Power Rangers: The End of an Era. And the Possibility of a New One?

The two part finale of Power Rangers RPM airs this Saturday on ABC (for those lucky enough to have an ABC affiliate that actually airs the series).

RPM is the 17th (yes, 17th) season of the Power Rangers franchise. And while the series is far from the peak of its popularity in the mid-90s, it is still a big draw in countries around the world like Germany (where full season DVD sets have been released) and the Philippines (where a dubbed version airs every weekend). Not to mention, the action figures by Bandai still fly off the shelves.

But RPM’s finale this Saturday not only means the end of what many fans are calling one of the best seasons yet, but it could also be the end of the Power Rangers as we have known it. Continue reading

Everyone’s busy in the Garage, but Ziggy wants to go out and asks each one of the others to go with him, but they all decline. Surprisingly, Dr. K comes up to Ziggy and offers to go out with him. Everyone seems surprised, especially Ziggy. She puts on a quaint straw hat and they head out.

Ziggy wonders why she wanted to go out if she doesn’t want to do anything. That’s none of his business she says as Kilobyte appears with an army of Grinders. “Don’t worry Dr. K, I got you covered,” Ziggy assures her, but she doesn’t seem all that reassured.

Power Rangers RPM’s Rose McIver Gets Rave Reviews for “The Lovely Bones”

She may be kicking Venjix ass as Summer Landsdown on Power Rangers RPM, but could Rose McIver be kicking some Best Supporting Actress ass come March?

That is, could this New Zealand native score an Oscar nomination for her pivotal role in the Peter Jackson-directed film The Lovely Bones?

Her performance as Lindsey Salmon in the buzzed about film is drawing some attention, including having San Francisco Chronicle film critic Ruthie Stein to include Rose in her early Oscar predictions.

While the film itself is getting mixed reviews in its current limited release, Rose is being singled out in many reviews as an excellent, movie stealing standout performance.

Entertainment Weekly even featured her as “Peter Jackson’s new discovery” in a November issue.

Best of luck to Rose. Imagine, an Oscar nominee from Power Rangers?

The RPM cast is doing pretty well for themselves it seems. Look out for Eka Darville in the also buzzed about Spartacus: Blood and Sand premiering in January on Starz.
