          Yeah well, with Live Action teen shows I guess you cant expect these people to be around forever (this you learn from watching the cast change every new season of Saved By the Bell: The New Class) or maybe they just have very shorter contracts

            Hmm I could never get into that show. I remember kids used to run around saying "It's morphin time!"

              I was always offended that it was such a blatant rip-of of Voltron.

                I also only liked the first season and the early part of the second one. But they overused Bully and Skull too much!

                      I didn't watch PR when I was younger. I was in 7th grade when it first started, and thoguht it was a bit lame. My younger cousins, though, watched it and they were fanatics, but grew bored of it when Power Rangers in Space started up.

                      I started to watch Power Rangers after I was forced to watch that first movie. I actually liked it (okay, so I thought Adam was a cutie!! lol) and stopped watching it after Turbo.

                      It's so weird how that show is still going on, and how it's still insanely popular in Japan (sentai is so the thing over there, they even made Live-action Sailor Moon 'sentai-style';) and how it's been around for sooooooo long over there. What we got back in the early 90s was pretty much the old (and I do mean old) version that Japan had aired a good while back.

                      You can tell by the footage, which was Japanese and which was American (Yellow Ranger in fighting scenes, since for the original, the yellow ranger's character was always a guy), or either the footage for the fights (some) just looked older in general.

                      OH, so that's what it was from. My friend always randomly says that, and I just look at him like he's crazy or purposely ignore him. lol

                        For the original, they were all Japanese. :-P

                        That aside, I never thought about it much, but what about the later eps? Rocky was the Black Ranger, or the yellow ranger, who had two black actresses, and then Ashley for Turbo, etc. With the exception of the first original set, the yellow ranger has not always been "Asian" nor has the Black ranger always been "Black".

                            I watched the whole series up until the first movie. The movie was pretty cool but I just stopped watching after it, I'm not really sure why. :?

                            8) The original cast was the best, and the Green/White ranger rocked!

                            My favorite episode that I can remember was the episode where the green ranger was killed and returned as the white ranger. I think I liked the change of pace "Whoa the Power Rangers didn't win?... COOL!!!". :P

                              Tommy, the Green Ranger, wasn't killed. He just lost his power. Overall, I thought he was all right, but hands down, the greatest Power Ranger would have to be Jason, who started out in red and appropriately returned as the Gold Ranger.

                              I'm always a little surprised whenever I hear that some incarnation of this show is still around, producing new episodes (on Fox Family). I mean, it was pretty good during the early days -- thanks to good storytelling, nice action, and likable, interesting characters -- but then, following a series of recasts (it happens, I know), revisions, and some generally lame ideas and villains, the whole thing just gradually declined in quality.

                              Last time I tried watching, there was some scenario with the latest team being allied with two human leaders (a female scientist-type and a by-the-book guy who I believe was the father of one Ranger).

                              It's not really the show I knew and loved. The only thing recognizable about it now is the overall concept of two organized groups fighting with the fate of the world at stake every now and then while teenagers in costumes represent one side and stupid-looking-yet-dangerous beings represent the other. The Power Rangers arrive, the "putties" or whatever they're using these days get the crap kicked out of them, the stupid-looking baddie gets the upper hand, the ones who sent it look on and gloat about how they're finally going to win this time, and then -- possibly with some help from their comrades back at the base -- the Power Rangers come up with something and save the day once again, while whatever personal issue one of them was going through gets neatly wrapped up afterwards. Rinse, repeat.

                              Throughout the years, I don't really understand how this formula could've endured long enough to keep the show on the air for this amount of time, but I guess it's sort of like the great Sesame Street in this regard: as one audience matures and moves on, a new one arrives to take its place.

                              Still, if it's not done by now, I doubt there's much life left in the Power Rangers franchise. Again, it was indeed pretty good at the start.

                                *Points to what I said earlier in this topic* In Japan, it's extremely popular even after all these years. As long as they keep going with it (Japan), the US will have more of a reason to keep it going and try to gather a newer/younger audience each time.

                                    :oops: Sorry, I meant that his Zord (the first Dragon Zord) was killed. I still think it was kinda cool to see the Rangers lose for the first time though.

                                      A few years ago, Austin St. John hosted a Power Rangers history show, and during this feature they showed the never-before aired first episode where there WAS no Trini, but instead a hispanic girl who was fought as well as Tommy. She wasn't lame and awkward out of costume, like Kimberly was...she was awesome. The episode also showed punches and kicks to the face...a Saban no-no. I wish I'd recorded it. Oh yeah, and Zordon was called "Zartron". lol

                                          Wasn't it just sent to the sea never to return? Yeah, both the Green Ranger and his Zord rocked!
