suits are good. The story and characters are going to be shit.

Looks like boys and girls will be able to identify with the red ranger.

The railroad crossing sword is a nice touch but the zord(?) is a bit clunky. Don't think I could stomach PR these days but it's amazing it's still around twenty years later, I suppose the sentai source makes it pretty low-cost.
