We’ve been off the air, so to speak, for reasons beyond our control. No episode discussion this time, but plenty of news.
The panel: Tyler; ex-fandom member, ex-PMC staff, ex-Crayfish Chris Funaro; Shamus; newbies Nicholas Cochran and Sean Brewington
-The invites have gone out to former rangers for Super Megaforce. They’re kind of ugly. A handful of cameos have been confirmed (including Jason David Frank, Selwyn Ward, Danny Slavin, Sean Cw Johnson and Jason Faunt). Others, like Rhett Fisher, were invited then uninvited. Others were invited, then didn’t get calls returned from Saban. Others turned Saben down for reasons ranging from money, to union concerns to time to longstanding issues with producers.
Still others (apparently nearly the entire Disney-era cast) didn’t get invited at all, except for, apparently, Jason Smith, now reportedly a writer for the show. Why the low turnout at this point, what happened and what does this mean for Super Megaforce?
-Some fans have tried to post a Kickstarter page trying to raise money to give to Saban Brands to afford said cameos. Why this won’t work, and some of the backstory behind a similarly ill-advised fanfilm project.
-Amit Bhaumik and producer Jonathan Tzachor, from whence this episode’s title came.
-Bluefin wants more of our money, is importing the Tamashii Nations Kibaranger (White Ranger) Figuarts.
