I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

I think part of what made Green With Evil was the length. It wasn't a simple episode of a new brainwashed Ranger being won over in 24 minutes, it was a 2 and a half hour epic where the Rangers were put through hell. That's actually one of my most positive memories of the show, the writers LOVED doing events where you wondered how the team were going to bounce back.

However, as a whole....before the Nick deal, Jetix UK used MMPR episodes to fill the dead of night slots (do any kids actually watch these networks at that time of night?) and as I watched them in the first time for over a decade, I have to admit I found them pretty boring and cheesey. I certainly saw the cheese as a kid but never to this extent. The eyes of youth are a funny thing and part of why it annoys me when you see folks say 'Kids shows now suck! They're missing out on great stuff like *insert whatever happened to be on during their childhood*!"
That said, I think it helped that MMPR had a knowing self awareness at times. Some of the later seasons lost that and took themselves a bit too seriously to be any fun.

Not normally.

Instead, that time of night is usually reserved for adults and older teens who are still awake.

Ever since Nickelodeon arrived on the scene in the 1980s, the executives in charge of kids' programming networks have been faced with the question of what to do past a certain hour of the evening, as the prime viewing audience is most likely going to be asleep at that point.

For Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and The Hub, the answer was simple: gradually shift the programming from kid-friendly to adult-friendly. Nick and The Hub use vintage sitcoms and dramas, while CN goes to Adult Swim.

Nicktoons and Nickelodeon Kids just air re-runs of earlier programming.

The rest, like JETIX and Boomerang, either air "retro" shows or select genres that would appeal to older fans anyway.

When I was a little kid my brother lived in Japan and on one of his visits he brought me a toy of the Power Ranger zords combined with the Dragonzord. Flash forward a year or two later after Power Rangers debut and that showed up in an episode. Was a very weird "Hey, wait a minute..." moment (didn't know they harvested a Japanese show for the series when I was little, of course.)

I echo the sentiments of In Space, or at least I very much enjoyed it after years of not watching Power Rangers and then catching it on a random Saturday. Had interesting characters, including the villains, had an epic scale and actual story arc. Well, at least, it seemed to get really good after the crossover with the live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that FOX had for a while... that episode was icon-kicker.gif .

I downloaded and starting watching the In Space episodes last year to see how they held up. They were pretty terrible so I stopped. But, then again, I hadn't made it to/past the TMNT crossover ep. So maybe I should've hung in there just a little longer.

Thing is, I live in the UK where such blocks don't exist. Most of the kids networks went 24 hours or close years back but they don't really have any programming for it, so the result is you get 11pm-6am full of lesser shows CN has rights to on a limited run of episodes night after night or Nick showing SpongeBob and iCarly at gone midnight. CN at least shows some of their 90s Cartoon Cartoons between 9-11pm but, again, limited choice of episodes in endless loop. Basically there's no reason for these networks to keep such a schedule if they don't have anything to air, unlike the American networks who get use out of those hours. Is iCarly hip with the stoner crowd?

Some networks just do re-runs as filler. In some instances it's a repeat of the night's prime-time lineup, while in other instances it's just whatever's handy.

Yep. Being a White Ranger red herring (and fanservice) were really the only reasons they brought in Richie. Though there were hints of a possible relationship between him and Trini, nothing came out of it beyond some mild flirting.

None of this is on the DVD since there are no special features.. but I've been doing some research on the actors and I was surprised to learn that David Yost walked off the set and quit the show during Zeo due to the gay bashing and harassment he had received from producers, writers and such from the show.

And also that Thuy Trang died in a car accident in 2001.

Actually, Trang received an "in memorium" after an episode of Lightspeed Rescue.

...which really, really creeped me out after-the-fact.


The episode in question had the team's robot feeling frustrated because he couldn't see the future; it knew what was going on in the present, and could still contact Time Force HQ, but due to the actions of the rangers and the villains the immediate future had become a cloud he couldn't see into.

The moral of the episode was "live for today, because you don't know what's coming in the future."

...a moral that was driven home by the robot actually seeing into the future.

...and promptly flipping out because the future entailed "buildings being destroyed and a city being on fire."

Cue the "in memorium".

Why did it freak me out?

Episode debut: 8 September 2001.

I think we all know what happened three days later: buildings being destroyed, a city being on fire, and memorials all over the television.

Time Force.

And yeah, the show did a quick shift in themes after 9/11. Ransik was a bit less sympathetic, with his terrorist tendencies played down--and later semi-handwaved as partially being the influence of Orgs, the enemies of the Wild Force team. Shots of buildings being destroyed and similar things were edited out as well.

When does it get better in season 1? Back when the 2010 reversion aired, I watched all of that, and then continued watching the first season online from where the reversion left off. And, even with such multi-parters as "Green With Evil", "Island of Illusion", "The Green Candle", "Doomsday", and "Return of an Old Friend", it never got better. Out of ALL of those season 1 episodes I watched, only ONE episode ever really reached any levels of "awesome", and that was "Return of an Old Friend Part I", with Part II going back down to the same level of "okay" as the rest of the series.

I didn't get to continue watching into season 2 due to my life becoming busier at the time, but I do own the "Best of Power Rangers" DVD that contains the "White Light" two-parter, and watching that showed that that two-parter was FAR less cringeworthy than the content of season 1.

The problem is that the show is just SO dull. I mean, I understand these shows have formulas to them, but this is taking that to the extreme. The random stock footage from JuuRangers (or whatever) doesn't help. Here's the run down

- Some nonsensical event or situation occurs at the local juice bard/gym
- Rita mocks them for their stupid event and decides this is the perfect time to take over the world
- bullies Finster into making 'the perfect monster' for whatever non-situation exists
- monster gets sent to a random dump or quarry in some stock footage.
- idiot robot freaks out and tells them to go there
- stock footage power rangers defeat the monster, it grows big, they call the zords and defeat it again
- Rita grates on about how her plans have been ruined
- The finish whatever nonsense they were doing at the juice bar

That's not even taking into account the Bulk and Skull shenanigans... this is EVERY EPISODE. There's literally no point to anything anyone does.

How this show ever got popular is beyond me.


On the other hand, someone pointed me towards the JuuRangers show and that's actually not too terrible. But I've only watched a few episodes of that.

It's Zyuranger, Kal

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
