prs 10-12 or 12-14 titles & prs sched update / green lantern knights blu / lotr extended blu / today

March 22, 2011

Nickelodeon On Demand’s schedule for May has revealed the next three Power Rangers Samurai episode titles (beware, onward it gets a bit spoilery) — episode 110 or 2012: “Jayden’s Challenge”, episode 111 or 2013: “Unexpected Arrival” and episode 112 or 2014: “Room For One More”. The first number would be Nick’s airing order and the latter would be Saban’s production order. Steven Skyler tweeted that his character, the Gold Ranger, will debut in episode 13.. but it appears to be airing as episode 11. So Saban’s hinting about the origin perhaps being the 10th aired episode by typoing “All will be revealOed.” on their official twitter & facebook many times now means nothing?

I guess plans change..? Speaking of which.. Nickelodeon was planning a three-week break for Power Rangers Samurai after last Sunday’s episode, but now listings sites are being updated to say that the next new episode will actually air this coming Sunday, March 27th — “Forest For The Trees”. Due to this, the next episode, “Test Of The Leader”, has been moved up to the original return date of April 10th. I hope Nickelodeon still somehow pulls the premiere episodes out of the vault and airs them in April as the 10th & 11th episodes, but I’m no longer so sure about that. 😦

Warner Bros has set a June 7th release date for the next DC Universe Animated Movie, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. How about that? Another “Knight”-titled.. title.. before a similar DC theatrical film. Good timing.. The release of Batman: Gotham Knight coincided with The Dark Knight. :p And just like that one, this will be a series of stories. Definitely looking forward to both it and the theatrical Green Lantern. πŸ™‚

Finally, the huge Blu-ray boxed set most everyone has been waiting for — The Lord Of The Rings Motion Picture Trilogy: Extended Edition. The 15-disc set (that 5 discs covering each film) has an SRP of $119.98 and will be released on June 28th. It will feature all the bonus features presented on the original DVD releases and the Limited Editions.. as well as some trailer for an upcoming video game. The films will again be spread across two discs each to preserve the HD audio & video quality. I still have fond memories of watching the entire saga.. in six days, at one disc a day. May do that again. :p ..Don’t really care for the “Extended Edition, Extended Edition” on the cover art.. but I really hope I can afford this. It appears myself and many others have held off on buying the theatrical edition boxed set on Blu to get this release instead. πŸ™‚

I awoke in the morning and got online for a while, then watched some Conan (lol.. it’s been gone just a week.. but I missed it :p ). I fell asleep during it, then awoke a couple hours later and finished. Then I got online for awhile again.. that ended up taking most of the afternoon. Firefox 4 was released today, and I likes it. πŸ™‚ ..Later, I watched some unimportant things on the DVR.. then got back online again to news-gather way earlier than usual.

After all that was done, I got the PS3 online again. There were actually a couple things I was interested in getting out of PS Store’s new releases today. I was interested in getting the Ratchet & Clank costumes for LittleBigPlanet 2, but they’re $3. Regular price. I could get them anytime. However, I had been on the fence for a little while now about buying Tetris (PS3) for $10. But today (and for the following week), it’ll be on sale for just $5. So I booted up the demo I already had and unlocked the full game. The trophies are tough. Most of them are for the multiplayer mode. :/

At 8PM, I shut that off for a bit and watched No Ordinary Family (wow, very good episode this week.. two episodes left and not looking good for Season 2 😦 ..ABC just threw the next episode to Saturday 10PM, wtf? :/ ). I then went to PlayStation Home (level up in Aurora, faster, faster!) for a few hours.. before playing some more Tetris. And then I watched some Skins US (finale, yay.. not bad) and Conan (lol).

Yeah, I stayed up past 3AM. Everything’s upside down anymore. Nothing matters. I don’t go outside anymore, except a few feet to check the mail on some days. Getting tired of eating the same stuff everyday (so pizza yet again tomorrow, I guess). And the worse is.. I never took the chance to really talk to my dad in a very long time, and I fear I’ll never get to again. About life experiences, y’know.. before it all started going to hell..

Oh well. It seems we’re finally about to reach our destination now.. See ya.

Sunday 03.20.2011 — It’s Red vs Blue!, not that one..

March 20, 2011

I awoke in the morning and got online for a little while. And that turned into a little too long. Damnit.. I soon watched Bleach (eh, they copy the overlong battle thing from Dragon Ball Z.. but at least they don’t always make Ichigo like Goku, who decides the winning side all the time), Kekkaishi (hahaha, good episode) and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (awesome episode, wow πŸ™‚ ).

And soon after that, I watched both last week’s episode and today’s new episode of Power Rangers Samurai. I think that last week was still just a little better than this week. I’ve never liked Power Rangers copying sentai, at first probably due to the footage being all fuzzy ( :p ).. but now that I’ve grown up it’s more about the Japanese culture bits still being there.. in an American show. :/ Though I did like the White Tiger. It reminded me of MMPR’s White Tigerzord (of course). Man, if Jackie Marchand where still working on this show, she would’ve put some very short reference to this somehow being that zord.. even if it got the continuity-obsessed fans scratching their heads again. :p ..I couldn’t pay much attention to the new episode due to texts coming and going during it though. I’ll have to give an additional viewing sometime this week, I guess. *shrug*

And then I got online. All afternoon. All day long. Waiting and waiting for the Power Rangers Samurai encode. I had some movies and such to watch.. but oh well… again. :p And the encode never came this time. Oh well.. I spent some of the time waiting finally doing a huge collection of links at entry’s end. I missed getting the real news rather than the BS the mainstream spits out.. With everything else, it’s just difficult to find time to collect them. :/

In primetime, I watched Simpsons (though it was a rerun), Bob’s Burgers (this week, the family of huge worms gets fascinated by animal buttholes…? um.. okay..?), Family Guy (lol, this is definitely my favorite episode in a while, from the main plot.. and the mention of Passions.. really do miss that show, haha, and I never saw the DirecTV exclusive episodes), Cleveland Show (hahaha I guess.. well, the Family Guy cameo was good anyway :p) and Smameless (very good episode this week, wow.. Amy Smart, yum! ..and next week’s the finale already? 😦 ).

And that about it for another day………………… See ya.

Sunday 03.13.2011 — Deker, the cursed warrior… returns.

March 13, 2011

I awoke in the morning later than usual (probably due to daylight savings.. damnit!) and got online for a bit. And then I watched Bleach (man, Neliel is so hot– waitwtfaHORSE?! “Ichigo. Ichigo. Ichigo! Ichigo. Ichigo!” ..whatshisnameagain? “Ichigooo!!” Ohrightthanks.), Kekkaishi (heh, good episode) and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (great episode here.. cannot wait to own all the DVDs and watch the whole series over again, like I did with the first series πŸ™‚’s getting pretty close so far, but I still like the first series just a bit better).

And then I followed that with last week’s Power Rangers Samurai (“I bow to you, monster.. and keel you at the same time! HAHA!” ..sword on the Megazord’s head, priceless.) and then.. today’s new episode of Power Rangers Samurai (this one was easily better than last week.. yeah, I’d much rather see both Ranger chicks in wedding dresses rather than one of the guys like in the sentai version.. thanks Saban! So it’s officially spelled “Deker” and his voice is credited to “Rick Medina”. How ’bout that? I wonder if Dayu’s possibly-human past has anything related to Deker’s possibly-human past? ..and the Rangers finally meet Bulk & Spike, in passing.. about time they shared a scene.. it’d be funny to see them just pass by the Ranger teens a whole bunch of times like this, then do another “Them?” scene for the finale, like in “Countdown To Destruction”, lol).

After that, I got online for a little while again. Or many hours, waiting for the encode of today’s Power Rangers Samurai. I had wanted to fit in a movie or two today. But oh well. :p ..The encode was finally out by about 5PM. I got some more hot pockets for supper, then watched my latest Netflix selection — It’s Kind Of A Funny Story. And it was, but it is mainly a drama. And I really liked it. It’s about this teenager who admits himself into a mental hospital after having suicidal thoughts. And he ends up somewhat more positive in the end. Man, I’d sign in right away if I were promised a romantic interest like Emma Roberts. Nice. >:) ..I got emotional a few times for relating.. and realizing that I have it a lot worse off than this guy.. *sigh*

In primetime, I watched Simpsons (hahaha), Bob’s Burgers (ugh, my ears nearly bleed every time the wife/mom character speaks.. but other than that? blah) and Cleveland Show (lol). I got online for a bit.. then realized that I completely forgot about Shameless. Ack. I returned to the living room and watched most of the final episode ever of Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien (yup, all the way from January 2010.. I was doing a disc-burning-then-deleting in my misc TV folder today and noticed I.. never really watched it.. I never watched much of Conan’s Tonight Show, expecting it to be around a while.. which it obviously wasn’t.. and nowadays I make sure to watch every single episode of Conan :p). I followed that with Shameless (the 11PM repeat right at the 10PM premiere, thanks Showtime! ..very good episode too, though still on the fence if I’d buy this show on disc.. maybe wait until its cheap? *shrug*).

And that was about it.. again.. See ya.

pr samurai 05-08 spoilers / media / today

March 1, 2011

Here’s four more Power Rangers Samurai episode titles and descriptions! Next Sunday, March 6th, is “A Fish Out Of Water”. “There Go The Brides” will follow on March 13th, then “I’ve Got A Spell On Blue” is set for March 20th. But then the series will take its first break and return with “Forest For The Trees” on April 10th. Check out the brief descriptions below.

Sun. Mar. 6, 12:00 PM ET – 2007/105 – β€œA Fish Out of Water”
Kevin is assigned the crucial task of catching the elusive SwardfishZord in order to save the other Rangers who have been incapacitated by the stench of the Nighlok Yamiror’s breath.

Sun. Mar. 13, 12:00 PM ET – 2008/106 – β€œThere Go the Brides”
Dayu crosses into the mortal world to cause misery by kidnapping brides on their wedding day.

Sun. Mar. 20, 12:00 PM ET – 2009/107 – β€œI’ve Got a Spell on Blue”
A Nighlok uses mind control powers to force Kevin to fight against his fellow Rangers.

Sun. Apr. 10, 12:00 PM ET – 2010/108 – β€œForest for the Trees”
After Mike goes rogue in battle, Mentor takes Mike’s Samuraizer away until he learns a deeper lesson about the nature of the Green Ranger’s Symbol Power.

I awoke in the morning and got online, downloading and transferring shows to my PS3 like crazy. Not only were there a lot of shows last night, but I finally decided to catch up on Supernatural by downloading rather than watching from my bedroom DVR. I’ve only watched maybe the first three episodes this season so far. Maybe I’ll marathon a few today. πŸ™‚ Finding some English dub encodes of Supernatural The Animation got me inspired. Jared Padalacki voices his character all season, but there’s only a Jensen Ackles sound-alike for all but the final two episodes. :/

While My dad was sleeping, I watched last night’s Conan. Then we awoke and he mainly watched Ellen. After some time online, I returned and watch an episode of Supernatural (the catch-up begins..). I was starting the next one when my dad suddenly wanted to go out. He went to Target to get some money on his phone.. Then I went to Best Buy and picked up Pirates Of The Caribbean Ultimate Trilogy Collection. Best Buy’s exclusive packaging is pretty sweet. Huge box shaped like a book. πŸ™‚

We got some fast food for supper a bit early from Burger King (each paying for out own, his check came in today), then we watched home. I watched the rest of that second episode of Supernatural, followed by two more episodes (so from episode 4 to 7 of season 6 in one day, not bad.. and it took them that long to get to the season’s premise? :p). My dad mainly returned to sleep on and off for the rest of the night. 😦

I got online to news-gather, then in primetime I watched No Ordinary Family (haha, crazy episode :p), V (very good episode this week) and a good part of that Charlie Sheen ABC special before falling asleep.

My dad woke me up some hours later, he had been having the pains in his arm pretty much all day. But I had no idea what to do since they didn’t do anything for him last time he went to the hospital for it. My dad appeared to think he was in a home again, asking where his nurse was. He also came up with some crazy explanation for why his arm was hurting. It was probably incorrect because the doctor had written that he just needed to go to dialysis more. He was begging me to call a doctor, but I didn’t have a clue what to do, given his confusion. I asked and he said that he had been dropped off from the hospital to his home less than a week ago. He says the pain is now everywhere. Eventually, he took a prescription pill and returned to bed.

When I awoke early the next morning, my dad was gone, either to his scheduled dialysis or to the hospital again.. I don’t really know. 😦

See ya.

Sunday 02.27.2011 — Power Rangers Samurai “Stick & Stones”

February 27, 2011

I awoke in the morning and soon watched Bleach (I totally called Nel turning into some hot chick last week moments before it happened, but I didn’t expect the “camera” looking at her chest so much.. thanks though! this show had me so bored for a while.. until now.. so keep it up! :p), Kekkaishi (good episode πŸ™‚ ), Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood (great show.. I need to catch up on buying these DVDs.. and the Naruto Uncut half-seasons..) and R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: The Series (lol, stupidest one I’ve seen yet.. that girl’s worst fear is a lady with pantyhose on her face? lol.. good casting on the baddie, really reminded me of that creepy guy from Freakazoid :p ..I like the idea of kid guest stars, like the younger sister from Modern Family here and that kid from Wimpy Kid a week or two ago).

My dad woke up during all that, then we eventually had some breakfast.. and he spouted his usual things about a couple other people living here or just stopping by all the time.. then he fell asleep again.. I watched Gokaiger (episode 02, and I liked it.. yes, I’m watching sentai.. this anniversary season features pirate-themed Rangers who can transform into past Ranger teams, so I had to check it out.. really hope Saban can use it for the 20th anniversary πŸ™‚ ), soon followed by last week’s Power Rangers Samurai (again, best episode so far.. wonder how many of those people on the rollercoaster at the end were crew members :p).

After some more time waiting, it was finally time for today’s new episode of Power Rangers Samurai — “Sticks & Stones”. After three episodes of what seemed to be left out, Bulk and Spike finally become a part of an episode rather than feeling like something unrelated. Plus Spike didn’t do that annoying laugh again. But the main focus of the episode this week was the Emily the Yellow Ranger. We finally got a little bit of back story, in the form of a flashback to Emily’s past with here sister. I really liked this episode, probably even more than last week’s episode. πŸ™‚

The rest of the afternoon was mostly wasted online, visiting websites and waiting for dekabroken’s encode of today’s Power Rangers Samurai episode to show up. It showed up a few hours later than usual, then I transfered it to my PS3. I have all four episodes on my PS3 HDD so far. :p ..We eventually had some supper, then maybe watched fiive minutes of the Oscars the whole night. So boring. We instead watched Desperate Housewives (yes, from last week :p ..good episode, a character now goes to dialysis like my dad, so..), The Mentalist (wow, some episode this week πŸ™‚ ) and Shameless (haha, very good episode :p ).

And eventually, I fell asleep.. and that was pretty much it.. See ya.

pr samurai ep order confirmed / thor tales of asgard blu dvd / today

February 25, 2011

Tommy Lawson has finally confirmed that Nickelodeon is in fact airing the Power Rangers Samurai episodes out of order. The first episode aired was actually episode 3. The long-awaited origin story (likely episodes 1 & 2) may finally air as the tenth episode around late April or early May, if the previously-mentioned official hint from Saban is true.. I’d say it was Nickelodeon’s decision to do this. They have a history of doing so, plus this is the first time in this series’ history that the production crew and the network aren’t under the same company. :/

After all this time, Marvel is finally trying the animated direct-to-video film genre again.. and just in time for a related theatrical blockbuster. :p Lionsgate will release Thor: Tales of Asgard onto Blu-ray & DVD on May 17th. And like the superior DC Universe series, the discs will feature an animated series episode — from The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Neat. πŸ™‚

I stayed up quite late again last night. I didn’t get to sleep until maybe.. 4AM? I slept for some hours, awoke for a but.. then slept for a few more hours. My dad passed on going to dialysis due to a few inches of snow on the ground, but said he would go tomorrow instead. :/ We watched a bit of morning TV, then I got back online for a little while.. I returned to the living room for a little Ellen.. but then got online again..

In the afternoon.. I didn’t really watch much to start. Just some crap between more time online. Though later on, I watched House (good episode), Castle (very far behind on this one.. as soon as the alien hypotheses came up, I knew it wouldn’t be that.. really don’t like these kind of bait-and-switch episodes) and Skins US (caught up on this one, I guess.. good episode too πŸ™‚ ).

After that, I got online to news-gather. I also sorta pre-ordered LA Noire on Amazon.. while knowing very little about it. It’s from Rockstar, so it’ll probably be awesome nonetheless. I’ve always wanted a futuristic open-world game, but I guess that would be more expensive to design etc. But I can’t help but feel bashed over the head when two straight games from Rockstar both take place in the past. Ugh. inFamous is probably the closest we’ve gotten to my dream so far. And now I’m slightly underwhelmed by what very little I’ve seen of inFamous 2 as well. Still got it pre-ordered too though. :p

I ordered some pizza for supper, then my dad “went to bed” all night (he sleeps sitting up in bed, wtf?) while I watched Smallville (haha, good episode.. liked the reference to Batman & Wonder Woman.. a Matrix episode a few weeks ago.. and now The Hangover this week.. what could possibly be next? :p), Fringe (wow, good episode this week.. pleasepleaseplease don’t cancel this one Fox, grrr.. when it was on Thursday, I had to download illegally to see the episodes, but now I’m watching live every week in the Friday night “death slot”, and this season has been awesome..) and The Soup (lol).

And.. that was about it..? See ya.

pr samurai ratings & titles 7-9 / greek canceled / ps home nasa live stream / today

February 23, 2011

The ratings have come in for the third episode of Power Rangers Samurai. The February 7th premiere of “The Team Unites” brought in 2.785 million viewers, which a Power Rangers episode hasn’t done in at least a few years now. “Deal With A Nighlok” on the following Sunday improved to 3.115 million viewers. But this last Sunday, “Day Off” was only viewed by 2.890 million viewers.. I didn’t think “Nighlok” was that good of an episode either, but “Day Off” was definitely better..

Three more Power Rangers Samurai episode titles have also been revealed: episode 7 will be “I Got A Spell On Blue” (lol), episode 8 will be “Forest For The Trees” and episode 9 is “Test Of The Leader”. Looking forward to these, but even moreso the mysterious episode 10 that may just finally be the Samurai Rangers’ origin story.. if the official Power Rangers twitter and facebook pages are to be believed: “All will be revealOed…”. :p

ABC Family proves once again that they just don’t care. They have canceled Greek and its series finale will air on March 7th. Bastards. 😦

Tomorrow, February 24th, NASA and PlayStation Home will make history. At 4:50PM ET, NASA will launch its final shuttle.. and it will become the very first live-streaming event in PlayStation Home. But you can only watch the stream if you or a friend owns the Sunset Yacht personal space (formerly Amaterasu). For the event, they’ll also be updating the personal space with some cool new features such as setting the time of day. This sounds cool. I purchased the yacht a little while ago and felt slightly jipped by its features, so this should be fun. I also always wanted to see NASA TV. My cable service doesn’t carry it. 😦 …So anyone wanna come to my yacht? …Yeah, didn’t think so. 😦

I awoke in the morning, from some dream where I was collecting coins.. or something. I can barely remember upon waking up.. I got some breakfast, then watched the final two episodes of Dark Skies (more very good episodes.. damnit cliffhanger). Damn you NBC for canceling it! But then I saw their attempt to not be canceled in the form of the Shout! DVD set’s “Season Two Proposal”. They said they would skip ahead to 1997 upon getting off the mothership..? Ack, not so much agree with that. Unlike most DVDs, I actually watched through most of the bonus features, including the brand new 54min documentary with interviews with the creators and two main cast members. And now I’d like to watch the international version of the pilot movie that’s also in the DVD set as well. The changes sound interesting. πŸ™‚ They couldn’t use black suits on the previously-dubbed “Men In Black” because Men In Black was filming next door at the time? Crazy.

My dad returned home from dialysis during this, then soon fell asleep for a bit. He mainly watched Ellen while I got online for a bit, then I watched Conan (lol), Bar Karma (weird show.. it’s written by the audience.. so maybe that’s why..) and Gossip Girl (haha, good episode). Then I spent a few hours playing some Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (from Blockbuster Online.. such a n00b, stuck in the boss fight in LEVEL TWO! -_-). My dad began talking about supper, so I shut it off and got online to order the pizza I was wanting to get (any pan pizza $10 at Pizza Hut, wow). But I didn’t shut it off in time. My dad had started supper instead. Crap. And like usual, he made an extra plate for a person he insists is here. I ask who but he’s rarely able to give me a name..

I got online to news-gather.. In primetime, we watched The Middle (lol, good episode this week), Better With You (lol), Modern Family (lol, this was also pretty good), Mr Sunshine (lol, face licker), Hot In Cleveland (lol.. a tabloid named TMI, perfect :p) and Retired At 35 (lol). And that was about it really. Or I just really want to get back to my virtual yacht in PlayStation Home.

See ya.

Power Rangers Samurai in HD! And all out of order!

February 8, 2011

I was going to try and return to daily posts on Monday, but got lazy.. and didn’t. Damnit.

Power Rangers Samurai premiered last night. For weeks beforehand, fans were wondering how they could possibly fit all the premiere-y plot elements seen in the promos as well as that from the spoiler description. Some even claimed that the episodes would be airing out of order, as Nickelodeon is known to do sometimes. And as soon as the episode aired last night, that became apparent. This seemed more like a third episode than the first. Everything was suddenly just.. there. No introductions, not even for Bulk & Spike (whose intro-y scene is seen in the “Bulk Is Back” video).

I enjoyed it, but I was also thrown off by it not being an origin story. Plus I am very glad I don’t watch the sentai seasons. This season will be very close to it original Japanese version.. Nonetheless, the ratings are already in and it did rather well (up against Cartoon Network anyway). “Ratings for Power Rangers Samurai (8pm, NICK): 2.785 million viewers, 1.7/3 HH, 0.5/1 A18-49, 1.6/5 T12-17, 3.9/12 K2-11.”

Many argued that this was the intended first episode due mainly to Nickelodeon‘s production number of “101”. But today, it was revealed that, well.. I’ll just let the Saban Brands Media quote speak for itself: “Originally that was episode three but was switched with episode one. So it is considered episode one and episode one is considered episode three.”. But that sorta doesn’t make sense because the original episode 1 / new episode 3 doesn’t sound very much like an origin story either.

However, Tristanism over on RangerBoard claims something a bit different: “I received a similar message a day or two ago that suggested they switched out the “real” premiere in place of this one as well. Except this particular message suggested that we weren’t getting the “real” premiere until around week 8.” Now this makes a bit more sense.. mainly only because we don’t yet have any information for episodes that far out yet. :p

So I guess now we must play the waiting game, and enjoy some possibly-out-of-order episodes of Power Rangers Samurai until then. :/ I rewatched the episode tonight and enjoyed it a little more the second time around. Instantly looking forward to the next episode, Sunday at 12 Noon ET! πŸ™‚

Power Rangers Samurai — Episode 2001 ..or 2003: “The Team Unites”
SD 480p AVI download by dekabroken
HD 720p MP4 download by dekabroken
HD dekabroken encode on YouTube ( did he get the whole thing in one YT vid?)
My opening credits upload to YouTube (also using deka’s HD encode)

The episode has yet to appear on or on Nick On Demand (as scheduled). I’m too old-fashioned when it comes to downloads and usually don’t pay for them. I will however purchase any and every DVD or Blu-ray that Saban will offer.. so get with it already! πŸ˜€

February 27th 2011 12PM ET — PRS Episode 2004: “Sticks & Stones”
When a Nighlok who uses insults as a physical weapon to attack the Rangers, only Emily is unaffected. To help her teammates, she explains how difficult events in life become an opportunity to grow stronger.

Looking forward to that! And now thanks to Warner Home Video, I’m also looking forward to the Blu-ray release of Batman Beyond: Return Of The Joker on April 5th. The back cover plainly states it will be the uncut PG-13 version of the movie, but it also says it’ll be in full screen. Ew. I hope it doesn’t end up being non-anamorphic widescreen like on the uncut DVD (which stated full screen on its back cover as well), or there’ll no doubt be bitching about bars on all four sides. :/

pr samurai red ranger promo / today

January 10, 2011

Nickelodeon began airing two new Power Rangers Samurai promos on Saturday: profile promos for the Red & Pink Rangers. They’ve also begun eventually releasing these promos on iTunes (under the Nickelodeon Podcast). And I just stole borrowed the Red Ranger promo and put it up on YouTube. Check it below. Or you could always download the three promos released so far — here, here & here. But you’d know about them already if you followed me on twitter. :p

Jayden: “I Must Not Fail. I AM the Red Ranger.” Now it makes sense. Ricardo Medina Jr (Cole, PRWF) is in New Zealand to dispense acting lessons.. :p *considers becoming a bad guy just so Mia the new Pink Ranger will blow him away too* πŸ˜‰

Oh hey, I’m back. I sorta disappeared there for a while. Oops. Anymore, I just make a list of events for each entry and then flesh them out into paragraphs. I got bored of that.. and took a few breaks. I’m sure not many of you missed me since I’ve been too lazy to add most of the usual news up at the top of them anyway. And the more important Power Rangers related bits were also relayed through my twitter account. But now, I’m going to try and make a new start.. that’ll probably just end up looking like the same old stuff in the end. Oh well. :p

I watched all of Power Rangers Jungle Fury last week, for the first time since broadcast. As with the first viewing, I found most of it.. not so good. Fran was great, as was the romantic hintings mostly left for the end of the season. The finale wasn’t as bad either. but overall, I’m glad to have over. I re-watched all of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to Power Rangers in Space on the official German DVDs, then Power Rangers Lost Galaxy to Jungle Fury on data DVDs (yeah, encodes). Cannot wait to watch all of Power Rangers RPM again.. but I will. My complete 700-episode viewing should be done before the Power Rangers Samurai premiere though. πŸ˜‰

I also watched the Family Guy Star Wars Trilogy back-to-back on Monday. Rather average times. Haha’s @ actually admitting to the quality in the scroll on the third installment. :p ..I also tried to take part in the huge beta-ending event for DC Universe Online.. and was overall disappointed. Even after creating a very scantily-clad female villain with huge cleavage. >:) Not going to pay $60 + $15/mo for this repetitive gameplay. Maybe when the disc is cheaper. I canceled my pre-order and looked into the PS3 release of Mass Effect 2 instead.. and was left somewhat disappointed by its playable demo. It’s just not the kind of gameplay I’m used to. I do like the sci-fi plot though and may wait for a cheaper price on it too. *shrug*

My dad continues to have these moments where he totally forgets things. And he’s still coughing a lot. But today, he went to the doctor and he was told he has small lesions around his lung and that they’ll have to be removed. The surgery should occur within 2 or 3 weeks. He also went to dialysis as planned today.. then got sick again and had to go to bed.

I awoke in the morning and got online like usual. The program I use to download 145 Days of Power Rangers stopped working so well there for a while, which was why I gave up on watching them the day they’re posted. I got too behind. And now I’m finding it difficult because.. well, they’re all episodes I’ve seen at least twice or more (including once pretty recently). :p I’m still downloading and uploading now though. The program is working great. I also downloaded House of Anubis from No channel logo bugs, full closing credits (on that first hour special anyway), but the episodes are segmented files in order to skip to commercials during viewing. That’s nice to know for any future Power Rangers videos on the site.

I watched the remaining ten episodes of Robot Chicken: Season 4 on DVD. Yup, I left it unwatched since I purchased it at release date.. and the new season started just last night. I watched the previous ten episodes yesterday, of course. My dad returned home from dialysis and we watched some morning TV.. before heading back out again to a doctor’s appointment. I soon checked out PlayStation Home (I was one of the lucky few who got into the Sodium 2 beta, very nice.. I’ve always liked WipEout HD but didn’t want to pay $15 for a PSN download).

My dad returned home, delivered the bad news, then eventually went to bed. I then wasted most of my afternoon watching the recent DCOM Avalon High on Netflix instant streaming. The movie was produced by Janine Dickins, who also produced Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior and some Power Rangers Operation Overdrive. Oh and Britt Robertson is hot in it, of course. :p ..I followed that with Episodes, Showtime’s new series.. that I downloaded. Good start, though I enjoyed the first episode of Shameless (US) last night more. And not just for the sex.. though it did help.

I got online.. to.. news-gather. I also eventually ordered some pizza for supper. Since we’re running out of food, my dad still doesn’t have his food stamps and has under $20 to his name right now. 😦 Oh, and and I’ve become too lazy to go to the grocery store I guess. I used an online coupon code to buy one large pizza and get one free, so now we ended up with a whole pizza of leftovers. lol. πŸ™‚

In primetime, my dad didn’t seem to into watching TV, especially after discovering nothing new was on again. We watched most of Ellen from earlier today (oh c’mon, that ass has to be fake Nicki Minaj.. ugh), followed by last night’s Desperate Housewives (good episode, as usual). And when my dad decided to sleep, I watched last night’s Robot Chicken (AYCH DEE, whew…. ew.. still funny too though) and tonight’s new House of Anubis (a short recap instead a double commercial break would be nice.. but I’m still enjoying this show πŸ™‚ ).

And not long after that, I returned to my room for the night. See ya..?
