Who wants to see Judge David Johnson's Megazord?
"Leave my mother out of this!"
Volume 5 brings the final seven episodes of the Operation Overdrive saga. Fight back those tears!
"Red Ranger Unplugged"
• "Home and Away, Part 1"
• "Home and Away, Part II"
• "Way Back When"
• "Two Fallen Foes"
• "Nothing to Lose"
• "Crown and Punishment"
And that's all, folks. After five volumes worth of screaming and hyperactive martial arts and lumbering plastic nightmares and obtuse storytelling and plot devices and more pyrotechnics than all Whitesnake concerts put together, the tales of the Operation Overdrive Power Rangers have come to an end. There's enough brain-blistering sensory overload to wire the young viewers, and, combined with a steady infusion of chocolate cereal, possibly generate a clean, renewable energy source.
As ludicrous and cheesy as the series is, I have to confess, I kind of enjoyed it. And if I were 9 years old, I'd probably think it was the greatest thing ever. The series wraps up predictably (the Pinocchio comparisons will be unavoidable), but satisfactorily.
Full frame and 2.0 stereo continue to be the technical specs and a featurette on the Rangers' life lessons and the final installment of the interactive trivia-based "training course" game complete the extras.
