ninja storm got the best ratings.. and here we have yet another ninja themed show on the way... it's samurai but they are just as cool. I just don't see why disney would pass that up. I sure hope it's not the last. I kinda like watching a story play out in 2 different ways every year.

I'm not quite sure if that was a statement or a complaint, but in any case, the talking hamster was in the original Hurricangers - it wasn't anything Disney came up with originally. Come to think of it, I don't know why they kept it in, since they cut all the sentai scenes the hamster was in and replaced them with their own hamster. It would have been just as easy to use another human as an all-time mentor, but I suppose a hamster's wages are substantially lower.

Power Rangers To Fight No More16 March 2009 3:00 PM, PDT | From wenn.com | See recent WENN news


Children's action heroes the Power Rangers are to be decommissioned.

Disney bosses have decided to drop the long-running series, which has been shot in New Zealand since 2003.

The 17th season of the show, which began earlier this month, will be the Power Rangers' last.

The news has stunned Antipodean actors working on the series, who insist they were not told the project was under threat.

Voiceover actor Charlie McDermott, who has portrayed the General Crunch character for the last three years, told the New Zealand Weekend Herald newspaper he had not been told about the cancellation.

He says, "It's a bit of a bummer."

Ironically, New Zealand was one of the few countries to ban the show; the series was cancelled 1993 when the Broadcasting Standards Authority deemed it too violent.

It's not going to be like Ryuki due to americanization, but it could have been a LOT worse. Remember when Saban got his hands on Black RX *shudder*
Dino Thunder and Ninja Storm were decent at best. The only reason DT was so popular was because Tommy came back.

My peeve with Dragon Knight is the over use of special effects at points and how logic seems to fail at points durring the show.

I remember Masked Rider. It wasn't that bad and could have been even worse than it was. The only truely horrible part was when they spliced the monster from Z0 in. I had to scrub my eyes with steel wool for those sceenes.
I didn't watch it so much for Tommy. It had an interesting story. It was nice to see Tommy though.

I agree with the logic on DK, though the special effects aren't really that annoying. The camera work can be a little annoying at times.

I thought Masked Rider was cool when he was introduced on Power Rangers. Then he got his own show, all references to the rangers were wiped out and they turned it into a goofy as hell show that didn't even take itself seriously. The Robo Rider miniseries was interesting, but everything else was blah. I'm just glad to see that they're at least attempting to keep DK close to the source material.

Hey guys....It never dies

You know, if this is true, I better get another season of Kamen Rider over here or I'm gonna be pissed off.

(Of course, this gives me another excuse to find people who insist that Power Rangers is the original. Now where's that hatchet of mine....)

Thank you TV-Nihon for the release

(This way I don't have to write it every time and I'm still showing appreciation!")

Damn, and here I was hoping they took one look at Shinkenger and pissed themselves at how much chopping they'd have to do to erase its identity. -_-
