Oh God, we loved this series back in the mid ’90s. You couldn’t get me out of my White Ranger pajamas for nuthin’, man. And now, to find out it still lives? Happy, happy, joy, joy – oh, wait, wrong ’90s series. Sorry.
Twentieth anniversary Power Rangers series revealed: Power Rangers Megaforce – by Vinnie Bartilucci
The folks at JEFusion.com shared footage from this year’s Power Morphicon of Saban Entertainment’s promo reel for next year’s Power Rangers series. Their seventeenth series, Power Rangers Megaforce, will be based on the thirty-fourth of Toei Company’s Super Sentai series, Tensou Sentai Goseiger.
Starting with the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers in 1993, based on Ky?ry? Sentai Zyuranger, Saban has been producing series using costumes, props and action footage from the Japanese originals. The series have remained a perennial hit in the States, as the original series has done in Japan for the past thirty-six years.

Not a lot here other than an overview of one of the greatest shows of our childhood. But that works for us. Gonna have to head on over to Nickelodeon, where it’s playing, to see how it stacks up against our memories. Wow, thanks Nick.
EDITED BY LB TO ADD: Dood, as a guy who used to work for Saban, all I can say is if you want to compare the reality to your memories the likeliest thing is that you’re doomed to disappointment. OTOH, I’m also a guy who not only didn’t know POWER RANGERS was still around in the U.S., I didn’t even know Saban Entertainment still lived. (Yes, I’m still smarting from the way Haim Saban sold out everybody who worked for him back around the turn of the century. First place I ever had a deal where I played nice, did it right…and still got fired. Okay, wait, maybe not the first, but still…)
