Turns out the President set the whole thing up as a publicity stunt. Very rude.

@  Paladin : (13 August 2020 - 08:02 PM)

listen; i'm sure there were very fine ninjas on both sides.

The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:08 PM)

At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

Yet, an even more accurate description would be "five pro-environmental, charity-obsessed goodie-goods". Makes the comparisons Tommy makes between his old MMPR team and his new team in Dino Thunder all the more amusing. icon-fire.gif


What did he say? It's been a while, and I've forgotten.

--LBD "Nytetrayn"
Something like, "What is it with kids these days?"

While the MMPR season 1 teens he hung out with were, as I said, unrealistic straight arrows who lived and breathed charity work, the Dino Thunder teens were more believable teens who did realistic teenage things like play sports, play video games, listen to/play music, date the opposite gender, draw, and belong to different cliques and categories and such.

Like, compare Billy to Ethan. Billy spoke in constant techno-babble and acted like a super genius scientist while being a high school student. Ethan, however, was a game player and knew enough about computers to be able to hack them and such, but he was nowhere near the level of unrealistic intellect as Billy was and still felt like a believable computer nerd. It's kinda like comparing Steve Urkel to Carlton Banks.

Fitting, as he originally auditioned for Jason.

Fortunately, he was allowed to toned down the geekiness and leave off the glasses for season 2 onward.

Well, his complaint was legitimate. He was saying that as an actor, it was disheartening that he was portraying a character who couldn't communicate and had to have everything he said translated by another character. The glasses came off after the movie.

Yep. Even worse is how he said was treated during Zeo that prompted him to walk off the set.

Arise dead topic!

Well, episode 1 of Megaforce was... not too bad.

Puns were far and few, so that alone already makes it a huge step up from the pun-happy Samurai.

Theme song was pretty cool and, again, better than Samurai's by its being a bit more diverse and unique instead of just being the classic "Go Go Power Rangers" with a verse or two changed. It reminded me of Zeo's theme with how it took the base song and modified it to bigger extent.

The characters have good potential and, in typical PR tradition, look too old for High School. icon-waspy.gif

As for the story itself... it really REALLY walked a thin line being a homage to "Day of the Dumpster" and flat out ripping it off. Gosei's voice, Emma's hair joke, Gosei's lead up to the "Teenagers" line, Noah's initial reaction to Tensou, Gosei giving personal descriptions of each teen and which power they'd each get, A juice bar owner named "Ernie"... I'm surprised they didn't pull out a new Bulk and Skull duo with the rate they were going. icon-primal.gif Look, I'm all for nostalgia, but if wanted to watch "Day of the Dumpster", I'd just go watch "Day of the Dumpster". A little more subtlety in the homages wouldn't have hurt in the slightest, and really would have been an improvement, imo. I wanted to judge this episode based on its own merits alone, not by how many components it could swipe from MMPR instead of trying to be a bit more unique in its own regard.

Aside from the above homages going a bit too far, I was also disappointed by the name of the enemy footsoldiers. Is that honestly the best name they could come up with? They're practically daring the viewers to make a "hock a loogie" joke, if they themselves don't do it first. Sure, it sounds as silly as "Putty" does, but they were made of clay and the times were different back then. Does this mean that the new enemies are now made of phlegm?

During the "Summon Battle Gear" moments, all I could think of was Kamen Rider Ryuki/Dragon Knight with the various Card Vents and such. And that fact that Gosei's face is on their morphers and they shove cards into slots that resemble his mouth gives off some very mixed messages about the so-called Freaky Tiki icon-arcee.gif (no, not referring to the PRLG monster of the same name).

Also kinda found it a bit lame that they just recycled the Samurai theme song with the "Rangers Together, Samurai Forever" line muffled so as to be inaudible during the fight, instead of using the new Megaforce theme song instead.

I did find it a bit curious that it was the Time Force and Lightspeed Ranger statuettes that were focused on the most of them all, especially considering that Troy's vision focused more on the other ranger teams beside those two.

I liked the name of this team being the "Mega Rangers" (my Closed Captioning spelled it as "Megarangers"), and I loved the combined weapon being called the "Megaforce Blaster". Simple, straightforward, and a VERY good example of how to do a subtle homage (to the name of the "Power Blaster").

The new HQ looks... odd. The primitive stone walls of the hollowed out cave contrast with the rather high-tech look of the rest of it in a way that makes it look like it was hastily constructed. Like they just cut open the cave and stuffed Gosei and control panels in there with only a single fan to provide ventilation and little regard to interior decoration. And it looks rather... empty. Not exactly the most exciting-looking base the Rangers have had.

Gosei states that he and Tensou were put on Earth to awaken and protect it whenever it would come under threat from a new enemy... Where were they during all the previous enemy attacks? Bansheera's demons, Ransik's gang, the Orgs, Lothor, Mesagog, the Underworld forces, Flurious/Moltor/Kamdor/Miratrix/Fearcats, Dai Shi, and the Nighlok were all credible threats to the planet over the years after Zordon's demise. Then again, Zordon was a flawed mentor as well, so I guess it makes sense his successor would be as well. icon-waspy.gif

Also, this episode confirms it! Gosei is the first mentor to explicitly request teenagers who have "attitude" as part of their job description. Despite what the original MMPR opening stated, Zordon never asked for that. He specifically asked for "five overbearing and over-emotional humans," to which Alpha responded with, "No! Not that! Not teenagers!"

Regarding how they don't know about aliens or Power Rangers despite "Countdown to Destruction" and all, that particular invasion happened back in 1998, which was 15 years ago. Depending on how old these new Rangers are, they may have been too young to fully grasp the severity of that invasion and/or just forgot (as is a common ailment of humanity in the PR universe). But there's still no excuse for them not knowing about the Power Rangers unless each city keeps media coverage of their respective ranger teams confined to themselves or something. I mean, the Time Force and Wild Force ranger teams didn't know about each other until they met each other in their crossover team-up, despite the Time Force Rangers saving Silver Hills just one year before and the Wild Force Rangers being active in Turtle Cove while Wes and Eric were active members of the Silver Guardians.

Was kinda surprised they didn't manage to sneak in the Megazord despite their mentioning it. Was "Prelude to a Storm" way back in Ninja Storm the last single-episode season opener to not have any zords appear in battle at all?

All in all, not perfect, but a good start, nonetheless. I will keep watching and hope to enjoy it more.

I asked the same thing when he said that.

I also wonder if Tommy will be involved, Legends War aside (and I can't wait to see how they explain four of him). I mean, he's pushing to be included, and since Gosei is Zordon's understudy...

I was okay with the MMPR remix for Samurai, since it seemed like a strong way to say "we're back" after Saban took over the franchise again. And I can forgive it this year, being the big 20th anniversary full of homages and all. But for the next series, I seriously hope we get a new theme. I don't want this to be like Transformers, where ll they did for the better part of a decade was remix the original theme over and over...

I also agree that they were playing dangerously with the references. By the time they got to Emma's line, it was just feeling contrived. I hope they ease up a bit on that stuff in the future.

Also, when Troy was saying "I can't lead, I'm new in town," I cut in as Gosei while watching and said "I know; I saw what happened with Tommy, and I'm not making the same mistake. We're cutting to the new kid from the get-go."

We're already discussing this in the Tokuthread though.

Ya we were because it was still close to the top of the board and really didn't care to dig through the boards to see if this one was still around. But ya way too homage heavy in the 1 st episode. Addin in a B&S duo would of made it way too similar. But the base is one of my dislikes so far. It's cool having all the Ranger Keys lined up but part of me wishes we could have something more like the Zeo Power Chamber. Something like having the different suits flashing in the alcoves in some sort of contant flux as if its a window into the Morphing Grid. And when the Rangers morph it would show them in it as the suit called for stabilized around them.

This topic's more specific to this series and can stay focused on it better without having to drift off into other Toku stuff.

Those weren't the Ranger Keys. They were little statuettes. They didn't have the little base attachments that all the Ranger Keys have.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

But this topic was about Kal's experience with the DVDs he got. the Tokuthread is about everything sentai and rangers in general. This place isn't bustling or anything, you don't need to segregate it.

It quickly grew out of Kal's DVD experience to just PR in general, as evidenced by this notice of that fact:

So... is PR discussion going to go here instead of the Toku thread now? (Which I'm in favor of, I think both topics can support their own threads.)


Not everyone wanting to discuss PR wants to also discuss other Toku in general. This topic keeps the focus on PR with ease and keeps it from getting cluttered with general Toku talk.
