Ah come on, Power Ranger wasn’t that bad =o)
Yeah, it was… A bunch of friends and I recently watched a bunch of pilots to shows we used to think were awesome when we were kids, and those really are the first lines. They were so hammy, we couldn’t stop laughing…
WHAT??? WHY DID IT GIVE ME A MY LITTLE PONY AVATAR???
Oh my God, there’s tears in my eyes. That’s hilarious.
You’re Sodomuffin! lol
Hey, it gave me this yellow-and-purple Taskmaster thing. Though I guess that actually counts as cool…
Ha, the ten minutes I devoted to setting up my constant avatar have now been proved “so worth it”. XD
The “yellow and purple Taskmaster thing” is Skeletor. Why don’t you know about Skeletor?
You’re lucky. I’ve got this red, florists’ delivery logo guy.
Except they aren’t. They’re present in the theme song, yes, but it more or less sums up the story, much like Transformers’ theme, except without lyrics. The ACTUAL first lines are uttered by astronauts on the moon.
“Hey, what’s that?”
“Looks like a space dumpster”
Say what you want about Power Rangers. The original theme song will get stuck in your head and eat your brain!
Wasserman knows how to write a catchy tune, that’s for certain.
GO GO POWER RANGERS!
You are correct about the theme song. It’s got way too many squeedelies to not be amazing.
I have the theme song on my phone and the beepy thing noise is my ring tone. It’s HORRIBLE but in an awesome way, I have a really old video and I can’t stand it, but I love it. And hey, I’m only 15
You have to put those horrible scripts in context: between fight scenes and commercial breaks, they have approximately 10 minutes in which to tell a story with 8-10 main characters (including Bulk, Skull, and one-shot catalyst characters) that makes sense to a grade-school audience. If the story involves something else that you can use stock footage for, like dirt bike racing or skiing, the scriptwriters have five minutes.
alpha: aye aye aye aye aye
This is by far Ethan’s least attractive moment to me. Gay dorks are wonderful. Gay dorks who hate powerrangers are insane. WHAT ABOUT THE COLORFUL SPANDEX!!! You are obligated to love the spandex!
(Not to mention that the yellow ranger in the stock footage is a boy with a crotch bulge. There’s something a little queer with that.)
I agree, though it’s more “how do you not enjoy robots that transform into larger robots”?
Then again, I don’t think I’ve seen an SP! strip about Voltron anywhere. Odd, that.
I’m sure some Spider-man fans who saw the opening of the Japanese live-action show didn’t go “Wow a giant robot”. It was more like “WTF”
I was watching the first episodes recently and loved them because they were incredibly cheezy. I couldn’t stop laughing at Rita and her zany antics.
Ha ha silly Willis there aren’t full Power Rangers season DVD’s…yet.
Oh yes there are. And they are all available on Netflix instant viewing.
Actually, SHOUT factory didn’t come out with them until last year. The DVD’s were very rare and YouTube was the only place that had Power Rangers until 2011. Trust me, I’ve ran the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Re-Airing 2010 fan page on Facebook since December 2009 and couldn’t find any DVD’s until last year.
How do I know this? I get the inside information e-mails. I also am friends with Blake Anthony Foster, Paul Schrier, Catherine Sutherland and talk with Jason David Frank on his fan page
Hehe, all shows seem to be based off that line. “Get me a bunch of teenagers with attitude” and don’t forget “and they have to come with a scientist uncle or something that can be sciency”
watch the stock footage carefully, the yellow ranger is a guy
Yes Yellow Ranger is a guy b/c in Super Sentai the only girl was the pink ranger, so when they brought it here they thought it would be better to have another girl and since she was Asian she should be the new yellow ranger just like the black guy had to be the black ranger.
I would LOVE to hear the writers say how that’s not racist.
If I remember correctly the official explanation was that nobody noticed what had been done until it was too late.
Anyone who doesn’t love Rita Repulsa’s line at the beginning of the intro theme has serious issues. That’s one of my favourite things to randomly shout.
As Ethan has already pointed out, the beginning of He-Man was just as awful, yet I had my mom tape it every day because my bus didn’t get home in time for me to catch the first half.
I didn’t like the series at the time because they try to replace Ninja Turtles popularity. I try to watch but I stop when Vash/Ichigo/Lulu/Izaya/Firion came around.
I see the Millennium Falcon in the Easter Basket.
The most commented on comic so far. It’s about power rangers. *sigh*
Dude, at least wait until the show actually starts before you decide you hate it!
More evidence Willis is a time-traveler- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers DVDs were a myth until Saban’s buying the property.
Even though I, like Ethan, was born a few years to early to be a Power Rangers fan (still watched it because my little brother was obsessed with it), if there was ONE thing I adored about that show it was Rita. Barbara Goodson’s performance was utterly hamtacular.
I remember playing Disgaea for the first time 10 years later and wondering why the hell Laharl sounded so familiar. Took an hour or two before it hit me that I was waiting for him to scream “I have a headache!”
Ethan go back . And watch it alllll
Ha, I just recently watched the first season again on Netflix and I couldn’t help but laugh at that line every time I heard it.
Nooooo you bastard! How would you feel if someone watched only 5 seconds of Transformers before deciding it was stupid and turning it off?
