Here’s another great one that Shout! Factory is releasing on August 21st! Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Season One, Volume One – 3 Disc Set! I remember when this first aired on television! My son was a HUGE fan, probably borderline obsessed when they re-ran the series in the later 90s (the originals ran between 93-95). There were so many little kids running around in those costumes with the wrist bands doing the crazy Mighty Morphin Power Ranger moves. I always found it amusing that there was controversy around the show because it was amongst the first to show ‘violence’ in a children’s program…. honestly?
After 10,000 years of imprisonment, the evil sorceress Rita Repulsa and her loyal minions are freed when astronauts on a routine mission in space accidentally open her dumpster prison on the moon. Filled with rage, Rita decides to conquer the nearest planet Earth. But her arch nemesis – the heroic sage Zordon – has been patiently waiting in preparation for this day. With the assistance of his wisecracking robotic sidekick Alpha 5, Zordon recruits a team of `five teenagers with attitude’ – Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Billy and Trini – to receive superpowers beyond their wildest dreams and defend the Earth as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Aided by giant robotic vehicles modeled after dinosaurs called Zords, the Power Rangers fight back the evil alien hordes of Rita Repulsa.
