Power Rangers Samurai

Wtf noob this isn't about games. SHUT UP voice in my head.

I watched the trailer for the new Power Rangers series and I'm not sure exactly what it was but I was actually glad. Like any kid of the 90s, I adored the Power Rangers and watched them every day. I collected the action figures and even had a blue ranger costume at one point.


But like everyone else, I grew up and stopped watching. I think I tuned out right as Power Rangers Turbo started airing. I've check back in every once and a while for nostalgia's sake, but I only saw a rape of the original series. Dino rangers in space? lol no. (Or whatever the hell it was) Like most awesome things of the 90s, it had been turned into a money cow.

So imagine my surprise when I go to turn off the TV in the living room and see a commercial playing for the newest installment to the series "Power Ranger Samurai". It was like watching the original series all over again. Action? Yep. Cheesy ass catch phrases? Yep. Messages about believing in yourself? Yep Original theme song? Yep. And what's this? It's actually made by Saban? I'm not even embarrassed to say it, I am totally watching it when it airs.

So check it out! Unless you were born after 2000. Then go away.

Checked it out. Can't say that it really clicked anything for me. I remember the original series and it was enjoyable but that was all I ever saw. Oh well, thanks for the recommendation none-the-less.

Even as a kid I didn't care for the Power Rangers...

I preferred the cartoons from the 80's.

YES, we are back! It's almost exactly like the first one, without Tommy, and I'm pretty sure the pink ranger isn't in porn yet. Also was I the only one who thought that blue ranger's mask looked like a pot leaf?

I've been eagerly waiting for this ever since Saban bought the rights backs. Also, Turbo was horrible. But In Space wasn't that bad.

Soldiers usually win the battles and generals get the credit for it.
