Excuse me but am I the only one who had no idea that Grant McFarland (Lothor/Sensei) passed away too?

Pua to many was the ASJ of PR for them. He was the guy, THE Original Red Ranger of the Disney era. He was many people's first red ranger and he left an impact on many. While NS isn't one of my all time faves, everyone on there made the season fun to watch and Shane was a great example of having fun and being responsible, a great role model for kids.

Its really hard to process that this is even real. it feels like tomorrow he's gonna be at a con or something and everything will go back to normal. Has anyone set up a GoFundMe for his family? I'd gladly help chip in for them. I can only shudder to imagine what they must feel

Agreed. People who act like that actually exist? Geez.

Damn this is just heartbreaking to hear. Shane was and still is one of my top 10 Red Rangers of all time and Pua just brought him to life in such a unique and special way. Man this sucks but it is what it is. RIP Pua may you join the others before you in Ernies Juice Bar in the sky and swap some great stories with them.

Whoa, wait, 71? That means he was 63 when he played Daisuke in Samurai? Wow.

Definitely the best comedic actor the New Zealand era of PR has ever had.

Damn. This is so sad. First Alvin Sargent, Pua, and now Grant. Talk about horrible. It's true what they say, death comes in threes. May there families heal through this pain.

Also, is it possible for the mods to put a Pua Ninja Storm design theme in his memory? It would be a nice way to honor him.

Misremenbering, probably, but I felt like I heard of his death last year on here or on a news feed. Huh.

Edit: remembered that I did random searches on PR this year and saw his death date.

Oh, no! Sad news about Grant McFarland. I had no idea he was in his seventies. A very tragic time for the PR family.

How did we not find out about this? What a shame.

I know the social media pages for the show are what they are. That said, both of them deserve a slate on an episode of Beast Morphers.

other sides like Reddit and 4chan(or 8chan....or whatever they're calling it these days)are miles worse.
I want to point out that Reddit should not be lumped into sites like 4chan (or 8chan, which is similar in concept of 4chan, but does have a more hateful user base than 4chan.).

Reddit does have their groups of specific users, but for the most part, when something becomes popular on the site, the positive users far outweigh the negative. And, there is at least some administration done at Reddit, unlike the *chans which are for the most part un-moderated, by design.

What a tragedy. Shane was always one of my favorite Red Rangers. And Grant was great as both Sensei and Lothor.

There should probably be a separate thread for Grant too.
