    I'm not talking about innovation vs. formula. It's just that Power Rangers embodies a rather pure philosophy of good vs. evil with the Rangers as the archetypes of good. There's this youthful part of me that just has a visceral negative reaction to the idea of Power Rangers (or their Sentai equivalents) being criminals.

    Something about the pirate ranger uniforms seems... unusually silly to me. :p Maybe because they decided to emulate 18th century sailing uniforms? :lol:

    Team photos. What's interesting is that the some of the suits have added skirts because the Gokaiger girls will use those forms

    Tiger ranger was originally male in Zyuranger

    In MMPR it was a girl.

    So now Gokaiger has added a proper skirt.

    GoYellow- Male in Sentai

    There are at least a handful of modified suits.

    I don't know how Saban is going to adapt Gokaiger for Power Rangers, given that there are something like 15 Super Sentai teams with no Rangerverse counterparts. But then, given that PR is now two years behind SS, maybe they could just skip over Gokaiger and move on to the next one? Or maybe they'd do what MMPR did with Dairanger and Kakuranger, making minimal use of their Sentai-team footage and mainly combining original material with a limited use of kaiju/Megazord footage.

    The fine line between continuity and fanwank.
    The amount of footage they have previously not used for a given season should allow them to take out the teams that weren't previously adapted without a serious detriment to their ability to make 40 eps.

    Even so, it will not be the easiest thing to adapt. I don't think they would actually meet the previous teams as the Gokaigers will... more like just channel past powers. The real problem for Saban would come if they start mixing and maxing unadapted teams/villains with adapted teams/villains. I could see Saban pulling a MMPR Season 2 and make a *ton* of new footage.

    But will the past teams be appearing separately like that, or intermixed like in the publicity photos? In the latter case, it would be harder to weed them out.

    Well, they could go the "Alien Rangers" route -- identify some of the hitherto-unseen Sentai costumes as belonging to Ranger teams from other planets, or perhaps other times.

    Don't forget the suits that lost skirts because they're now male. BlueDolphin, BlueSwallow, HurricaneBlue and MagiBlue.

    I hope we see more gender swapped suits down the line (male pink ranger ftw :bolian:), the team photos don't include all possible forms, because we've already seen female versions of MagiRed and GekiRed.


    There's NO WAY Saban will skip Gokaiger (if the show isn't cancelled again), that guy wants Power Rangers to be a hit again and you think he will pass on the chance to include MMPR and other old teams in new episodes?
    The "no PR counterpart" teams are not a problem at all, it's actually a good thing, just give the mentor a line about "past, future and alternate dimension teams" and you're free to throw every "new" suit at the audience without further explanation. It would make the season even bigger in scope than just using previous seasons powers.

    If they decide to skip a sentai at all, it would probably be Goseiger, because if the rumors are true and Samurai airs for two seasons, a new sentai won't be adapted until halfway through 2012 with an airdate in 2013. By that point both Goseiger and Gokaiger are finished and I just can't see Saban picking Goseiger for PR's 20th anniversary, if he can get "Everyone's back!" anniversary footage.

    I agree, if all goes according to plan the Gokaiger footage will be used for Power Ranger's 20th anniversary footage.

    I don't know how much will be kept. Judging by small footage of Power Ranger's samurai the footage percentage looks to be

    25% Japanese

    75% American/New Zealand

    Heck they gave the samurai's a mega mode and original cockpit.

    But that's not really a big investment, they needed one set and a few new costumes. They could easilly shoot cockpit footage for 5 episodes in a single day just with the second unit.

    It's nice that they made changes, but it's probably the cheapest way to give the fans PR exclusive stuff in every episode. They're still able to use almost all sentai fight footage everytime they want to save a few bucks. A pretty smart move by the production team.

    [LEFT]I'm not sure if this would interest anyone, but a while back, I decided to try and 'streamline' the early seasons of PR (MMPR S1 through SPD) in order to give many of them a more cohesive and coherent overall story arc, creating a series of episode guides which I wrote down in a Word document. I recently went back and revised several of these guides, and thought I'd share them here in case anyone wants to use them in doing a 'rewatch' of the show:[/LEFT]

    Most of them are much, much better. The original had a good cast, but atrocious writing. From Power Rangers Turbo onward, the storytelling got a lot richer and more sophisticated, though the casts weren't nearly as good as the original group. There are some real standout seasons, with Time Force and RPM being the smartest and best.

    This is only for the current VS movie of Goseiger VS Shinkenger.

    The upcoming team, Gokaiger will only be a team of red for the VS. In their series, they'll use the powers of past rangers according to their color(and then some)

    when a female Gokaiger morphs into another ranger, like MagiRed, a skirt is added.

    I'd also add Power Rangers in Space, Power Rangers Lost Galalxy, and Power Rangers Ninja Storm to that list of reccommendations.

    I liked Ninja Storm.

    I dragged myself through Dino Thunder's season.

    SPD/Mystic Force/Operation Overdrive/Jungle Fury-- From what little I saw or could tolerate to watch they looked terrible. Overdrive's OP theme was utter crap.

    I guess you could say I got a little jaded opinion because I went and watched all the Japanese versions and they all looked and sounded superior.

    RPM- I actually got through a few episodes. Liked the Go-Onger nod.
