Swinton could have been promoted a grade, thus putting him in the same class despite being a year younger. Swinton probably chose the 3 worst slackers in his class that he knew wouldn’t already have a project underway. Then he can bring his own completed project, offering to let them share in the credit while he stays in charge. I think Swinton’s project opened the portal while Nimbar redirected the portal to his lair. Whether Nimbar predicted that would happen is unclear. Gorganus’ plans never made much sense. Earth has a large number of portals but Gorganus only sends one… Read more »

I didn’t have cable as a kid. But I saw a couple episodes when I went to my grandma’s house and from what I remember of them the plot was this: Someone finds out their identities then they erase their memories of what happened…

Yes the two episodes I remember had the same basic plot… that’s really bad…

I did see this when it first aired. And while it was obvious that it was much worse than any of its competition, it had a certain charm for me- maybe for at least trying to do the job, despite being hampered by a low budget on ALL aspects.

I think I found this 2 weeks before they pulled it, because I saw two episodes and then it never came on again. My parents didn’t let me watch Power Rangers when it first came out, because of the bad rap it had with violence, so I was excited to find something like it that wasn’t Power Rangers (thus, according to my 8 year old logic, I could watch it). I had to settle on VR Troopers and Samurai Cyber Squad until PW Zeo came out. Oh an Big Bad Beetle Borgs. Now that I think about it, I think… Read more »

Greatest problem with so called “American tokusatsu” was fact that they treat it as kid-flick. In Japan even if those shows were mostly orientated to kids they still were treated as sci-fi/fantasy drama and have plot worth watching even by mature people (basically it is counterpart of American superhero comic and its adaptations.. mostly because henshin hero are superheros). Some of them as awesome Garo series are even fully mature franchises. Power Rangers or other “adaptations” have at least excuse that they rip someone else work and so were forced to glue with tape something with completely different plot. If… Read more »

They’re not ripping off other people’s work. They actually got permission to adapt said work and are paying the original owners of said work for the privilege.

Well,I think we should all thank Marzgurl for doing this review so maybe Linkara doesn’t have to.

I actually saw this show when it originally aired on USA., think the cast of saved by the bell as power rangers instead of the original cast., this show was far beyond lame.,,.

I might have seen a clip or two of this show back in the day, but remember Cyber Squad so much more and even had figures to. That was an odd time, as I use to watch alot on USA at the time including my introduction to anime with Sailor Moon and Pizza Cats. If I might have seen anything of this, it was largely taken over by Power Rangers, Cyber Squad, Wild K.A.T.S, Ultraforce, and what ever was on SciFi.

Whatever this was this one was really weird but while I understand how the sunscreen part could get past the censors how did that dream sequence with him thinking about her in a bikini make it past them it’s like so weird how the censors work some times. This was a good review though and thank god you’ve forgotten about it:)

20:12-20:22 Holy crap, does his head bobble around like that often?

I kinda like some of Gorganus’s design. Mostly the head.

I seriously might have missed this during the time of its airing, or I could have sworn I came across one episode dubbed in Spanish!

Funny how Marzgurl mentioned that Saban and DiC were in competition with each other during the 90’s; in the 80’s, Saban and Levy were the main music composers of most of DiC’s productions. They even re-used a music score from Beverly Hills Teens in the first season of MMPG!

I remember watching this on USA and crushing on the brunette. And that Glenn Shadix was the voice of Nimbar. I didn’t know that Lander was the bird-thingie, though. Also, I give it props for combining two stock characters, the Smart Guy and the Black Guy into one, the Smart Black Guy.

Your theory about Drew’s parents is pretty close to what happened to Cyclops’s parents in the X-Men comics. Shout out or coincidence?

Wow. 40 episodes? Really? I thought it was just a handful of episodes, like about 10 at most. I guess the fact they kept recycling the same villains over and over didn’t help.
