J. Michael Straczynski was the writer of the last episode of the series. He commented about Pilot's death, revealing that the scene was inspired by an especially tragic event in his own past.[4]

"I've never talked about this before—said I was in a thoughtful mood—but I've known several people, friends, who've taken their own lives. In one case, I spoke to her just beforehand. Tried, through the phone lines, to reach her one more time, pull her back from the edge. I couldn't. Years pass. Time comes for me to write the last filmed episode of Power."'

"Jennifer Chase is going to die, partly of her injuries, partly of her own volition. Part of my life went into that scene, in the way it was constructed, and what was said. And what was not said, what never had the chance to be said, and thus still burns. I knew that, at the crucial moment of that scene, he couldn't be near her, as I wasn't near my friend...it had to be long-distance, hearing but not seeing her, and the terrible pain of arriving too late. I cannot watch that episode without crying. Ever."

I had Captain Planet toys and I was familiar with the television show, but I discovered this about thirty seconds before I posted it. Pretty wild.

I had such a huge crush on Pilot when I was a kid. I remember this episode so well.

Captain Power came along at just the right time. Transformers had just gone out of vogue but not quite everyone had a nintendo yet. The perfect kid's toy market to fill.

Having not watched any of this show as a kid but being a big fan of Babylon 5, you can really see the similar themes and characters that JMS uses.

Very good, I always appreciate it when a "kids" show isn't pandering or condescending.

All I remember of this show from being a kid is that they wanted you to buy a toy gun and then get up at 6 in the damn morning to shoot at the screen with it. I passed.
FABIO
You must have been a very boring kid.

memedumpster
Yeah, those things were fun. The animated tapes were a fucking blast.

I thought this whole show was just a delusion in my childhood memories until now.

kingarthur
Not boring...okay, maybe. It was more the whole get up at 6AM on a weekend thing. That's the part that wasn't happening.

I also missed a lot of X-Men because it would come on at 4AM. I was also a late riser.

They just don't make poorly acted kids shows like they used to.

Captain Power: And she was pregnant with my child.
Hawk: Your child? She said it was mine!
Tank: She also told me it was mine.
Scout: Me too.

This was a neat little show.

You'd never get away with something like this now a days. Great stuff.

Huh. I always seem to pass up Captain Power tapes when i go VHS hunting, but this reminds me a lot of Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad and Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills. I might have to pick one up next hunt.
