    I must have been the only kid not to have been obsessed with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

    I always thought it was shit.

    I don't know how anyone can't hate Time Force. Which is pretty much is the best season, since Space.

    I think you mean can:/

    Time Force was the last good Power Rangers arc before the franchise turned to shit in Wild Force. Still can't hold a candle to the series that preceded it.

    The most enjoyable for me was Ninja Storm and Lost Galaxy.

    I really only watched it while Zedd was cool. It never appealed to me outside of that guy.

I've since gotten rid of all my zords, but I found the Falcon Zord (from the third season) at a Good Will a few months ago and I just had to buy it for nostalgias sake.
    That was a special edition Megazord. I ended up getting one for Buzz Lightyear when Toy Story first came out. I played with it a lot and threw it in the air to simulate the movie's flying, and the head broke off...but I ended up having even more fun with the broken toy because it looked like a robot. :X

    The original Megazord series is notoriously rare because people played with them so much that despite high durability they usually ended up destroyed. Mint ones are ridiculously expensive, the best we can hope is Bandai makes the new editions with the same resin as the first series so they won't get torn apart from simply falling off a shelf.

    The extended is actually a remix of the original theme, first used during the second season when Lord Zedd was introduced. I prefer the original, but the extended is OK too.

    The show is essentially nostalgia but I sort of want to see the original sentai that based it on. The first couple seasons were silly, stopped watching with Zeo, but did come back and thought Time Force was well done and probably the best I've seen of the series. (probably the closest the American series will ever get to a sentai...then again, it was before Saban folded and became part of Disney)
    Y'know, Negima WAS awesome...
    For the first 18 volumes.

    Always found it funny how Carranger saves its franchise while, Turbo almost kills it.

    But when you've gotta series that in its home country, is considered to be for children, then brought over to the States and GUTTED and watered down to the extent that it makes 4Kids One Piece look like fucking Ninja Scroll, it's gotta be Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

    Now, for a kid, the show is amazing. Changing robots are retarded cool despite what plots surround them. When you've got changing robots based on dinosaurs you might as well expect prepubescent males across the globe to suddenly blow a premature load.

    But there's simply no defending the 'dramatic' portion of the show. It was and is crap. Crap that I absolutely adored as a kid and have fond memories of, but I would never, ever want to revist that realm as an adult. It'd be like someone kicking me in the groin saying, "See, this is why you were an outcast until high school."

    Think I'll go cry now.
    Get a grip, Greg.

    I gave up/outgrew the show once its started changing series names every year, I guess near the end of the Zedd era. (After he and Rita got married and she was revealed to have a skeleton brother or something is about when I stopped.)

    Of course due to it being aired andlessly I caught snippets or random episdoes over the years like I'm sure everyone else did. (I also suffered through the godawful live action Ninja Turtles series.) Near the end, when they did Dinosaur robots again, I think Fox family was running marathons every weekend or something, and I saw that Tommy, now age 35 or something, had actually returned to the show, and was incredibly amused by the fact that they had fun with it. "Aren't you a little old too be apower ranger?" and jokes about his many costume changes.

    So I ended up watching a few episodes of that season, including the 500th episode clip show that recapped the ENTIRE franchise in 22 minutes... they also had an episode where they watched a JAPANESE episode of the show, with its full crazy wackiness intact and the MST3ked it, which was quite a bit of fun.

    EDIT: Wikipedia says that season was called "Dino Thunder". And apparently the actor played Tommy was Green, White, Red, and Black rangers over 7 different seasons. Well... its a career.

    Speaking of Jason David Frank (Tommy), he entering the MMA World is actually really is a matial artist.

    A lot of former Power Rangers are doing a lot of stuff now.

    Amy Jo (Kimberly) gots her current tv show, Flashpoint which got renewed for a third season and recently give birth to her first child.

    Johnny Young Bosch is doing ton of VA work for animation and games.

    Jason Narvy (Skull) recently got a PHD in theather.

    So its going to be interesting rewatching their really early works before what they become now.

    Bosch particularly suprised me. I remember when I first heard about him when Trigun was going to air on Adult Swim. I saw him on the cast list as the main character, heard he used to be on Power Rangers, and was all like "ugh... a Power Ranger?! Geez, this is gonna suck.."

    The Trigun aired. Then I punched myself in the face for daring to doubt this fantabulous actor. From hamming it up in Power Rangers to being one of the best voice actors in the business. Ain't that some shit?!

    Bosch isn't good.

    He was a forgettable Power Ranger at best, I know most people have to be reminded that "the Black Ranger" wasn't always played by a black man.

    He's a terrible voice actor, though. He has no skill, no enunciation, emotion, and no training. What he does have is an army of MMPR-gone-weeaboo fans to promote him endlessly online.

    I don't like Crispin Freeman, but I can at least give him credit for making consistent efforts at becoming more professional, including the pursuit of more education. This is why he's able to break into real commercials and earned that cameo in Howl, and why he doesn't need to star in every anime that comes out of Southern California.

    JYB does nothing of the sort and instead revels in his faux celebrity status, which is why he gets all the low paying roles from BZE. His popularity ensures that he gets a lot of those roles, which displaces upcoming actors and pushes away those who bothered to get training.

    Ditto on that. I mean, Adam (the Power Ranger) never really stood out for me on the show, he always just seemed rather plain. Needless to say I was shocked to learn that Bosch was the one playing all these awesome anime characters (Vash, Ichigo, Lelouch, etc.)

    I stopped reading when you said "no emotion." Then I started laughing.

    Yes, how wooden and without emotion. What next, Terek, is the Cowboy Bebop dub overrated? Is Steven Blum a hack? Is the NY voice pool the best of the four? Was the OP 4Kids dub masterful? C'mon, Terek, make with the zany!
