Remember Galaxy Rangers?

Recommended Posts

Alot of people have asked that.  Don't know.  But Netflix definitely should!  If the pod has taught me anything, it's that there's an audience for it.

I encountered Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers (1986) a few times in the '80s (I recall the episode in which the android is photocopied, overloads himself to stop the villain, and is then promoted to Ranger) and then forgot about it until it was mentioned in the anime track at Philcon by Brian Price (creator of the venerable "Bad anime, bad!" video presentation). I looked it up on Netflix, but their edition seemed to consist of only selected episodes. (Looking at its entry now, it seems to be complete -- season 1, four discs, 32 eps; season 2, four discs, 33 eps. The show's Wikipedia entry confirms 65 episodes.)

Personally, I couldn't get past the audio mix, in which the constant background music obscured the dialog. I don't know if that problem was specific to the DVD edition, or was in the originally aired version. In my ongoing revisiting of '80s toons, I have been discovering that use of BGM was typically ... mmm, not subtle.

Oddly enough, the episode you described is the one we just reviewed.  It's Episode 12, Titled "Tune Up".

And the bad audio mix you mentioned is present in this episode.  It has the worst audio of the 12 we've gone through.  Hopefully, the remaining eps don't have similar problems. 

And as usual, when we encounter an episode we don't like, we try to compensate by injecting more humor into the review.

It's Episode 16, titled "The Ax"!  We're joined by Dan Fiorella, the guy that actually wrote the episode!  This event was so huge it had to be split into two podcasts.

This next podcast breaks with the format as it's not a Galaxy Rangers episode review.  But rather, it's a candid look at the inner workings of the podcast.  Not as many jokes as usual, but I do feel cleansed.
