Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

DINNER

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:35 AM)

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday @Pinkcolliebot

@  Pinkcolliebot : (07 June 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Today's My Birthday!!!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 June 2019 - 03:16 AM)

Think how many copies of Optimus Prime's brain could fit on that.

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 June 2019 - 11:21 PM)

If only Johnny Mnemonic had had $25, he could've saved himself a big headache.

So all the praise got me reading the Boom stuff, which is indeed really great even though I have never been a PR fan - saw some of the original stuff when the first season or two aired, but was never really into it. Given how much fun the books are, I figured I'd dip into the show, just pick a random season or two depending on what caught my attention in Shattered Grid. One of the first things that seemed interesting was Corinth, this post-apocalyptic Last City thing - I did not really understand that there were elements of Power Rangers that extended beyond Kids In School. RPM was cemented as my starting point when I discovered that it featured a Neighbours alumna.

 

So I watched the first episode and liked it a lot. It was, on several levels, obviously About What I Expected A Power Rangers Show to be - cheap, cheesy, Not A Classy BBC Drama, etc. But there was plenty of stuff that worked.

 

I really don't need another fandom spilling junk onto my shelves, but there is definitely a set of these in my future.

I really don't need another fandom spilling junk onto my shelves, but there is definitely a set of these in my future.

I'm not sure if starting with RPM was such a good idea, unless you're only interested in getting involved with a single season, as RPM, while quite good, is a rather exceptional season, being the most different a season of Power Rangers has ever been, being the least representative of the show overall.

 

That said, if you're interested in possibly checking out any other seasons of the show, I'd recommend any of the following for a newcomer looking to see what the show is like at its best:

  • Season 7: Power Rangers Lost Galaxy - the first season to begin with an almost wholly new cast and which saw a lot of dramatic twists and turns in its story that were meant to up the show's age demographic from little kids to big kids and preteens, as well as an (eventually) engaging cast of villains and a few ties to the previous seasons meant to establish continuity connections.
  • Season 9: Power Rangers Time Force - arguably the best season Saban ever produced, involving a cast of mostly complex-written characters, some of the best acting of the Saban era, and heavier subjects such as the question of whether we have free will or if our future destinies are set in stone, the ethics of vengeance vs. forgiveness, and the evils of discrimination and prejudice.
  • Season 12: Power Rangers Dino Thunder - the second season to be filmed in New Zealand (the first ten were filmed in California) and IMHO the only season to come the closest to how teenagers in high school really behave, with the mentor being a returning veteran ranger from the original first three seasons (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), and a level of writing that seemed like it was trying to make the story and characters really develop well.
  • Season 13: Power Rangers SPD - set in the future, this season saw the rangers as officers of a futuristic law enforcement training academy and featured a rather unique villain who played the long game with diversionary tactics and strategies uncommon to the typical main villain of a Power Rangers season, as well as well written characters, a rockin' music score akin those of the early seasons, and some (at times) layered storytelling.
  • Season 16: Power Rangers Jungle Fury - the penultimate season of the Disney Era, this one is considered to be a more underrated season as, while not as great as most of the others on this list, it was pretty solidly and competently done overall despite complications that arose from a writer's strike that went on at the time, and featured a heavier focus on martial arts, good character growth, an interesting cast of villains, and a serialized storyline.

Others that most would recommend that I omitted from this list would be the fan favorite Season 6 (Power Rangers In Space) and the also underrated Season 8 (Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue). The reasons I left these two out is because, while both are considered good seasons, In Space was the season that was originally meant to end the show and featured a heavily amount of continuity connections and continuations of things from the preceding seasons that might confuse new viewers unfamiliar with the first five seasons and the significance that both In Space and its ambitions have to them... And Lightspeed Rescue is considered to be the weakest season of its era (what's known as the Post-Zordon Era), having been book-ended between two very strong seasons that its level of quality just doesn't match up to when set against them. It's not a bad season at all, it's just not as strong as it could have been, being a season themed around the rangers being a government-based team of first responders fighting to protect not the whole world but just one city from a band of kinda boring villains, and newer viewers may find its more grounded-in-reality tone a bit less intriguing than the more fantastical tone of the galaxy-spanning Lost Galaxy and the much heavier tone of the destiny-defying Time Force. Still, both In Space and Lightspeed Rescue are among the better seasons of the show (which include all of the other listed above, and maybe others depending on opinions), both featuring their own doses of drama, tension, twists, and cleverness. But I wouldn't recommend them to a first timer.

As a counterpoint, I actually would suggest Lightspeed Rescue to a newcomer since, when you think about shows being above or below the bar, it sorta feels like it is the bar. It feels like the example of the highs and lows of the franchise. I'll note that I'm biased. I actively enjoyed the emergency responder theme and some of the more realistic grounding. Instead of ignoring the blown up builds, they're directly sent to get people out. That said, I wouldn't suggest Lightspeed Rescue to Maruten since he noted the cheese from RPM and that Time Force and SPD are way better picks overall if someone is only watching one or two seasons.

Well you've never really gonna get that far from the cheese in PR, its kinda like watching Doctor Who. You go in knowing what you're getting a show that is gonna be weird and cheesy, and where its production quality can be hit or miss; but you still end up enjoying the ride anyway as long as you're not expecting high art, super serious plots and just kinda want to have fun.
