Yeah, i really enjoyed that show. It was an original concept. Sam Collins, the main character, was sucked into his computer game due to an accident and fights off evil viruses as the superhero Servo (my display pic) that are disrupting the internet and electric currents. He also has a group of friends to assist him: Tanker, Amp and Syd - All of which ahve their own zord type robots that aid Servo in fights. These zords/robots can combine with Servo to form a more powerful being. All in all, it was a really cool show. I liked it and Beetleborgs the most.

I remember it to, and really liked it. Like Power Rangers, VR Troopers, and BeetleBorgs, I know that it was based on a Japanese show, but I can't figure out what it is. It is reminiscent of Ultraman, but it isn't an Ultra show, does any one know wich one it is?

Yep it was based off of a Japanese show called "Gridman" (1993). That's about all I know of it, though.

x3 I loved both Gridman and Superhuman Samurai: Cyber Squad. In my opinion, this was the only time that a Toku has been americanized decently. And on a personal note, I mainly watched the show for the Gridman Fight Scenes. I didn't care for the real world stuff. x3

U forgot Syd (Not from SPD) She was the brains of the operation who also had a zord-thing to fuse to Servo.

I didn't only understand one thing:
What has the samurai theme got to do with this computer story? :o

Italian Ranger
10-14-2005, 09:35 AM
Now i remember before Gridman and then Superhuman Samurai were created there was an american film based on the same concept.
Do you remember Tron 2.0?
In this flm the main caracther Kevin Flynn was "molecularized" by a super computer's laser and sent into the net like a program file.
Once he was here together with two program files created by his friends Flynn travels in the net to find the necessary information to destroy the Master Control Program and free all the program files from his control and to rehabilitate the omunications between programs and the "creatives" (the human programmers).
He also has to find a way to come back to his human form and world.

Gridman was created as a spin-off to the Ultraman series but unlike Ultraman, Gridman lives permanently in the grids and has no human form. He is assisted by humans much like they assist Servo but they don't pilot the aircraft I think

basically a much more powerful Servo.

I remember two tipe of combnations:
In one there are 3 veichels which can combine before in a robot and then they all combine with servo to create Samurai Syncro
In the other combination there's one cybernetic dragon who combines with servo to create Samurai Phormo.
In both the formation all these kind of "zords" combines on servo forming an armor for him

Yeah, after watching a few episodes after all these years I've remembered Servo's upgrade combinations. And yeah, your right:

Samurized Attack Vehicles:
- Tracto + Vitor + Borr = Zenon
(Tanker's) (Amp's) (Syd's)
(3 attack vehicles form seperate entity)

- Tracto + Vitor + Borr + Servo = Superhuman Samurai Synchro
(3 attack vehicles attach to Servo)

- Drago + Servo = Superhuman Samurai Phormo
(Drago, cybernetic dragon attaches to Servo)

Drago actually had several forms. The part that formed the dragon head and torso was a jet fighter-type deal called Jamb (I think),and the part forming the arms, legs, and wings was an air cruiser called Torb. When the two combined into a suer air cruiser, they were known colelctively as Korpher. Korpeher then transformed intt he dragon-like Drago. When the two combined with Servo, Torb formed every bit of his armor and Jamb became the dragon-shaped artillery cannon that he used to finish off opoonents. This was also the first suit of armor they discovered for Servo. (Also, anyone who has the toys will know that it is impossible to pose Servo in the armor with the dragon-cannon-thing because the sheer weight of the cannon would cause him to tip over like a drunk on New Year's Eve.)

I was talking about Servo's combinations, but yeah, true. Drago had a couple forms of his own.

Torb + Jamb = Korpher (who) = Drago.

Drago + Servo = Superhuman Samurai Phormo.

Here are the combos:

I haven't used YouSendIt.Com myself but i'd think its pretty simple as many people upload media onto it. I think you have to register an account there (its free) and the site should fill you in on the rest of the steps/details. You could also try; megaupload.com , or rapidshare.com, their quite popular as well. If you could ge those eps up itd be really great.

I was very impressed with Malcolm. The way he felt everyone was against him and interpreted every little thing as everyone-that-isn't-him's grand conspiracy to make his life miserable, and how he needed vengeance against them so much that he'd do anything, even help Kilokhan, whom he <i>knows</i> is evil and has betrayed him more than once... the psychological aspect with him was brilliant. They don't get nearly enough credit for that.

I didn't know the flying tank form of Drago had a name! I never heard it on the show.

Yeah, Malcolm was a very well-done, written, and acted villain. He was a serious strong point in the show.

I lover SERVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111 the super human samurai. It was like a mix between Ultraman and Reboot. I was also a big computer nerd even back then, so I liked the whole digital cities and concepts.

I will say this SHS had some the most interesting designed Battle Backgrounds. I'm also a big fan of the Giant hero vs Giant Robot (even though he had a zord-like helper).

I believe Kilokhan and Servo fought on two occasions. The first time was in the episode "Kilo is coming to town" (a Christmas focused ep). In this fight, Kilokhan had a massive surge of power to help him because Malcom made everybody turn on electrical devices at the exact same time. Because of this K-Khan was able to overpower Servo. However, Servo requested that Malcolm (who, by this time, had realized he was being used as Kilokhan's puppet) reboot the computer as this would fry Kilo's circuits and at the same time vanquish both him and Kilo effectively. So Malcom rebooted the computer, and Servo was able to harness the energy caused by the reboot and he used it against Kilokhan to destroy him completely. So instead of dying to the energy of the reboot, Servo was able to harness it to his advantage. Servo lived, however, when he desamurized all the memories of the Kilokhan fight were wiped from his, Malcom's and Jennifer's memories. Since the memories were wiped, Malcom turned evil again and re-loaded the Kilokhan virus. This is when Servo and Kilo fought for a second time, and again, Kilo had the advantage as he deleted lots of Servo's equipment, however, Servo was able to defeat him in the long run. So, effectively, Servo whooped Kilokhan on two occasions.


i would like to see it uploaded to a bit torrent site! i have always considered it Ultraman in cyberspace. or, are there DVDs of it somewhere?

Try the ' #power-rangers - irc.dejatoons.net ' channel (mIRC). I got 3 episodes from them via BitTorrent. I got another 2 episodes from the Ogre's Cave (PRE). These episodes are the ones that were originally released on the 3 SHSSS VHS tapes. Episodes other than these ones are hard, if not impossible to find.

When I look back on the show now, it was just one big ripp off to cash in on the success of Power Ranger but the show itself, while defintely no where near as good as PR, had some pretty cool moments.
