Geki and the others still have to save those kids in the shuttle from both the Dora Titan and Dora Skeleton.

I like how in older sentai they have slow mecha progression. Nowdays 2nd episode is the maximum for the giant robot.

Also, I believe that the actor that portrayed Dan appeared for a few episodes in Jetman, as part of a group that where played by Sentai Alumni, him being the odd one out. Guess that got fixed lol.

Mighty good episode, and quite unique too - Dora Skeleton is defeated in an untraditional manner rather than the usual "stun and super attack", and the rather generic Dora Titan stands out by being fought by a solo non-combination mecha, a feat we rarely ever get to see. AND we get the backstory they for some reason didn't put into episode 1.

Ahh, so this is one of the episodes that scares me as a child, how nostalgic... :lol:

Btw, I swear that I've seen that earth-splitting scene being used a lot in many tokusatsu beside this one...

Huh, only a 20 min runtime. That's odd...

Yeah. Look at our DaiRanger releases. At least by Mega I think it's up to 24 minutes

It seemed like they were refreshing their own memories, (convenient for us), and only did so now as before they had to go right into action.

I was a little kid who knew no English when Power Rangers came on tv here and my reading abilities weren't enough to perfectly understand the Dutch subs, it's still feeling rather fresh to me, no "hey I recognize" feelings yet beyond the main cast.

Also, did we really need that skirt lift before the commercial break? Just feels a little out of place...

And is it just me, or did early 90's female senshi not have very unique personalities? Mei just seems like Rin to me.

It's Japan in the early 90s. Of course the upskirt shot was necessary.

I admit, I really do find it interesting how different the overall feel of Zyu is compared to MMPR, though I'm seeing enough footage that was used over here to keep the nostalgia going. Bandora's "I have a headache" moment brought back memories.

I'm a little annoyed at Goldar/Griffozer, though. He was always one of my more favorite villains in Power Rangers, so I guess the idea that he was originally pretty much just Bandora's pet flying monkey monster with no speaking lines bothers me. I'm used to the idea of a purely animal commander after watching W, but it's just a bit jarring to see the differences here turn out to be the way they are.

On another note, the Tyranno fight was awesome even for its time. The slower progression of the mecha in this show actually makes it more interesting to watch them have to struggle to try and pull out a victory. PR, it was just like, "Here, you five kids off the street are now saviors of the planet, you can kick anybody's ass" and they did. Here, it's more along the lines that sure, they were sleeping for a couple eons on the offchance Bandora got back out of that space dumpster, but they're not actually as prepared for a fight as they thought they'd be. Makes for better writing.

Actually I feel like that for a lot of the early sentai, for both male and female characters. I have a hard time telling them apart unless they're color coded or have unique hairstyles because a lot of the time they're a) in a group or b) in suits so unless it's a character episode, I'm kinda lost. Dairanger I think is the worst offender since it has 4 males all with short black hair who rarely wear their suit color.

Always liked Finster in MMPR and I think I'm going to like Puripurikan.

Oh yeah. Tyrano Sonic is awesome. It causes the dirt to make the monster disintegrate.

I don't think all of them are. Let's look at Jetman's main female characters.
-The serious, no-nonsense commander of the Jetman Commander Aya.
-An heiress bored out of her mind Kaori
-The cheerful, free-spirited high schooler Ako

I'd say just wait until her character-centric episode.
