View Full Version : Weird Power Rangers Series

well, i got up this morning, turned on TV (after having a pee and all that stuff :D ) and then i saw some weird power rangers series. I thought it was fairly good. nothing really outstanding. only thing is, i didn't see it from the start.

what i saw was that there was a monster with a city on its head, that was sent out by a guy called luthor or something. his costume is really bad. I mean, you can see the human face through it and stuff)

then there were five rangers. two of them looked almost the same (in uniform that is) and the other three were red, yellow and blue. the blue one was the only girl on the team. Their transformation words are "somethingsomething, ranger form!"

they had a master, who was a guinnea pig. he apparently has a very human son called ken (or something that sounds similar). that son travels later in the ep of part one to the past where he meets his dad (who wasn't a guinnea pig at that time) and mom, and the dad's evil twin (who was fired away later in a bubble summoned by some great warrior dude). Ken then gets an necklace and travels back to a the present, there he makes his first appearance as the green ranger, inside a pretty cool looking helicopter/bird zord.

so what season is that and can anybody give me some more info on that series, and pics of the zords wouldn't be bad either (they were pretty well done).

and is this one of the better series or more one of the worse?

Thank you.

That was "Power Rangers Ninja Storm", the Eleventh season of the show

Whilst it is a good season (at least to me), it is more of a PARODY of Power Rangers than a season of Power Rangers

1. It has a LOT of lame jokes as well as very funny jokes
2. There are more multi-parters, some of them are not even required
3. They have some of the worst episode titles EVER (Example: "Thunder Strangers", "All About Beevil", "Beuty and the Beach" etc)
4. Sensei was transformed into a Guiene Pig in the first episode "Prelude to a Storm"
5. "Ken" is really "Cam", you got the name wrong.
6. The villain, Lothor, is the IDENTICAL TWIN BROTHER of Sensei's human form, so that explains why he's wearing a mask

A majority of P.R Fans hate this season because of the fact it makes fun of the show rather than be more serious...which quite frankly the first two MMPR seasons never WERE

Dino Thunder is a superiror season though

which all seemingly get lost in the dubbing. I thought these eps were quite serious. that's why i liked them so much

5. "Ken" is really "Cam", you got the name wrong.
well i told you i prolly didn't get the name right. hey 't was 2 pm anfter a party last night :D

6. The villain, Lothor, is the IDENTICAL TWIN BROTHER of Sensei's human form, so that explains why he's wearing a mask
so that explains why lothor was mentionned in the "past section"

wel i thiought these eps were rather serious. that'd be great if the PR would go more adult and stuff. like going from a teen's series to an action series.

and the zords were really well done. i liked that lion thing best. those air vents which are letting out steam are great.

and btw. do you know any good PR resource page on the net?

Here are some good links

www.tvtome.com/powerrangers (no self-promotion here whatsoever :lol: )

Although I am a strict Sentai fan myself, I actually like Dino Thunder. Watchin Tommy in action as one of the main characters is nostalgia for me. Plus the chick is hot.

is there actually a kinda story arc where Ninja Storm goes over to Dino Thunder or do they just change suddenly?

See, I never watched PR on a regular basis. here and there a few eps...

Power Rangers has a new cast and a new storyline every year now...kind of like Sentai, Ninja Storm wrapped it's plot threads up and finished with it's season finale, leaving the door open to a new team of Rangers and powers.

Of course, the Ninja Storm cast will be returning this season in a special team-up episode

It's still all tied together in one way or form. During the 500th PR episode (which happens to be in Dino Thunder), they have a recap of all the power rangers series. Conner's twin brother apparently went to the same ninja academy.

Yeah I know...and it's been made even more apparent because of Tommy's inclusion in Dino Thunder.

We might never see an "Old Ranger returns as Mentor" ever again...or will we?

NO F***IN' WAY DUDE, if you truely think that, you deserve to be lynched. There is WAY more substance and maturity in Ninja Turtles than in Power Rangers, hands down. The fact that you doubted that for even a second makes me sick to my stomach and wonder what the hell you're even doing here if your mind is filled with such perversions of reality.

Not to diss a popular show here...but I hate Power Rangers. The only time I liked it was when it was Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Those series were awesome, especially when Kimberly was still in it. I liked her replacement Kat, but when MMPR ended it all went downhill for me I'm afraid.

I have to stick with Dr. Doom on this one....TMNT has been around FAR longer than Power Rangers and is FAR more gripping in it's storytelling

But give a fair shake to P.R fellas...given it's "limitations" it can be pretty damn good, to each his own

Something interesting I did a while ago was go to IMDB and check out all the old Rangers to see if they did anything after the show. It's pretty interesting. Did you know that the original Yellow Ranger died in a car wreck in 01?

Yes. And Bulk played a woman in some movie.

David Yost (who played Billy, the original Blue Ranger) played a gay character in a stage play

Funny facts: the guy took temper tantrums on the set of Power Rangers Zeo and eventually left three episodes prior to his character leaving the series

Dr. Doom
04-30-2004, 03:54 PM
So that's why in Billy's last appearance it OBVIOUSLY wasn't him and they were talking to him on another planet with really sh**y reception.

Funny Facts: "Forever Red" is a direct sequel to a fan-film produced by Power Rangers Wild Force story editor Amit Bhaumik..who included it into continunity in the series bible

And as for the person Kimberly ditched for Tommy?

Eugeine Skullovitch, also from the series bible

Perhaps you're thinking of Walter Jones (http://www.veraanderson.com/photoalbum/dogwalker/D-1208-walter.JPG), the Black Power Ranger?

*facepalm*

Walter Jones also starred on some Star Trek-ish show on Nickelodeon after his MMPR run, didn't he? I forget the name of the show.

And Thuy Trang, the original yellow ranger (Trini), also starred in The Crow: City Of Angels in 1996.

Hmmmmm, let me get this strait, the turtles are for all age groups but power rangers aren't? What determines what shows are for "all age groups"? :roll:

BTW, I don't really like power ranngers......I haven't watched it since I was a youngin.

they shouldn't even have started it. the acting was sooo bad. and the german dubbing sucked (as usual)

well anyway, yesterday there were another two episodes. only thing is i missed part of one (the important part).

Ok, here i go. lothor sets loose a lot of monsters, they all attack earth. Rangers are very busy keeping them from doing more harm and cam gets stung by some bug alien. he then gets a weird hairdo and starts talking and moving in a funny way. the guinnea pig then said that he somehow found out that cam is turning into an insect.

Then came the part i missed

cam takes tori's place in the megazord and the bug gets blown away. cam is fine. The End

now what I'd like to know is what happened during the time i was making breakfast.

thanks

I said "like" two episodes...I only remember seeing it a few times....One of which was he episode where(I thhink) Tommy and the red ranger had to get to the top of the mountain or something to unlock it or something like that.
