THE MEDIA BUSINESS: Advertising; New Zealand Markets Itself As Film Land of the Rings
Soaring in a single-engine Cessna over the snow-covered crests and peaks of Fiordland National Park, Robert Rutherford pointed to the cockpit window as he spoke to American tourists bundled in earmuff radios: Here you can imagine Gandalf flying on the eagle through the mountains, when he escaped from the tower. O.K., no white wizards were spotted, but as the small plane rolled to a stop in a grassy sheep meadow here, the landscape did conjure up scenes from The Lord of the Rings, the movie trilogy.. New Zealand is trying to boost tourism on strength of The Lord of the Rings, film trilogy that was shot there, and to market itself as second Canada for Hollywood productions seeking to save money on location; much of Rings tourism is focused on South Island, where scenery is wilder and populaton is sparser than on North Island; The Last Samurai, Tom Cruise movie, will start filming in New Zealand in January, and filming of Power Rangers is being moved from US to Wellington; photo (M)

TV Notes;New, Improved Rangers
When last we left the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, they were on the brink of destruction. Their Zeo Crystal had been shattered, its pieces flung to the winds; their temporary helpmates, the Alien Rangers, had fled Earth; and the Power Rangers steel-girded command center had exploded, leaving them powerless and fearing that their master, Zordon, had perished. Devotees among 2- to 11-year-olds were left, back on Feb. 17, with a kiddie version of a cliffhanger. Granted, it hasnt created quite the buzz of Who shot J. R.? on Dallas, or Who shot Mr. Burns? on The Simpsons. But the idea was the same: to whip up renewed interest in a well-established series that, being so familiar, had seen its ratings level off.

But the show has a new gimmick: Jason David Frank, who starred in the very first series as Tommy Oliver, returns as Dr. Oliver, a science teacher at Reefside High S playing the rangers. Tommy Oliver is an older character but completely grown up. Hes now in a leadership role as a teacher. Hes part of the team..

Ideas & Trends; Go Go Paranoia!
THERE are, to judge from the front pages and the 11 oclock news, three great forces menacing the post cold war world. They are: the rising tide of ferocious nationalisms, the collapse of NATO and Power Rangers. Whole countries -- Canada and New Zealand, for now -- have banned the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television show. Otherwise sensible people, forgetting that small boys have never needed an excuse to kick each other on playgrounds, suddenly perceive a shocking increase in violence among the young that they attribute to the show, and to the dolls and toys it spawned.
Why Wait? Messier for Mayor, and Anything Else He Wants to Be
Here in New York, sports superstars are not dropped on our doorstep or stuffed down our chimney nearly often enough.

But in recent decades, there simply have not been enough teams out there like the 1920 Boston Red Sox, anxious to hand over Babe Ruth for $125,000, no draft picks and the rights to nobody.

. And a Parents Guide to the Politics of Angel Grove
IN THE BEGINNING, THERE WERE five Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Jason, Zack, Billy, Kimberly and Trini. Two seasons and countless karate kicks later, there are (as of this writing) six rangers on Foxs inexplicably popular childrens series. Meanwhile, their names, powers, colors and technozords (fighting machines, to those who havent been inside a Toys R Us lately) have changed at a pace that only a true ranger devotee could follow. For those who have been on Neptune since August 1993, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is the top-rated childrens television show, one that grafts stories about teen-age do-gooders onto campy Japanese kung-fu fighting footage. If you are a parent, however, you may have spent much of the past year and a half trying to outrun the ranger marketing juggernaut.

For POWER RANGERS, Bikinis Are Not The Issue
If the words Go, go, Power Rangers! dont make you hear the television theme song ringing in your head, if you have to ask what a zord is, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers have bypassed your household, saving you a bundle of money. If, on the other hand, you actually know that Tommy is the White Ranger and Billy is the Blue Ranger, you are bound to end up at Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. It may give you a headache, if only from thinking about all the new toys it will spawn, but your 5-year-old will probably find it irresistible, more than once. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are to children today exactly what the Teen-age Mutant Ninja Turtles were to children five years ago: a television series about martial-arts teen-agers who turn into superheros, a merchandising gold mine, and finally a movie. The film resembles three episodes of the television series strung together, with slightly better, splashier special effects. (Given the shabby production values of the series, that isnt hard.)
