Yesterday I gave homage to a favorite metal hero of mine, Space Sheriff Shaider. Today, I’ll be paying tribute to another Sentai classic, Choudenshi Bioman. In my opinion, I consider Bioman to be the father of everything else that followed and its clear that Power Rangers have copied a great deal from them.

One thing bothers me though. I never got to finish this sentai series. For some strange reason all the local networks that showed this never got to finish it. I’d gladly.

This series also has 2 opening scenes because the original yellow 4 died.

Its fun to see pictures like these every once and a while. It reminds me of my childhood. Space Sheriff Shaider.

Though it gave us many repetitive scenes the lessons it gave were priceless.

Shaider was shown on Saturday mornings right before another favorite show of mine, Maskman. As a friend recalls, there used to be Snaku commercials in between. Ah the good old days. Its fun to remember your childhood once in a while.

And I leave you with the intro of the series:
