    No, that's stupid.
    The Batman show from the 60s was campy.
    Power Rangers was shitty.

    (Batman was kinda shitty, too).

    It really doesn't take alot to entertain an 8 year old.

    Colorful Costumes, Martial Arts, Giant Robots, and the occasional monster.

    These themes haven't really changed in the past 30 years. Because no matter how terrible they are, they work on little children.

    It's fine if 8-year-olds want to enjoy crap. I won't fault the 8-year-olds for that. It's what they do. It's when people my age start going on about it as if it's actually good that I start to get confused.
    I'll go now, because I hate when people shit in "HOORAY FOR [POP CULTURE ITEM]" threads.

    I don't think we're shitting in it, Dave. I think it's legitimate to wonder how many people in this thread are just too old to have ever liked this show. I think it's fair to say it was aimed for 8 year olds. I think I was like 12 or 13 myself.

    It's just one of those things, I imagine. You think about it and you remember what it was like to be 8, and it makes you feel good. Can't fault a person for that. We just happened to be too old for it.

    Some of the ones they made past the original story weren't that bad. One of the top PR series for me was S.P.D.. How can you fault a series where their whole BASE became a Megazord and one that actually brought up clouds of broken concrete whenever it walked?! It was THAT big.

    prspd-zd-mobilecommand.jpg

    It also had that Megazord I showed in the OP which could turn into an oversized gun. And their Red Ranger had a pair of pistols that could lock together and become a sawed-off shotgun. That weapon is one of those kind of concepts that make me wonder "Why the fuck didn't anyone try THIS before?!"

    SPD also had the cutest girls too. Including that cat-lady ...named Kat.

    Not to mention , SWAT Mode, and SWAT Megazord, decked in black with two handguns, it looked like a fucking grammaton cleric, AND He did Gunkata too. I'm so not joking either. Regular megazord mode just did a max payne dive a lot.

    Yeah, but I'm sure it's not fun to be bugged about it if you are one of those weird, silly people, and this thread is really meant for them.

    Yeah. The Shadow Ranger. For his intro, they threw 100 of the series' flunkies (robots this series) at him and actually had a counter in the corner of the screen going as he took them all out one by one.

    I have a blue ranger glove, and it has a button between the thumb and index finger

    when you press the button, it makes a SWISH sound

    it is awesome for dramatic, air-chopping

    this would have been better if you bought the costume, complete with skirt, and then painted it black

    also

    I SEE A PINK GLOVE AND I WANT TO PAINT IT BLAAAAACK

    Oh, shit, I remember that. I had the blue one at my dad's, and the red one at mom's. There were two gloves, and if you hit the backs together, it played something...can't remember what.

She and former actress/model Angela Rockwood-Nguyen, to whom Trang was to be a bridesmaid to later that year, were passengers in a car travelling on Interstate 5 between San Francisco and Los Angeles (they were returning from visiting Angela's planned maid of honor) when the driver (another of Angela's bridesmaids) of the vehicle she was riding in lost control. The car swerved violently across the road before hitting the roadside rock face and flipping several times before hitting the safety rail and plunging over the bank. Rockwood-Nguyen survived despite not wearing a seat belt, after being thrown out of the vehicle through a window before its final impact; as a result, however, she is now quadriplegic. Trang, who also wasn't wearing a seat belt, died from the injuries she sustained. The driver suffered no lasting injuries but it hasn't been confirmed whether she was wearing a seatbelt or not.

    Probably the only thing that could make that pic better is having the Dragonzord put up in the background in the non-gold bit. Oh, and here is what I was talking about earlier with the Shadow Ranger's fight against 100 flunkies and it having a counter in the corner. Lot of PR fans geeked out over it since it was in the Sentai version and they didn't expect it to show here as well.
