I want a Piaget necklace and the Divas Dream necklace by Bvlgari. I also want jersey leggings and a Harry Winston Premier Feathers watch and a London Glassblowing cascade perfume bottle. I’d also like a 19th century mystery clock and a Cartier rose-gold, diamond and emerald Revelation d’ure panther. I also like a silk organza dress.

The Mutiny: Part 1
The dirt biking is like ‘Mad Max’ only not. The rangers race dirt bikes and wear helmets that match their ranger colours. The skinless Lord Zedd and his metal posing pouch prances. Zedd points out that Rita’s been defeated over and over and over and over again by teenagers with attitude. This was not thrillingly lurid.
Tommy’s forlorn. Rita’s put back in her dumpster. You can see the zips on the putties costumes. Lord Zedd is a worrying problem. Tommy’s kick misses a putty by at least a foot. There is a hideous situation. Bulk and Skull hear the rangers speaking but don’t recognise them. Where is Zordon’s HQ? Tommy’s gold shield is ridic. Zedd creates a monster from a goldfish. This was flaccid.
“Character of command.”
“Spineless snivelling attitude.”
“Oh my gosh!”
“You were defeated by children!”
“Somebody worse than Rita?”

The Mutiny: Part 3

“Stupid power rangers.”
“You over-grown herring!”
“The depths of the Earth from whence they came.”
White Light: Part 1
Beauty And The Beast
Kimberley gets a face full of magic dust and wears modesty shorts under her skirt. Kimberley ends up in Rita’s old costume and waving Rita’s old staff. Kimberley does a hilarious impersonation of Rita and screeches and scares Zedd’s goons. She’s deeply unhappy without Tommy, as were the fans.
“YOU’RE GIVING ME A HEADACHE!”
Zedd’s Monster Mash
Tommy is dressed as a pirate. Is Tommy wearing lipgloss? Do the rangers ever go to school? Putties disguise themselves as kids dressed up as the MMPR. Tommy is in peril as putties attack him. Where did his do-rag go? Where did Zedd’s snake go? Why is a monster Scottish? Bulk and Skull are roundly eyed with suspicion and disapproval. You can see the wires holding the pink ranger up as she does flips. Tommy does a lot of unmorphed fighting to show off Jason David Frank’s martial arts skills. This was good. Tommy rides his tigerzord. Zedd utters malicious death treats. Tommy is darker and edgier which made him the standout among the MMPR and their supernatural lycra.
Welcome To Venus Island
This was idiotic. Zedd does monstrous things. Tommy has long hair. A kick misses Trini. You can see the zips in the MMPR costumes. Tommy refuses to join the forces of evil, again. Tommy nearly passes out and fears being evil, again. This was undramatic. Bulk and Skull get a dead on description of the green and red rangers and still don’t guess their identities. What sort of teens would want to be magical warriors led by an ancient sorcerer facing down evil space aliens who use magic?
This show was controversial back in the day for being ‘violent’ and non-union. Jason David Frank had a wife and two kids whilst filming this show. He and David Yost who played Billy were best friends. They had huge open casting calls to cast this show, they cast people with martial arts training who could fight adequately on screen with no direction. So they choreographed their own fights. One question: how did Tommy play his magic flute with his helmet on?
“Trim this weed.”
“Lost his evil control.”
“Long brown hair, hazel eyes, very muscular.”
