Before Power Rangers, Children's Live-Action Had Another Name: PHOTON!
I've been wondering where I could find info on this insepid, wretched, but as a kid I just couldn't help watch show.
It was PHOTON.
It was like Lazer Tag back in the 80's, but the other Lazer Tag.
There used to be alot of Lazer Tag knock offs, battling for dominance like soda companies!
Thing about these laser tag games that sucked was... you couldn't hit anybody!
Person had to be sitting perfectly still and you had to have the nerves of a crack sharpshooter even then to hit the target on the person's chest that would fall of the velcro pad you had on your belt if you ran too fast.
They were cool guns to look at, and fun to use in imaginary quests where you stormed an enemy frigate and were blowing away imaginary villians, but the sucked if you tried to play with a friend.
I haven't read it yet, but I will after I get some soup. *AH-CHOO!!!* Damn, cold...
Best quote from the review to sum up this show:
The 80's were awesome!
It's absolutely insane. It's Godzilla meets Power Rangers meets Culture Club meets Family Ties meets that old little dwarfish principal lady from Kindergarden Cop, who if painted green, would look so much like that scary movie Leprechaun guy that we'd be forever safe if Warwick Davis dies first and the director needs a replacement. You see? You see what watching Photon does to you? I can't control the words that come out of my mouth, and evidently, even the ones that I type. In the end, it's all worth it. I honestly can't believe this show hasn't garnered some serious cult status for itself - this is weirder than any weird movie I've ever seen, and it's not even trying
