  • show Description
  • This show ran on the USA Network for 40 episodes, shortly after the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" franchise grew. Focusing on four "teenagers", Laurie, Gordon, Drew, and Swinton being recruited by an blob-like alien called Nimbar. To fight off the monsters sent by Emperor Gorganus, and his talking bird friend, Lechner. In the first episode Nimbar recruits four "teenagers", and with a touch by his "finger" gives them each a tattoo from the Zodiac. When their tattoo flash, this means he needs them and a portal appears near them to go his underground lair-like place. To become their sentinel form, they step on a platform, AKA the Transo Discs (in the lair) and each yell out their sign. Laurie is Scorpio (Aqua/Light Blue-ish), Gordon is Taurus (Black), Drew is Centaur (Purple), and Swinton is Apollo (Yellow). When putting their hands together (in square) they form the ultimate sentinel, Nitron! This was really a low-budget kid show, which the Emperor Gorganus was made up from what looks like old rubber Halloween like costumes. His side kick, Lechner a talking bird is made out of rubber, too.moreless

  • Quotes (74)

    • Gordon: (To Swinton, about their project) When we present it to the class, I'd better do it. You see of the four of us, I have the best communication skills. No insult intended, but you are sort of an egghead geek. Drew: (Angry) Oh, nice communication skills.

    • Lechner: Oh, the pretty blue one? Emperor Gorganus: It won't be pretty for long.

    • Nimbar: Individualy you each bring something special to the battle. Together you can form atruly powerful warrior. Trust me, I am a superior being.

    • Nimbar: Laurie, you are Scorpio. You can bring everyone together. Gordon: She's a cheerleader, that's what she does.

    • Drew (Looks at glowing tattoo on her arm) Huh, feature that, now we're the tattooed teenage alien fighters.

    • Laurie: (To Nimbar after hearing him call them Galactic Sentinels) I think you made a mistake. Nimbar: There is no mistake. That is why you bare the tattoo of the order of Galactic Sentinels. Gordon: May I point out, we don't have any tattoos. Nimbar: (Says something in an alien language) Laurie: Uh, Nimbar, you lost me. You dropped out of English there. Swinton: I think he means oops. Nimbar: Oops. Swinton: Told you.

    • Nimbar: The map of the Power Portals fell into Emperor Gorganus's possession. Gordon: Let me guess, that's bad.

    • Drew: (After hearing Nimbar introduce himself) That was a mouthful, if it even has a mouth.

    Notes (3)

    • Proving the apple never falls far from the tree, Series creators Jim Fisher and Jim Staahl previously co-wrote the movie Beverly Hillbillies, which was based on the hit TV series of the same title. The film starred Dabney Coleman, Erika Eleniak, Lea Thompson, Rob Schneider, Lily Tomlin and the late Jim Varney.

    • The bark that they take looks like cinnamon.

    • This is one of the few times we hear them say their sentiels differently. First Gordon, then Drew.

    Trivia (5)

    • As "Scorpio," Laurie wields a single Chinese hook-sword; these weapons are designed to be wielded in pairs, for greater well as optimum versatility and effectiveness.

    • Drew's constellation is actually Sagittarius, rather than Centaurus. Also, there is no such constellation as Apollo; Swinton's is actually Aquarius.

    • The light used to make the tattoos glow can be seen as its glare can be seen on Drew's jacket.

    • The bad girl in her alien freeze mode didn't have a name. Writer Diamond asked his six year old son, Tom, what he would name an ice monster. "Ice Monster." Given a second chance, he came up with 'Isolus'. It's in the show just that way.

    • While working on an earlier episode, writer Diamond turned to Producers Fisher and Staahl and said something like -- 'it'd be funny if Gorganus left Lechner in charge and he screwed things up'. Suddenly-- it was an episode!

    Allusions (2)

    • The title is a play on the FOX show The X Files.

    • Gordon: The title role of "The Taming of the Geek?"
      Refers to play, Taming of the shrew.
