cant blame turbo if you know super sentai history. when ohranger aka zeo on air in japan, japan was under terrorrist sarin gas attack in tokyo and during this period ohranger show was ment to be serious extreme thus they have to dumb down the plot and almost going to be end of SS series. however the following series carranger aka turbo was set to be friendly funny theme...thats what happen....and about the kids as ranger, its already happen in dairanger the kibaranger aka white ranger also the brutal violence series following zyuranger aka first PR which Saban skips it...



and here some zyuranger fight footage

That's fine, but PR doesn't necessarily need to follow the themes and tone of the Sentai. Look at the difference between Go-Onger and RPM: PR took a much more serious approach to a more kid-friendly Sentai.

Yeah sure. I'm in. Why not? Coupon code makes it easier to swallow.

For the install plan, the 40 a month makes this worth it, even if I don't care for Power Rangers aside from the first season. I'm curious to check out the rest, and even if it's on Netflix, I feel like I need this regardless. Who's to say if it'll last once these come out, anyway?

I have a feeling these will hold value, too. So even if it sucks, unloading it won't be too big of a hit, if at all.

What are the chances that if I order this they will give me a variant "Brock" figure instead of the Red Ranger in Uniform? I wouldn't mind having the Austin St. John Red Ranger, but I am way more into his "alter" ego Brock.

As much as I want Brock to be Austin St. John, he's not. :(

If you're only interested in certain seasons, Amazon Germany has the original German releases from a few years back for 24 euros (30 USD). These are FULL seasons, rather than half seasons.

Not to bash you guys for loving power rangers but are you guys teenagers? I'm 28 and mighty morphin was like crack to me when I was 10-12 but grew out of it after the first or second season. Watched a little bit of the white ranger and then stopped. Are the later seasons good? I mean, is it meant for an older audience? Just curious why you guys are so hyped about a $200 set. I think I saw power rangers on netflix but didn't bother to watch it.

I think some people just grow out of different things. I was visiting family last year and some of my little cousins' kids were watching an old VHS tape of Power Rangers and I remember thinking holy hell this is awful. I used to watch them all the time when I was a kid, but now I have no idea how I found it entertaining.

On the other hand, I can still watch Batman, G.I. Joe, Transformers and other shows I watched as a kid and enjoy it today. I think it probably just depends on how much nostalgia value you get out of something. If you're more attached to a certain show you loved as a kid, it might be easier to overlook its shortcomings.

It varies from show to show for me, a lot of the Disney late 80s/early 90s animated series stand up for me. I tried watching the original animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles again and I don't know what it about the way the voice actors, I don't know, talk down to the audience in their pattern of speech (like midway between baby talk and normal speaking patterns) that it literally gives me a headache if I try to watch more than 4 episodes in a row.

I had the same problem (to a lesser extent) with He-man.

If you don't want seasons 4-7 then you can buy the complete mmpr season set later as it will be released separetly. However you will not get the 3 DVD disks worth of bonus features.

You're not alone man. I often go back and watch Arthur, Busytown, and The Magic School Bus. I was on vacation last year, and Busytown came on. I lost it, lol. I had my cereal bars, and orange juice.I miss the 90's so much. Who could forget Family Matters?

Wait a second, I'm confused. I thought Time Life said that it would be the individual releases bubble-wrapped together? Are we getting the box instead? That box set is fucking beautiful, man. Then again, I may just pick up the MMPR box set and then the individual Zeo set. Those are the only two I thoroughly enjoyed.

by separate disc cases they meant the box sets. Since there's two of them, they're going to bubble wrap them together with the figure. That's what I figured it would be from the start, but some members like Kerig seemed to have gotten confused by it.

Time Life will take the separate disc cases and the action figure, and wrap them in bubble wrap and send them to you in a regular shipping carton.

Ah, ok. Thanks for clearing that up. I'll just buy both sets then. $40 a month isn't too bad.

Can anyone check if the DADDYDOUBLE code is still active (I'd check myself, but I can't on the computer I'm using right now)? I read somewhere that it might only be working through Father's Day (I totally didn't get that from the code :\), but it couldn't hurt to check, right?

looks like it's dead now. But if you sign up for their newsletter (found on main page) you apparently get 10% off your next order which is the same discount as daddydouble
