It essentially gave the rangers the ability to fly. Granted, I think they were stuck going in one direction, but still.

Jetting was one of the many silly aspects of the first couple power rangers seasons imo.
I, too, have always wondered how Bulk and Skull knew about it. So much random!

Eh, the only real problem with the Shark Cycles is that they didn't get more use. While they didn't make sense as an alternative to teleporting, they at least had combat applications. Jetting, not so much.

It seemed weird and somewhat pointless to me. I'm left wondering what the point was, unless it was made up solely to further pad out the Ninja Encounter three-parter. But it didn't even do that very well. Did the writer's have some other ideas in mind for it?
I thought it was interesting but it really didn't make a whole lot of sense.

On the topic, I don't know why they bothered to use Jetting given that IIRC they only used it twice
yea it was dumb since they could teleport and they also had the Radbug but I suppose the car they were using for the Radbug wasn't working anymore that's the only thing that I can think of for why we didn't see it after Season 1.

that's what I had assumed as well since I was under the assumption that they were using jetting as another illusion technique to make us gullible little kids believe Zack, Trini and Jason were still there even though their actors weren't.

They could just as easily put a helmet on a red lightning bolt and call it a teleporting Red Ranger. I don't see why adding a concept to the show was necessary.

The most you could do with it would be a Happy-Meal-style toy with a stand for the inarticulate Ranger figures in a "jetting" pose.

That's what makes it so bizarre: You can't use the "to sell toys" excuse because there was no toy to be sold.
he's right they didn't and it'd be hard to make one to begin with anyway.

problem is they never did it.

yea it was a bad idea but no one was going to edit it out.

I agree the Shark Cycles had more of a practical use in case they were up against a monster who was quite fast since they had combat capabilities whereas jetting didn't it would've made more sense if jetting had combat capabilities.

Such an under appreciated mode of transportation.

Kart is for Mario Kart you're looking for Cart but yes it would've been nice to see more of the Turbo Carts in action.

I too usually enjoy the vehicles in fact I think for me the Shark Cycles, Galaxy Gliders, Tsunami Cycles, Raptor Riders, Patrol Cycles and Uni-Force Cycle were some of my favorites along with the Galactic Rover.

Default Re: Jetting

I was just reading this and that reminded me for some reason that for the longest time I remembered Forever Friends having a part where at some point after they rescued Kimberly there was a part where when they jetted Kimberly jetted with the others.

But recently I saw it, and I only saw the part before they rescued her where they Jetted without her.

I don't know, it was pretty pointless. I am not surprised that they don't do it anymore.

It feels like season 3 just through a lot out there. I mean we had like four or five opens that season alone lol. I had a lot to do with the fly by your seat nature of production.
