Somehow, I woke up quite early and I could find nothing to watch on TV. Luckily, I had my recently-completed Power Rangers S.P.D. “Wormhole” VCD to watch. Yay. I liked this episode.. though it did still focus a lot on S.P.D. even though it had the Dino Thunder rangers there. And the story was a bit too.. “packed” into a single episode. 😦 As revealed in the episode itself, this seems to be a second part to the SPD / DT teamup, with the DT Rangers heading to the future previously (but their minds were erased before being returned). Heh. It would be neat if that rock that showed Ethan and Kira the future (in “The Hidden Episode”) actually sent them into the future (and later the other Rangers). >:) It didn’t sound like they met the Black Ranger in that episode though (who is voiced by someone other than JDF pretty well here.. yet someone else was too lame to even place him in the closing credits — I eventually discovered that Jeffery Parazzo voiced Tommy in-suit).. Anyway, Gruumm takes advantage of a wormhole in space and goes to conquer Earth in 2004, but it didn’t sound like he expected the DT Rangers to be there. Soon, the entire SPD team follows him into 2004 and a huge battle erupts. I liked the part where the three lady rangers took down a monster all on their own. And the Orangehead using weapons that looked like altered forms of some Time Force weapons. :p The “no one gets inside our circle” bit was kinda cheesy though. Gruumm is being controlled in this episode by some higher force.. that’s heading to Earth following this episode. Awesome. You also notice that Morgana’s gone and returned to the child-form Mora, and that Broodwing is nowhere to be seen either. Also, Kat has a new uniform.. and what looked to me like new eyes.. *shrug* At the end, when Gruumm defeatedly departs through a now-closing wormhole, Cruger erases everyone’s minds (including his own) so they’ll never remember this meeting.. as a little sad-sounding music plays. 😦 One more note: lol @ the credits guy still misspelling Conner as “Connor”. :p Can’t wait to see these teamup episode(s) aired officially in September or October. 🙂
I find it kinda funny how some thought my recent snobbery about the Saban eras of Power Rangers being better than the current Disney era (which it is) means that I didn’t even like Space. That was most likely my favorite season from the Saban eras. :p I’m just not liking this third era that Disney has created so far. I’m glad I didn’t expect much from S.P.D., because in all, that’s what we’ve been getting so far. The more recent episodes have shown improvement though. Looking ahead a bit into Magiranger, I’m already not expecting much from Mystic Force either. You better redo that horrible megazord cockpit next year, you cheap Disney bastards. 😡
Now, to go and be bored until the newspaper arrives..
Okay, so it wasn’t boring. I decided to watch last night’s episode of Samurai Champloo. At first, when I found out this would be a “clip show”, I didn’t like it. But Mugen’s little comments were so funny. Nice episode. 🙂 Then the newspaper arrived and I looked through the ads for this coming week. The big check won’t arrive in time for Tuesday, so I may have to wait until Wednesday afternoon.. I watched last night’s awesome episode of Paranoia Agent, then found Honey on one of the Encore channels and watched that most of the way though. Nice movie. Almost regret passing on the DVD a while back. Almost. :p We had breakfast during that.. After that, I put in another MST3k DVD: “The Hellcats”. Man, was that a bad one. It was little easier to sit through with the jokes though. 🙂 My dad left to pick up a few more things with his few remaining dollars and returned in time for the end. In retaliation, my dad took over the TV right away in search of his own crappy movie to enjoy. *sigh* So I escaped to my room..
Here’s a little thing that’s kinda neat. Power Rangers S.P.D.‘s Brandon Jay McLaren has signed on under (Dino Thunder‘s) Emma Lahana’s name at RangerBoard (since they’re going out in real life.. lucky bastard) and asked for help on downloading the leaked S.P.D. episode, “Wormhole”. Teehee. :p
I stayed online for quite a few hours. Then around 3:30PM, I finally got bored of that and read a couple more chapters of Harry Potter 6. 🙂 Soon after I was done, we had another barely supper and watched some movie my dad found on Lifetime: The Dive From Clausen’s Pier, starring Michelle Trachtenberg as a shallow bitch who leaves his newly-quadriplegic boyfriend for a guy much older than her with only mental problems. 😦 Anyway, there was a commercial for Fighting the Odds: The Marilyn Gambrell Story, a new (very Dangerous Minds-ish looking) movie premiering on Lifetime August 22nd. And it looked like Power Rangers Ninja Storm‘s own Navy Thunder Ranger Jorgito Vargas Jr. plays the role of a student in the film as well..
I watched the rest of that movie. Then we watched America’s Funniest Videos over on ABC. Funny stuff.. Then my dad headed outside and I headed over to USA to watch / tape the new episode of The 4400. Awesome episode. I wasn’t that interested in the main “4400-of-the-week” story, but the continuing storylines surrounding it got more interesting. I wasn’t expecting that ending. Can’t wait for next week’s episode. I also can’t believe the season finale is ahead in August already. 😦 Since there was nothing better to watch for the rest of the night, I took the time to read another exciting chapter of Harry Potter 6. 🙂 Unfortunately, it ended at a point where I wanted to read more.. but didn’t have the time.. 😦
Man, am I looking forward to this week. Money. For my media. To keep me sane. And this week, I’ll have to pick up a few things from past weeks that I couldn’t afford at that point.. This weekend was alright. Except for the boredom. I’m also somewhat glad to get this month over with.. I hope we go without a TV for as little time as possible tomorrow. I need me teevee. See ya.
