I have just one thing to say. Although it’s taking time to bring Captain Power back to us- renewed and revised, I want to thank the creators and crew for sticking with it. It’s my understanding that they are doing their due diligence to preserve the sanctity of Captain Power not only for the fans of today but for those of the original.
What prompts me to post this is the news that Jem and the Holograms, a much beloved cartoon and another show of the mid-80s has been turned into a motion picture.
I have seen the preview trailer and I am aghast! The writers and producers have taken creative licensing of this project and changed it. I’m not sharing links because I refuse to promote such heresy.
And for me it is heresy when people take something that has been and is treasured by many and corrupted to their own liking for profit. There have been so many changes to the concept of Jem that it looks like a blending of her story with Barbie and the Rockers.
So, I reiterate my thanks to The Goddard Film Group the Powers that be behind Captain Power and tSotF; Thank you for working your best to preserve a much beloved show. (and saying no to those interested if to only change things to their will). Continue to preserve the life of this show!
(and yes, I have my Power Pin!)
