BUY IT! Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the original 1993 series was remastered and airing every Saturday here in the States. WHY WASN'T I TOLD?!

A little cheesy but good to see it back on the air waves regardless. I don't know if it's still on now or not, not sure how many episodes they have set to go through one season, and how many the original season had, but they're up to episode 12 already. You can find them on youtube.

This guy's got all 12 so far.

edit: AND because I feel as giddy as a fat school boy in a candy store right now after learning of all this...Here's episode 1 of the new Super Sentai series that's airing right now. Thank god for Youtube...

I'm a little disapointed so far...this season of Sentai is basically Dragon Ball meets Yu-Gi-Oh.

Good to see this stuff again. I used to watch this show religiously as a kid.

Good times...good times.

Honestly I think I'd rather the original run just re-aired instead of this remastered one. They turned it into a comic book type thing, which I can deal with, but all the damned stock footage! :mad: I know it's been a long running season overseas, and our MMPR was, what, Season 7 or 8 of the original Super Sentai series. The show we got (season 1 at least, not sure on the others) was maybe 80% stock footage from that season of Super Sentai, I think it was esimated at MAYBE 6 minutes of new footage with the actors of our series.

Looked it up real quick. Super Sentai, started in 1975, still filming today. 34 seasons. Damn...MMPR got canned here in the States...

I watched some of this as an older teenager, my youth was all about M.A.S.K, Thundercats, Transformers and He-Man, Hell I even watched She-Ra!! Not to forget Visionaries! one of the cartoons ever made! But as my daughter got older she started watching Power Rangers. I watched some with her and it was great to watch again, we really liked Dino Thunder!

Good times, good times!

I used to watch this as a kid, but they mainly show the newer episodes on the kids channels now here in the UK.

I even remember gettnig a pirate copy of the movie lol. Was filmed in the cinema and I remember someone getting up in the middle of the film and seenig the black outline of there body..

I loved power ranged as a kid (which kid didn't?) but if these episodes were shown again I dont think I could bring myslef to watch it.. I'll probably get frustrated after a while at how chessy it is.

Best series ever! They have so many branch offs of the original. I always liked the Lost Galaxy and Time Force series (thanks to Wikipedia I remember the names of the series' :p). The movie was pretty entertaining too.

On a side not, they have pretty stereotypical outfit colors and I cannot believe that I never noticed that.

I might have to tune in a few times to remember my past :p I'll probably tune in all the time though. Now hopefully this means we'll see the whole MMPR on DVD:)

I hope I hope I hope I hope I hope ...

Really, I wish they would just bring the Sentai series over already. It's much better in comparison. That and Kamen Rider of course :D Sadly I guess any show outside of Power Rangers fails here in the States. We had the one Ultraman series from Japan airing on Fox at one point but it didn't do so hot. Don't know if they cancelled it or let it run to the end and never picked up the next season/series.
