Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

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?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

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.

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.

PM me if you're bored!

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.
