Power Ranger UOs
Billy was the hottest male Power Ranger, by far (even with the glasses--but when they were off, DAMN!).
As a kid, I like Jason best *swoon mcswoon*. Nowadays, Billy looks better. I almost want to bust out my VHS tape hoard and relive the FOX kids memories, complete with sweet 90s commercials.
I actually like the Power Rangers Zeo theme a bit better than the original theme.
Well, let's have a face off. Mighty Morphin theme
vs. Zeo theme
. So hard to choose...I'm going with your UO here though. Zeo wins by a narrow margin. How I wish they'd bring back power metal themes for kids shows. I'd say the Space theme
was probably the third best. Only because it reminds me of old Iced Earth and how can that be bad thing???
Kim did actually spend a fair amount of time fainting in Tommy's arms once he returned as the White Jesus Ranger.
Haha...White Jesus Ranger. I never did care much for the pink ranger. My UO is that the pink ranger was always the token pretty girl and that bothered me a lot as a kid. It also pissed me off that all of the PR stuff for girls was pink. I was way into the yellow ranger and I could never find anything that was all about her. Eventually I settled for boy stuff with blue and red rangers on it because I refused to support the pink ranger.
Speaking of TMNT, I don't know just how unpopular this really is but I have not liked the past few incarnations of TMNT tv shows. As far as I'm concerned the first animated show was the best and only true TMNT show.
No one can remake TMNT. TMNT was one of the first adult-ish cartoons, IMO. The only reason they keep bringing them back is because they are one of the few things that can be marketed to boys past the age of 8. That's my UO and I'm sticking with it. Superheroes are babyish (according to my resident 8 year old boy). The only superhero he will admit to liking is Spider-man and even then, he's more into the villains. Transformers (also an 80s bring back) are "boring" unless your kid is willing to invest some time in getting to know them...which mine isn't and never will be. Star Wars...only the original please. None of this Star Wars lego bullshit. Cars is for pre-schoolers...so what's left? TMNT.
TMNT was always meant to be borderline lewd and crude. Rough around the edges. Gritty. April was kind of sexy. Shredder was kind of creepy. The Turtles had too much fun, they were basically teenage boys in turtle form. Now imagine trying to do them justice on say, Nicklodeon of today?? NOT gonna happen. Maybe on the pre-Adult Swim block on CN alongside Adventure Time...but any show on Nicklodeon or Disney or ABC Fam is not allowed to be that gritty and un-PC in today's world.
And I just have to include this song
....if they do bring the show back, can this please be the theme song??
I still like Clarissa Explains It All. When The 90s Are All That began rerunning the show last summer on TeenNick, I was FLOORED at how many people said they hated it/thought it was boring on Facebook.
I think that people watching CEIA now probably don't get it. Just like people don't get Beavis and Butthead or Daria or a lot of the other kids shows of the 90s. Younger people don't get it because they've always had 50 Disney channels + Nick + The N + ABC Fam and all of these other channels that produced TONS of shows geared towards their demos. They have no idea what it was like to have to stay up late to see shows like CEIA, Are You Afraid?, All That, and the other good stuff on Nick. Older people are nostalgic over stuff like 30something (not a bad show) or Friends (ok) or My So-Called Life (meh). If any of them did watch the silly teen stuff like CEIA, they are not going to admit it...because they probably didn't get it.
That being said, Clarissa is a bit dated. Just like Daria and the boys seem kind of empty without their MTV approved music filler. And seriously, what happened to "GUTS" and "Legends of the Hidden Temple"?? Sad sad. My UO is that Nick's 90s kids gameshows were waay better than the 88 episodes of Spongebob they show now.
