| (updated 12/1/14) Welcome to the winter doldrums. Most of the month is going to be quite predictable. And, as of now, no scheduling of any PR Christmas-themed episode.|
Only thing to note is that the Sunday morning airings on Nick are moving a half-hour earlier to 7:30, beginning this Sunday (Dec. 7). The next Sunday, they add an 8 a.m. slot.
The primary lookout will now be for a premiere date for Dino Charge. Should be in February, but that much is still yet to be verified. An early hunch has me leaning toward Feb. 7 or 14 -- but I reserve the right to change my mind. Often.
Still limping toward updated stats, schedules and UPRS entries. It'll get done!
We're about two months away from the dawn of Power Rangers Dino Charge. And, if you know Sentai, you can tell that it's an adaptation of Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger and that they've probably done an out-right skip of the Sentai season that was between Gokaiger and Kyoryuger -- Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
We got the first look at the Dino Charge cast at PMC4 in August. Here's their introduction, courtesy of Fury Diamond of Rangercrew:
And, at the conclusion of the Super Megaforce finale, we got the first trailer for PRDC (again courtesy Fury Diamond):
Two noteworthy items there -- it's the first preview to be shown at the end of a finale since PROO-into-PRJF, and the first to include the new PR cast since Mystic Force.
But if that wasn't enough, Bandai released the new PRDC app for smartphones and it gave us the first earful of the Dino Charge THEME! (this one courtesy cupofwater03 and Morphin' Legacy):
This section stays on the main page because PMC is the epicenter of the fandom experience, even when it happens every other year. And that won't change. It's locked in -- Power Morphicon 5 IS ON FOR 2016! Two ideas: 1) Alpha 5 should be part of the artwork identity of PMC5 (Aye aye aye!) and 2) Since 2016 is also the year for the MMPR reboot movie, there should be some sort of major tie-in with PMC5. The ultimate would be to have PMC in July (yeah, a month earlier) and have the actual World Premiere of the movie be associated with the 'con. That's a high bar to set, but it doesn't hurt to go for something big.
The Power Rangers 20th Anniversary celebration is in its last stages as Super Megaforce -- and all the homages to past rangers and past seasons -- has reached its conclusion.
It harkened back to many PR memories -- sure, we all wish there were many, many more -- and brought back a dozen former rangers for one more go-round in spandex. All the characters -- from Adam to Zurgane -- have helped keep us aware that good always prevails! Go Go Power Rangers!
It's an exciting thing to be part of Saban's Power Force, an official group of fans who help promote the show. If I can help the franchise in any way, I'm more than happy to do so. I've known the efforts of many of these people for years and became aware of others as a result of being in this group. Then, got a chance to meet a good many of them at Power Morphicon 3. Here's the page listing everyone: Power Force. We each have a different approach and address a different niche of the PR fandom. It's a cool thing to be a part of and I, like the others, will help make PR20 the best it can be.
On August 18, nine new members of the Power Force were announced. I'll let Nightmere (@nightmere10 on Twitter) have the honors of introducing them (since repeating that info here would be duplication of effort!) -- Power Force Newest Members .
To see the contributions of each of the Power Force members, click here for a page of links to their sites, blogs, etc. Everything PR is covered there. Fury Diamond already has this updated with the nine new members.
Follow me and get PR-related news on Twitter. When important Rangers-On-TV news lands in my lap, that will be the first place I post it. The address is pretty simple: www.twitter.com/BurgundyRanger. Click the logo to go there.
I also have a Facebook page -- but don't really plan to use it all that much. (Too much work!) Click the logo below in the Links section. It's there so I can, if needed, friend people and like companies to have access to their news. If you want to friend me, I won't mind. Just don't expect much activity!
