    In Space and Dino Thunder are far and away my favorites though

    I like elements of SPD and Jungle Fury a whole heck of a lot!

    I wouldn't say I dislike any of the shows below SPD

    In Space manages to do well despite completely re-interpreting the main theme of the source material, it's crazy

  • WeedLordVegetaWeedLordVegeta Registered User regular
    Sentai is way harder to rank because the tonal shifts from era to era are so jarring

    I'd have to think about that

    other zeo thing: david yost seems recharged (for now)

    I halfway wonder if they "promised" him the Gold Ranger part.

    I seem to recall that he still wanted to be a Ranger, but the higher-ups were afraid of the bad publicity if it got out that one of the Rangers was gay.

    Go-onger
    Magiranger
    Gekiranger
    Dekaranger

    if you made me pick a top 5 at gunpoint

    Megaranger

    The only Sentai show I've watched is Shinkenger. I'm in the middle of Go-Busters, but I really want to watch Dekaranger, and Gokaiger seems like so much fun.

    Wait a minute
    I just saw some bloopers at the end of a Zeo episode about filming a movie and it had bloopers over the credits. Is that a normal thing for Zero or just that ep?

    EDIT: Jesus Christ
    It's Zeo, Billy is not only still in high school, but is apparently a Junior or a just starting his Senior year?

    SPD and Jungle Fury are both in my top 5.

    I think I've mentioned it here before, but for those curious:

    1) RPM
    2) In Space
    3) Dino Charge
    4) Jungle Fury
    5) SPD

    Although Dino Thunder could very well earn it's place, but I'm only a few episodes in so far.

    - Fixed a bug where the Moon was upside down.
    - Fixed a weird door.

    apparently, before he left for health reasons, there was going to be a reveal that ernie had known who the rangers were the entire time, which is why he gave them free shit all the time

    ernie was a doofus but he seemed above a lot of the dumb shit that went on

    very relaxed about every disaster that happened within 500 yards of his place, probably because he knew the power rangers were basically on retainer

    Ernie's biggest failing is continuing to trust bulk and skull to do simple tasks

    Not because they're bad or bullies but just because they are supernaturally incompetent

    I'm kind of surprised they haven't been banned from the Gym and Juice Bar purely for liability reasons. It's not safe for them or the establishment.

    I think I may agree with this whole list, exactly as presented.

    Including SPD and above being good/enjoyable.

    Now rank the MEGAZORDS.

    (jk we all know the dragonzord megazord was the best)

    God now I'm thinking about best individual zords.

    I think the Dragonzord has to be disqualified since it's literally just an even cooler Mecha-Godzilla, which was already an amazing mecha version of the greatest kaiju ever created.

    The dragonzord is cool but one of my criteria for an all time great zord is "looks like it's not a nightmare for the suit actor to be in"

    Over two years after Ricardo Medina’s roommate was stabbed to death, the ex-Power Rangers actor pleaded guilty today to killing Josh Sutter. With sentencing set for March 30, Medina could face up to six years in state prison.

    While no picnic, to say the least, that’s a far cry from the life sentence Medina was looking at when he was arrested on a murder charge in January 2016. That charge could have seen him behind bars for 26 years to life.

    The actor, who played Cole Evans aka the Red Wild Force Ranger in the 2002 series Power Rangers Wild Force, entered his plea to a lesser charge of “one felony count of voluntary manslaughter and admitted an allegation of using a sword in the killing,” the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said Thursday.

    Back on January 31, 2015, Medina and Sutter got into an argument concerning the former’s girlfriend. As things unfortunately escalated, Medina grabbed a sword they had around the apartment and started repeatedly stabbing Sutter, who died soon afterward.

    I had mostly forgotten that that happened.

    I only wish Jason had stayed on as the Gold Ranger for longer. Or that they dropped the space prince and just have him find a new relic. It's still one of my favorite Power Ranger riffs, and one of my favorite "elite" Ranger suit designs.

    Tommy returning as the White Ranger was freaking radical. Jason returning at the darkest hour with a new movelist? Even better.

    I feel bad for a lot of people in that situation, but one person who might not immediately come to mind is Austin St. John. I've seen several reports on this issue that just describe Medina as "the red Power Ranger" and as a result have had at least one person in real life mistake it for him.

    Here's a weird thing: the literal translation of Ohranger is "Kingranger"

    Which is the actual name of the 6th ranger

    Other weird thing: Saban calling him the "gold ranger"

    Even as an eight-year-old, I was like "that is a black ranger." Tommy had about as much gold on his green ranger

    Nowadays we have actual gold rangers, which makes it extra obvious

    And I was always let down that he wasn't Billy, who I didn't like until he stopped being a ranger, at which point he became very cool, and they were clearly hinting at him being the sixth

    But instead it was random newcomer/Jason, who I never liked

    I wasn't even aware of the discrimination back then, I just thought Billy had been cheated
