PRDT 1214 "Truth and Consequences" script (Scans)

PRDT 1214 "Truth and Consequences" Final Draft, Blue & Pink Pages (combined) Release.

Notice the "Master Parted Script" mention. As you can see, the pages aren't colored. Basically, this is a repress of the script after most of the revisions had gone through, and thus they're all white. A little more concise and focused that what we're used to, really.

Also notice the hand written notations stating the scene durations, and the specifics of the filming unit (2U is 2nd unit, stock is stock footage, MU is Masters of the Universe... or Main Unit, more likely).

For specifics on what was changed between this script and onscreen... read it and compare to the ep yourself! And DISCUSS! Discuss here, discuss on some PR boards, talk about it, people!

PRDT 1216 "Burning at Both Ends" script (scans)

PRDT 1216 "Burning at Both Ends" Final Draft, Blue, Pink & Yellow Pages (combined) Release.

Just for those at home who are slow, it's spelled out for everyone here that Trent has chameleon civilian powers. Tommy regained control of the ATV by "blasting some wires on it", which didn't entirely come across in the final product (he just hits it on the side and it stops).

PRDT 1217 "The Missing Bone" script (Scans)

PRDT 1217 "The Missing Bone" Final Draft, Blue, & Pink Pages (combined) Release.

Another aspect of the NZ scripts I've failed to mention thus far, is that unlike the MMPR Prod scripts, they know who'll be the director ahead of time. The director names are on the script from the start! PR's always been filmed in blocks of about three at a time anyway, so they most likely would've known who was directing the eps by the time of final drafts. But it's still interesting, especially since the directors have no real say on the scripts!

PRDT 1218 "Bully for Ethan" script (Scans)

PRDT 1218 "Bully for Ethan" Final Draft, Blue, Pink & Yellow Pages (combined) Release.

Obviously, the little details of the "Tommy's filing system" aren't filled in. That was all an issue of the prop department. Hence those files with various pre-Saban Sentai logos on them, and all the old Tommy photos. Only one is spelled out, and even that's left generic! Another interesting aspect is how it says, right here in the script, that the guy playing Smitty is a stunt man. And there's a lot of mention of omitting joysticks from footage.

Mega Rangers Element Breakdown (Scans)

Courtesy of MistyStuffer, who bought this at Power Morphicon 2010 and graciously donated the scans.

This is, basically, the pre-bible for Power Rangers in Space. It dates back to May 1997, when Turbo's second half hadn't even begun filming! There are so many differences here that it will blow your mind. Take a look, see how things looked when gearing up to pre-produce PRiS, from the first 27 episode summaries of Megaranger, to Darkonda being called "Spike" (not Skull's son... or is he?), Bulk & Skull's Citizen Force Group, Dark Specter as Goldgoyle's giant floating head, and no Andros? There's all of that, and so much more. Do yourself a favor, download it, read it, and enjoy!
