So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

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.

Original version. (The deal with Shout didn't include the G2 version)

There's also a MMPR S1-3 + MMARset and a Zeo-Lost Galazy set that are presumabelt going to be regular retail releases, as well as the MMPR-Lost Galaxy set offered through Time-Life.

And the box sets are the only way to get the bonus discs, which have the various TV specials, direct-to-video specials, and some new things, including a feature on the stunt team.
Oh, and the original Galazy Rangers promo.

1. Those are the same thing. There is no "MMPR-Lost Galaxy set". The Time Life set is the two boxed sets of MMPR/AR and Zeo-LG being sold together in one order.
2. They are not coming to regular retail. They can only be purchased through Time Life as a pair, or as two individual box sets from Shout! Factory's website. Only the individual season volumes set will be sold at regular retail.

Psyco Rangers are from In Space, and they show up again in Lost Galaxy. And Lost Galaxy was the end of the continuous narrative thing.

The whole series is available for streaming on Netflix as well.

Really "In Space" was the end of the narritive. Lost Galaxy was tied to it by pretty much a few things like Alpha, Bulk, the Psychos and team up with the In Space, Karone replacing the Pink ranger, and the Astro Megaship. Ok quite a few things, but it was the first season where it wasn't the same group of rangers transitioning to a new suit and zords. Technically due to the team ups almost every year the narrative could run until the last but epic team up in Wild Force and the Forever Red episode. Ninja Storm broke it with no team up at all but since it was the first complete Disney era show its not surprising. But They made up for it by bringing Tommy back in Dino Thunder the next year, the cool anniversary episode, and bringing back the Ninja Storm rangers.


Now I'm a bit sad that Samurai only gets a team up with the RPM red ranger. Truthfully with Megaforce's synopsis so far I'm almost thinking their going to pull a fast one on us and revive Zordon and Alpha through the Goseiger counterparts. Having Zordon back would account partially for the supposed Super Megaforce being able to use the Gokaiger Ranger copy ability.

Anyways back to the subject....... icon-fire.gif

I see LG as sort of an epilogue to the Zordon Era, it's a new story with new characters but ties up several loose ends and serves as sort of a "what now?" in setting tone for the post Zordon era with how teams would be. Most shows continue to build on the ideas in some form or another, even if they can sometimes just be seen as throw away details for long term fans. RPM is the only one so far that seems to be definatly non-canon since its hard to work it in to the normal timeline.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was something I outgrew kind of quickly as a kid (I was done with it by the beginning of season 3, I think), but I've never held anything against it. In fact, I really respect the massive mythology the show his built over the years; it's a surprisingly complex continuity.

When Disney XD used to rerun the older seasons, I recalled still enjoying the old MMPR episodes regardless of cheesiness and age. And even the later stuff really impressed me. What was the season with the Psycho Rangers? Those episodes were pretty great. And I was finally able to catch the finale where they killed off Zordon and thinking, "Holy crap".


I dunno if I'd be willing to invest in the major sets that collect everything (it's my understanding that the serialized narrative ended after Lost Galaxy and the show started doing the major storyline rebranding beinginng with Lightspeed Rescue?), but I might be willing to grab MMPR Season One since that holds the most nostalgia with me.

I still remember being blown away by the Green Ranger 5-parter when I was little...


It's my understanding that Fox was waffling on whether or not to cancel the series after "Power Rangers In Space"; supposedly, Turbo's ratings were so abysmal that the network didn't see much future for the franchise.

Thus, Saban was given permission to end the series on as epic a tone as possible: Adam came back for a cameo, Bulk & Skull got their "hero" moment, Zordon sacrificed himself for the good of the galaxy, and all the villains up to that point were either destroyed or had their magic abilities permanently neutralized. Two of the Megazords were left intact so that the characters could be said to have been going around to clean up loose ends, thereby allowing for a possible continuation.

Thing is, the epic nature of "In Space" actually pulled back fans (like myself) who had abandoned the series during Zeo and Turbo. This gave new life to the franchise, leading to Lost Galaxy - Lightspeed Rescue.

I had given up on the show after the first few episodes, I was 12 or 13 at the time and a bit too old for it. When the promos for the Green Ranger series started to air I couldn't help but watch it (which led to me watching it regularly until Tommy started wearing red). The Green Ranger was just so awesome to me (bad mutha green ranger with a dragon zord kicking everyone's butt, getting the hot Pink Ranger, wearing cool armor, and the evil guy turned good - it was too cool to be true). You can imagine how upset I was when he lost his powers the first time (especially because he had saved everyone all the time and no one could help him the one time he needed help).
