    I thought Season Two was one of the best. Admittedly it went downhill when Rita returned and Zedd was reduced to a bickering husband, but again, you can blame that on changes made to placate angry parents.

    The one thing I always thought was odd, though, was why they didn't bother changing the Rangers' costumes after they got new Zords. Since they no longer used the Dinozords, it made no sense to have costumes that reflected the prehistoric animal theme.

    Reportedly it was because they felt that the change might be very confusing to the children, which made no sense at all considering Tommy.

    Another possible reason was that the Dairanger fight footage itself, well, was a tad violent.

    On Season 2 itself, this was where I was introduced to the show so I can really relate to this episode. Episodes and multi-parters that stick out for me are White Light, Rangers Back in Time and Wild West Rangers.

    I'm rather curious to see his view on S3, since change, the word that he describes S2, happens IN SPADES.
  • Kratos Krisna
    That struck a distinct chord with me in the movie. At the time, I didn't understand that it was a Sentai Hack Job, so I wondered if they had new power sources, why didn't they get new costumes?

    And for Linkara, Will you talk about the movie? It introduced us to themes used in the third season, but the Nostalgia Critic already talked about it.
  • ZeldaTheSwordsman  - I know it's an old comment, but this is for the be
    Not changing the costumes is actually just fine here, because of two reasons:
    1. THEY'RE STILL USING THE SAME POWER COINS. This is the big one. They might not be piloting the same animals any more, but the coins their Ranger powers come from haven't changed.
    2. The main five Thunderzords are, at heart, the Dinozords, transforming from them in every use.
    It's only in season 3 that it becomes awkward, what with their coins being different animals.

    Yeah, Zedd was more menacing as a bachelor & not having to deal with Rita's whining all the time, though admittedly it was cool seeing them use their wands together to super size their monsters.

    Zedd was the best, I still remember when I saw him for the first time, HE WAS SCARY, I mean legitimately menacing, and I loved it. Major improvement over Rita, who's routine by that time had grown stale. Plus, like Linkara said, he was always more strategic in his plans beyond simply sending puddies and monsters to earth to stir up trouble.

    P.S. I think its a shame we never saw Serpentera fight the other Zords, we knew Zedd had it, but he never fully utilized it in open conflict with the Thunder Megazord as far as I remember.

    Hey Linkara, you think you should tell the Nostalgia Critic about the TMNT crossover with the Power Rangers?
  • Hades
    I'm surprised you didn't mention Zedd's early attempts to turn Tommy to his side. The original point of targeting him, was to force his conversion, as ell as several instances of holding the others lives forfeit if he didn't. Also, according to the Power Rangers Wiki, Kimberley ends up marrying Skull after they leave the show. It was in the script to Forever Red.
  • Colme  - Hmm

    I'm ashamed to say I never saw much power rangers. The only season I ever fully watched was the Time Rangers one, the one considered 'darker', though I use the term sparingly.

    I've actually been going back to watch some of the episodes of the original series since these videos started though. If such dedication can be born out of a series, it must be worth a view.

    I remember having Pirantis Head and the Red Ranger's Chinese Dragon zord as toys when I was a kid. They were pretty cool, all things considered. I liked the 2nd season much more than the first.


    HELL YES, LINKARA! "When is a Ranger Not a Ranger?" was the episode I had running through my head while you were explaining the character development at Bulk and Skull just before hand. I loved that episode! Bulk and Skull got major cool points for that. They ended up learning the identities of the Power Rangers, but decided to help them after realizing that they were basically the closest thing to friends the two of them had.

    If they revealed that they were the Power Rangers, they'd be ruined forever by the publicity and whatnot. They lost their memories in the end, but ended up saving the day.
  • That Jew with the Bagel
    yay another episode! hey speaking of future power rangers seasons, were those a zeo morpher on your wrists during you Athena#1 Review? whatever, good luck with the next one of these. if you ever have spare time you should do another lets play
  • Xeria80  - Excellent
    Very in depth review, Linkara! I remember season two being a good one and you touched on many of my favorites including Wild West Rangers which had to be one of my all-time favorites. Looking forward to season three! ^_^

    I just knew you were going to include that moment of Bulk & Skull showing their heroism.

    And man I can now notice the obviously spliced zord scenes in the episodes you mentioned, and they obviously couldn't get the costumes for the Thunderzords.
  • Apathetic One
    [b]It's funny..as a kid the Power Rangers were the best thing about the show..as I got older, Bulk and Skull became the highlight.[/b]
  • Camseyeview  - to be honest bout me being a power rangers fan
    over all i prefer kamen rider and ultraman, but i still have a fond heart for Power Rangers

    my favorite episodes would be when they would use more then one monster

    i even have a Ninjor figure in my closet because i loved that character so much

    either way if i see it on the television i will watch it

    does anyone know where i can pick up a DVD of the old series? i really want to get them.

    i actually get inspired by these monsters to draw my own monsters

    if someone can help me

    Just to double check did Tommy from a crouch jump 10 feet into the air and come down to attack Goldar?

    And thank Linkara for doing this it fun to relive some of my old childhood memories from someone who liked it as much as I did.
  • Linkara
    avatar
    Yep, he did. Serious pwnage.
  • Mattevansc3
    I know the jokes has been used to death but during the pwnage bit when Tommy punches Goldar couldn't you have dubbed in "And I am a man!". It would've been frigging hilarious :woohoo:

    Amy Jo was hands down the best actor of that entire bunch - and easily the hottest. Looking back, I'm surprised I actually kept watching all the way through Zeo since she'd left the previous year.

    PS - I'm still playing air guitar on that theme music. I need help.

    I actually like this part of this erm... what should we call this? ....Chronology? Whatever. I like this even more than the one you did for season1. And that one I already thought was pretty awesome! Anxiously waiting for season 3! :woohoo:
  • random_fan
    Great review Linkara, Bulk and Skull are awesome. You wonder why nobody else besides Bulk, Skull and the rangers don't bother chasing after the baby well these are the same people living in a city that gets attacked by monsters on an almost weekly basis, I don't think anyone there is all that smart.
  • Shadowcross  - What makes a hero?

    Bulk and Skull prove that Courage (even if it is a momentary lapse in judgment), can change cowards and bullies into heroes.

    Hurra! Part two! I love Adam, and his actor, Johnny Bosch is Such a nice fellow. He shook my hand and gave me an autograph.
    Lord Z was pretty terrifying as a kid, he even had a freaky snake! D:

    I can't wait to see more of this! Yaaay :D

    Will you cover the Ninja Turtles/Power Rangers crossover in a future episode?
  • Blitzkrieg1701

    Once again, I find myself far more intrigued by these videos than a person who never watched Power Rangers has any right to be. When you run out of seasons to cover, I hope you do more things like this. AT4W is fantastic, but I like hearing you go on about something you actually ENJOY too.

    I am loving this series Linkara. Intelligent, nostalgic, and just fun! Plus, I always thought Bulk and Skull were awesome. Glad to see that someone else thinks so too.
  • NegaJoe  - Too much Pink energy here......
    avatar
    Up until now I always wanted Bulk and Skull to become power rangers, but now I see that would have been a major contradiction to the message their characters were meant to convey : That you don't need super powers to be a hero. B)

    I hope you reconsider not reviewing the ranger movies Link. I need someone to thoroughly trash that Turbo movie.....[b] THOROUGHLY.[/b]

    What I remembered most about that movie was that a 10 year old was the red ranger and the main villian was friggin smoking hot.
  • Fluffyman
    avatar
    The "Turbo" movie is canon so he will be mentioning it.
  • Tanabata07
    Actually dude, the Blue ranger was the 10 year old. Who somehow grew to look like a teenager when he transformed. Red ranger was Tommy again. I'm still confused by that movie's plot. I mean, magic pirate ship? Really? And that volcano possession thing scene was quite...disturbing to my 8 year old self. And let's not forget the half-assed reason why Rocky wasn't part of the team this time 'round. Broken bones? [i]Exploding[i] hasn't stopped the Rangers from kicking ass. Eh, whatever, I stopped trying to make sense of Ranger logic around the time that their base started to become magic.
  • ZeldaTheSwordsman
    They're not as tough unmorphed, and the actor was injured in real life.

    I'm surprised they've never made a Power Rangers anime before.

    I mean, really? Transforming, giant robots, giant monsters or all different shapes and sizes.
    MMPR was an anime in real-life form.
    It would have made an excellent anime!

    A Super Sentai anime is a bigger question. Though I sometimes wonder if an SS anime is ever made and is adapted into US it would become a Power Rangers anime in turn.

    Excellent work as usual, Linkara. These reviews are really bringing back the memories of this series to me. Makes me wonder if I still have my old Megazord in storage (the original, and best!)
  • GoggleCandy
    "When is a Ranger not a Ranger" The minute you mentioned prominent Bulk and Skull moments and episodes, this was the first thing that popped into my mind. Not because Bulk and Skull saved the rangers (though that's a big part of things), but I felt the rangers owed it to Bulk and Skull to tell them afterwords who they were. They saw their true nature and figured out that the two had saved the entire team. For a group of charity wielding, super-ultra good nature teens, the concepts of karma and/or paying someone back apparently don't apply to them.

    I'm surprised that no one on this site has mentioned the power ranger imitators, such as VR troopers, Super Human Samurai Cyber Squad, or Beetle Borgs. But oh well, your videos are always a treat to watch.
  • iamoutofmyelement
    Don't forget the USA Network's horrible attempt to cash in on the Power Rangers craze with the Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills. I think I killed a few brain cells just now typing in that title.
  • Mattevansc3
    The Beetle Borgs will probably be mentioned in the Forever Red episode as they used the Beetle Borg costumes for the villains.
