Oh my friggin’ God. That show was still on the air? Huh. Well, you learn something new every day.
Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers was finally cancelled after 17 years on the air, seemingly without warning. The show has been filmed in New Zealand since the early 2000′s despite being shuttled around to literally about 13 time slots on more networks than I can count on one hand.
The show reached its cultural zenith of children’s television in the early to mid 1990′s and has floundered ever since. It used to be THE show to watch. Wow. I can’t believe it was even still on the air.
The show followed the adventures of the Power Rangers who basically jumped around a lot and kicked various bad guys’ asses. I have no idea really if there was much of a point to it. All you need to know is that the Pink Ranger (played by Amy Jo Johnson) was a total babe.
The show has been through so many cast members, production companies, story lines and name changed (Power Rangers RPM, anyone? I thought not) that it had become a shell of what it used to be. Here’s to you, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Rest In Peace.
