    Does anyone remember or know a show with 3 characters who also had those power ranger like costumes? It was also somewhere early in the 90's. maybe there's a list somewhere with all these live action shows so I could recognise them? I sadly don't know the title anymore

    It was called VR Troopers. It was nothing like Power Ranger because I watched it.

    VR Troopers ran from 94 until 96. It was made by Saban Entertainment, the same people who did Power Rangers. This is the show you mean.

    Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad was done by DiC, just to cash in on PR's fame. It ran from 94 until 95.

    Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills was another cash in ripoff, this time on the USA network. It came and went in 94, basically. The less said, the better.

    Masked Rider was another Saban production, and the only show to officially spin-off from MMPR. It ran from 95 until 96.

    Big Bad Beetleborgs replaced Masked Rider, and eventually had ratings higher than PR did at the time. It became "Beetleborgs Metallix" in its second season. It ran from 96 until 98.

    Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog was the final Saban show to be based in the PR mold, though unlike all others had no Japanese footage involved. It ran from 98 until 99.

    You should check out their pages on Wikipedia and it's sub-pages. For VR Troopers, it's Virtual Dungeon and Virtual Dark Fourtress. For Beetleborgs, it has it's monster page.

    Ultraman's short lived existance on the Fox Box was because it was 4Kids doing their butchered dubs, which turned away most of the hardcore Ultraman fans, and the fact that they gave it a timeslot that was directly against PR. First the 8:30am slot against ABC Family's airing, and a few weeks later, they moved it to 11:30am, which was directly against the ABC Kids' airing where the first run episodes were premiering at the time.
