    I'll stomach parts of Turbo if I at least see the last five or so episodes when Divatox actually does the unthinkable and hands the Rangers their asses.

    Turbo is fucking terrible until the series finale that leads directly into In Space.

    Operation Overdrive isn't terrible so much as it is mediocre and has to followup the godlike Lightspeed Rescue.

    Carter still the best Red Ranger not named Tommy.

    I keep reading that Operation Overdrive is also garbage, but at least won't come until next week

    Operation Overdrive is garbage tier Power Rangers. You'd be better off watching Boukenger (which is pretty good) at TV-Nihon.

    PVL, Turbo isn't short at all. It's one of the longest seasons actually. It just seems short in comparison to the previous 4.

    Operation Overdrive is nowhere near Lightspeed Rescue, both in quality...and in timeline, OO is like 8 seasons after LR. Also Lightspeed Rescue isn't godlike at all, it's carried from mediocrity itself by Carter but he only raises it to average quality.

    Shit, was it really 8 seasons between the two? Makes sense, I haven't followed PR closely since In Space ended, only occasionally catching eps of Lost Galaxy and Lightspeed Rescue when they were on.

    Tracy Lynn Cruz fans should start tuning in since she just popped up about an episode or 2 ago. Also, I think the upskirt shot on her I remember is the first couple of episodes into In Space....it was a sitting-down shot if I recall.

    A former Power Rangers star is going to prison for murder: https://www.thestar.com/entertainment/television/2017/03/17/former-power-rangers-actor-pleads-guilty-to-killing-roommate-with-sword.html
    LANCASTER, CALIF.—A former Power Rangers TV actor has pleaded guilty to killing his roommate, who was stabbed to death with a sword.

    Thirty-eight-year-old Ricardo Medina entered a plea Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court to voluntary manslaughter with the use of a sword. He faces six years in state prison.

    Prosecutors say Medina stabbed Joshua Sutter several times in the abdomen two years ago at their house in Green Valley, a mountain town north of Los Angeles.

    The two had argued over Medina’s girlfriend.

    Medina played the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger on Power Rangers Wild Force in 2002. He was the voice of Deker on Power Rangers Samurai in 2011 and 2012.

    Old School: Jetman (Series directly before Zyu; people die.), Zyuranger (MMPR), Dairanger (MMPR2), Kakuranger (MMPR3), Ohranger (Zeo, my fave.)
    Mid School: Timeranger (Time Force), Hurricanger (Ninja Storm), Abaranger (Dino Thunder), Dekaranger (S.P.D)
    New School: Gekiranger (Jungle Fury), Shinkenger (Samurai), Go-Busters

    Dairanger and Kakuranger are awesome and probably better than their American counterparts by far. Hurricanger, Abaranger, Dekaranger are incredibly better than their US versions. Gekiranger and Shinkenger are absolutely amazing compared to the western series. Timeranger, Ohranger, and of course Zyuranger go pound-for-pound with their Saban shows. Go-Busters is pretty good but will never come to America but is worth a watch. Jetman is funky old-school Gatchaman-esque holy ground; and people die.

    To me those are the must see series; the others can go either way imho.

    EDIT: Megaranger is good too but it's one of the rare cases where the US version is all you really need. In Space = GOAT.

    Sadly, I missed the actual moment of the infamous Ashley upskirt yesterday. I was even here and ready to see it but just happened to be looking away at the time, and yes this is one of the reasons I was tuning in for this particular era of the marathon, though In Space is generally the best era/season for other reasons. Whatever, I still have that moment recorded anyway. (*it's the very first episode dealing with Psycho Rangers...she turns towards the camera while wearing the blue/white miniskirt, and yellow panties [or small biking shorts, most likely] are plainly visible...right there in your face. It's absolutely delicious.)

    I think after Lost Galaxy---is Lightspeed Rescue? At least that season has Ms. Fairweather.

    I sat through 2 episodes of Ninja Steel. The only redeeming part is the Pink Ranger, completely adorable as a white girl.

    How is it that the shows format lasts for so many iterations without the youth being bored?

    sheeeeit, I forgot all about Trakeena (Amy Miller) until seeing her again just now...definitely one of the hot villains. In real life she hooked up with Reggie Rolle, who was the Green Ranger at the time.

    and on another note-- Karone is wearing the HELL out of this tight leather outfit :sweat:

    Well she had chosen leather even before getting the pure brainwashing. Have to consider that she just likes leather to begin with.

    Don't know why she would owe him money. He taught her martial arts for the show and inspired her to audition.

    Work prevents me from watching the marathon as much as I want to but thankfully the weekend fell right on In Space. The show has aged incredibly well from top to bottom (sadly I overslept and missed the Next Mutation crew crossover. I would have loved to see the chat's reaction to that). I have the series' box set as well and could watch that show over and over.
