Captain Power

Post  justjay - admin on Sun Jul 12, 2009 10:28 am

Captain Power was awesome. I remember being in the third or fourth grade and sitting in class counting the seconds until I could go home and play it -- wait what? Play? Yeah. It wasn't just a show, it was a game. Here's the intro to the show, after which I will talk about about the game aspect.



So a show you play? Yeah. You bought these toys that looked like a mix between an airplane and a gun and you pointed it at the screen. There were special light sensors on the toy and on the show there were two kinds of special lights. Pink was a target and yellow was dangerous. Shoot pink and you get a point. If you ddnt move the toy away from the screen when the yellow flashed, you took a hit. Take too many hits and the plane ejected the action figure out -- it was so badass. The action figure of your character would go flying. Heres a commercial for the show/toy. If you were a boy and saw this, you had to have the xt-7. Had to.



As a result, a controversy broke about about the fact that children would have to buy a toy to take full advantage of a show. There was even a news report about it.

My brother used to play this all the time! My favorite part is when they would stand on that machine thingy and put their hands on the light and say POWER ON!!

Good stuff. Thanks for putting these shows up JustJay. It really brings back the memories. Post more if you think of them and I will read them while im at work next week. It has been really boring at work lately. I can't wait until your new show is out. Luckily they let us listen to our ipods there! Oh and the story about how the show had controversy was really interesting.

ok bye Smile

Woah, this is only the second time Ive been on here when someone else was on lol!

Glad you enjoyed the themes, it's something I like to do when I have bad writer's block, I'll just go to youtube and browse the tv thems. It helps grease up the the gears. Also sometimes me and amanda will just sit there and listen to them. We'll even quiz each other on them!

Awesome that they let you have your ipod! Most places don't let people wear them. Do you work at a toll booth or something? That is like my dream job. Oh, and we should have a new episode out later this week! I'm actually working on the research right now.

Later!

Yeah I just saw that you were on too! So youre doing research as we speak? Make it a good show! I'll be listening!!

Also no I don't work at a toll booth but it might as well be! I work at a library. Dont get me wrong I love being surrounded by books and the type of people who go to libraries are my favorite type of people but I go through these rough patches where I just get tired of being there.

Cant wait for the new episode!

bye!

Yeah I get you. Sometimes I have days like that too. In fact, the whole reason Amanda and I started this podcast was to have something to put our time into, so that those points, between the mundane aspects of our lives, would be lucrative. So far it's worked.

Thanks so much! That means a lot, to hear you say that!

We just celebrated our 12 year anniversary and yes, I think we both appreciate how lucky we are. Sometimes you just luck out and find the right one, you know? But don't fret, I'm sure there's an awesome dude out there! You just never know! Amanda and I met at park where my friends and I were sabotaging a rival punk band. She drove the getaway car! You just never know!

The what concert?

Yeah, the PMs work just fine. Sometimes if people have popups blocked they wont get the notification so they'd actually have to see it on the menu bar. I wish there was a way to fix that, but as of now I don't see any.
