League of Extraordinary Bloggers - I Hate.....

This week the League's members are spreading the hate....pop culture hate that is....

"What piece of pop culture did you HATE as a kid?"

As a kid I pretty much loved all things your average 80s boy would love. I was a naive, play until you're dirty, sweaty, and thirsty, action figure loving, care free, happy go lucky kid (and I loved every minute of it!). There wasn't much I could think of that I hated. BUT there were the......
I don't know what it was about this show but I HATED it. I hated seeing it on TV, I hated seeing kids playing anything related to it.... I just plain hated it.
Part of my hatred towards this show and its characters lies in the fact that I felt it was a rip off of Voltron, a show I loved in my younger years. As proven in the photo below...
I'm the one in blue.
I mean c'mon....what the hell is this crap???? 

I guess I was about 12 years old when this show first aired, but I don't think my age had anything to do with it. At the time I still loved the X-Men cartoon and Saturday morning cartoons. I just think it was the overall lameness of it and the fact that the live action fights between morons in suits were piss poor at best. The acting sucked, the enemies were corny, I don't even know what to say about that Zordon dude. Bottom line, the 90s really aint got nothin on the 80s!

"It's morphin time!" or "I have the POWER!"????....I'll take the latter...

So there you have it. My hate filled rant has come to a close. And yes, the Nerd Nook is a Morphin free zone!

  1. I am sure I would have hated it too if I hadn't been to old to give it any notice.

  2. I loved it because it was just like a bunch of other things I liked. It was Voltron and Ultraman all put together. Some of the acting was bad, and it was cheezy... but it was still fun.
