The Green Ranger Goes Full ‘Die Hard’ When ‘Power Rangers Dino Charge’ Returns Next Saturday
Friends, our national nightmare is almost over. As I'm sure you're already aware, there hasn't been a new episode of Nickelodeon's Power Rangers Dino Charge since April, when the show took a break for the summer and left us all wondering if our favorite teenage natural history museum employees --- and, you know, color coded superheroes --- would ever return to save us all from the interplanetary threat of Sledge.
Now, at last, we are on the verge of the Rangers' return. Next Saturday, August 22 at noon, the show is back with "When Logic Fails," a new episode that finds the Rangers trapped in a strange maze while some genuinely terrifying medical experiments are going on with the monsters. And to get the word out, they've sent us an exclusive clip where Riley, the Green Ranger, discovers exactly what a TV dinner feels like.
If you haven't been keeping up with the show --- which is based on the Japanese Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger --- the basic idea is that the Rangers are fighting to protect the dinosaur-themed Energems from space crooks. The two in the clip above, Fury and Wrench, are two of Sledge's lieutenants, and apparently they're trying to figure out how to harness the power of the Energems for themselves in something that looks like a sparsely appointed torture chamber.
The official description for the episode hints that it might not be entirely based around crawling through vents, but that we're going to get an entire mind-boggling maze out of it, too: "Riley's logical mind is put to the test when the Rangers are trapped in a real-life maze by Fury and one of his henchmen."
Power Rangers Dino Charge airs on Saturdays at 12 pm ET/PT, 11 C on Nickelodeon.
