I've just regressed to being an 8 year old.

Was trolling Netflix, found they've added all 18 seasons of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers... and both movies.

I'm almost... almost.. tempted to watch them.. but I am nearly 100% certain that my memories of how much fun the show was will be destroyed by how bad the show is to a 26 year old. This experiment has been played out already with Macgyver. It's not nearly as awesome as I remember it, on the other hand I also am finding other things to enjoy in it.. such as Terry "Dalek" Nation being the writer on the second episode...

They've also added the first season of Masters of the Universe. That was a show I never really got into, but I know a lot of people loved it. Now if they would just add Thundercats!

I was too old for Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, but I rememeber Thundercats with some fondness.

I have been tempted at times to check out the old Transformers episodes, of which I have some great memories. But I'm afraid of spoiling them!

Surprisingly quite a few of them are very good. Especially the Donald F. Glut written ones.

The first season, barring a few inconsitancies is highly coherenat and actually caries over plot points from one episode to another. Season 2 however is a complete mixed bag.. and season 3, the ones set after the movie, go from out right horrible with Carnage in C-Minor, to Great with Dark Awakening and Call of the Primatives.
