Spandex Report - The End (for now)

The Spandex Report
See You Round
July 23, 2011

News

The Spandex Report will be taking an extended sabbatical for the immediate future. There's several factors that went into this decision, but it's basically come down to the fact that the SR has been running for nearly 4 years now (amazing!), and the remaining editors have been running themselves ragged trying to keep this service to you all. So, to put it plainly, we need a break. We hope you all will understand our choice here.

As for how long the break will last, honestly? We don't know. We're hoping it won't be long, but it could be a while. It won't be forever though. That, we guarantee.

In the meantime, as far as keeping up with fandom goes, the watchlist we use for the report is and always has been public, so feel free to peruse our list of sources yourself.

Thank you so much for your support over the years.

The Spandex Report
Early Edition
June 19, 2011

News

- Power Rangers on Netflix has been encountering problems for people over the last five days, primarily due to the fact that all 732 episodes under one TV show has been causing any and all Netflix apps to choke past ep 255 (watching past that via browser on your computer works fine). The folks behind Netflix have attempted to circumvent this issue in the last day or two by logically splitting the show into seasons, but people here and there have still been reporting issues. We'll keep you updated.

Whoops.

In the last issue of the SR, we mentioned that we are looking for new editors to join, and for anyone interested to shoot us an e-mail at spandexreport@gmail.com.

Well, Gmail seems to have performed the magnificent tactic of sending at least one of the submissions on this end into the Spam mail folder, at which point it got deleted without thinking. Great job, Gmail!

So if anyone had e-mailed us about this within the past 24 hours (and we know for sure at least one person did), please resend the mail, and we apologize for the inconvenience here.

The Spandex Report
The "Holy Crap, Two Weeks Adds Up" Edition
June 7, 2011

News
- This first bit of news is a non-franchise deal, probably more suited for the Editor's Note, but we wanted to make sure everyone saw it. Basically, we're looking for some new folks to help out around these parts! [personal profile] angel_negra and [livejournal.com profile] lielabell had to leave the SR for greener pastures (we will miss them greatly, of course), so we're in the market for two new editors. If any of you are interested, please hit us up at spandexreport@gmail.com.
- As you may have noticed from the lack of a "Next Episode Airtimes" section below, last Saturday's ep "Boxed In" seems to be the last for a while. We're currently on reruns now and will be for some time to come, it seems. Whether this is only a short break or whether the original word on the streets about Samurai lasting two years is true remains to be seen.
- Speaking of Samurai, a new video game by Namco Bandai was revealed at E3 today that will be coming out this holiday season for Wii and DS. A trailer can be seen on Youtube here.
- Anybody that's planning on going to San Diego Comic Con this year may be interested in a contest that can get you VIP treatment for the con's PR-based events and panels. More information can be found at the official PR Facebook page here.

Editor's Note

You may have noticed that, over the last few weeks, the SR has been bouncing back and forth between Sunday and Monday. Originally this was due to schedule slips and real life intervening on us, but the editors collectively realized that Monday actually works a lot better for us, not least because we can get the entire week into each issue without worrying about missing out on any fandom stuff put up Sunday afternoon and evening. So basically, expect the SR to drop every Monday from now on. However, also expect each issue to only hold items from Monday to Sunday; ie. anything fandom related that went up today is not guaranteed to be in this post.

Also, for those of you into Super Sentai, Power Rangers' Japanese source material, do note that their weekly newsletter, [community profile] finalauraburst, has been back up and running for about a month now. We know a friggin lot of you are watching Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, so perhaps this may interest you. :)

The Spandex Report
DAVID YOST.
May 1, 2011

News
- Last week we mentioned the theory that "a lot of folks think Samurai's ratings would get a significant bump if the show moved new episodes to Saturdays permanently". Looks like that's about to be tested, as the next episodes we have airdates for have indeed been moved from Sunday up to Saturday. Please to be changing your DVR settings!
- Our own [personal profile] thesecondbatgirl attended No Pink Spandex Live this weekend, alongside quite a few of our followers. Word from the masses is that the event was "freaking amazing" and that David Yost is the nicest ever. We're glad everyone had fun! For those who couldn't make it, pictures and video are coming in the future.
- The Samurai Rangers visit the White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll.
- The Samurai Rangers also stopped by a school in Arkansas as part of their emPOWER program. Click here to learn more about the emPOWER program.

The Spandex Report
Galwit Mysto Report!
April 24, 2011

News
- Take a look at the schedule below to make sure you don't miss it: next week's episode (the first after a week break) airs this coming Saturday. This is the only episode in the schedule below that is currently set for a Saturday premiere, though a lot of folks think Samurai's ratings would get a significant bump if the show moved new episodes to Saturdays permanently, so perhaps this is a test along those lines. Either way, make sure you turn in Saturday and not Sunday, or else you'll miss the ep.

Emergency Spandex Report - 03-25-11

The Spandex Report
Well, That Was Unexpected
March 25, 2011

News
This "emergency" report isn't nearly as important as the last one we did back in May about Saban getting a hold of PR again, but anyways. Those of you who don't check the forums or various journal communities may be unaware that a new episode of Samurai is airing this Sunday. Previously, the next episode, Forest for the Trees, wasn't airing until April 10, but it's been moved up to two days from now. Word around the rumor mill is that this is because the ratings for Samurai are just that good, although it's worth noting that only one episode was moved forward; Test of the Leader will still air in late April. Either way, be sure to turn on your TV's or DVR boxes this Sunday at noon.
