Another Power Rangers Guardians of Gaia Season 2 Preview

Lest you think I’m just sitting on my hands and doing nothing, I HAVE been working on Season 2 of GoG, I just have been working on the entire first few chapters at once, while also working on my blog and doing other things. But, for those that enjoyed Season 1 and are anxiously awaiting more content, here’s another preview of Season 2’s opening story arc, entitled ‘Always A Ranger’.


“We’re here,” Adam stated as the group came to a large warehouse. Opening the steel doors of the loading dock, he led everyone inside, where they found a number of people huddled about, looking a bit scared and disheveled.
“City’s inhabitants?” Nikki asked, getting a nod from Adam. “What happened?”
“I got here just after it happened,” Adam explained, leading the team through the large room of people. “The Blots came in and overran the city. The police couldn’t stop them, and the military’s still licking its wounds from the invasion, so-“
“Whoa, INVASION?” Dirk inquired, confused.
Adam scratched the back of his neck. “Yeah…You guys have missed a lot. Earth was invaded by an intergalactic Armada. There was a team of Rangers that managed to beat them back, but the overall forces were so large that it took every last Power Ranger to finally stop them.”
“Aw man, and we missed it?!” Madilyn whined, getting odd looks. “…What? I wanted to fight alongside the other Power Rangers too!”
“Point is, we were still working to get past that, and when this happened, most of us were caught off-guard,” Adam continued as the group made their way to a door labelled ‘Front Office’. “Fortunately, after the war, a few of us veteran Rangers decided to stay in contact in case anything like this should happen again.”
Opening the door the group of seven walked in to find that the front office of the warehouse had been converted into a command center. Standing at different stations were an Asian man in a military-like blue uniform with a red beret, a blonde woman in a blue and black ninja-esque outfit, a brunette in a yellow hoodie and blue jeans, a somewhat shaggy man with brown hair in a purple and black gi, a young woman with dark hair in a white lab coat over an academy uniform of some sort, and a young Asian woman in a black and pink gi. They all looked up curiously to see the Gaia Rangers enter.
“Everyone, we’ve got some new friends,” Adam announced. “These are Nikki, Patrick, Layla, Dirk, Madilyn, and Drayden, the Gaia Rangers. Gaia Rangers, these are Eric, Tori, Kira, RJ, Doctor K, and Mia.”
“So, I hope you’re about to tell us these guys know more about what’s going on?” Eric asked, walking up to the team.
“We may have been operating on the parallel world they’ve been coming from for the better part of a year, yes,” Dirk replied.
“Finally, some good news,” Doctor K said. “Speaking of which, I’ve been trying to upgrade what surveillance we have in the city. It’s coming along slowly, but that’s to be expected with the low tech available to us.”
“Here, let me see if I can help with that,” Layla offered, reaching a hand out.
“…I’d shake your hand, but I’m told that I’m horribly anti-social,” Doctor K replied. “Also, I’m not even really here. I’m transmitting my physical parameters from my location on a parallel Earth.”
Layla’s eyes perked excitedly. “Wow, really? How’d you manage to send a broadcast through the dimensional barriers?”
“The barriers run on unique energy signatures, like radio waves,” Doctor K explained with a shrug. “Once you’ve figured out each one, it’s just as simple as tuning to match it. Took weeks to figure this one’s out, but who needs sleep when you have the unrestrained power of a sugar rush?”
“Y’know, that approach might help with tracking the Blots,” Layla realized. “Can I see your computer?”
Doctor K nodded, leading Layla to it as the others watched slack-jawed, Dirk finally piping up “…Oh dear God, there’s two of them.”

So, let’s talk a bit about the team presented here and why I chose some of them. Adam, Kira, and Tori were all chosen because they’d previously worked on a team like this and thus knew each other fairly well, making them easier to gel as a team. From there, though, it was a matter of choosing Rangers confirmed to still have their powers and would round each other out well, not only in terms of powers but in terms of getting more characters from various points in PR’s history. I mean, there’s a larger presence on the team that’s from the Disney Era, but it’s a bit more spread out. Eric seemed like an obvious choice, both in being the only member of the team from the post-Zordon Saban Era, as well as being both a sixth Ranger that could fill in the Red Ranger position on the team. Plus, as someone who has led the Silver Guardians, he fits well as Adam’s second-in-command. RJ was likewise an option that made immediate sense in my head, both for having martial arts experience that even Adam hasn’t grasped and for being the first Purple Ranger in PR history. In addition, he also has a purpose from a story perspective, but we’ll get to that later. From there, all that was left was to choose a Pink Ranger, and I felt as though I should really have someone from the Neo Saban Era, my own personal feelings on it aside. And, since these Rangers are all members of teams prior to Megaforce, Mia is the only real option, though she does bring plenty to the team that’s unique to herself with her samurai skills and Symbol Power. Finally, because I just couldn’t resist (and really, how could you blame me?), I decided to have Doctor K be the team’s technical support. Hell, I’m honestly even considering having her pop in from time to time even after this, though I suppose I shouldn’t be pushing the idea too much.

Anyway, I’m hoping to have this done for the beginning of this Fall, if not sooner. When it’s done, I’ll be sure to post a notice here on my blog. Until then, though, lemme know what you think about how this is shaping up thus far. Also, I have a question: Would you like to see all of Always A Ranger posted at the same time, or would you prefer to have each chapter posted when each is done? Let me know, and I’ll see what I can do either way. Ja né!

Jyger’s Favourite 5 – 5 Most Surreal Moments in Power Rangers

So I was thinking recently about surreal moments in Power Rangers. Basically, the moments where your eyes widened and jaw hanged low and you just went “…Did I really just see that?!” Now, of course, this is simply opinion-based, and you’re all free to leave your own list at the bottom. Also, gonna try to keep this limited to one moment per season, otherwise we’d be seeing a LOT of the same people on here over and over…In fact, as it is, there’s still at least one guy involved in more than one of these. lol And finally, as usual, this is not in order of personal preference, though I will be trying to put them in chronological order.

#1 – Kimberly’s Rita Impression in MMPR Season 2: Beauty and the Beast

…Okay, this one I’m gonna show footage of, because it’s just…WOW.

How much fun do you figure Amy Jo Johnson had to be having in this scene? Also, you gotta imagine Barbara Goodson was having a lot of fun watching it.

#2 – The Command Center exploding in MMPR Season 3: Hogday Afternoon

I should note that another MAJOR surreal moment in this season was Master Vile‘s End of the World party, but I opted to go with this one instead, simply for the massive emotional whiplash involved. The Rangers had just been returned to their proper age after spending several episodes as children, the Alien Rangers had just left Earth after defeating their greatest foe, and the Zeo Crystal had been reformed and was going to be used to return the Rangers’ powers. So what ends up happening? Rito and Goldar sneak in, steal the Crystal, and blow up the Command Center, seemingly with Zordon and Alpha inside. So what should’ve been the Rangers’ greatest victory is now their biggest defeat. It wasn’t until the first episode of Power Rangers Zeo that we saw it all get turned around in their favour again, and until then, we were left with the horrific thought of the Power Rangers without power, Zordon and Alpha dead, and Rita and Zedd in prime position to take over the Earth. SHOCKING.

#3 – The Turbo Rangers get baked into a giant pizza in Power Rangers Turbo: Trouble By The Slice

…..Y’know, this entire season, we’ve had Bulk and Skull turned in monkeys, main characters shuffled off with little to no recognition for their earlier endeavors on the show, four fifths of the titular characters swapped out, and now the Rangers get baked into a giant pizza! Now, I still stand by my statement that the Turbo movie was worse than the ensuing season, but the primary reason for it is because it was pretty much the starting point for all this crap. Plus, they weren’t using Sentai footage, so they couldn’t blame any of what happened in it on that…which, by the way, I will concede that this scene DID happen in Carranger, but for the love of crap, there was nothing that said they HAD to use this.

#4 – Every single thing that Lothor did in Power Rangers Ninja Storm

This guy gives me a frakking headache the size of which even Rita Repulsa would think was insane. Between this and the Ninja Storm drinking game (take a shot everytime someone says ‘dude’), it’s a mystery how Ninja Storm didn’t kill people who watched it. Again, I feel the need to point out a major runner-up, the time that Shane rode on Dustin’s back like a skateboard for a double-attack. However, as bizarre as that is, it pales in comparison to the bizarre activities of Lothor, AKA the man who would’ve been the worst villain in PR history if not for the existence of Divatox.

#5 – Tommy kicks a t-rex in the face in Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Day of the Dino

………….Just show it. -_-

No, I will NEVER get over this! Not only does Tommy spin-kick a mother fuckin’ t-rex, but he actually manages to get away with it! If this was Jurassic Park, that t-rex woulda eaten his ass! Seriously, what would the t-rex from that movie say to this one?

“Dude, really? You got pwned by one guy? What, did he have a grenade launcher?…He SPIN-KICKED you in the face?! Okay, unless he was Chuck Norris, I……Oh. JDF…….*sighs* Okay, nevermind…”

Anyway, those were the 5 Most Surreal Moments in Power Rangers. Leave your own list below, and I shall see y’all later! Ja né!
