Personal Quotes (5)

[Introducing his Power Rangers History videos] Liking a cheesy kids show to the point where I'm actually doing analysis of it doesn't make me a freak any more than someone who thinks that The Phantom Menace was the best Star Wars movie ever.
[on Bulk and Skull from Power Rangers] It's one thing to be brave when you got powers, good looks, and the uncanny ability to do fifteen things at once and be loved by all. It's an entirely different matter to be the underdog: not the smartest or the best in shape and still stand up to evil.
Something that sometimes people forget is that you don't need great special effects in order to carry a great show or movie ... because the story is good.
[when asked if he has ever read his Encyclopedia Dramatica article and how he feels about it] I have, but it was years ago. And no, I'm not bothered by it. People are entitled to their own opinion about whether they like my show or not. I was more upset that they were posting my then-address and suggesting they go to my place and mess with me... except they were suggesting things like "egg my house" or go to Iron Liz's workplace and annoy her. ...You know, the things 12 year-olds think of. But even if they were actually serious and hated me with every fiber of their being, it doesn't matter. I've gotten messages before from people telling me that my show helped make them feel better during dark times, or helped them with their depression or tough life. What the hell can some asshole on a mock Wikipedia page say to top that?
Fandom is a funny thing. It's easy to call the fans of any particular subject, be it sports, a movie, a TV show, etc., the worst kind of people. In reality, everybody is passionate about certain subjects and will take up arms in their defense. I'm no different and there are plenty of TV shows, characters, and etc. that I will defend.
