@  ShadowMan024 : (10 December 2016 - 05:39 PM)

Why am I bringing that up? Because it also probably echoes how Marvel feels about the DC cinematic universe.

@  Rycochet : (10 December 2016 - 06:00 AM)

I always find the subscriber numbers given by places like Facebook and Youtube highly dubious. He may have 50 million accounts subscribing to his videos, but how many of those actually watch, how many are unique people and not a 13 year old's 16 different youtube accounts and so on and so forth.

@  Rycochet : (09 December 2016 - 12:16 PM)

I doubt it's to help anyone but himself, by pointing out he can and will possibly totally delete his channel and getting a lot of buzz online for it, I'm sure he's hoping some other internet company or media dinosaur is going to throw money around to get him on board.

I think they need to bring back Justin as a 6th ranger. I think the fans really liked him, so he should be brought back and given special weapons and powers.

thoughts?

Ironically enough, I'm putting down a Power Rangers idea that involves a number of "returning" Rangers.

The idea is that in the wake of a lot of jive that winds up going down, the UN - or what's left of it - gathers together all the surviving rangers they can get ahold of in order to form an international ranger organization; those older rangers who aren't tasked with running the show are assigned to train all the different new teams that are being created, the idea being that the more functional teams there are the better the Earth will fare against another invasion.

The twist, however, is that the UN is betrayed from within and sold out by a series of moles who are loyal to the newest alien conqueror (one of the moles is actually the guy's son), leading to a massive battle that results in a 50%+ casualty rate for the international ranger organization; even a number of veterans go MIA (thus explaining why only a handful of actual actors / actresses are around for the regular series).

The day ended up being saved when a mysterious metallic-colored ranger "liberated" a batch of morphers and handed them off to a a raw recruit and some civilians; the aliens weren't aware of this extra set of rangers and so didn't account for them. The end result is that the new guys liberate the main academy while the metallic guy carves a path through the invasion force until they're forced to retreat.

The surviving older rangers are now placed in a position in which they are mission control and so must now take on the role that Zordon, Alpha, and all the others played all those years ago while another team of young guns & another mysterious sixth ranger go out to save the day. The older guys do get to save the day from time to time, but for the most part the series is all about everyone being thrust into roles they weren't ready for.
Lexicon: still up and running!

I'm not sure about that. The problems seemed to stem from one producer, who most likely hasn't been involved with the series for a while.

A friend and I once wrote a PR short story parody with characters based off ourselves and our siblings/friends. We all had ridiculous combination animal powers and the villains were Cornies (they looked like corn). It was overflowing with cheesiness and bad puns, if I remember correctly.

.....I totally need to find that story.

Is Power Rangers even still on the air?

I sort of wish the original cast could be gathered up for a sort of legacy show with the first and last groups.

Or, if we're really going crazy, lets get them ALL together. Like, every single Ranger ever. It would be gloriously epic.

New episodes start February 7th.

What happened is that ca. 2002, Fox was looking to unload the Family Channel (which it had bought just a few years earlier) and when Disney came calling they threw in Saban - who by that time had become the network's in-house studio - to sweeten the deal; this is why Disney has the rights to RiD instead of Hasbro.

Disney quickly relegated all of Fox' old re-runs to filler spots in order to pad out the lineup on ABC Family and Toon Disney, but they were left with the fact that Power Rangers Wild Force was still in production and the production company still had a contract with Japan that allowed them to adapt further seasons of Super Sentai.

The end result was a wildly unpredictable series of starts and stops in the history of the franchise. For example, while people loved Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder, I have yet to find a fan who will admit to enjoying Magic Force.

In the wake of RPM a dispute apparently broke out between the people on the show and the execs at Disney; Disney increasingly came to regard the show as disposable (some ABC affiliates didn't even broadcast it), and the production staff came to resent Disney's constant meddling. When Disney got the bright idea to give the original series the G2 treatment rather than spring for adapting the then-current Sentai series, Haim Saban finally said "hug this" and bought the rights to the franchise back.

He immediately began broadcasting the vintage episodes online at the rate of one per day, with the idea being to buy time while he began adapting the version of Sentai that Disney didn't want to do. Nickelodeon was more than happy to pay what Saban wanted for the broadcast rights, and so that's the show's new home for the time being.

Given that Thuy Trang is dead (she was killed in a car crash shortly before 9/11), Amy Jo Johnson wants nothing more to do with the series (she blames her comparatively long tenure on the show for her difficulties in finding "serious" work after she left), and David Yost is still bitter over how he was treated, that's not very likely.

IIRC, the only early cast members to actually come back and do work with the show outside of one-off specials are Jason David Frank (Tommy), Johnny Yong Bosch (Adam), Paul Schrier (Bulk), and Jason Narvy (Skull).

Wow, I knew the series had a sort of long and sordid history, but that's crazy! And awesome, in a way. Sort of the TV equivalent of taking ones ball and going to play at a different friends house. So is that why there's this influx of classic figures then? I have to confess, I lost track of the series after the third iteration (with the Ninja Zords?) and without cable and not watching TV much... at all... the sudden reappearance of the classic Megazord and the original team on the toy shelves caught me totally off guard.

Yeah, I knew one of them had passed away and got the feeling that a reunion wasn't likely. I've recently caught up with a lot of Power Rangers history thanks to Linkara's excellent History of the Power Rangers series, so I've seen some bits of the reunion shows, and they looked pretty cool. Still, a man can dream, can't he? icon-hotrod.gif

Next Sentai show is basically Super Sentai Decade. Where the new group of Rangers(for wont of a better word) goes and tries to find the powers of the previous Super Sentai teams. All of them.

Ironbite-your idea for a legacy might happen.

Ever since I learned that both Super Sentai and Kamen Rider are made by Toei, I've always wanted to see a Super Sentai series that was vaguely Kamen Rider themed. For example, all the zords would be giant two-wheeled vehicles that look liked futuristic motorcycles.

Well you're not getting that. Instead you're getting a pirate themed series where the rangers have to go around collecting the powers of the previous sentai teams. So it's kinda like Kamen Rider Decade in that respect.
