So, when we last left Angel Grove, the Power Rangers were dealing with the threat of a new chief baddie, the evil Lord Zedd. The first creature he has unleashed is the strange Pirantishead, which has succeeded in using its weird freeze breath to disable to Rangers’ zords. That is, except for the T-Rex zord, which is now under Lord Zedd’s control. Let’s see what happens next in The Mutiny, Part II. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:02 E:02

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Season 1 Recap

Well, it took quite a bit of time, but we managed to make it through the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers…60 episodes in all. Compared to most shows, that’s an awful lot of episodes for just one season. Remember, though, at this point in the show’s history it was a daily program, airing every weekday afternoon. The first season proved to be very popular with kids. By Christmas of 1993, Power Rangers toys were all in huge demand. I was working at a department store at the time and any time Power Rangers toys came in they would be gone within just minutes of being put on the sales floor. There was controversy, as well. Many parents felt the show was a bit too violent for its target audience. What do they know, though. I sure had a lot of fun checking out this series. Before we move on, let’s take a look back at the first season. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Season 1 Recap

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:60

Well Citizens of Angel Grove, we’ve finally made it to the final episode of season one for the Power Rangers. My apologies for it taking so long. As I said with my last Batman post, work and computer problems got in the way of a timely post. This one is worth the wait, though, as we close the season with one of the most unintentionally inappropriate episodes the series has seen. Here we go with the season finale, An Oyster Stew.

Batman Season 3 Recap

First things first, citizens of Gotham, allow me to apologize for the delay in posting this season three recap. A busy work schedule and computer repairs conspired to delay this post. Now that things are back to normal, let’s take a moment to close out our time with the Caped Crusaders with some final thoughts on the less-than-stellar third and final season of Batman. Continue reading Batman Season 3 Recap

Batman S:03 E:26 (Series Finale)

Episode Title: Minerva, Mayhem and Millionaires
Original Airdate: March 14, 1968

Well, as they say, all good things must come to an end. We have reached the 120th, and final, episode of Batman. The question, though, is if this series goes out on a high note or not. As we know, the third season of the series has been a bit shaky. Let’s find out what happens when Zsa Zsa Gabor is up to no good in Minerva, Mayhem and Millionaires. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:26 (Series Finale)

Batman S:03 E:25

Episode Title: The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra
Original Airdate: March 7, 1968

In recent years, the lack of major films directed by women has become quite a hot-button issue. As we speak, Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig is only the fifth woman to ever be nominated for a best director Academy Award. However, though underrepresented, women have been directing movies since the dawn of film. One pioneer in the field was Ida Lupino. She had an over 40 year long career working as an actress and directed several films along the way. Today, she shows up in Gotham City as Dr. Cassandra Spellcraft in our penultimate episode, The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:25

Episode Title: Mighty Morphin’ Mutants
Original Airdate: May 16, 1994

We’ve got just two episode to go here in the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Rita’s still got a few tricks up her sleeve, though. This time she dishes out a foe that many a superhero has had to face…evil twins. As if that weren’t enough, she throws in a giant crayfish for good measure. Here comes Mighty Morphin’ Mutants.

Batman S:03 E:24

Episode Title: The Joker’s Flying Saucer
Original Airdate: February 29, 1968

We are down to the last few episodes of Batman and we have seen all the major villains put in their final appearances. That is, with one notable exception. It seems appropriate that the biggest of all of Batman’s foes should be the last iconic villain to put in an appearance on this show. We bid farewell to Cesar Romero’s take on the clown prince of crime in today’s episode, The Joker’s Flying Saucer. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:24

Batman S:03 E:23

Episode Title: I’ll be a Mummy’s Uncle
Original Airdate: February 29, 1968

This series, though known for its interpretation of several famous Batman villains from the comics, also created several new bad guys throughout its run. Without question, my favorite of all the crooks created for this series is King Tut, as portrayed by Victor Buono. We’re just a few episodes away from the end of the series, though, which brings us to the final appearance of the Yale professor who thinks he’s Egyptian royalty. Here he is in I’ll be a Mummy’s Uncle. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:23
