Dwyane Wade is still taking his player option for $23.8 million next season, according to sources. The Jimmy Butler trade affects nothing



I did not think it was possible for it to be worse than Goseiger.

It somehow manages to do so.

Good god, all I got out of that was "Power of Friendship, gently caress yeah!" I don't recall the earlier seasons being so preachy about friendship, just teamwork.

Still, is it worse than Turbo? I recall that getting pretty cringeworthy at times, and I only watched that a few months ago.

I would rather watch Turbo than any show post-SPD (excluding RPM).

This is still better than Samurai, I guess...?

The cast is better than Samurai by far. The only person that's been terrible is that Austin St. John imitation from Season 2 Troy.

The pacing is bad though. Gosei's been reduced to nothing more than "Oh, by the way, here's some Zords." Even the comic relief has had more airtime. The villains are also pretty generic and brooding.

I'm actually really excited to see what the American adaptation of the Great Legend War is. Anyone notice that in Troy's dream in Episode 4, you could clearly see the Red Dairanger? I wonder if they're gonna incorporate some previously-Japanese-only Sentai into the american Great Legend War, or if it was just a mistake.

Very likely a mistake, there was sporadic leaving in of teams in a bunch of shots and it looks more like editing errors than anything planned. The Dairangers didn't really get a focus episode in Gokaiger if I remember correctly so its not even like they have much of the footage left to use. Add in the fact that they'll probably only have 26 episodes to do the whole show and I'd count out expecting any new teams to be added.

Episode 33 of Gokaiger was a Dairanger tribute. The red Dairanger was the appearing legend, and it was the one where the monster eats Gai's morpher and he has a crisis about how he's useless because he can't transform.

You don't, they did get a tribute. Every series after but not including Zyuranger did (if you count the team-up movie as a Goseiger tribute), and so did Liveman and Jetman. J.A.K.Q. also got an episode that was all but a tribute.

Also FivePink is in the first Legend War dream sequence for a split second, because Saban cheaped out and didn't loving get new footage like the hype said they would, further confirming the current iteration of Power Rangers as a cheap knockoff of the respective Super Sentai season, with no distinctive identity. Just Americanized Super Sentai, that's it.

A tribute episode requires a full team Gokai Change, which didn't happen in that episode.

I could've sworn we got at least a couple seconds of new footage when he had the dream in ep 1. I remember somebody on some forums saying that. Guess we'll wait and see.

Says who? I've seen that ep listed as Zyuranger by multiple people and, going by your standards the Battle Fever episode counts (Battle Kenya shows up at the very end and never meets the Zyurangers) but Zyuranger doesn't because they did a group change. Thats a foolish way to divide the episodes.

Also, related to Hulu, I just noticed that on their big banner image on the Megaforce page, you can see Gosei Knight reflected in Red's visor. I guess they're really not trying to keep it a secret (from new american watchers) what the 6th member looks like

Gosei Knight appears very obviously in the legend war scene in episode 1. If that isn't a give away to new viewers then I don't know what is.

That's because they were a limited run TRU exclusive during the month of February. You can pre-order them on the website for when they come out in May.

Right now, I'm debating whether I want to get a Legacy Megazord or not since I have an MMPR Megazord already.

I got the one from the HD season reissue, isn't that pretty much the same thing as the forthcoming one but with different paint apps?

Also goddammit I really want that morpher but I already overpaid for that Masterpiece Prime that was theoretically on shelves back in December

Its a cool looking Morpher, but its not $60 worth of cool, I would've gotten it at $40 but that seems like too much.

I'll save my money for the MMPR SH Figuarts coming out later this year.

It was a bunch of cuts to people reacting to bad rock music being broadcasted around the world, but the people reacting to it were examples like African kids standing outside huts, people wearing turbans by pyramids, and people at a cafe in front of the Eiffel Tower.

I just check out the original episode (Ep. 4 in the Goseiger run, but last week was based on episode 9.) and the Africa segment was a replacement while the London was new. Not having seen the original until now, I could only sit there during the sequence and .
