Power Rangers Logos“You know what I want to do?” I said to a friend recently. “I want to go back and watch all the Power Rangers episodes, from the very first one to the present day.”

“And people say you’re not cool,” he scoffed, because he’s a jerk. “What do you mean, the present day?”

“It’s still on the air!” I exclaimed. And it is indeed. While the Mighty Morphin’ iteration may be long gone, the zords live on in such evocatively-entitled outings as Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, and Power Rangers Jungle Fury. In all, there are 23 seasons of the show, comprising an astounding 857 episodes, and with Power Rangers Ninja Steel greenlit for 2017, I am slowly just now realizing that this self-imposed task is actually kind a big deal.

But with Netflix helpfully supplying the entire series’ back catalog, and my penchant for snarky commentary on things both sublime and ridiculous unchecked, I have decided that not only will I relive (or, in the case of the Tommy-less later seasons, discover) the adventures of that revolving cast of plucky teen superheroes from beginning to – presumably, some day? – end, but also that you can come along for the ride. You know, if you want.

So, twice a week, I’ll provide a new recap. See you next Tuesday for the pilot episode, “Day of the Dumpster.” Aiyaiyaiyaiyai!
