There are some amazing shows, movies, books, comics and a whole bunch of other things out there, check out this week’s Fandom Card.
Franchise: Power Rangers
Fandom Name: Ranger Nation
Type of media: Live Action TV, Movies and Comics
What’s it about: The PR franchises is based around teenagers being recruited to help protect the earth from evil invading forces. They do this my using “morphers” which give them the ability to become helmeted superheros and giant fight robots known as “Zords” usually with a theme based for that series. It started in 1993 with the debut of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and since then has had 23 seasons with the most recent being Power Rangers Dino Charge which debuted in 2015. Each series is based off the original Japanese sentai works, using villains and the ranger’s suits but not normally following the original story.
Where can you check it out (Officially):
Most series of PR comes through Netflix at one point or another, however due to the licensing rights, if you wish to watch various episodes a quick google search will reveal the best places to view them.
Where to start:
To be clear, Power Rangers started as a 90’s children show adapting footage from the Sentai series, meaning the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is dated and considered even by fans as cheesy. If this doesn’t bother you, feel free to start at the beginning. If however you are not sure if you could stomach that, start with the most recent series Power Rangers Dino Charge which came out in 2015
The latest incarnation is the Power Rangers Movie which is a modern take on the series and is due to be release this month (March 2017).
