In a twist, they took what was a case of this in the original ''SuperSentai'' and turned it into a MythologyGag. (''Sentai''[='s=] Bandora and Magiel were both played by the same actress, so ''Rangers'' had their counterparts Rita Repulsa and Mystic Mother be the same person).

* You don't know the name Erick Avari, but if you've watched movies or television, particularly sci-fi, any time in the past quarter-century you've seen him, guaranteed. Of Indian descent, he is often cast as non-specific (he's played ''24 different ethnicities'' in his career) Near or Central Asian paternal figures, such as Mohinder's father on ''{{Series/Heroes}}'' or the quasi-Egyptian chieftan in ''Film/StarGate''. He also specializes in bit management or academic roles, so if you need a flustered TV station executive, an operating room surgeon, or a helpful professor of archeology to translate some ancient runes, he's your guy. It's telling that out of 143 Website/IMDb credits as of 2014, the overwhelming majority are single-episode roles. Only '''three'''--''{{Franchise/Dragnet}}'', ''TheBrink'' and ''Series/DaysOfOurLives''--list him as being in more than five episodes.
