    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    The Time Force season of Power Rangers (which aired from February through November) suffered heavily in a similar fashion because of the 9/11 thing in 2001. The main villain was Ransik, who was portrayed as a "sympathetic" terrorist gang leader. The Rangers' Shadow Zord always posed on top of "twin towers". Several of Ransik monster attacks took place at the "Trade Center" district. And just two weeks before 9/11 happened an episode was aired with an "airplane" themed monster of the day. The story of the episode, a reporter takes a picture of the Rangers unmasked and Yellow Ranger tries to convince the reporter not to print the story. Meanwhile, the "airplane" monster attempts to topple over the skyscraper building where the newspaper is based, so we get an "inside the building look" as Yellow Ranger and this news reporter tries to help people escape from the badly damaged building before it collapses.

    She didn't seem up Ted's alley because he was on her hook.

    Yeah, I forgot about that one. Fox has a way of putting on product that folks might want to see and instead of nurturing it, KILLING IT IN THE MOST PAINFUL MANNER POSSIBLE. That's a skill, I guess.

    Wow, that is really bad. Time Force was one of the PR lines I liked most too, but I didn't watch much of the show.

    Yeah, Time Force is one of my top seasons as well, but it was indeed bad with the "too soon 9/11" stuff. A lot of the pre-9/11 episodes were re-edited for future airings after 9/11. Not quite certain how extensive the re-editing was though, whether or not it was just the aired copies shown on TV or if it included the original "masters". Lots of building explosions removed, re-dubbed the lines about mentioning the Trade Center, the two tower shots removed completely. Even an "Al Queada" type speech given on TV by Ransik was removed.

    Could of been worse in the terrorists 9/11 stuff though. Go back two seasons earlier during the Lost Galaxy season and you have a finale that features the Sting Wingers (that season's "Putty Patrol" type foot soldiers) in the hundreds, easily, with explosives strapped to their chests as they ran into various buildings, crowds of people, and even the Rangers themselves acting as "suicide bombers".

    Anybody else watching this season of HIMYM? Any thoughts on Zoey? I had been thinking that she could maybe be the mom (although she is married) but now that I think about it the mom already lives with Rachel Bilson's character, plus wouldn't Zoey be too old?
