Nope, just Japanese. Easy mistake.

I remember hanging out with some friends in the late 80s and watching dubbed adaptations of one of the original Japanese series on Night Flight. Most of Night Flight was "Hey, are you high? Then check this out!" Anyway, I surprised that it actually became a successful series in this country.

Yeah, anyone familiar with earlier Japanese monster shows (like Ultraman, which was mentioned, and Giant Robo, which wasn't) wouldn't be shocked or surprised.

I actually tried watching Power Rangers, but it pales in comparison to even the stupidest Giant Robo episode.

I find that offensive.

Last year for my anniversary I got the Impursonator for my wife. Things were going fine especially when I found Oysterizer but I went all Mr. Gooriffic and that put an end to that.

Considering Mushrooms were legal in Japan when the Power Rangers were being produced there, I'd say subby is somewhat correct.

There was a time when I was generally unsure if fap. The Pink Ranger changed all of that.

Was it Jason David Frank? Did he really give you a kick?

A few years ago, the whole original team (except Thuy Trang) were at a con that I used to go to every year. I was going to send my VHS copy of the Power Rangers movie to get a collection of autographs. I didn't get home in time to drop off my tape. One of my more nerdy regrets...

*sigh*

It's tough to hear about this show without remembering that farked up power ranger. The guy hijacked a yacht, tied cinder blocks to the couple that owned it, and threw them overboard alive. All the funny-cute-weird kitsch is gone.

Indeed, it was Jason David Frank. I was never into Power Rangers, so I didn't hang around his events, but he drew a good crowd and was supposed to be cool to work with. I did help carry his box of autograph pictures to his table. And there's a cool pic of him fighting a pair of stormtroopers out there.

I hear he's a nice guy. One of my buddies that did make it to the con took a lesson from him. My friend had been studying martial arts for a few years and was pretty excited when JDF held a session.

Not just racist, but on the Japanese original, the Yellow Ranger was a man, baby!

Also, The actress Thuy Trang died in a car accident.

I've always found Silver Horns and Lipsyncher to be pretty cool, mainly because they got to be playable in the Super NES MMPR Fighting Edition, alongside Goldar (who will always be the most awesome PR bad guy), Lord Zedd, and Ivan Ooze (the Thunder Megazord, Ninja Megazord, Shogun Megazord, and White Tigerzord Battle Mode were playable on the good guy side).

And, of course, the super-sexy Scorpina, bringer of boners to confused young guys. Until she changed into her gigantic humanoid scorpion form and terrified everyone.

Yeah, Power Rangers had a wide slew of memorable monsters: Nasty Gnome, Bones, Soccadillo, Mutitis, Piranhahead, Lokar, Fighting Flea. God I miss the first two seasons.

What I thought when I saw the headline.

The Impursonator looks like the result of Patrick Starfish getting into toxic sludge.

wow not only did the power rangers drive people crazy but it also killed JFK:

"A jury has also recommended death for John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a 43-year-old Long Beach gang member convicted of helping Deleon throw the Hawkses off their 55-foot yacht, named the "Well-Deserved.""

God I hated that show. Granted I grew up watching Voltron, which looking back was just as cheesy, but it was at least cartoon cheesy. Power Rangers was live action over-acted, over-scripted faux martial arts formulaic nonsense. Every show was exactly the same goddamn thing, without fail. And that robot. That farking robot. It's like some producer just discovered that children often enjoy random derp and flashy colors and decided, fark it, let's turn that shiat up to eleven.

He was an uncredited extra in a single episode according to Wikipedia. How does this make him a MMPR star?

The article must have played up the connection, big surprise. I didn't look it up anywhere. Having seen the show once, it's all I, and maybe some others, associate with it. The people who watched the show probably have a much different perspective.
