Something has been brewing for some time in the Power Rangers universe that finally comes out in this week’s episode. From the beginning, Jason has always been the leader of the group. But then, part way into the season, there came this hotshot named Tommy. The green boy not only is the superior martial artist, but he’s also a ladies man. Kimberly’s been making goo-goo eyes at him for half the season now. So, who will be the true leader of the group? Let’s see what happens in today’s episode, On Fins and Needles.

Episode Title: Second Chance
Original Airdate: May 4, 1994

Sports were never my thing when I was a kid. I never have been very athletic. The one organized sport I did play for a time was soccer. I usually played a midfield position. I wasn’t very good, but I could kick the ball forward if it came to me, and that was pretty much my job. Well, it seems that soccer is pretty popular in Angel Grove, too. In today’s episode of Power Rangers our heroes have to kick around a strange giant armadillo, soccer style in Second Chance. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:55

Episode Title: Fowl Play
Original Airdate: May 2, 1994

Shows like Power Rangers are what filled the kids block programming schedules in the 90’s, but when I was a kid in the 70’s and 80’s, most of that time was filled with classic cartoons. Stuff like Popeye, Tom and Jerry, and Woody Woodpecker. Well, on this visit to Angel Grove we get a very different type of woodpecker than the classic cartoon character. It’s time for some monster bird action in Fowl Play. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:53

Episode Title: Two Heads are Better than One
Original Airdate: April 29, 1994

Rita and her gang have come up with some pretty weird monsters over the course of this first Power Rangers season. Some of the creatures have at least been based off of some pretty ferocious real world animals. Every now and then, though we get one that seems to have come out of some insane acid trip. Case in point: a two-headed parrot. That’s what we get this week in Two Heads are Better than One. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:52

Episode Title: Return of an Old Friend Part 1
Original Airdate: February 28, 1994

Over the course of the last 40+ episode of Power Rangers there is one big question I’ve had, “don’t these kids have parents?” I mean think about it, giant monsters attack Angel Grove left and right, yet we’ve never seen any sign of parental units for any of our five teenage heroes. We’ve seen plenty of uncles, but no actual parents. That changes now in today’s episode, Return of an Old Friend part 1. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:49

Episode Title: Plague of the Mantis
Original Airdate: February 17, 1994

Our adventures with evil members of the animal kingdom continues with this week’s episode of Power Rangers. This time we have a monster insect, and if you’re going to have a monster insect…this is the one to pick. Let’s face it, Mantis’ are scary. The female eats the male after bumpin’ uglies. I doubt we’ll see any of that in this week’s episode, Plague of the Mantis. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:48

Episode Title: To Flea or not to Flea
Original Airdate: February 15, 1994

Quite a few of the monsters featured on this series have been based on animals. There are a lot of vicious creatures out there in nature, after all. Sometimes, though, the makers of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers had to turn to some lesser members of the animal kingdom. So, in this episode the rangers are going to get fleas in To Flea or not to Flea. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:46

Episode Title: Crystal of Nightmares
Original Airdate: February 14, 1994

The pressures of creating episode after episode of a hit TV series can be pretty high. Most weekly shows end up churning out about 24 episodes each season, but in the case of a daily show like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the producers had to come up with 60 episodes. So, you can’t really fault them for turning to that tried and true method of making a quick cheap episode…the clip show. Here it comes in the form of Crystal of Nightmares.
