Looking at the episodes now I can't believe how bad it is... But at the time it was real bad ass brilliant. I had all of the toy zords and figures, and actually have them all in their original boxes in my parents loft.

Whenever we played Power Rangers, I was the blue one. I always remember that Kimberley always got into trouble/needed rescuing, and somewhere Alpha would be running around going 'ay ay ay' :lol:

The original movie at the time was epic - who doesn't remember Ivan Ooze? But I remember it going downhill afterwards, and I turned off once the originals left.

Also very sad to discover the actress who played the original yellow ranger Trini died back in 2001.
Yeah I think there is potential there but I think if they are going to use material from the series they should concentrate on the first few seasons.
I was really sad to find out she had died too, I was watching a where are they now video on youtube earlier and it mentioned her death in it :(

The Japanese actress who played Rita is also dead. I always preferred her to the American actress they brought in.

I'm actually quite optimistic about this reboot. I'm looking forward to seeing who is cast as the rangers.

Does anyone else remember this beast?

The Megazord looked like an ant next to it. It was actually quite scary as a kid...

OMG I LOVED Power Rangers as a kid. I've always wanted to become one. :lol:

I watched this movie like 100000 times. Definitely one of my favorite movies as a kid.
The tv show was cool as well, although it quickly went downhill after a few seasons.

Yeah I think so, there are a few actors from subsequent seasons that have gone on to appear in other things as far as I know.

Yeah, she actually has had a quite moderate but successful TV acting career after "The Power Rangers", She was a regular in the American cult-following Series "Felicity", and currently she is the main on the canadian series "Flashpoint" which has run for 5 seasons already and has gotten cool ratings in US :o

Loved the first few series and Time Force!

I think they could do extremely well with this, give it a more mature feel about it like Batman and it could be huge!

The Power Rangers TV show is still on with new seasons each year. The current season is Super Megaforce with several past rangers including Tommy make appearances for the Legends War! Next year the new season will be Power Rangers DinoCharge and that season is suppose to have like 8 to 10 rangers. Jason David Frank who played Tommy is now a successful MMA fighter. :lol:

Red Power Ranger >>>

I remember I bought his uniform to dress up for a carnival; secretly, because my parents were objecting to this. It was the 1st time I went to a shop on my own and purchased :lol: I also bought the camera and every pic I was taking was stamped with their logo in the corner. Mess :lol:

I think that it'd be great if they found a way to tie it into the tv series roots.
I believe that a fair few of the later series were set on "alternate earths/worlds" so there's no reason why they couldn't at least try and set it in the same "universe".
I think it'd mean alot to those of us that grew up with the original to at least reference the original series with a few cheeky cameos.
Happy endings are just stories that haven't finished yet...

I was so obsessed with the Power Rangers before! :o :o I had all the cards, the action figures, stickers, etc. I was sad that Jason and Trini were replaced in the movie. I always felt that they were better than Rocky and Aisha. :-? :-? I watched the movie and bought the home video (VHS copy) of that as well. :lol: :lol: I even memorized the lines especially the ones they said during the action sequences. :oops: :oops:
