So the thing this missed for me was lack of nostalgia in Forever Red Bulk and Skull set up that aspect. They didn't have role players i this team-up had no role players tos et things up, instead they had references that were really out of place. In Forever Red they had a set of the recruiting I woulda loved to see that. Go to the Previous Rangers current setting and SK appears like youa re needed back in action and they drop everything and leave. It also lack a true Red Ranger as in a Ranger who wore Red that we got use to in Red. The Character of Bridge is kool but I only know him as a Green Ranger never seen him in Blue so that wouldn't have worked. Hell I didn't care for Connor but he woulda done it for me. I want this redone and redone correctly

I enjoyed both parts of the show, but I would've preferred if they had done a Gaoranger vs Super sentai... where the current rangers were taught lessons from the veteran rangers.

My fave part... After the fight in Angel Grove, Adam says "It may be Old School, but it gets the job done":o

:023: Greatest Power Ranger line ever!!!:D

WHY would Alpha mention Zordon if he worked with Dimitria.
?!?!?!?!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Zordon probably knows more about the morphing grid, and Alpha 6 has probably met Zordon.

Now, I've expressed my thougts for one. Here's my thoughts for two...

Overall, I liked it. Somewhat. Even during a team-up, they managed to fit in some kind of screen time for the current team, and some of the "What are they doing now?" scenes were somewhat entertaining (except for Will and Tyzonn's. Will was doing the same shit he always did, and Tyzonn...where the FUCK was he going to go? Take a shit in the woods?).

The new morph sequences were really interesting, as I enjoyed the update for Adam's morph (Bridge's morph was essentially just a redo of the original). Refresh my memory, did Adam say "Mastadon" at all?

The way they killed off the monsters, however, was fucking stupid. I actually saw Tasks 29 and 30 for the first time today, so I have that sour "Ugh, how lame" taste in my mouth. But even if, it was anti-climactic and way too rushed when Mack killed Ultrarous. Or however you spell it.

It was interesting to see the Alumni Rangers in the Ultimate Dai...I mean, yeah, I've been saying "Ultimate DaiBouken" too much that I forgot the OO name for it. Simply put, it was nice to see them in those cockpits. Nice how they redid those too.

Alpha 6...ugh.

Thrax's death was a little quick and...simply put, "ehh". The entire fight in general was quite nice though. Adam using the Power Axe (and saying it), coupled with Xander using those gloves was fucking sweet. Same with Rose and Tori, as they're both water-based, despite the color change.

Anyone else think that Tyzonn fighting alone is a little unfair? Just a thought. He could have fought with Adam?

I'm still saddened they never used the original MMPR theme, but it was still nice to see them use the others during the fight in Angel Grove. And, holy shit balls they went into Angel Grove. Even if you couldn't tell, it was kinda neat. But I don't understand why someone thought putting Alpha 6 in a warehouse with a lightning bolt for a label was a good idea.

'sides, isn't Alpha 6 reaching up Cerina Vincent in Mirinoi?

All in all, it was a decent team-up. Unlike Forever Red, they didn't ignore the main villains, and unlike other team-ups, they weren't there just for fanwank. Hear me out..

Despite doing a poor job with it, they still managed to let/try to make you feel whatever sadness or emotion the OO Rangers had, even if it lasted for thirty seconds. They tried to put in some development with the OO Rangers, and though they sucked at it, it was nice they tried.

It's a solid 4 out of 5.

BTW, Spencer giving Bridge toast = win

Zordon is more iconic than Dimitria.

Sunfire Ranger
07-23-2007, 09:34 PM
Now how did he get to Earth when he was last seen on Mirinoi with the Galaxy Rangers. And even if he made it to Earth somehow and with a purpose, WHY THE HELL was he stored away in some box in a storage place in Angel Grove. what storage place was that??

Maybe the Galaxy Rangers shipped Alpha 6 to Adam, because Adam wanted him back or something? I don't know. Good question.



WHY would Alpha mention Zordon if he worked with Dimitria.
?!?!?!?!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

The best explanations that I can think of are:

1. Alpha 6 at some point met Zordon.

OR

2. Alpha 6 heard so many great things about Zordon.

Forever Red was awesome because it wasn't all about the "current" team like this one was. The OO rangers should have been shoved to the background....nobody gives a fuck about them or their shitty season.

I really like these two episodes.
It was great to see the other five rangers again especially Adam and Alpha.
I liked Adam's & Bridge's new morphing sequence.
I didn't like Alpha's voice or that it was just two episodes.
Oh and they left out Kira and Tori love scene.

What's wrong with megaupload? It seems to be one of the better file hosts.

Couldn't Alpha 6 have inherited some or all of Alpha 5's memory banks?

Also, remember the old Command Center's basement had a box with an old Alpha in it?
-----------

As for the warehouse, I theorize that Adam and possibly other old Rangers keep mementos and equipment from the "old days" there.

Who has the Zeo crystal, anyway?...I would've liked to see a Zeo Ranger in there...possibly JDF or Cat.

I wouldn't be surprised if Andros put Alpha in that box... first he killed Zordon, now he's locking poor defensless robots in boxes. :shame:

Makes me think of JDF's poor attempt at an evil laugh as he calls Alpha 5 "robot" and changes him to be an evil prankster, who draws a funny "face" onto Zordon.

well lol I was planing on encoding the teamup, I was encoding part1 and I got a no stats file found error from vdub but I think I fixed it now.
Id like feedback on that clips quality. And Im sure there is others who can get the encode up.
Also I wouldnt mind to make more clips if anyone else had a request I guess.
Also if someone from our talented avatar squad could use my morph video to make me a Tori ava would be cool

I have to give props to the voice actor, he sounded a tiny bit like the original, but then he kept going off. It was great seeing Alpha again though.

Anyone know if that's the same suit on eBay (the one that was at PMC). I assume not because the one in OO looked spanking brand new.

It looked new to me also although it looked to me seemed that it was same old suit cuz of the design. Ahh the memories...

Plus I think the suit actor who played as Alpha Six was taller than the original Alphas
