    Power Rangers (seasons one through five)

    You know, I loved the Power Rangers. I probably still watched it a little too long after I should've for my age, though. I would tape each episode in the morning because I could only watch the first few minutes before I had to go to school, and I would watch the episode after I got home. I saw the first two movies in theaters, too, which is something for me since I rarely had the chance to go to the cinema as a kid. I even bought (or rather, had bought for me) the two Super Nintendo games.

    I was super into that show though. I didn't stop watching until after the Turbo movie, when the villain lady kept making monsters that were always some form of bomb with the intent of just blowing stuff up. It just got really dumb. I was always hoping Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd would come back as villains. They kept teasing that a couple of times, but it never materialized. I know the show was just there to sell toys, but I loved it anyway. I can still remember all of the original Power Rangers actors' and characters' names by heart.

    I'm glad to see someone else who liked them too. I didn't put that show on my list, but there are a lot of shows I watched as a kid that I didn't... I'll go over a few now... Did you or anyone else watch these, too?

    I pretty much watched all those shows. Some to more varying degrees than others.
    As for Power Rangers, I actually watched well past season 5, probably up to season 7. By that time, I was in high school. It was never really about being too old, but more so Disney getting a hold of the franchise and it just became a generic kids show (although 2 or 3 out of Disney's 8 seasons is somewhat decent) that I stopped. If you have Netflix (which has every season), I would at recommend at least checking out the season after Turbo, In Space. It was originally supposed to be the final season and the entire season is just one big thank you to the fans. The ratings spiked up so high, its was decided to continue the show (with Lost Galaxy being the next one). I would also check out Dino Thunder as that is the one where Tommy returns as a ranger (full time)

    I really don't watch much TV. The news mostly. I did recently discover a channel in Chicago (WWME) that has a lot of really old reruns of shows that I watched growing up and when I watch them now they just seem silly There was one show I liked growing up that I can still watch today on WWME is, "The Wild Wild West". It's still a great show today!

    I'll probably watch the show again sometime soon when I have enough free time. Tommy was my favorite when I was a kid, but shortly after I watched the show I started hearing things about how Jason David Frank was really rude to David Yost (Billy). There's even a video on YouTube of him calling David "Gayvid" where Thuy Trang (RIP) tells him to back off or something like that. I think they're okay with each other now as adults, but from the cons I think they might still play pranks on each other. Jason David Frank was pretty known for that on the set from interviews I've read/seen. So while I was always aware that Tommy returned for Dino Thunder, I never had the inclination to watch it.

    Oh I've heard the stories about JDF. While I try not to judge anyone I don't know personally, I would be lying if I said the stories haven't sullied my enjoyment of Tommy a bit.

    I find network tv to be too rreactionary and impatient. The networks would be filled so many great shows if they just gave them a chance grow or scheduled them correctly

    I was talking to my boy about these shows earlier today while we were looking at movies to watch and we saw "The Goonies", being both our favorite.

    He recently watched every episode of "Are you afraid of the dark" at work. Yeah... his job is easy. Lol.

    I know its a silly thing to mention, but I wish The Vampire Diaries didn't have that "girly" stigma attached to it. Sure, it might have started out that way and the books might be geared toward girls. But its a really well done show that most guys would love if given the chance.

    I swear I didn't have a clue about any of those shows until Tony (above) mentioned TVD stands for The Vampire Diaries. Regardless, I haven't seen it nor know what the other shows are about.

    Most of them are from ABC Family and CW. There's a hint, haha. I just shortened most of them.
