Yeah Power Rangers! Deal with it! I love them especially Mighty Morhpin which is easily the best but you also have ones like Zeo, Turbo, & Lost Galaxy. It was one of my favorite shows when I was young and it's still today (not any of the new ones though I stopped after Wild Force). SO yeah here's a thread for Power Rangers general discussion.

Loved the old Mighty Morphin Show...anything after that just didn't interest me.
Only caught clips of the later shows while changing channels...remember something with Dinosaurs, something in Space (might be the Lost Galaxy one...) and Ninja Storm.
And don't forget the awesome Movie with Ivan Ooze..had the VHS and played the shit out of it. Same goes with the game for the Genesis which was a Beat'em up like Final Fight. Even though it was based on the movie it also included Levels with the older Power Rangers like Jason, Zack and Trini and you would fight Goldar twice (One normal Size and one big size).

Dude I watched the crap outta my VHS of that movie I fucking loved it their suits looked amazing and OH MAN the power rangers super nintendo fighting game is amazing for sure play it if you haven't! But god damn Ivan Ooze what a weird bad guy to just introduce for the movie and my god the CGI for him and the Megazord in the final battle looked god awful but I still loved that movie.

Believe I was in about 6th grade when the original came on, so I was a bit old for the whole phenomenon.

Which didn't stop me - watched the "Mighty Morphins" before school every morning. I think it was the chick in pink spandex, honestly...

But even at that point, I realized that it was a "mash-up" show, comprised of stuff from Japan that bore zero resemblance to the American (or maybe Canadian) shot bookends they included to make it make sense to us. I grew up watching Robotech, so even when I was twelve I already had an appreciation for slapping together a show out of two or even three others.

And, again, Pink Ranger... Very Happy

Yeah I think it was because of Power Rangers I have such love for Kaiju movies like Godzilla, Gamera & Ultraman. And yeah you can see a huge difference between the original Super Sentai footage and the American Saban footage but thats something I really love about it.

Oh god I totally forgot that happened! The reason for this is around the time Saban started the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles The Next Mutation show in late 1997 and Power Rangers In Space in February 1998 and it was just an easy way to promote Power Rangers and try and save the TMNT show. This was only the fourth episode of Power Rangers In Space. The TMNT show started in September and utterly failed ending in May 1998 only lasting one season before getting cancelled. All I have to say is Turtle with boobs...

Yeah, I wish I had seen that. At this point in my life I was sitting in a college dorm, taking LSD and watching Blues Clues. That would've been perfect.

Ugh I fucking hate Samurai! They should have stopped when Disney dropped Power Rangers a couple years ago but then Nickelodeon picked them up last year and started Samurai. But they already did an episode like this called Forever Red back during Wild Force where all the red rangers came together and fought against some creature attacking the moon it was pretty badass.

Too many spinoffs of this show. Too many BS storylines. Power Rangers was cool when I was a kid but it does not age well.

I remember I had one Power Rangers tape when I was a kid. Got it for my birthday. I was so excited. Then I watched and found out that none of the episodes had the MegaZord. This was when I was convinced that my parents knew how to troll me hardcore.
