It's Morphin Time: Ranking Every 'Power Rangers' Series
With the Power Rangers movie out in theaters now, the long-running tokusatsu series is getting more attention than ever, and we are happy to provide far more information than you require. We've got our ongoing episode guide to the original Mighty Morphin, but today, we're doing what we do best: Arranging every installment of the long-running franchise into a definitive (and only slightly arbitrary) list.
‘Power Rangers’ Review: The Teenage Superhero Reboot Is Surprisingly Fun
‘Power Rangers’ Review: The Teenage Superhero Reboot Is Surprisingly Fun
The joy of the Power Rangers TV series was how campy it was. It was pure fun to watch teenagers jump around in nerdy spandex suits, fly giant robot machines, and fight ridiculous monsters (one was called Mr. Ticklesneezer, another was, I kid you not, Chunky Chicken). To make a modern Power Rangers movie you can either embody that wacky spirit, scrap it for a gritty reboot, or try to do both with middling results. Saban’s Power Rangers takes the latter route, updating the ‘90s series as an edgier, darker origin story with shards of silliness. The problem is, Power Rangers is never quite sure if it wants to distance itself from the source material or embrace it.

It’s (Morphin) Time for Some ‘Power Rangers’ Movie Secrets
If you’ve seen Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, you definitely remember the alien warrior Dulcea. But did you know that Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay was cast in the role at one point, and even filmed several scenes for the movie? Eventually, producers decided she wasn’t right for the part and replaced her. That’s just one of the mighty facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
The New ‘Power Rangers’ Features a Gay Superhero
The New ‘Power Rangers’ Features a Gay Superhero
This past week, Beauty and the Beast raised quite a few public eyebrows (mostly in Malaysia) with its so-called ‘exclusively gay moment,’ in which Josh Gad’s LeFou fleetingly reveals that he like-likes Gaston. While this was not breaking news to any gaydar-equipped viewers of the 1991 original, it still made quite a splash online, with conservative voices objecting to the homosexual agenda imposing on innocent kids' entertainment and progressives leaning the other way, calling for a more meaningful expression of queer identity than a three-second glimpse of two men waltzing.

Go Go Read the Early ‘Power Rangers’ Reviews
This week’s most high-profile release is the big Power Rangers reboot (I’m sorry, that’s Haim Saban‘s Power Rangers, please nobody sue me) and the earliest round of reviews has begun to surface over the past few day or so. They are, to put it somewhat charitably, mixed. The early consensus is that the film squanders what could have been remake-ready material — a multiethnic group of telegenic teens working together to form a gigantic robot that battles evil aliens sounds like a pretty hard concept to foul up — with a generic and often painfully unfunny take.

'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' #13 Reveals The Sentries
One of the most interesting developments in Power Rangers has come in the pages of Boom's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic, in which Billy and Zack have journeyed to a nightmare dystopia where Tommy never overcame his evil origins, and conquered the world as Emperor Drakkon. He's not keeping the power to himself, though --- he's given the Rangers' power to a team of elite (and evil) warriors, designed by Jamal Campbell in collaboration with Saban Brands. They are... the Power Ranger Sentries.

So far, the new Power Rangers movie has unleashed nine (9) whole TV spots upon us that, all together, pretty much allow us to piece together the entire plot of the movie. Five kids somehow get glowing coins, stumble upon a spaceship that grows colorful suits on their bodies, and then Rita Repulsa shows up with her magic staff to wreak havoc on their small town of Angel Grove. These teens will have to acclimate to their new superpowers, learn how to drive their prehistoric creature-shaped Zords, and save the world, all while trying to survive high school!
