Disaster (and very chaste romance) strike the Green Ranger on the podcast this week, as we watch the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers episode ‘The Green Candle, Part 2’ with Kaley!
- We discuss the Free Comic Book Day Power Rangers comic, which revives our favourite secondary Power Rangers character that is a ‘scientifically’ enchanced Volkswagen Beetle.
- Sentai are doing a dinosaur themed Power Rangers team-up, which sees their equivalents of MMPR, Dino Thunder and Dino Charge band together. If we don’t get one of these, we’re gonna be so sad, you guys. Like, sitting-in-an-empty-bathtub-eating-ice-cream-from-the-tub-whilst-weeping sad.
- Mat about the episode: “It actually had some dramatic weight to it… which was profoundly surprising.” Michael: “With actors who could act, it would have been touching.”
- We’re not proud of our use of the phrase “going into her dark dimension.”
- “The notion that Bulk and Skull just go and fuck around playing Monkeys In The Grass is the least surprising thing to happen in this episode.”
- “On the coolness hierarchy, I think robot above tank.”
AND SO MUCH MORE!!
- The first volume of Papercutz’s Power Rangers comics should have come out today, with the second volume due out in October. It’s not out as I write this adaptation, but it’s still yesterday.
- The multi-team team-up that Mat’s talking about is called Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: Dinosaur Great Battle! Farewell, Eternal Friends, because the Japanese are better at titles than we are.
- Buy Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Season 1 Volume 1 or Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Complete Series on DVD from Amazon.
