|For those that have been wondering about the progress of the GR DVD, rest easy tonight knowing that the powers that be are meeting soon to discuss the matter. Keep the email level down to a low roar if you know what email addresses to use to rattle the cages, just be calm and patient. Mr. Robert Mandell dropped an email by the other day and had some of the following to tease us with possibilities of the DVD and TV appearance of GR:|
|"..... plan allows me to completely digitally re-master all episodes from the original masters sitting in the Gaylord vaults, including 5.1 audio expansion. The plan is an ambitious 8 DVD package (8 episodes each), although it might get broken up. Each DVD will be filled with extra stuff like full length recordings of songs, original demo presentations, voice over commentaries (mystery science theater style) audio tracks by me .... and anyone else we can cajole into sitting with us, original designs, sketches, storyboards, some new animation, some old animation, and whatever else we can think of.|
The other interesting thing is that it seems I may have to re-freshen the package of 65 original episodes with 26 new ones if I want to get the series back on the air in a meaningful way here .... it would mean a new team of series 6 Rangers, 20 years later. Well, it's fun to think about anyway.
|Thanks to Robert for the update and I'm sure the idea of Series 6 Rangers may spark some fan fiction interest. Speaking of which...|
|I was lucky enough to catch Bruinhilda on IRC the other morning and she told me about FanFiction.net and the GR section over there. Check out the listed fan fiction and add your own if you have it. Click here!|
Also, I know we have some German (and I apologize if I'm generalizing here, it's just an example of my small scope of the real world. Feel free to email me and correct me), GR fans out there that have some fan fiction there that has been tediously translated to English for our reading pleasure. Well, I see that www.galaxy-rangers.com has a Fanfic section starting up. Perhaps it'd be a chance to put the original material up for posting. The email address listed is webmaster @ galaxy-rangers.com.
|Check out Transformers Online, a nice site that features one of the classic shows from the 80's, 90's and 00's.|
