The profoundly lovely Sarah joins us on the show for the first time, as we watch the episode Power Ranger Punks. It might be the most groan inducing episode yet.
Some things that come up on this episode:
- The flying penny farthing returns! Thank the heavens!
- Are you infected with the Punk? That’s okay, we learn the secret to curing Punkishness! Spoiler warning: It involves a shrieking vegetable.
- We get deep into Zordon’s back story in this episode. Turns out it involves him being a kick arse ninja wizard thing! With a body! Who knew!
- FEAR THE TERROR TOAD! Or burst out laughing as soon as you see him, as Sarah does. Your choice, I guess.
- “Sometimes it was laser, sometimes it wasn’t.” – That’s Sarah discussing a tongue.
- AW SHIT IT’S A VOLLEYBALL-OFF EVERYBODY!!
And much more!
- Mike McCraw’s Power Rangers animations are all available on his Vimeo; he also has some concept sketches on his DeviantArt.
- Love & Monsters is the Doctor Who episode that we were discussing, featuring the Abzorbaloff. Michael stands by the opinion that it’s nowhere near as bad as everyone seems to think it is. Mat remembered it when he saw the Abzorbaloff, because let’s be honest there’s no way you’re ever going to forget the Abzorbaloff.
