Its 1998 predecessor was SO much better......
on January 5, 2001
Seems that Haim Saban can never stop those "Power Rangers" from being on the air. Even with all those new monsters and characters and improved special effects, he hasn't really regained the popularity he had in the beginning, except with his more recent Digimon. The PR came to America in 1993 and immediately they were a major hit. Austin St. John, Thuy Trang, and Walter Emmanuel Jones, however, left the show in 1995 because they were dissatisfied with payment (them greedy cowards!); thus, Karan Ashley, Steven Cardenas, and Johnny Yong Bosch took over. The release of the first Power Rangers movie in summer 1995 thus didn't do well at the box office at all, our once favorite superheroes were going downhill. Making subsequent spin-offs didn't help.
Now what? First they were the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (everyone knows who they were), then they transformed into Zeo, shifted into turbo, conquered space, forged through lost galaxies, and traveled at the spped of light to the rescue. Now, there'll be "Time Force" like, next month, but I don't think it'll be any more fun than Lost Galaxy may have been. Power Rangers in Space (1998) was SO much better than that. What the heck....it's 2001 and with the Digimon garnering high ratings on Nielsen like mad (yet their movie wasn't very successful either), what WILL be these guys' future? I guess there won't be no future for them now that they're no longer #1. Even the mystic knights of tir na nog were never the popular warriors the PR were. I don't care anymore. It's only a TV show.
