The New Power Rangers discussion thread

When I was 9 I honestly couldn't tell the difference... And now that I'm almost 23 I'd probably still be hard pressed to tell the two actresses apart if they were in full make up and costume.

There's always the voice.
 
If both actresses did the whole *loud and annoying* thing with their voices, I'd just roll with it.

I think that would definitely do some good for the Power Rangers franchise, and I think technology is finally where it needs to be, so we don't get the clunky CGI Megazords that we had in the first movie. Think more along the lines of Transformers-type CGI robots to give the idea of linking fighting robots some credibility and realism.

That seems possible. But from the way its phrased in the announcement, it'll probably be a spinoff from the newer series. And since Saban moved PR from Disney to Nickelodeon/Viacom, Paramount is the likely candidate to co-finance and distribute a third movie.

Gen 3 is the "Disney Era"; with practically NO connection with the Zordon era at all, except Tommy.

And Adam, if you count OO's "Once a Ranger" two-parter. RPM is pretty much its own separate universe, and it's the best Disney-era season IMO. It deconstructed the whole concept, but it knew when to play it straight or make people laugh.

Saban intends to make the future PR seasons more campier than the previous seasons, but that could backfire.
 
RPM was a GREAT season. I also am still a fan of Ninja Storm.

Yea Ninja Storm was pretty good.... loved all the characters...one of my favorite Red Rangers... and Yellow ranger was awesome... it was odd seeing a Guy as a Yellow ranger lol
 
Yea, Dustin opened my eyes in seeing that a male Yellow ranger was ok. I think Chip was after him.
 
I may have gotten this wrong, but which was the first Disney season was it Ninja Storm or Wild Force?

It was Wild Force ...best thing about Wild Force was the team up with Time Force otherwise it was pants lol


Gold Samurai loving the updates on PR and also finally I have time now to check out the last two sentai seasons, I'm a bit behind lol and miss watching Sentai.
 
I don't remember the series much, but the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers Movie was the shiz, I watched that movie like all the time when I was like 6. I even re-watched it a few years back when I found the tape and a tape player :O and still enjoyed it, so if the newer stuff isn't as campy and poorly acted as what I saw on Jetix I'd watch (plus they need cooler costumes, less shiny faux foil material)

oh yeah, and I vaguely remember the one where there was a black cowboy blue ranger and an athletic yellow ranger??? don't recall the name, I think the pink ranger was E. Asian and they were from the future or something

best thing about it was the theme song and thats about all I liked..lol

For me I still maintian that SPD was the best post-Space season. Id rank Dino Thunder and Ninja Storm beneath it
 
I forgot, Rita kinda connects the Saban and Disney eras. I hate Disney.

WESLEY
Hey, Ava. You came to help me?

AVA
Looks like I got you in a lot of trouble.

WESLEY
In trouble? Are you joking? Thanks to you, I will be able to open my own restaurant. I've been interviewed for magazines! Gold Sushi is famous!

AVA
Are you sure this is what you want?

WESLEY
Of course! It's my life's dream.

AVA
Is it?

WESLEY's happy face fades.

WESLEY sits.

WESLEY
Ever since I took over for my father, I promised myself that I would someday turn this place into a great restaurant. When I was a kid, my father sold this business and I was so upset about it, I ran away from home. I'm starting to understand more why he did it.

AVA
Wesley...

WESLEY
Even if it's not exactly how I imagined it, I still get to open a restaurant, right. I can always serve sushi too.

AVA sits opposite him. She pretends to be a customer.

AVA
I would like one piece of sushi, please.

WESLEY prepares a tuna roll and serves AVA.

WESLEY
Here you are.

She takes a bite. It's bad. Wesley looks disappointed.

AVA
It doesn't taste as good. Tastes kind of like curry.

WESLEY
I've been up to my eyeballs in curry.

AVA
I think I prefer the old Wesley. Your dream was a sushi restaurant, not curry, right?

WESLEY stares at the pot of curry next to the fish and wasabi. He knows AVA is right.

AVA
Sadie, Sadie, are you okay?

SADIE
Yes, it's nothing.

AVA notices blood.

AVA
You're injured. Let me see.

SADIE
I told you. Don't worry. Just go back. I'll meet you inside.

AVA
I won't leave you like this.

SADIE
I'm fine, please.

AVA
I think you need to rest a while. The kids are fine.

SADIE looks into the room and sees a group of girls playing with dolls and toys.

SADIE
I always wanted to play like that.

SADIE turns to AVA. She smiles but is sad.

SADIE
I never got to play with other girls. When I was young,
all I wanted to do was play house, pretend I was the mom, but...I always had to practice, to train...I'm sorry for talking this way. I don't quite feel like myself.

AVA
It's okay. That's your dream? To marry...

SADIE
Sometimes, I just wish I could have a normal life; become a
normal wife, maybe even a normal mother one day.

AVA
I am sure you will be all of those things.

SADIE
Well, that was the plan. But sometimes, I think
about what would happen if we...

AVA
I know...

SADIE brushes it off with a smile.

SADIE
I'm sorry. I'm just being...such a--

AVA
No. It's fine. I understand.

SADIE
Let's go back inside. C'mon. I don't know
what's gotten into me. I'm getting so emotional...

SADIE smiles to AVA and tries to get back up, but she is held back by the shooting pain in her side.

BARON
No reception here either.

WESLEY tries to get up.

WESLEY
Let's go back up or else the girls will-

BARON pulls him back down.

BARON
You can't fight like that. I'll go alone.

WESLEY
There's no way you'll make it.

BARON stands up to leave.

BARON
You stay here. If by chance, you make it down, contact Reese and the others.

WESLEY
Wait...

WESLEY tries to get up but at first is too weak. BARON is attacked by foot soldiers and WESLEY comes and saves him.

BARON
What do you think you're doing? I told you-

WESLEY
Why are you always trying to protect me?

BARON
I'm not, I just...

WESLEY
If you really considered me an equal, you wouldn't ask me to stay behind. You wouldn't ask Reese, would you? See, you don't take me seriously. I have always wanted to be a Ranger and I am up to the challenge. To you, it might seem like I'm just playing Super Hero, but if someone or something is about to take a life... I will fight to save it.

WESLEY grabs BARON's shirt.
WESLEY
Heroes do not worry about themselves when others are in need.

WESLEY and BARON lock stares.

BARON
It looks like you might be a hero after all. Let's see how you fight when the odds are stacked against you.

WESLEY
Let's go. We'll show them what we can do together.

WESLEY begins to ascend. BARON stays behind.

BARON
Don't worry. Reese and the others will come.

WESLEY stops, surprised.

WESLEY
You spoke with them?

BARON
No, but they'll be ready for practice soon. When they see I'm not there, they'll know something is wrong.

BARON walks past WESLEY.

WESLEY
Hey, wait for me.

WESLEY follows BARON up the hill.

WESLEY
They would know just because you missed practice?

BARON
I don't live a disciplined life for nothing. Reese and the others will come.

WESLEY
Okay. Entrusting your life means to have faith in the others...

BARON
Not faith. Certainty.

They reach the top.

BARON
We just have to hold them off until they get here.

An army of foot soldiers awaits them. It's time for battle.

WESLEY
Let's hope you're right. Either way, the battle begins now.


Apart from the names, it's the exact same as Shinkenger

That could be Lightspeed Rescue. In that series, Joel (Green Ranger) was known for wearing a cowboy hat, and Kelsey (Yellow Ranger) was into extreme sports.

nice pics from the expo, sucks nothing for the new show.
 
Why are the showing the MMPR's at the Expo?
 
Presumably because it's the most iconic series in America when in Japan "Zyuranger" was nothing particularly special.

If things had turned out differently "Jetman" the series before Zyuranger would have been up at that expo.

POWER RANGER SKINNY MACK and BIG JACK SIDES

EXT Park - day

Skinny Mack and Big Jack get their groove on as they are walking through Bark Park in their cleanup getup and gear with a dozen clothes pins attached to their uniform.

SKINNY MACK
Oh, a Hot dog.

Big Jack looks as a wiener dog walks by.

BIG JACK
Yeah, that’s Hot Dog alright!

SKINNY MACK
No, I mean a hot dog

(He finds a hot dog on the ground and picks it up with his trash grabber tongs.)

SKINNY MACK
Did you know that a dog is man’s best friend?

BIG JACK
Yes, but cats have nine lives.

SKINNY MACK
But we wouldn’t have a job if wasn’t for dogs.
(He attaches a clothes pin on his nose as he goes to scoop the poop.)
Wow, looks like Skippy got into the family barbecue last night, looks like a whole corn cob.

BIG JACK
(Oblivious to what Skinny Mack is doing, he sings and dances as he daydreams about the perfect barbecue.)
Mm mm….. Barbecue. Hot Dogs, Corn, Ribs… I could go for a barbecue right now.

SKINNY MACK
Big J, You always have food on your mind. Let’s get back to work.

SKINNY MACK AND BIG JACK
(Singing and dancing away)
I had a dog named Hooper, went doodie on the lawn, thank you Hooper for makin us the coolest Pooper Scoopers! walking the dogs….. walking the dogs…. walking the dogs!

[SKINNY MACK] 18-23 year old all ethnicity male. He has a slim, lanky build with great comedic abilities. He is someone that you look at and he makes you laugh. Skinny Mack and his sidekick, Big Jack work as street cleaners and have an entertaining way of picking up trash alongside the streets by dancing their way through the streets with broom in hand. They are the comedic relief and the fun side of each story. They are constantly getting themselves in difficult but comedic situations. These two characters are similar to Laurel and Hardy or Bulk and Skull, both with over the top slap stick skills. Dance, street dancing or hip hop abilities are a big plus.

[BIG JACK] 18-23 year old all ethnicity male. He is on the heavier side with great comedic abilities. He is also some who you look at and he can make you laugh.

So when does this new show come out? what channel?
