Yeah yeah, giant spiders. Look up the Great Emu War of the 1920s for instances of Australia trying to defeat it's wildlife and failing miserably.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 November 2017 - 03:41 AM)

Australia is still fighting their war on Giant Spiders.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 01:58 AM)

The queue is pretty long, and I don't think Australia is going anywhere any time soon.

Trying to stay awake at work or school is a lot like using your controller when it's on low battery

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

If you're used to doing it with tabs, that makes sense. It doesn't feel weird for me.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Also, it just feels weird if switching between webpages uses the same actions as switching between programs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I switch between different things on the browser and click on various plugins and stuff far more often than switching from program to program.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:19 AM)

Yeah I'm mostly just venting from frustration rather than trying to convince anyone, though @NotVeryNightly I will point out that the windows for the other programs I'm running are at the bottom of the screen as well.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:09 AM)

Tabs are on the top, near the address bar, browser tools, plugins and whatnot so the cursor will be there frequently anyway. Switching windows would require going down the screen.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 10:03 AM)

I mean, you do you. No bigs. You've just got a fairly unique stance that surprised me.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I haven't seen words on the bottom bar of the screen since XP.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:13 AM)

All of which is put on the point that I don't care if people want to use tabs, I just want the option to not have them present for me on my browser.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:12 AM)

@Shrug- A quick glance at the bottom of the screen shows me what is open and where. Load times are basically so trivial that the load indicator on a tab is something I didn't notice until you mentioned it. The "which instance is playing noise" is a fair point but has basically only really been approaching meaningful for me maybe twice in all the time tabs have existed.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:07 AM)

@NotveryKnightly- I have never encountered a situation where that is true, especially given that tabs are on the other side of the screen to the other things I'm switching through.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:06 AM)

@ Nevermore- The windows at the bottom have the names of the websites on them, presuming you don't collapse them.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:08 AM)

Geez, this is reminding me of the awful pre-tab days.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

I can look at the tab to see if it hasn't finished loading yet. Now you can see which tab is playing sound, so no need to hunt through windows to find a video ad that started playing.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And a quick glance lets me know whats open and where. No clicking multiple windows hunting for something. No waiting for some window preview to pop up (which wasn't available when tabs first started.)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Switching between tabs is way quicker than between windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:09 AM)

It's like having a clear structore with sub-directores, instead of just having all files on your computer stored in one giant directory.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:08 AM)

This way, I can switch between windows and then select the tab, instead of always trying to remember which window is for which website.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:07 AM)

I find one browser window with multiple tabs a lot easier to handle alongside other windows than multiple browser windows alongside other windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

I find multiple tabs a lot more comfortable than multiple windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

erm... no?

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 03:26 AM)

On mobile devices and whatever I understand why tabs would be a thing, but on a full desktop browser it's just- "Hey, here's a thing that's kind of like opening a new window, but objectively worse in every practical way"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM)

@  Shrug : (16 November 2017 - 01:11 PM)

tabs being wretched bs is definitely an opinion I've never seen before

@  RC85747 : (16 November 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Vivaldi lets you hide the tab bar

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 07:45 AM)

Yeah but that gets rid of everything else as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 November 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Hit F11 Pennpenn

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:15 AM)

I get that people like tabs. Fine. Whatever. I just detest the fact that most current browsers don't let you have the option of just hiding the bar away so I don't have to even think about the wretched bullshit things.

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

Does anyone know of a browser that doesn't force tabs on you? Just... any sodding browser that doesn't have tabs.

"Someone" being me. No mystery to it, I used to draw a lot during class when I was in high school. I came up with lesbian ninjas, which were a specialized team of assassins with amazing hair and impeccable style. I scanned some of my drawings and mentioned them a few times on the ezboard 17 years ago, and people seemed to like the idea.

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.
Lexicon: still up and running!

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).
