Rewatched Some More Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Green No More: Part 1
In ep 2x21, Tommy does not wear sleeves as he talks about his bio-scan. Tommy and Kimberley receive a message from a future Tommy. Nobody likes Bulk and Skull though nobody quite knows why. Tommy has a moral ethos. Any semblance of a normal life is gone for Tommy. What would he say if he knew he’d still be a power ranger 25 years later? Lord Zedd plots to get rid of Tommy.

Zack’s cousin shows up for no clear plot reason. Angel Grove shows no sign of damage from repeated zord battles. Tommy has spirited defiance. Zedd is inherently hostile to Tommy. Evil counterparts of the MMPR show up. They even wear the same colours. The Trini counterpart has more personality as well as a leather skirt. The Jason and Billy equivalents also have more personality. There is no Tommy counterpart. Bulk and Skull recoil in fear from the gobby teenagers aka future dark rangers.

A scene later Tommy is in a completely different outfit. He only has the power left for one last fight. Jason and his ugly board shorts and white ankle socks does karate on the beach with Zack. Zedd somehow unmorphs the power rangers. Billy tries to emote ‘shock and concern’. Zedd drains Tommy’s powers and there is evil laughing. Tommy’s in grave danger. A scene later, Tommy is back in his original outfit. WTF? How do the MMPR breathe in their helmets?

Trini wears a belly shirt and genie pants. At the same time. Jason does dull surprise acting. The MMPR’s morphing call hasn’t changed. There are no precautionary approaches. Why is Jason always yelling as the red ranger? The over-polite teenagers and their insane magical superpowers pledge to fight dark powers. Karate Jesus Tommy broods and summons the dragonzord. Zedd does things to unnerve. Tommy nearly passes out and ends up in a cornfield. There is an ass shot. Nice.

Best Lines:
“Lord Zedd’s been after me.”

“We revel in your evil brilliance Lord Zedd!”

“Check out this youth center.”

“This strange crystal.”

“I’m all alone.”

“Power geeks!”

“Defend the world.”

“Enough of your bleating!”

“Zedd’s at it again.”

“Only you can decide your own destiny.”

“What a funky looking shell.”

“Angel Grove belongs to us now!”

“Arrogant, nasty, disrespectful! Thos are my 5 warriors!”

“Tearing up the city.”

“Major zord power.”

“Puny power ranger friends.”

Green No More: Part 2
In ep 2x13, Goldar cackles like a madman as he menaces the powerless Tommy. Goldar does evil gloating and fascist mind-tortures at Tommy. With his green ranger powers gone, Tommy has to take on Goldar the space baboon dog thing and a ravenous mollusc all by his unpowered self. Of course Zedd erasing the green ranger was undone 4 eps and came back to bite him in the ass when Tommy was made into the even more powerful white ranger.

Apparently Tommy wasn’t originally meant to be the white ranger. Someone else had been cast and Jason David Frank was to play the lead in the horrendous ‘VR Troopers’ but due to fan response, the actors switched roles and Tommy became the white ranger. Zedd the dehydrated ham plots. Is the Jason counterpart the guy who ended up becoming the new red ranger? The dark rangers do nothing. Goldar is gloating over Tommy and then is back on the moon and then is back gloating at Tommy.

There are murky circumstances as Tommy does dramatic kicking. Where did his shoes go? Tommy’s still a hero and shows off his armpit hair and smashes Zedd’s evil crystal with his bare fists. This gives him his powers back for one last fight. This was okay. Tommy doesn’t do much during the battle. Tommy has bravery and defiance if not emotional range. Zedd pursues Tommy personally with the end goal of removing him. Poor Tommy, always the subject of personal vendettas.

Where did the green ranger’s ray gun come from? Being harassed by Goldar was an undignified experience for Tommy. The dark rangers are of little interest and Jason decides he can stop them being mean if he just asks them really nicely. There is no difference between the dark rangers being themselves and having their mind enraptured by the forces of evil. Tommy has dignity and strength. Kimberley says they should befriend the bad kids. Jason pays $4:50 for 5 sodas for the bad kids. Have Tommy and Kimberley banged yet?

This was the good era before Justin the kid ranger in ‘Turbo’, Zedd and his duct taped staff marrying Rita, Kimberley dumping Tommy via a letter, the forgettable ‘Zeo’, Kat, Jason returning and the really complicated ‘Turbo’ morphing hand gestures. All of which was just garbage.

Best Lines:
“You want me, come and get me!”

“You horrible little human!”

“No rest for the doomed!”

“A gallant hero you used to be green ranger.”

“The greatness you once were Tommy, cos it’s all over now!”

“Where are the power rangers when we need them?”
