Power Rangers Megaforce: Vol. 1

It’s certainly no secret: I love the Power Rangers, and honestly only a fraction of that affection is ironic. Sure, from an academic standpoint I’m fascinated by the production of Power Rangers, which forces writers to fashion new, average-American-friendly narratives out of footage from Japanese series. But then, I also love kung fu and giant, […]

Power Rangers Samurai: Vol. 5

With the release of Power Rangers Samurai: The Ultimate Duel, I’ve at last made my way through every single episode of the Samurai/Super Samurai saga (constituting the series’ 18th and 19th seasons, respectively). And I’m sure I’ve said it before, but it definitely begs repeating: this is great Power Rangers! Sure, the Halloween episode may […]

In these, the thirteenth through sixteenth episodes of Power Rangers Samurai (which is itself the eighteenth season in Saban’s Power Rangers franchise), we at last meet the energetic but conspicuously long-absent Antonio of the series’ title sequence. Although a close childhood friend of Red Ranger Jayden, Antonio is fundamentally not like the others. Aside from […]

Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad: Volume 1

| February 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

Airing for one season from 1994-95, Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad was a decidedly transparent and cheap attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The series was produced according to that distinctly ‘80s model of children’s television production where the demands of promoting a toy line took precedence over the creation of […]

Power Rangers Super Samurai: The Complete Season

| December 4, 2012 | 1 Comments

The last few releases of Saban’s Power Rangers Samurai and Super Samurai from Lionsgate have found me complaining here, at length, about a release schedule so broken that it seemed like Lionsgate may have been actively trying to discourage the Power Rangers fan base from purchasing their product. But for the first time since their […]

Power Rangers: From Mighty Morphin to Lost Galaxy

Do I really need to explain what Power Rangers is? Is there anyone out there who has yet to experience this media phenomenon even least in passing? It seems impossible to me that anyone born before 1993 when Saban’s Power Rangers premiered could have been bypassed by the nearly 20-year-old series’ iconic imagery of spandex-clad […]

Power Rangers Samurai: Christmas Together, Friends Forever

Lionsgate’s bizarre home video release schedule for Power Rangers Samurai persists with the October 16, 2012 release of Christmas Together, Friends Forever, the second of two releases in a row compiling three holiday-themed episodes of Power Rangers with a single Samurai episode at its core. Of course, for as much I’ve complained about this bonkers […]

Lionsgate Entertainment’s scatterbrained home video release schedule for Power Rangers Samurai continues in their latest Rangers title, Monster Bash, coming to DVD September 11, 2012. Lionsgate previously offered up the first eight of Samurai‘s 23 episodes in two DVD volumes in June of this year. Two months later, they pushed out the first eight episodes […]
