Introducing Power Rangers: RPM

by Will

“They’ve got a power and a force that you’ve never seen before”

OK, so yesterday’s post mentioned how much I longed to be 13 again. Well, there’s also a deep, dark secret about that time of my life that MOST of my close friends know: I f’ing LOVED Power Rangers. In fact, I loved it up until about 5 years ago, when Disney bought it. Them moving the production really changed the quality of the show, and I wasn’t feeling it as much. I actually made a vow that I’d watch it as long as it was on TV, mainly because I didn’t think it had many more years left in it. Well, here were are, 15 seasons later, and it’s still going strong. Guess I called that one wrong!

Anyway, they’ve announced that the next season will be Power Rangers: RPM, and after watching this fan-made trailer of Japanese footage (courtesy of my Myspace friend, Jungle Fury 2008), I think I’m excited. No, I KNOW I’m excited! Typically, “car seasons”, where the zords and powers revolve around automobiles, usually suck, but I am jazzed for this. No more CGI just for the sake of having it. It looks just as kitschy low budget as Mighty Morphin’, without the crap factor of Turbo. Plus, they’ve finally acknowledged that all of the best PR theme songs involve the word “Go” being shouted a million times in the background. I just had to share this with y’all. I hope you’ll forgive me 🙂 :
