Give him a spandex jumpsuit and watch Judge David Johnson roll.
"I wish I had the sword Excelsior then I can use its power to destroy
When we last saw our pals the Operation Overdrive Power Rangers, they were locked in a mortal struggle with bad guys in plastic suits for the fate of the world. The Forces of Good and the Forces of Evil are in a race to find the magic jewels of the Corona crown, which will give its owner unbridled power.
Volume 4 barfs up six more episodes:
• "Once a Ranger, Part 1"
• "Once a Ranger, Part II"
• "One Fine Day"
• "Ronny on Empty, Part 1"
• "Ronny on Empty, Part 2"
• "Things Not Said"
So many explosions, so many plastic toys, so much evil on a cosmic scale. These Operation Overdrive episodes are probably the worst things you could show to children, besides, maybe, hardcore German pornography. OK, that's overstating things. But it really is amazing how ridiculously overproduced these shows are. Flush with constant laser blasts and senseless pyrotechnics and sword-fighting and gun-blasting and somersaults and did I mention the senseless pyrotechnics, Operation Overdrive is primed to nuke any unsuspecting kid's senses.
Yet I couldn't look away. And that plot twist in "Things Not Said" was actually shocking.
Full frame and 2.0 stereo for the technical merits and a featurette on the Rangers' genetic enhancements and an interactive trivia-based "training course" game for the extras.
