Episode Title: The Beetle Invasion
Original Airdate: September 21, 1994

The last time we had an invasion of beetles, the music world changed forever. That was a different kind of beetle, though. Those were B-E-A-T Beatles, which is a far cry from what Lord Zedd has in mind for the citizens of Angel Grove this week. We return to the realm of giant bugs with The Beetle Invasion.

Episode Title: The Power Stealer
Original Airdate: September 20, 1994

As you know from last time, we are in the middle of a multi-episode story arch centered on Tommy and the still somewhat weakened state of his superpowers.

Episode Title: Bloom of Doom
Original Airdate: September 17, 1994

We all know that when it comes to the Power Rangers universe, just about anything can become a monster that will cause property values to decrease in Angel Grove, California. We’ve seen all sorts of animals become monsters, and occasionally a plant. This week we return to the realm of botanical beasties. I guess it’s kind of appropriate considering the recent discovery of deadly giant hogweeds in Virginia. Let’s see what happens in this week’s episode, Bloom of Doom.

Episode Title: The Mutiny, Part III
Original Airdate: August 5, 1994

If you recall, when we last left Angel Grove the Power Rangers had a lot of trouble on their hands. Lord Zedd’s Pirantishead monster has control of the T-Rex Zord and the Dragon Zord and is using them against the rangers. The other zords are all out of commission. Sure, there are new zords available to use, but the rangers have to regain control of the captured zords first. So, Billy and Trini are off trying to build a signal blocker so they can get the zords back, while the other four try to keep the bad guys from tearing up the off-road race. Let’s see what happens next in The Mutiny, Part III. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:02 E:03

So, when we last left Angel Grove, the Power Rangers were dealing with the threat of a new chief baddie, the evil Lord Zedd.

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.
